You'll be getting less out the ports, and restricting ventilation around the magnet (if you're really hammering them), so I'd advise against it for high-power use.

ok, im just waiting on grilles now to call them done, but i glued a layer of accoustic(eggcarton) foam to the back, lower 1/3 of the cab. and also wrapped the tweeter horn in polycroft wadding. along with the new crossovers and new D220ti CD they sound very much full and clean. im yet to crank them up, but i can already hear that they sound better to me. im expecting that as the volume climbs, they will get more and more impressive until their SPL limit of course.
