Default Baffle recess question..

Just built some open baffles same as this design.

Endorphine from Kingston Kitchen


My front baffle thickness is 2.5 cm thick MDF. I am using a BMS 18" driver.
For this to sit flush It would need a 1.5cm recess.

Which would leave 1cm left on the baffle to screw the driver into - Is this enough?

To ask the question another way... Assuming the driver (bms 18n850v2) was
front mounted and not recessed - what would be the minimum suggested baffle
thickness?
