Stuffing material obstructing airflow query:

Hello all,

I've lined a speaker box with deadening material and about to apply dampening material. I'm using 200gsm Dacron. I've had good results with this in my first speaker, and decided to use it again.

My baffle is 1" thick but rather narrow (external width: 7.5"). The inside of the baffle is too narrow to chamfer with my router.

Does anyone have experience with applying dampening material in this situation? Does Dacron impede airflow? Initially I had planned to line all panels. Perhaps I keep the SIDE panels near this area totally clear?

Here's a picture of the situation:

There is no simple and distinct answer to that question.

Stuffing material that is too close to a driver's backside can move with the airflow and will do this in a nonlinear fashion sometimes which will in turn lead to nonlinearities in the driver's behaviour.

So it is best to TRY it out.

Hello,

Thank you everybody.

I think my question was a bit convoluted, but after much consideration of all replices, I decided to do it this way:
