When installing speakers is it necessary to ensure it is totally sealed (from front to back) or will some small air gaps not make too much difference (although I assume it will make some difference). e.g. the holes where the speaker grill clips in to the door card.

I don't want to spend ages on some elaborate sealing for the whole door.. just to beef things up a bit.

Thanks

You just need to get a good seal between the back and the front of the speaker, all over the door. Best thing is to pull the door card off, apply some Dynamat to the door where the watershield is and then install the speaker with a gasket made out of dynamat as well.

They'll work without it, but as suggested the better the seal, and the sound deadening the better they'll sound, some people spend a fortune upgrading there speakers only to find they sound worse, al they really needed was to improve on the cars acoustic capabilitys and the standard stuff would sound better and the upgrade would be awsome laugh.gif
