Default Rain guard I made, what do you think?

Here is a rain guard I made out of 1/8” steel. Do you guys think it will impair the sound ?

Wow, that's heavy duty.

I find, in my particular vehicle, that most of the moisture that makes it's way to the speaker actually splashes up from the bottom of the door. Wind (from the car moving) makes it's way between the lower door and rocker panel and up through the weep holes and blows rain water up from the bottom.

It's more like a bomb shelter! That is compete overkill... But I like overkill.

Yes, I know its ridiculous how it’s overkill!

But it’s just laser cut pieces that I get for cheap and 30min to weld and grind...

Wow! Now a coat of clear coat to prevent rust will help, the speakers will stay cooler also, moisture may take longer to dissipate.

I would also glue CCF inside the cage to insulate and prevent back wave resonance, or simple CLD will solve any issues.

Co-signing. Usually from the bottom unless window flashing is damaged.

I have an AC company down the street who throw away half filled buckets of mastic duct sealent every day. Try it, it’s rubberized and once it’s there it’s THERE. smeared between metal parts in a door that may vibrate it’s great. once it’s hard they won’t touch and it’s just soft enough to not make a sound when things tap against the mastic. It’s also waterproof! Seal that door up from the inside.

I coat my enclosure with this stuff every time using a drywall knife, then put the carpet on. They’re bomb proof. Stuffs like liquid nail, really.

Don’t get it on clothes or in your gfs hair.... it’ll be a bad day.

I’d just be sure not to completely seal the bottom of the door. Just in case water does somehow get in from the top, it can make its way back out the bottom.

Donít seal the weep holes at the bottom of the door. A lot for water gets past the window seal and into the door. Just have someone spray your window with a hose while you watch from inside with the interior door panel off and be amazed at what you see.

Also, that thing is way overkill but I like it. Will it affect the way the back wave effects the response though I donít know but some testing can verify that. I made my rain guards out of modified boom mat speaker baffles.
