I did the exact same thing in my car. folded over the dynamat and even cut out a piece of tin to make a MB 'shelter'.

Easy to do, cheap, and pretty effective.

use some antiseize on your wire connections and you're good to go.

stick to MB's without paper cones too and you'll be good

^^^ Yes, I think that's the idea- leave the bottom horizontal half open. I'll be trying this, or the tupperware bowl method someday.

Are speaker baffles not suited to block rain?

Wouldn't they have been an easier, cheaper, and equally effective to block rain as these custom made aluminum shields?

Enlighten me, gents!
most baffles make the speaker sound like ass cheese.

I used the stuff in the link below, just cut it with scissors. Easier to install and its held for a couple of years now and still feels like it did when new. My car is a G37 with the frameless window and the doors leak a little, right on top of my L8's. The L8's are now gone (rusted to death) but the new speakers are covered and stay dry with this contraption. Mine is cut in half (I only need to cover the top) with the back removed. This is soft water proof foam that can be very easily cut with scissors alone. Particularly good for people like me with very few tools at home.

I really liked this DIY and used this to protect my MB.

Also later then I developed this in proper plastic WaterGurad. Inspired by circa40's design and the credit goes to him only. I just used his basic idea and made it hassle free for the people who don't like DIYs.

check out the design at WaterGuard

Bump the old thread.... Interested to see this, but all the pics look dead. Anyone got a pic or two left from this to give me ideas? I'm assuming these are formed half umbrellas sealed to the inner door skin covering the MB?
