I'm making pods for my dash to hold Morel CCWR-245 mids and Morel Ultra tweeters. The pods are 3D printed out of ABS, they are solid and around 1/4" thick, sitting on 1/8" plastic sheet that has a 3" hole cut over the factory speaker location that opens up to the dash.

The speakers will be mounted to a 1/4" thick aluminum baffle.

My question is, should I fill them with Polyfil, or line them with sound deadener or something else or just leave it? I could even seal them back up.

I would do both
Thanks,
My only concern is having the deadener melt and release from the housing and stick to the speakers. I'm not sure how much heat it can handle, especially stuck to plastic. when I'm done painting them I'll put some deadener in there and let it sit on my dash and see what happens. If nothing else, I'll stick it to the bottom.

I'll try it out. unfortunately I applied the wrong type of clear coat at the end and it ruined the paint job, so I've been sanding and repainting them.
