    It just seems to me you are trying to make two incongruous items work. You arent working with the car, you are fighting it. I think there are better choices to be made.

    the way I understand that drawing, is you have two vents facing forward (the space between each subwoofer pair) and the middle, where the ski hole is, needs to be blocked. This assumes, as you said,...

    I think you should take one of your existing subwoofers and correlate the actual sag with that website. if you get anywhere near 5%, if Xmax is above 20mm, 5% will be EASY to see with just a ruler.
