I am thinking of changing sound damping in the speakers.....

Mods i am thinking of
1) Use sound damping spray on the inside of the baffle.
2) two layers of damping in the cab. remove the current foam.
1st Sonic Barrier Lightweight Vinyl Sound Damping Sheet
2nd Sonic Barrier 3/4" 3-Layer Damping Material

my aim is to increase the internal volume of the cabinet... i would like to know will this work or not?

thanks.

Damping sprays and damping sheets only help with defectively flimsy cabinets or enclosures that are inherently flimsy, such as car doors. Being curved your cabs aren't flimsy. And those products don't increase cab volume. The factory foam is all that cab needs.

nah my idea is to remove the tick foam and replace it with damping pad and thinner foam thereby increasing the volume..... and put absorbent spray on the baffle.

It won't increase the volume, and the spray on the baffle will have no effect.
