I am in the process of mounting my subs to the baffle and noticed the foam surround covers more than half of the mounting holes in the frame on one side. Should I slit the surround where it covers to make it easier to put the bolts through, or just push the bolts through?

Thanks,

Its not the surround, its the gasket. I would push the bolts through if possible.

This is definitely part of the surround...the woofers have no gasket.

Pushing the bolt through may separate more of the surround from the glue.

I'd make a small slit with a knife, staying within the confines of the hole.
