Possible to Install SI HT 18" in Erich's 4 cuft Flatpack for Dayton-18"?

I was wondering how difficult it is to install a SI HT 18" driver in one Erich's 4 cuft flat pack with cut out for a Dayton-18" driver.

Has anyone tried it? If so, with what level of success? What specifically needs to be modified?

His website says

Woofer cut out for Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18": 18 3/16"
Woofer cut out for Stereo Integrity 18": 18 1/2"

So I'm guessing he sells one for each sub? If you already have the flatpack for the dayton, you'll have a lot of sanding in your future. I'd just ask him how much for a new baffle cut for the SI. Another option would be to remove the rubber surround and use a gasket.

He used to sell for the SI.

Currently, I am exploring the rabbet bit router route to make the cut out fit. If this falls through, I will probably go with a gasket.

A rabbet bit with the right size bearing can control the depth of the cut. I've also used a chamfer bit to widen the top of a driver cutout that was slightly small. A roundover bit at partial cutting depth might work as well.

Thanks for the tips.
