    Yup......the reason the mfgr says they need .8cf of air space is because speakers make sound by moving the air.....not enough air space=not enough air to move to create the designed sound.

    inserting the acoustic insulation will give the effevt of a slightly larger enclosure than it is. selectproducts.com will have what you need.
