Just a note: When playing around with added baffle a general rule of thumb is to not have the baffle rise above the line of sight when you look straight on from the tip thru the bore. If the baffle is too high it cuts clarity, increases resistance and potentially gathers moisture. Too high and you start to kill sound. Ive never seen a design that works well when the baffle is above that line. If you approach it and it still is not peeling enough paint then lengthen it.
