Depends on use of the baffles but indeed with no baffles the left side gets most flow, using one of the more restrictive packed baffles would shift that to the other tip.

Brian i see in your latest RF photo your still running with the windblocker installed, did you ever get a chance to check wind turbulence sound levels without it?

I like the idea, will check that when the wife let's me have more than a few minutes in the car.

Thanks! That's pretty much what I figured, just wanted to be sure.

Well, finally did some driving with the blocker removed....and I too prefer it gone. Have not checked with DB meter but I am leaving out the wind blocker for now. Did date night in the car in open top mode Saturday night and much enjoyed the drive to and from our Dinner destination, etc.

Hopefully enough RF owners will agree that no windblocker is the way to go, and someone will come up with nice set of hole plugs for the blocker attachment points.
