    How are headphone drivers typically attached to the baffle?

    I’m experimenting with building over-ear headphones (3D printed) and wondering what’s the typical way to attach the driver to the baffle. Let’s say it’s a 50mm driver. I could print a 50mm ring and wedge the driver in. Then put some hot glue around the edge. Or I could print a 54mm ring...
