i have a JBL sub i am trying to find a home for in my new theater. i was thinking of placing it behind the wall and using a return duct grill to cover the hole in the wall. my concern is the port on the back of the sub will be buried and affect the sound, not to mention fill the closet with sound and travel through the exposed duct work in there. any advice?
I read on Polk Audios web site they recommend grates to cover their in wall subs. I also had some concerns about how that would muddy the bass response. All my speakers are in wall, so i am really looking to hide the sub, but i do not want to kill the bass response.
Are there any in wall subs which are cheap and good? Anyone have experience with them?
You could just build a hole in the wall that will give it plenty of airspace and not cover it up. Not exactly what you want but do you want bass still or do you want to spend a lot of money and do it right?
