Hi all from a long time lurker
I am installing Energy RC-6C (6" driver, 8-1/8" cutout) speakers for my side and rear surround channels. The speakers will be ceiling mounted. The ceiling is 2x10" joists with Whisper Clips, drywall furring channel, and 1 sheet of 5/8" drywall.
Question: Does anyone have a link or any advice for how to construct a suitable back box for in ceiling speakers with the above ceiling construction? Mainly I am just looking for an example or two before I start construction in order to avoid any costly mistakes (short on time right now
I plan on building with 3/4" particle board and then mounting each speaker box to the joists with 2 RSIC-DC04 clips for isolation. This is also how my can light back boxes are constructed/installed.
My two biggest goals are isolation from upstairs sound/footfalls and also to avoid turning the suspended drywall into a giant resonating panel from surround channel content.
ps I called Energy and was advised to build 1.0 cu. ft. boxes.
Thanks for the help!
