Hey, got a little problem. I have been modeling a couple speakers as best as I can, but I have worked myself into a stupor. I have an odd sized room, and placement of the woofer is more or less dictating what I can do. Here is what I mean:
Behind the chair is where I currently have my sub. It's a sony htib sub that I have had for 10 years. The reason I put it there is because I dont have much room up front.
The room is 18x18 with highest wall 16 ft.
Pardon the mess, in process of painting. Anyways, I hear its preferred to have the sub up front firing towards you. But I don't know if its the room size, or just this crappy sub but I found it sounds best in that corner i showed. So I have ran wire in wall to that location. Guess I would prefer the sub to be there, but it cant be too big. Is it a good idea to have it right against the wall? If so, in that corner, I could get away with about 20w x 20d x 22h. If it is best for it to be out from the wall 6 inches or so, that cuts my size by that much.
I put an order in for the dayton rss390HO saturday, but cancelled the order last night becuase now i'm thinking maybe a smaller sealed box with a dayton 12HF/HO? and a 15" dayton passive rad. This is my first build, and I guess going PR
is a bit more complicated, but I'm sure I can figure it out with a little help.
I will be powering with the parts express bash 500, that I already aquired. Question about that amp, anyone know the stock hpf? Thats another reason I had trouble modeling, I didn't know what tune to choose. I want the lowest possible for HT of course.
Another thing that may be an option, is an endtable build, putting it next to sofa where current table is. That would let me get away with a much larger box, but I'm unsure about the effect this creates. I will use this for 99% movies/tv, and don't want it to be totally obvious. If I crossover around 60hz, maybe this will become less of an issue? It's just that that seat next to the table is my preferred seat.
Thanks for any help guys, I really could use it!
