I've been into car audio off and on for a while (mid 90's) and I'm finally ready for good tunes in the house. I'm a DIY'er in general and want to build my first set of speakers. I choose the Idunn, because I wanted to start out with a kit to make things easier on myself and it just exceeded my inital budget, it was close enough for me to get the green light. I will be building my own cabinets for these.
I planned to buy the "optional excessories package" as well.
The W.A.F. is huge for this build, so I'm limited to a small area for the speakers to go. My available space for each speaker is to the right and left of the TV. I end up with 10" wide x 45" high x 19" deep. I tried to include a picture of the TV area......how do I attach a photo?
- I will be placing the speakers close to the wall, will I need to move to a sealed design or does the port in front remove that issue?
- The speakers will sit on top of the TV stand that is 19" high, what is a good listening height? The primary listening position will be on the couch. I was thinking about adding "false height" to the box to bring the speakers up without stands.
- Could I increase any of the box dimensions to bring out more bass? Would this require changes in the X-over? I have no X-over experience. I will add a sub eventually........extended bass is not necessary.
I'm ready to order my kit in the next week or two. I looked at building the ER18DXT by Mark K., but wanted to stick to a kit the first time out. Thanks in advance!
