So I am ready to build some DIY rear speakers. I know this thread directed on some new upcoming projects but been kida stagnant for a few. So I figured I would ask here rather that the Sound Group Forum. My front speakers are 100db QSC 2150 with my sides being 97db Q!SC 8101 which leaves me deciding which to use for my rears. My last from of seat will be on a riser approx. 4 feet from my rear wall. I was thinking of building the Volt 10 with the slanted box. @ at price of $338.00 for drivers and box. OR I could build the Fusion 6 for $240.00 that's a difference of $98.00. Im just curious what I am giving up my building the Fusion 6 for rears? I thought perhaps the horn driver in the fusion would help with the seating distance for rear speakers. However the Volts would match closer as they are 95db.
I will defer to your expert opinions to those who have already built these speakers as to your opinionated recommendations. I am not looking to save $100.00 at the loss of sound quality and then end up replacing them with the Volts anyway. I'll still be keeping an eye of this page for Atmos speakers IF I decide to go that route In the future. Once these are placed into my theater, Ill be adding Wide speakers next. I'll wait of the height speakers until I decide on Atmos unless I build Volt 10 in the flat box and use them in my ceiling. Still waiting to see what the scientists come up with at S.G.
