New IB Sub
I'm currently framing my smallish theater room. It's 12 x 16.5 x 9, but because it's a basement, has some obstacles that will result in a stepped coffered ceiling from 9 foot down to 8 foot. I'm doing 4 Atmos speakers in the ceiling in addition to the 7.1 bed.
Now, for the sub, I'd like to do an IB to the utility room next door. As I've only got about 1700 cubic feet, I'm thinking I can get away with a pair of 15 inch IB drivers from PE.
So, what I'm thinking is doing a line array, but having it as a separate structure instead of tying it to the wall, then using a foam or rubber gasket between the baffle and the wall to maintain separation between the two spaces.
In other words, it'll be secured to the concrete floor, and not the wood-framed wall. This way, I won't have to worry about flexing of the wall, or the structure of the house.
I'm going to post this over at The Cult as well to see if anyone over there had any thoughts about this, but thought I'd try here first as there's more traffic here.
