Creating diy sound bar by placing three volt8s in the same enclosure (isolated in the
I have an idea that I've been cooking up in my head and wanted to know if i'm overlooking anything. I currently have a definitive technologies ssa42 sound bar in my upstairs living room area that I find OK, but feel I can improve with a diy offering. Initially I was looking at just throwing some "full range" faital pro drivers in an enclosure, and going that route (still might just for a fun project) but thought why not go with a more proven kit and just do the same with them. My plan is to create a 5 foot wide enclosure, that is about 9 inches high, and 7 inches deep or so. I have a sheet 1/2 inch Baltic birch I have earmarked for it, and think I might embark on my first veneering adventure or paint it the color of the wall (serious WAF in this room) depending on what I and my wife agree upon. If I orient the coaxials as far away from each other as possible, I should be good right? I should be able to separate them from each other by about 15 inches or so.
Anyone see any issues with me doing this? Obviously I'd like to do discrete speakers, but I'm limited for that in this room. I have an anarchy th for the low end FYI.
