So, I'm a total non-woodworker and started my DIY journey with a set of Volt-6 LX's. They turned out great (thread to come).
I turned my attention to my LCR and, for my situation, I really wanted full towers and a center. WAF dictated 8" max drivers and I settled on the Fusion 8 Alchemy Towers and F8 Center but, the tower needed some modification for my needs.
My Franken-Fusion 8 towers are basically the F8 Tower baffle (pic from the website attached) with:
- roundovers chopped off
- port moved up
- square-edged top and sides added, and
- bottom section added
...essentially making a shorter, deeper F8 section inside a 40" tower with an integrated stand (see pic).
The last section of the tower is sealed from top section so the cabinet volume of the top section is the same as the full tower spec.
For now, I need some advice... and I'll tell the whole build story below.
Q - how best should I fill in the "stand" portion at the bottom? I know sand would be good, but I think it'll be too heavy. Would foam mattress topper + polyfill be enough?
TIA... more to come!
