The soffit was wider than the duct so there was room for a 3 inch recessed can light.

Thanks. You don't happen to recall how wide. I'm struggling with dimensions, want to ensure the soffits are proportional to the room.

What board/material did you put inside the box itself? I am building boxes to place my speakers in and am trying to figure out what I should surround the speakers with, should I do something like this or just line some insulation between the speaker and the MDF?

Looks like 1/4" Hardi-backer. It's used as a substrate for tile in wet locations. Using this to line the boxes with GG between it and the MDF adds mass and damping that you don't get with just insulation.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

Thanks again mucho.
