Could use some input on my soffit.
If you look at my floorplan it is to be for lighting (9 or 11 small cans), conduit (all outlets in columns, so soffit runs the wires), and presumably treatment (bass trapping?).
Here is the existing setup with a sewage pipe and a bit of flex that feeds the first floor encroaching in the space. I think I need to soffit them, and drywall them for sound isolation purposes.
I started a quick and dirty sketchup:
Here is a sketch of what I think I should do - soffits in 2 phases. Phase 1 in green, enclose pipe (w/access) and flex duct in the double drywall + GG shell. (in green)
Phase 2 would then be the conduit/treatment/lighting/etc space (in purple)
My questions are -
- Does this approach make sense?
- Will the "phase 1" soffit areas change my accoustic treatment plans?
- Does it make sense to plan to use the soffit for treatment given this irregularity?
- Or maybe exclude the side soffits should be excluded from treatment?
May be notable that the screen is AT (SMX), and there will be some space behind the screenwall for treatment also.
I posted in bocapimp's thread to figure out how Ruben/Boca handled getting treatment and lighting into the soffit space, but would welcome input on that as well.
Finally, general dimensions - I was thinking an 18" out, 12" down. Seem reasonable?
Thanks for any input.
