I am in the process of building a new house and am at the wiring point. I have very limited experience with in-ceiling speakers. More often than not they sound flat and lack bass. For stereo set-ups in two rooms I am considering adding passive in wall subwoofers and found great deals on:
Sonance 8 inch in wall single subwoofers. I don't want to add an additional sub woofer amp for stereo-set-ups and these rooms.
Here are my questions..
With a 6 1/2 inch woofer in the ceiling speaker will adding the sub give me much better bass response?
Do I have to buy a back enclosure or could I just add two extra 2x4s to create an enclosure in the wall?
Is it worth the extra cost? I know this last question is a very subjective.
Here are the specs on the sub:
8" (203mm) long throw carbon fiber cone, dual voice coil, with a rubber surround
35Hz - 250Hz
Optional wooden acoustic enclosures optimize bass performance and reduces sound spillover to adjacent rooms.
