I'm considering buying and placing a KEF q200 center speaker (not ported, uses passive radiator) into the center speaker opening in the BDI signal A/V credenza. Whatever portions of the opening then not filled in by the speaker would be filled in by insulation packed around the sides and covered with speaker grill cloth.

If I placed the speaker inside the opening for aesthetic purposes, I'm aware that it would create a boundary effect that would distort the midrange.

My question then would be, can Audyssey overcome this problem? Could Audyssey then give a similar result to having the center speaker resting on top of the credenza?

Anyone ever tried to measure this?

Thanks
Dan

•Interior Center Channel Speaker Area 8H" x 26W" x 17.5D"

and the speaker itself

Product Dimensions: 20.7 x 10.2 x 7.1 inches ; 28 pounds

just pull it as far forward in the shelf as possible, to keep the front of the speaker from being 'tucked in' to the space.
and aim the tweeter at your seated ear level, so upward from that position. I don't think you'll really have much problem, acoustically . Or visually, that's a nice stand, and a nice speaker...
what's the point of the speaker cloth and stuffing, exactly?

What a long, strange trip its been....

Curious about that too.

Which KEF speakers do you have LR front?
