I just did some more measuring to check. I have a 110" screen and have considered going with a 100".....maybe. It's a cheap DIY out of designer white laminate, so it's changable. With a slightly smaller screen and moving a bit higher would allow me to put the center channel up above the sub boxes and still stay away from the screen, allowing for any width if it's ever needed. That's figuring the sub if I keep the boxes around 15" in width.
Okay, I gotta admit, I'm tired of measuring!
I've been staring at my room and fooling with SketchUp for over a week. I gotta get this thing started!
This is the best I can do here: I just don't think I can scrape up much more cu/ft than the following.
4 identical sealed boxes:
15"x19"x48" gets me right around 6.36 cu ft. After the extra baffle, braces and driver displacement, it should be really close to the 2 cu ft per driver you guys recommended. Figuring driver dispacement in the range of .03 cuft.OR
4 identical ported boxes.
Largest I can go to have everything fit (and still look reasonable):
15"x22"x48" which would give me about 7.45 cu ft prior to subtracting ports or anything else.
Modeled in Unibox, that ported box isn't half bad tuned to around 15 - 17.The BIG question,
which of those 2 makes the most sense? I'll have to get an EQ for the sealed or an filter for the ported, so that part doesn't matter.
I'm down to the final day before I go nuts!
Any strong ideas on which of those 2 boxes I should go with could possibly save me a trip to the looney bin later this week.I have a need for a cloud of flying MDF dust!!!!
