The cabinets that I built are properly sealed and do not rattle at all. I have had instances where the boxes would physically shift because they do not have feet. In some cases, if they shift and touch the wall, I would hear rattling from the cabinet(s) bouncing off of the wall.
To answer your other question... I kind of inherited my space vs. having a blank canvas to mold into what I wanted.
With that said, I can’t say I would do things differently in this current space, but when we move to our next home, I will definitely do a few things differently.
In my current space, it’s apparent that I took the “more is more” approach and literally threw as much displacement as one wife could possibly stand for within such a small space. In my next space, I plan to focus primarily on the acoustical design aspect to ensure I am maximizing use of my available equipment. Take, for instance, @FoLLgoTT
’s theater build
. Here is a quick pic:
His design is based on the Single Bass Array (SBA) concept. I'd like to take his approach in my next space. Either the SBA or theDouble Bass Array
concept. There is a very interesting thread on the the DBA concept here
. It’s a pretty technical read, but the basic concept is easy to grasp and should not be very hard to implement if starting a theater space from scratch. I still have a lot to learn on the subject myself, so I may not be the best person to answer very technical questions about proper implementation, but from what all I have read, the acoustical benefits of taking such an approach are tremendous!Edited by popalock - 4/1/14 at 10:35am
