Yeah I like.the rear ported. Good idea. The cutouts I drew were not to scale . I am going to post a side view so you can see top curve better.

the assymetrical look of the front ported is a crime against nature. :-)

Listen. It's All Good.

If I move ports to back I would have to do this

Assuming that is fine .

couple random concepts.


that black line is simply to highlight the profile. i bet that you would get some takes for kits on the rear ported version.
What's the trade off with rear ports? Placement farther away from wall is probably one. Anything else?

Nothing wrong with rear ported. You could stack them on the back, if that makes sense. I don't know how to draw those things you guys do.

You could also do a round port, but you'd have to buy ports. I have some if you want Donny.

I will put them on the rear . Stock ports are fine. Not sure if I will stack them vertical or horizontal .

Thanks tux. I'm going to keep the idea open for my build.

This leaves the problem of blocking the existing ports but I would imagine it wouldn't be that hard to use the existing baffle as a template for making some port plugs. Some wood glue and you have your new modified nonported baffled.

Yup,
Will trace out port plugs.

I have been reading these 1099 build threads with interest trying my hand at building some. I have a question about what do you build are use for surrounds with this speaker.

I been contemplating this same thing. I have the Ascends 170's now but am finding that they are not performing to my expectations. Now thinking that maybe the Volt 8 or 10 would be a better fit with the 1099's. Problem I see is the mounting of the Volt's, with either a 12x12 or 14x14 size to work with, that will take a pretty hefty mount on the wall in order to angle or swivel the box to listening position.

These will hold them if they will work in your room. I am using 2 to hold some surrounds heavier than the volts.

I'm going for the Volt 10's with the angled box, so will be keen to see how you mount yours

Thanks, I may look into those. Can you tell me how far off the wall they hold the speaker at?

Roughly 5".


However mine are hanging from the ceiling. I never had them on the wall so am not positive those ball and socket pivots would hold a heavy speaker at 90 degrees. They might I just don't use them like that.
I have seen other people link this mount so maybe some of them will see this and comment if they have them on the wall and angled.


Sorry I can't be of more help for the wall.

I was looking at the volt 8 for rear surrounds. I thought cutting a extra back and mounting it to the wall then drilling through the speaker into the wood plate mounted on the wall and screwing it in. It wood just end up with a thick back.

I guess some volt 10 for the sides would work but I was wandering if their was a smaller speaker like the 1099 that has a horn type of set up that would match the sound of the 1099 better. Now the rear surround the 8 or the 10 would work but jbl has a speaker the 8340 I think that has a horn set up that would maybe work also. But A DIY version would be better that was designed to match the 1099 would be better because they would look like the same speaker from the same group.

Unless your listening to 5 channel music matching 1099's not a big concern. There isn't a matching surround. For movies the volts seem to be a very good choice due to the fact there isn't a waveguide. Surround speakers are supposedly better when they don't have pin point location. Want that diffuse sound.

Volt 10 for side surrounds and Angled volt 8 for rear surrounds. In fact I think I will get the volt 8 first.

So do you think you'll be able to get that across the border without having to pay any taxes on it?

Well my car is in the shop so I can't cut out my two Martycube's I was going to do today. The left me able to start with the 1099 since I had just a little mdf left.
Cut the bottom, back and 4 sides to measurement. Nothing magical there. Then did layout for side profile.

The circles on the vertical lines are measurements from sketchup drawing. I measure a distance across and down on the curve. Then get several points I can free hand draw the curve. Next I cut curve with jigsaw in one cut

Next I put second piece on top of my template for router flush.

Flush trim all pieces to same template.

Then assemble bottom to back, and sides to back/bottom.

My son is holding in center supports. I can't put them in until I get my 1099 baffle (Tuesday)

All total about 90 minutes. Next I have to buy 1/8" mdf and rough cut a little big. Once I have baffle then glue in supports and glue down the top. Then line with foam and attach baffle. Finally do veneer.

Thanks,
Only using skillsaw, laminate router, and jigsaw. All you need for this. I used brad nails but it's a luxury. I hope people see its not difficult. Toughest thing so far is single cut for pattern. The 10 000 cuts I've made with bandsaw/jigsaw make it easier for me. For a rookie you may need to do some practice cuts to get the feel of the curve.. I would love to see more people try curved builds if they like the look.

The work you've done so far does seem completely accessible. I plan on doing a straight box on mine because I like that look, but I really enjoy watching curved builds. I especially like learning the techniques involved to accomplish this. Before watching dts's build, and now yours, the curve seemed like such an advanced class topic. Now I actually feel like I could do it!

Donny, you make this stuff look so easy. I know it isn't easy, but seeing someone do it and give tips almost makes me think I should give it a whirl. First I want to get veneering figured out.

Have you figured out where the ports are going, on the back?

Spoiler!
