Im getting an itch to build a second VBSS. I need to redesign this one a bit to fit behind my sofa. I would love some input. Here is what I had in mind:
21" High, 10" Deep, 72.25" Wide
I know that makes an awkward box... Interior dimensions remain nearly identical. I'd like to still use the pre-made flared ports from Parts Express. Would it be okay to port these on the side of the enclosure with the sub mounted in the middle on the long wide front ?
Would it be better to place the speaker on the far left front of the box and port it out the right side or is middle okay for the location of the actual speaker ?
Also... My sofa is tucked inside a dormer window. I would have around 18" of clearance to the right of the ports that are mounted on the right side of the box. I imagine that is more than enough clearance. I might get some odd resonances tucked in the window but I'm out of space in this room.
Last question... I'm sure it done frequently... Is it okay to place the speaker very close against the couch ? Thats the whole purpose of tucking it back there.
I've attached a pic of my current VBSS that doubles as an Arcade Stand. I currently have an iNuke1000 and I'd like to drive one more sub with it that I can place behind a couch.
A VBSS with slim, wide dimensions is my preference. Max depth is around 10 inches (11 at the bottom, 9 at the top). Max height is around 21". Thats how I came to the dimensions I listed above.
I value your input. Thank you!
