How to use Volt 8’s in-wall, sound-proofed basement
In my basement build, I am strongly leaning towards ported Volt’s for the side and rear surrounds. Me being me, I want to put them in-wall, unless this is a bad idea for reasons I do not yet understand.
1) For optimal bass (will be crossed over at 80), I need to make a cabinet that has the same cubic footage as the typical enclosure
2) Flush mounting the baffle with the wall might be bad, for acoustical reasons I do not yet fully comprehend
3) The speaker PROBABLY needs a backer box to prevent sound traveling up the walls into the house. I wonder if I can get away with just GG’ing drywall to whatever enclosure I make. I will need to have the backer box AND speaker connected solely to resilient channel OR some kind of clips.
Am I missing anything here? Overdoing it? Thoughts in general?
