diy sub question - Infinite Baffle - 4 fi-car 18's in a single opposed manifold
i am building an infinite baffle sub with 4 18's in a single opposed box. i am trying to finalize the placement of the box.
due to my room layout the only option I have is he left wall of the room. this would be under the staircase and there is plenty of room back there for the sub.
My placement options are
studs right to the left of the front left tower speaker cabinet. i think this would not be a good idea to have the sound outout right by the speaker cabinet
studs would place the output of the sub on the left and right in the front of the speaker. see picture. will this cause any interference of the sound output with the sub and the speaker?
studs further away from the left front speaker however this leaves me where the top driver in the manifold will have its rear end very close to the bottom side of the stairs. i can use insulation here to dampen the sound reflection.
Any thoughts. i have the drivers and wood for the cabinet purchased and need to start cutting as soon as my decision is made.
