Hey all,


In order to improve my bass response, I'm considering adding a wall in my living room:




This is not a dedicated theater room and I'm not looking to sound proof it or anything, just to improve bass response by more than halving the cubic footage of the space I need to pressurize - going from ~4900 cu. ft. to 2400 cu. ft..


I'd like to keep the doorway as large as possible (for WAF), so I'm thinking double, solid-core doors in the center of the new wall. Will these doors need to be sealed somehow, or will just closing the doors be enough to keep the bass "trapped" inside the smaller space? Popalock's doors are obviously not "sealed" and seem to work for him.




Anyone have a ballpark idea of what this project would cost?


Thanks for any other tips/advice you can offer!

Nobody has any experience doing this? I'd of figured someone here would have wanted to reduce their cubic volume to improve bass......maybe I'll be the guinea pig.

Most add a second Sub - gear is more fun and keeps marriages intact. What are you using now as a sub?

Yeah, should have mentioned that in my first post.



Currently running 4 PSA XS15s but still running into headroom issues in the under 30hz range. I know these subs together will do it, just not in my current space.



My choices are 1) build a wall, 2) get more subs....I'm thinking #1 will be cheaper in the long run.

Thanks, but no....what I'm looking for is someone who's successfully built a separator wall, and what they did wrong or right with it.


I've pretty much made up my mind that the wall is the way to go, but thanks for the suggestions anyways!
