The short answer is No.I am trying to figure out if closing off the open side of my home theatre area with floor to ceiling heavy duty fabric black out type curtains will work like a sealed room for subwoofer performance. I don't expect it to be as efficient as an actual sealed room, but was wondering if a heavy fabric or even sliding wood panels would help. I still haven't decided on my dual subs because of the size of the whole room plus the adjoining kitchen and family room that I'm sure would have to be figured into my cubic foot volume for whatever subs I would need. But If I used heavy fabric or even sliding wood partitions to seal the area off when I was watching movies, temporarily making it into an 11-1/2' x 12' room, would it in reality actually cut down on my cubic foot area thus allowing me to get smaller dual subs? Anyone have any ideas on whether this would work or are these just the ramblings of a madman lol. Appreciate any comments, thx.
While it would help, your speakers to sound better due to reflections from closing the open-end, Since speakers only care about there physical locations, to your MLP and this is still a positive to do so. Sub/s wise, it will not change a thing. And the sub/s will still try to fill all open area. While it is not the answer you wanted to hear, I would still do-it just to improve your speakers sound signature
