Building a new house and will be putting in-ceiling speakers in several rooms. These will be for normal listening volumes, nothing real loud. The insulation will be the blown-in type about 15" thick. I need to make an enclosure to prevent the insulation from getting on the speaker. Was considering using 1/2" drywall to make the enclosures. Is this a good material or is there an easier way and/or better material?


Thanks

No no no, don't use drywall. Use 3/4" MDF. You should probably double up on the front baffle to make it 1 1/2". You also need to consider the volume of the enclosure. This depends on the type of speakers, but you probably don't need more than .5 or .75 cubic feet.


Also, does anybody have experience with celing enclosures from PE?

This will do the job while keep costs cheap.


* 1/2" - 3/4" cheap plywood


or


* 3/4" particle board


There are more choices but may cost more.
