Hi,


I am building a HT room in the basement and I bought 3 Polk Audio LC265i in-wall speakers for my fronts. I also purchased the Polk Performance Enclosures for these speakers.


My question is, how should I construct the wall that these speakers are going to be mounted in? There is already a 2x4 wood framed frost wall there (couple inch space behind it and then the concrete foundation wall). I am not going for 100% sound isolation (although that would be nice) but I would like to reduce the amount of noise that will leak from this room if possible.


I am assuming if I do some sort of resilient channel, with double drywall (preferrably with Green Glue between the layers) that would be a good way to go? Are there any issues with doing this in a wall with in-wall speakers? Is there a better way to go? I'd rather not do a double wall due to room size restrictions. And I don't havea a big budget for this project.



Thanks,


Brad

Unfortunately, in-wall speakers and sound isolation do not play together well. You should either try to isolate sound or not. A partial effort is a waste of money. Best would be to fasten the back enclosures directly to the speakers and mount these on the wall, not in it.
