Hi all. I've been working on an IB subwoofer project design, and I came across the LLT threads. This is a box being built inside of an entertainment center.
I always was worried a bit about sending the backwave of sound throuought the adjacent space (basement in my case). (WAF) So now I'm thinking about how I could design in the capability to easily add a port, or ports, and enclose the box from the backflow room, thus transforming to an LLT. Another concern is that I am limited to having only 2 15" drivers. Maybe not quite enough for an IB.
Room is big: 8000 cu ft (open floorplan)
Viewing/listening position is 9'
not interested in insane loudness
Budget is in the $1K to $2K range.
I have a couple of preliminary questions.
First, can an LLT's port, or ports, go into another room of the house, or does it have to vent into the main listening room? The 'other room' would be the basement and the very same room the IB will backwave into.
Second, can Google sketchup diagrams be used in this forum?
