Can't believe I missed this forum, I was referred here by a friend over at AVS.
I'm in the middle of writing an eBook on Pre-Wiring a home (long story, but I'm a CI turned equipment mfr and a friend convinced me to do this mostly to help keep Newbie questions down at my company)...
I just completed a basic "whole-home-audio" chapter but the section on building a proper box
for in-wall/ceiling speakers is really lacking. I was hoping to find someone to volunteer to write a couple pages on correct sizing and construction. My problem is, I always just purchased a slip-in box from the speaker manufacturer when I was professionally installing but that scenario does not fit the concept of a DIY home pre-wire.
This seems like the group that might have a benevolent soul willing to take on the task. This is a freely available publication so unfortunately I can offer no compensation other than the goodwill of a host of grateful folks.
The current version can be found HERE
, but I publish a new chapter about once a week so I've got a sign up list going for those wanting the updates as well.
(Obviously critical reviews and additions are welcome to any chapter - I posted that offer on Cocoontech and am still digging out from all the helpful messages)
