Question How to design wall mounted speakers?

Hey,

I was thinking of re-using my TB w5-2106 to wall mounted speakers. They are now in open baffle but after moving I ran out of space for OBs.

I think I am aiming for something small and use a sub to compliment. Is there something to take in to consideration on wall mounted? Different baffle step compensation?

Also I haven't tried designing any speakers in a long time so I could take some suggestions on what program to use. Unless someone already has a good idea on what size would work with those TBs.

BR,
Ossi

The biggest problem with most commercial in walls is they use the wall cavity as an enclosure but there is no consistentcy in that size etc. Put your speakers in a box before you put it in the wall.

Unless the wall behind is open than you can do open baffles.

Or something like Jordan shows here, just use a single driver and a smaller enclosure.

The best on-walls I've done were shallow and the baffle tapered back to the wall on each side [bonus points if you do the top and bottom also ]. My few didn't and were all vented with slits between the baffle and back plate.

Very different BSC. Often none needed at all. I have never made them, but I respect the views of those who rate the Cornu horn. This is a wall mounted design which is pleasingly different. You will find a lot about it on this site.

Here is something I did a while ago:

Full range on wall for home theater?

The wall eliminates need for BSC so you will get the best bass sensitivity compared to other types of mounting.

Another one is this:
Foam Core Board Speaker Enclosures?

And here:
Full range on wall for home theater?

And finally, the Cornu back loaded horn:
Ever think of building a Cornu Spiral horn? Now you can!

Thanks for great links.

I think I'll start with simple sealed design. What software would you suggest to use ?

I am thinking of making it wall art with some printed cloth on it. I think something shalllow that would match acoustic panel sizes. I could then hide them quite nicely.
