First timer, wall mount speaker build
I have spent the last few days reading as much as I can about DIY projects, but alas the web is vast and sometimes I get lost so I am looking for some direction and help.
Backstory: Just finished building a new computer, it's got all the bells and whistles except the built in speakers on the 27" monitor naturally suck. To tide me over I picked up a pair of decent headphones, but I need some speakers and soon.
I start out looking for some basic active $50 computer speakers, move to $100 Panasonic bookshelfs, move to $250 diy kits, and before I know it am looking at $900 4-way floor speakers.
Where I'm at now:
I found this kit for the F612PV and was close to buying it before I noticed the location was half way around the world: Flat Panel Speakers
I could always email the company and see if I couldn't get specs from them to try sourcing the parts myself over here but thought I'd see if you guys had any suggestions first.
In the end I am a noob and you guys have the knowledge so feel free to convince me of things like I should really find a way to put the speakers on a stand out away from the wall or suspend them from wires off the ceiling or something crazy.
Wall mounting has potential, especially in circumstances like this. I wall mount in my garage, but there is a drawback in that wall mounting can produce midrange peaks and nulls. They can be addressed in a number of ways, such as tapering the sides of the cabinet back towards the wall, or using absorbing material.
Well I emailed that Ascension Audio company in Australia about buying one of their kits which is designed specifically to be put on a wall and they said they could ship me the kit with everything but the woofer (which I could source from madisound) at a reduced cost with a quite reasonable shipping rate. That speaker is only 6" deep which fits the bill.
I looked quite a bit for wide baffle speakers and couldn't really find anything that was bookshelf sized and diy. I would love to try modifying the box shape of an existing design, but I have no tools to measure and adjust things or really the understanding, Maybe some day
I will take a look at what you said though Allen and possibly pick up some defelx panels to add to the side wall to stop reflection.
Hi, Deflex is overpriced garbage that doesn't work, rgds, sreten.
