Default Any ideas for this?


I am doing something... no matter how stupid it sounds.

So I am going to meld an entertainment center together with my speakers. My plan is to use 10" or 12" sonotubes to house WB Betsys and support a wooden shelf where my tv will sit. The plan is to mount the Betsys upside down underneath the wood shelf (where TV will be).

My question is as follows. How should I port the bottom? Do I make multiple holes? Do I just have one port out the front? What size & shape port?

One worry I have is taking too much structural support out of the sonotube. I might grab some rigid wood poles from the hobby store and glue vertical ribs inside the tube for support. I'm also considering wrapping the tube, kind of like Kvart and Bolge wrap their speakers and reduce nasty resonances.

Any thoughts? Thanks

The speakers, left and right, should be directioned toward the listener ( ...parallel )
Each one should be having an enclosure on its own, independent
Every other solution is...exotic.
