So I’m thinking of redoing my dual opposed boxes and making them vertical (drivers on top and bottom) so that I can also use them as stands for my Seaton Catalyst 8C’s which call for a 26″ stand.
I’m thinking of a rectangular box that will have top and bottom “shelves” on top of the subwoofers, either glass or wood, similar to say Bosso Bass’s Single module Raven or Raptor design (http://www.bossobass.com/Bossobass.com/Technical%202.html), though not a cylinder and won’t look nearly as nice! Does anyone know if there is an ideal amount of space that I need to leave between the top of the baffle and the shelf itself? Would 1.5″ be enough for the top and bottom?
I’m going to try and leave ~19″ of vertical space for the two drivers to fit in which should be similar to what they have now. Width and depth will likely be ~20″ less the 3/4″ ply interior.
Is there an optimal interior box volume I should be shooting for with this setup? I was thinking 3.5-4 cubic feet?
