When it comes to knowledge and experience on hi-fi, this forum still has a lot going for it.

Any new members will get relatively good advice on here.

Re: Infinite baffle idea

People have done this with cinema systems. 24" drivers with the rears facing into an attic or under-floor space. It works well. And all you need to undo it is a few floorboard sections. You can even have the drivers forward facing with a box around them that vents the rear sound though a large hole ...

Re: Ported or sealed box speakers. Which do you prefer?
