I just purchased a pair of TC80i in ceiling speakers at HiFi Buys for $230 for the pair! (They are going out of business). I am in a rental house awaiting construction of a new one. I would like to enjoy these speakers now, but can't cut holes in the ceiling. Do you have any suggestions on a DIY enclosure for these? I know Polk sells a pre-construction type enclosure, but I am looking to build a standard rectangular type speaker cabinet.
My specific questions are:
How many cubic feet?
Ported / Non-Ported? (I assume ported)
Length and diameter of port? (Crutchfield sells some standard (car audio)ones I have used with decent results in the past.)
How much poly fill? Do you jam as much as will fit or just enough loft to insulate the enclosure?
Thanks for your help,
