    Hi,

    I am in the process of building a home theatre system and am quite new to the experience. I was considering placing my speakers in the wall so the front of the speaker sits flush with the remainder hanging out the back. I was going to build timber frames to support the speakers and cover them with gyprock.

    My left and right front speakers are 4 foot high by 1 foot wide.

    Can anyone tell me if this will work and if there will be any major detriment to the sound

    If your speakers were not made to be installed in a wall then yes, there will be a degradation of the sound if they are installed in the wall.

    As long as the speakers are front ported, I don't see a problem with inserting them in the wall. If they are rear or side ported you have a problem.

    There's more to it than what side the port is on. [​IMG]
    The crossover must be designed to compensate for the boundary effect. Putting a speaker that was not designed to be at a boundary on a boundary location will cause sound problems. No ifs, ands, or buts. Sorry.
