First, I apologize if this topic has been discussed at length - the search function seems like it is disabled for me.
I had been mulling around with the idea of building a diy servo sub for a while when I came across the OB kit from Rythmik/GR. It seems like it solves some of the hesitations I had about exploring an OB design.
My primary hang up now is wall distance. These subs (I’ll be building two, dual mono) will be in a non dedicated room (ie family room), and can only be placed ~1 ft from a wall. The consensus I hear about OB designs is that this is a no-no, but I wanted to ask the servo OB community specifically what their thoughts were regarding placement of an H or W frame servo OB (likely 2x 12” per sub).
Would some degree of eq, toe-in, or this particular sub’s design strengths itself help ameliorate the OB’s difficulties with near wall location.
If it’s at all relevant, my primary goals for these subs are for top-notch music reproduction. They will be joining a pair of mid-fi towers with ribbon tweeters, but if possible I’d like them to help augment any bulls my 18” dedicated HT sub can’t fill, but that is heavily a secondary concern.
