Are you able to help me out with the BSD’s?

I think you mean BSC. But, yes, I'll help you figure it since good starting points. Let me know how you plan to wire the speakers and the basic baffle dimensions and I can see What I can do to help.

Thank you!

 

This is going to be a sealed enclosure with 0.2 ft.³ for the PS95’s and 0.12ft.³ for the tech’s.

We actually need the external dimensions to figure out BSC.

Center channel with Tech’s:

Left and right channels with PS’s:

4.5” x 15” x 5.5”

This is the site you can use to help determine it.  I would still model it in Xsim just to make sure you are happy with the projected results.  

BMR - a good starting point would be a https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dnr-40-4-ohm-10w-precision-audio-grade-resistor--004- 4" target="true">4 ohm resistor and a .7 inductor

PS 95-8 - a good starting point would be a 7 ohm resistor and a 1 inductor

Don't forget that when you model it to make sure you use the as-wired impedance, ie, if you wire the 2- 4 ohm drivers in series, it would be 8 ohm, etc., etc., yada yada yada.

Thank you. I actually forgot they were being used in pairs, I'll have to redo that.

Thought I’d post an update for the living room setup. 

 

The dual 6.5” sub enclosure has been built and currently in use. It’s amazing how two small subs can really fill a room and then some. The sealed enclosure is built out of 12ply 3/4” birch and then stained for protection. Sadly, I’ve already noticed my toddler playing on the speaker as if it’s a drum. 

As for the sound bar, construction is finally moving along. Holidays and kids often does not leave time for speaker construction. The enclosure is being built out of 9ply 1/2” birch plywood, with added internal reinforcements. As of right now, the main Skelton/box has been constructed, but it was requested mid build that the box sit flush or at least somewhat flush against the wall which meant the back wall had to moved inset to accommodate the request. Positive bit though, managed to increase the overall length of the enclosure by 4” which in turn helps make up the difference with the back panel moving inset. 

Through out the week I won’t be doing much with it, maybe build the BSCs so their ready and waiting for install.

 

Also wanted to say THANK YOU for all the help. You guys are awesome!

Man that looks awesome!  I really love  the look of it.  I would love to sit here and say, my toddler has never played any of my subwoofers...but that would be a lie.  He may have even pushed in a cone...duh!  I am starting to learn the value of covering them 🙂  

 

I can't wait to see the soundbar!
