      Just sharing this idea I had to see what people think of the feasibility. I am thinking about building a floating TV panel that will stand off the wall about 4 inches. I was thinking I could build some shallow speaker enclosures on the back of the panel with the drivers flush with the visible side of the panel.

      Not sure what having a huge baffle like this would do to the frequency response.

      First, I think it is a really cool idea! The large baffle will actually help you not lose as much bass via baffle step. So that is a big plus, as it’ll help keep crossover costs down. The only thing I would think that would be problematic is finding thin enough speakers. If it is 4″ deep You probably will only have about 3.25″ to work with (about 0.25″ for the recess and 0.5″ for the rear material. Plus you will want it to breathe, so a little less than that (3″ maybe). I think that will be the most limiting factor of a build like this.

      I did a project a few years ago that was only about 3″ deep that might work. If this is anything like you are thinking. Obviously I am only talking about the front part of that speaker.

        The Dayton LW150 is only 1-1/2″ deep, so if it’s flush mounted to the front you’ll have plenty of room. And all you’ll need for volume is 1/2 cuft and a 2″ port x 9″ L to get down into the 30’s. Couple that with a PC-83 and you’d have a simple 2 -way system where both are dB matched @ 86. And if the screen is big enough, you could have a LCR, the ultimate SOUNDBAoRd.

        Ah, the sketch didn’t load on my phone. No matter, the center channel usually doesn’t have much in the way of really low end extension. You could just go with a single PC83 for the center and skip the horizontal MTM design.
