hey,

ive had these energy in-wall speakers for about 2 years now and they sound great. im running them with a yamaha rx-v1. well my question is would the speakers sound even better if i built a small enclosure for each one. something maybe like around .5-.8 cubic ft. i have some pics of the speakers below. let me know what you guys think. Thanks in advance.

Most in-wall speakers are setup to run infinite baffle. So you would probably hurt the low end response by putting them in an enclosure.

Agreed... We used to do it years ago which worked great until people decided to move thier speakers and couldn't...

As stated they are optimized to worked in an IB environment. I had a set of Klipsch in walls in my last home and they did sound good, but in the new home I am shying away from in wall. This way I can replace and experiment with other drivers/setups easier.
