I should have known that once Rick came along, I'd have to rethink everything I was already planning.
Rick, a ton of what you said is stuff I had already considered, but the guy on studio-central forums made me think that with a big enough fan, the noise would be lessened by doing a "case within a case" (so to speak).
So it looks like what you're saying is, I would need to put some "duct work" from the exhaust area of the cabinet, with several "bends" (possibly coming around behind the desk?) to help disperse the sound? Am I reading that right? Also, do you have something similar with the intake? I can't tell from the pictures. Also from the pictures, I have a hard time discerning where the exhaust plenums end up. How far do they go, and where does the air come out? Do you have any schematics anywhere you could share?
And what did you build those tubes out of anyway? (Sorry if all that is answered in the thread, I just went straight to the pics since I was in a hurry to head out and meet some friends - if it's all answered there, I'll read it fully this evening)
Thanks a ton!
We play in another house, what should we fear?
