For experts this may sound silly :D but for begginers every small trick helps.

There is no way I can hang wooden boxes to my false ceiling. I need something very light weight.

So I made boxes with cardboard and came up with mounting idea with hair pin and plastic pipe from lollypops :cool::cool:

Pics are self explanatory I guess. ...
Enjoy the desi jugad ....

Note: there will be vibrations with cardboard boxes since they are light weight. But these are just for Atmos effects. So it's fine ....

This is the actual box and the bottom white cloth is a banian cloth.

I applied two or three layers of glue all over the inside of the box. It became pretty hard after drying.

Great work!
Any specific reason to choose 12" drivers for ATMOS?
You could have got away with much smaller drivers :)

Love it. I made a diffuser few months back, with cardboard boxes i got off Amazon for 300 Rupees. Just to test it and see if it really works. Not to hijack your thread, but this might be a cheap way of testing whether a diffuser works in your room or not. Not made with any scientific formula.

I tried a few small drivers for surrounds ... but they are not impressive.
They struggled to make their presence felt since my center and fronts are 12" drivers and they are too dominating.

They make a big difference. I dont have much room behind my listening position, and these two helped immensely to get rid of any direct reflections.
Wow !! That's great to know !!! :) :)

It is the "effort" that counts, doesn't matter right or wrong, you always learn something out of it.. Hope you become "swiss army knife" of DIY soon..

I have been inspired by some of your DIY builds, and would soon be replicating some of your ideas.. Keep continuing this DIY with the same passion.. Cheers
