Can I place two speakers back to back in a box, any issues being too close or touching? Answered

2.5w 8ohm 3" speaker in a plastic box 1cm apart, possible to operate?


Yeah that'd be fine, the magnetic force doesn't effect the internal moving piece that's attached to the diaphragm on the other one, well it might but not significantly enough to make the sound different.

I tried because I wanted a set of speakers for my computer, I used 2.5" speakers, 2.5w 8ohm if that helps.

Thanks a lot all of you, box is 3"x6"x7" and speakers (2.5" 8 ohm) are not touching, 2 cm apart back to back.
thanks again..

Should be fine, as long as there isn't a direct short.

Not sure whether you'd be risking phase effects. Depends on the size of the box...
