Next project is going to be fairly simple:

My subwoofer is from Elemental Designs... I've had it for quite a while now with no problems and I really like it. Indoor know if anyone followed the drama that happened with Elemental Designs, but the company no longer exists and they basically ripped off a lot of people. At some point they started using poor quality drivers that eventually cause the amps to burn up leaving owners with a big heavy box that doesn't make sound.
The guy that was doing the repair work for eD has been helping out owners and he has suggested swapping out the driver with one from Infinity. The swap should keep the amp alive and keep the subwoofer running for years. A side bonus is that apparently it will also improve the low end range, so that's pretty cool.

The point of all of that is that I will be ordering the driver for my subwoofer later this week. I'll post photos of it while I'm working on it and I will post up some before/after REW graphs if I can remember how to use the program

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

No major new updates to the movie room - but we have a whole lot of new beer brewing equipment... my wife went on a big buying spree at the local homebrew shop. Been doing quite a bit of brewing in the last few weeks instead of working on that subwoofer project I mentioned.

A friend loaned me his PS4 for a week as well - now I am going to HAVE to get one of them! Graphics are amazing and the games I played made amazing use of the 7.1 surround sound. That is going to be (hopefully) my Christmas present from my family...

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Finally had a chance to order the new driver for my subwoofer... and OnlineCaStereo . com screwed my order up. I ordered an Infinity Reference 1260W and for some reason on the Packing Slip someone added a handwritten "2" - and sent me a 1262W! Unfortunately that is not usable for my purpose, they have not responded to my emails, and their phone system only gives the option to select the last name of a person to talk to... so we'll see how this goes. I remembered after the fact that they screwed up the speaker order for my Jeep back in February - only sent me one pair of speakers instead of the 2 I ordered and I had a hard time getting them to complete the order. Keeping my fingers crossed that this gets resolved soon and I don't have to file a PayPal claim.

On a more positive note:
We just tapped a keg of a Chocolate Stout that we brewed a few weeks ago... the other tap is a hard cider that my wife made last month.

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Thanks Todd!
I know it isn't as impressive as the big budget rooms, but I'm very happy with how it has turned out so far

On the sub front - after calling customer service 3 times I finally got someone on the phone and I was told that "within 24 hours" a manager would be contacting me to send me a return shipping label and that they would get the correct driver out to me ASAP.

I should have some time this afternoon to post up a few pictures of some recent minor changes to the room - replaced my rear surround speakers, and added a new star wars themed decoration...

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Watched first 3/4 of How to Train Your Dragon 2 in 3D last night - great movie up to the point I had to turn it off to go get some food for my wife (she just got home from a soccer game and we had nothing to eat at home! DOH!)

Also ordered a PS4 Sunday morning - so the movie room will be getting a big upgrade there

So they failed big time here... never got back to me, I tried calling Monday - after 6 calls I wasn't able to get through their voicemail tree to talk to an actual person so I filed a dispute on PayPal. As of 4:15 Wednesday I haven't heard anything back yet... so the "allow 48 hours before escalating the dispute" timeframe has passed. This is ridiculous...

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

On a positive note - my PS4 with Star Wars Battlefront arrived yesterday! Have it hooked up to the "little" TV in the living room right now just to get the game downloaded and installed, but I'll be moving it to the theater tonight now that it is ready to play!

I'll add pics of my most recent updates soon...

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Big updates coming this week:
An upgraded subwoofer driver will be arriving today. Ended up buying one from a different company - Online Car Stereo is making me ship the "wrong item" they sent me back to them at my expense for them to refund my money. Crazy to have to pay for their mistake, but at least they finally got back to me after PayPal made them.

Tomorrow the Great Northern Popcorn Machine I ordered will be arriving... that is going to be awesome!
