Yes, I need to do a bit of work on wire mgmt. But, at this time I'm just enjoying how this system sounds!
I bet you are! That's an awesome office system. I really like the idea of subs with dual, opposing drivers and those appear to be incredible bargains too - just what those terrific little Polks needed. Take your time getting to wire management - doesn't look messy to me. I'd have a hard time going upstairs.

Recently, I overhauled my turntable (using it, but not quite done), rearranged the equipment on the rack (improving the ergonomics), and replaced the cheap BluRay player that I used for Netflix, etc with an Amazon Fire TV. I've also relocated my subs in the last few months. Part of the fun is fiddling with the stuff. I should probably update my thread, eh?

Yes, it is.............good eye! It is a Carver TFM-35

Here are a couple of additional pics when I purchased. I did the first mod on red LED's and then I switched them to blue:

Re: It's alive!!!

Nice. Carver and Polk are made for each other. I have two TFM15s that I rebuilt running bridged to my A5's in my HT setup. I replaced the meter lights in mine as well, but I wanted a more vintage look so I got some warm white leds and dimmed them down so that they look close to the original bulbs.

In my 2ch room I have a C-1 and a M1.0t that is currently with RichP getting the MkII opt2 upgrade. Thats powering a pair of LSI9's

I also noticed you seem to have swapped out the lsi7s for lsim's, and didnt say anything. Sneaky sneaky. lol

Cool! Any ETA on your M1.0t? If you need a beta tester, send it to my home and I'll take care of the rest. Oh, don't worry, I'll return it as soon the test is done. Probably in the next 15 to 20 years.........LOL!

Funny, I was originally looking for a pair of LSi 9's, but at the end I was only able to find the 7's. To my fortune, just few weeks after I purchased the LSi 7's, I found a great deal on a pair of LSiM 703's, it was too good to be true, but at the end it was true!

Yeah, I didn't mention them, but I posted some pics............you know, just in case the wife is checking this website...........LOL!

To be totally and brutally honest, be major impact after installing the acoustic panels was on the center channel. Since then, I didn't need to bump the level up on my center speaker as the sound is more clear and detailed on movies. There is indeed help on reducing reflections, but once again the immediate and more evident impact (once again) was on my center speaker.

I hope this helps.
