...So do you notice that there isn't a hole in the sound anymore? And also...do you have surrounds and surround backs?
I used to have a dedicated room for my HT (that's the setup on my avatar, room was 9x18x8), I had surrounds and back surrounds and two rows of seats

I no longer have that room, and because the space is smaller I'm just using surrounds, but I'm still using the same setup on the front (2FL + 2FR +1C)....is a total overkill sound.

My reference level is set @ -5.0db, most of the time when I watch a movie I always set the volume between -30db and -25db or I have to be prepared to get a on my door and an neighbor.




(A couple of months ago I was watching Flight of the Phoenix, and my next door neighbor knock on the door and told me that all the sounds were going through the walls (I'm sure he was mad because I didn't invite him ), and I'm sure that this was the cause of the problem (see spoiler))

I personally think the guy needs to be rushed off to medical care.

I mean for less than $1million you can buy real JBL cinema professional loudspeakers amplifiers and few more gadgets. Not forgetting real cinema seats as well! Now does that fit the bill?

One other major error if anyone cared to notice is the stage fronts are below the screen! Wrong!
