Re: The Confessional

I guess the only thing I could confess to is that I have not upgraded a single item in my HT since I bought my Sony PJ two years ago. This will be the longest stretch ever but I have lots of other hobbies and frankly needed to get off the never ending string of "incremental HT upgrades" I was on. Definitely reached the level of diminishing returns. I have however simply enjoyed the HT and cannot believe it recently had its 10th anniversary. That's a decade of use and thousands of hours of enjoyment. Still use it nearly daily as I do not relegate it to just movies but do enjoy watching sporting events on the big screen as much or more. My daughter and I have been watching the Women's College World Series and it has been a lot of fun. She hopes to play softball in college some day. That will be sooner rather than later since she is heading into her Junior year of HS.

No, that one doesn't ring a bell. I was more of a Contra, RBI Baseball, and Tecmo Bowl kind of guy.

Re: The Confessional

I love Dig Dug! I'd like to track-down an old Dig Dug upright and get it in my home for a while....

I don't remember lemonade stand... will have to look at some pictures to see if I can jog my memory.

No shame in running good sounding gear... more or less a testament to your amazing ability to resist upgradeitis! ;-)

Re: The Confessional

[Me] Hi, my name is Lou...

[Group] Hi, Lou.

[Me] ...and I'm a bass-a-holic.

[Group] Ahhhhhhh!

[Me] But I've been living with less-than-optimal EQ and setup. I yearn for the day when I can upgrade my room from a 10x12 cell and possibly add a second sub. I'd also like to trade a few Hz on the low end of my ported sub for the tighter bass offered by a sealed unit (or is that an audio myth?).

.
I try to be as good as my dog thinks I am

Re: The Confessional

[group member willis] hi Lou, welcome. I am wearing my armor today so I'm not afraid to tell you, ol buddy, that is a myth. As long as the bass system is designed AND executed in accordingly there is no reason ported subs can't be equally "musical". Theoretically sealed subs can dig deeper due to room gain, but the point at which room gain takes effect is dictated by the longest wall in the room. It also takes multiples of power and excursion to achieve. Sorry if I put lead in your balloon as it seemed to be filled with helium. Lol
Ok. Ready to be shelled...

Someone had their breakfast this morning!

Lou: If I were you, I'd run out immediately and buy a second sub. 10x12 = plenty of space for two subs!
