Re: Houston DIY Home Theater Group?

Hi Sonnie,

I haven't heard a word.

I've rebuilt my mains again and have added 4 passive radiators to the lower cabinet and rebuilt the front baffel and removed the ports. Lower section box freq just dropped from 30 to 23 hz. Just got 'em in the house. Finished rebuilding my subs again too! I replaced all 8 Parts Express 1100 gram passives with the ones CSS is selling now loaded to 1800 grams each, bringing my box tuning from 24 hz to 18 hz for each sub.

I'm anxious to have a couple of the guys over now because it really rocks! Little problem developed though....the Rotel was starting to shriek at me and do some funny things I didn't like so it was shipped out Wednesday to Rotel for a total revamp and upgrade of the Eprom chip and updated software. A couple of days past warranty and they still took care of me!

That means, my demo is on hold for a couple of weeks. "I haven't even heard the mains yet"!! That's like having a new Corvette in the driveway waiting for the wheels....."

Maybe some others will chime in....

Take care,
Mike

Re: Houston DIY Home Theater Group?

Hey guys,

Sorry for the long delay again. I'm on active duty with the Army and will be returning to Houston in about a week. We should definitely get together at Mike's place soon. It looks like he's done an amazing job!! My Nat P Waves are nearly complete too, and I'll be starting the sub project shortly thereafter. Talk soon...

Re: Houston DIY Home Theater Group?

I've been busy.

1. I ditched DTV after 10 years and went with with AT&T's U-Verse. I got the U200 and 10Mb Max Internet package. I'm doing all kinds of geeky stuff with the house network like going Gigabit. I ran Cat5e throughout the house and from the NID to where the gateway would be. The installer said it was his favorite install to date. While waiting for the lineman to come hook us up, we watched Transformers. The IB was boomin'.


2. Squirrels in the attic ate my temporary speaker wire for the IB. It's wired with 12ga CL3 now and it's hidden from the evil tree rats. I originally posted about it here.

Anyone in Katy or the west side of town interested in carpooling?
