Re: Houston DIY Home Theater Group?

Welcome aboard, JohnGalt. The Houston Home Theater DIY group has been meeting for about a year. We have members all over the Houston area. Many have built, are building, or are thinking about building a home theater. That may include projection screens, DIY speakers and subs, HT rooms, electronics mods and other ideas. We are open to suggestions for meeting topics and locations. Browse around the thread, and see what you might like to see and hear. Again, glad to have you!

Re: Houston DIY Home Theater Group?

I am out of Dallas, Houston is kind of a drive, but I am sure we could at least keep each other abreast of regional issues. I have spent most of my time installing systems preferring built-ins.

Sonotube

Hey Guys, I'm in the process of finishing up my new subwoofer, and I need to get rid of my old sonotube enclosure. I really don't want to just chunk it, so I was hoping one of you local houston guys would be interested. It is 300L and tune to around 16hz, adn will practically buckle your wall studs. I currently have a tempest-x in it that I will use in my new sealed box. The end cap are piano black, and its covered in black carpet. If you want it, come and get it.

Re: Houston DIY Home Theater Group?

Sorry Jim, Mark beat you to it, but if he doesn't end up taking it, you're next in line. Anyways, Mark has no bass at the moment, and if I'm not mistaken, you have an IB setup. I think NO BASS trumps MO BASS on this particular occasion.

I've got a couple of ideas for a get together...

With Halloween coming up very shortly, how about a get together for a scary movie? I just picked up "The Orphanage" on BR, a scary movie which I highly recommend to everyone.

Another idea, is to watch Casino Royale before Quantum of Solace comes out. Since this is the first Bond movie to pick up right where the previous one left off, I figured I would do a little catching up before I see the new one.

I'll gladly offer up my place, but I can really only seat about 5-6 comfortably. My place is pretty small...

Anyone with a bit more space willing to host an event?
