Cool A small home theater - Dorm-style

Upgraded system!







As you can see, went in to DIY. I built the center and rear speakers myself (rears first, bad finish).. I bought the front speakers used, for an awesome price, with new bass-units .. It's a ProAc look-a-alike, with the 18w-8530, but with a better tweeter (D2905/970000).. The center and rear speakers consists of Scan-speak aswell, apart from the tweeter ind the rears, which is wavecor..

You can look at the original post below, to see where i came from


OLD POST:


Hello HTS!

First post

I finally finished my setup, in my tiny room. Comments are appreciated, especially on the Room Frequency Response!

Edit: If you have suggestions to improvements please tell me.. I don't really have more ideas..

HELP!: After buying new speaker cables, i recalibrated my system, and i lost my >20hz bass.. My response from 16-17 hz(look at the roomresponse below), is moved up to 20hz.. What can i do, to get it back? :/

Infinity Primus 250/150/C25
SVS PC12-NSD
Denon AVR-1713
Homemade acoustic panels

Old stuff(stacked to the right of the TV):
H/K AVR 135
H/K DVD 22

If you noticed the cable under the TV(Left side): It's my old broken optical cable, i taped to the red-light limiter on the SUB - So i can moniter it all the time

The optical cable installation to the limiter light:

You need 5 total posts before your pictures will appear. There's a "post padding" thread around here somewhere that you can do some fluff posts to get your count up.

Re: A small home theater - Dorm-style

The room looks great!
On a side note, The measurement that you got using the Audyssey Mic is unfortunately going to yield inaccurate results as there needs to be a correct calibration file for it.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Thank you! I'm really happy with it..

Are there any guides to do this correction?
