greetings from Virginia Beach

hi all,
i joined a few years ago, but somehow neglected to say hello.

HELLO!

i'm about to embark on a mission to improve the acoustics of the room where my, what i like to call "scrappy", home theater stuff lives and performs on occasion.

- homemade 7' screen (hangs in a hallway when not in use)
- ugly ceiling mount with older Mitsubishi DLP projector
- various re-foamed thrift store speakers (including Mini Advents, Infinity SS2001)
- homebuilt 12" sub
- Sansui AU-9500 and H/K A401 amps
- 17" MacBook Pro and MOTU Ultralite handle the video and audio playback

it isn't exactly classy, but it sure is fun to watch movies on!

i have ordered a calibrated mic from Herb at Cross Spectrum, downloaded Room EQ Wiz, and hope to soon semi-scientifically measure what is going on in this room with 5 6' windows and 2 skylights.
i will no doubt be posting some questions.
thanks in advance!
