    Can't talk smack.. can't even talk at all. My poor Bears are gonna get killed this year. On the plus side, the Pac12 is well represented in the Top 25..
  3. The SWAMP! - Volume Two

    I don't think you're alone. I'd say a good percentage of the population will have a similar response. But, and it looks like you see it, it's just the lizard portion of your brain that's taking temporary control of your noodle. Now, I may be in the minority, but I actually think it's healthy...
  4. What 9.2 set up is best

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    So, as always, it depends. Having the hardware is only a part of the overall solution. You have to look at placement of the speakers, listening position, acoustical treatments, etc. If you already have the speakers, I'd probably add them unless they're so bad that they're distracting. Would I...
  5. What 9.2 set up is best

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    You have go give WAY more details.they that to fey a real opinion. For example, budget, room size, room shape... and even then you may have a preference for a certain sound in music or movies that others may or may like as well. But philosophically, 3 way floor standers costing thousands each...
  6. Need suggestions for home theatre around $2000 with specific requirements.

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Some general comments on the systems suggested: Paradigm makes good speakers. I think they offer up some of the best bang for the buck out there. I haven't heard the latest version of their Cinema line, but I would expect that they sound good. That screen size may be a little big -- I went to...

    Just in case you haven't see it... I'm hoping it's all real.
  8. Which headphones do you currently use?

    I have three that I listen to: AKG K701 -- got them when they first came out Shure 210 -- for when I'm traveling Koss KSC75 -- probably the best buy of all headphones that I know
  9. Build from scratch new home theater $4000-$6000

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Yeah, there are a few issues that need to be addressed if an IB is the right route, but if you can get one installed properly, I think that would end up being the best solution for him.
  10. Build from scratch new home theater $4000-$6000

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    A thought that you might consider since you haven't put up drywall yet, installing some IB subwoofers if you have the ability. Just an idea...

  13. Creepiest Movie

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    A little late to the party here, but there are a couple: Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer -- it had a gritty, low budget feel the whole time, and just creeped me out to no end. Audition -- already been mentioned, so I'll leave that one Hellraiser -- I saw this one when it first came out, and...
  14. Figured I'd Share...The Apaches

    DIY Speakers
    Very impressive build and response curve! Was this an established build? Or was it something you cooked up yourself?
  15. Factory Bose/DIY thoughts?

    DIY Speakers
    Just a few quick thoughts... I completely agree with GranteedEV about the ability to simply swap out an old driver with a completely new one. It can be done, but the chances of it sounding good without any further modifications is EXTREMELY low. Some questions that would help me recommend a...

    What happened to The Swamp? I go on a little sabbatical for a while, and it looks like the Swamp was drained? Wha' happen'd?
  17. Sound Treatment

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I have a question about this one -- my very basic understanding is the the current conventional wisdom is that you want a dead-ish front with a live-ish back. With this in mind, would having absorbers in the back be good? Or would diffusers be better? Again, assuming I'm "correct", what about a...

    Which one do you like? And what about them is the part that you like as opposed to something like...

    As of today, College Football is dead. (Cal lost and will not be going to a bowl game) Hrumpth.
  20. noob questions about speakers.

    Home Audio Speakers
    There are some speakers that are suited to wall mounting, but I think they're more the exception than the rule. I can't think of any right off the top of my head, but definitely look for a speaker WITHOUT backward firing ports. One thing to realize, almost everything in audio is a trade-off...
