  1. AV Home Theater
    I have an Anthem mrx520 powering my 5.2 setup. When listening to movies at -20db the speakers sounded fine but was worried to drive my 4ohm speakers any harder using the integrated amp. I just added an ATI525NC class D amp which is 300wpc into 4ohms and switched the connection to my Anthem...
  2. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hello all. First off, I apologize if this is a stupid question. I have a Denon X1300W receiver and I am looking at adding two additional height speakers, if possible to make my set up 5.1.4. My question is if it is possible to do with my receiver via a 2 channel stereo amplifier, or possibly...

  4. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I am going to need to install couple outlets into a closet for my HT room. I picked up 2 30amp berakers and 4 x 20 amp breakers. I want to have plenty of power. should I use 10/2 or 12/2. Romex? I am thinking this will give me service to 6 outlets in the closet with enough juice for a ton of...
  5. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I'm thinking about adding a second sub to my HT room. I currently have a Reaction Audio BPS-212 subwoofer. I originally was going to purchase an HSU, SVS, or Rythmik but then the RA subs came out and for $400 I took a gamble on the BPS-212. It's a sealed sub with 2 12" bi-polar drivers and I...

    If you have almost the perfect Home Theater and want to Amaze people and do something just to upgrade your home theater then listen to me and by transduces from earthquake and a separate amplifier and wire up your chair or couch or even a small platform
  8. System Setup and Connection
    I currently am using a Pioneer Elite VSX-23TXH to power a 5.1 speaker system. The speakers are all DIY and the entire front soundstage has an approximate impedance of 4-ohms (which the receiver is not recommended to drive). I have a Dayton APA150 amplifier I would like to use to to power only...
  9. DIY Audio
    Hello all, Originally posted this in AV processing, this is probably the correct forum. Been considering purchasing the Oppo 105 for a few months. Really wanted to get the best DAC available in the Sabre ESS 9018 into my system, but paying 1,500 to do so was hard for me to justify given that...
  10. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    My wife told me, "We need more bass in our HT". To say I was excited was an understatement. Here's what I have currently. One AA Avalanche 18" in 9 cu ft @20hz, it's in a 24" sonotube. It's running off an EP2500 bridged @ 4 ohms. I'm running an RCA to 1/4" adapter cable to a BFD 1124P(never...
  11. Two Channel Audio
    Anyone have experience or comments on the Parasound Halo P5 2- channel pre? A few features are catching my eye: 2.1 with analog bass management; adjustable high and low pass crossovers; built in DAC with usb, optical, coax inputs; phono inputs; and home theater bypass to name a few. The...
  12. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm very happy with the 5.1 setup but would be VERY easy for me to add a rear center channel and was thinking the SVS Ultra surround and mounting it centere below the projector. My problem is since my listening position is so close to the rear wall my head sits about 2' off the wall and would...
  13. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've got two UltiMax 18's with an iNuke 6000 on them. I want quite a bit more output down low. I don't listen to movies real loud but I am kind of a bass head. It does ok until you start flirting with the 20 something hz range then it falls off as expected. I also want a significantly...
  14. Home Audio Subwoofers
    My room is 14x20 with a 12' cathedral ceiling (8' walls and 12' at peak running the length of the room). This brings my total cu-ft of my room to just a smidge under 3,000. about 2925 to my calc. Currently using one HSU VTF-15H MK2 and the performance is really good but was considering adding...
  15. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I am building a single TC Sounds LMS ULTRA 5400 18" in a 4 cubic foot sealed box and plan on using it in my enclosed basement theater with dimensions of approximately 12’ x 19’ with 8’ ceilings. This DIY hobby has left me with quite a few subs and no logical place to put them. Is it even worth...
  16. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I am going to be adding a Ultra X-12 to my LFM-1 plus and I have a couple questions. 1) I will be running them from my Pioneer SC-77 Receiver - My plan to minimize the amount of cables needing to be run (my subs are in the back of the room) was to just run them from one subwoofer out with a y...

    When adding delay to the mains where do you measure the distance from, the grills are the drivers to the LP?
  18. DIY Speakers
    Pros and cons of adding additional weight to speaker enclosure? Increase dampening of enclosure? Reduce vibrations? Sound better ? I have an idea to add weight to the internal structure of a prototype I am building and want to bounce it off you guys. This is a 3 way bookshelf size box. Separate...
  19. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Greetings, I play music with the trio Djesben. My band members and I would like to add some projections to our live show, and we're eager to learn more about how to make that happen. The rooms we play are usually fairly small (50 to 200 people in the audience) with ambient light, and a variety...
  20. Home Audio Speakers
    Does anyone know the effect of adding speakers to the same receiver as it relates to overall volume? If I add two speakers and move from 7.1 to 9.1 it stands to reason that volume/SPL would go up. However, if it is done with the same receiver, and no additional amplifiers, I now am dividing the...
