Friends wife asked me to suggest an upgrade to their New TV's sound.
Requirements are hi WAF (obviously) sound from TV and be able to stream music from iPhone / Ipad.
she would like to be able to upgrade it down the road, maybe.
So My thinking was simplest would be something like...
I am searching for an alternatve driver instead of the si15 to go with some electrostatic speakers.
Box is already build, sealed 3cu, plate amp is already bought, it is a dayton 540w at 4ohm.
Seems that google checkout has retired and stereo integrity has no other payment options for customers...

So I was trying out headphones at a local store yesterday, tried out the Sennheiser HD 558s, and I absolutely loved them.
Didn't at all like the 518, or the Momentums either.
Problem is, I want them for at work, and they're an open air design so unfortunately that's not going to work out...
I have previusly built a cupple of full Range speakers with tangband elements to my living rom.
I am playing with the idea to build some (7) full Range speaker/horn to my ht, as how, i prefer to follow proven designs.
I have found only one option so fars, the VH-1. Other popular designs...
Long time lurker here. Have spent countless hours on this forum for the last couple years. I enjoy reading all the DIY stuff people do and also following the great work of some of the contributors here. After years of debate and convincing the wife, I can now say that I am about...
I was so close to buying a Panasonic ST30 or GT30 but was put off first by the fluctuating gamma problem (which I understand has now been fixed with a firmware update) but more importantly, because it doesn't support RGB 4:4:4 for really sharp output from my PC.
As my PC and TV will be used not...
Hello, am installing built in LED tv in living room. This is not main TV or home theater area but will be used for watching sports and possibly listening to music, streaming Pandora etc. Am thinking of getting a sound bar system for this but am not sure this would be adequate. I am not...
Title should read Video card/Home brew HTPC alterative to Optoma 3D XL
I have an Optoma HD65 projector and I'm trying to avoid buying the optoma 3D-XL hardware that allows the projector to display 3D content. Does anyone know of a workaround for this?
It seems silly to me that we should need...
I have not seen any 3D material on my current setup, and there is nowhere local I can rent a 3D Blu-Ray.
I was wondering if anyone has compared the image quality between a 3D BluRay disc vs. 3D upscale from a set top box vs. 3D upscale by a program like PowerCinema vs. just re-encoding a...
If there is one thing I'm installing a lot of in my theater build....it's speaker wire. Binding post wall plates and banana plugs are going to be quite expensive. Banana plugs alone are about 1.5$ a piece which will be at least 65$ in banana plugs alone for my theater. Binding posts wall...
Ok so absolutely gutted to miss out on getting hold of the Exodus Tempest for a ported build.
What other comparable drivers are out there, in terms of build quality/low distortion/output etc etc? And ballpark cost I guess.
Geez Kevin; wish you well...
I m looking for a more affordable alternative for the Velodyne SMS-1. I do not need calibration for more than 1 subwoofer and also auto-calibration is not important to me (want to do it myself). Also RCA needed as my subwoofer does not support XLR.
Can someone tell me what to choose?
I moved from a single 10" woofer, to a pair of 315HF subs, and would now like to consider a different 12" sub that would go into a sealed 2cu ft box for <$200.00. Seeking sound quality over SPL. Ideas?
I was told today that the new run of AVBP2's wouldn't be ready for at least 6 months and they could give no further time-frame information.

A friend of mine recommended I post this question here, as he believes the level of knowledge is a little higher than where I originally had it.
I am looking for a cheaper amp with a similar spec to the Behringer EP2500 and I think I have found one.
The Pyle PZR6XA is available...
Hello everyone, this will be a build thread of sorts. I just wanted to share my experience and hope that it helps someone. Like many of you I decided that DIY provided the best bang for the buck and allowed for greater flexibility than you could find from buying a manufactured sub. Maybe some...
