  2. Cambridge Soundworks BassCube 8S doing funky stuff, help appreciated

    Home Audio Speakers
    Before I really got into home theaters, I had a Cambridge Soundworks system. When I built the home theater and purchased SVS, the CS system went downstairs to the flat screen TV.

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hi, I've been roaming around on this forum for a while, mainly because we're moving from an apartment to a condo (which means I can finally do stuff to walls - I really don't like seeing wires around), but I'm definitely a noob, so sorry if my questions are dumb.... I realized at the end that...

    Hello, I built a computer about 8 years ago and it had its first mess up and the video card is fried. Now for my dilemma. The video card is of the AGP variety so I can get one fairly cheap to replace it but since agp is being phased out would I be better off starting from scratch again. If I go...

  16. Advice appreciated on which screen material to use

    DIY Screens
    Hi, I have just posted on the anamorphic forum about screen ratio but this question relates to screen material. I recently changed my Sharp XV-Z10000 for a JVC HD750 and while I am happy with the change one particular aspect seems worse with the new PJ and may be due to ANSI. I don't have a...

  20. My graphs - advice appreciated

    REW Forum
    Any advice appreciated. If you think I should do something different and remeasure, I can do that. This is the best location for my sub based on experimentation (front corner for SVS and behind my seat for MBM). Basically, I'm curious if I should equalize and/or get bass traps. SVS PB10 HSU...
