  1. New Member Introductions
    Looking for some help on the ubiquitous flasing green light problem on mt Mitsu WS55909. Once I locate the board with the (usually) offending caps, I'll be off to the electronics store... 1st post...ever!
  2. System Setup and Connection
    In a 5.1 speaker setup with a 7.1 AVR, how should I wire the speakers. I have front left, right and center. There will be two rear speakers that will be above and directly behind the viewing area. Should I connect these speakers to the surround L and R connection on the AVR or the surround...

    Hi All, I had this problem a few months back. 3-4 times an hour the TV throws a message stating "Unsupported Mode" for 4-8 seconds then switches back to whatever is being watched. This happens on all channels, DVD movies, HD channels, etc. A recommendation from one of you was to switch input...
  4. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    Well guys, as much fun as the LLT's have been, they are just too big in my new room. You have to turn sideways to fit between the subs and the couch to get into the room, literally. No good. So I thought I'd throw some ideas out and see what you all thought.:ponder: TC Sounds 15" TC1000's X2 EP...
  5. Home Theater System Recommendations
    A novice who needs help...I'm going to describe my perfect system (created by limitations of my room) and we'll see what the feedback is...I can only say please recognize I will not be expecting audiophile sound, but would certainly like something that will not sound horrendous. I would like a...
  6. DIY Speakers
    Hello, I have all peerless six inchers for bass, three inch woofers for mids and a scan speak 9500 for the tweeter. All speakers are electroniclly crossed, 24 db per octave. My main question is to put the peerless mid/woofers in thier own cabinet sealed or just leave the back of the mids...
  7. Home Audio Acoustics
    Well my room design is one that breaks most of the logical rules of building a HT room. Here is the problem room..... - The room is 25x13 - Im designing it going 25 wide and 13 long - screen on the side wall, subs, speakers, AV equipment built into the side wall. - Im sitting 11 feet from...
  8. General Screen Discussion
    Hi- I need some ideas on what substrate to use and how to mount it for a screen that will "float" about 2 feet away from the current screen. If you take a look at my attached picture, you can see my current screen is paint (MMud) on the wall in an area that is about 89" wide by 2.5 feet deep...
  9. DIY Speakers
    I am bringing back my idea I had from around Christmas time. 2-way design with a TangBand W5-704, and a Dayton "silky." There's only 2 components on the woofer, and 3 on the tweeter, but that might all change once I get it all put together and figure out that it measures horribly. That's...

    Hi all, I am glad to be back in the land of HT sanity, after spending the last 6-8 months wading through the garbage over at AVS getting the latest on HDM (I think I went through four pairs of boots!). I jumped in early simply because I have an HD display that had never seen a hi-def signal...
  11. Home Audio Speakers
    As a long time owner and fan of M&K speakers, I was sad when I heard they had gone bankrupt to say the least. Today I thought I'd goolge them for updates and low and behold I find this link! Wohoo!:jump::jump::jump: Their new website will be mksoundusa.com and it sounds like they will continue...
  12. Home Audio Speakers
    I have read different height requirements from different sources. Is there any difference in set up with the new DolbyHD. Is approximately 2 feet from the top of your head when in the seated position still the recommended height? Well, I have not heard anything back so I will go with the old...
  13. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I just posted some pics of my HT Project, I'd like to get some more ideas on the design.
  14. Home Theater Seating and Accessories
    I have a L4 5 issue. I would like to know if any of you have this problem and if you have found seats that do not put to much pressure on my lower back. At a good price point please.
  15. General Screen Discussion
    Okay I'm back from vacation in PA... was caught in that mess on the interstate for 11 hours myself! This week I plan on having a lot of posts up and I am trying to corral up some more people to join in over here that have done some very interesting work with DIY screens. (One person is the...
  16. REW Forum
    OK I am starting over with my Sub eq. and I am looking at my basic setup. I have an old lexicon and I am running the sub out from the sub output on the Lexicon through a Y connector to the two channels in the BFD then out to a Kenwood amp to my two VMPS subs. I have played with my output level...
  17. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I purchased the Dayton 15" Titanic and Bash 500 watt amp today. I am super excited to get this project underway. Now I need to finalize my box design and purchase the materials for it. I am still not proficient using WinISD, and could use some help modeling ported boxes for my sub/amp combo...

    When your first powered sub, in the ubiquitous "box" form factor, is a smash hit like the "old" PB12-ISD was (called the PB1-ISD upon its debut some years back), you understandably might leave well enough alone. In fact, we did for quite a while. Today's PB12-NSD is our oldest Powered Box design...
