    DIY Audio
    I have some Klipsch F-10 speakers. They have a small wadded up area of polyfill behind the woofer and that's all. They are slightly muddy in the woofer's region compared to some more expensive cabinets I have heard. What I am windering is if the boxes would benefit at all from some quality...

  5. would there be any benefit of switching my system around?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    We live in an apartment and the living-room is pretty much an acoustic nightmare in my opinion. I was wondering if there would be a benefit by changing my room around, basically turning the system 180 degrees? I have built some acoustic panels using RHT80, 4 panels that are 2" thick with a 2"...

  9. Any benefit to having a front stage in the HT room?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I notice several homeowners building a stage in the front of their HT rooms. Is there any acoustical benefit or is it mainly for looks? I like the idea as for as cosmetics, but my mains will be well out from the front wall and the stage would have to be what I would consider deep, but maybe...
  10. Is there a real benefit to preamps or two channel amps in HT?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    This is more of a general question, as it gnaws at me a bit because I don't quite understand the benefit to your system to have these amps hooked up. From my own experience I have a dedicated room and a 7.1 HK 635 receiver that puts out 75 watts of quality power to all speakers, and the max I...
