  1. Considerations w/ Speaker Placement

    System Setup and Connection
    Hello again! As I'm sure you all know, loudspeaker placement can be of paramount importance when trying to optimize tonal balance, soundstage depth, imaging, clarity, etc. A great deal of thought, time, and effort was put in to positioning the components of our TARA Labs listening room. Some of...
  2. On Display or In the AV Closet Cabling Considerations

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Display your gear with minimal cable lengths or separate your gear in a closet and live with much longer cable lengths? These are two different approaches folks take and a lot of ad-hoc in between. The approach I have taken is to provision two a/v closets supporting three home theater...
  3. New Home - Theater Considerations

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Within a year and a half I want to break ground on a new home. I am currently starting a list of wants and requirements. I definitely want to have a nice theater in the basement and I was looking for a list of considerations for new builds. I have not seen a thread that looks at all these...
  4. Epson 3010E projector considerations

    Home Theater Projectors
    Hi all; I'm looking at the new wireless Epson 3010E for my first projector. Cannot find it in their Calculator Pro site, though. My viewing area is about 7' wide, the throw distance about 16' and there is a nice platform for the pj at about 9' height. When I'm really stretching out my Natuzzi...

  6. Considerations for home theater in a new home

    DIY Speakers
    I am moving, and my mind has already turned to my HT setup. Immediately, the DIY instinct took over. I was wondering if anyone might give their thoughts on a DIY design - 5.1 or 7.1 (possibly 5.2 or 7.2) - for a large, and odd-shaped room. I will post floor plans when I get them. My...
  7. Power Considerations

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Hi guys. As far as i know this topic has not yet really been covered. I have noticed in other posts that many are using power amplifiers for each channel in surround and high powered pro amplifiers to drive LFE. Considering the level of current required by such devices i was wondering what...
  8. Baffle step considerations...

    DIY Speakers
    I am about to embark on my next speaker project, 4 floor standing full range (55hz-20khz) HT speakers. I will be using the same driver complement I used in my center channel, namely 4 each 5" drivers, 3" drivers and 5/8" tweeters. My thought on how to build this is with 3 individual cabinets...
  9. Any special considerations when correcting low end of full range signel??

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I think that the house curve for a full range application might have to be more subtle (using the DEQ2496) One consideration is that the amp will be asked to do a lot more than 80htz and below Another consideration is that I will equalizing only down to 40htz (maybe 3db down at 35htz) I'm...
