    So here's my situation, I built a 16x9 screen but found 70% of what I use the pj for, even as a main tv, is movies at 2.35:1.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've been thinking a lot about my current sub build (15" Dayton Quatro w/ 300W plate). It's plenty loud and my natural in-room response isn't particularly flat. I made that build with the best SPL/$ ratio in a "small" footprint. Clearly, the build is vented to maximize SPL, but is in a...
