    I have been circumventing HDMI compatibility issues for the last two and a half years since I got my 4k tv. I have finally about had it and I am considering an upgrade to a receiver with 2.0/2.2 hdmi inputs to keep compatibility with my 4k60/hdr10 capable system and hopefully last into the...

    Hello. I'm planning to build my amp with modules from ICEpower 300ASC or Hypex UcD400. What do you think is best? thank you.
  3. Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Hi all, I've been doing some research lately, trying to figure out which path to take. I'd like to build a custom subwoofer box. I've done it many times for car audio, but not for home theater. I'm trying to figure out if I: - need to get a subwoofer driver made for home theater or if I can use...

    For a while, I had my two Q18's in an extended cab ranger running on 2200w. They were extremely held back by box size, I believe they were in a 4cu.ft tuned to 29hz, but there was a considerable amount of port compression. They still sounded fairly musical though. I recently bought a Sundown...
  5. Mobile Audio
    So I just got a new Jeep, it has the Uconnect system with 6 speaker sound. For my 6 speaker system, speakers are a pair of 3.5" in the dash (8Ω), and 6x9s (4Ω) in all four doors. The system actually sounds really good considering the stock speakers are usual paper cones ($7/ea Mopar). They...

    I've boiled two home audio systems down. I'm having a hard time choosing between the Philips HTB5544D/F7 and the Panasonic SC-BTT490. I couldn't find review that would compare the two of them side by side. They both are good systems. What would nudge my decision one way or the other?:huh:
  9. Home Theater System Recommendations
    This is my first time actually posting in a forum. I do a lot of reading and researching but have never actually asked a question. I know that this question has been asked a thousand times (I think I've actually read all of the posts) but I just can't decide and it's making me crazy. Which...
  10. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm adding onto my current Home Theater setup, which currently has: Marantz SR6005 Receiver, L/R/C Paradigms 100/60 Series, Dayton 10 inch Sub. I'm looking to add two more speakers and am trying to decide between HSU MK2 Bookshelf or Martin Logan FX2s. I'm really leaning towards the MLs as...

    I'm long overdo for a receiver upgrade, my current Denon is nearing eight years old. My big requirements are that it supports 4K (future proof), L/R pre-amp outputs, and has good room EQ. I have it narrowed down to two choices and I'd really like to get the Onkyo NR818 since it has Audyssey...

  15. Home Theater System Recommendations
    After spending some time reading up on AV receivers I feel like I know a lot less than I did before. I need some education and help in building my new system. A long time ago I owned a HTIB from Sony, I liked it, but it wasn't anything go home and write about. Now that I'm an adult and have...

    Hello HTS World, Sort of new, been playing over in the Audio section for a bit trying to put together a Home Theater in my newly built residence. I have a bonus room that I outfitted perfectly for a nice move room (just wished they would have let me brick up the windows). Anyway, the room is...

    Hi all I'm waiting for my SEOS waveguides to get in but I need to get something done. I can't decide on the sub. I want 2 15's in seperate boxes and the max box size is 8 ft3 before driver and bracing. I'm wavering between sealed and ported. The 2 size constraints are max outside height is 28...

    Ok so my original plan was to build two sealed Rythimk 1505’s($1,200) or 1510hp’s(1,460). The significant other seems to think that is to much. :crying: So now I’m just thinking maybe one 1510hp (730) My room is about 3,900 cu.ft. Barrel vaulted. Music/Movies is probably 60/40 and I don’t listen...
  19. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'm going to be putting together a modest little sub to augment the bookshelf sized speakers I'm making for my parents HT. I've modelled lots of entry level 8" and 10" subs and have it narrowed down to the Dayton DCS205 or DCS255. Space limitations are <1cuft. Price-wise the 70W plate amp...
