    Hello, I am trying to find out how to mount ADA Suite 7.1 and 8150 Amplifier in a small rack since it has rack mounting tabs built in on the sides. I just think it will look goofy without rack mounting it, only need small rack or rack shelf. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello, I am starting to build my home theater (I'm a newbie :D), but after looking through these forums I am now interested on building my own speakers. I have seen a couple of kits from the links to the websites just below the menu on the website. My first question is: How do these...

    Hi all, I'm thinking of doing a ported design using an EX 15. How much difference would it be going from 17hz to 14 hz in the tune. It models flat with a 17hz in 8 cubes. When I use the same 8 cubes but take it to 14hz I go -6 to 8db. I'll try to post. Is there something that would do better. 8...

    I am currently finishing my basement for multiple uses. We are adding a bedroom, bath, play area for my kids and a "family room" that will also contain a mediocre wet bar. I am in the process of convincing my wife that we have the room to install a projector and screen. I have what I feel is...

    I have flipped this room every which way and this is the only way i can get all the spaces to work. I'm having trouble visualizing how i can break up the projector viewing section from the bar secton as I do want to do a very dark wall surround around the screen. Thats my first issue, second...
  10. DIY Speakers
    I need to build some speaker grills to protect my 3-ways that I build recently. My 1yr old has decided that the most appealing thing to do in the house is to scoot at high speed and try to punch the cones of my AE TD12S drivers. So far they've been unscathed. I've thought about this...

  12. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I had been looking into these things for years but I never got very far until recently, when I stumbled accross a design for a power port that was designed to tune a 300L+ enclosure to 10Hz. Very soon after I found the calculator on another forum. The idea behind these things is fairly...

    Hello everybody. Been reading up on the board here a bit and decided that I should join so that I could post up and pick your brains at to which HT enclosure I should build for my chosen subwoofer. I got a good deal on an Fi Q12 so that is our starting point. I'm aware there are a variety of...
  16. DIY Speakers
    This is probably super basic for you guys but i'm finding a lot of conflicting info out there. What should I use to get the volume of an enclosure based on the Fs, Qts and Vas? The online calculators give me wildly different results and i usually end up doing it by hand from the Weems book...

    What is "the best design" for surround speakers for my 5.1 system? I'm building these speakers myself. Originally I was going to build a set of Dipole surrounds, but I've read that Dipole is actually not the design of choice for HT. up until now, all the speakers I've built have been direct...

  19. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi. I'm considering using a 15" driver combined with the 12" driver (and amp??) from an old M&K sub in a large (sealed?) enclosure. Will WinISD do multi-driver designs, or is it just a bad idea all together? The key word, I must add, is "considering." I may just sell my 3 subs and buy a (used?)...

    I purchased a pair of SVS MBS-02 bookshelf speakers last year and intended to purchase the MCS-02 center channel speaker as soon as the budget permitted. Unfortunately, I was laid-off last June and don't see having the budget for the MCS-02 any time soon. I've decided to try to build a more...
