    This is for a huge home theater. I have a power transformer that converts 380VAC between two legs of a 3-phase power system down to 230VAC, with a center-tap of the secondary being our "neutral" for this secondary. (FYI, there are three such transformers, connected between phases A and B; B and...
  2. How to get your guitars pushed into the extreme ends in the stereo width?

    Pro Audio
    Hi everyone, I am working on a track that has too many elements in the mid region - the rhythm guitars, lead guitars, snare, vocals. So I tried panning, didn't work as I want the mid region to have quite a lot of room for the kick, bass, snare and vocals to fit in. I tried the Waves S1 imager...
  3. Need quick DIY screen help (SW paint sale ends tomorrow!)

    DIY Screens
    Hello everyone! Long time lurker here but just registered a few minutes ago, so this is my first real post. For well over a year I've been thinking about painting either my wall or some Sintra (Komatex) that I can obtain inexpensively through a friend who owns a sign shop. I noticed several...
  4. Tinning the ends of speaker wire, good or bad

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    So without getting into really deep discussion, is tinning (soldering) the ends of the speaker wires a good or a bad thing? My EVs don't have the normal binding posts (just a nut type thread on) so to keep the strands from separating under the pressure I have soldered the 12awg copper together...

    I have not updated my pictures on Webshots as I intend in the next few months to update my Outlaw 990 to the new upcoming and soon to be released 978. I think that this is a great hobby and one that seems to keep on ticking. Everyday there is something new, better, and more convienent. Another...

  9. 2 15" on a baffle against ceiling corner (open ends)

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello guys, Preface: I built a nice 12" 8cu.ft MLTL sub 4 years ago that served well both for movies and music. Now i built new OB mains with 15" drivers and they go down to 30Hz and I'm amazed by OB bass and now the TL sub sounds boomy. Plus for movies it's very weak (I now realize that) So...
