  1. DIY Audio
    I have 2 Paradigm PDR subs with built-in amplifiers. I have been having trouble with both recently with the power shutting off/on on them periodically. They are older PDR-10's one is a V3 the other a V4. One of them also has been making a loud clicking/popping sound while it is on (not the...
  2. DIY Audio
    Just curious if anyone had ordered one of these or any input on their claimed power output? I was looking at this board possibly, http://connexelectronic.com/product_info.php/cPath/39_41/products_id/145 They claim 250w @4 ohms. Honestly I'd really like something that comes unassembled, I'd...
  3. JVC
    Hi, My JVC D-ILA X3 showed the LED-code red - orange (permanently flashing) - red. It was difficult to find solid information about this problem. A lamp defect code acc. to manual is red - orange (but only 3 times flashing) - red. Meanwhile I've got my X3 fixed and I would like to share the...
  4. AV Home Theater
    Hi Guy's, I wanted to say a bit about my experience with this company. I will start from the beginning. I have a Sony VPL-VWPro1 and when I needed a new lamp I searched like most of us do and I remembered seeing this company in my city so I gave them a call. They were very polite and...
  5. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've been looking at trying an American Bass HD12 for my ranger...I have 2200w available, was thinking about doing 4-5cu.ft tuned to 25hz or so. I haven't had a chance to model it yet. Too busy with school and hospital clinicals/fire department ride alongs. Do you think that sub would have...
  6. DIY Screen Development and Testing
    This is my experience on trying to paint a screen. I am far from an expert on both home cinema and at being a painter so I intend to keep this as non technical as possible. I also intend as much as possible to only give the facts of my experience. The results: my post would not be possible...
  7. DIY Speakers
    Since the beginning, my quest for audio and video nirvana had the unfortunate result of a system evolution that would go through some rapid changes – equipment/speakers never remained the same for very long. When it came to my speaker selection, satisfaction was often piqued, but never...
  8. Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Just ran across Fidelizer, a free tool for helping turn off "unneeded" Windows services to optimize a PC for serious audio/media use. It has 3 selectable levels, Professional, Audiophile, and Extremist. I have not tried it yet. Anyone had experience with it?

Michael is an ISF graduate and a THX graduate as well as one of the leading instructors of the THX...
  10. General Service and Technical Information
    I have been having issues with on demand not working and assumed it was just a wonky system due to a decade old cable box technology. Then today I started having tiling and audio dropout on HD channels and intermittent loss of internet connection. So I called Cox customer service and after...

    Saints Row 4 not next-gen due to Volition’s experience on Summoner PS2 launch title Summoner put Volition Inc off ever rushing to meet a console launch deadline ever again. IGN asked Volition’s Jim Boone why Saints Row 4 hadn’t been produced for next-generation...
  12. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Does anyone have experience with HTD's microsub? With the 4th of July sale coming it might be worth it to play with.
  13. DIY Speakers
    A short time after sending Phil my old system of the Scan Speak 8545 and 9300 drivers mounted in cabinets, I receive them back. After opening the meticulously packed box I noticed that he had cleaned everything so they look new again. Thanks Phil. I had in fact, sent him a system that was old...

    If renting movies for $500 and $600 a pop didn't break the bank, perhaps the IMAX Private Theatre may. This system is more meant for those with thousand dollar toilet seats. The IMAX proprietary home theatre is destined for the "ultra-premium home theatre market," and is modeled after the...

  16. REW Forum
    Loved it. Showed me a lot about the response of the room. We have a big bump at 20 Hz, but I think that is mechanical. Going to mount the Behinger 8000 in a shock mount. Thinking that will eliminate that a good bit. At listening position, we have a 30dB drop at 100Hz, and there does seem to...

  20. Headphones | Head Gear
    I used to believe that burning in new speakers and headphones could not have a significant effect on how they would sound. Recently that belief changed, I was convinced I had witnessed a significant change in the sound of a set of new headphones after burning them in. On further investigation...
