  1. Home Theater Projectors
    So I have finally convinced my wife to redo our theater room which is 8 years old. I began researching projectors and screens, i am blowing away with the amount of options there are! So my first is what projector to buy. I know are screen size is going to be 120", I 'm going to ceiling mount the...

  4. REW Forum
    Finally got around to doing a full range measurement of my setup with a calibrated Dayton EMM-6. Using antimode at the low end combined with a housecurve done with EQ. Also got three or four moderate, broad EQ bands higher up. The peak at around 600hz appear to be a feature of my B&W 804s...

    So today i started on my two boxes i needed to get done. I had two speakers that i was gonna use in my truck but decided to use them for music in my home and parties. They are Ascendant Audio Havocs, 1250 watt RMS dual 2 ohms. The boxes are just a little under 1 cu ft after bracing and all and...
  7. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I got back to working on my theater again yesterday after a 3 months hiatus. The problem with taking all these breaks and about to hit the 3rd year of the build is I forget a lot of my ideas or plans along the way. I'm about to wire up my IR repeater. I was going to mount the "eye" in the...

  9. New Member Introductions
    I've been reading and "lurking" on audio message boards since about 2003. So, I finally broke the shyness & took the plunge. Take it easy on me please "especially you heavy duty techno audio guru's" :grinning:
  10. Home Theater Design and Construction
    This is the room as it looked when my daughter lived down there. (I hope the pics show up). Notice we closed in the bar to make a walk in closet. Well I have been sheet rocking all week. The ruff walls and the overhead part (hiding the duct work) along with the supports have been sheet rocked...

Here is the info on the room/viewing conditions. Seating Area: 11' wide, 14' long, 9' screen to prime viewing seat Lighting: 3 recessed lighting...

    I am not trying to sell anything but I wanted everyone that I finally found a decent remote for the PC. Its not slow and it just plane works. But first to let you know that dont waste your money on the Logitech diNovo Mini. It is a worthless remote and what a pain it has been with. R key doesnt...
  13. Creative Sound Solutions
    I finally finished my 385L, 14.9 HZ SDX15 Sonosub. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the build process. I will say everything went pretty smoothly, except trying to get the 1/4" screws through the driver holes (stripped quite a few screws). I never did get them to sit all the way...
  14. REW Forum
    OK so I've been plotting everything manually for the last year and I finally decided enough's enough. Got a Behringer UCA-202 soundcard and started reading. Here is my first attempt at the soundcard calibration after about 2 hours of complete and utter futility. It looks good up until 2.00K mark...
  15. REW Forum
    I have been posting on AVSforums about how I made a jump from a Velodyne DLS3750 to a new SVS PC12+. I had great room gain and integration with my Velodyne. With this new PC12 plus, I have been reall dissapointed. This is my first measurement and graph with REW, so let me know if there is...
  16. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hi everyone. I'm finally upgrading my HT to HD. I'm pretty happy with my surround sound for the moment. Do you guys have an recommendations for a 50" tv for a living room? It will be used for games tv and movies, but movies are the most important. The room doesn't have the best light control so...
  17. AV Home Theater
    My man cave is so much cooler now.... I recently did a little side work and made some extra money so I decided to take the plunge and put together a home theater system. Its not the nicest sytem on the planet or anything but I like it and it sounds great. I set it up mostly for watching movies...
  18. REW Forum
    Finally after about 2months of fighting with REW, thanks Brucek. I move the sub around to several places in the room, and found that over all the right front about 2ft from the front of the superchunks and 8inch from the front wall looks the best (smoothest) the others were all over the place...
  19. DIY Speakers
    It only took about 1 1/2 years, it was well worth the wait. The drivers are rs225's, rs150 and a Vifa PL series tweeter. More photos can be found on my web site.

    unfortunately I have to cross at a 90 degree several eletrical lines. I hope this does not cause any hum. There is no other way around it. I am running 12 gauge speaker wire cl3 rated. Anyone ever cross several lines of electrical wire and not have any hum. The electrical wire is in metal...
