  1. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Well they don't make it themselves but it is designed by them and the manufacturing is outsourced, but I think its about time they market one for themselves. I've been a fan of there woofers ever since building a few designs with them...
  2. Home Theater Systems | Equipment
    For years I have wanted to move into the home theater realm and finally got my chance this year. I have been trying to bargain hunt to get my equipment and have realized that there are some incredible deals if you are willing to work and wait patiently (or be very lucky) 50” Plasma – Panasonic...
  3. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    About four months ago I built a test box(23.5" cubed-sealed) for my new Tempest-X and EP2500. Then I broke my wrist and was casted. Just after getting my cast off I was jumped and robbed and broke two ribs. I am finally in good enough shape to build my ported enclosure. Want to use .75" MDF...
  4. Home Audio Acoustics
    I finally replaced my broken camera so here are a few pics showing how I placed my GIK 244 traps in a 18.9'x13.3'x7.3' room. It's going to be quite a while before I'm setup to properly measure the room but any ideas based on the pics would be welcome. Edit: Just wanted to note that...
  5. Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Well, I finally got off my **** and ordered a GIZMO!!! :toilet: I want to thank Ray for helping me out when I called earlier today. :jiggy: This baby is going to drive some old advents until I get some more $$ set aside to buy some better speakers. I'll keep everyone posted on how the GIZMO...
  6. REW Forum
    First off let me say that this is a great program and the fact that it is free is awesome! Thanks John! Here is my first couple of graphs taken at the main 2 listening positions. I have a few more listening positions to graph soon (it's a living room HT) but I hope they turn out close to the...
  7. DIY Speakers
    Hey peeps. A while back I asked for some advice about a Zaph's 2.5 Scan Speak Revelator (ZRT) design here in the forum. Well I've finally finished them so I wanted to post the few pictures I took during the build. I should take more pictures when I do stuff like this but I never seem to get...

  10. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    OK… so I’ve been researching the web and reading the forum for three weeks now (just joined last week though) and I think I’m ready to ask for help. I’m looking to update the subwoofer in my HTS and I need help picking a driver and advice on an enclosure type. Thanks to everyone in advance who...
  11. REW Forum
    So, I finally got the chance to play with REW and I must say that it's quite astonishing, what it's capabilities are. My system is pretty primitive. I've had it since I was 17. I'm now 27. It's an old JBL home theater system (JCS1). I simply use it as a 2-channel system. The original...

  13. REW Forum
    I just started using REW to measure my room frequency response; but I made a small mistake :duh: ... I didn't check the C weigh box on the setup neither I downloaded the RS.cal file to compensate the results ... :sweat: I downloaded the file this morning, but I think it will not change the...
  14. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Well, fellow Shacksters, I've finally ponied up and ordered an HDTV. :spend: Welcome to the 90s, right? Ha ha! :yay: It's a Sony 50" A3000. It may be one of the last of its kind. Sony is getting out of the rear projection racket. It seems odd, considering they make some of the finest...

    I finally got around to finishing my "superchunk" style corner traps:
  16. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I completed this theater in october and had trouble putting pics of it on here. I've got it figured out now. It took about 2 mos. to finish basically as the funds were available. I decided to go with a Scarface theme since I have a big painting and a bunch of pictures from the movie from the...
  17. System Setup and Connection
    I apologize in advance if this is not the correct area to post this query; I considered putting it under "Newbie" but was not sure if that was ideal either, so if this is not the suitable area for the questions (moderators) or another member please feel free to move it or point me in the right...
  18. New Member Introductions
    Well, here I am. I read the rules and all that. If I mess up, I didn't mean to. :innocent: I guess since you opened this, you want to know a little about me? Ok, here's a super short bio I guess. I just recently turned fifteen and I'm from Missouri. When I was six, I was on the internet...
  19. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    ok all, finally bit the bullet and found a bit of a deal at Autobarn, picked up two 15" inch US Audio subs, both in their own carpeted enclosures. They sound pretty awsome, but they are as good with bassy music as they are with Pro logic sound tracks. After reading a lot on the forum, it appears...
  20. AV Home Theater
    Hey everyone, As many of you know I'm still a noob when it comes to Home Theater, but recently I've been reading a ton of stuff on reciever settings, dolby, sub and mains balance, and how it compares with my equipment, I still do not have REW set up allthough I am building a PC I have had laying...
