  1. General Screen Discussion
    We just purchased a new home, and I am trying to figure out how to make my old 195" 2.35 aspect fixed AT screen drop down in front of our windows/doors. I would ideally like to have the screen drop down in front of my speakers, but that would mean extending the screen mount out 3' to clear the...
  2. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    This is an experience that has had me frustrated for some time now. Hope it helps some others as well. The problem was streaming Tidal 'Hi-Fi' through my computer. After doing simple test tones I found a huge dip centered at 60hz. Very little sound coming out at this frequency. Most...

    I need some advice. I have a samsung 40 inch led TV I purchased in DEC 2012. when ever I am watching something with light colors on the screen you can see these 4 dots two on top and two on bottom. It looks like it might be some kind of image burn in. I talked to samsung and they send me an...
  4. Manufactured Screens
    I'm about to purchase a projection screen, and trying to decide whether to get an electric or fixed frame. It would be nice to have the screen disappear when not in use, but not totally necessary. My concern is the screen sagging or curling over time. Also, do AT screens look as good as non AT...

    While a REW newbie, I've been making measurements and some progress using EQ. But I am stymied by the fact that REW seems to insist on choosing the frequencies for filters. I have a NAD C390DD all-digital amp (no analog inputs) that includes a rudimentary room equalization capability. It has 6...

    As the title says... wasnt sure where to post this question... seems to be the most suited place to do so... anyways when i turn on my crown xti2000, my room light dims for a second or 2, also when 50-60hz bass plays loud. I guess im pulling too much current? i know little about electric and it...

    I am sure this happens but I would like to know how people are doing it. I would like to put a fixed screen in my HT room but it will cover a front window of the house. Issues: if people do this: Do you build access to window incase it leaks or window breaks? Do you black it out and if so what...

    I just looked at the YouTube's on DIY automated screen masking: I would like to know if anyone has done anything similar that they can share? I'm looking at working on DIY acoustic room treatment project and will be initially focusing on the front wall for the biggest improvement and this...

    How would you guys recommend I get about 5 inches of clearance between my projectors mounting bracket and the wall? using 2 L brackets to create a U bracket and attach the screen mounts to that?

    Kudos to Alan Jordan, creator of DRCDesigner, for giving us a converted/fixed version of his GUI/Front End for Denis Sbragion's DRC (Digital Room Correction), a command-line-interface FIR filter and impulse generator. Here is the download link for the fixed version of DRCDesigner. If you refer...

    I have 8 ft ceilings so I ran this mode program and that gave frequencies of 70/140/280 etc and yes, those frequencies are WAY too loud where I sit in the room (roughly 40% from one wall and a tad off center). So, I made 2' x 2' x 4" mineral wool bass traps and hung 12" from ceiling OVER the...
  13. DIY Screens
    I have a fixed frame screen in my living room now and I'm going to be adding in a 55-60 inch LCD and would like a screen that's easy to get out of the way for normal TV viewing. I believe in my budget a day screen would net a better picture so I'm looking for options. I have a JVC DLA-RS40 and...

    Does anyone have any experience with these? From the webpage information they look very similar to the Elite Screens. Anyone know they compare? I've never seen one up close. A friend of mine has the and Elite screen (white) with last years entry level BenQ (W1000+ I think) and it seems like...

    I just wanted to thank Leonard Caillouet for his posts on repairing convergence circuits. Your guides were most invaluable to me. My 65XWX20B lost the blue horizontal convergence last weekend and I was able to quickly diagnose the issue thanks to his postings. I ordered the X480306 repair kit...

    Okay guys I just purchased my new acer hd5360, I do not currently have a screen for it. So I'm projecting on a wall that is between light brown and tan colored (is textured as well) and I'm very satisfied with how well it looks so far. I do know that any screen is gonna look vastly better than...
