  1. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I plan on running them in two separate 3 cubic foot enclosures, down firing. The room is about 20x25 and is an open living room / kitchen area. I plan on running them each off a channel of a Sunfire Cinema Grand so each one will be getting [email protected] I'll be using Audyssey XT32 to EQ them...
  2. Home Theater Projectors
    Just bought a home and not really too experienced with projector screens (have a 65 inch flat screen in home now) Best Buy Magnolia came over today to take a look and they did not recommend it due to the fact the ceilings were so low but recommended an 80 inch TV. Reason being is that if...

  4. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have read so much I can't figure it out. I have Winisd, and I enter all the stuff. I see the box it suggests, but then I look at real projects and none of the enclosures look like what Winisd or any of the plans online look like. Finally, I keep reading about making a 2-4^3 box. Can I just...
  5. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Back to the Future had what many of us remember as a inspiration to current projects. Check out the 6 foot driver that lives in a 8'x8'x2' (128 cubic feet!) cabinet/box consists of 2" x 4" studs covered with chip board with a single 4" port. powered by a a 20kW PWM voltage sourced inverter...
  6. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I have a 600SQ 3 season room and I need a home theater. My son DJ's so I need a system to pound. I heard definitive BP8060's and to be honest I was not that impressed. Up top you lost the bass and the center which was high tone took over. I am looking for something to pound this room. Open to...
  7. System Setup and Connection
    Hi I am trying to help out the Minister in my church connect the video projector to her laptop. Ideally the projector will be in a ceiling mount (12 ft up) and the laptop on the pulpit (needs over 70 feet of cable to join the two). Seems to work OK except that the power point image blinks off...
  8. General Screen Discussion
    I had a quick question about calculating foot lamberts for a 2:35:1 aspect ratio screen when an anamorphic lens is not used. When calculating foot lamberts for a 2.35:1 aspect ratio screen, do I use the screen area or do I have take into account the black bars? I do not plan on using an...
  9. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I received an email from Yamaha about their new AVR's (AVENTAGE)... they're talking about a 5th foot added to the receiver (see here ...) this is what they say in their website: Specially designed 5th Foot The Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T. Wedge) design improves structural rigidity and...
  10. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am looking for a sub design that will be one cubic foot outside dimensions. I realize that it won't play exceptionally low, but it is for a relative who won't tolerate a big box. I would like whatever bass it produces to be quality bass, not mud. Any ideas?
  11. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I have a house I am going to be wiring in the near future that is 22 ft long, 15ft 10 in wide and has 12 foot ceilings in it. The screen will be mounted over a fireplace in the center of the room at one end of the room. There is an opening into the Kitchen of roughly 10 ft to the right side of...
  12. Home Audio Speakers
    I have been asked to install a home theater system in a room with a 14 foot ceiling. With a room that tall, where would be the best place to install the speakers? Would it be better to have floor standing speakers, or in ceiling of in wall speakers?
  13. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Here are some build pics from the build I did. I'll have to update them because I've since painted the inside of the ports red, and cleaned them up to not look dusty lol. Each box with driver is 220lbs and I can max out my spl meter with over 126db + at seating pos. Everyone that has heard them...
  14. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have two 3 cubic foot sealed enclosures. One has a Tumult II. The other is empty. (No missile silos for me :innocent:) Anyone have a Tumult in excellent condition they want to sell? If not, what US made driver would you guys recommend to go with the Tumult. I am using a BFD, a BASSIS...
  15. REW Forum
    Nobody would ever believe it when I said how powerful my 16-46 PCI was. So I just ran REW through it straight off the soundcard. No speakers or EQ. Shack old analogue meter correction file loaded. Despite the massive natural house curve it never sounded bottom heavy and is very easy to...
