    Hello, As a neat solution I am looking at a custom 5 channel power amp to power the front 3 speakers in my setup, and an IB which I will install. The amp would be a 5 x 300 watt power amp. This gives me 2 channels with which to power the IB with. Does anyone have any thoughts as to if they...

    Sub Is already built tho I might need more bracing at some point. What does anyone use to protect front of woofer? Anything cheap affordable. 15” si ht sadly they stopped making affordable woofers.

    I have a Denon AVR-1604 receiver and Definitive center, front, back speakers and a subwoofer. Audio components are a TV, Blu-ray, Amazon fire TV and a Wii. The TV is connected through a TOSLink that splits the HDMI signal into optical/HDMI (no HDMI on receiver). The Blu-ray is connected...

    Until now i have been using only 2 speakers and a sub, that was set up using the subwoofer crossover (reviever -> sub -> frontspeakers), but i just got some new speakers that i want to use in a surround, so that i can get the full experience when watching movies with 5.1 tracks. I thought it...

    I am going to give building an amp a try now. I just ordered a Bang & Olufsen ICEpower 50ASX2 SE 2x50W Class D Amplifier, and a B&O ICEpower 125ASX2 amplifier module. This will give me enough power to power 2 of my new speakers (bi-amped). Iam still looking for one more of each to finish off the...

    Just curious and since I do not know thought I would ask. Hope this makes some sense, as much as I would like to get a new AVR w/atmos is not going to happen anytime soon. My current AVR is a Yamaha RX-A2010 this will handle a 9.2 with Front and Rear ( as Yamaha calls it Presence ) Height...

    Hi There, In my HT I have four SI 18 DS4's in one box along the front center of my room (almost completed build), and have one SI 18 HT in each of the rear corners for a total of 6 subwoofers. I guess my questions are two fold. First, do I need to eq each subwoofer independently of each...

    Here is my front wall trap design. By damping any resonances or reflections involving the front wall, making them decay and die down quickly, bass snappiness is improved, and soundstage and imaging (SS&I) detail are improved. With the two layers of absorptive material and a gap between, max LF...

  16. Home Theater System Recommendations
    It was recently pointed out to me that wide front channels are better than high fronts if the option is one or the other. I see a lot of 7.1 channel receivers that say on the back "surround back/high front" but dont seem to see any for wide front. Is their something specific I can look for to...

    I currently am using a Pioneer Elite VSX-23TXH to power a 5.1 speaker system. The speakers are all DIY and the entire front soundstage has an approximate impedance of 4-ohms (which the receiver is not recommended to drive). I have a Dayton APA150 amplifier I would like to use to to power only...

    I have a pair of JBL homebuilt L-300 front channel speakers for my home theater. The horns give superb dialogue definition. I bought a Klipsch center speaker (a Reference 64 II) that was touted for dialogue clarity. Not so as compared to the JBL's. It was almost $1200 and dialogue was much...
