    Hello everyone! My wife thinks I'm nuts, lets hear what the forum has to say!>:) I'm getting ready to finish our basement (approx 670 Sq.ft) and will be turning it in to a multi use room (I know, I know but I have kids and a wife to answer to so no dedicated theater space unfortunately). What...
  2. I have no idea what I'm doing

    System Setup and Connection
    I just moved into a new house with four built in speakers. 2 in the front wall and 2 in the ceiling behind the couch. I imagine these are setup for some sort of surround sound system. I'm not looking for anything fancy, I'd be fine with a mono channel setup as long as I could get sound coming...
  3. Bad idea to connect both sub pre-out and front speaker out to subwoofer?

    System Setup and Connection
    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...
  4. Loking to Install projector in basement with 7 foot ceilings but Best Buy said not a good idea

    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...
  5. Replacing my dead 63" plasma, looking for input on my idea...

    System Setup and Connection
    Going with a 75" Samsung LED, 1080p. The 63 fit perfectly and going with a bigger screen I am going to have to have a mount that will allow me to move it out to access the attic door. The shelf you see was built to house amplifiers and to provide a resting spot for the TV, as I had the Samsung...

    REW Forum
    Hi, I'm pretty satisfied with my adjustments to my setup following this thread here; however, I have a single dip at approx. 30 Hz I'm considering curing using the boost function in REW. I know that boosting is not considered an ideal solution since it'll lower my headroom, but will it really...

  11. Excellent floor diffusion idea

    Home Audio Acoustics
    From what I hear the floor space is a very important area of treatment where diffusion works great on but unless it's dedicated space you cannot just have the floors lined with diffusion material so this is my work around. Ottomans! So... I'll build 2x2 2d style diffusors and will build an...

  17. Crazy speaker audition idea?

    Home Audio Speakers
    What if we tried this? You would like to upgrade your main speakers, why not take them with you to your local retailer. Audition the speakers you would like to upgrade to, then ask to swap your speakers into the exact spot your new favorites occupied. It eliminates room acoustics and system...
  18. I had an idea....

    Two Channel Audio
    I see cable lifters and spikes and a variety of other tweaks on the market and they are always priced well above what they should be in my opinion. In addition to that, only half of the audiophile crowd is even interested in purchasing them. I believe this is because they are marketed poorly...
