  1. Two Receivers for Vertical Biamping L-C-R

    System Setup and Connection
    I am currently running a 6.1 HT system with a Pioneer Elite VSX-72TXV and am curious about using my Arcam AVR300 as a second amp for the fronts. I’m assuming I would run the preouts to the Arcam, with it in Direct Mode. I’m concerned about possible phase issues, though I’m sure that’s just the...
  2. Retrofit Klipsch LCR

    DIY Speakers
    I have a Klipsch tower speaker system with RF35 towers, RC35 center channel, RS25 surrounds and a RW12 powered subwoofer. I'd like to sell and build a MTM LCR setup but can't find a buyer. I'm thinking of changing the drivers over and going to a dome tweeter to soften things up a little. I can...
  3. 2 way LCR... waveguide design.

    DIY Speakers
    I've been on the search for some time now, for a set of behind the screen LCR main speakers for my home theater. I'm trying to build DIY speakers based on designs suggested by members here. Since this is a HT application, I want to get good off-axis response… BTW, in the name of sound quality...
  4. Figuring out tri-amped LCR speakers

    DIY Speakers
    Hi, First time on this side of the HTS! I am creating a HT with the 3 front speakers DIY using SEOS 24 + BMS 4594ND coaxial + dual Beyma 18P80Nd woofers. For the moment, I will have a go at a triple active digital crossover using the miniDSP 4x10HD [2]. For the moment, since I have learned...
  5. Centers as LCR vs Bookshelves

    Home Audio Speakers
    Getting ready to purchase some new speakers. I don't have a large room so I do not plan on using towers. 80% TV/movies/gaming; 20% music. Not sure what brand yet - considering Chane, SVS, Ascend (and XTZ but their website is horrible) I have been planning on purchasing 3 Center speakers as...
  6. LCR positioning w/AT screen - ear height vs screen height?

    System Setup and Connection
    Greetings from Norway, this is my first post on this very knowledgeable forum! I am building a small dedicated home theater room using the original M&K S150/SS150/MX350 THX speakers, and have some questions about the vertical/horizontal placement of the front LCR speaker array. Some info...
  7. Dtsdig's Curved Elusive (Tux) 1099 LCR Build!

    DIY Speakers
    Hello there HTS'ers, It's been a while since I've built anything aside from a quick and easy DIYsoundgroup Volt-10 surround build using flat packs. Those have been in place as my temporary front speakers since I sold my entire Polk Audio setup earlier this year. I want my entire system to be...
  8. Triad Gold LCR / Silver or Bronze Surround

    Classifieds - Wanted
    Could make in-room, in-wall, or on-wall work -- as long as they are not the ones with the wave guide (ie, more than 10 years old). For the surrounds, in-wall or on-wall is okay.
  9. Yamaha DSP-A1 Amplification on L-C-R Channels

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I bought a Yamaha DSP-A1 when it first came out and it provided years of home theater enjoyment. About 4 years ago, I bought larger L-C-R speakers and I began to use the DSP-A1 as a preamp for those 3 channels. The preamp outputs for L-C-R were connected to larger external amps while the...

  12. Looking for a LCR project

    DIY Speakers
    This system will be a home theater workhorse and I will require something that can keep up with a single SI-18 HT subwoofer fed with 300W plate amp for now, upgrading to a crown or behringer amp and minidsp for EQ as funds allow. The room is half of a basement which is closed off with a door...
  13. Bookshelf LCR Comparison

    Home Audio Speakers
    I am looking at upgrading my bookshelf speakers that sit atop my sealed sonotube bass bins and looking at available offerings I began to wonder how much difference there was in sound between the Arx A1b bookshelves/A2c center and the Carnegie Acoustics CSB-1 bookshelves/CSC-1 center, and just...
  14. Need small LCR speakers

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hi guys, My wife threw me a curve ball and I'm considering my options here on how to proceed. We have a family room mini-theater. In ceiling surrounds. Pre-wired for LCR across the front for on-wall mounting. I was going to DIY a single driver 3" speaker from Zaph audio (the B3S design), but...
  15. LCR meter recommendations?

    DIY Speakers
    My next speaker project has me needing to unwind an inductor to get the proper value. Despite all my fancy test equipment at work, we never work with inductors, so we don't have one. I figured this was a good time to get one. I've seen prices from $40 to $300. What are you guys using and...

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I am trying to figure out the best way to install my Triad Gold Speakers. I am doing a 7.1 and have the brackets for the rear Silvers, which will go on the ceiling or rear wall, but I do not have brackets or stands for the 5 other speakers. Any ideas on best way to have them setup, wall...
  17. In wall / on wall LCR Recommendations

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hi all I'm planning an AT screen and need to save as much space as I can so I plan to use inwall or thin on wall speakers. I also plan to backlight the screen to show off the speakers (since my first IMAX show i've always thought that is a cool effect) So I need speakers that don't have...
  18. Running full range LCR

    DIY Speakers
    I was curious how many people were running their LCRs are full range? (ie, not passing 80hz and below to subs for LCR). I'm working on my LCRs (to be crossed at 80) - but was curious how many run full range? I'm going to use 3 2x4 MiniDSPs for my LCRs, and only using 3 of the 4 outputs, so I...
  19. CHT HT Build Thread - PRO-10 based LCR

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I thought I had run out of rooms or relatives to buy CHT speakers for. I was cleaning the garage out in preparation for the ice age and thought about replacing my garage speakers with some PRO-10's to bump it up a little...but I wouldn't use those in the winter. Then, I was walking around the...
