  3. Dust cover for ceiling mounted projector

    Home Theater Projectors
    Hi everyone, Is it necessary to cover a ceiling mounted projector when it's off to protect it from dust? I had a wall mounted one (180cm high approx) and the motherboard died as a result of too much dust - at least that's what the repair guy said. Some people say dust settles and won't affect...

    System Setup and Connection
    I leveled a laser pointer in the middle of my screen, and tilted the screen down until the beam was around eye level. Was this a good move, bad move, or doesn't really matter? It's a 60" LED LCD, and the middle of the screen is about 5' from the floor.

  11. T/S Params measurement of mounted loudspeakers

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello Folks, I would measure the Thiele & Small paramenters of my Behringer B1800D-PRO subwoofer without dismounting it. Because the unit is brand new (under warranty) and because it is a 18" woofer that is anyway hard to handle, I would first try to measure the T/S paramenters leaving all in...
