  1. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hi all, hopefully someone can give us some good advice because we're really struggling to find a suitable solution here. Apologies in advance for the long post. We have virtually finished our home cinema (we're in the UK, so that's why I didn't call it a home theater :bigsmile:) It's small -...
  2. DIY Speakers
    I'm a newbie to building speakers. (other than subs) I have ordered a copy of the Loudspeaker Design Cookbook, and will be educating myself from there. In the meantime, I would like to pose several questions here. First off, I have been researching a build for a high quality wall mount...
  3. Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I have two vga monitors, and no money to buy a new one. I have a computer with an asus M2A - which has video out of vga, dvi-d, and hdmi. I've done a little research and found that vga to dvi-d 'adapters' cost upwards of $200, so I won't be going that route. I found an adapter that is female...

  6. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hello all! :bigsmile: Im sure that as time goes on, I will ask more important and technical questions, but to start, I figured I'd keep it light. I thought it might be fun to hear what others think....(ahem, please be nice, haha. If you think its lame, just pass us by. Thanks.) Anyway, I want...
  7. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hi, I have ordered a Sunfire CRM-2 5-channel set and I want to add 1 or 2 subwoofers to it. I have pretty much decided to get the JL Audio Fathom series (mainly because of WAF) but am undecided which one(s)? What would better integrate with the Sunfire's, a single f112, a single f113 or dual...
  8. Home Audio Speakers
    My wife told me to clean out the DefTech B2000's and find something that doesn't dominate the room (size wise). I want good sound and willing to pay for it (within reason). Music 60%, Video 40%. Told wife I'll need a sub, center and surround. Power will come from Anthem MCA50, preamp Anthem...

  11. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hi all. I have a slightly odd room layout where my TV and electronics are mounted roughly at a 45 degree angle in the corner of the room. (see attached sketch) The nice thing about this layout is that it gives me an obvious corner location for a subwoofer as part of a 7.1 setup without...

  13. Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    i I would appreciate some wisdom as to how this amp might perform with a 4-5 cu ft box tuned to 16-18 Hz using a PE 12" Titanic driver (kind of a SVS NSD-12 clone). Will listen to music, HT and some low Church organ stuff. Basement room is 50' X 12' X 7.5 '...
