    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    hey guy's, I'm looking into a grafik eye for my ht room. I will have 3 zones of lighting and would like one extra zone for future expansion. My question is which lutron system do i require? the GRX 3000 series or the QS series. From reading i think both will work for my needs, but was...
  2. Two side surround pairs rather than one?

    System Setup and Connection
    I currently employ two side surround pairs, splitting the side surround output from my pre/pro to two power amplifiers and four speakers. One pair is midway between the front/center location and my seating position, the other slightly behind the listening position. The frontmost are bipoles, the...

  4. High Pass Filter option when my amp doesn't have one?

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    I'm just about to start a build on a little 8" ported sub, basically using stuff I've already got laying around. The scavenged plate amp I'm using was originally designed for a sealed sub, so I'm almost positive it doesn't have a high pass filter. I know a filter would be a good idea, especially...
  5. Why does port length increase when two ports replace one?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    As per title, Just wondering why two ports are required to be longer than a single port? For instance if I tune a cab with a single 10" port, but the port velocity is too high and I add another port, these ports are then required to be 22.5" long each?
  6. Purchasing a used EQ unit and which one?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I'm looking at purchasing a used DSP1124P. I'm finding some great options used but I'm wondering how concerned I should be with purchasing these items used? I know that to some extent buying any item used is a concern but there us a HUGE difference in how fragile/vulnerable items are. I would...
  7. Dual good subs vs one great one?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I have been going round and round on this for months now. I currently have a PB10NSD. Since my room is pretty small (1450 cubic feet) and sealed, it performs well. I can get to about -15dB below reference before any sort of compression sets in. I normally listen at -17dB or -16dB below...
  8. Which one?

    Home Theater Projectors
    I have just bought a new home and I am finishing the basement and I was thinking about putting a projector instead of a regular TV. I am not that familar w/projectors, I just know a 10 x 10 wall/screen is the size to use. I am willing to spend upto 5k, but trying to shoot for lower. Also, can...
  9. Two lower subs or one better one?

    Any opinions on which would be better in terms of SPL output even sound throughout the room low distortion at high levels My cost are about the same for both options. However, I do not have the money for these two options. I will have the money for one PB-NSD in about 3 to 4 months and I...
  10. Any thought on this one?

    Home Audio Speakers
    I am considering swapping out my existing system for an active monitor system... 5.1 to start with. Does anyone have any good reasons (besides power outlets) why this would not be a good idea? Thanks :nerd:
  11. Audio Alchemy OM-150: Do You Have One?

    Two Channel Audio
    I have a question. Does the amp hiss when the preamp power is turned off, or when there is no RCA connected to the input of the amplifier? Thanks!
  12. Receiver - same price - which one?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Yamaha HTR-6160 versus Onkyo TX-SR606 I note the Yamaha has pre outs which could come in handy down the line. Which would you get? they are the same price here this weekend, $499 CAN. Thanks :rubeyes:
