I'll be rebuilding my basement theater in a few months - it had to be demolished to fix a structural problem in my basement, and I'm going to dual subs in the process. (My new AVR is supposed to be able to correct each sub independently, in addition to decoding Atmos and DTS:X.)
I've read about...
I run a HTPC with bitstream output on HDMI. My old receiver (onkyo 606) takes TrueHD on 7.1 channels.
If / when I want to bitstream Atmos, Should I reposition my speakers to a 5.1.2 setup, or shall I still use the 7.1 setup?
I have understood that Atmos is using the TrueHD on a 7.1 setup...
Hello all, I am currently waiting for my new home to be built. This is the first time I will have a dedicated media room. Not really sure where to start. Attached is the layout of the room. It has what I assume is a false wall for storage, but not sure how I would put equipment back there and...
In our home theater room, I can't change the furniture, nor the placement of the seats. I can't put any room treatment neither on walls nore on the ceiling. Guess why? Ok you know.
I am a molusk.
Now I can put my only sub ( no, I can't have a second one ) in 2 place only.
Running REW 5.17 beta 7 for multiple instances on a Windows 7 desktop machine and after a couple of operations of any kind the display just goes whacko, jumping all over the place, completely unusable. I have a feeling I am not the original discoverer of this problem, but I missed any posts...
So my dad is not a crazy audio nut like myself or his brother is. He has a simple $1k bose system right now that he is happy with. But he is talking now about changing up a few rooms upstairs to accommodate a dedicated movie room. He does want to spend a small amount on the audio just to give...
I am slowly working on creating my ultimate listening room, and in doing so one of the things I need to do is acoustically treat it. I really want to get the most out of my system and know this is a path I need to go down.
Currently, I have some treatments in the room but it's not...
I was introduced to REW last week and last 4 day I did nothing but watched all the youtube videos and read the REW’s user manual blogs.
Then I ordered

Hoping to fill out my system right now the core pieces are Focal 918 tower and a B&W PV1D...receiver is dated and the next part to get upgraded.
Hi, I'm new here!
I know a little about some things and a lot about nothing. I'm a self educated audio guy, and until May of 2015 owned and operated a DIY recording studio/venue in South Florida called TheTalentFarm. We hosted up and coming bands from all over the US and every once in a...
Let me catch you all up to speed with my build. I've been stock piling materials for several weeks now and am slowly making progress on the framing.
My first theater design was in 2009 for a new home I had designed (architect by trade), but we didn't build it. Fast forward 3 years, bought a...

I am moving to California, Sacramento area, here in about a month, and I was wondering what your opinions are on where to mount the projector(Epson 9700UB), and where to put the surround sound speakers. Here is a picture of the wall where I will put the screen.
I have a new screen hung on the wall, I used Ash for the frame, and now I need a border for it. I am wondering what options there are that exist that I can put up for cheap. I am planning on wrapping whatever the material is in a velvet like material. I am debating on whether to get a wooden...
Hey everyone. I found this great place in Canada that sells all kinds of stuff just like monoprice. Cable sales Canada Once you factor in the shipping costs from monoprice over the boarder these guys are cheaper.
I am planning our new subwoofer for the new house. I have not decided on a LLT or infinite baffle but this thread is limited to the manifold design. I also have not decided on the drivers. I may either use the two Titanic 12's in my closet or purchase 4-8 Mach 5 IXL 18.4's. It just...
I live in Texas and the weather here in winter can drop to the twenties and summer it can be as hot as 110. If I get an hd tv and put it outside on a covered patio will the weather damage it? I looked into all weather outdoor tvs but are too expensive.
