  1. AV Home Theater
    Hi guys, I was planning for a home theater set-up. Due to space constraints I am planning to go with MartinLogan Motion SLM-XL as L/C/R set up for the speakers. I would really appreciate suggestions on a suitable AVR & Subwoofer. Current ones which I am inclining towards are SVS SB2000...
  2. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Okay so after much hopefully useful cerebral activity, I have decided am going to do another pair of floor standing subs almost identical to the ones I did and posted on this thread in another forum...
  3. AV Home Theater
    I've had my Home Theater torn apart for a number of weeks ... reviewing a pair of KILLER speakers (hmmm... you'll find out soon enough :) ) ... so movies are on the back burner at the moment. I received 13 Hrs. in the mail this week...can't wait to let it loose once I piece things back...
  4. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I was recently able to just squeak in to a group buy for a pair of Mach 5 UXL 18s, and I jumped on it before I had a chance to do much research or planning. I took enough time to assure myself that the price was right, and that they were still solid performers, and the local Canadian source (no...
  5. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Ok here's the story: We are building a house this spring. In the basement we will have our kids bedrooms, but the middle of the basement is a 15x20 rec room. That room will become a theater in about 5 years once our kids get a little older. Only issue is my wife really wants the room...
  6. Home Theater System Recommendations
    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...
  7. AV Home Theater
    I just got over the upgrade bug and finished the year off with a 60" LG 4K UF7700 New Klipsch fronts and center plus Sub and Yamaha Receiver. I am currently looking at new entertainment shelves as mine is a little long in the tooth for recent upgrades. Curious to see what others are planning to...
  8. IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'm thinking of an IB system in the floor of my theater. My theater room is small, 15.5 x 8.5 x 10 ft. Basement room below is 27 x 8 x 8, it does have a varying amount of stuff in it. So not all the cf are present. This seems like a good candidate for IB? How many drivers/power would I...
  9. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Good morning folks I'm building a new home and have choosen not to finish my basement. I am going to incorperate a home theater in the basement once I haveit finished. The size of the room will be 27ft long 16 ft wide with 8 ft ceilings. My questions are what screen size is decent for this size...
  10. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Built the Statement Monitors and love them and now I am going to build a sub. I only have room for one and it will be put in the corner behind my tv. I am planning on going with the SI 18 HT in a sonotube for ease of the build, moving it, and the enclosure needs to be tall. I'm a noob when it...
  11. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hey guys, I am currently building a new house in which I have factored in a theatre room (forgive me, I am Australian so we measure in meters) 6m long x 4.5m wide. I would like to run two rows of seating if possible, just not sure if the room would be sizeable for that. I have just purchased a...

    How far is your seating from the back wall?
  13. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I have a 16 wide x 18 long room. Its open on the back to the kitchen. I have a eD A2-300. It just cant deliver as much due to the open nature of the space. I am looking at 2 options for sub(s) and 2 for amps. I wanted thoughts on them and I am open to suggestions. I am trying to get the best...
  14. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I know this is probably a basic question but... Can someone tell me if I understand this correctly? I was looking at SVS PC12-NSD for $749 shipped. I thought I could probably build one cheaper and as good if not better. So I like the look of a cylinder sub, it fits my space the best. A box...
  15. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I see that Emotiva is taking pre-orders on their new AV preamp. The features look very impressive and it is made in the USA which is a nice bonus. They are using Dirac live 7.2 for room correction, this is something I am unfamiliar with and have not been able to find any real reviews of the...
  16. Reviewers Private Forum
    A few early thoughts... Per Sonnie's suggestion, I am leaning toward changing from 12th-oct to 6th-oct smoothing on published curves in review/summary posts. I fussed & whined a little, then remembered that Sonnie has about 5,000x the business sense that I do (more like approaching infinity...
  17. Reviewers Private Forum
    I did not see one of these started yet, so here goes. A few thoughts from discussions over the weekend: Joe has some favorite tracks that are MP3s, and no lossless source. We definitely should be working with WAVs or FLACs that have never been through a "lossy" generation as our source...

  19. Manufactured Screens
    My dedicated theater room is coming together. Admittedly I hastily started buying equipment when my wife green lighted the project. I feared she would change her mind and find another project around the house that "needed" the funds more. LOL! For some reason I was under the impression that the...
  20. Home Audio Acoustics
    My front speakers are very close to the side wall. I plan to place 2inch or 4inch compressed fiberglass (2feet x 4feet) panels on both side walls. Is it good practice to place panel just next to speaker on side wall? Is it advised to use 2 inch or 4inch panels? If I need to place on the...
