  1. Care Chapel
    I am beside myself with grief as the scheduled hour approaches to euthanize a cherished pet. I wish I could muster the words needed to participate in the new topics I see in the forums, but am fixated on this tear-jerking event. I even feel selfish for posting this considering all the human...
  2. Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    It’s time for a trip down memory lane with our old friend the cassette tape. Just a smidge over 50 years ago, the cassette was introduced at the 1963 Berlin Radio Show. It was met with interest and intrigue, but settled-in as second fiddle to the rather ungainly 8-track tape and the audiophile...
  3. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I'd like to install some speakers in my ceiling, though the ceiling is sloped (see pic) http://imgur.com/JDT5i54 and the ceiling is high. 1. Is it a bad idea for any reason to install speakers in a sloped ceiling? 2. Is there a recommended height limit for the front/rear speakers used in a home...

    Is there anything wrong with putting tower speakers on the TV stands? my TV is actually hung on the wall, speakers are mythos one towers. Thinking about getting a 75" media console and placing the towers on top of the console. Cosmetically I think it might look ok, maybe even better than on the...

    I'm in the final stage of my dedicated HT build - it's roughly a 21'x16' room. I currently have Linacoustic floor to ceiling everywhere except for on the walls to the side of the 2nd-row, where there's Dacron batting above the chair rail. There's also a couple superchunk bass traps in the rear...
  7. System Setup and Connection
    Hey guys, so far you all have been a wonderous amount of knowledge that has gotten me through this, and I thank you. Now, I am putting it all together, and am a little unsure about the best setup. I converted my entire living room into a theater. I took sheetrock, painted them black and...

    Very soon my cousin is going to be handing me some cash to set him up a cheap.. CHEAP 5.1 setup for his apartment. The only real issues I have is picking up a cheap sub, preferably front firing as the downstairs landlord probably wouldn't enjoy a down-firing unit at any time of day. He just...

    Newbie alert. Home Theater Direct (htd.com) has started selling a 10" in-wall subwoofer (HD-IWS10A). I dont really have the skills of a cabinet maker, but we are having some built-ins put in and my wife would like to get rid of the of the floor sub. I am planning on placing the sub in a widow...

    I have my LCR speakers behind my screen, and have some room. I have 4" panels behind the speakers on the front wall, and on the 1st reflections points on the side walls. All four corners are chunked, floor to ceiling. No ceiling or floor treatment. I thought I might try to build a 'box' for...
  13. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I was wondering if it was a good idea or bad idea to sink a sub into a wall? It would be around ear level and roughly 10 feet from couch.and about 4 feet to the side of couch, Reason im asking is because 1.) Wife hates it big takes up room. 2.) The only place that possibly could go is about 18...
  14. Home Audio Speakers
    I have a pair of old Polk monitor 10's that still sound pretty great but one of the drivers is busted and buzzes so I had to disconnect it and one of the tweeters is slightly messed up so it buzzes allot at higher volumes. I listen to mainly music on them, out of that music mainly metal, and I...
  15. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Greetings all, I would like thoughts from folks more experienced in system set-ups than myself. The HT I'm thinking of putting together will be close to $10,000 by my calculation (which may be way off.) Before I plunk down that kind of money, I would like to know if I'm clueless or if I'm in...
