    In the quest to get my new HT designs finalized, I am looking at all aspects, one at a time, and it's speaker time. I have LCR and 1 sub taken care of already, and I am (of course) going to match my one sub with a twin brother to balance things out, and this leaves the side and rear surrounds...

    I am piecing together my HT and have descent front, center and sub but no side or rear speakers for a 7.1 setup. The room is 25' x 13'. How do I pick good side and rear speakers? Their is a deal on Woot for JBL LS326W. Thoughts?
  6. System Setup and Connection
    Hello! My front speakers are at around 8 feet away from my seating. So are the back surrounds while the sides are at 6' away. I have been thinking on pushing the mains closer to the screen then adding "wides" to fill the gap and for smoother transitions of the soundstage. My idea is to get the...
  7. System Setup and Connection
    So I wanted to do in wall everything. I got the L and R speakers done and they worked well with stud location, but my center channel.. not so much. Stud is dead center! So, I'm curious... Could I just purchase another in-wall center channel and put them side by side with no ill effect? All...

    I thought I would seek some advice on a fun little project that I am about to undertake. Way back in the late 70's I did what I could to have as good a stereo as I could afford. After college I picked up a Nakamichi BX 125 Cassette deck and Technics Turntable-powered by an A1000 Yamaha amp. I...
  9. Home Theater Projectors
    It's been five years, technology has moved on. When last I bought a projector, the landscape was different. I figured, I'll just call up AVS and order a 4910. But though they ship from the east coast, they charge tax in CA, so there is a three hundred dollar premium for buying from them...

  12. System Setup and Connection
    Anyone know if this will work? I previously gave up on the idea of achieving 7.1 in my living room due to the fact im only about 3 feet from the rear wall and cannot get a sufficient distance between the side and rear surrounds to have any real benefits. However I have recently visited a high...

  16. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    What are the advantages or disadvantages of having a dual driver enclosure with dual opposed or 2 drivers side by side? I have an enclosure (7ft3) that with some slight alterations is ready for side by side implementation. Thinking about 2 Sundown Sa-15's.

    I am trying to determine how wide my trim needs to be on the side walls - is there a standard / suggested thickness for 703 on side walls to treat reflection points? If so, does it adhere right to the wall or should a gap be left between the wall and the 703? Thanks! Joe

    Need driver recommendation: Project is a small side table that needs to fill below my mains (Zaph B3S single driver). Not a particularly high output project, but small is the name of the game. Not looking for 20 Hz, just some general listening and movie watching. Sadly I have an old NHT1259...

    Recently noticed the blank screen and side bars (including when picture is framed ratio) of our Sony KDF-46E2000 are dark blue instead of the normal black! With that said the picture is beautiful, sharp and colors are vibrant. Blacks are true black. Picture setting is default standard. What...
