    Hi Friends : 1) What is the ideal cut off frequency of floor standing speakers (Tower speakers ) when used in movie mode is it okay to let them run all the way down to 20 Hz or follow the THX standards and cut them off at 80Hz and set the subwoofer cut off at 90Hz . Basically to avoid damaging...

    I am considering in wall speakers for my theater room. I have seen many great in wall speakers that sound amazing, but I'm still skeptical. Are floor standing or on wall still superior? I'm looking for experience with or opinions on in wall speakers.

    I'm going to be setting up a new living room home theatre and the speakers I'm hoping to get are the Pioneer SP-FS52 floor standing speakers. Since buying the smaller speakers (SP-BS22) with stands for the back surround is the same price as the towers, I will have 4 floor standing speakers in...

    I went and checked out a bunch of new speakers and settled with the Paradigm Monitor 7 floor speakers and I wanted go with their Monitor 1 center speaker. The problem I have is the speaker is still a bit too big for my setup. I would need to mount my 59" Plasma on the wall or get a whole new tv...

What additional steps do I need to take too get rid of the standing waves and how can I tell where they are coming from? I have 2 Auralex...
  11. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I built a ported box for an old subwoofer I have laying around, for garage duty. The inside dimensions are 21.5" x 18.5" x 12". I stuck my head through the opening to see what it sounds like in there, and I heard a mix of mid and low standing waves. I stuck my phone inside with an RTA app...

    As the title suggests I am looking for a 5.1 Surround Sound setup, due to my media collection growing and a need for the sound to better match my viewing experience. Though I do not have a particular budget in mind, I am not looking for audiophile quality speakers just something to improve on TV...

  16. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I was just reviewing other sub designs and looking at slotted port sub boxes like my Velodyne and I was thinking of how people usually have to compromise between musical performance and home theater performance. So what if there was an easy way to switch between them with a way to change or even...

    I am trying to optimize the sound in my family room. With my large subwoofer in the only WAF-friendly location, I found a large cancellation at around 40Hz in my listening position. I was able to compensate for this by integrating a second small sub next to the center channel and applying a...

    In the copious measurements I made for the NeptuneEQ review I'm writing (should be up by the end of this week), I re-noticed an acoustics problem that I never did quite fix. I have standing waves at 30 Hz (axial) and 100 hz (horizontal). Now my listening position is not in the dead center of...

    I'm curious how a window behaves acoustically at the lower frequencies (say 200hz and lower)? I've been "allowed" to convert an upstairs room into a music/ht room. The room is basically a 14.5' x 17.5' foot rectangle box (8 foot ceiling) with the end behind the listening area containing a...
