    So the folks are looking at TVs now and they (my Dad rather) have some odd demands. They have this entertainment center.

    After taking a closer look on Klipsch, I'd really like to build my own speakers with efficiency over 95db/1w, but can't find any kits or suggestions... Klipsch is really overpriced here in Norway, RF82 cost 1850 US dollars.. My goal is a speaker not (much) bigger than the rf82, but as loud and...

  11. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am hoping there is someone who has built a sub with the TC-2000 12" DVC who could give me some advice on enclosure and port size. I cannot do a sonotube and a LLT is not something I am too interested in right now as I would just like response in the low 20's. I do have 2 of the TC-2000's 12"...

    Here is my living room/dinning room where my home theater lives. Without making it look like a recording studio, (panels in ceiling wall corners and on the ceiling) what can be done to improve the acoustics? With that limitation, would the benefit of adding some bass traps and panels not be...
