  2. Home Theater Projectors
    Hello everyone, the more I read the more I realize I don't know too much about projectors. I started researching a few days ago and picked a Epson 5030UB as my choice. But I would like some opinions on what I should really get. If it's still the 5030UB than that is fine. Here are my specs...
  3. AV Home Theater
    This is my first plasma and need some advice. Have you every come across static on a radio created by a plasma? Every once in a while my wife likes to go into the bedroom and listen to her radio. When I owned an LED no problem, no static. After installing Samsung's F8500, the TV causes...

    "This is not necessarily the truth, this is what Wittgenstein would have called an exercise in searching for that which is true enough." -Terence McKenna seems pretty applicable.

  6. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Good evening, i finished building my sub about 3 weeks ago. It is connected bridge mode to an EP-4000 , i was testing it and with gain at loudest point i am registering only 89 DB . I would have thought it would have been louder especially with 1000 watts of power. My room is 13.6 long X 10.4...
  7. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    are running them as "Small" vs. "Large" even when both are crossed over to 80hz for THX style listening??? I have always run them as "Large" even though I still cross them over at 80hz and they are tuned to 32hz. I was playing with the settings at lunch while wasting time at home and switched...
  8. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hi all, I am planning to buy my first home theater, so I am thinking about HK AVR 3600 + HKTS 60. What do you think about their performance in term of sound, durability and quality? do you recommend the AVR 3600 over AVR 2600? who are the direct competitors and how do you rate them? Is HK set...
  9. DIY Speakers
    I try to read as much as possible before I ask questions and in my readings, looking for two mains that can reproduce the whole spectrum I came across a good read. http://www.audioheritage.org/intro.htm Is the main web page but I really enjoyed the reading about Daniel's set up...
  10. Home Audio Acoustics
    It would be great if Bryan or others in the know would check it: The Front wall, ipsilateral side wall, and floor will all cause big issues. The contralateral wall, ceiling, and possibly even the rear wall could also come into play in a small room I imagine. As the distance gets further, the...

    Just what the title says! I saw the description of this section of the forum and thought I'd do what it asks! I'm Bobby. I'm currently a First Class Cadet at the Air Force Academy. I'm a bit of an audiophile and tech junkie. My current setup is about as DYI as they come: AIWA NSX-V70...
  12. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I don't know if this belongs here, but I think it would. When the Mythbusters first did the Brown Note myth, the tech guy that they had come in used Pro Audio "subwoofers". You all know that these woofers have a resonance frequency of something around 40hz. The Pro Audio speakers have a linear...
  13. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hi, Im new here and have read many of the threads regarding receivers and speakers so as not to ask duplicate questions. I appreciate all the advice and finally came to a decision that the Onkyo 706 or 876 coupled with the SVS SBS-01 speaker package would be a great choice for my samsung 50"...

    I am considering swapping out my existing system for an active monitor system... 5.1 to start with. Does anyone have any good reasons (besides power outlets) why this would not be a good idea? Thanks :nerd:

    Being a member of other forums for a bit, I haven't played in a while, and now my HT interests are peaking a little again.. especially with a tentative sub build. So long story short, lurking on here for some time, and finally decided to show up. So thanks! Bill

  19. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi everyone. I built my subwoofer following a design I found on the net - before I found this forum... Anyhow, the sub uses a 12" Peerless XLS driver and 2x 12" Peerless passive radiators in a 50 litre box tuned to 20hz (I think). However, I have two problems: 1. Having measured room FR with...

    Hello all i am new to this forum and new to DIY. Right now i have 2 Velodyne 12" sub, they are more of a music sub and not a HT sub. The room that i have my theater set up in is used 100% for Movies. I have been looking into an SVS for about 6 months now but they figured, its just a cylinder...
