  1. How do you trim veneer edges on chamfered cabinets?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am in the process of building three subwoofers (a RSS390HO-4, RSS315HF and a rebuild of a dead Polk PSW650). I am thinking of applying maple veneer on at least one box, but I am chamfering the edges of the boxes. How do you trim the veneer on the 45 degree cuts on the edges? I normally use...
  2. Tweaking speaker trim level after Audyssey with DVE Blu-ray

    Audio Processing
    For the most part I've been a set it and forget it Audyssey user, but I'd like to try and experiment. I get the proper mic placement, set speakers to small, set xover (mine are crossed at 80hz) , etc... Here is what I need input on. It seems the HT pink noise tone is generally 75db (-30db FS)...
  3. BFD/AVR/Audyssey trim levels

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I understand that you need to reduce the LFE trim levels in order not max out the BFD inputs, generally accepted to be around -12. I also understand that when setting up Audyssey you want to have amp levels set so that your LFE trim level is within +/- 3. Additionally, altering this trim level...
  4. Slightly OT - Wagner CS and trim painting

    DIY Screens
    I posted this over in the Construction but thought I might be better served in this forum since there are more folks that use the Wagner paint sprayers here than just about anywhere else.:bigsmile: Has anyone had good results with their Wagner sprayers for their intended use? I want to paint...
  5. Painting trim and Wagner sprayers

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    How many of you have a Wagner Control Spray and have used it for oil based paints? I have one and have used it with thinned Latex paints for my HT screens. WE are at a "thought process" stage for redoing our HT and I want to paint the trim a new color. It was originally painted with an oil...
  6. Why -3db trim?

    I was reading the manual and can you tell me why this is necessary to have -3db trim within the receiver?
  7. How do I attach velvet to screen trim without it bulging?

    DIY Screens
    I have a 109" digital grey Screen Goo screen. My friend gave me a free liter of it, with base coat and it makes the Epson 6100 look great, and I haven't even calibrated it yet. Before the velvet curtains go up on the sides, top and bottom, I'd like to frame in the screen using 1x3's wrapped in...
  8. 500K Ohm Mini Trim Potentiometer

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Can I use some of these instead of regular resistors to adjust the high pass filter on a plate amp?
  9. xenyx 802 and the trim knob.

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Perhaps not the right forum, but I had some issues using my ep2500 and my sub as supposedly the line level was not enough from my receiver(-10 dBV instead of +4dbu) so I plugged the sub preout into my 802 and out to the ep2500. There is an input trim knob, however I am not sure where the...
  10. Trim On Box Build??

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So I just finished up painting my very first sub box build. I don't claim to be a pro I'm just a DIY'er who loves taking on new things that are foreign to me. With that said, I was wanting to trim it out with some decorative trim. I started thinking that it maybe a bad idea. I don't want it...
