  1. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hey HT shack, I'm forced to listen in a less than perfect position. The rear wall is only ~4' behind my ears. Usually I would diffuse the area behind me, but since 4' (or even 5') isn't enough distance for effective diffusion, I thought it might be better to use some 8" broadband absorbers...
  2. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I a trying to find wall mounts where the wire feeds through the wall mount and then into the speaker. All of the ones I have found so far mount the speaker but then the wire travels from the wall plate to the back of the speaker. The speakers I have are not large, maybe 4-5" in width. I have...
  3. 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...

    Found this forum and it seems the advice differs quite a lot from what AVS recommends, thought I would post here and see what recommendations you might have. Below is what I posted to AVS yesterday. Since then I was thinking of using the paint recommended by projector central from Sherwin...

    In looking to build a portable studio, I found this video online and am wondering if anyone can help me by giving me some input. I'm in a rather undesirable living environment but have access to a basement where an idea like this could be employed, but I'm not sure how great it is...

  9. General Screen Discussion
    Hi All, I am new to this hobby...I use to be really into flying 3d RC airplanes, but just recently sold everything RC related to invest in a home theater (after seeing my planes sit in the garage collecting dust for over a year because I never have time to fly, I figured it was time to let them...

    Working on framing up my room and I'm not sure about what to do with the wall the screen will be on. There are windows on the wall so I will be framing it up just a few inches to the inside of the windows and they will be blocked off. Guess my question is what do I put on the back side of the...
  13. System Setup and Connection
    I am running a 2.1 system in a rectangular room where the speakers are placed on the long wall and the listening position is against the opposite wall. I'm getting a lot of "boominess" unless I lean forward away from the wall. I'm stuck with the speaker and listening position - will EQ help...

  17. Home Audio Acoustics
    I thought I would ask this because I have not seen it covered before. At what point when moving a trap away from a wall does it not become more effective but lose some of it's effectiveness? Like if I took my monster traps and mounted them on a stand and moved them a foot off the wall vs say...

    How coarse a grit of sandpaper can I go to to smooth down a wall? The wall itself is very flat. Unfortunately, it has had many coats of paint with little or no prepping and as a result is quite bumpy/dimpled. I've been using some 220 grit paper to sand down screw hole patches and it does not...
