I'm an audio engineer with 25+ years experience high speed duplicating audio cassete tapes, now going to waste as I manage the infrastructure of what has turned into a huge call center.

I love my home theater, updated many times over the years.

My current setup includes a 50" Pioneer Kuro plasma TV, Denon 4803ci receiver, Def Tech Supertowers in the front, Mythos 10 center, Mythos Gem XLs in the rear, Sunfire D-12 sub, Squeezebox, Toshia HD DVD, WII, Sony 200 CD carousel, DirecTV HD DVR x2, Sony DVD w/SACD, Samsung DVD/VHS player-recorder, 500+ each DVDs and CDs, 2x 1TB network servers loaded, Harmony remotes x 2, Dell XPS w/everything. I use 12 gauge zip cord for speaker cables and connect everything thru the receiver with $15 HDMI or optical cables.

The Denon has Audessey & I own an Avia disk, an SPL meter and lots of other calibration tools. In the end I tweaked everything so it sounded and looked good to me - calibrated perfectly for my ears and eyes. Who cares what the 'scope or the meter says? I paid for it, I listen to it and look at it, and it sounds and looks great to me. Sometimes I think my friends and neighbors are impressed, too. :)

Next big wish: wireless HDMI so I can hang a 42" lcd in the dinette! BluRay is coming for Xmas in the form of a Playstation3.

I live in Clermont and work in Orlando. I first moved to Central Florida in the early 70s at the Angibilt downtown and gradually moved west thru downtown, Pine Hills, and Winter Garden; I've lived in Clermont for the last 11 years.

I like it, and WAF is high, though sometimes I miss my big old Infinity speakers. These just don't see to move as much air, but they're much more accurate and the high end is incredibly clear.

Do you think a bigger (15") subwoofer would make a difference, considering the 2 300 watters built into the STs and the 1200 watt D-12?

Maybe some DIY speakers can solve that ... :yes:

I'm sure that somebody at the DIY section can answer that for you ... I read post were they show graphs from a computer program where they model sub builds; and I'm sure they can do the same for you :yes:
