Its sure is tough to know when you are finished your HT,almost always an ongoing process,but I think I am content.The sub and the speaker stands are DYI and are quite heavy(200lbs sub,100lbs each stand),not looking forward to moving in the not too distant future!

Welcome to the Shack.

Nice set-up,... nice and clean. :T Just the way I like 'em. My system is similar in that respect though not as many goodies as you have :D

Very nice setup. How do you like your B&W's? How does your DIY Sub stand up? Did you follow a reference design or design the sub yourself?

I like the B&W's,thought they were a little on the bright side at first,but with some playing around I got them to a point where I like them.The sub cabinet is almost 20 years old,designed it myself,went with a sealed unit because it is much more forgiving to design.If you look towards the bottom you can see a wood plate under the drivers,there used to be a couple ports there that I experimented with,but ultimately sealed it back up again.Sealed had tighter bass,less boomy,but to be fair it is not big enough to be properly ported.It is fully braced with 1 1/2" wall thickness,just updated the drivers with a pair of Dayton 10" HF drivers.Sounds nice and tight,but not overly loud,as it is in very large room.

I have added a Dayton 15" HF to my priority list. I think within 3 months. I also need a BASH amp to power it. I want to build a 5-6 CF box in the attic. It will be a large sealed, not quiet IB, I keep hearing very good things about the HF series Daytons.

My mains are Natalie P's That I am in the process of building an enclosure for.

Hey Kyle
If I could do it all over again,I would also go with a 15" sub.Duel 10" are great for music,but a single 15" would I am sure be the better way to go for movies.

Your system looks great! What I like most is the Seahawks helmet above your TV. The next best thing to going to a game is watching it in surround sound in your Home Theater!

Dude; you need a bigger helmet above your tv...How about a Fathead helmet or of Seneca Wallace! Though Im a Chicago Fan; the Seahawks are ok. Im a Seneca Wallace fan; eventhough he went to Iowa State.

Yup. Lived in the Quad Cities for about 12 years during the Hayden Fry days.

There are worse places to be. I'd go back to the QC before going back to NJ any day.
