The screen is 100". The photo is deceiving, the front row is fine.

I just went with it because it was the place where it sounded best in my room. I assume that's why others have done it?

It should not be a problem at all, if its the best place for it then put it there.

And I do not think that bashing subs is going to be appropriate for this thread. It could get pretty damned ugly. So, please, resist replying.

The RSW-15 rocks! I wish I had one.

Is it me or does the MFW-15 have a DIY look to it, I love it. I almost ordered a Moho Satin but went with Moho Rosa Satin instead, the MFW is awesome!

RF-83's as side surrounds?!? Waste of a good deal of money in my view. They make speakers devoted to side surrounds that would do the job perfectly and you won't have to spend as much money.

Just my 2 cents....

Actually, I have (6) RF-83 speakers in my 9.2 system. The side surrounds have RS-62 for movies and RF-83 for 5.1 music like SACD. I have RF-83 for the rear surrounds for 7 channel stereo mode.

It sounds really great!

Oh yeah, this is the ""YOUR" subwoofer picture thread". The picture above is a capture from a video clip showing more than 3" of driver excursion of one of my two Gotham sub woofers.

My addition to the thread. A humble, single JL113 in an 11 x 13 X 9 room more focused on music then HT.

One thing I notice about people's Fathom setups. They never have the grill on. And I understand why. Though the chromed steel pins don't look bad, JL should look into something like the magnetic retainers SVS uses on the Ultra.

Magnetic retainers would never be secure enough for the Fathom let alone the Gotham, or at least that's what they say over at J L Audio, and I beleive it!

Just not true. You gotta love a salesman. It's always 'what we do is better'.

Every other sub I've owned, I've kept the grilles on. Not my new JL F112 though.

What can I say, I am a man on a budget. Here are my Bic H-100 and F-12.





They are not set up like this. This is just them posing together.

Anyway it was good. The projector is an Epson 1080UB, the screen is a Stewart. The picture looked great and the sound was good. Not overpowering. The front sound stage may have had some separation but it was not horrible or distracting.

You have to go with what you have. When I defined the size of the room I was not well informed. I actually picked a golden ratio for FR. If you saw the graph I posted that appeared to work out pretty well. I wish it was several feet deeper but it is not.

Truth be known, I am very lucky to enjoy such a great dedicated theater.

Hi Bill,

For what it's worth, I think you have an amazing looking theater. I like your choice of subs and think your speakers look cool w/o their grills.
I also like the contrast that your wood trim provides on the walls.

I have also watched Mamma Mia on Blu-ray. My fiancee and I alternate picking movies from our Netflix.
Personally, I thought it was not a very good movie. Much of the singing was obviously recorded in a studio and then dubbed over the movie.

Wow guys, some very very nice set ups in here. Here is my humble addition with a SVS PB12-NSD, although in my <1400 sq. ft. room it doesn't sound humble .




Very nice work everyone!

Hey what size TV is that on that stand? How do you like that stand? I'm currently on the market for one and like the look of yours. Do you know what the width of that stand is (I wanna know if it'll work on the wall that I'll be putting the TV)
