Dual purpose (especially open concept) rooms are not great
for projectors. Especially when you have little ones. With that articulating mount you can easily get a 65-75" panel with great performance in the day and at night. I've yet to see a sub $3000 projector compare to the 4k LG OLEDs or even the Vizio P series (shockingly good).

We have sun 360 days a year and an amazing view so I don't want to turn my media room into a cave. I'm planning to keep a 65" panel (we love watching passive 3D). Currently a Sony but would like to get the LG OLED. Then ceiling mount a 120" 2.35:1 screen. My dealer insists that the JVC RS500 is the way to go. Still researching.

It's fine though, the 20-80hz response is outstanding and I've already gotten many grin inducing moments in the short time I've had it. I think a 9.2 ch receiver is in order before a second FV15HP lol. Resources are a finite thing after all.
12hz is a mother to reproduce at good levels and with one 15" and such a large open space it's not gonna happen. In my experience with this sub propped integration, response and placement is the most important to get that chest thumping bass, it took me months to figure that out to make it work in my room and because it's freaking heavy to move it took longer, in the end I actually had to point the driver at my wall about 2-3" from the wall with the grill on to get the body shaking bass and the smoothes graph.

Yeah I may end the chase for ULF. I'll still see how medium and high sound though. When you say panel, you mean TV or Projector? Assuming you mean TV. The mount I have is rated for up to 55" I think. I may eventually get a 60" - 65" TV for this room - definitely a project for the dedicated HT in basement when I get to it.

Panel: Plasma, LCD, OLED

I like watching my TV on a panel. Projectors are for movies only FOR ME [flame suit armed]. The LG 4k Dolby Vision HDR demo loop in the Best Buy Magnolia room is unreal! I'm still shocked by the Vizio P as well. I think that is why Sony is releasing their Z series mid-cycle/early!

Rythmik Audio L22 at 10Hz, 15Hz, 20Hz and 40Hz. You can see the difference in excursion. I get good output starting at 12Hz only because the L22 is 18" from my body.

That's a cool way to demonstrate driver excursion vs. frequency.

How loud were those tones playing?
