Now I have to figure out whether to go with active, passive, what horn, what CD, etc. I may just end up with Mark's cabinets to save myself a half year of building the cabs. I hope to have something complete by this time next year.
BTW what is the hold up Scott? Don't you have a game plan and all of the drivers already?
Ahhh... so many choices.
Your system sure aint no slouch. It would be pretty cool to see what you have to upgrade from what you have now in your HT room.
Hahaha. Yeah, I am laggin' like a mutha.
Pretty much most of the hold up is related to the all mighty dollar. I seem to keep convincing myself that I should hold out for that 'better, more expensive' part XYZ. Also I've been on the fence about the LG amps but they are right in that performance/price point that works for me so just saving up for that. Which also started out as, "I'll get one 14k for the subs and just use Berry's for the mains.... my new uber mains. Wait. Ugh. Wait a little longer, save and get the 10kQ for the uber mains. Yup. *tick tick tick* Sigh."
Another thing holding me back was that I could not quite 'finalize' the whole system. See, I'm not just making new speakers but also new subs, new screen, adding acoustic treatment and rerouting all the source/audio components to the opposite side of the room in the closet and all that stuff.
It's an entire project. A big upgrade. Coming about to find the best way to execute everything in one big swoop and get everything at least 95% there on the first try... it's pretty hard to do all this by myself so it's taking some time and taking quite a toll on me in more than one way.
Currently awaiting someone to buy a Spirometer from me on eBay which should give my finances a healthy injection. After that, I order the final parts. The amps and crossovers. Then I just gotta tear everything down and rebuild with all new stuff. Almost there!
Thanks for asking.
