For movies, I usually run around -15 to -10 with occasionally reference levels.

Just finished reading this monster thread and every other 1099 thread on AVS, certainly not a quick read hehe
Furthermore, just got confirmation LCR 1099's have shipped
Time to start my own build thread, probably will include some martys as well.. and everything else that's needed for a lounge HT

Immediate props goes to the numerous people involved with designing, supplying and contributing to the 1099 DIY dream

Well, I picked up a Marantz NR1607 (the higher version compared to the NR1506) yesterday as my new AVR for what will be the livingroom system in the new house. We are still in our current house for a couple more weeks so I got it set up already. So far, so good! I have a bit more tweaking to do but the Marantz powers the 1099s for music effortlessly and sounds fantastic. I am curious to see how the Marantz does with movies. I haven't had subs set up for over 2 months now because of how we staged the house to sell it. The 1099s do nicely but boy do I miss having some oomph to back them up!

Anyone willing to share an accurate front baffle CAD/CNC (or pdf/other with dimensions) plan?
I couldn't afford to ship the baffles internationally but still want them cnc'd if possible.

I just got a set of 1099s w/ bamboo cabinets. Can't wait to get them together. I'll make my own build thread once I get them done.

Yeah the trim rings put the finishing touch on all of them, they sound as good as they look, I don't know many speakers (at least what I've heard) that can compare with the quantity and quality of sound the 1099s produce. Especially when you factor in my investment, the little extra $ for assembled cabs was worth every penny to me, construction is top tier.

I did everything else myself and it was truly a rewarding experience when finished, that though was just the beginning, then came the sound and smiles.............

I wish I would have documented my build as I acquired quite a bit of knowledge with crossover assembly and how they work by trouble shooting my boards and making sure I was getting all the performance out of these speakers the designer intended. The community was great as well and gave me the confidence needed to do that. Thanks again for the compliment.

Cheers Jeffrey

So I'm scoping out the 1099's (obviously, or I wouldn't be here ) and I have a question regarding the XO.

I try not to meddle with electronics. The XO on this thing is terrifying for a noob like me. I've read there's a member round these parts that we can "hire" to build the XO for us. How does that work if I purchase the 1099 kit of DIYSG? Or do I go through different channels to get the XO parts from the member and the drivers/ports/cabinet from DIYSG?

Apologies if all this info is posted somewhere and I missed it.

Send mtg90 a pm.. you order the 1099's and once you get them you ship the crossover parts to mtg90 and he can put it together for you and send it back.

Here's the link to Matt's crossover thread.
Crossover Assembly Services & Custom Crossover Boards for DIYSG Kits

I also have PCB's if you decide to take up soldering. It's not that hard to solder.
post #25 of this thread:
First Time Builder - 1299 Center and 2 Marty Cubes

It looks like we are in the same area. So hit me up if you decide to assemble and solder the board yourself or have me assemble it for you.

Much appreciated, gents. I've soldered before, and I watched Matt's video on YouTube regarding the easier XO's for the Volts and other speakers with PCBs. Those I can tackle. I saw the diagram for the much more complicated-looking 1099 and panicked

@ja00 I'm looking at these for when I move, probably later this year or next year, and I'll be going to TN. Thank you so much for your offer! If by some chance I end up staying in OC, I'll definitely shoot you a message.
