I'm working at home today so I decided to work while listening to music down in the theater. The surround speakers just scared the everliving crap out of me! Hahaha!

The Meridian processor does some wacky things when using Ambisonics DSP mode!

Here's what lilmike advised when I asked about power handling of the DVC in the F20:



More in depth in the F20 thread about our convo. Having said alllll that 400W/sub should be a very safe setup for the horns but you will need a high pass. The high pass according to Mike is more to control distortion below Fc(tune of the horn) which in this case is 20Hz. The best solution for that IMO is the MINIdsp which will also take care of EQ.


Do you have a link to this minDSP? I was hoping that the Meridian 568 would let me do this but it apparently won't... low pass only.

I'm going to look into this amplifier. It would be great if I could source one through work but the one you linked to seems like a good deal.

I actually know a guy selling a behringer dsp1000 too on here.... It has built in dsp and would not over power your setup.....

Ill see if he still has it and what price he wants.....

As far as the minidsp make sure to get the balanced version.....

Really...how much "work" is going to be done? I hope your boss isn't reading your thread!

Seriously, I wish I could do that too. Sounds better than a windowless office.

Oh, cool. Let me know about the dsp1000. One box solution > two-box.

PLENTY is getting done, actually. It would be a different story if the projector were on the ceiling, however.

Wired up subwoofer #2 tonight, put a second coat on the stairwell, and tidied. Looks like Sunday will be the carpet pull-up day. :-)

I need to put up some more Linacoustic on the sub faces facing the listener but DAMN, this is a pretty sight!

No problem at all. I'm going to cover it in Linacoustic 2" anyway since they're so massive.

I can't believe she sold a classic multipurpose table like that. What was she thinking?

Oh, well maybe she'll get you a little giant ladder as a replacement. ;-)

Looking good my frined, I'll echo Tony's comments, starting to come together and looking like a theater.

Thanks!

I ripped up all the carpet and padding today. The new carpet comes on Wednesday. This week is going to be a flurry of activity. I'm going to take the carpet to the county drop off tomorrow.

I'm painting the baseboards now and should finish up the stairwell painting today or tomorrow.

^^^Just be aware of the fact your baseboards can take some abuse when the carpet goes in, especially if you freshly paint them right before the instal.

Might be something to consider, or you could remove them, paint them and then reinstall after the new carpet.

When I paid for my carpet I told and wrote on the receipt that the would repair and re-paint if there was damage. They were extra careful and there was zero damage.

I have had this done a few times and some installers act like they could care less, but as soon as the accountability is on them to fix it they suddenly can do it without any problem.

Might be worth a mention if you hate painting as much as I do let alone filling dents with wood filler, sanding, painting...

Hmm, good advice. I think we'll continue to paint them but we'll be prepared for touch-up after the carpet goes in.

RT, this has me thinking...do I need to protect al my baseboards and cabinets before my carpeting is being installed? I was thinking of masking off all my wood work with painters tape and even cardboard. Or is this overkill?

I don't think it is overkill. A lot depends on how flexible the backing of your carpet is. The backing of my carpet was incredibly stiff, so that necessitated quite a bit of touching up.

You might want to extend a hand to the installer and see what he thinks. His experience in this regard would be invaluable. If I had known it would have been an issue I would have done things a little differently, but touching up was not too awful bad.
