Nyal has the experience and expertise, so I won't make a recommendation. The more mass you add, the lower the resonant frequency of the wall. The lower the resonance, the more LF energy is reflected back into the room. This is the point of the added mass in the soundproofing scheme (to keep the energy from propagating through), but the problem with modal excitation; the two issues really are at odds.

There was no build thread on the HTPC. There is some info in post #530, but I didn't list the actual HTPC parts since things change so fast. I probably should post some more stuff. What details do you want to know?

it definitely drove the mid bass up too as you are describing. the gain in the 80-150hz was substantial (ranged from 3-7dB!) Good thing is I still have good decay rates in that region.

Pre-Pro: Emotiva XMC-1, DSP: Mini DSP 2x4 balanced
Amplifier: Sunfire TGA7400, Lab Gruppen FP10000Q
Speakers: JTR Noesis 212HT (LCR), JTR Slant 8's (surrounds), 3 Orbit Shifter LFU's
Sources: PS3, HTPC, Dish Network
Projector: Epson 8350
Screen: Seymour XD AT 138" diagonal 16:9

If you keep posting in your own thread, your personal post count won't ever catch up to the thread's post count.

Someone should set up a live webcast...

Ok, maybe not...

Ooooo... Google glass live webcast. Then you could get a full POV perspective...

I am sure that there will be pictures, but maybe someone will video. Probably would need something besides a cell phone camera to get decent images when the lights go dim.

Have fun guys, wish I could be there. So far the surgery went well, just a real rough night. Should be a great event. What am I saying, will go down in GTG history.

Just leaving Marion (Cedar Rapids) with a short stop to drop of my 15 year old at a friend's house in Pleasant Hill. You have my seat reserved for me that I "claimed" weeks ago, right? (just kidding)

LOL. My daughter is driving us. It is good highway practice for her since she is 15, but I know that I would be making better time of I was driving. If I get her to switch drivers I might just have her open the door and jump out at her friends house. I told her that I would slow down enough that she could tuck and roll and be OK.

My Dad is from Cedar Rapids and my uncle still lives in Tiffin....I usually get back a couple times a year to Iowa City to catch a Hawkeyes game. My dad played there in the mid 50's.
