We should call a minister, because all of a sudden this thread doesn't have a prayer.

Yes, but it wasn't obvious because you spelled it in English.

Oh Man, you're running with 4 subs. That must sound amazing. my sound is great with one. I was thinking about adding 1 more but, now I think maybe add another to the front and one for the back of the room. Please, if you can, describe what improvements you hear with rear subs. I'd appreciate it.

Hi John,
How are you? It's good to see the threads have calm down in regards of the upgrading receivers etc.

I decided to go the 4 subs route because I wanted every seating position to experience what the main is listening too. The subs are all calibrated together at 75db and work as one. I'm actually running it as 7.1. To be honest i love it has plenty of headroom, the bass is more uniformed and tight. I can move to any seating pos and not be disappointed. I feel it more though I'm guessing thats the air displacement( I think that's what they call it ). Highly recommend it if you ever get the chance to do it.

Love your room, looks great

I flipped through the pages on your thread very quickly and note that some commented that your original screen looked too high but then I see that you subsequently changed your screen to a 117" Stewart.

I'm in middle of building my own dedicated room and getting a 112" Carada Criterion 2.35:1 screen.
- I'm currently trying to decide on screen height (I'll be placing my centre speaker under the screen....I believe the recommendation is to have 1/3 of screen below eye line. And I'm curious to learn about other forum members set up/advice.

Q1) what height is the bottom of your screen from the floor?
Q2) what height is your PJ in relation to the TOP of your screen?

I notice your viewing distance is 4m/13ft, I'm targeting for 3m / 9.8 ft
I'm derived this viewign distance from where recommended viewing distance is between 2.5 - 3 times the screen height & also been checking forum members feedback on this thread http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1296649 with interest.
(PJ to be 3962 mm / 13 ft back from screen to get Throw ratio of 2.0)

Regards,
Stuart

Hi Stuart I can check q1 for you tonight but q2 my projector is in the back room sits quite close to the ceiling, I guess that the beauty about jvc with lens shift( there wasnt too much to go down anyway.)

The further back I guess the better my projector is 5m + back. I don't have to much zoom and its better for the Schneider lens im using.

Thanks Frank.

My screen will be 835mm from floor to botton of screen material & I'm curious to compare against your setup.

If you didn't have your center speaker, would you choose to have your screen lower or do you find your current screen height 'right', if you know what I mean?

My current screen height is perfect when you sit down its spot on. The " screen is too high " was mentioned when I had a custom built cabinet, the cabinet itself was high and also had a centre on it. which did not help I think I still have a pic laying somewhere around.

I can always place my centre on the floor angling up like some have done I've actually thought about it but once I had the installers in they agreed it wasn't worth as the screen height was right. With my centre I prefer to try and have the tweeters the same height as the FL and FR it keeps a good balance.

I had thought they must have been commenting on your older setup, which is why I was so curious on your current screen height. Thanks for your replies.
