For a while I was really pushing it with ~15dB of boost! Enough to make it flat to 5hz but... I actually didn't like it. Sure, it was "cool" for those effects but a lot of the time the system's tone was just too heavy. I didn't enjoy the sound and it was wasting so much amplifier headroom. Decided to take off some 6dB worth of boost and left it there. Rather have 6dB of extra headroom everywhere than some extra ULF "awesomeness" sometimes occasionally rarely. And there is where I have left the FR for the bass. Mostly...

In an ideal world (system) I'd like to have the system flat to 2-3hz or something but in this case I compromised some for more overall SPL and that I enjoy (and paid a f**k ton for in sweat, blood, tears, time and money).
What is up!

I hear ya brutha. Ok...you can pile on now Luke.

Hey!

I never saw this post. Sorry, man.

Yeah....about that quoted post. I still have extension to the single digits. They are just a bit lower in intensity than the rest of the bass. Still present, definitely. Just doesn't sound as badass to say I'm down 6-8db. Whatever.

No Worries. I'm with you on this. Lost my good mid bass because of chasing the ULF extremes. Everything you said is dead on. I stopped using Dynamic EQ and everything is back to normal and it sounds a ton better.

Hey Scott, I've been trying to find the answer to this lately with no luck and I imagine you might be one to know--was Seymour screens started by that guy that had the epic thread for his garage home theater (main picture always seemed to be that clown fish on the screen) where he completely built his own steel-framed curved screen? edit: in case anyone else was curious about this, it was SMX screens "Sandman's theater" build thread. Apparently the guy was a crook and took off with a bunch of money that people gave him for order deposits. The build thread has also been gutted. Damn shame, all of that.

Been trying to find that thread lately but not having any luck (though I wouldn't be too surprised if he took it down seeing as it started a screen company yet gave everyone all the info they needed to build their own). Want to look into how to build a 4-way masking system and thought he might have info on it.

Also, six overheads to four... interesting. I finally went from .2 to .4 and I'm finding various pro/cons for both. I'd like to think .6 would be all pros and no cons, but I suppose we'll see when we get a true (and affordable) .6 pre-pro offering (don't let us down Emotiva!!)

Context, Javanpohl. Context.

My 6ch overhead system was derived from post-processing "Scatmos". It's not native 6ch overhead. So it's hard to say "should be all pro's, no con's". It's not a fair comparison Nothing really supports more than two pairs of overheads now. I might like it if it were native.

Moving from 2 to 4 is completely different.


No, sorry. I am not familiar with the thread you are remembering. It's been such a long time. I just know that they SeymourAV guys are awesome and I will continue to purchase from them and recommend them to others.

I may be the odd one here, but I'm actually more impressed by your room than the extension itself, myself I've had to dial back solely because I will have too much interaction from things in the room or the room itself at those frequencies... Currently I've shut off the infra-boost card in my active crossover even.

The house complains quite a bit, believe me. The real deep stuff causes certain things to buzz, creak or rattle. Higher SPL higher frequency bass does too.

The louder I go the more house noises go with the sound. Ugh. I hate it. I need a concrete bunker for my HT.

Yes, I was aware that you were using Scatmos--I didn't think you had the Trinnov Altitude

Did you think going from 2 to 4 was a much bigger difference than 4 to 6?

I never had just one pair of overheads. I started with six and went to four.

I can tell you that having four is worth it. A single pair only allows stereo overhead imaging. A front and rear pair allows full 360 imaging overhead.


Yes, I'd imagine going to four would be a worthy upgrade. I wouldn't do anything less unless I had no choice.
