We didn't have time to figure the signal chain out completely, but when I left I thought they did sound better than when we started. Would just have liked to have had more time.
Thanks on the speakers! I want to move to a more pro audio design. Thinking about the new HTM-10 over a MBM. My living room is huge with 21ft high ceilings and open to almost the entire house and I want a little more kick in the mid-bass. The towers have really good bass output down to 30 something hz, but it just gets lost in my huge room. I set up my Volt-10's as mains for a few days and A-B'ed against my towers and the tactile feel was more present in the room with the 10". It had more of that live sound feel. I haven't posted on here because I don't want to think about shipping and based on the interest in this thread, doesn't seem to be a whole lot of Jax people here. Guess it couldn't hurt though.
Yea, I'll need to double check my readings off my *****ty SPL meter but I think mine were 6-8 db hotter when running dual.
I also have dual sub outs on my Marantz 7702mkii. I think it does take into account both and at least partially EQs them separately. Could be wrong.
I bet there's a lot of lurkers in JAX and surrounding areas. A lot probably probably don't even know about this sub-forum.
Since these are a specialty item and would match high end furniture, someone might be willing to pay for shipping. Not sure the cost, but I know U-Ship's been mentioned a lot.
Yea, I feel like the Pro Audio is the way to go to get dynamics, tactile response, etc. When are you planning on starting the new build? Any cool design features/veneers?
What subs do you have? Or do you not have any? With your wood working skills, you could probably do a nice end/coffee table design.
With your large space, ported may be the way to go. If you xover @ 80Hz, a good sub is a must in your space. I have a large space too, but I want a different end goal. Flat to five!

getting together and trying a bunch of different speakers sounds fun...not sure what i can bring...doubt anyone wants to hear the BIC's. the JBL's might be worthy of a meet, but those dang things are heavy...
between hooking up at your place, whenever you are set up and then grnwnv when he is ready...should be alot of fun..im still dying to hear his 1099's.
I will let Matt explain the dual sub thing if he has time...I will probably explain it wrong...well that and I can barely remember the details.
so you dont have a screen up at all? I ended up getting one of them amazon specials..I guess its served its purpose so far.
and yes Matt's speakers are pretty tight.
Also, I'm pretty sure the xbox here can't do 4K, WCG and HDR stuff. So the Roku made sense for a semi-permanent solution.
I feel even the BIC's would be great to hear. The purpose of a GTG is to be able to experience all different types of speaker designs. A lot of the people (like us) have limited experiences. So any and all speakers (and subs) should be welcome. The more to compare and contrast, the merrier!
But yea, definitely want to hear these revered DIYSG speakers! Be it the Volt's or 1099's or whatever else someone may have.
Yea, I'm just projecting ~150" 16:9 onto a (lightly) textured beige wall. But it really does look good with proper source material.
Maybe this weekend I can sit down and study the screen samples and make a choice. If so, depending on the availability of the material I choose, I could get a screen built and mounted in a couple weeks.
