For what it's worth, I don't have a man cave, rather, I have a man floor - theater, bar, family room, office, game room, and driving range (not kidding).

Additionally, I've always been a video guy and when I decided to build this new house and have a dedicated theater I first started investigating quality speakers. I've read all the comments about hearing "everything" and what a huge difference speakers can make etc. etc..... This is the first (and last - I'm old) great set of speakers I've ever had and all I can say is that I'm totally floored. Listening to "my" music from the 60's and 70's is an entirely new experience and I'll be forever grateful to all of you on this forum for helping push me over the edge. The action film experience (especially bass) not withstanding, I have a high intensity light installed right over the MLP for reading while listening to music in my totally black theater. The experience is astounding.

Thanks to all of you and Jeff.
Thanks for the post buzz and I'm glad you found speakers that do what you want.

Cheers,

Rob

Recalibrated my system again this weekend for a more balanced sound. Did a auto calibration with the Antimode dual core for the bass. Then ran MCACC. MCACC set my subs -10, trim at +1.0 on the avr. While all my subs dial is pointing at -8. No house curve. In the end I really like the way it sounds. More tight and accurate on the bass side. So my current speakers.... Oh boy, I watched Elysium at -8 MV today. Not my normal listening level. But my speakers, talk about running out of gas!.. I just can't wait to changed them out! Here's the measurement in the end. Didn't take it at reference level though. But rather my normal listening vol when I watch movies.

Thanks Lance.. I'm still looking at different amps right now. And if I don't decide by then, still gonna use some of my friends amps to try out. But the D-Sonic M3-5400 is starting to look appealing. Just not to much write up or reviews on it.

since you mentioned dualcore, what do you think of it?
I'm thinking of running my prepro outs into my 2x4 mini dsp, 1 of each channel into the dualcore, then out to my S2s. I needed to get 2 signals out for my buttkickers. Wonder if thats too much crap inbetween before the signal hits my S2s

No regrets whatsoever.. Very powerful tool. At first it seem complicated with the features. But after playing with it more it's very easy to use. I'm actually thinking of getting another for my speakers when I get them. Does the butt kickers have RCA or XLR input? Because with the dual core, if your not running stereo subs, then all you need is one signal in and you have active 2 XLR outs and 2 RCA outs.

Not to sure if it will work as I don't have experience with buttkickers but...Iuse an Open DRC-AN from Mini DSP. A little more than the 2x4 (less ch out I know) but you get a chassis for it, it has XLR in and out, and just looks nicer and feels better and more solid with the XLR's. I mainly wasn't too fond of doing all my own little Phoenix connectors. But I currently run one of each of it's two channels to each subversive. But I link them back up on the software user interface anyway on my Mac when I go to EQ them. So I could just do a Y splitter to each Submersive since they work together anyway and would have another channel opened up you could split to your buttkickers? Just a thought The actual use of it is really nice! Easy and having a low shelf filter to run a house curve is very nice! I watched the "Pulse" server room for the first time last night. After about the 7-8 wave rattling the house my wife said, "you better be careful!"

Looking for advice on how to ship my Triple 12LF's. I don't have the original boxes. Pretty sure FedEx ground would ship them, but how do I package them??

Why not do them as a crate and ship them through a cartage carrier?
You could get a pallet, a sheet or two of OSB and some 2x4's. And a few pieces of the 2" thick pink isolation foam from Home Depot.
That's how I would do it if I didn't have the original boxes.

I would highly recommend shipping them on a pallet and through YRC freight. Find a friend or family member who has any kind of account with a freight company and you can ship through them to get the massively discounted rate. For example I shipped a performance Engine to South Beach Miami 2 years ago. Normal cost was going to be 900 bucks but only like 270 after my work discount. I just shipped the Sherbourn PA 7350 and Denon 3313ci along with some cables to Atlanta for 122.04. A plus is they are not rolled all the way. And you just package them super good with like 1 ft of padding and lots of "DO NOT STACK" signs and you are good to go!

Not sure Carp. I just decided to load a different one that looked cool with me changing my forum style to black. It was weird at first but I am really liking the black style AVS now. Just try loading your avatar pic again and it may do it.

I had the last format in black as well as this format and have always liked it better. The only problem is when people change their font color to a dark color or grey. It gets hard to see what they say, but that doesn't happen to often.

I have only had it for a month and a half, and plan on keeping it for quite a bit longer! The one I bought was the m2-2500 as that was ample enough wattage by a long shot for anything I would even put on it. at close to 1000 wpc 4 ohm, that is more than I will ever need, and the price was right on the "Bstock" units that he builds out custom per order Nothing really B stock about them.

It is my understanding that Jeff was set to receive the parts this week.

I was second in line behind RHED until the delay, now I am being told another 2-3 weeks before they will be here.

My order is for 2 - 215RT and 1 - 215RM...

Very much looking forward to it..

Da*n straight!!

Nah, just got lucky with the timing of the upcoming GTG. Oooh my first usage of a new smiley.

Hmmm and then got lucky with the timing of the sale of my 212's.... and then got lucky that the new owner is a friend and let me keep the 212's until the GTG (VERY cool of him to do that!! ). All the planets aligned for me on this one.

Jeff is probably still tweaking the XO for the 215RM. He will likely keep doing that till they ship.
