Hi Guys,

just got my triple 8 lps for surrounds. ceiling height is 9 feet. any recommendations on placement height (side note the different woofer is mounted in the upper most position) I can flip this if I have to. Just not sure if I want it really high or slightly above ear level. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ehhh still not worrying too much about not having an AT screen. I don't want to lose light and the sound from my center is still damn good as is. I've been in a ton of AT rooms now and while I love them I don't feel like I'm losing a ton in my room, in fact I prefer my setup to many, mostly because I like a massive screen and most are smaller - and the fact that the sound of the 215's do it for me.

Seriously guys, I think I'm done buying HT stuff for a long time. I'm so happy with everything right now there just isn't any reason. I haven't had the itch for so long now (haha, relatively speaking).


Still.... I guarantee someday I'll have an AT setup. I think I'll do it all at once down the road - AT, 4k, Atmos. Until that's all figured out I'll be content with my current setup.

It will be fun to live vicariously through you guys as I'm sure you will all have ^ before I do.

I go back and forth on the subject myself. I wish I would have done an AT, but I decided against it and went with the fixed. I just did not have the space. I think the AT screen is very cool and sounds great, but it is something I can live without. Someday in the new house. The one thing I may upgrade on very soon is a masking system from Carada. I am not sure if I can add it to my current screen or if I have to buy a new screen. It is super cool. I wish I would have looked at it a bit more, but that is another day. I have my hand full right now anyway. I have to upgrade my roof

Sorry guys but I didn't get a chance to do measurements for the ongoing saga "Where's Dgage's Midbass". Maybe tomorrow.

I may not have the midbass nailed down but I think I have the subbass covered. I present to you a pair of SI HST-18s and a pair of HS-24s. Should be fun to play with over the next few weeks and compare the HST-18s to my LMS-5400s. In the smaller attached pictures, I compare a quarter to the HUMONGOUS foam surround on the HST-18...damn impressive.

I think he's real close to bringing them back, just finalizing details. There were many of us hounding him and he finally relented. He had no choice but to give the people what they want.

once these get pounding the walls may cave in and then room boundary will be a moot point!! They look impressive. What amp will you drive these with? Sealed, ported? Can those 18's work in a horn? OMG!

A pair of SpeakerPower SP2-8000 amps will drive each subwoofer with 4000w at 2 ohms.

They will be sealed cabinets and I'll have to play with cabinet size and DSP to determine what size I'll end up with. Much fun to be had.

Good point on the room boundary. That is indeed one way to get rid of that annoyance and I was thinking about expanding the room anyway. Do you think the insurance company has destruction by subwoofer as a check box on their claims worksheet? LOL!
