Just ordered the rocketfish wireless sub kit so I'll be moving those to the back corner of the room to see how they sound. New stand all put together too!

Good to see, you have done some try and error, and found your happy spot.
Glad to see it worked out for you!

Look good

I usually pull them out of the garage into the yard on Friday and Saturday nights when we have neighbors over. They are perfect for party music!

+1 on that!!!

By the way, that's what got me into about finding out about speakers building after a member told me " open them up and see what is in-side".

Then I learn a few things, but those CV were always doing what they are suppose to do, Play Loud not deceiving like other that claim to be audiofile grade and are not.

I know this may not be a great match but I get what I am able to hear locally

Room 27 long by 13.5 wide with 8 ft ceiling 7.1 setup
one end for HT other end for Stereo
120 inch front projector screen on Epson projector and
65 inch 4k Sony for tv and non movie venue

For Home Theater Speakers:
First, on hand:
Front L&R channels: JBL L-300 monitors in home built cabinets,
Rear: small low cost JBL 2 way bookshelf units mounted in rear wall
Sub: 18 inch JBL sub in 8 cu ft home made cabinet

Just added:
Front center: Klipsch Reference 64 RC
Side channels Klipsch Reference 62 RS

Currently all but the sub are on a Yamaha 3010 receiver I may move front sides to a 100 watt/ch Audire amp as a trial

Adding 4 RealTrap Minitrap bass traps to balance out the room bass and reflections

Hoping I can sort of match great clarity of the L-300's with the less clear (despite the horn tweeter in it) Klipsch center channel...Tends to be warmer and thus not as defining on dialogue to me.

Other end of room stereo setup:
Stereo JBL home built 4343 monitors. Biamped on a Heathkit 250 w/ch bass and 100 w/channel Amber amp for 10"mids and compression driver horns and slot radiators. Back wall Sonex covered
Once I get the bass traps I will post a photo or two

If headphones are OK to post, I have a couple I like. Cheap but nice-sounding HS-28 and HS-19 headphones from A4Tech. I know there are better models, but these do the job for me.

Just upgraded receiver to a pioneer elite VSX-70
I love the network capabilities and on screen display.

Also sound quality is a huge upgrade from the old pioneer unit I had.

Here is my complete system laid out -

12" DIY speakers (35hz)
Wharfedale Diamond 9.6 (2x 8", 28hz) speakers
Harman Kardon DVD48 Universal Player(my CD Player)
Harman Kardon BDP1 Universal Player (my DVD/BluRay Player)
Pioneer PL-35A Turntable w/ Stanton 680EE Cartridge
Vizio 42" LED TV

Retail value ~ US$4,275

The system described -



And here is a sample of how it sound, though admittedly compromised by YouTube, but it still sounds good -


Not the greatest system in the world, but it servers my needs nicely.

For music, I just use the Yamaha RX-797 100w/ch and the Diamond 9.6 speaker that you are hearing in the video.

For movies I turn on the second amp (Onkyo TX-8255, 50w/ch) and the DIY 12" speakers, and it really brings the thunder and light for movies. I felt bass so strong that I felt the upholstery on my chair flex under the impact. That is with NO Sub.

Ah I've often dreamed as a child of owning a nice set of towers, but alas, just not meant to be I guess... at least, not yet.

But I'm more than happy and thoroughly enjoying my 7.1 system made up entirely of Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 350 bookshelves and an Energy s10.3 sub. These were my recent upgrade from entry level Sony bookshelves that I've been using for nearly 10 years. I'm planning on keeping these Def Techs for quite a while.
