In a more serious note, do you have any pictures of your set to post?
It does look like you have a nice set-up.


Ray

There's a few Newfoundlanders here. My setup is getting a little older now, while I still love it, I'm slowly updating parts of it. Only pictures I have are bad ones right now.

Joke aside, you are wise to keep them under close supervision.
Since wall and ceiling wiring is a one shot deal.
Also glad you spend the little extra for 12awg, a few more bucks now and have the piece of mind of not thinking "what if?".


Looking forward to have your impression once everything done.

this is where we're at so far, I can't believe they charged 1k for installation though.. is that how much it goes for? I provided the wires and all, I seriously should've just dropped em in myself heh.. but the ladies didn't want me going in the attic and called these guys

my only issue was at first they didn't put the pads in the clamp when putting the bookshelfs up. i told them to put the padding as soon as I saw it, I just hope the casing on the bookshelfs didn't get damaged from being clamped directly with metal

1 G for install seem a little bit steep to me, but again, I do all my own work.


For " but the ladies didn't want me going in the attic and called these guys".
Ladies, you lucky devil


I assume this is the back of your room!?
Never mind, front with opening for the Video Display and the back, my bad.


Are you going to do Atmos since it look like you are going to have ceiling speaker?


And for catching them not putting the pads, Good on You
Good thing you were checking there work if not you were more than likely get some vibration noise.


By the way, I love the color of the room.
And one last thing, a word of advise.
I see you got hardwood floor, I would put a throw on carpet for sound wise.
Hard surface can throw havoc for sound reflection.
A cheap solution.

Love mine's (2 of them).

Buttkickers did


Sound wise, 1 was enough


Ray

I re-post these since I assume you were talking about sub


But I almost bought the SVS Ultra speakers my-self
I did weeks of research before deciding on the aperion Verus Grand series, and it was between the two.
And it was a tough choice.


Still looking for your impression when you got everything running and calibrated.

thanks man, I'm looking to wrap everything up by Tuesday .. yeah 1k is steep but what can i do haha

those floors are actually tile but I am planning to put carpet in the middle of the area

and yeah, I didn't get to watch as closely as I hoped because of others things going on but the work seems ok

I like the color a lot as well, I feel the floors really compliment it and it's relaxing

ill keep you updated and post my thoughts on the ultras

btw about atmos: the setup is 5.1.4 so yes

Very Nice
Also nice acoustic treatment
This is one step that lots of people omit to do and it can be as important as the equipment.


Very well done.

Folks, I need your help!!!


Please take a few minutes to look at my room by clicking the link below "The Chimaera Theater".
This one
The Chimaera theater
Look at the pics and let me know your honest opinion.

On post #26 , I ask

"Fathead has finally came out with a Star Destroyer sticker 54" wide by 34" high.
http://www.fathead.com/star-wars/sta...on/?src=browse
To add perspective, the Death Star in my room is 50" wide.

I like the look of the Death Star and also the Face of Darth Vader and want to keep them.
So I was thinking (just the Star Destroyer) below and to the left of the Death Star, the lower edge (see post#3, 3rd picture).

What do you guys think?
A nice supplement to the name of my Theater or too busy?
or
Replace the Death Star or Darth Vader, with the Star Destroyer since my theater is name after one?"


The more opinions, the better
My room theme is base on the name of a Star Destroyer from Star Wars.
So this is for my man cave look only, where I collect some odd and end about Star Wars.

I would like to know what you guys think for look since there is not much traffic in the "System configuration tread"
Just need some other members perspective on this one!!!

If you have a few minutes, please take time to post since this is very important to me.


Thank you


Ray

Beautiful setup's all. Love to look at and read about other people's creations. I got into the hobby a few years back, it has changed a couple of times since but I am pretty happy with it right now so may keep this setup for a while . I have a smaller room in the basement that is my gaming room/theater room. A lot of stuff crammed into a small space. my setup is:

All speakers are Paradigm Monitor series 7
Monitor11 fronts
Center 3
Mini Monitor surrounds
Surround 3 rear surrounds
Atom monitors front height
SUBS - SVS PB 2000, Energy ESW C10, Energy ESW C 8 x 2
Marantz SR7800 Receiver
Emotiva XPA 3 Gen II
Oppo 103D Bluray player
Sony KDL NX 810, 60" tv
Xbox One, 360, PS4,PS3, Wii U
Belkin Pure AV Power conditioner + Monster power Center

My Fiancé is not into the hobby and didn't want anything in the living room but I negotiated a small setup consisting of a Marantz NR 1504 and Energy Take Classics 5.1 with an LG 47" 3d tv and a Wii.

I don't have any pics right now but will have some soon and will repost, This addiction can get expensive really quick but it is a fun ride


Cheers

I worked for Altec-Lansing in '73-74. Probably the most fun I ever had on a job, and it's where I learned the most. I got to know John Eargle before he left for JBL (the horror!).


I have Emotova Pro Stealth 8s in front and Realistic Minimus 7s in the back.
