I just did the update and re-ran ARC. What I found was that ARC was way more modest with the capability of my fronts (seem to be getting a lot more volume from them). Overall, it sounds phenomenal....

I just ran a calibration today and ARC set them to -1 for LR and -2 for the center channel. They sound phenomenal.

OK crap, now I'm second guessing myself. I want to make sure I get it right before I put the driver in (and my memory sucks from the last time I built these)...I hook up the speaker wire from the...

I finally got around to making the speaker boxes for the IW62s. I haven't tested them out yet, but the boxes are rock solid. The stands are MDF top and bottom (lots on the bottom for extra weight)...

I'm using the UM 15-22 for my micro and I'm wiring it like the bottom left diagram and then I have the 4 pole Neutrik XLR cap for the sub which iirc I'll be wiring to the +1 -1 connectors. Here's a...

Trust me, if I could get a full frontal lobotomy and my hands on a Delorean suited with a flux capacitor, I would happily do it all over again. Vanilla WoW and BC FTW!

I wasted I think 6 years of my life on that game and don't regret a second of it. It was so much fun. It's too bad this movie didn't seem to live up to it's video game counterpart, but I'll pick it...

Just finished the cuts for my two Micro cubes and ordered the Dayton UM15-22s. Damn that made a lot of dust! I'll post a pic or two when I get a chance. I'll be using the 4X restore deck stuff for...

You will love them. I don't have a lot of room, so I built a full marty up front using the UXL 18 driver and a micro using the um-15 22. I just got dusty today working on building my third and soon...

A few of my favourites you should try (note, not favourite movies, just amazing sound):

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Ghost Protocol

I'm curious about the upmixer for DTS:X, but I'm certainly happy with DSU as well. Ignorance is bliss for now, I suppose. I haven't found a need to double dip. DSU has been stellar save for a few...

I'm keeping faith in the notion that they'll provide all the features as promised. There are, what, less than a handful of titles in DTS:X right now anyway? And how many more by the end of the...

I also really enjoyed the movie. I did have to watch it over the course of two nights, though, because I really can't stay awake for that long after the kids go to bed. As far as Deadpool goes, I...

I'm pretty sure the 1120 is the same as the 720 WRT subs - it treats it as one signal. I level matched the subs using an spl meter, switched the phase on my iNuke and then ran ARC. The sub...

I watched it last night. Maybe it was because I had really low expectations, but I actually didn't mind the movie. The latter half of the movie was quite enjoyable, tbh. I will attest to the...

I'll get it because I have the other two, but there's nothing awe-inspiring about these movies - they're rather meh and don't engage me enough to foster much of an emotional response. I'm not...

Here's something else to think about. If I could do it all over again, I'd more than likely go with pro cinema speakers. Realistically, they are very competitive price-wise with medium-high end...

That amp definitely won't cut it for the 603 speakers. It's a 16 ohm speaker, so you need double the watts you'd need for an 8 ohm speaker. It may be OK for the 601s, but I guess I'm erring on the...
