Hey everyone,

I am on my second Sony DN1070 now and I'm considering returning it because of an annoying issue I'm having.

Sometimes, maybe once out of every 4/5 times I turn on my system,...

The side is an option. It would be on the inside near the couch. I was checking out the terminal cups earlier. If I used one, is there an easier way to connect them to the driver without soldering?

Merlin is making that determination because the mid-bass driver on the Q100 is 5.25". A general rule of thumb is that you would need a 6" or larger bass driver to have a good crossover at 80hz.

Would you be open to replacing the screen with an acoustically transparent one? You could build one your self. It's not that difficult and pretty cheap to do. That would allow you to have your LRC...

I'd recommend you cross over your Q100's at 100hz. I would not go lower than that. Because it is a concentric (Uni-Q) driver, the mid-bass driver also acts as a waveguide for the tweeter. A crossover...

I received this as a gift but unfortunately it doesn't work with RCN cable. It works with Time Warner, Fios, and many others though. (Check their website.)

It is $250 on Amazon. I'm selling for...

I'd be interested in a sound bar flat pack with the Volts. [emoji106]

I was actually researching how to build one for a secondary TV we have.

Hey everyone,

It was almost a year ago that I started this thread. I hit the pause button on the projector and screen to build new subs for my HT. They're ported 18" Stonehenge flat pack subs. One...

Hi,

I've done some looking but haven't seen a product that looks good for my situation.

My receiver has one HDMI out and I've just installed a projector in the same room as my TV.

The top side of the projector is rounded so when I place it upside down it moves. I didn't think of Velcro but that's interesting. I did think of possibly using Blu-tack to hold it.

Maybe this is the solution. I might be able to mount it just ahead of the skylight on the ceiling and then angle the projector back a bit. It looks like there is a lot of adjustability.
