A-weighting also rolls out the highs, so be on the lookout for hi frequency hiss as well.

All circuits should be on the same phase. If not, you can get noise.

And – it’s possible that the miniDSP can take care of this once you get it in the system. It will convert the unbalanced...

Adding to what the others have recommended, listen to the speakers at low volume with a simple program source like spoken voice. If you hear a kind of buzz “undertone” and / or distortion, it means...

I think I’d put the two Behris on one circuit, the two AVRs on another, and everything else on a third. If you wire everything with 12-3 you can do 20-amp or 15-amp circuits – won’t matter which you...

I‘m not sure what the purpose of the Marantz is when you can plug the blu-ray player into the soundbar. Basically, AVRs and active soundbars are two “hub” methods for home theater audio. They are...

I don’t think nails will work well in MDF. You’ll have to use screws into a small pilot hole.

That aside, IMO these speakers are too heavy to hang on a wall unless whatever you’re hanging them on...

Not much makes sense here.


Most people break out a 220 volt panel to multiple 120 volt circuits. Are you saying you have three 220 volt circuits instead?
