I've wondered if DSU for 2 channel music can help with this - make a more dead sounding HT room sound more like a room meant for 2 channel music.

I'm 10 feet from 12' 3" inch wide 2:35:1 screen. Love it. I have a back row that I could use in case I feel too close, but I only use the back row couch for naps and the bar table next to it for...

I did a lot of testing between the CV5000 and inuke 6000 and also the 3000 when I first bought my mains. It's true the 6000 and the CV 5000 both clipped at the same levels, or within a db, on the...

My friend that bought the other 4722 ended up going with all 3 4722's for his front 3 (which was nice, if neither of us wanted to keep them we would have to sell obviously).

Are you a buyers remorse kind of guy or do you enjoy what you bought and never give the money spend a second thought?

You can get chest punch feel at most bass frequencies if the spl is high enough. Not the really low stuff obviously though.

If you go 150 wide or larger you should be able to have the speakers behind the screen and they will still be pretty wide.

My screen is 158" diagonal (2:35:1). I think that means that it is 12' 3" wide, that could be an inch or two off though. My head is 10 feet from the screen in the front row.

I'm not good at coming up with that for GTG's.
