Cypress, CA?

After you added the Lumagen to your 92840, do you still feel it is light challenged?

I'm sure the CC screen 82" is brighter than the previous generation, but have you seen the hybrid screen 82? It's easier to find 82842s than 82840s in my area.

Clear Contrasted versus Hybrid

Can anyone on this thread opine as to the differences between the WD82840 and WD82842? The latter has the so-called "hybrid" screen, whereas the earlier model as the Clear Contrast. Has anyone...

That's quite an impressive viewing angle. It's a 82840, so it's Clear Contrast. There must be some 82842 owners out there who can comment!

My point at he beginning of this discussion was that the sub was being pushed too hard in some way, with too much demand in the lower bass.
