I don't own the 1030, but I researched it and the 3030 quite a bit and my recommendation is to go to the Onkyo site and download the manual. The preamps are small output connectors that take coax...

The 1030 has preamp for 7.1.4. It doesn't have the both overheads. You'll need an external amp to run the back two overheads if you have an old amp with pre iins you can run the back overheads...

For some reason the PM won't go through from my BlackBerry. If you could wait until tonight I'll send from home. My gubmint computer won't let me log into many forums.

Well, if'n you're in need of a break and interested in coming 40minutes east, I could have some cold ones waiting and would love to show you my theater. Some expert critiquing would be appreciated.

I would recommend unobstructed views in a home theater. Having said that, there can only be a small area that is perfect for picture and sound. That's my seating position :) How often you have a full...

Tear the house down and start over ;) Since it's bothering you, I would remove the caulk, remove the cabinet and remount it. Score the caulk with a utility knife. It may or may not damage the wall....

I tried my projector out on a flat brown wall and also thought it looked pretty good. You brought back memories of my build;).

I have a similar size man cave garage. I hung a pair of LaScala splits from the ceiling. I have no issues with rocking out or playing classical with those. I'd supply pics, but I'm at work right now....

Is your projector near a heat source such as a vent? If the heat comes on and blows any heated air towards the projector it will prevent proper cooling and it will shut down. I had to move mine due...

For my theater, I used the Ralph Lauren suede. It is lighter than a typical theater paint and the suede texture is pretty good at NOT reflecting light. While it's one of my man caves, it has a high...

Wow. I've worked at death and destruction most of my adult life. To disconnect and enjoy some childish, silly movies (sci-fi or not) is not something I'll be ashamed of. :cool:

I would question having the sofa so far back. 65" TV from 18 ft will not be, IMO, as good of an experience as for say 9-10 ft. Moving up will give room for rear speakers in a 7.1 system. If the...
