It's disappointingly similar to the 515 which has been out for a while. They doubled brightness while keeping CR the same, which is something, but how many people passed on the 515 because 15,000...

I am going to give Harman the benefit of the doubt that they know how to optimize a room using multiple subs.

My concern was with DSP based EQ. There are different algorithms. Some of those...

Yeah, I probably should have just got the JBL subs. They had 4 x 18" spec'd for my room, sitting in corners to maximize room gain. They are passive subs - no amps or DSP in them. But my budget for...

Just over 7000 ft^3. After I posted that, I asked a couple of Pros on the forum and they thought I would be ok with 3 x f113. I picked up a 4th for good measure.

It looks like it's also cheaper than bridging multiple SDA 4600 to drive their subs. 2 x $4,500 SDA 4600 briged to 1200wpc was too much for me. Then add subs. $5,500 + subs puts it inline with the...

That's my issue, not wanting to tear into the soundproof shell to install a sub panel, run new wire, and outlets. I can plug an isolation transformer into the 240v and get 50amps @ 120v available...

What are you guys using in terms of AC power? In my case:

3 x M2 = 3,600w
8 x 705/708 = 2,400w
4 x JL f113 = 8,000w
projector = 1200w max
AVM60 + SDEC = 100w

That's 15,300 watts max on the...

It is the 3 wires, as you said: black, red, white, and bare copper.

I was thinking of getting this step down transformer from TripLight. It is ~$1,000 from almost anywhere.

To be fair, they should have tested by "length class". HDMI seems to have problems as the length goes up. It's good to know $5 Monoprice works if you need 10' or less, but I would put money on the...

The outside box that connects to power grid is 400amp. The 2 inside panels are 100amp each, I believe.
