Sitting here smoking my cigar and catching up on this thread. Tempting. I'm always experimenting and this is well within budget. May just have to make a purchase or three.

This one can be bought on Vudu for $8 now if anyone is interested. Couple of bucks more than renting. I bought it. Will watch later. If it's not good I'll start a gofundme for my $8.

If everyone was talking about the S1801 would it reinforce your decision? ;) If I had an S1801 I sure as hell wouldn't second guess it.

I remember when my wife and I started the last one on Netflix. We were in the bed doing what married couples do under the sheets. I was on my tablet, she was on her phone. She eventually fell...

Any guess on how this will sound at home? Did any movie goers hear the sweet promises of creamy low frequencies in the track?

Just depends on the room. What looks coolest and seems the best isn't always the correct way to set up multiple subs. My opinion, REW or another way to measure things is a must. Not even optional....

While that certainly makes it easier, you can successfully integrate two dissimilar subs if you know how and the room cooperates with you (two big "if's").

I know a few years ago you could order HGS plate amps for much cheaper than I expected. I had to replace the amp in an HGS 18. This is assuming the amp is bad in yours.

A lot of the lack in mid bass people mention is not due to the speakers, but rather the room and the inability to turn them up due to the high frequencies bouncing around and reinforcing each other,...

You just brought back memories. Huge smile on my face as I felt the air move the first time I watched it. God I miss that Acoustimass module.

I'm being forced to watch Armageddon by my wife. Harry Stamper is talking about blowing a tranny. That's pretty racy for 1998.
