Anyone have any suggestions for some minimal lighting for my batcave? Walls and ceiling and much of the floor are velvet, so even with the one ceiling light on -- a recessed baffle trim, with a 45w...

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I just got these mounts and installed the first one only to find it barely tilts at all. I just want my rear speakers around 2 feet above my head and angled down at...

No kidding, I had just gone back to that tab as I was closing all the tabs for other speakers I was considering, and just happened to hit refresh before closing it.

Just hit refresh on the Sonys on Amazon and WorldWideStereo has them, new, for $108, fulfilled by Amazon, so that is too good to pass up. I'll be sending back the Daytons. Guess this means I need the...

Yes, I tested them as just a stereo pair with music. I do suspect I wouldn't notice much if any difference as surrounds, especially after a decade or more of these HTIB 2oz plastic cubes I've been...

I did a quick switch to A/B the Daytons and Sonys again. Not only do the Sonys sound much fuller, they are much louder at the same volume. I'm sure the port has something to do with it.

I'm thinking maybe the Cantons would have been the way to go, and I guess I better think hard these next few days! But it still seems a bit overkill to get something that would be a quality bookshelf...

I got the Dayton AIRs and swapped them for my Sony Core SC5s in the living room just to try out some music and see if I could even notice the difference. Hoo boy did I. I think they sound awful....

I think I'm going with the Dayton AIRs. Price is right and reviews are stellar, and I figure I'll just swap them into another room as basic bookshelves down the line if I want to try something else. ...

Those could be a contender, but I definitely need all black.

Out of curiosity, have you heard the Dayton B652-AIR, or only the original B652?

Thanks for the quick response! I did think of Dayton first, actually. Obviously these would be a huge upgrade over what I have now, but would I get a noticeable improvment from going up to $100/pair...

Thanks! All three, or just Sy and Joann?



Thanks. The whole front 2/3 of my theater is covered in Joann Royalty 3. I just need a few more yards for the subwoofer and speaker stands.

Is there a way in the menus to simply disable one or more speakers? Like so I can isolate the sub for measurement and calibration with REW?
