I'd recommend at least trying out the sub right next to the couch. Left side in the corner should work the best. Being nearfield you will get much more volume and impact at the same sub gain level so...

Only problem is, only the new models have enough masking range to do this. The older JVCs still require using a VP or anamorphic lens.

The shrink method (downscaling 16:9) is a great way to do CIH with a manual zoom projector. You can always manually zoom for a special occasion if you want the most brightness and quality possible....

Move your sub as close to your seating as possible (nearfield) so you can turn it down and still get decent volume/impact. It should also help if both your seating and sub are along a wall or...

This is true if you specify that both screens are 120" wide, not diagonal. In comparing these two screens, the big factor becomes seating distance. You might find that if you sit where you like a...

Since you watch mostly movies, it might be worth the extra complications of a 2.35 screen. You could try setting up a large makeshift screen and experimenting with different screen sizes, ARs and...

Yes, it works great for shrinking 16:9, is user friendly, and will also mask the black bar area for multi-AR movies. I'd recommend going this route over buying a cheap lens.

Although first I...

I watched Spectre today and noticed the same thing. It's almost like a strobe-light effect with flashes at regular intervals. Very obvious but not quite bad enough to make it unwatchable. Equipment...

Option 2 can work well if you center the projector horizontally so you don't need horizontal lens shift. In most cases, if you dial in the focus for 2.35:1, the focus should stay perfect when you...

Do you have any ballpark figures for the rejection you're getting in the common bass range, say 20-80hz? If not, I'd be very interested in what you find when you measure. I've been debating the idea...

Nice talking to you James, considering we have the same subs lol. You mentioned you had a chance to compare an XV30f to a Rythmik FV15HP. Care to post your thoughts?

This is my experience as well using a 103. It is still useful for some things but it would be nice if it filled the screen vertically. My impression is that it does on the 93. Can any 93 owners...

Yes, the standard model came with the base. Without the base it is about an inch lower so it fit better under my projection screen. The feet are the same ones the XV15 uses.

No thanks on a trade, sorry. I have 2 older subs I'm keeping so I'm not starved for bass. ;) It just made the most sense to sell these since they are newer and have so much warranty time left.
