Watch a movie like Fury Road with bass shakers and then without. Believe you me, you'll never want to watch a film with a good LFE track without TT ever again.

Be sure to install isolators on all the legs. You'll want all the energy contained. I have the small ones and they're fine.

I have two ADX Maximus bass shakers in my HT sofa. It's one of the best purchases I've made for the home theater. Make sure you install rubber isolators under the feet to keep from losing energy to...

I suppose I could use a channel, paint it to closely match the wall color, and then apply it to the wall. If I did that I'd want to have the thinnest one possible and about 6 or 7 feet in length,...

Some of them can be very pricey. I opted for the ADX Maximus which were much more affordable and still provide an awesome kick.

That's what I have and love it. Screen gain is 1.0. If you can control the ambient light it's best to run the projector in ECO mode to prolong the lamp life.
