So for the first time ever I heard distortion from my CS-8040HD. I was watching The Last Five Years with my girlfriend and when the male vocalist was singing very loudly the sound would audibly...

In my room, the 55s actually measured a flatter frequency response (via REW at my MLP) than the 65s and I would use either as mains as long as you have a good sub to blend.

Edit: I am using the...

I built my own masking for my current screen setup and am mostly intrigued by the monoprice screen due to the built-in masking. I assume that it will be much less of a hassle than the velcro system...

Let me know how assembly goes. Also, let me know how the screen itself is: most of the reviews are positive from what I've seen, but I'd like to know what another AVSer thinks.

I think the most interesting part was the talk about the sorting robot(s?) that open and clean etc. (Although, based upon some of the discs I've gotten, I'd hardly call them "clean"). I think I'd...

I only have 1 sub, but I use a miniDSP 2x4 for equalization and it works really well and was easy to learn. It also means that I won't need further equipment if (when, probably) I decide to get a...

I have 55s and highly recommend them. They actually measure a little bit flatter (away from walls) than my 65s, but that's in my space.

I have an 8040HD, and while it isn't perfect by any means, I think that any of those three would work (with preference given to another SM65 and probably the 8060HD before the 8040).

Cheaper solution might be a miniDSP 2x4 and a mic plus REW. Or one of the other standalone subwoofer equalizers and a mic plus REW.
