Bah... so much for having subs ready tonight. It occurred to me that there's no half-way finishing a vented sub with a flared port. Once it's in, it's in. Probably for the best though. This way...

eh, I don't think I'll be able to stand having them sitting there like that for very long. I rent out two of the rooms and the area that the subs will be in is the epicenter of the house. I can...

I'm trying like hell to get my new subs finished before Fury Road comes out tomorrow. I've never had to do so serious bracing in a large ported sub before, much less two. That took FOR-EV-ER. Then...

I'm currently using that exact same set-up (FP set-up as FH and RP setup as overhead) and, before getting the 3050, had the 2040 set-up in a 7.1.2 configuration and now my "overheads" definitely...

Don't know if it's because of an upgrade to the Yamaha or the Harmony but my Harmony hub can control the 3050 over wi-fi.

Comparing the Yamaha DSP on the straight 7.1 track to the Atmos decoded version was about as much of a no-brainer as you'd expect. The HD3 DSP may be amazing at pulling the height of the soundfield...

I don't know about 11 channels, assuming you mean of amplification. I personally wouldn't want all 11 in one amp, much less a receiver's amp, anyways. I imagine we'll get more and more...

Whaaaa? I had no idea the scenes had that much customizability (<--why are you not a word?!). That'll be nice for comparing different sound modes.

What kind of speakers are we talking here? In-walls that have a built-in sub? Or are you talking about a stand-alone sub?

Weird. I seem to recall a setting on the 2040 to have power for the USB port either only on when the AVR was on or on all the time. Though I can't recall if that was only for the rear USB port,...
