A couple of 3 dB boosts shouldn't hurt anything, especially if they're not wide Q boosts. With...

If you look cloesely, it's almost all cuts. The only boosts look to be at about 18 Hz and 63 Hz, and they loom like just 3 dB. The rest are all 6 to 8 dB cuts. Overall, he's probably reduced the...

That little dip at 80...

7.1 could work fine in your room. With a 20' room depth, and your seating at 13', you'd have 7' behind you for rear surrounds. They would "work" just fine. Having said that, at your pricepoint, I...

Alan,

It would be easy for you to add 2 more drivers at 60 Hz in your current system. You have Klipschorns, right? They'll easily do 60 Hz. Instead of crossing them at 80 Hz, try 60, or 50 or...
