Honestly, I hated it for carpet, so I didn't put it in. It's great for something like a laminate floor or if you were to put OSB/plywood over it before carpet.

You've got the same problem I do.... Horror movies are rough with the doors behind you! I watched "The Ring" sideways with one eye on the door and one on the screen.

Chairs look good! Glad to hear the RF62II is working out.

Sounds good. I need to play with sub placement as my bass is a few feet in front of the seats or the rear of the room.

I must have mis-interpreted your pictures. Some of them showed it below your stage so I assumed you had used it for the entire theater floor. Did you not put it down after all? Or did you try it with the carpet and then pull it out because it didn't feel right? I'm really interested because I was strongly considering using it. What did you put down in its place?

I did lay it down under the stage as I was going to do the whole room. I like that it lifts the sand up a bit off the floor even though it is in plastic. Once the sand was down, I wasn't going to remove the Superseal, especially since I sealed the edges with Liquid Nails.

I originally was doing a laminte floor in the closet, but wasn't happy with the lumpy concrete, even after 'leveling' it. The Superseal did work very well under the laminate. I wasn't trusting enough to put it under carpet after I put the Superseal down. I pulled it up just before carpet went in.

The pad is resting directly on the concrete. It has a plastic coating on it to keep it from absorbing water though (and is the best pad I've ever walked on).

Winter weather is here, so I'll be finishing the last of the little "finishing" stuff on the theater and basement. For now, it's getting plenty of use! We just picked up a Kinect and it's pretty fun!

Yes, you too can look like some ratards!

I hope it plays well with a dark room and a projector! I want to get the sports game.

When do you guys want to come over? I'm not completely done, but it plays movies like it is!

Hey.. Can I ask how that All-In one floor worked out?

Does it make noise?

My floor isn't leval I know that already... There are old vinyl tiles on there that I wanted to leave and just go right over... I'm not that particular to leveling and all but, I do want to avoid mold..

Or is the leveling issue just going to kill it?


tks

I actually pulled it all out as the carpet was going in. I followed the instructions that the supplier gave me to run it all the way to the wall and put the carpet tacks through it. This is different than the instructions from the site.... I couldn't flatten it out and I wasn't comfortable with it even when following the manufacturers instructions, so I just laid the pad directly on the concrete. I was concerned with feeling the plastic underneath and having it push up on the carpet.

I can't really give any advice as if it were to work well installed per the manufacturer's notes, but when I laid it under laminate floor, it was awesome IF I could get the floor COMPLETELY level. I could not do that where I was (easily) so I just used carpet through the entire basement.

Personally, I think this would work best with laminate/wood floors or for carpet if you used some plywood or OSB over top of it. For the latter, I think there are better options.

This is IMHO and YMMV.

They did make a SVO Mustang during the years of 1984-1986. Here's a link to a SVO site.

YamahaSHO - Love your build!!!

Yup, SVO's are pretty cool. I've got a buddy up in Colorado that has a pretty nice one he's building up. He's also the guy that rebuilt my trans in the SHO to handle the extra power a little better.

I tried to do some screen shots today, but the point and shoot I used didn't turn out too well. I'll have to break out the DSLR here soon.

Screen Shots look fine.
That's a nice model reproduction of that Yamaha (I mean Ford) V6

Screen shots look good. I have never seen Avatar. Everyone seems to like it, maybe someday I'll watch.

I generally don't watch these type if movies, but after I watched about 30 minutes of it at Scott's (W00lly) house, I had to finish it. It is a pretty good movie; I've watched it a few times now.
post #260 of 409
I generally love sci-fi movies, but for some reason this one has no appeal to me. Maybe I can blame George Lucas and his evil Jar Jar Binks for making me shy away from films like this.
post #261 of 409
Haven't been on the forum for a while but it looks like you have made some good progress. Have you seen The Hurt Locker. If not it's a great movie for a home theater. It will give those Klipsch a good work out. ..... I might have to go watch that movie now.

Yup, I've seen it. It's a good movie. I need to stop watching movies and playing games on it and finish it. Last night a buddy and I nearly pulled an all-nighter on Gran Turismo 5.

Just wait till we get to watch this in our theaters. Make sure you change the rez to 720p and watch in full screen I do believe I will be going to see this in IMAX when it comes out.

I'm going to wait until you get it on BD. I say that as it's not necessarily a movie I would watch, but you've shown me a few that I didn't think I'd like, but loved.

Thanks, I get both PC12-NSD's tomorrow!


With that said, I could use some thoughts... I've been searching, but wouldn't mind some opinions on my setup. Now that I've ditched the Klipsch subs, I do have two SVS PC12-NSD's due to arrive tomorrow. Both of these subs will be up front behind the screen/screen wall. I recently acquired a new Klipsch RW-12d woofer (thread) and will be building a sonosub out of it just because I have always wanted to build one.

With the Klipsch 12" sono, I was planning on putting the sub at the rear-corner of my room with an Outlaw wireless deal. The SVS up front will be run off of a single Anti-Mode 8033c (which works great, BTW). Would it be worth it to invest in a second Anti-Mode for the rear sub and calibrate it separately, or would I need something that can account for both the SVS and sono playing together? My thought was if I can calibrate them separately, they may play 'better' with each other. Any thoughts?

Both the SVS and Klipsch sono use 12" woofers of comparable power handling and the cabinets will be roughly the same size.

Jason,
I will be watching your thread closely for your impressions of the new PC12-NSDs. Will also be interested to hear your impressions with 3 cylinders in your room.

I am awaiting the shipment of a 16-46 PC+, this will supplement the 2, 20-39's I am already running. Configuration I will try is: 2 up front and one centered in the rear.

SVS said for me to place the subs right next to each as they sound best there of coarse I placed the on both ends of the room as that seemed best to MY thinking but Jack @ SVS was right they sounded Best right next to each other
one thing SVS will do for you is that if U send them a layout of your room they will tell where best to place the subs that's what I did ,PLUS they can advise on the setup of the Antimode 8033c save Ya self time for more Movies !
L O L

Keep up the great work & MORE PIX plz !

I suppose if I don't agree with you, my MAN-card will be revoked?

You do have a point

They just came in and I unboxed them. I'm letting them warm up to room temp until I power them up. I will have to build my 3rd sub soon. I need to order a router bit and circle jig so I can make my circles. I won't be able to put the rear sub in the center of the back wall, so I'll play with corner placement on both sides.

Are you talking about collocating them for more output? I had output before, just dead spots in the room, plus the Klipsch made all kinds of weird noises with there plastics.

The 8033 literally sets itself up, what did SVS advise with yours, assuming you have one?

Do you have a picture of your setup?

Here's a quick iPhone pic. I will be installing LinAcoustic today.
