So you went to bed with a 10 and woke with a 2 ..I remember that from my college days.. That is what we are talking about right??? There is no shame in that...happened to all of us at some point in our lives tongue.gif

You can watch the entire concert in HD on youtube (at least you could last I checked) and this new Blu-Ray is so much better than any concert disk I've ever seen/heard.... by a lot. Hmm you don't get Dyers Eve though, but that's on the Mexico disk.

So Carp, did you dig Through the Never?

Gentlemen. We have lift off is an understatement...like -30 below reference understatement. This setup with dual shifters will put a grown man into a fetal position and make him suckle his thumb. I am looking over my shoulder as if I am the hunted. Seriously powerful.

I'll be in my dungeon for the rest of the day cool.gif

And the award for review brevity goes toooo....

asoofi1!

Glad you like'm. It is a great speaker. There's simply no replacement for effortless dynamics. I assure you that the experience you're having will continue long after the newness wears off.

Congrats

Have fun man.

When my wife felt the entire couch rumble she was hooked. smile.gif. So she'll help figure out a solution before complaining about the subs.

Oh man.. unbelievable!!

The thought never occured to me that it would be in 2:35:1- YES!!!



Here's a pic, 158 inches diagonal - seriously, it was like being at the concert from my front row couch, this pic is from the 2nd row:








As incredible as the picture was it paled in comparison to the sound! My god the sound!!

I loved it in the theater, but JTR's for the win!! I was told this morning that I had the volume too loud - that NEVER happens, usually my wife doesn't hear anything - or it doesn't bother her anyway. When people say metal can't sound good, I'll just pop in this disk. Unreal. The theater did beat my room for 3D, I don't have that yet and the 3D was really well done in the theater.


However, I did get frustrated while watching. When I would get up and move around the room the bass went from tight and dialed in to bloaty and crappy as I moved around the room. Of course I knew this was already the case to a certain extent and have measurments from all the seats that show how much the freq changes. However, it was never as evident to me as it was last night.


So..... frustration with uneven bass + snow day + a few too many phone calls to Archaea trying to figure out the inuke = tearing my room apart to experiment with sub placement. Right now i have subs as end tables, subs stacked by the bathroom and 4 subs up front.

Lots more experimenting to do.... good thing schools already been cancelled tomorrow.














Oh yeah, Dave in answer to your question:

Asim, when you can pry yourself away from your system I'd love to get more impressions of the OS's (and since I'm being push, more pics too!!) biggrin.gif

I need impressions of the distributed bass response STAT carp biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Asim, I need impressions from you too or I won't be sending you your webcam back.....Haha, leverage biggrin.gif

My 4 year old daughter happened by while I had this thread pulled up - she immediately asked if that was Kayla and Elise in the snow picture? (not sure on spelling?) Ha. she recognized them in the snow suites.

Hmm well i managed to get a much more even response across the seats with the configuration you see in the pictures. At first the response was very similar to the 8 up front but then I played with the delay on the rear subs - which makes no sense to me since the rear subs are the same distance from me as the front subs so you would think the delay should be the same??

I tweaked the delay on the inuke (the inuke is powering the 2 rear subs, the CV has the front 4 on one channel and the 2 end tables on the other channel) while I kept moving the omnimic from seat to seat and the result that gave the most similar response from all seats was 10 feet of delay added to the rear subs. Like I said, this makes no sense to me.

I'm listening to some music, and it sounds much more even across the room, but I have a lot more placements I want to try.


This is the front row sweet spot compared to the middle of the couch on the second row, much closer than they were before. No eq or L/T at all so far. The black is the sweet spot and red is the 2nd row couch








The sound from the main LP is nice, but not as good as before but like I said I haven't eq'd yet. Still, it is nice to get up and not get boomy bass as I move around the room. I think I can make it better it I find a new spot for the end table subs, they really aren't doing anything to the frequency response and I'm not getting a ton of tactile feel unless I face the drivers towards me and then the right side is exaggerated so that's no good.






this next comparison is from the sweet spot only, the black line is the response with all 8 subs up front like I had and the 2nd is how I have the subs now in the pics. Again, no eq or L/T in either graph. I don't like how I'm loosing a lot of db's in the teens with this new configuration, but that's the trade-off for smoother response throughout the room.

How do you hear or feel your phone. When I have my system turned up, I can't hear or feel my phone vibrate. smile.gif

Well, after some re-arranging of the HT because I was bored tonight, I've now got a back wall of 8 x 21's facing the sofa, instead of the side walls..... So far, i'm liking it, even though I have to loose the G-horn because there is no room, it's not like I was using even close to the 21's power anyways.. Feels and sounds good.

BTW, the center Jeff mad me is superb! It was a nice step up vs the Q8s I had before, The general tone of the speakers is VERY close to the Noesis's I already have.... I'd also have to say the 10's hit great. I'm diggin' it for sure!

Insanity. It's overwhelming even at low volumes. I still need to mess with all settings and get these two bouncer looking mothaf...watch yo mouth...dialed in, but initial plug and play was a combo knockout sucker punch to the face by Mike Tyson and his biological mother, bless her soul.

When Audessey started its initial setup, it asked to set volume knobs on the subs to mid level. Apparently Audessey didn't realize how many fat people were showing up to the buffet. It sends a low signal...the walls vibrated with waves and I think I heard all of the 2x4s in the house walls wake up and scream. On screen, XT32 blinked bloody murder and told me I had set the sub's too high. No sh!t Sherlock...YOU told me to set to medium. I had read someone mention to start xt32 with 0 on the OS dial, but I couldnt resist following xt32's directions like a good boy just to see what happens. So I turned both gorillas down to zero and continued with the calibration. Then it trys to the level test and its getting 105-110db. She asks me to please make it stop, and I just tell her, sorry, its not me...its you. We're already at zero, so I skip to the next steps and complete the calibration. Right now, I'm going thru the avr options, and the subs are set at -12db...the lowest setting possible. This is the lfe crossover she wants to set it at...but I changed it to 80hz:


So I don't know how to tame the shifters yet and I can see it won't be easy to break them. I'm now going to listen to some stuff...slapmyselfforsayingit...by turning one os off and hearing what happens.

And for your viewing pleasure:

So that's where it went...maybe you should put it to some good use and Ustream from your ht and give us a tour of the new toys you just got...instead of doing other nefarious things with my poor innocent webcam tongue.gif
post #15719 of 18374
That's hilarious Asim! Very nice.

You don't tame OS's, you hope they don't kick you out of your own room. smile.gif
post #15720 of 18374
I love this thread.
Reading first impressions as well as those with (some )mileage.

Seems like the JTRs not only start off that way but keep on amazing.cool.gif
