Never tried it. I have 4 separate feeds, one for each woofer from the BassQ, so I'd have needed to use 4 transmitters. Now if I were running 4 subs from the same signal, the wireless would make a nice virtual Y adapter--one transmitter could feed them all.

Ahh...forgot about the BassQ being in the chain. I've been thinking of getting the dual subs and using the wireless for at least one of them (maybe both depending on position in the room), but the WAF of having 2 subs in the room isn't going over very well. It will take some time to break her spirit

Awesome room Roger! A home theater for the audiophile. Nice to see speakers out in the room where they sound best. Nice to see you choose ergonomic/comfortable not over stuffed seats with a low back for best sound.

Do you use the subs for two channel music listening?

Thanks much--you see right through me!

Absolutely. Even in straight stereo playback, the SSP is doing bass management and EQ.

This room is almost exactly the same size as the room in the house I'm buying that I'm planning on making my theater space. How wide are your aisles?

30" from the armrest edge to the wall before treatments.

Roger,

After your comment on my quest, I noticed this link. I agree with all the other posters here: this is a wonderfull room you made here! Looks good and I am sure it sounds good too.

Happy to reed that you got the 4 subs performing well without rattling the entire house apart. Mine are tuned to 13 Hz, but not yet finished. I am also waiting for Behringer to bring the iNUKE 6000 class D amp they announced.

I do have the option to use in-ceiling as L&R surround, but I prefer normal speakers even if it means them being at 110° rather than 90 or 100°. I think...

Thanks! "All the children are above average" which is simply to say everyones' theaters sound good according to their owners--and I'm in that camp!

If the positioning is the tradoff to use normal speakers, I heartily agree with you.

Very nice Theater Roger, well thought out acoustic plays a key role in the sound and it looks like you nicely engineered the room

Excellent HT room Roger. Roger

This is a gorgeous HT! It really makes me miss my Santos Aerial 7Bs though!

Love this room and the gear. Beautiful work. Im going to have speakers behind the screen but will also have a pair of speakers out in the room for stereo listening.

Thanks for the bump. There's been no hardware changes since the Hsu Quad Pack was installed.

The PEQ tuning went through a dramatic change earlier this year when I had the chance to audition the Datasat AP20 with Dirac Live EQ. I liked the results so I mimicked the curves in the SSP-800’s PEQ. Mimic may be too strong a word, considering the very “low rez” curve from the PEQ. But the results were great. What I need to do next is run the same 8 Dirac mic positions using REW to see if I could have possibly come to a similar PEQ conclusion without the Dirac box. I had never tried sampling 8 locations before. Actually 9 for the AP20.

Can read more about it in this post.

An example of the PEQ curve fitting is shown here. Green curve is Dirac electrical response, and violet curve is the SSP PEQ curve I made. These are the corrective EQs, not the acoustic result.



Aside from that, we (and often our neighbors) just enjoy it.

Hi Roger

Did you ever get around to do that test?

All the speakers are listed in post 2. Google can best answer the rest.

Nice!!

I used to have a Classe 201 but sold it to someone in the States on Audiogon, about 10 years ago.

I noticed you also have an Anthem processor in addition to the Classe SSP - do you have two theaters?

No, I have never had any Anthem processor. It was in on my short list when I was finishing the theater, but I wanted more flexibility in the EQ, and less in the video, so went with the SSP-800.

Oh right. Well nice of you to check on us once in a while over at the Anthem thread. smile.gif

Someday I hope to hear a D2v in a nice system to get a sense of what ARC does.

Hey Roger, I've got a room (or rather will in a few months) almost like yours, any change I could get a photo from the screen looking back towards the seats ?

Do these work?

As you can see, the rear wall has windows (as does the front). I had 2" acoustic panels made to fit.

Coll great idea, who made them for you? Do you think Maggie's would be good surround sound speakers?

AcousticsFirst. Beveled, hardened edges.

T'would not be my choice to use their larger ones in a room where they couldn't breath. Several feel of clearance to walls. If the smaller ones, check they will play low enough, like a solid 80 Hz. Do you prefer them over more conventional surrounds?

I was looking at their entry level Maggie, 60 day money back guarantee and $600! I will call them on Monday and see. In the mean time I hooked up the two 802Ds with Y XLR So I have two surround channels on each side in 5.2 and I hooked up my in ceiling B&W 7 NT for the 7.2 it sounds amazing smile.gif

Could I be making a mistake to sell the 802Ds!

Love the comments on this theater. Inspirational in the attention to detail, colors, and design.

I noticed that many of the posts on the first page refer to pictures that don't seem to be there anymore. I am logged in so I should be able to see them, but I don't even see broken links. For example the whole first 30 posts there is the picture in the first post and later a picture of your CAD drawing of the soffits. Did the pictures go somewhere?

UPDATE: I can see all the pictures now. I think it was some weird public wi-fi I was using to blame.
