Finally some pics! Please take a look and I would love any advice or feedback on the configuration. This is my first major theater setup. The room is an "L" shape with the theater portion being 12' W x 27' L and then the other portion of the basement being 11' W x 12' L. The projector is a Mitts HD1000, and screen is 100". The listening position is 12' back from the screen.
Those coffee bags on the front wall are sound panels I built using a core material from a local vendor. The OMD-15's are not yet in their final resting place, but they are about 2 feet from the back and side walls somewhat per the Mirage instructions.
I was also wondering, for all of you have that a C1 center, how do you point them in this position? and by angling down, do you mean the "Mirage" badge on the front is facing more downward toward the floor? I know it's different for every person's configuration, but sometimes the voices seem so very faint during movies.
The Emotiva UMC-1 (driving an XPA-5) was an upgrade from a Denon AVR-791. Incredible difference! I have not been impressed yet with the room correction on the UMC-1, but I also added the wood floor (replaced 70's carpet) at the same time I upgraded to the processor/amp configuration. I have heard that placement of the sound panels is critical with the Mirage omnipolar speakers. Bluvette had good advice about placement around the 15's, but how should I place them around my surround speakers?
The sub is an Outlaw LMF 1-EX. Tron: Legacy is my favorite movie to demo for people, especially the light cycle battle. There is bass that I cannot hear, but I can feel the couch shaking! How do people think the placement of sub affects the OMD-15? I'm thinking moving it closer to the wall will make the speaker sound bigger? (please forgive my novice terminology).
Two more of the sound panels I built out of the coffee bags. I need to make something in the ballpark of 20 more of that size to really start making a difference with the echo in the room. I also need to get or build some bass traps. The vendor Bluvette recommended has very reasonable prices, so I may go that route.
The right OMD-15, with my old sub (some 12" one I grabbed from a closing circuit city). I don't have any specs on the sub, but I hope to try and use it with the Outlaw.
I have OS3-Sat's for my side surrounds. I only got them over the OMD-5's because the OS3's were on sale. I kind of regret it since I now want the OMD-5's, but they appear hard to come by.
I have two Omnican-55's coming in the mail for rear surrounds to make it a 7.1 system. I acquired an Onkyo M-282 amp to drive them (started running out of $$$). Should the rear surrounds be the same distance from the ears of the listener as the side surrounds?
Thanks for looking!
