UPDATED - 1/10/13 - Finally did something about the white outlets. I took the extremely lazy way out. I had some GIK 244 traps that I no longer use and covered up the outlets. I have to admit my motivation was so I'd stop getting the suggestion to change my outlets to black or paint them, but I do find that I really like the all black look up front.
UPDATED - 12/23/12 - bought some new speakers - JTR Noesis Left, Right, and Center. Sold my eD Cinema 12's LRC to Archaea.
LOVE these speakers. Quite an over the top investment for me, but I think I'll have these for life.
Also bought the stands from JTR.
-edit- why do the links show and not the actual pictures?? Oh well, I'll post pics at the end of the thread too. Here is a link to the post with the above pics:
UPDATED - 9/9/12 - added pics and the end of the post, I recently upgraded to 7.1 from 5.1.
This is my escape from the girls. Hey, I love my wife and daughters (3 and 6 years old), but it's great to have my "own room".
We've lived in the house for 10 years, originally it was 2 rooms. I was super motivated when we moved in and I immediately tore down the wall to make it one big room. It used to have a drop ceiling which was a rattle nightmare, now that I have drywall I'm down to hardly any rattles.
Speakers: Elemental Designs Cinema Series - 12's for front and center, 6" rears
Subwoofers: Seaton Submersives
Receiver: Pioneer Elite vsx 53
Sub eq: Velodyne SMS-1
Blu-Ray Player: Panasonic something or other.... I need to upgrade.
Projector: Epson 8350
Bass Traps: GIK Tri Corner traps, 2 in each corner.
Here is the bass freq response. The higher line is program 2 on the Submersive, the lower line is program 1. Program 2 is supposed to give a 3db boost down low, looks like that's the case.
Above is after using the sms-1. I need to find the graph with the speakers on...
UPDATE - 9/9/12 - went from 5.1 to 7.1. I kept the original surrounds speakers in the back and they are now the rear surrounds and bought 2 new speakers for the side surrounds. I love the results. All speakers are eD Cimema 6".
I moved the subwoofers to one corner stacked and made some speaker stands for the speakers
