OK, Guys, Bandit Here and it is April 19th 2014:D. I'm bring this thread back to life:cool:
, and first let me say THANKS for all your hard work and pictures! That helped a bunch!
OK So here is my Room (20 x 17), looks great, had relatively cheap stuff in it since 2007, btu was happy with it for $$$ per performance. Anyway, Quickly here is the GEAR I just ordered and will be here next week.
-Replacing front 3 In-Wall Polk RC 85i Speakers with Emp Tek Large Tower on each side of my screen and a Large Emp Tek Center.
-Have an Epson 3D 6030UB on the way to replace my 720P Mitsubishi HC1500
-Denon AVR-X4000 on the way replacing Onkyo TR-705
- 2 Rythmik FV15HP Subs (Plan to put in each front corner)
(Never used my sub, it sucked and didn't work right)
Question for Today[/B]/U]
Ordered 4 Aura Rumblers from Parts Express 2 days ago, already on the way! ($42 each)
Ordered 4 more Aura's and a 250 Watt Dayton Plate Sub Amp
The next morning (Today!) Cancelled 4 Extra Auras & 250 Watt Dayton Audio Sub Plate AMP
-I decided to go bigger and SKIP the Auras after reading several reviews of folks who had BOTH. So, I Ordered 4 Clark TST209 ($89 each)
I will be getting Both sets of 4, Aura and Clark, so I can test out both, but I think I already KNOW that the Clarks are a superior product: Hit Lower, Liuder, Cleaner, better mounting hardware included, etc.
So, did I make a Good Choice? You guys seemed to have a Love/Hate relationship with these things, saying the bugged you, but in some ways were the best. I realize I am generalizing here.
Again, I can test out BOTH Brands on my 4 Media Chairs, but WHY? Not counting Price, the Clark TST209 should be better right? I wish they had the same connections as the Aura:rolleyes: Those 2 short ass wires are a joke.
What Amp should I get? That Dayton Audio 250 Watt Subwoofer Plate Amp for $125? When I called Parts Express the guy said I could go with a 500 way Amp???? Again, NOT turn it up all the way.
I just want some guys to chime in (2014) and let me know if I am making a good decision with the Clarks??? I was going to put 2 Auras in each seat:D BUT, for approximately double the price, and double the output, I can just get ONE Clark.
Any Comments, Advice, Amp Choice, hook up Help is appreciated.
Oh ya, here is my room. I painted, hung projector, put speakers in the wall, took off door frame flipped doors around so they open OUT (more room inside the room), and built my 117' X 68" screen.
