His theater is in a 2nd floor loft and that place gets all sorts of movements! It truly is an experience!!
Anyhow, subscribed and looking forward to your impressions once your horns are built.
Eric, you remember the difference of the bass between my front row and my second row riser. It is pretty significant. Almost everything I am down in my theater I consider just making the second row the MLP, but I still have yet to actually do it. Having a concrete floor, along with three of the 4 walls being concrete as well, there aint NOTHING moving in my theater which is good, but also bad. I really do wish I had more of that tactile feel though. Perhaps tonight I will move both rows up a shade, and make the 2nd row my MLP :chuckle chuckle:
Ive considered this too, but I choose instead to keep pursuing a system capable enough that I wont need it
My riser at the moment is just a 6" riser, and if I did make it the MLP, I would have to stilt it another 4" or so so viewing the screen, I would be able to see all the way over the front couch. My ceiling is drop ceiling with the HVAC running through it as well so I don't even think I have 8 feet to start with!!! Nonetheless, a 10" riser still keeps me at around 7 foot ceiling so that is not all too bad, and it is only for small section where the riser is, not the whole room.

What is Delta FL? I am interested! I have long considered doing something like a floating floor, it is certainly easier and takes up much less space than a riser.
