The Purple Theater - Page 3

You really are crazy. I can't imagine the SPL in that area from the subs.

The SPL is quite high, but I really haven't measured it after I got 3 of that Plus/2.

I have placed an order for 2 x PB13/Ultra and 2 x PC13/Ultra, so I will probably measure the SPL when I get those. It isn't very important, as long as it sounds clean and tight (which is the goal, more subwoofers = more headroom and more accuracy)

By the way; I have got myself a decent rack for the components, so it actually looks's a little bit cleaner in front.

The most impressing for me isn't the SPL from the subwoofer's, but from the center speaker. 100 dB/watt sensitivity, and a internal amplifier on 250 watt makes the shooting in Open Range a physical experience I've never heard anywhere else (you can include the top models from Revel, JBL, Focal, etc.) The driver is a 12"

I have to say your system is damn amazing. I wish I could visit your theater.

That has to be one of the best theaters in the world man! What do you do for a living?
post #66 of 109
I have seen thousands of theaters in the past few years, this addiction causes us to seek out every last one on earth. Yours my friend is in my top 5 favorites. I love the "euro" look and you have put together one awesome room.

I'm guessing he's a professional photographer. The pics of the theater are stunning. (The theater itself ain't so bad either. )

The speakers with HORNS ON THEM like the devil coming out. It looks amazing but almost scary. I would be afraid to be down there alone.

Stunning absolutely stunning. Not sure if you should be in AV mags or Horror Mags. IM talking about those front speakers. They look like their ready to attack.

Thanks guys.

I work as a reviewer and photographer for a Norwegian magazine called Hjemmekino, which means Home Theater in English. I also work as a wedding photographer.

The horns looks mean, but really, they are not. Quite dynamic doe, but with the right kind of amp and preamp it’s a perfect speaker for both music and movies.

Hey akto!

I love your theatre, its my role model for mine.

(I also have a basement thats near impossible to convert, but getting there!)

I love the seating, and the rear projection idea, and the speakers, and... and... ALL OF IT!

(except one thing)

The Asus P4P800-E Deluxe, did it die yet? Me, a friend, and a friend of my friend, all had the same motherboards, and we all had the same problem. It became evil and a PITA to work with! I just wouldnt expect one to be working a couple years later!

Otherwise the rest is A1! Love it!
post #73 of 109
Also what do you use for a camera, I would die to be able to get pro photos like that! Whats your secret as well
post #74 of 109
All I can say is WOW!! Oh and that I am ashamed of my system now.
post #75 of 109
Extremely nice rig, akto!

I have visited this room a few times, and I can assure you all that it sounds as good as it looks

Now, I know there are some changes going on regarding the speaker setup, so expect some rather crazy pictures in a while!
post #76 of 109
I know for sure that a lot has happened in Aktos HT recently. Maybe he will update you guys himself?
Fun to see your setup in here
post #77 of 109
sannathx, thanks for bumping this! Very impressive!!!!
post #78 of 109
akto,

That is a highly impressive room and system! What an amazing change from the raw state of the room. That 'couch' and the matching chairs are absolutely beautiful. Those are my favorite home theater seats ever. The speakers are, of course, incredible, but seem to be in a constant state of flux.
post #79 of 109
What a fantastic room! Wish i could have a room like this I love everything about it from how clean the whole install is to your seating and all the equipment. Thanks for sharing!

Sorry for not updating this tread for a long time.

I use a Canon EOS 5D, with various lenses. The picture of the screen is taken with the EF 17-40mm f/4.0. The secret is just photoshop

I will post some better pictures soon, but I haven't really had a chance to take them yet.

Do anybody know which kind of speakers this is? (and keep quiet you Norwegian ignorants ) It's actually a big step up from the Avantgarde Duo ...

Very very nice! I use a 5D myself and must compliment you on some very well taken shots Though i cannot guess the speakers.. but is that screen material dark grey? Almost blends in with the walls and looks fantastic.

I know the frontspeakers are full active. A little unsure about the center, but think it's the same.
Have not heard them myself, but the guys who have are stunned

The speakers are from a German company called ADAM Audio. The front and center speakers are from the Tensor series, and is called Tensor Beta and Tensor Center.

The Beta's are fully active 5-way speakers with 5 in-build amps (5x350W). The Center is a 4-way fully active with the same amplification (4x350W). The front speakers have another sub driver (11") on the back side. The dynamic drivers on the Center is 2 x 9". The tweater and midrange are Heil modified A.R.T drivers.

Retail price (in Norway) is 32.000 USD for Beta and 8.400 USD for the Center.

Hello Atko.



The title of the post....., Your system is exactly that! Oh my God, Man!
When I first saw your state of the art theater room, with the huge horn-type speakers, I was amazed with the attention to detail and attributed the mind-boggling images to having an excellent camera!

But, I was missing the target with that observation. You could have taken the photos with a 1.3 megapixel camera, and your system would still look outrageous!

With all of the speaker change outs, and you've had some awesome speakers in that lovely room, are Adam Audio's satisfactory? Do they at least meet your expectations or do you think you will become bored within 3 months and find another obscure obscenely expensive speaker system to evaluate?!

Atko, you are the man!
Excellent system!

Regards.

Just one of your front speakers has more power available to it than my entire eight speaker system - including the subwoofer! Since mine will get at least 6dB beyond reference level above 80Hz, I can barely imagine the potential in your system! 350w each for a midrange and tweeter, that is just crazy!

holy crap I want those speakers

Holy crap!! I just took a crap!!!

Beautiful setup. I like that you kept the room design simple. Did you sound proof it? What is some of your favourite demo material? Is your projector mounted as high as in the 3D drawing?

Have you ever heard of Meyer Sound? If you upgrade again, check them out. Also look at some of Mark Seaton's designs for bass. They may stop your upgraditis
