Just called mark replacement amp will be sent. It was a 2 minute conversation.
That is as good as it gets from customer service.
1/24th smoothing, centre channel and subs, crossovers set at 100Hz for LCR and 110Hz for surrounds and heights.
This graph shows the difference between Pgm1 and Pgm2. 1/24th smoothing. Note this graph is 15Hz to 200Hz.
Hahaha - yes, I figured if the house was going to collapse, it might as well happen sooner rather than later... :)
Cheers Mike - it was your experience in a similar sized room that finally got me to pull the trigger.
Thanks VK - I am saying nothing about those 2,400 watt amps. Nothing
Thanks! It's taken me a while to get around to it. Two reasons for that - one, I wanted to wait until I had a good number of listening hours under my belt and two, I haven't been able to drag myself out of the HT for long enough to do the write-up :)
Thanks Brolic. I will resist, I will resist, I will resist, I will resist, I will resist, I will resist, I will resist ...... :)
Thanks Craig. I thought you'd like that phrase ;) And thanks for the help along the way.
:) Well, 3 really is out of the question for me unless I move house! I’d have to consider the amp upgrade of course - but 1,000 watt amps in this small room .... would I feel the benefit of 2,400 watt amps? It's about 4dB more - and really, I am about one notch from 0 on the F2s already.... I think headroom isn’t an issue. But hey, Mike Duke has a room the same size as mine and he upgraded and is happy, so who knows? Vast bragging rights of course: "Oh yeah, just shy of 5 kilowatts of amplification... that's just the subs of course" LOL.
I am loving them - and this thread really rocks. I read it cover to cover before I took the plunge and it was thanks to all the many contributors here that I made one of the best HT decisions I have ever made.
I did wonder if I should have omitted that section of the review about the small communication issue I had initially. In the end I decided to put it in to show, if nothing else, that in the scheme of things it didn’t really matter and was soon overcome. Mark has been great in every other respect and he really stepped up to the plate when I was having the issues with UK Customs. I fully understand the problems that can come from a successful business growing quickly (I was in business myself for over 3 decades) and I am sure Mark will resolve any issues with that.
Thanks for the kind words, Craig - I appreciate them.
Thanks. I know that 'grin on face' feeling... it just appears at various points through the movies, with no conscious effort at all. :)
I did a graph showing 10-200Hz - here it is. Not too bad is it? 1/24th smoothing.
Next time I get the OmniMic out, I will try the sub distance setting method you describe. I'd love to consider Mark's speakers - but unfortunately I really can't accommodate them here - I have to leave some room in the HT for me!
