The TV36's aren't that much larger but for some reason they seem noticeably larger to me. After two weeks I'm still amazed at their size. I like it... they make a statement... they mean business.
Yeah, I bet their sound makes them look bigger as well....I still owe you a call....

Spent the weekend taking everything out. Putting up 40 yards of velvet. Need somebody to help me tuck the front carpet under those big boys. I think the end result looks great. This is with lights on and flash on the camera.

The Polk speakers are my current free speaker stands for the MTM-110’s. I switched the TV36’s to have the ports shooting into the side walls per the suggestions on this thread.

That looks awesome!!! You did a great job. You'll have to give us a more detailed review of how you like your new babies when you get a chance.

Damn Cats! So last night we had a spider that ran under the S36 by the couch , so naturally we all go on kill mode to get it and I pull the S36 away and eliminate the spider. So at that time I decide to just check the connections on the amp and do a little dusting and check out my settings. Turns out the gain was at about 1 o'clock , delay about 12 and the crossover somewhere about 11-12 instead of being all the way to the right..Checking the 2 up front as they 2 little ones get to the amp side as well , the Gain was about where I had it , again the delay was around 10 o'clock , crossover was pretty much all the way to the right but just off a tick and the Room size was left to large on all 3....So the cats have been pretty much been playing patty-cake with all the knobs and screwing with everything...I had no idea because I am a pretty simple listener and thought things sounded pretty good , but I did kind of notice something off the past few days specifically...Turning the crossover back to the right on the nearest one had me jumping up to turn the gain down once some bass hit! Gonna have to do some tweaking and duct taping tonight ...lol..

I rescued a rambunctious pair and they go crazy certain times of the day and Ive seen them jump behind the subs , but never thought anything of it. They are both polydactyl cats , so they have extra toes...So now I can just picture them back there with their evil little thumbs turning knobs!! lol...

The knobs move quite easily without notice and with no click-in settings , I can see how some normal cleaning or a cat paw can screw things up. Especially for the guys that spend HOURS dialing things in!

Wow, looks so awesome blacked out! I bet the image is marvelous. Small suggestion...if it’s even noticeable to you during movies, paint those shiny metal screen hooks, and you’ll have almost no reflections.

I’m jealous!

I will definitely do that. I will probably pull the vent and paint it matte black. My wife used a sharpie to black out what she could. Honestly the hooks are not visible unless your standing up behind the seating position like I was when I took the picture.

What would you recommend I use?

I’ve come a long way because of you guys and your set ups.

Too many post to reply!

@GatoGoat, I want to personally Thank You, for saving those two feline. All my three were rescue, and made this family a so much better place full of happiness.

Happen to me once with my little furry members of the family
After setting everything back to where they are suppose to be, I use some caulking that can be remove around the knobs controls.
Problem solve, and never did happen again

And when doing other experiment with my subs, it was a breeze to remove. And apply new caulking once done. After all, cats will be cats and love to play!

@CallingMrBenzo, nice looking room! How does the view look during a flick with your current carpet. I had my girls use black fingernail polish on some staples from my velvet, since they were doing their nails anyway..

They are very entertaining , but only problem is that we now have 5!! The litter is not so entertaining!! But worth it...4 of them are rescues, and my Russian Blue boy pictured I think I paid $25 for from a Facebook ad. They seem to enjoy sleeping on the subs , even when they are cranking!! Well maybe not when they are cranking , but most of the time!
What is the name/type of the caulk you are using? I am a bit stupid when it comes to household repair items and will end up using some sort of shower grout around the knobs!!

TV36 ipal out for delivery!

My TV36 ipal has made its way to California and is out for delivery! Hope to post my initial impressions tonight or tomorrow. No numbers, just some honest feedback on how it compares to my current JTR2400 (which is an awesome sub).

Since getting the TV36-iPal, I can't stop listening to music. Sure, it's great for movies, but really special with music.

Yeah, I'm 99% movies so I'm hoping for at least a noticeable improvement in movies. Hopefully it will still have most of the low extension of the JTR, but I am really hoping for a dramatic increase in the mid-range base which I don't believe is the forte of the JTR2400.

All except one of my furry friends over the years have been rescue. The one was a kitten from a family member' litter.

Regarding cats and scratching-I have been lucky to train all of them to use scratching posts pretty easily....and keep them from the speakers (except for some minor marks on a passive radiator on the rear of one of the Klipsh Forte that luckily didnt pierce the paper. Key is to have several posts or perches around the house that they can tear up as much as they want. If they are scratching at something else, pick them up and bring em to the post. Also, wrap or line what they like to scratch (but shouldn't be) at in aluminum foil for a short period-works like a charm.

I had one years ago that use to tear up the TP rolls in the bathroom from time to time. Never was able to get her to stop that one completely. LOL

Guys here are a few REW sweeps I took. Am I supposed to be taking sweeps at -12DBS? The volume seems low.

Also, I believe my microphone to be reading 5 db low. I went into my Marantz check speaker levels and playing them at 0.0 MV my mic was saying about 70db not 75db as it should.

Well, the sub arrived but unfortunately it was damaged in shipping and I refused it. It appears something was rubbing up against the box most likely on the train and actually rubbed of some of the textured surface off of the cabinet. Needless to say I am bummed (is it ok to say pissed?). Note sent to Tom and I'm sure he will make everything right. It's just going to take more time now to get another one.

You have got to be kidding me! Why would they even try to deliver something like that! I feel for you my man. I was excited to hear your impressions as I sit here cranking some music on my day off.

I am sure Tom will make it right, but is that not the shipping company's responsibility?

You must live a charmed life if you've never seen box damage at that level. I've received boxes from UPS that look like they were run over by the delivery truck, and then the truck backed up to run over them again!

Dibs on that in the outlet!
Just kidding, that sucks man!
Especially after waiting so long.
No doubt Tom will make things good.
Still sucks though

Regarding cats and scratching-I have been lucky to train all of them to use scratching posts pretty easily....and keep them from the speakers (except for some minor marks on a passive radiator on the rear of one of the Klipsh Forte that luckily didnt pierce the paper. Key is to have several posts or perches around the house that they can tear up as much as they want. If they are scratching at something else, pick them up and bring em to the post. Also, wrap or line what they like to scratch (but shouldn't be) at in aluminum foil for a short period-works like a charm.

I had one years ago that use to tear up the TP rolls in the bathroom from time to time. Never was able to get her to stop that one completely. LOL
You know , the grills of the subs haven't been so much of a problem. Dont get me wrong , there are a few fibers of fabric hanging out that they have got their claws into. But I have been lucky that they have responded well to my loud foot stomp and hand clap with a loud "NO!!!" , to scare them away from the grills. I have the S36s 45'd into the corners with the amp facing the angle pt of the wall , so of course that is the perfect spot for a cat to get behind...I think their bodies or paws just screwed with the knobs while they were back their catting around...

Yeah, the more I think about it the more I think someone wasn't being careful and stabbed it with a fork from a forktruck.
