(i HATE running dirac...or any other ARC)
I have to zero out the minidsp 2x4...then time align...set the raw FR of the T^2...run dirac...set levels so 0.0 is 85db...bump up sub levels by 4-6 db...set house curve in minidsp 2x4...test them out
such a long process....nevermind once I finally decide to finish the cab on the T^2...I was trying to wrap my head around how to take all the drivers out...then get them back in since all 3 sides of the triax has 2 drivers...there is no side I can just lay on the floor for thagt last side of driver installs.
Tom? any suggestions?
This thing needs to get there...so I can sleep at night hahahah

BUT I knew the day I switched to the 110's for surrounds I would have a lot of work ahead of me because the new speakers were being relocated from the place where the old surrounds had been. That meant rerunning wire, hiding the new wire and wall repair and painting (where the old speakers had been hung on the wall).
But the first step was getting the new subs playing nice with each other which meant running REW. Then getting the new speakers hung in place. Then running Audyssy (I hate this step). Anyway you get the point.
Well…last night...a full week after I got my new toys I finally finished patching and painting to hide where the old surrounds had been.
The point? Getting new toys is still worth all the work that goes with them because I'm loving all of it (now that it's done).
But I spent some sleepless hours in bed thinking through where things would go and how I would pull it off.
It’s a crazy hobby. I sometimes look back to simpler times. Buy a budget sub that you can carry under one arm. Set it down and plug it in. Sounds terrible. Pick it up and move it over there. Sounds good. I’m done. Then I remember the sound then to the sound now, and those simpler times don’t seem so wonderful. There are no free lunches in audio, but dang, these newer subs are getting bigger and heavier and I’m not getting any younger.
