So, other than some housekeeping (i.e.: turning the rat's nest of wires on the back of the rack into an organized system,) last Saturday was the day for the "final" improvement planned for the theater - the sub/tactile calibration.
Following an in-depth session with
, the SVS PC4000's, Sunfire True Sub MK II (nearfield) and Crowson actuators are playing together like a rock band. Synchronized, and each making the most out of their respective spaces. Very cool.
Just like I thought the pre-
picture looked pretty good, I also thought the subs and Crowson's in the theater worked pretty well.
Having seen what the difference is, my conclusion is the same as it was for the projector calibration - if you are using "out of the box settings" seriously consider getting someone who knows what they are doing to do a calibration.
I will report back after a few more movies/scenes, but strong first impression - very worth it.
