Thank you for the kind comments.

Yeah, the new Seymour XD screen just came in this week and the new XBOX one X is coming next week. Then my 4K journey will be complete.

As to the small riser, that is just shear laziness. It is a remnant of when I built the room 5 years ago and had a fixed screen attached to the wall and center channel was laid horizontally below the screen. When I converted to an AT screen I was just too lazy to change it so I just put the full size speaker on top of the stand

Time for my annual Christmas upgrade update. Just got a Sony 695 projector and swapped the Oppo for the Panny 820 (for the tone mapping). Also made a few cosmetic upgrades to the front of the room and ceiling to try and help with contrast.

Yeah, that was my original plan but JVC has now delayed them a second time and I didn't want to wait another 1 to 3 months. I was in a pinch because I had sold the Sony 385 anticipating the JVC in late October...then late November..and now it looks like 2019. Winter is HT season for me so I didn't want to be without a projector for that long.

How do you like your Crown amps for surround and atmos duties? Would you buy them again?


I'm currently in the market for six channels of amplification to power my rear surrounds and 4 atmos speakers. I'm considering my options.

Current Equipment: Datasat LS10 w/ Atmos and DIRAC. ATI 6005, AT527NC, Aerial Acoustics LR5's (LCR), SR3's sides, LR3's (rears), Seaton Submersive HP, Marantz VP15s1, 123" diag 16:9 Stewart Cima Neve screen, Oppo BDP-103, Palliser Flicks Theater Seating AC Power: Eaton whole-house surge protector at main panel, three dedicated 20 amp circuits, Surgex XR315 surge protector at equipment rack, Cyberpower 1400VA/900 watt, true sine wave UPS.

I would totally buy them again for surround and/or atmos duty. They have tons of power, run cool, built like a tank and work great in general. Now I did try them on the main channels and wouldn't personally use them in my set-up as I have high sensitivity LCR speakers that hiss with a lot of amps. That's why I got the ATI because it is often regarded as one of the quietest amps you can get.

I would not spend too much on Atmos speakers and amplification for Atmos speakers as they only are for ambience. In my 30 speaker Atmos system I use qsc amps for the height speakers but for surround I use Theta Ncore amps...

@Frohlich I am in the process of calibrating someone's theater including making some recommendations for his under-woofed room.

His theater is not really a closed off space and has a huge space behind it as well as another space off to one side. I would be guessing but we are probably talking about + 6000cf. Your open space looks similarly large.

Do the 4 18" drivers in your subs sufficiently pressurize your space to your TOTAL satisfaction?

If you mean pressurize as in your pants flapping in the wind, which I have witnessed in other AVS theaters, then no. I can't get that effect in my theater. I think my space is too large for that in relation to my two S2 subs (room is L shaped and total volume is probably over 2000 sq feet) . There is plenty of slam and you can feel it in your chest and in the furniture/chairs rattling but I can't get it to move things like hair or pants.

2000 square feet or 2000 cubic feet. 2000 cubic feet is a fairly small room. For example: 14x18x8. Your space has to be MUCH larger than that given all of the open spaces in the area. I don't care about moving pant legs from the subs. But chest slam and chest pressure will be more than enough. The space I am working with would probably at least ten 18's to do that. I'm looking for him to procure 4 18's from Funk Audio. According to him, each of his 18s represents 150% to 200% of a Seaton F18. But I want to make sure he will be happy with the choice!! He has heard my room (3400cf) which is much smaller than his using 8 Seaton F18's so that is his reference.

Over 2000 SQ feet..guessing a little from memory....dont know the exact dimensions. Probably 16000 cubic feet since I have about 8 foot ceilings. I can take more exact measurements this weekend if it helps.

Measurements won't be necessary. You have answered my question. I will propose 4 of the 18" subs and he can always add more later.

Well, signed a contract on a new house last night. Loved this theater and this space but time to start planning for the new space in my next home. Still have a few months to pull some new plans together but depending on what my future buyer wants, I am actually hopping to take most/all of this equipment with me

Congrats man! We're trying to sell our house right now. I sold the theater and converted the room back to "normal". We're moving to a city apartment so I'm now going to other end of the spectrum with my equipment, sort of a minimalist mindset.

Hey Kevin, its been a couple of years. We have one in college and one entering her senior year of high school so we bought a house with a couple of acres in stonelick township very close to Stonelick golf course. We aren't moving until August because in order for my daughter to attend her senior year at her current high school, we have to live in the school district at leas the first day of the school year...so thats out plan. One of the acres is a pond and the other acre has the house on it. Just looking to get a little land and try something different after living in suburbia for 25 years.

If you end up getting rid of those block diffusers, hit me up before you post them.
Yeah, the new place is kind of secluded and every home owner has 2 to 4 acres (all 12 of them). The neighborhood is surrounded by hundreds of acres of trees/woods so I hope no suberbia sprawl for quite a while. Man, you know your getting old when you start having dreams of future grand kids coming over to fish and getting excited about it. What is happening to me??? I guess the next step is to start eating dinner at Bob Evans at 4:30

As far as speakers, not sure yet. The JBL 708P and JBL SCL 3 are the type of speaker I am considering but just don't know yet. I have some time to make up my mind this summer before we move.
