Carp,

Are you in North Carolina? I don't read the forums much anymore but I kind of remember your room.

I think I bought a sub from you years ago. Then again, I'm getting old so maybe it was someone else.

Ah, okay. Told you I was getting old. Anyway, your room does look familiar or at the very least it looks like what I have in mind for my room. Unfortunately I have slanted ceilings to contend with but I think I can get a fairly large screen in there because the slant to the ceiling goes all the way around the room and I can pull the screen out some to get more height. Another thing that caught my attention was your JBL speakers. I have a set LCR of the little brother 3722N. Bought them used a few years ago and have never tried them. I like your SC8 surrounds but looks like they are kind of hard to find. I found a great deal on (6) 8340A surrounds but I'm not sure how they compare. I would like to pick your brain a bit.

I remember picking up a sub from a guy in Winston-Salem. Don't even remember what kind it was. Might have been an EPIK or Elemental Designs model. Anyway, it was a basement.

I don't even own a sub at the moment. I'm starting from scratch. New house (new to me anyway), new room, new equipment. It's no basement but this is better than my last space.

I've had enough folks come through over the years I just can't remember anymore. I am pretty sure we at least discussed it, but no, definitely never got a sub from me

What would you recommend I look for to power (3) JBL 3722N? All I have at the moment is a mid-range Denon receiver. I was looking at Crown XLS amps as probably the most obvious choice for JBL speakers. My room will be about 95% home theater duty. I know less than nothing about these speakers really.

The XLS drivecore amps are solid. You won't need much to power them but if you want assurance on no fans spooling up, nor having to do a fan mod, emotiva is still a fine one-box solution. Just stick with gen3 or later as the gains are lower on those and help with hiss.

Yeah, fans probably won't be a concern for what I have in mind. I don't plan to split the earth's crust with sound waves the way it looks like you probably do! My wife will probably poo poo the whole thing the first time I turn it up a little bit.
