Subwoofers, Subwoofers, Subwoofers!
My Seaton subwoofer order is almost ready! My theater upgrade/renovation still is in process, a few more months. My installer is finally over his walking pneumonia - this helps - and I think I am making my very last specification change, and its a whopper.
At almost age 67 I can't keep upgrading forever and forever [although I will keep my membership as the 2nd member of the "Audio-Holics" Club (promising never NOT to upgrade audio video), started by Chuck/Audioguy]. I want to get my theater done once and for all, with minimal upgrades to keep my charter Audio-Holics Club membership intact.
In the past six weeks, I revised my upgrade to add a second pair of side surround Aerial Acoustics 7LCRs for the back/2nd row, after "attending" a Trinnov webinar discussing this. Then it really hit me that the plan to put the rear surround pair of Aerial 7LCRs at the very back of the side walls just was not only too close to the back/2nd row side surrounds, but also that lets forgo disc storage at the back cabinetry/wall and instead just use that area for subwoofers and the pair of rear surround Aerial 7LCRs and some acoustic treatments. And as a natural consequence of this, and in discussion with Mark Seaton and my installer, it became evident that with the 3 subwoofers planned for the back cabinetry/wall to lay side-by-side, better to stack them in a stack of 3. Next comes I have room for a second stack of 3 subwoofers (all Mark Seaton's new 21" sealed subwoofers) NEXT to the first stack. This gives me a balance of 6 subwoofers in BOTH the front (below the screen) and back (2 stacks of 3) of the theater.
Is anyone wondering if I have lost my marbles? Or if this is an early April Fool's joke?
