help making decisions buying D-box
I've been thinking about D-box for some time, may just make that leap with the new theater presently a work in progress . I have pricing on seating ( two rows of three) from Jaymar the pricing for D-box per seat though is quite high( $5600/seat)
and I'm trying to decide if the process is worth it or not . A couple of questions to everyone who may have some experience and first hand knowledge .
First off, is the price worth the experience ? It's a lot of coin , just want to be sure the majority have positive experiences they consider worth the investment .
Is the noise from the actuators bothersome? I'm going to start with one or two chairs at first then add to the other chairs if I feel it's worth the investment, and yes, all chairs will be D-box ready.
Do these units have to be hard wired or work wireless, if both which is best ?
Jamar recommend 2" between seats, is this necessary or overkill?
Are there known issues with certain D-Box components, be that actuators or controllers ?
I know there has been discussion about controllers, what units should I consider, what should I avoid ?
I may go with one or two love seats, is the experience in these less than single seating ?
Any other advise , concerns or issues please feel free to add .
Also if someone is selling equipment please pass on their info , I may consider used if the models still current and in excellent order .
