That said, I do not think those crawlies, would like to Live in there for long.
Maybe not for the sound volume, but the air movement, not a pleasant place to Live.


Just open the Sub, vacuum if needed, and forget about-it.

Ah, good point! I had already put double sided tape on the inside of the ports. My actual concern should probably be the receiver. I'm thinking I'll just put tape on the feet so they can't crawl up in there. I'm assuming bugs are attracted to warmer areas though, maybe not.

I live way up North, where the temperature on average go around -20 to -30, and sometime extreme as -40 to -50 Celsius, in the winter. Summer it can go up to 30 Celsius.
My house is suppose to Air Tight, but somehow, some find a way to get in, but none last long due to my Cats thinking "here's a new Toy, lets bat it around"


Honestly, the little vent holes on the top of your AVR are too small them for them to crawl-in, so no worry on that one.
If You think your bug infection is that big, I would seriously look into hire a fumigator, get your Love ones and pets out, for the few hours it will take for the place to be safe again. this way all the establish colony are gone, and you only have to deal with to few that find a way in.

Don't know if this is the right place to post my question but since the title say speaker setup so I give it a try:

I have the Klipsch sub and it has gain, phase and the other one is about Hz with the last option is LFE. There are 2 cable inputs: one is LFE and the other one is something else (don't remember exactly but can check when I'm off of work tonight).

I have the Yamaha a-1060 and it has some option relating to Hz so don't know which one to select. Currently it is on 80Hz for all speakers and the sub.

What is the gain?
What is the phase (0 or 180)?
What is the Hz and LFE?

Would you please direct or tell me how to set it up correctly?

Thank you.

I have a newb question:

My home came with Energy Encore2 satellite speakers and about a year ago I upgraded the center channel with an Energy Carn. CC-10 that has 2 5.5" woofers and 1" sub. My Encores have died and I'm now looking to replace them with in wall speakers.

My question is does it matter what size woofer the surround speakers have versus the center channel? The ones I'm looking at have 6.5" woofer. Will this unbalance the sound or anything?

<--- Newbie here

I am getting started with planning for a dedicated home theater setup (first one), and looking for some advice and help with speakers and audio components. We will be constructing a new home with the home theater being in the basement.

- The room will be 19'L X 16'W X 9'H with no windows.
- 80% Movies, 20% Music....Games will be in another room
- Looking to do a 9.2 setup


I have been looking at Klipsch R-28Fs for the fronts and Klipsch RP450C for the center, and R-112SW. Powered by a Denon AVR-X4300H

After that, I am a bit unsure for the surrounds. I was looking at the R-15Ms or the JBL Arena 130s or any others that you may suggest. I have seen mixed reviews of both these speakers, so was not sure where I should look. Trying to be under $250/pair, since I am looking to get (6) of those. I don't like the bipole speakers, so trying to do the bookshelf ones. Also, will be using these to build within custom columns in the HT.

Nothing is finalized as I don't have any equipment right now. I read good reviews on the R-28Fs and the RP450-C, that is why I was leaning that way, but that could change as well.

Not looking to do any ceiling speakers at this time.

I'm thinking about placing a center channel above my screen as well as one below the screen. I live in a remote town of North Carolina, and you ate considered an audiophile if you own a transistor radio, so there's no help locally.

Hi.
I have been studying this forum and I am wanting to upgrade my front speakers.
The current Wharfedales have a 6 1/2 woofer and most of the floor-standing speakers I've been looking at have two 5 1/4 woofers.


What is the difference to the listener? How does this effect the sound?

Amp: Yamaha RX-V383
L&R: Dali Zensor 5
Center: Dali Zensor Vokal
Rear: Dali Spektor 2
Sub: Polk PSW 110

Hello! Forum noobie here. I have a pretty basic question. I currently have a 2.1 HTS setup: Chane A1.4 and an Outlaw LFM-1 EX. Would you guys recommend sticking with this or going 3.1? I have my eyes set on a Chane A2.4 for a center channel, but I'm not sure if that will improve my sound. My current limitations include being in a small apartment where I can't turn up the volume very loud. In my previous house I had a 2.2 setup that was pretty great- had always planned on going 3.2, but with the recent move I am not so sure now. Thanks!

Just wanted to confirm that 16 AWG should be fine for rear atmos speakers? The run is definitely under 50 feet. I haven't measured it exactly but it's probably not more than 30. I'm going to be running it through walls and under carpet so I want to get what I need, but also not have it be thicker than I need.
