My New Set Up

Hey all, AVS Forum newbie here, just upgraded my speakers from the Klipsch Quintet V to:

L/R: JBL 580s
Center: JBL 520c
Surround: JBL 230s
Sub: Onkyo SKW-391

(Upgrading the sub though as soon as I get a new receiver with a normal/non-powered speaker wire sub out, as this is the sub that came with my original Cheap Onkyo 5.1 system in a box set up in 2012 I was using before the Klipschs, but figured receiver and sub could be last upgrade lol)

Unhappy Yamaha WX-010 are a PIA

These frequently lose connection with my LAN. Reconnecting is tedious. I don't have problems with any other devices on my network. I anyone else experiencing this problem with their WX-010s?

While your question, is out of this thread about showing your speakers.


Loosing connection is a computer thing, many time I loose connection on this forum
And this is why, so many of my posts are edited, post, edit and repeat, before my PC freeze on me


Yes it suck, and I am not a computer person, perhaps another thread could help You

From 5 months i finally managed to buy my first modest HT system.

Mains Dali Zensor 5
Center Dali Zensor Vokal
Side SR Dali Zensor 1
Atmos, 2x Dali Alteco C1
Sub: SVS PB-1000.
with a denon x1440h

for the future (hope till the end of this year) i plan to make a DIY sub with the ultimax 18 and if i sell the svs, to get another ultimax 18, and in the further future if i managed to get a dedicated large enough room i plan to DIY everything,
for the LCR going to try and copy Jav's old build, and start adding more and more subs. at least 100 to 120 inch screen and everything hidden behind the screen or in the walls.

Here is how they it looks from the seating position, Using a 15mm lens on a full frame for those who know little photography to kind of understand the scale. You can see how close to the TV they are. They sit there for music and when not in use. I pull them out for movies so i can have them at ~26°.
Spoiler!


So when i watch a movie i pull out the measuring tape, i use the little carpet in front of the TV and i put the tape against the front of it, i draw a virtual line where the middle of the TV is and place it at 140cm [56 inches], then i put the left front speaker on the 0cm mark and the right on the 280cm[112 inches] mark, then i just rotate them a bit to point them at the listening position. I know it looks messy, cables everywhere, but i'm too far away from the TV and in order to get that sweet 26° i have to do this. So it looks like this.

Spoiler!


Here is on what the speaker are standing, Also using the spikes they came with. Problem is that It's the Zensor 5's they are a bit smaller and they need to be risen about 10cm [4inchs] in order to get the middles between the tweeter and the first woofer at ear level. And because of that the Atmos top firing are too low as well, I also have to build stands for the left and right surrounds becuase they have the same problem.
Spoiler!


Because i can't lift the TV up, it's a bit too high anyway, i had to put the center on top of it, so i build this.
Spoiler!


Unfortunately i had to place to sub way to the right, and it's a bit farway, if you draw a straight line from the listening position to it, it's almost 6m [20ft] even though it doesn't look like it on the pictures
Spoiler!


The denon x1400h under it's dust cover :P
Spoiler!


The rest of the photos
Spoiler!


The link to the google drive folder where the photos are.

Settings i use.

Front left speaker 3.06m (10.2ft) -6.5db
Center speaker 3.72m (12.4ft) -8.5db
Front right speaker 3.06m (10.2ft) -6.0db
Side left speaker 1.83m (6.1ft) -8.5db
Side right speaker 1.83m (6.1ft) -10.0db
Front left Atmos speaker 3.15m (10.5ft) (Ceiling distance 1.55m (5.1ft)) 0.0db
Front right Atmos speaker 3.12m (10.4ft) (Ceiling distance 1.55m(5.1ft)) -0.5db
Subwoofer gain dial 11o'clock 5.73m (19.1ft) -12.0db

AVR volume normally at -8db because the subwoofer is small for the room and quite far away even though the conver gives it a few dbs.

Crossovers:
Front 80hz
Center 90hz
Surround 110hz
Front Dolby 150hz

Also made a few videos on movie scenes, i have 3-4 more videos.

Final thoughts, well it's nothing that i have ever had before, the experience is quite new and i really like, that small svs, shakes the couch quite well at frequencies 19-21 hz, it also flexes the windows on the far right of the room. Can't wait for the dayton 18 ultimax ^_^
If you have any questions, shoot!

Thanks for the pictures, with very well details information
I normally advise to angle up or down the Center Speaker, and see you have done that.
I also often recommend to have that same speaker, sticking out around 0.5-1 inch out of the shelf.


Very difficult in your situation, but seeing how you went around so many problems, perhaps you will figure something


To finish, very nice and very well thought.

Super clean, man. Has a cozy feel and probably sounds really good.

A few months ago I upgraded my 5.1 Yamaha RX-V371 to the Aventage 870. I have to admit, just upgrading the AVR I could hear a difference. I found a deal on the Polk Monitor 70's for $250 (for the pair) to replace my bookshelf speakers. They matched my Polk CS20 center. Since this was a new space and twice the size of the previous room, I felt my center speaker was to small for the space, thus I upgraded to the Klipsch 450 (piano black). HUGE difference! Because I am now offically broke from buying the center, my goals down the road are to replace the Monitors with Klipsch towers. AVR and Sub are hidden in the photo

Very nice clean look.


Since you are broke at the moment, I like your idea of having a goal for down the road.


Meanwhile, I do have a small suggestion that will cost nothing but a few minutes of your time, and also make a big difference in your sound
Just move both towers past the edge of the cabinet (forward), the same for your Center to be past the edge of the shelf.
This will remove some early reflections, and improve your sound.

Ray is spot on!

It should make a pretty dramatic improvement to the sound. That extreme early reflection cases nasty comb filtering. You don't want that, and everything should sound more coherent and clear if you just pull them out a few inches so that the fronts of the speaker baffles are just slightly in front of the cabinet (and just flush or a very slight overhang on the center channel, not enough to cause instability).

Glad to help out


For further improvement, you may try playing with the toe-in of your mains, a lot of try an error.
Also making sure your Center speaker, is perfectly aligned with your mains (my instruction's for the center);


-First, go get yourself a cheap laserpointer, a flat one if possible.
-Then put-it on top of one of your main (does not matter which one, sincethey are both the same height).
-Point at your listening area.
-Put a piece of tape to mark the position.
-measure with a ruler the distance from the top of the speaker to the centerof the tweeter.
-Go back to your piece of tape at your listening area and subtract thatdistance going down.
-Put a new piece of tape and remove the first one.
-Now do the same for the center speaker with a little difference.
-First measure the distance from the top of the center speaker to the centerof the tweeter.
-Go back to your main listening area.
-Remember piece of tape
#2
-now take the distance from the top of your center to the center of tweeterand go up from the piece of tape
#2 to that distance.
-put piece of tape
#3 , and piece of tape #2 can be remove if you like, since it was the distance of yourmain tweeter.
-put the laser pointer on top of your center
-adjust angle until the light hit that piece of tape (
#3 ).
Now you're done, all tweeters should hit the main listening position at thesame height(for the main listening position)."
Also, Make sure your center speaker is sticking out of the cabinet by aboutan inch.
Sound reflection from the edge of a cabinet can play havoc on your sound.





Just another option, if you get bored

Well it's funny you should post this. I ignored the wife factor for a reason, and had I not then I would have never been "wife approved" for the larger speakers. So as a compromise, I have decided to move my home audio (with TV) to another room actually works better for me acoustic wise. So I will have lots of time this weekend to do this

I like how you have all that hidden there behind the picture. Very cool idea!

For further improvement, you may try playing with the toe-in of your mains, a lot of try an error.
Also making sure your Center speaker, is perfectly aligned with your mains (my instruction's for the center);


-First, go get yourself a cheap laserpointer, a flat one if possible.
-Then put-it on top of one of your main (does not matter which one, sincethey are both the same height).
-Point at your listening area.
-Put a piece of tape to mark the position.
-measure with a ruler the distance from the top of the speaker to the centerof the tweeter.
-Go back to your piece of tape at your listening area and subtract thatdistance going down.
-Put a new piece of tape and remove the first one.
-Now do the same for the center speaker with a little difference.
-First measure the distance from the top of the center speaker to the centerof the tweeter.
-Go back to your main listening area.
-Remember piece of tape
#2
-now take the distance from the top of your center to the center of tweeterand go up from the piece of tape
#2 to that distance.
-put piece of tape
#3 , and piece of tape #2 can be remove if you like, since it was the distance of yourmain tweeter.
-put the laser pointer on top of your center
-adjust angle until the light hit that piece of tape (
#3 ).
Now you're done, all tweeters should hit the main listening position at thesame height(for the main listening position)."
Also, Make sure your center speaker is sticking out of the cabinet by aboutan inch.
Sound reflection from the edge of a cabinet can play havoc on your sound.





Just another option, if you get bored

All good advice. It's fun to play with placement and hearing changes in the sound. If your speakers are rear ported, moving them out farther or closer to the wall can make a huge difference in the bass response. Corners can make a difference in bass also.

Also good advise, and so true

Glad to hear


Playing with the angle of speakers, is not for everyone, many just set-it are done.
But since you want to help yourself, feel free to PM me, if you need help
Love to help others, when I can!

I have dreamed of Focal Electra 1037be since launch for more than 10 years ago. And the launch of 1038be did make me want those speakes even more. And finaly I have fulfilled my dream and bought a pair of Sopra 2s. Those speakers are just so fun, what more could I ever want? Maybe a pair of Scala Evo But then I have to rob a bank, hehe.

Hi Sammy . I tried to rob the bank in Norway. I'm sorry to say that banks in Norway don't have that kind of . Anyway you should be happy with your Sopra. They sound fantastic. And you could always upgrade from your Audiaflight to something else. I have listened to these speakers with complete Hegel system and I have no complain on the sound. And there is still better soundings things out there.
You could try to get an Focal Alto on the used marked. They go for 35-45k KR. Scala is the newer model and the Scala Evo cost 325k KR. This make an used Alto ultra cheap.

Spoiler!


So when i watch a movie i pull out the measuring tape, i use the little carpet in front of the TV and i put the tape against the front of it, i draw a virtual line where the middle of the TV is and place it at 140cm [56 inches], then i put the left front speaker on the 0cm mark and the right on the 280cm[112 inches] mark, then i just rotate them a bit to point them at the listening position. I know it looks messy, cables everywhere, but i'm too far away from the TV and in order to get that sweet 26° i have to do this. So it looks like this.

Spoiler!


Here is on what the speaker are standing, Also using the spikes they came with. Problem is that It's the Zensor 5's they are a bit smaller and they need to be risen about 10cm [4inchs] in order to get the middles between the tweeter and the first woofer at ear level. And because of that the Atmos top firing are too low as well, I also have to build stands for the left and right surrounds becuase they have the same problem.
Spoiler!


Because i can't lift the TV up, it's a bit too high anyway, i had to put the center on top of it, so i build this.
Spoiler!


Unfortunately i had to place to sub way to the right, and it's a bit farway, if you draw a straight line from the listening position to it, it's almost 6m [20ft] even though it doesn't look like it on the pictures
Spoiler!


The denon x1400h under it's dust cover :P
Spoiler!


The rest of the photos
Spoiler!


The link to the google drive folder where the photos are.

Settings i use.

Front left speaker 3.06m (10.2ft) -6.5db
Center speaker 3.72m (12.4ft) -8.5db
Front right speaker 3.06m (10.2ft) -6.0db
Side left speaker 1.83m (6.1ft) -8.5db
Side right speaker 1.83m (6.1ft) -10.0db
Front left Atmos speaker 3.15m (10.5ft) (Ceiling distance 1.55m (5.1ft)) 0.0db
Front right Atmos speaker 3.12m (10.4ft) (Ceiling distance 1.55m(5.1ft)) -0.5db
Subwoofer gain dial 11o'clock 5.73m (19.1ft) -12.0db

AVR volume normally at -8db because the subwoofer is small for the room and quite far away even though the conver gives it a few dbs.

Crossovers:
Front 80hz
Center 90hz
Surround 110hz
Front Dolby 150hz

Also made a few videos on movie scenes, i have 3-4 more videos.

Final thoughts, well it's nothing that i have ever had before, the experience is quite new and i really like, that small svs, shakes the couch quite well at frequencies 19-21 hz, it also flexes the windows on the far right of the room. Can't wait for the dayton 18 ultimax ^_^
If you have any questions, shoot!

Thanks for sharing such detailed information. Nice to be able to do some comparisons.
Love the video clip as I've listened to this track several times as well.
I also have the SVS1000's (pair) and love the tightness of the base.

Absolutely love the idea of putting the AV system into the wall.
Now I truly regret not stumbling into this forum topic earlier, albeit I can still make something like this easily happen as the backside of my TV wall is in the furnace room and is unfinished.
