You must make a lot of money because after a divorce the budget goes down usually.

Wondering if anyone ever tried to use one of the powered towers as a center? I am parting out a pair of bp3000 so I may try it. I would of course disconnect the back side of drivers and tweeters. I wonder if the speakers being off center of the screen would have a negative effect.

Hi everyone -I was just given a set of old BP2006TL towers w/ powered subs and the matching center (2300, has powered sub too). I have a Marantz 5003 amp and want to set this up as a basement a/v system. Space constraints mean no rear surrounds so just a 2.1 system (or is is 3.1 since I have a center?).

I am confused with the amp setup - my options are Sub Y/N, Size L/S, Crossover freq and an LFE setting of OFF, 0.0 DB or -10DB. Speakers are all wired using standard speaker wire and banana plugs.

I think I should set these to Sub=No, Front and Center = Large, Surround = None and leave the crossover at 80. Does this sound correct? What do I do with the LFE setting? Leave it at 0.0 or turn it off?

You should give it a shot...

I took a set of Polk RTA-15TL's (picture on the left)
and put them in slim a cabinet I built with the same volume as the original cabinets and put them behind my AT screen.
I oriented them in the cabinet to match the a set of polk 1.2tl's.(picture on the right).. they sound fantastic!!

I know this is a DT forum and I've switched to Polk SDA's across the front...but what I'm getting at is, I think you'll fall in love with the "full sized CC"...

Quick question how do you have your LCF set to on the crossover?

Hi everyone! My wife and I moved to a smaller domicile recently (house -> apartment), and had to move our beloved Martin-Logans etc. to storage.

For a while we were trying to make do with the speakers in our flat panel (which I bought for it's alleged sound quality), but it wasn't even close.

Today we listened to some Definitives, and were utterly, completely, absolutely blown away.

Bought 9060s left, right, center (sadly, no option for surround in the smaller domicile).

Just saying hi.

My system? Google for: Martin Logan 420 CLX Descent Stage Summit

I do ok. I pay for everything as it is, when she's gone those things will only cost 1/2 as much. It will take me a year to rebound financially, but my happiness is priceless.

It's an apartment--we don't want to drill into the walls.

Metro shelving will solve the problem.

I've been there too Learned from my lessons.

One thing, we always joke about the "wife factor" but my new and better wife appreciates my hobbies and interests and understands that audio/video is something she has learned to like because I like it (or at least let me be).

I've been divorced for 19 years! It was the best decision for both of us. I'm way happier now and can buy whatever I want when I want to. I grew up without a mother after seven years of age when she died suddenly. What I've noticed is many men marry a woman who they can be romantic with but still want or need to be told what and when and how to do everything. That's not happiness that's control. I'm better off now financially than I ever was when married (9 years)! When married the debt rises. Most men are afraid of divorcing because they think they will come away with nothing which isn't true as the laws work both ways. Especially if the wife earns a paycheck and has income. I bought my ex wife out of the house, stayed there for 19 years and sold it with equity and purchased a larger house that's paid for with cash. The men that have wives that are not psycho or controlling did choose the "right one"! I have found a "good woman" that's been through the divorce process herself. Neither of us want to get married. What benefit does it bring to YOU both? Here's a question for you, think carefully. It's a simple question but you have to answer honestly. It's as follows, When was the last time you were in a disagreement (argument) with your wife? Now here the thinking part of it, who started the disagreement/complaint/argument?

I’m lucky. I was always a Hi-Fi guy, and when I started dating my wife, her parents had two closets full of VHS tapes, both store bought, and SLP recordings of 3 HBO movies crammed onto one blank tape.

This was right around the time Dolby Surround was coming out. Stereo VCRs, dual-mono rears. I was hooked. We got married at 22, and have both had our personal ups and downs, been there for each other, and weathered the storms. Sometimes she carries the financial weight, sometimes I did, but we’ve always had our love for movies and music.

My first “home theater” was a used CRT projector I bought from a local hospital’s surplus sale, a cheap converter box, PS/2, and homemade 4:3 screen in the unfinished basement with 2 lawn chairs. One day, she volunteered that since we weren’t having kids, we should convert the third bedroom into a dedicated theater. Upgrades followed.

We have always been “old souls”, and bought our last home we will ever own when we were 42. I lost my job between our offer being accepted and closing. A great friend came through to make the sale go through. Another great friend took me into her business doing something I personally life- cooking- but with a paycheck, at the 10 year reigning “best brunch in town.” The house was secured, but the HT was in a pile in the corner.

One Saturday I came home after a hot, brutal shift to find that the extra bedroom was cleared, taped, the carpet covered, and paint swatches laid out. She had decided that it was time to reinvent the home theater, and was waiting for me to tell her what I wanted. By the next weekend, she had it finished and ready for equipment install.

I hit the jackpot.

That's where I realized I had a problem. I don't give a ***** about the wife factor, never did. I pay for everything and max out my 401k and she still had the nerve to bitch about my audio addiction.


Well, I'm buying her out of the house (that she has never paid a dime towards) and changing the locks. Good luck finding another situation that's half as comfortable.


Sometimes a woman that's good enough, isn't.

I power my 8060's with a 125W per channel Emotiva amp and have no problems driving these speakers. Everybody inflates their per channel claims and the Emotiva amp I've seen measured at 117. Your Yamaha receiver at a claimed 90W I'm sure is putting out something less.

Maybe it's time to invest in a 2, 3, 5, or 7 channel amp? My 'ol Emotiva 7 channel amp has seen several changes in AVR's and speakers but remains a constant.

Yes you have a great point. But now I need to get rid of my Rythmik fv25hp I just got about 2 months ago moving to a smaller place and a apartment which today I took my small klipsch 10" and I got a call from management telling me that they are tenants complaining. Its anhuge bummer but now I have to see how to sell them. The only good thing is I'll be going separate and have 2 years before I come back to my house to start my HT once again. Thank you for your time amd advice.

Mythos Nine Question

Hello all - long time stalker, first time poster (I apologize for any etiquette mistakes)

I'm very slowly building a 5.1 system - currently have a Yamaha RX-V683 driving cheap LR and a Procenter 1000 with a Klipsch R-12 Sub. I'm looking to upgrade the LR and push them to surrounds (to upgrade later). I primarily use the system for TV/Movies (80%), but when the wife is away I love turning up music for the large open space (1 open room, about 50x50x8ft ceilings, I recognize I need a much bigger system to effectively play music here, but not an option for budget)

I've had my eyes on Promonitor 1000 as LR to match with the Procenter, but lately have been considering using Mythos Nines. WAF and budget are both factors - which is why the 1000s are appealing. That being said, the Nine's should pass WAF and I'm hoping they bring significant quality/sound improvements over the 1000s for the money. Which is why I'm here - what are your thoughts?
1. Would the Nines pair well with the procenter (timbre matching wise)?
2. Would I notice significant difference between the PM1000 and Nines to justify 4x the price (they spec similar, but the Nine's cost more for some reason, right?)?
3. Are there other options I should consider if I have a max budget of about $1000?

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you all!

I have a chance at a mint pair of Def Tech BP8060st for $500, seems like a good deal to me, hoping I can snag them.

My Marantz receiver has a setting that is supposed to reduce LFE soundwaves traveling through the walls. It's available through the various Audyssey's settings.

Sorry to hear about your current situation, apartment living can't be very conducive to home theater.

I reject your reality and substitute my own.
