  1. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hope this is the right forum....I've got a front PJ setup with an acoustically transparent screen. I've swapped electronics and speakers over the last three years and there's still an annoying resonance noticeable in dialogue that appears to be related to the wall itself. This is a false wall...
  2. Speakers
    Advice, wisdom, opinions, experience needed... I'm not an "audiophile" but appreciate great sound. I'm also penurious, so I'm cheap. I'm building a 5.1 system and so far I've got a Hsu VTF-2 (with an upgraded sub-amp from Hsu), and a Denon X4000 I picked up from BB for $625 I'm currently...

    Guys, I'm a bit torn here as to what to do for pre-amp purposes. The problem for me is there are SO many options, but I'm not exactly sure what works best for me when it comes to bang for budget. Currently I own the following: Rane RPM88 (3) Crown XLS1500 for 5 channels (one channel left...

    Just picked up a Marantz AV 7701 pre/pro and hooked it up to my new Crown XLS 1500 via unbalanced RCAs. It sounds fantastic, but I wonder if I have the levels set correctly. I've been into home theater since I was old enough to save up and buy a Toshiba Cinema series tube in 1995, but I'm new...
  5. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hey guys, Just set up a floating entertainment center and didn't take into accout the height of my current receiver (Onkyo NR525) so i'm looking for a new receiver (even though it would probabily be cheaper to buy a new entertainment center). I have 6" of height to work with. Currently i'm...
  6. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Here's a comparison between these two amps running on my two sealed url-18's. The red curve is when I had an xls1500 bridged on each url with huge amounts of boost down low. Using my miniDSP I had a heavy low shelf with about 8db boost plus a big peak at about 15hz with 8db boost on each sub...

    Hello Fellows: Thanks very much for an informative site. I am rebuilding my Home Theatre, and decided on the Cerwin Vega XLS-28 towers for the fronts. This will be a fairly simple set up: 1. 50 inch Panasonic HDTV 2. A 7.1 surround system: -- Fronts: The L/F XLS-28 towers (please see...

    I just helped a friend order a full 5.1 JTR speaker setup (Noesis 228 LCRs, Slanted 8 surrounds and a S2). I pushed him to go way over his budget and he still need to buy a receiver I am aware of Onkyo 818, which seems like a decent receiver available for $650 refurbished or $800 new but...
