  1. DIY Speakers and Subs
    I am looking for advice- I would like to upgrade my LCR speakers with something from the DIY Sound Group kits. I was originally all in for waiting on the 1099's. However I am wondering if they may be the right choice for my space, or if one of the other kits are more appropriate. We just moved...
  2. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hello AVS! I'm quite excited to be starting to work on the full plans for my DIY dedicated home theater! **NOTE: This build will take time. I'm in no rush as I have many other house projects and etc going on. General Plan V1: **Speaker positions, angles, and such are guesstimates here! I...
  3. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hello, I've been reading here for almost a year but this is my first post. About a year ago, I had a cheap Best Buy HTIB system when I decided to buy some real equipment for my under construction basement. The subwoofer I selected was the Monolith 15, and in my 3000 ft^3 upstairs room, I was...

    95% of my use is movie's and was looking for a proven design that would out preform my kl-650-thx LCR while keeping clarity and detail maybe something like the jtr 212 but with 1 woofer and tweeter at sitting ear hight. I wouldn't mind getting a little lower bass with bigger boxes and bigger...

    I recently bought a 2016 Toyota Tundra 1794 edition crewmax, which included a stock JBL audio setup with an amplifier under the passenger seat and an 8-inch subwoofer behind the rear driver side seat. I want to replace the door speakers, remove the stock subwoofer, and add two 10-inch subs...

    I recently bought and built a pair of Helix MTMs. They sound fantastic, in all the ways I was hoping, but I have one issue I should’ve expected: the vertical dispersion is pretty uneven. I sit about 9’ away, with my ears just slightly above the tweeter. When I lean forward, or move my head up or...

    Hi everyone, I've gotten a great deal on JBL M2 parts. Therefore I'm looking for plans or construction drawings from people that have already made clones. I've tried messaging Cyril on youtube, POS, PBN Audio, and Leslie on audioheritage.com. I've also found an account I believe belongs to...
  8. Audio Gear
    I am looking to buy a pair of VBSS subwoofers. If you have the matching Behringer NX3000D, then even better, but not necessary. Located in Calgary, AB, Canada. I prefer local pickup. Thank you for your time.

  9. 2-Channel Audio
    I have a 4 part video series of my new dedicated 2 channel music room that needed some acoustic panels. Since no panels exist that look like these I had to build them. This is Acoustic Panels 2.0 made to resemble the look and feel of those old box speakers from the 70's and 80's. I call them 2.0...

    Hello, I am reaching out seeking for support. I am looking to mount 6.5" marine speakers on a round surface, but cannot find mounting hardware anywhere that will provide a stable and secure connection between surface/bracket and bracket/speaker. Can you please provide any ideas or items that may...

    Hi there I'm trying to build a custom passive woofer for a project. It will be enclosed in a box but the box itself won't be sealed - it will have a top and all its sides but the bottom of the box will be left open. The purpose of the woofer is to produce 30-40hz sine waves. That is. From my...

    I have a barely used NICE looking but busticated 12" Polk Sub Woofer. It had less than 15 hours of use but was on standby for 4 years when it started to hum even when not connected to an audio system. The internet indicates it needs new capacitors, I almost purchased a replacement plate...

    So - my livingroom adjoins the office, with a pocket door to the kitchen (with a projector above the pocket door). See image below. My question - as you can see with the default design and location for 'items' I can probably put a subwoofer hole basically to the left and/or the right of the...
  14. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Currently I am in the process of planning out a pair of DIY nearfield subwoofers to add to my home theater. The goal is to introduce a little tactile response to my huge open basement as well as add as much mid bass as possible as it's currently lacking in my setup. My current thought is to...

  15. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hello all I have been considering adding a subwoofer to my 5 channel surround sound system. My previous BIC v-1520 subwoofer was my late father's and I felt it did its job well until it died and gave it away. I am missing the bass in my movies and music. I was originally going to try and buy...
  16. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hey all I was hoping I could get some input on how to solve a problem. My theater is in a large open basement on a concrete slab. Currently I have 2 um15s in full Marty's behind an AT screen. I have very little tactile response due to the nature of the room and no mid bass chest slam. While I...
  17. DIY Screen Section
    I accidentally first posted in the wrong forum, so didn't see the FAQ for painted screens at first. However, a lot of the information is old, so wanted to ask about the current state of the art. First, some background, I volunteer at a few theaters, who occasionally use projected scenery. And...

    I have a moderately large main room with vaulted ceilings and no doors closing it off. The floor is the slab foundation. I've been reading a ton of threads on this forum, and I could use some opinions from people who have gone different routes. I have a max budget of $1000 to spend on a...
  19. DIY Screen Section
    Our nonprofit organization (ArtPeers) has been in a prolonged, deep-dive search for a semi-portable screen solution. AVS Forum members helped in many ways – post threads, group conversations, direct messages. Grateful for this community. A number of members recommended reaching out to Carl's...
  20. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    In the process of building my riser. What material have you used for the top of the riser? MDF/OBS/Plywood? Not sure how heavy each of those are (generally) but would want to go with the best quality material. Thanks in advance!
