    After reading the books by Toole (Sound Reproduction: The Acoustics and Psychoacoustics of Loudspeakers and Rooms) and Geddes (Premium Home Theater : Design & Construction) I have a few residual questions. It is very likely that I did not comprehended 100% of what I read and that these leftover...

    Hello all. I feel sort of dumb asking this but..here it goes. I've got a Rane - ME-60 Equalizer that has some RCA hookups on the back. I've also got a Yamaha RX-365 receiver that has what is labels as MD/CD-R In and Outputs. Am I completely wrong in thinking the equalizer could be hooked up...

    Hey everyone, Just recently added a PB-2000 pro to my current setup. To give a brief overview it's a 5.1 channel setup: All 5 speakers are 6.5" in-ceiling speakers hooked up to an Onkyo NR-646 receiver. I don't have a dedicated theater room so I'm using my living room over now. The front 3...
  7. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I'm wondering if there's a better way of setting up my tv and speakers. I have a 55in tv with 3.1 speaker setup. The center channel is an Infinity ref RC263. I was intending to put the center on the top shelf, but the steel bar covers about .25in of the tweeter. So I'm thinking I should get a...

    Hello, This is my first post on this forum, as I am building a new home in Nothern VA. An image of my HT is attached below. It is 12.5 X 25 feet long.

    Hey guys, So I've set-up my new mackie MR624 monitors to my computer using a 3.5mm to dual xlr splitter. The sound works but half of the source is missing. For example, when I listen to a song the instrumentals are fine but the vocals are turned all the way down. I've checked the balance...

    Greetings, I would appreciate input on my setup and a few questions as I plan for a new AVR and display. Summary: I think my surrounds are too high, but they're at the same plane as the front. Should I lower them? How would I do 7.1 in my space and would it be worth the effort? I'm...
  12. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I have an important inquiry: how is it that I can configure a 7.1 surround sound system in a small (100 in. x 72 in. x roughly 72 in.) room? I'm not necessarily looking for a home theater kit that comes with the typical large floor speakers and desk monitors; rather, I'm looking to set up seven...
