  1. Speakers
    Hello, First time posting on the forum so hopefully I get this right. I'm fairly new to home theater and besides using soundbars and cheap Costco type of sound systems I don't have much experience in the field. A few years ago I paid over 25K for a local Control4 dealer to install a bunch of...

    Hello all! I was hoping this awesome community could provide some assistance in helping me match a center channel to my Quad Z1s. I have been having quite a bit of trouble finding any info to help me with my decision. So here's the deal...Quad does make a ZC center channel, but it's...

    I just bought a new Denon S760H receiver from Costco and am having a problem hearing the voices from my center channel when listening to video with Dolby 5.1 surround. The center volume is fine when not in surround mode but gets washed out when the surround sounds are active. I used the...

    Specifically, I am looking at this speaker: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=15700 Would it be appropriate to use 7 of just that speaker in a 7.2 installation? Would there be a downside compared to using 3 of them for LCR matched up with 4 of the 8" 2 ways of the same brand for the...
  5. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hi First of, I'm not a huge hifi geek, so everything I write here will be from research done online. So feel free to correct me all you want :) And English is my second language, so hope I got all the terms correct. I'm trying to decorate my living room and am in the process of designing the...

    Hi, I am not well versed with home theater setup, but I bought a house and it has five built in speakers in the living room (the previous owners had some kind of home theater setup).

    Hello, I would like to choose a pair of speakers for my living room 50% music 50% ht for my first proper hi-fi set. My living room is 17m2 which means that I wouldn't be able to push the speakers very far from the wall (about 20cm), so I'm looking for a pair of speakers that aren't too loud in...

  9. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Pardon the rudimentary drawing, but I think it will do for my questions. Please also excuse my many questions and random thoughts, but I certainly appreciate the advice! I can do up to 13.2 with my Denon AVR x6700H. In my old room, I was using three Outlaw 2200 monoblock amps for LCR and the...

  12. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    I bought 250 ft. of 12/2 speaker wire for my front L/C/R speakers; it's white. Should I exchange it for black? Not sure I should bother, but I'm concerned about it being visible from behind an AT screen and/or false wall.

    I've been doing some research and watching youtube videos on how and what to best pair with my receiver. However, I am little lost and could use some input from an expert. My goal is to set up a 3.0 system (unless otherwise advised). My current gear: TV: Sony X90J 50" Receiver: Marantz NR 1403...

    Within this layout would it be better to have a 7.1.2 or a 5.1.4 Dolby atmos setup? With soundproofing done of course. Roof to ceiling height would be between 9.5 to 10 feet Appreciate the help!
  16. Speakers
    The obvious answer would be that i just dont like them, or they just arent that good. But they were presented to me by my grandpa, who paid a good sum back then when he bought it. I've already told him that i've tried multiple positions and variations, but i just cant make they sound good in my...
