  3. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    It has been many years since I posted on this forum. Back in 2013 I put on a huge addition to a house I no longer own and part of that addition included a very large, 12 seat dedicated theater: (Image photo shopped, obviously). Old thread was for the Living Hope Theater on AVS. I sold that...
  4. Speakers
    I’ve done a lot of reading around the threads and it seems that the importance of left and rights in a home theater setup is highly subjective. I have a 5.1.4 setup with Polk OWM5s as left/right and rear surrounds. Height Atmos speakers are OWM3s. My center is a Emotiva C1+ and the sub is SVS...

    Hi all, I'm thinking of buying an amp to put in my basement HT (see signature for equipment) and just have some questions. I have 7.1 and I would only be able to afford a 3 channel amp. so I would use it for my front LCR speakers. 1. Would I notice a big difference in sound quality? is it...
  11. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hi all, this might be a dumb question, but I just want to make sure. is it possible to play something on your HT that gives distortion even at low volume levels? obviously it would cause distortion at high levels, but i'm specifically asking about low volume levels. a type of sound from a low...

    Hi Everyone, I want to preface this by saying that I have very little experience when it comes to speaker design/expertise, and I came here for recommendations that may be basic to you, but to me are a lot of research and work! I am looking to make a new 2.1 set up for our modest home theater...

  18. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    So I am ready to pull the trigger on a projector setup in the following family room (open, not ideal theater setup so lumens are more important than contrast). I have decided that UST is not a good value and would be nearly impossible with any pull down so that leaves me with moving up the fan...

    Hi all, I’m running the plex media server on an old Windows 10 machine plugged into my AVR in my basement. 4k movies are always buffering. but when I play these same movies on kodi or media player classic, its silky smooth. so I installed the Plex Media player and when I use that, the video is...
