Thanks, don't know if you missed a picture of my system that I posted earlier in this thread:

Since this picture was taken I added a MiniDSP 88A/BM and BlueSound Node 2i for high resolution streaming.
Nice looking Cat to boot, and even have a little toy on the right end of the table:D

The right side looks like it's missing a JBL Studio SUB 250P! I like the stepped look you got going on from sub to tv!

Nice looking room! I'm just curious why you're using two pairs of main speakers? It's fairly well known that playing two pairs of speakers like that can cause some nasty comb filtering and peaks/dips in the measured frequency response. Typically if you need something that plays louder, you're better off getting a larger (or higher sensitivity) single pair of speakers.

Hei,

I agree that 2 is better than the 4 speakers. For me is music a lot more "open" whit those 4 Arena speakers on a normal sound level.
About sub. I have tested it on the right side from Tv, but a very annoying frequency response at all levels.

About peaks/dips frequency responses. I haven't found or noticed on the app. But for sure, listening loudly, something annoying/scratching (my description) on at higher frequencies is there. Same time, lower frequencies move the air to the ears very nicely. Deep and soft at all levels.

Picture attached whit sub crossover 50-60Hz.

Martin.

Looking great!

Hi I'm new on the forum.
Since Ive started working (3years already), I tried to setup a decent home theater, mostly for gaming and movies, also for music.
I feel Ive hit the limits of what my room allows, but it sounds pretty dope anyway.
Also, looks nice.

Any tips on improving the sound, just by looking at the picture?

Welcome, nice room. Not bad for just... three years.

One thing you may want to try is painting that wall behind your TV a dark color.

Better yet, try this. Go to Jo Ann fabrics and ask them four a couple yards of black felt fabric and some thumb tacks (you’ll have to measure how much you need) and then thumb tack that to your back wall from speaker to speaker. It should only cost you maybe $20 to try this and it should improve your movie watching especially at night.

I’m new too.
How big is the screen? Ditto on darkening the surrounding walls.

Pull the center channel speaker all the way to the front of the cabinet to reduce reflection s from the cabinet surface. Even let it overhang a 1” or so.

Thanks, Ive spent most of my free time and money on this. Kind of a childhood dream ;-)
Indeed, the wall behind is way too bright, as is the room in general to have that real cinema experience.
That black felt fabric might resolve that a bit, is now added to the todo list.

I’m new too.
How big is the screen? Ditto on darkening the surrounding walls.
The screen is a mere 55 inch LG oled from 2017. Might upgrade soon, maybe to a 65 inch. Viewing position is about 2.1 metres (sorry, am from Europe) from the screen.
Might want to wait with the darkening of the walls until I improved the screen.

yes, that might improve it quite a bit.
Most recently I moved the center speaker to the cabinet, instead of in front of the cabinet, which improved the dialogue significantly.
This required a different stand for the screen, the center channel speaker wouldn't fit underneath the standard LG stand.
This might require the fronts to be moved in order to align with the center, but it is worth a try.
Also added to the todo list.
