    LaScala Subs Ideas

    I'd stick with a horn-loaded sub. It would blend in much better.
  2. I'm an imaging freak. The guy I bought my KHorns from wanted me to hear his 802D. They didn't image at all but he was very happy with the 'upgrade' over the KHorns. Got the KHorns home and they didn't image at all! Turns out one of the crossovers had the mid-driver wired in reverse polarity. Once that was sorted out they disappeared from the room. I'm sure that 802D properly setup can be awesome. Those I heard were not.
  3. I've got one of those too (60-inch F8500). Sweet picture. Inky blacks.
  4. The problem is that there is no such 'max'. The volume is gain requested, and what you think is requesting 125W peaks might be 1000W peaks, which will be clipped and sound bad, and may damage your speakers. Back in the day we had VU-meters to have a better guess at the power we were feeding our speakers. But I guess since people saw numbers of 1W or less often enough, that wasn't good information to give in order to sell new 100W+ receivers, so they got rid of them.
  5. I defeated the x-curve in my KPT-100 crossovers.
  6. I agree with the pro cinema line; I use X-Curve-defeated KPT-100. But without a rear wall to hang them on... you'll need something on stands? Or ceiling speakers?
  7. 'Watching' your viewing history, not literally watching you... Some TVs have cameras of course, which can be used to remote control the TV and for Skype. I don't use it on mine; too much of a hassle and I don't do much with my TV except turn it on and off and navigate Netflix.
  8. If you haven't heard them in the room, it's hard to draw conclusions. The room does soooo much.
  9. Does he want only people living in the US to answer?
  10. Honestly, if you are outputting to HDMI and watching Blurays, I don't see the point of anything beyond a sub-$100 Sony player. I have two. They have worked well for a few years. They are disposable if they ever break down. They gets the bits off the disk and onto the HDMI transport.
  11. Finally saw San Andreas. Minor nits that don't give away anything... Must he do everything? Fly the helicopter, hit the autopilot button and jump out to the rescue, really? Weren't there two SAR techs in the back seat, so the second one could have gone out? At the end, that boat propeller was indestructible! And it never tangled up any debris either. Ah well. There are much bigger gaps in the movie, but those little things bothered me.
  12. I have an Elunevision electric & tensioned AT screen and like it a lot. It comes down in from of a plasma 60-inch for movies, and partially blocks a door to a second media room that the kids use. So I don't leave it down when not in use. I have had it for a couple of years and have had no issues with it. Highly recommended. See my galley for pics.
  13. So relabeled Jamo. Had to happen sometime.
