    Isn't that what everyone's home theater is?
  2. I think now days, most are getting to this point. I have 3 setups and 2 out of those 3 are multichannel. The other is only 2 channel as it is only used for back ground music. The room I have my Jubelles in, is the room I primarily sit and listen to music. This is a multi channel listening room.

    ATMOS 7.1.2 or 5.1.4

    I agree on the 5.1 to 7.1, only reason I was adding it was the ability to, same with front highs. Sounds like you saying get rid of the rear surrounds and go with 4 atmos speakers. It will be a challenge for me to move the surround speakers to back corners, as rear is open to the bar. If I can come up with an easy solution, then all I have to do is relocate the front high and rear surround speaker wire to the atmos locations. IF the heights of the surround speakers in the corner isn't an issue, I may have an Idea, but would need smaller surround speakers. I know this has been asked before, but can I use any in celling speakers for atmos?

    ATMOS 7.1.2 or 5.1.4

    As I wrap up my main level refresh, I want to get back on my basement finishing project. Originally I was going to run a 7.1 system with side surrounds and rear surrounds. However, the rear surrounds would have to be suspend from the ceiling ( I understand that this probably isn't ideal). I can continue to go that route and run a Atmos 7.1.2 system or switch it up and run a 5.1.4 atmos system. What would you do and why?

    Anyone heard of this "DIY" Sub Company? GSG Audio

    I can get a Marty Cube flat pack shipped to the Lincoln NE area for around $200.00 plus the cost of each unit at $119.00, putting the cost of each unit around $169 each. Let me know if anyone is in the area and interested. If time permits, I will flood CL, Marketplace, and as asked GSG on Facebook. I only need one if someone is interested in more.

    I think we have the same rug being delivered tomorrow. Unfortunately it is going in the other room. The runner that Menards sales resembles this quit a bit. When it comes in, I way take a picture of it.

    i have something similar on my Cornwalls, but its more like a bottle cap with tabs that drive in to the cabinet. I want to protect the floors from them without affecting the sound. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Menards has runner rug material by the foot, some nice stuff that well really tie the room together. I have read that rubber is a no no on hardwood, so luckily i have some left over felt from the underlayment. When time permits (hopefully Sunday) i will assemble my speaker rug and have this resolved. I will report back. Thanks for all the suggestions. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    domes of silence

    My Cornwalls have what Michael C would refer to as domes of silence, which are round metal domes tacked into the corners of the base. I have recently installed hardwood flooring and wonder if i should leave them as they are (with fear of scratching the floors) or add some felt pads. If i add felt pads, would this affect any of the sound and if so, how can i counter act to any effect? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
