  1. It depends on how loud you listen. the room is considered large but, I don't think that is a big problem since you are using a sub. Send pics for a clearer understanding of the space. Speakers should be set to small when using a sub.
  2. Set the speakers to small if that has not been done and do a sub crawl for best placement of the sub.
  3. An isolation pad cuts out vibrations, it will not control sound traveling thru walls, floor and ceilings
  4. The speakers are not to large but, should form a triangle equidistant to the main seat. The seat should be off the back wall near the 1/3 mark of the room.
  5. They should work well in the back of the room. Good luck.
  6. I am an OSU fan and wish Michigan would get back to the status of Michigan teams of the past. It is not much of a rivalry over the past 10 years.
  7. Sorry to hear of the lost to your family. May she RIP. Prayers sent.
  8. Early this morning it was -23 but, we have warmed up to -18. I will go out to lunch today just to get a taste of frosty, lol.
  9. Depending on where you buy your tubes, they may be already burned in.
  10. I would not disable MCACC or set the speakers to large. Did you jack-up the bass? Are you in an apartment? You can always listen in the stereo mode late night. Which Pioneer avr do you have?
  11. For this question, zero sum gain. In other words, no one correct answer.
  12. I have the Marty cube. It is a great sub and can keep up with my larger subs with closer placement. I would not hesitate to buy one or two of the Marty Cube or any of the other Marty subs. The guy behind GSG Audio designed my Deep Invader and BackBum Buster subs. He is well known in the DIY AVS forum community and is highly respected for his designs and subs. His subs can stand up to JTR, PSA, SVS, etc. It really all comes down to the driver used and size. One of his subs is very cheap in comparison to the other manufactures. The true measure is price / performance. The finish is up to you!
  13. Ir sounds like a problem with setup or the room. If you are also going to use them for HT, setup the sub and see what you think. Keep asking question and other will help you get things right.
  14. I have two of the Marty, 2 Mini Marty and Marty cube. These are excellent subs and not just for HT. They are large subs and tuned low. I had some of these at the same time I had sealed subs and have all vented subs now. I heard no difference using the vented vs sealed due to the low tuning with music.
  15. Don't just plan on fixing the pop or surge. A 30 year old piece of gear needs a big financial investment. Just figure out is it worth it.
  16. No need to keep all the driver sizes the same. Get the biggest Atmos speaker that will fit in the ceiling. There is no real reason to keep all the drivers the same size. They all have different jobs and no reason to make the same tool work all these different jobs. I have 4 1/2 to 10 in. drivers in my system. The 4 1/2 in. stand out as much as the 10, 8 or 6 in. drivers.
  17. You can use an amp with the avr and use the avr as the preamp. If you get the RF 7 II or III's just use a phantom channel until you can get a better center. Sell the current center to help fund future speaker purchases. I use my avr as a preamp.
  18. OSU can leap frog Ok. They have given up fewer points per game and look like a national championship contender. It they do the same next week, it will come down to the wire with the committee. When Cordell Jones lead the Bucks to their last national title, many people thought they were not ready and clear underdogs.
  19. Urban should retire. There are more important things than football. He will also leave knowing he gave Michigan the biggest #$$ whipping in Big Ten History.
  20. Underdog and sweet Polly purebred take a victory lap. Go Bucks!
  21. I have not seen this OSU team all year. This has to be their best play of the year. Someone just put more wood on the fire with the score of 41-19 in favor of OSU.
