  1. Lucky man you are Chris to have a saw like that!
  2. I do know that the balanced MiniDSP 2x4 is noisier than the unbalanced, as we had hiss with my JBLS before we went to the unbalanced. I had a xilica 3060 before, and it was great. I guess I will have to look for another 3060. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    La scala cable replacement

    Back in the early 80s when I had my LaScalas... I bought 12 gauge Monster Cable which is about the same as Monoprice IMO, and is what I would buy now (Monoprice). Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    New Dolby Restrictions--BAD ?

    It is more than that...it is trying to eliminate the other competitors in surround sound. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk
  5. My EV fits fine... we transported it to Mexico in the box. I think there was about 1/2" of clearance still. I was worried about clearing the woofers, and volume of the internals.
  6. Are my dimensions ok, or does the box need to be bigger...horn fits fine with EV dh1a, but I have not tried the EV woofers yet.
  7. I hope my dimensions are ok... If not I will repurpose the cabinet to the garage. Remember O am using the EV DH1As. 26 5/8" deep 26" x 40 1/4"
  8. Thanks Chris. I have attached a pic of the cabinet in the proposed position for the right channel. I am not sure if I should mount it that way since I would need to raise it to ear height...might be easier if it was mounted like yours if I can not angle it. Luckily the equipment will be on the loft, with B&O Icepower amps (bridge to mono, and running for cables) installed next to or in the cabinets. I have not decided what I am going to use for crossovers since you recommended against the minidsp ones.
  9. Thanks Chris, When you are saying to angle them do you normally angle them to your ears or to a point behind the head? I am also debating on putting them in the corners as I am thinking of doing a Auro3d setup, and they want a 30 degree per side angle...which puts them smack dab in the corners. How will this affect it?
  10. Should I just leave them resting vertically (horn facing the mlp)on the floor then?
  11. I am about ready to start cutting I to my 402...I will be running mine vertical, and was hoping to to just tilt them upward. How is this going to affect the sound? I have a very live room that has not been treated yet with stone floors, clay walls, and a curved clay ceiling 30' high.
  12. I have a KT1132 that we tested when I purchased my k402 (BNIB)...make me an offer, and it might be yours. I am using EV DH1a drivers instead. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    Some updates... 1: Measured out the angles, and it looks like the surrounds will be right where the loft wall meets the side walls. I need to work out a mount that will give me the correct angles now. 2: Measured out the front angles, and if I do it per Auro3d... I need to put my speakers in the front corners...not sure if this will work out better for acoustics or not as the fireplace is so close. The other issue is I was planning on installing the rails for the screen in the corners, and with the speakers there it might interfere with the rails. In addition the speakers would be partially behind the screen with the rest in full view. Now in one respect this might actually work out better as I could install Roxul behind the screen material where the speakers are not. This could make a nice difference in acoustics.
