    Are you running 2 tweeters...I only see a tweeter horn facing straight forward. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    Strong Rhetoric on China

    They own us because we owe them Billions of dollars. The whole world is laughing at us, and you say we are not a joke? Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  4. The reason I was asking is... In my old room I never boosted the bass on the Qpies, and in the new room I will be running the K402 MEH. I am pretty sure I will have plenty of power, but with the old room being around 4,000 cubic feet, and the new one being around 24,000 cubic feet we have a substantial difference in size...hence my question. Once the B&O amps are bridged so I can run in balanced mode...I will have 170w per horn, and 450w for bass. I am pretty sure I will have a ton of power, but it gets eaten up pretty quickly when you are boosting bass. Lol Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk
  5. When we had my HT up and running...I would tell people we were at about 1 watt on peaks when listening at reference levels. They would not believe me so I showed them the stack of Yamaha pro amps, and explained the green LED that was flashing would turn on when it saw a signal of 1 watt. this was for the horns, and bass bins.

    I ran 3 EV DH1As in my last setup with JBL 2360s, and will be running them again in a 7 channel setup of 3 K402 MEHs, and 4 small 18x10 horns. They are the best bang for your buck IMO. I have been able to pick them up for around $90-$100 a pop plus shipping on ebay. A lot of shippers jack up the shipping, but ask them if they will ship them to you in Priority mail flat rate boxes as they fit perfectly, and are much cheaper to ship. Out of 7 that I have bought, or a friend has bought none of them had any problems. These drivers are built like a tank, and last a long time!

    Yes time will tell.

    Strong Rhetoric on China

    China owns the USA, and will not allow the USA to fail as they would lose BILLIONS. The USA has way too much debt to China to play hard ball with them, and needs to back off IMO.
  9. Chris would you recommend using a bigger amp for the center and EQing the center to match the bottom end of the left and right when they are in the corners?

    Marantz AV8802A vs Anthem AVM60 vs Emotiva XMC-1

    Have you checked out the new NAD AVR...If you do not need balanced it has Dirac, and has expandable modules. I think it is around $1500 . Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    Anybody use this Mini DSP ?

    I miss my Dirac, and will be getting it again when I get enough of my setup done. You can download a PC version to try out I believe on the minidsp site.

    Reading the above review it appears that when you run the lower gain setting the noise goes down.

    Room Treatment: Diffusion

    Chris, what would you suggest I do with a 32' high boveda ceiling... I am thinking leave it alone since it is curved, and treat the walls below 15' to 20' only. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    Room Treatment: Diffusion

    Exactly what I found when we treated our room! No need to spend more money on the newest amps...you just moved up several levels in audio by treating the room vs buying the latest gear, and not sounding as good as treated room with less expensive gear. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    Room Treatment: Diffusion

    We used 2" of Roxul on our whole front wall, and we also got more clarity, and bigger soundstage. As far as the diffusers on the rear wall... I was always told you need 5' minimum from the diffuser to the seating. I do know that in my last room, treating the room made a bigger difference than buying more expensive equipment, and allowed me to hear things I never heard before from movies, and music.
