  1. I think if you adjust your levels per channel you will get the center to sound good.

    How much toe-in do you use

    I usually set my speakers to cross about a foot behind my head. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    New 20 watt amp from Schitt Audio

    When I was waiting for my Yamaha c4/m4 setup we drove my La Scalas with the headphone jack on my roommates boombox, and everyone in the dorm thought I had a big stereo! Yo do not need a big amo with La Scalas, Belles, or Khorns. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    Solid State Amps That Sound Tube-Like....

    I am waiting for 3 ACAs to be shipped, and I will start my first ever electronics build. Pretty cheap at $129 per amp, if you ask me for the parts only kits. I will design and build my own amp cases most likely...looking for heat sinks now. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    The ceiling is concave. I have read you should not dampen more than about 25% of the area, and I will be less than that for sure. We have a nasty echo right now...even with the windows open. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    Nice video about why people like horns

    I am sure he has too, since he is a reviewer who goes to the Audio Shows all around the world. I cannot figure why he acts surprised. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    What I like is when you invite some one over who has spent big $$$, and they hear your setup, and want to know they can get theirs to sound as good. [emoji23] You go to their place, and see there is absolutely zero room treatments, no mlp spot or speakers even setup for sound, just plopped where they think they will look good.

    What I am planning on doing is having a French cleat made out of plywood going all the way around the room just below the loft , and then hanging acoustic absorbing panels all the way around the room. I then will put a panel in the center between the windows from the panels to the floor, and also bass traps in the corners from the panels to the floor. The loft might also get a row of panels too. I will also make panels for first reflections the best I can. We are thinking of either grey panels or having artwork printed on the panels too. We have one small Persian rug now on the floor in front of our center channel, and will be getting 2 more at least. I want to have a minimum of 1 Persian rug in front of the front 3 speakers, and maybe in front of the surrounds too. My last room was a fully sound treated 2 car garage, and it sounded great... I doubt this one will be anywhere near as good, but we will give it the best we can while maintaining the aesthetics of the house, Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    This is what I am dealing with 19' wide room 32' high curved ceiling (The part from the window wall to the kitchen is where the curved ceiling is...it is all the way up including above the loft which ends where the kitchen can be see in the pics), and 46' long. Front , and side windows will be covered with theater sound curtains as a start. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    I do not think diffusion will work in this house with all the live surfaces we already have. I did have (2)4x4 DIY RPG Diffusion panels years ago in an apartment and they worked great. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    Nope. We have a 32' curved ceiling in a room that is clay brick (floor, and walls), a stone floor, an 10' glass wall on the wall behind the speakers...gonna be a nightmare trying to tune this room. Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk
