  1. Heresy Stands

    As I was reading and got to the parts about your colored guide coats, I thought this is a car guy. The next pic I notice the truck bed in the background:-) Nice job! Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  2. **SOLD** Klipsch RF-83's (Chicago/Milwaukee Area)

    FYI you may want to check with your local Grayhound station for shipping quotes. They can be very reasonable for larger items. Buyer just picks it up at his local station. Actually I think I booked my shipment through busfreighter.com and it was cheaper than Greyhound's site and I still just dropped off at station. Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  3. Jersey HBR $400 Central Florida

    Thanks for all you help guys. The wire connection on the back is just two screws. No recessed cups. Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  4. Jersey HBR $400 Central Florida

    I've had these on craigslist in central Florida for a little while and have had some offers but none that want to make me part with them. Cabinets are fairly clean but do have some areas where the top layer of laminate has been broken off along the edge. When I return from vacation I can take any additional pictures necessary. I bought them back in about 2002 and never asked original owner any specific details about them. Since I've had them listed a few people want to know what version they are and I've not a clue so I thought I'd list here and ask at the same time. I'm asking $400. Told wife I'd sell theses to help offset the 83's but as more time goes by it's water under the bridge:-)
  5. RF-7 $600 BIN (Naples FL)

    Guy in Orlando has 3 new replacement woofers on eBay now. 120 obo plus shipping. You could buy the 7's in Naples and swing up to Orlando for the woofers Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  6. Music Recommendation

    No problem. This was introduced to me back in 91 because we were into car audio and it sounds great there too. Ironically over the years I've heard their songs used as background music in many movies. Enjoy Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  7. Music Recommendation

    I normally hang out in the Home Theater section but wanted to listen to some old cd's tonight on the 83's and came across one I never hear much about but thought you guys would appreciate the variances in the sounds. If you don't have the CD just You Tube them. The CD is from the group Yello and the album title is "Flag". Songs such as The Race and Tied Up sound great and incorporate a lot of multichannel imaging. And yes it is the same group that did the 80's song "Oh yeah"
  8. DIY Speaker Placement and Screen Size

    Well I was off today and had a chance to work on the screen mounting a little. I was still deciding just how to configure the brackets when I stated so as a result I'll be running to Lowe's once again for more bolts and brackets. Still have fine tuning to do as well as fine something other than my old set of Heresy's to hold the 64. The AT screen is great so far... Thanks Clinton for the encouragement to do it.

    Great tips with laser and plumb bob, I'll use for sure. Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  10. DIY Speaker Placement and Screen Size

    Guess I just am being paranoid but thought if I could slot a hole here or there when mounting, if something wasn't quite straight I'd have another option. Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  11. DIY Speaker Placement and Screen Size

    Ok so my screen is done but clearly should have put more thought into the mounting. I need the screen off the wall about 14" so planned to copy this method and even bought these same brackets. But now I'm feeling the need to incorporate some type of adjustment to help with screen alignment. Anyone have a simple idea? My frame Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  12. DIY Speaker Placement and Screen Size

    Well Joann's white fabric over Joann's black looks great to me. I have never held any of the other popular Spandex options but it looks a lot better than my BOC. Seems much brighter and an improved contrast. Once I get the projector and screen fully aligned I should be really happy. Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
  13. DIY Speaker Placement and Screen Size

    My HT1075 has no memory or electronic zoom. It does have a manual vertical lens shift which helps. One thing not helping here is that I'm doing my testing flat on the wall with blackout cloth and my new screen is going to be AT and pulled off the wall about 15" making the final projected image a bit smaller. I guess I should just go ahead and make my screen and worry about aligning image later. Progress today. Yes you can make Dados' with a compound miter saw. Rudimentary however. Got the idea of using scissor hinges on AT screen sides to give vertical adjustment along with minimal fore and aft adjustment in lieu of a sliding projector cart. Anyone done this?

  15. DIY Speaker Placement and Screen Size

    Thanks for the information Gary. I've done more experimentation and it seems like based on my room size, desired speaker location and my viewing preferences that the 2.35:1 can only be a max of 120" wide (not diagonal). When I put in a 16:9 movie and reduce the image size, I'm still way too high, overshooting the "screen". So I'm guessing what I need is one of those super high-end lenses (not happening) or to build a sliding mount. I have read and searched the few other posts out there but haven't seen anything that describes determining the proper slope over distance to achieve desired results. Are there "fixed" numbers that can be plugged into a known formula. I'm NO GOOD at math, but I do have a friend that's great with AutoCad and is willing to help me design something respectable. Any formulas? Sent from my Z970 using Tapatalk
