    • My gut tells me to get 2 subs. But my wallet says one sub and 2 surrounds. We’ll see. Maybe this tax return will help pay for the extra sub 😎👍🏼   That’s the cool/fun part of HT. You add or take away as needed. I’m working my way up to building a 7.2.4 system. Time and money. Hahaha
    • woof....this is tempting, but I already picked up some empty cabs today
    • A while back when it was just 5.1 the bi-directional speakers did great, they helped spread sound around better. But with all the channels out there now I don't think it's that important anymore. Just a guess really i have no idea, I am stuck at 6.1 and not going to change. All 6 of the speakers are the same size and I have no place to put any on the sides and I would rather leave it like this than to use a smaller speaker, sounds great anyway. The one sub is shared with the HT and 2 ch, but it's a huge sub with no room for another this size. It's only used for Tv and movies, were 80% 2 Ch anyway which is a different system.
    • Thanks to all who chimed in on this thread. I decided not to buy these as the estate was wise to what they would bring in Japan and I wasnt willing to spend that much on speakers. Brad
    • Glad to here this, no matter what's causing the improvement it's a good thing. It's great when things do as you hope.
    • I very rarely watch a movie more than once but I'll listen to CDs over and over and over again.  As such, CDs represent a much better value for me.  I don't buy movies anymore.
    • 50 uf cap and .78mh 16-18 gauge coil   Would like to go hundred or less. Was thinking clarity cap at 51 bucks, value is 47uf. Would the 47 uf make much difference in crossover point? Could only find one cap at 50 uf which is the Dayton audio, all others where at 47 uf.    If I do change out the coil would the solen 14 gauge be a good choice?    
    • It does resemble a false arailea, the big difference besides price is the Maple can take freezes. I like false arailia's I had a few over the hears as houseplants. Well it looks like that kind of J maple, there are over 300 variety's of J maples.   I have no idea which one is poisonous but I would guess the Rhododendron. Only because they do not grow here and I have never heard of that. Actually the Azalea's were made from the Rhododendron, they are in the same family. It may have been bred out when they designed the Azalea ?   Our daughter started doing bees about a year ago, all I know about it is she gave me a quart of honey, I don't even know if they still do it ?
    • I have small book shelf surrounds, wonder how much better the sound is coming from a bi-direction surround vs mono-directional speaker? I’m sure it comes down to just quality of speaker    
    • About 18 months ago I picked up some Heresy I in raw birch.  The cabinets are pretty ratty, but they sound great and the drivers/crossovers are in good shape.  This week I bought some empty Heresy cabs in black that are very nice.  I think I'm going to swap all the components over to the HFB cabs, which leaves me with some ugly old cabs to play with.  I'm thinking a CS-1 project is in order, but I need to decide on woofers (among other things).   Are the K22/K24 preferable, or is the K28 a better choice?  Then there's also other options like this: https://www.parts-express.com/eminence-beta-12a-ii-12-driver--290-408.   I'm hoping to just cut the existing motorboard to fit the larger horn, but if that's a bad idea I'm all ears.   Any other recommendations or tips for a project like this?
