    opinions on IR repeaters....

    Ted & Tony, If you have eight or less components to control, you could also go with a 789-44 controllers. It could control up to eight components (two emitter with each of the four connections) and cost a little less. You may want to check out some kits that Xantech offers that comes with one...

    Carpet installed in the basement

    Check moisture by taping duct tapes on all sides of a 1'X 1' plastic on the floor for about a week. If moisture built up underneath you may have moisture problem and should look at products and methods mentioned above. If no moisture, I would recommend the densest and thickest padding you could...

    Jason, I would love doing a ported design but how? The space is more like 22"X22"X22". Shoule I just built a box as big as I can to fit into this space and put a port in it? What would be the port size & length and bracing construction? With a ported design, do I still need a 1KW amp? Don't want...

    Thanks Jason, no I'm not lock into the sealed design. I do however need this box to fit into a 23"X23"X23" enclosure. I also would love to hear people with experience with the Dayton 15" TITANIC MKIII SUBWOOFER KIT for ~$690. How it sound and compared to other commercial as well as other DIY...

    A question for the electricians out there...

    50 amp is plenty, chances are that not all devices will be on at once even the arcade stuff.

    Wanted to see if anyone have experience with the Dayton 15" TITANIC MKIII SUBWOOFER KIT for ~$690. If I were to purchase the MKIII driver and 1KW amp seperatly, I should just get the kit so there is very little building. BTW, the cabinet for the kit is about the max I could used ~22"^3. Any...

    I can't believe the difference

    I agreed totally about cable upgrade, you get what you paid for. I spent $1000 on cables with my $200 receiver. WoW, what a different, it sounds better than any $1000 receiver without cables. :D :D Just kidding.

    Not my Comcast, we have one that does regular, digital and HDTV. I don't think she know what she is talking about.

    John, If you still out here. How would I know when the two week special will start? As per our earlier telecon (you may not remember), I'm very much interested in the AV15 when it is available. Good luck with your venture.

    Carpeting experts please

    Sound like end of the roll to me if it is running the width of the carpet and located near a wall. This is pretty expensive good at $4/sq ft ($36/sq yd) so if you really not happy with it ask the company to come back and fix it. If the problem can't be fixed, ask for a replacement. They would...
