    Need help finding a Audax tweeter

    I am not the most technical for speaker specs. I know they don't sell the exact one I need. Can anyone help me figure out if there is a close match that I could use?

    Audyssey setup and speaker polarity

    I took apart both speakers and verified they were wired properly. I was pretty careful with the Audyssey instructions as well.

    Audyssey setup and speaker polarity

    I recently got a new Denon receiver with this feature and used it to set up my speakers. I have always done it manually and when it was done I was not happy with the sound. I read through the long q and a post and re tested as it recommended with similar results. It also said my left front...

    A few issues with Sharp LC-32D40U

    I purchased a new Sharp Aquos about a month ago and tuned it with Avia. I am getting a weird faint redness on some flesh tone areas that I can't seem to get rid of. It looks like the skin is flushed or rosey where it shouldn't be. Any ideas what could be causing that? Another issue I am...

    57 inch or 65 inch, which would be better from a viewing distance of about 14 feet.

    BTW my viewing distance is 12.5' and it is just fine

    57 inch or 65 inch, which would be better from a viewing distance of about 14 feet.

    I just picked up a 65H84 from Onecall and love it. I ditched the protective screen right away as it was terrible. Haven't done a 56pt yet but with just Avia it looks pretty good. Very happy with the value out the door under $2K shipped

    Problems with Sharpness on Avia

    I was just tuning my new tv last night, Toshiba 65H84 and when I was adjusting sharpness there was absolutely no change of the test pattern. Is there a setting counteracting the changes? On all my others TVs I have never had a problem and always can tune it. Any advice?

    Problems switching from Dish to Cable

    I just recently switched from Dish Network to Cable(Comcast) and the new signal seems much worse than Dish. Even on my direct view tv I am getting lots of noticeable jaggies especially noticeable on reds, the resolution is horrible. It is more pronounced on my 65" RPT. What is the deal...

    Best 57-65" widescreen under $2000

    I haven't been in the market for a tv in a while now and need to get up to speed quick. I am looking for a widescreen between 57-65". What models offer the best all around performance under $2000? This is 75/25 for tv/dvd respectively.

    General woodworking question

    I am looking at getting an air nailer of some type. What is the best all around for cabinets, speakers and crown molding? Would a brad nailer be sufficient or is a finish nailer needed? I haven't owned either so any opinions are welcome.

    Surrounds: In wall or in ceiling?

    I will take a listen this weekend and see...I am still skeptical that they can sound anywhere near what they should. FWIW the front 3 and rear 3 are all MK matched speakers so the timbre should be no problem.

    Surrounds: In wall or in ceiling?

    My parents are setting up a 6.1 HT and when I went to check out the progress this weekend I noticed the company installed the rear surrounds and rear center in the ceiling. I don't have the model number but the speakers are MK inwall speakers. I know the correct placement per Dolby is parallel...

    Season Finale!!!!! Sopranos Show #13 "WhiteCaps"

    The seperation aspect between Carm and Tony is very intriguing for how it will play out next season but I don't think we were left with enough tension amongst the other players. With the extended episode there should have been more IMO. Although well acted there was too much back and forth...

    Sopranos Season 4 Review and Discussion Thread Shows 1-12

    Decent episode but mostly setup for the last 2 IMO. Lots of tension between families and I don't think it will end up well. Am I the only one sick of Janice?

    Sopranos Season 4 Review and Discussion Thread Shows 1-12

    I agree best show this season and reminded me why I watch. The first 3 episodes were just alright IMO but this one had good story lines and lots of suspense. THings could have gone a lot of different ways. I don't really like the way they are doing the Furio and Carm flirting though. Seems...

    Tell me how feasible this idea is

    I am toying around with the idea of my next sub. Currently have a dual Shiva Sono and am very happy but as always there is never enough good bass. After seeing the "closet" sub on M. Knapps site I had a few ideas. My HT is set into an alcove in my family room. THe size is 6' wide and 2.25'...

    How to get Laminate home...

    When I ordered mine it came rolled up from HD in a box, good side out though(seemed the nature curve of the material). If you had to cut it you can use a pair of tin snips and they are easy to carry.

    Loud bass effects on fish?

    Yeah I know there will be a difference in the transmission through the mediums. I just didn't want to setup my sub near the fish if there was a possibility that I could injure them which it sounds like I don't have to worry about it.
