    Surround speakers- matching or not

    My fronts and surrounds are matched. My rear (7.1) were an old pair of surrounds. I can't tell that the 4 don't match. YMMV.

    Weeds season 4

    I really like this season and like that they are re-engaging the old gang. I thought the store scene were the after the third theft, the back room worker locks the door and says "Seniora, that's the third time. You keep letting criminals in here".

    Ebert & Roeper Move On / New Hosts Announced

    I still like the show. It was neat when there was other guest reviewers. To me, it's not so much that I agree with Roeper's views, it just gave me a snapshot at upcoming movies. And who cares what time it airs? The only live TV is watch is sports.

    A few questions about extension ladders

    1) The size of the ladder is going to depend on how many stories. Typical houses will have gutters at 9' +/-. A 24' extension ladder would be sufficient to reach the gutters on a 2 story house. 2) Place a towel on the top of your truck. Load the ladder so it sits in the rear of the bed and...

    Another "need legal advice" thread

    Good call on Walmart camera. Also check with Walmart management. I am sure there were some witnesses. Best to capture their information now instead of trying to track them down in the future.

    Another "need legal advice" thread

    Georgia is a comparative negligence State. For simplicity sake, lets say your claim is worth $1000. But you contributed 10% to the negligence of the accident. You would only be able to receive 90% of the $1000. That is a good thing. There are States that use contributory negligence. Under this...

    Another "need legal advice" thread

    I am very sorry to hear about your father's accident. The fact that the lawyer you spoke with gave you three options is telling. If the case were clear cut - from a legal standpoint - the lawyer would have been all over it for contingency. What State did the accident happen? It can take an...

    Another WWYD Question

    TV Repair guy just left indicating that my 10 year old Mitsu 63" RPTV needs about $500 of work. This, of course, is a rough estimate and it cost me $100 to get it. It was calibrated by Greg Loewen. My room is appox 13 x 20 with a viewing distance of 14 feet. There is one sliding door with...

    In need of an Audio Rack

    Have you considered building your own? Do a search for flexi rack. I made my own and it came out great. You could have HD/Lowes make your cuts. You will need to drill, paint, and assemble (you might have to cut the threaded rod if you cannot find the correct length).

    Insulation board

    Check you local yellow pages for insulation companies. They are available, just a little difficult to locate. You could also call Owens Corning (1-800-get-pind) and ask them. The online dealer located is weak.

    Starting an audio business

    You need to first identify and qualify your market. What is your competition selling? How big are their operations? Each manufacturer will have their own requirements for authorization. You may need to present a business plan to them for consideration. What do you have to offer them? Expertise...

    Acoustics of movie posters

    No, I was not going to leave the glass on. I did not think it would work. Moving the pictures to the hall would displace family photos. That will help my popularity! Compromises : )

    Acoustics of movie posters

    I have a combined family/HT. Three walls are panelling and 1 is brick (an acoustical nightmare). I built several absorption panels that helped a bit but the WAF was not good. To make matters worse, the wife purchased several movie poster and had mounted in glass frames. She did not want to...

    Cat 5 v. 10 GA Speaker wire

    Ditto what Michael said. I built some fancy bi-wire cables spinning 8 lengths of 16g wire into 4 cables for each front speaker. I flexwrapped each cable and carefully terminated the ends. After swapping with my HD 12g, I could not detect any noticable change in sound characteristics. They...

    Networking Question

    I tried asking at Best Buy and got the answer I expected "Sure you can but I can't explain it". Here is the question: I have a desktop and a work notebook. I have them networked together using a router/switcher. The notebook operates on a VPN so the notebook and desktop cannot talk to each...

    THX Question

    Don't forget the THX certified speaker wire. I absolutely guarantee that they will transmit electricity from your receiver to your speakers. I think I read that you can even buy THX certified power cords. If true, these will transmit electricity from your outlet to your receiver.
