    SHORT TIME (Dabney Coleman)

    still haven't heard anything about this... I wonder if there's a way to get it made available for one of the MOD programs? David

    DVD Review HTF DVD Review: WALL*E

    great movie, what crappy packaging... They must really want you to rebuy this DVD over and over as it gets scratched to crap. My copy has been played once, pulled in and out of the packaging probably a half-dozen times, and it's already scratched up. Irony: buying a DVD in 'enviromental...

    Get Smart!

    I'd echo this post... I haven't seen anything about seasons 2-5 being released individually, and would like to know if I'm going to have to rebuy season 1 to get the whole package. Anyone know? David_P

    Timecop release May 27th anamorphic?

    I purchased the set, and wanted to confirm that Timecop is indeed anamorphic widescreen. Timecop and Hard Target are on one DVD (single sided, dual layer) and Street fighter / The Quest are on another. Timecop is actually 2.35:1 and Hard Target is 1.85:1, both anamorphic. On the DVD...

    Timecop release May 27th anamorphic?

    As part of a Van Damme quadruple action pack (Timecop / Hard Target / Street Fighter / The Quest): stated as 1.85:1... anyone know if the whole set is widescreen anamorphic? DP

    Subwoofer Program?

    After launching Excel 2003 on a new shreadsheet, go under Tools-->Macro-->Security Set Security to medium. If it's set higher than that, I dont' think the macros will run at all. At medium, it will ask you/warn you about a possibly dangerous macro, but the macro will launch if you OK it...

    Subwoofer Program?

    Ditto... I built this sub: using Unibox as the modeling tool. The actual measured values of Fb and Q of the system ended up being astonishingly close to the predicted values. David

    Subwoofer Program?

    You've dismissed the two best free ones... WinISD Pro and Unibox. If you're freaked about about excel macros, I've got my excel set up to ask me every time a macro launches to ask me. For Unibox set macro security to medium... this will stop all macros from running without permission.

    THE ABYSS anamorphic release? (MERGED THREAD)

    I have the two-disc Canadian version, and it has a DD5.1 track... it also says anamorphic, though it's not.

    THE ABYSS anamorphic release? (MERGED THREAD)

    Not so... In Canada, at least, there are a number of Abyss releases which state that they are anamorphic video, and DD 5.1. They are in fact letterboxed and DD 2.0

    Whats the Status of the Following Re SE?

    I for one am skeptical... There was a recent release (6 months ago) of a Schwarzenegger collection which allegedly included an anamorphic release of commando AND True lies as part of the package... NOT! The packaging specifically states anamorphic widescreen for all three titles...

    The Proposition (2006, Nick Cave) - Canadian version

    I purchased this a while back and just got around to watching it... Very violent, but a fabulously filmed movie. Great soundtrack as well. The version I have was released in Canada by Maple Pictures. Of interesting note is the fact that the specs on case state the film is "letterboxed"...

    BFD or LT for sealed sub EQ?

    A BFD (or more flexibly, a DEQ2496) will do SOME of what a LT can do, but not all. LT allows you to modify system Q, and increase low end extension (lower Fb). E.g., you can build a sealed system, size it such that it is power-limited (e.g. volume is small enough that the power you're...

    Need Help building a better sub than my AV15

    AFAIK, the ADA-1200 plate amp is not currently available. If you need that much power I would suggest you look at an offboard pro amp... Behringer ep2500 for example. Best drivers/cheapest currently available seem to be the TC-2000 series and the line of soundsplinter drivers. The Tempest...

    HD-DVD and Standard DVD Combo list:

    something to keep in mind... Most, if not all, of the combos listed are HD-15/DVD-5... single sided, both sides. In essence, by purchasing them, you are buying what was first generation DVD technology, something none of us would accept in todays world. You get a crappy SD DVD transfer...

    DIY full range center! Need some input...

    You lose some headroom is all. 3 db is audible... whether it matters depends upon how loud you listen, how big your room is, the amount of power you input, and the power handling-Xmax of the drivers you're using. David

    DIY full range center! Need some input...

    go to this link and poke around for bipole designs: Bipoles have four advantages: 1) greater efficiency (3db with drivers in parallel) 2) no bafflestep with drivers in phase... this means that the bass is typically fuller, and the...

    DIY full range center! Need some input...

    I can answer both questions with one answer... You DO NOT want to use four full range drivers in one box, all pointed at you. You will get horrendous "combing effects" as the high frequencies from the full range drivers become both additive and subtractive at your listening position. You will...
