    Room sound correction

    Hello, I have to arrange a HT in a dedicated room, its dimensions are 19’ 8” x 8’ 6”, but the problem is its height: 6’ 10”... It’s obviously a very reflective environment and you can hear a lot of echoes when you talk because the walls are flat with no objects right now. I want to get a good...

    Reviews of DIY Subwoofers?

    I see lots of information about building them but really nothing solid as far as a review as to how they perform. I am thinking of building a subwoofer project during this downtime and looking at the Dayton UM 18 in a 4 cubic foot sealer enclosure. Possibly doing 2 of them in a slightly larger...

    Wall vs a cheap diy screen

    First of all, thanks for your warm welcoming, Ronald, as I came here looking for a piece of advice and yes, I'm already enjoying your forum. Recently I got Epson 3100 and now I'm hooking it with my laptop and PS. My gaming/home theater room is a basement room with no windows, so no ambient...

    Design a new subwoofer box for HT. Triple chamber anyone?

    I got a good deal on a THX approved EV TL440 cabinet from a theater. I've been using it as a HT sub with the step down kit installed and active EQ. (Lowers box f3 to 24 from 33hz, 6db boost at 29, and 12db rolloff below). So far it's working pretty good with being driven by a Crown cTS 1200 in...

    Does anybody have a good reference for a company that sells DIY speaker kits? I remember there were a couple that I heard of in the '80's but I can't remember the names or if they are still in business.. Basically looking for tall tower speakers that sound good for Hi-Fi and movies.. Thanks!

    Cheap Open Baffle, Full Range Driver DIY

    DIY iPod Classic protective film

    I thought I'd post this for fun though I think it has a limited appeal. Back in the day when I bought a brand new iPod 5G in 2005, I used a protective film from a company called Power Support. They make great protect films and I've used them on my iPhones. The film is still on my iPod 5G and...

    DIY Cylindrical Enclosures

    Sorry for the long post... So I was contemplating building a pair of floor-standing speakers and I looked at quite a few different designs. I considered going with the classic sealed, square box, but it seems that lately there's been a general movement towards ovular shaped towers in high-end...
