Hi everyone
Since i will be asking ye lads about my diy Tempest enclosure soon enough, I will let myself break the ice with just 4 pics of my home cinema. I am just a student at the moment so just waiting for a job for the summer to save up for the Tempest driver and a PE 250amp. I am making the 214L inclosure. Have to get it sent fom ye in America to little Ireland over here. I might need a bit of advice during the making.
Any way here is the link, what ye think?

2 shitty Pioneers speakers from old hifi (be replaced soon)
Pioneer 626d dvd player

And Mitsubishi tv and video (used in the old days of prologic)

well i did say there was only 4 pics. I took a few more with the projector in use but they came out very blurred so i didn't want to put them on the site. I shall try again put a few more. I know its a bit basic for this forum, but hey I'm irish and we like to lag behind in most things.

I hope you clicked on the "Home cinema" folder.

The stupid folder was set on private, sorry. After all this just to see 4 photos it is going to be a bit of a anticlimax.
Will some one posta reply just to see if i got the stupid thing right this time cheers.

What's weird is I read your post thinking of a fast speaking irish accent after I heard u were from ireland. Anyways:
Ahh, that is one compact HT. I could imagine tuning your sound to be a problem with such limited space cause I have a small room as well.
---------
Do the speakers sound alright with those sidewall reflections?
I would also move the components away from strong bass nodes such as the corner of your room. Would it look ok to stack them?
What I did in my HT was move the bed against the backwall and put the HT on the opposite. This gave more room to bring the speakers away from the backwall to lose some boomy sounding bass.
Actually, since your speakers look like satellites it probably won't make much of a difference... The tempest will be a VERY nice addition to small rooms. I use a 214L adire alignment tempest in my 10'x10' room as well as in my car. My bass suckout was around the 70-120hz mark which wasn't too hard to fix. I also found constructive peaks against the sidewall that sounded similar to sticking your head right next to the moving driver. :)
good luck $$
