My room isn't exactly square. At the largest lenth and width it is 18x18 but the entry of the room is bumped in about 4 feet on one side of the room making that side of the room 18x14. I am not sure how to get a picture of the room posted here. I

As a suggestion, could you use a portable air conditioner in that room? Provided you could vent it properly. What are you using for projector and is there any lens in front of it?

Mix some red wine in scrambled eggs and you get green eggs. Your welcome.

I've looked a little further into projectors and found a few things. There is not much available at the brick and mortar level. I had hoped to be able to see one of the low end projectors to see what I would be getting in the way of image quality.

Well, I've found a way of positioning my M80s that provides an entirely new perspective on their sound! By moving my speakers closer together and then slightly toeing them out (rather than in, toward the listening position), I get more reflected sou

Correction. An average human sitting idle gives off about 440 BTU at about 125 watts of power an hour. My odd number above (3500 BTU) was when I was factoring out 8 people sitting in my theater for an hour and I forgot to divide by 8 again.

No, all amplifiers don't "sound the same"; all competently designed amplifiers operated within their designed power limits have no "sound".

bridgeman, the furnace in our house isn't a "high efficiency" one, so it needs a supply from outside already for fresh air. I doubled up the screen on the outside vent, and put a doubled up screen where it comes to the inside as well. I w

Its a slippery slope. I just like all my pretty blue lights My hearing is ruined so I just stay out of that conversation. I can still enjoy music , but I doubt it sounds as good to others as I think it does .

I hate it when that happens. Sounds like a great plan, Nick. I read through your other thread and others. Mini-splits are popular, but come on! Spending upwards of 1-2 thousand for a single rooms HVAC? Better planning could have saved those blo
