Thanks for the read John. Interesting stuff. 2x6 I'm not sure if you are into the research\reading side of the hobby, but this book may interest you. It is mainly gear quality focused, but delves a little into setup and acoustics. I think it woul

"Stubborn refusal to face the facts," that's insulting, isn't it? You are an objectivist. That's fine, and of course, it is not insult. Insulting people with contrary views is what the holy warriors of that orthodoxy do here, you foremost a

OK, Craigsub ... come down to Southern California, bring your troop of evaluators, we will all close our eyes and listen to music, then we can argue over steaks and beers and listen to more music.

The problem I had when I participated in a blind test (at Axiom a few years back) was conveying the differences in what I was hearing into words. I could definitely hear (subtle) differences between the two speakers (both were very good) but didn't k

It's all in good fun... It didn't work. At +10 on the receiver and with the power turned all the way down on the subs the bass is roughly equivalent to 2 towers. I turned the subs off after and listened while I grinded away. I still have lots to do.

I am planning an slight overhaul in my theater. Mainly to get my front main speakers a little bit wider (which means tearing down the false wall and moving it about a foot further into the room), and then the moving of my side surround a bit more f

Not that you need a primer, Nick, but here is a good vid for those interested directly comparing and explaining different diffusers vs absorbers. Headphones work best when viewing the vid for comparison. Hope it's helpful. https://m.youtube.com/wa

Whoa! The thread awakens. Thought my spring rear wall diffuser update would be it. The sidewall polys were installed prior to the sidewall absorbers. The absorbers made a much more impactful benefit to listening. That said, I am happy I went wit

I might have missed it somewhere, but have you noticed much improvement after adding the poly diffusers? I know that you added them on 08/30/2015 and there were other treatments, but I am not sure if there was ever a "yeah, I think that they we
