Have you tried sanding the 2x4s smooth?

davekro,

I just have read the last 2 pages...

Have you tried not using audyssey equilization \:\) . More specifically resetting the processor on your AVR and manually re-entering just the calibration numbers audyssey provided previously (speaker/subs, distances etc). Then set all the speakers to small with crossovers set at 80 and go from there.

Zimm, how are your meds holding up today over on the 'wired' thread? ;\)


Yes, the wire thread was a fun introduction to the group. I asked about mounting the Qs with banana plugs and got slow roasted over an open fire about all the hype in the audio industry. But, I have learned a good deal from the hosts of the roast since then - most of which will save me a great deal of money down the road. I still can't buy that a $300 AVR with 10% distortion at 11 watts sounds as good as the Axiom 500 clean-watt-per-every-imaginable-channel amp, but the K-twins are slowing beating the grasshopper into submission. Soon I'll have a 1985 Techniques AVR with 4 watts a channel hooked up to my speakers with coat hanger wire. Then I will be the master!

Mark,
It's not up to 'Got Wood' standards, as Home Depot did not have maple 2x4's. I know, how boring. I used low class pine 2x4's. I have sanded them down now and stained the to perfectly match the maple cabinets. I apologize for offending everone's eyes and tastes by showing photos of my temporary stands in such horrid looking condition. I'll work harder to not fall below forum standards (yet again)... \:\(
.

ROTHLMOA +1 That's a great one. I can see you have upped yours, and for all the world to see, no less. ;\)

Reminds me of a Halloween costume party I went to in Chico, CA when my little 'sis was attending CSU. It was in the early 80's when toxic shock syndrome was all over the news. One guy was dressed as a Rely tampon. On his costume it read: "We may not be #1, but we're 'up there'." \:D
