Your VP150 on top of the M60 speakers is giving me all sorts of anxiety.


No worries. They had only been set there for about an hour and are now separated and covered bya couple of old bed sheets for a little protection...

Nick, that first picture cracked me up! Thanks! grin

The 3.0 setup was so lovely - it seems like you would have a hard time making 4.0 "better", but I know you will.

Congrats on your new home. I hope you and the family have many happy years there.

V4.0 will have a "regular" sized and shaped room. No more seats against the rear wall, odd shaped (really odd shaped) rooms, and I will have the approval, ahem, ability to do some sound proofing and acoustical treatments.

Awesome room! Is that a Theater of Magic pinball I see in the background? Good taste! I'm building a virtual pinball machine and that's one of the tables.

Half the fun of having one is the design/build part. I'm almost halfway done with my HT v2.0

Yeah, I am looking at using some of the sepmeyer's "3 golden room ratios" to come up with a good size to base things off of. Since I am limited to 8 foot tall ceilings, that means that I could have a 12' 9.6" x 18' 7.68" room which works out pretty well since I was looking at 13' 6" for a room width anyway, and the length is adjustable to some degree. Just have to figure out of I can get everything into that room size or if I need to go a little longer...

Hmmm... I don't think that they are one in the same. wink

Some quick reading on the ratios:
Sepmeyer's Ratios

And a better calculator for those that just don't like some easy math:
Sepmeyer Ratio Calculator
