Weee I've been quite busy as of late. Most importantly with buying a nice fixer upper in Atl. I've got a nice great room that will be used as a theater. I don't have all the specifics yet, but want to start a thread so that you guys being more knowledgable than me can chime in if I'm making a poor 'sounding' decision.\r\n\r\nThis room is open to the dining and kitchen, totaling 600-700 sqft and has a 20 ft peak gable ceiling. Room correction will need to tailored, and to keep it cheap, I'll be crawling around with a meter. \r\n\r\nSince no one has taken interest in my RBH WM-30's, I'll be keeping them. First upgrade to make will be subwoofers. I like the idea of building my own, but with all the other projects I have going on the house, I think DIY will have to wait til I build some floor standing speakers.\r\n\r\nHere's a few questions for you guys, while this project is in its conception stages.\r\n\r\n1) I am flying out next week to install hardwood flooring. I have already stripped the carpeting completely and screwed down the sub floor. Are there any other modifications I should make to aid the future subwoofer installation so that the house does not add its own sound track?\r\n\r\n2) With such massive open space, should I assume ported subs are not optional?\r\n\r\n3) I will start with 2 subs. I will use the 'crawling for bass' technique. Is it best to place subs one at a time so that each can best serve its purpose?\r\n\r\n4) I have the cash to test all the ID return policies. For those of you with large spaces and SVS, Hsu, or Rhythmik subs, what do you recommend? I'd like to keep total sub cost for the pair at $2k. I can flex if its deemed a prudent investment, but I want two subs not one PB-13 Ultra. Although.... I do need to replace the windows anyway so I won't mind if they shatter :-)\r\n\r\nI can't describe my excitement for this project. Many years have I been reading this site dreaming of my own theater. My stereo has consistently improved with each upgrade since I was 15 with my Dads old stereo receiver and a pair Technics speakers. I'll know I've done it right when I can invite him over to watch The Who Blu Ray disc and his jaw hits the floor.\r\n\r\nThank you!
