1. My jumpers are on because I couldn't really tell any difference whether they're passive bi-amped or with the jumpers in place. It did start making a popping sound when I powered it up in bi-amp configuration so I put it back.
2. I bought new speakers so I posted pics of them and added on when I took some glamor shots for an article.
3. Yup... kinda old, but not dead! lol.

I don't mind tho. Happy to answer any more questions if you have them.
So no noticeable benefit of Bi-Amping speakers that's good to know.. Hearing this more and more from more people. Great system and thanks for sharing

You talkin about you or the thread? :eek:

How's all your inspection stuff going?
Har har! (That was actually a good one, I lol'd).

We're just getting started and jobs are starting to trickle in. We have a few jobs under our belt now and 1 or 2 five star ratings. It's a little slow right now, but we just launched not long ago.

I told my partner to just stay the course. Hes unfamiliar with managing a business, but that's where I come in. I have almost 30 years of management experience and know more or less what to expect and how to deal with clients. He's impatient and worried. I'm not. Word of mouth and 5 star ratings will start to work its magic and we'll pick up. The first year is always the toughest for a new business.

We're just getting started and jobs are starting to trickle in. We have a few jobs under our belt now and four 5 star ratings. It's a little slow right now, but we just launched not long ago.

Sounds like you guys are off to a good start. Nice job!

First year is tough, can't be impatient with that. I'm still considering starting something of my own, but time will tell.

Was'sup brotha Bill!
Sup homes! Just hit your link. I dig it. Nice to see you guys off the ground. I agree too. Stay the course. My wife and I have been self employed for 20ish years. The highs are higher, and the lows are lower, but there now greater reward. ‘specially when you consider working for someone else’s bottom line.
Nice job J. Keep it up.

You hit the nail on the head there...I've been a biz owner, a co biz owner and experienced both the highs and the lows...the biggest reward was I had the flexibility to be around when my kids were young....now, just a part-time venture because I like my gig.

Good pay allows me to afford this crazy hobby we have, nice perks like zero health insurance cost, no one really bothers me. I hope to ride this out another 5 yrs...get the mortgage paid off and then I may go back into biz for myself.

Thing only thing that sucks about this job is getting to and from...19 miles takes 45 mins on a normal day...but not complaining...really :).

Good work man! Love it!

Love the dual sub look. Also the big amp. :) What material is the center bookshelf sitting on?

Hey man, thanks!

That was just a piece wood to elevate it a little higher. A piece of a pedestal I had. It's not there any more and the speaker just sets on the stand now. It was more for aesthetics than anything.

So I’ll try to dig up your old posts. Sounds like 3 bookshelves didn’t do it for theater even with dual subs? I’m at a similiar point in my journey for the critical front 3. 3 books or go towers... I’ve got the Rythmik LVX12 ported 12 and output is significant in my 2600 cu ft sealed theater room. I’m not really seeing the point of a 2nd sub.

I won't speak for Pogre but I kinda remember some found money and thus the Towers were born but I could be wrong. I've heard a hi end 5.4 setup with all B&W 805s all the way around...awesome!

I'm not sure how the Ultra BS stack up vs the 805s, but I kinda doubt that they were not fulfilling.

Two subs...I think there's might be some mis-conception on the dual subs. If you can place one well and don't have localization issues or that simply doesn't bother you...agreed, there is no point for a 2nd sub if you feel what you have gives you what you're seeking on the low end.
