Added the Rythmik F18 to my living room HT last night. I didn't get to use the miniDSP yet, and the L12 on the left hand side of the console isn't even hooked up, but I got it physically in place. It really wasn't as troublesome as I expected for a 130lb subwoofer. Boxes slide easily and with the hand truck I had no problems getting around the back of the house (use a ratchet strap!)

Final placement of the L12s is TBD, but I'll try them like this and see what happens.


Turns out 18" is HUGE. Even with the mockups it always feels bigger when you have it there for real. I'm pretty sure the dog will want her bed moved now, too.



WAF was a huge concern but I found a hack. Use the outer box to make a play house for the kids and everyone is happy!

Oddly, the pic of the sub does not seem to make it look nearly as big as it is! The box with the toddler does more justice to the scale of that sub.

Now I'm feeling inadequate with my measly F15HP :eek:

My daughter will be 2 at the end of April, and is pretty much average size for her age. So yeah, it's pretty big. Today we colored the box for extra fun

Kudos to Rythmik for excellent packaging. The foam, instructions, it was all very well done.

Nott sure yet on the first thing, but TV is LG CX. Really happy with it, but I wouldn't buy one full price for sure.

Dam!! You're making me feel lazy for not having it setup yet. :eek: Before drilling holes in my stipple ceiling, I want to make sure that the location that I have for the main system remains. I'm thinking about relocating the subwoofer beside the left speaker and shifting everything down by 20 or so inches and try that out for a while. If that works and I like it, I will then know where to put the holes in my stippled ceiling to hang the speakers. :)

My concern with this 20" move is that will move the right speaker which is located 4 feet from the side wall to 28" from the side wall. I wonder if that's too close.

I can't be mad at ya. It took me over a year to put up mine. Mostly was waiting to get a 4K TV.

I picked mine up directly from the Rythmik site, directly from Brian :cool:

Rythmik is local for me, their shop is maybe 10 miles from my job. That was a large part of my decision to go Rythmik vs. the competition.

Because the Microline stylus shape engages nearly the entire shape of the groove cut. Consider an inexpensive bonded conical stylus rides high in the groove, so that stylus rides right over dirt in the bottom of it. An elliptical stylus contacts perhaps the upper 2/3rds of the groove, the radius on the contact edge big enough to smooth things out while still giving excellent detail. A microline stylus has a smaller edge radius, and smaller tip radius (pointier?) so it reacts to almost every defect and piece of debris.

Brilliant move with the cardboard box! But, were the dual L12 subs lacking for ya? Why did you decide to add this monster?

Paradigm Persona 3F Carbon Black

Finally arrived.....

Signs I am getting old
1) Took me a while for me to move them from my garage to inside the house
2) I noticed it had cut out handles after I struggled lifting the boxes into the house
3) To tired to open up the boxes tonight, will do it tomorrow. Young me would have had them set up by now
4) Center Channel Persona C is coming tomorrow!

If they ever make lightweight speakers that sound great, these suckers are getting sold! ;)
