    Do I Really Need a Sub?

    How high does human hearing even go? According to wikipedia: " The commonly stated range of human hearing is 20 to 20,000 Hz. Under ideal laboratory conditions, humans can hear sound as low as 12 Hz and as high as 28 kHz, though the threshold increases sharply at 15 kHz in adults, corresponding...

    Do I Really Need a Sub?

    Do many guys here have "butt shakers" in their home theaters? Wondering what opinions are on them. Are they worth the extra $?

    ML Quest

    Original panels and never replaced or reconditioned? My 20 year old Prodigy panels are waiting to be reconditioned now. They lost a lot of volume and the high frequencies seemed diminished.

    Does anyone use ceiling speakers for Dolby Atmos?

    Yeah, i was trying to keep cost down. I really think since the atmos speakers arent called on as much as the other channels that you can get away with not having bigger woofers. I could be wrong, but do those channels get called on to do much bass? I think the crossover from the receiver/pre amp...

    ML CLS

    Reminds me of when I was a kid and opened up my polaroid camera. I started poking around inside and got the crap zapped out of me! I told my dad later and he said it was probably the capacitor in there. Wow, was that strong! I thought I was safe because I had the batteries out of it. Getting...

    ESL15A Break in

    My Prodigies are probably about 4 feet out now. The part Im unsure of is putting up the sound deadening material on the walls behind. To me that is taking away from the reflection of those sound waves and so you will never hear that anyways. Wouldnt that be a bad thing? So I just have bare walls...

    ESL15A Break in

    It seems though that so many on here recommend putting up sound absorption materials on the wall behind the speakers. I personally don't have any, but most on here do. So what is the optimal placement for the speakers, hypothetically?

    Laser Printers....Thoughts ??

    Some manufacturers let you order direct from them. I just ordered a Samsung HEPA air cleaner and saved $150 and got free shipping.

    Center channel for monolith 3.

    How would someone go about running three of those off of the one channel? Do those speakers have an audio out balanced outlet so that you can chain them together?

    He has some suggestions for shipping. I ended up driving to his home and delivered mine personally so I didn't have to worry about shipping. I'm going to have him mail them back to me. He seems to know real well how to ship.

    My prodigies had low output and vacuuming didn't help any. I gave my panels to someone to recondition. He is going to take them apart, clean the old coating off them and apply his own new coating.

    Showtime Anytime not streaming in 5.1

    Anyone with an Apple TV 4k device have anything to report on how it streams audio? Im still wondering if it gets dolby 5.1 correctly on Showtime and other channels like AMC. Seems like on the Amazon Fire Stick 4k that it comes in in stereo (2 channels) and my receiver ends up expanding it into...
