    Some of the wire is 3/4 inch thick

    I'm playing the center and surrounds right now, sounding good

    I modified the center with Mr 50 resistors, clarity cap mr and cmr, will be Curtis to see how it performs

    Temp setup (hopefully obvious) but all in all I am impressed with the initial results. Cant dial in much with everything on the floor and restricted menu without a screen

    All I can say is thank you to everyone who planted the infinite baffle subwoofer bug....

    Surpassed every expectation, never experienced a sub like it and I've heard some of the best...

    That's what I've heard about IB. From my SQ car audio days, some of the more accurate sub bass systems I've heard were IB. I met the late Tom Nousaine years ago but never got to listen to his massive IB system. The system used eight 15" TC Sounds drivers in the basement, it may have been expanded at some point I think? For years I said I was going to try to set up a demo of his system. I passes his town everyday on my way to and from work, damn!

    I've though about doing one in the basement myself...but too chicken to cut into the floor.

    Enjoy that build! but, stop watching movies and get back to work before procrastination sets in. LOL!

    Looking good man!

    Thank you sir

    The IB set up is worth it, cut pots of holes in the floor and make it work! It's amazing

    I cut in my floor boxes for the speaker wire runs.. The boxes also hold an outlet in their own box... Did this in the event I ever want to run powered towers for fun or whatever8n2nk0cbv0aw.jpg

    So much better than the first time we rebuilt that living room.
  • VR3VR3 Posts: 22,775
    Thank you kind sir

    And yes, getting rid of that chimney and doing the pop out... Worth it

    We ran 14 outlets in the cubby plus one at each main... So we are juiced up with 60 amps of Russ current

    I like the look. Random accident the guides match the Utopias.. Hahai do have ventilation in the rack, two fans mounted over amp and receiver venting upwards...

    The black box you can see below the TV is an exhaust fan pushing air out into the room

    Hard to tell but the whole house is falling down right now.

    One thing is for sure, I reconfigured the rack where all of the gear is back facing back And using .5 meter interconnects and being able to route cables where no power touches low voltage... Pretty awesome

    Different pair of Utopias in this pic

    Granite platforms really brought the tweeter height to a good point
