  1. Good stuff, it looks like a giant bread knife! I had a blunt hand saw that I hit with the bench grinder for fun one day which turned out to be stupidly sharp. I rounded the teeth then just put as fine an edge as possible on it. Used it for hacking the palm trees and pumpkins we get every year. I keep the machete under the bed though!
  2. You got a storming bargain there mate! I would have bought the lens if I didn't already have the CM-5E!
  3. Depending on your circular saw size (185mm etc) you could buy cutting discs for grinders or a cheap tile saw blade. Buy a shim ring kit also as the centre fitting will probably be a different size. Even if it is unbalanced they generally do not detonate themselves unless you hit a hard surface to quick but even then they have a mesh fibre in the discs so it's not overly dangerous.
  4. Will you ship items at [email protected]? Interested in the PSA speakers if you have original cartons for them? Someone buy that A-Lens also ffs!!!
  5. If you can I'd move your existing subs to nearfield first. Preferably directly behind (within 1mt) you but if not then either side of your seating position. I'm not sure if your subs are ported or sealed but nearfield imo is where it's at as they don't need to work half as hard for impact and the room is almost taken out of the equation. Corner loading is nice but I feel it bloats the sound (I've never measured it though) which is why I used 4 subs with 2 front and 2 rear. These were all sealed 12's with passive radiators. I've got my 4 18's now (2 more arriving soon) but they are still in the box until I build my HT again! Suppose I should pull my finger out...
  6. You need to seal a room to pressurise it. Your room is massive with a kitchen also so I doubt it's possible unless you buy bulk 18 inch subs.
  7. I'd be putting the dimensions in a room mode calculator and also measuring the room with mic and REW etc then go from there. It could be as simple as seating position....he definitely has gotten used to the amplified low frequency from the concrete bunker!
  8. This is worth it for the tweeter alone seeing as Aaron have closed up shop! I use a pair as surround backs but are from the 90's not like this latest version! GLWTS....
  9. Does this play H.265 10bit in 4k? Can anyone confirm?
  10. Bargain! I can hear Mark's heart breaking from here.....
  11. Close up pictures of actual drivers would help also. I know they look premium but anyone can finger a diaphragm! Lol
  12. Here you go Mate - https://www.minidsp.com/applications/acoustic-measurements/umik-1-setup-with-rew Read it as it's really not that hard to set up and run sweeps....refer to the AVS lik on the 6kDSP in regards to importing or copying filters As for clip lights I wouldn't worry with the behringer as long as they aren't solid lit on every scene. You are using subwoofers after all and not mid or tweeters. I'll find the link later with Behringers TRUE power rating. Cheers, Brett
  13. Oldie but a goodie here - http://www.subwoofer-builder.com/integration/index.htm Pretty sure the page owner may be a member or in the past? That website is where I got a heap of the ideas and the gain matching (bump box) fix etc..... Bump box info I was talking about - http://www.subwoofer-builder.com/cleanbox/cleanbox.htm
  14. Just a quick response for you Troy as I haven't read any updates since a month ago and just skimmed it then. I'm surprised you don't have a multimeter even a two buck chuck would do for your wiring (ohms) and checking connections.... Anyway..... below is a link for your amp (6kdsp) mate to the AVS forum and majority of info you'd need with its setup and the handy 20hz highshelf glitch for a flat amp response! Also in my experience over the 10yrs+ dealing with pro amps in consumer grade setups (AVR amp to pro audio amp connection) that the line levels are different and unless the pro amp has a switch for +4 dbu to -10 dbv (hopefully yours does being dsp) then I'd recommend a bump box inline and specifically the Samson S-Convert unless you mod an Art Cleanbox. http://www.avsforum.com/forum/155-diy-speakers-subs/2911854-nu6000dsp-amp-rundown.html
  15. I doubt it. Even with every channel running speakers flat chat you'd be nowhere near its rated output in amps. Hook up five subs and give them all a 10hz sine wave flat out then you will....
