  1. If you are prepared for DIY and have some time and patience I recommend you grab a calibrated mic and start learning REW. If not consult some of the specialist services to do it for you, some found in this forum. I DIY'd and enjoying the fruits of my labour. Suggest you start by making a detailed layout of your room and listening positions down to mm measurements. Identify as many sub1 and sub2 positions as you can, including all possible combinations. Now you can start to appreciate the effort required to test each configuration. May not do all but there are usually some obvious layout combos which makes some sense and is still practical. Of course you need to select a sub first but you need to consider any limitations due to sub size and position. With that in mind and to narrow some selections, what is your current room size and at what sound level do you currently play the DB1?
  2. Loaded question but what are you trying to achieve with the sub(s)? It's not necessary for matching subs but the answer will depend on your goal(s).
  3. Make a template on speaker top, setup a mini tripod on template, attach laser tool, tweak and measure, rotate laser tool to angle 1, measure again... etc. You get distance which I don't believe you get in the Kalsu?
  4. KEF units which you can audition from WCHifi. The KEF site has manual you can download and check wall mounting configuration but you'd need a retainer to orient on ceiling mount. Other suggestions would be more traditional 'rectangular' boxes which could be bookshelf speakers to HTIB satellite speakers to keep costs down.
  5. From your description I take it to mean you are looking to directly surface mount onto ceiling double layered Gyprock board? How much head room do you have and what are the proposed overhead speaker positions relative to your MLP?
  6. Maybe a description of your ceiling structure, elevation and distances to seating position may help. How are you considering on running the cabling?
  7. Welcome to the forum. Lots of experienced help. If you have a specific layout in mind post in the HT forum section. It sounds like you're going deep deep rabbit hole. I'm happy with my 7.2.4 setup for the size of my room. You must have a massive space to fill! Enjoy...
  8. I've run 2 x Cat5e/6 Ethernet cables from my AV rack to the projector location. What is currently the best option to run 4K HDMI? Has anyone had any experience with HDMI extenders using Ethernet and can recommend product? edit: seems not really finalised for 18Gbps on Dolby Vision but since no home projector is able to reach DV requirements I should look for 18Gbps rated HDMI over ethernet modules.
  9. From memory I ran a 150 w driver and it is plenty bright. However towards the end of the led run at about 14m the white mode led setting isn't as bright. So yes voltage drop makes a difference. If you want no issues buy a full led roll and split it into 6m lengths. Buy two drivers and connect that into a double adaptor power point with 2 controllers.. I'd keep to one run and one larger driver connected to your wifi controller but up to you.
  10. LED strips run off dc. The power brick is essentially a 230VAC to 14 or 12VDC transformer. The amps is what you need to allow for. in simple power terms Power = voltage x current. so if you have 14v x 8amp = 112 watts of power. The higher your amps the higher your power transformer. The led strip will normally give you a rating for power draw per lineal metre. Use this formula to work of what led spec and power brick you need. i ran one strip of 16m led powered off one transformer. The transformer has a built in transmitter and comes with a remote to turn on/off, change colour and mode (flashing, timing of flashing, colour cycling - like red and green for Xmas feel). You can prolly find ones which sync with wifi apps, google or amazon. Hope that helps
  11. 100% polyester so essentially the same stuff as some other polyester products like polymax. I suppose this product would be easier to hang and move. I’d assume it would work but hanging 4 lots just to have an effect seems comical so you’d might as well buy the HD stuff.
  12. Try this post and read the ones below.
  13. If you can stretch the budget (or save for later) add a second sub to the mix, a bigger unit. You are def in for a treat!
  14. Go the 150" and in AT Scope if you can. I've got a slightly longer room at 6.7m (2 tier seating) and the screen is just right. Trial the different sizes - you might find on 16x9 content you'd like bigger. Depending on what speakers/subs you are installing I suggest you go direct rather than dipole/bipole surrounds, and if you can find out the dispersion/radial pattern of the surrounds. The height position is just as crucial as the surround angles guided by Dolby. I'm interested to know how your projector/screen setup goes. I'm on the hunt for a new projector and looking at the 9400/N7/570 proposition. Let me know if you need help with other suggestions.
