Issue#809: Move speakers closer to screen (closer to wall) or leave as is...what is best?

  • Hello!
    My front speakers are at around 8 feet away from my seating. So are the back surrounds while the sides are at 6' away. I have been thinking on pushing the mains closer to the screen then adding "wides" to anchor the sound more to the big screen. But that will put the left speaker much closer to the wall and the center much lower to the ground so not sure if that will make the sound worst even with Audyssey.
    What you guys think?

ST PHOTO: NEO XIAOBIN SINGAPORE - The amount of space devoted to patient care at the Outram campus will triple over the next 20 years according to the masterplan unveiled by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Friday (Feb 5). Also, the entire Singapore General Hospital (SGH) will be re-located to be nearer the two MRT stations along Outram Road and Eu Tong Sen Street, to make it more convenient for patients and their visitors. Speaking at the launch of the masterplan, Mr Lee called it a "musical chairs exercise" - keeping the hospital running while moving buildings and roads around.

  • Issue#422719: W600 Issue with a 4 Screen Video Wall

    Hi, I am currently working in a school and they have 4 of the 42UB820V TV's (4K supports 60Hz)  on a video wall with the top  2 screens upside down ( so bottom 2 are on wall at the correct way up and the top 2 are upside down due to the bezzel. The issues they have is that now the top 2 screens are upside down so are the images ( there is a different image on each of the 4 screens) I have installed the new drivers etc and AMD have confirmed the drivers  should enable me to rotate the screen 180 degrees but it just won't work. Any suggestions? I am assuming that as its a consumer TV and not a display screen and thats why I can't flip the image? Any ideas?

  • Issue#571843: In wall speakers for AT screen

    I have a pair of Ci5160RL-THX speakers but Im hearing they might not be the best for being behind a AT screen because they are aluminuim and could reflect back through the screen and ruin the image. I want Atmos 7.2.4 Budget is up to $8,000 for the LCR and two in wall surround speakers and rear surround. I guess they need to be black. Open to speakers that cost less and more. My only expierence is with KEF and I love the Q900, LS50 sound. The screen is going to be 2.35:1 135". Hopefully these will be the last set of speakers I buy lol. I have a Rotel 1585 5ch 200wpc power amp and Yamaha AX3050 atmos AVR. Was looking at Krix and Martin Logan. But Ivreally dont have a clue. Cheers lads. I will ad a link to my theatre build thread in a sec

  • Issue#608943: Speakers not playing as loudly after move (possible receiver issue)

    Hey everyone, I just moved my speakers from one house to another. Actually, not just my speakers. I moved my TV, entertainment stand, receiver, speaker, and all the wires. They were in boxes for a few weeks and I set them up in this new apartment. However, as you may have guessed from the title, I'm noticing a severe difference in volume. All of the wiring is the same, and speakers are as well. I've already increased the levels on the speakers to their max, and this particular receiver has a setting to raise the volume of a specific input. In this case, all of my stuff goes to the 'Video 1' input on the receiver, so I raised the volume on just that input. And I also turned off the 'Audio Compression' on my cable box, which is where most of my video and audio comes from. I have a blu-ray player and cable box, both of which are going to my Samsung TV via HDMI, and then audio is connected to the receiver with an optical cable down from the television. There is no option for HDMI on the r

  • Issue#650591: Fake wall, AT screen, LCR/ceiling/wall speakers - help needed

    Hi AVS, I've recently bought a house and decided to do something more with my living room theater this time around. To keep it easily understandable, I'll sum up using bullet points. Projector only - No TV. The walls are going to be white, as is the ceiling. I can't do anything about this. Fake wall and hiding electronics. My living room isn't the biggest when I also have to fit in a small dining room table. Therefore I really want to hide as much electronics as possible. I'm contemplating building a 15 cm deep fake wall, where I'll mount a acoustically transparent fixed projector screen. Behind it, I'll need some slim LCR speakers. Receiver/HTPC and so forth, will be housed in an adjacent room, so that it doesn't take up space in the living room. Reusable equiment: I've got a BenQ W1070 projector alongside a Onkyo TX-SR608 receiver. I've already got a HTPC/server providing content. I'm reselling my old Scandyna The Drop speakers in order to partly fund this. Now, I've read a

  • Issue#915525: Giffgaff - Benefits prepaid cards move a step closer

    The DWP have published the results of a new study which supports the introduction of prepaid cards for vulnerable benefits claimants. The DWP carried out a pilot using prepaid cards in Kent. The experiment has been assessed by the Centre for Social and Economic Research at Sheffield Hallam University.The prepaid cards can be used to withdraw cash and to make payments, set up direct debits and buy items online. Statements and balances can also be checked online. In the pilot there were no restrictions on what could be purchased using the cards.The study found that the cards were particularly useful for “people in debt whose benefits were otherwise being swallowed up by overdrafts or credit debt payments in their current bank account.”The cards also provided “greater financial safety for a few participants who had been exploited by previous or current partners or peers in the past.”For some claimants, the cards allowed them to buy cheaper products and services online an

  • Issue#1126453: Big screen and speakers behind or small screen and speakers on wall

    I am in a big dilemma on whether to select bigger screen and put speakers behind or go smaller screen and put bookshelf speakers on the side. Every day I visit my unfinished basement and stare at walls. Should I pick this wall, that wall or that wall. Each wall, that I can fit my screen is roughly 9 ft wide. A post divides the basement roughly half, width wise (10ft/9ft). This pic will give you an idea. The height right now is roughly 7.5 ft (unfinished) The screen is 100" and the speakers are on stands. On the left you see fuse box. The black pipe behind is actually drain pipe from abov, which protrudes roughly 1 feet out from the bottom going into the floor. What I have drawn here, is this a good idea?. Do you have any better idea? Do you think I am better hanging the speakers on the wall/ stand? or go smaller screen (92") and have speakers on the side of the screen? After reading numerous posts on AVS and recommendations, I do want to go as big screen as possible (I m

  • Issue#3831: Radio Control - One step closer to fusion power

    One step closer to fusion power (2 min 4 sec) Quote: Scientists claim to have made yet another step towards the ultimate goal of achieving nuclear fusion, by partially solving an outstanding problem in the field: heat loss. The research was led by scientists at MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center, in collaboration with the University of California at San Diego, General Atomics, and the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. To make nuclear fusion work, atoms of deuterium need to be “stuck together” to form helium in a super-heated plasma at around 100 million degrees Celsius. Keeping the temperature this high is difficult, though, because turbulence stirs up the plasma, causing heat to dissipate – hence, heat loss. Clyde

  • Issue#5198: Help with AT screen wall build

    I'm trying to figure out what I need to do next and was hoping for a little guidance. What I have is a studded wall separating a utility room and the main theater area with drywall on one side (open in the back/utility room side). I plan on putting three Def Tech UIW speakers in the wall but I'm not sure what I should do as far as the rest of the wall behind the AT screen. Do I need to just paint the wall a flat black, or install some sort of GOM fabric? I was originally thinking all I was going to do was cut holes for the in wall speakers, paint it flat black, and install the AT screen but after reading thru tons of threads on here Imm not sure if I need to do something else. This is not going to be a dedicated theater, more of a media room but I would like to do it correctly. Thanks in advance.

  • Issue#6805: Samsung Display: Backlight issue: dark semicircle appears on right side of screen

    So this is a second hand Samsung SyncMaster S23B300 (23") HD DVI monitor but worked fine when I first got it, daily use, no issues till recently so hopefully the previous owner didn't know about it. The issue is, when I turn the monitor on after it being off, a dark semicircular shadow radiates from the right side. If I press on the plastic frame, things return to normal, and after a bit of fiddling I can get it stable and make the screen appear normal again. However, this is becoming more frequent and more difficult to remedy each time it happens. It seems like a small issue and I am used to fixing things myself, I can solder etc, but I have no idea how these monitors work. I am under the impression that it could potentially be a capacitor, or even simply some bad connection. Should I just open it up and have a go? Any tips? Pic: Usually forget to take a pic when PC first starts up, so excuse the peek into my Youtube habits. I have noticed its

    I'm considering buying the Bowers & Wilkins MT-60D home theatre speakers, and would like to wall-mount the centre M-1 speaker in landscape orientation below the TV. As it would be sited above a gas fire I need some measurements in order to assess the practicality of such a setup. Firstly, I need the depth measurement from the wall surface to the front of the speaker, and secondly the overall height measurement from the lowest point to the highest, both with the speaker mounted horizontally as stated. Surprisingly, these measurements are not shown with other specifications on B & W's website. If anyone can help I'll be most grateful.
