    Well guys, it's been a while! I have some catching up to do. For those that don't see me posting on the FB pages, here's a little update: Sony X900E 65". LOVE this tv. Sony X800 4K BR player to go with it. Nice player, not having the issues so many others have. My subs from my IB are in 6.6 cu ft cabs tuned to 20 Hz. I had fun with my brother building these. As you can see I still have all my Adire kit speakers. Still cranking the crap out of them. lol Pre/pro is Emotiva UMC-1. No 4K, but not sure if I want to upgrade it. From my X800 I run my HDMI straight to the TV for video, and the second HDMI to the pre/pro for the surrounds. Amps....well Emotiva UPA-5 for all the Adires. Great amp. The subs now each have their own Adcom GFA-555. 850 RMS!! Man did they come alive once I did that. I have 3 555s, but one isn't hooked up. I really should buy a miniDSP so I can dial them in, but they sure do shake the house now. Lots more to say and add, but my daughter and I are about to crank up American Idol. I love these shows.

    This top pic is my current setup. 29100985_10215599359197007_813687983793242112_o.jpg 28378117_10215453953201948_9097385163504563352_n.jpg 10561691_10205046134732991_1656103466757056386_n.jpg . :)

    Dude, the sub enclosure is so awesome. Nice work! I would definitely spring for the Mini DSP. Heard nothing but good things.

    Welcome back pilgrim. I believe I bought a dalite projection screen from you back in the day but was used for outdoor films to great success. A simple 1080p panny pj.

    I love the "explosive" sub enclosure.

    I had to do something different. There is a story behind that. When I was 19 I was in an explosion at work. After I recovered my parents happened to be at an estate sale and found TNT boxes. So they thought they would be funny and got me two. I still have them. :D They look like these. Note about the design, the weight I used is the weight of the 15". The town is where I grew up.
