This thread is for MAN CAVES. Projects, finished or still working on. Post what you got!
That is officially awesome. Two problems -- no real Bourbon in the bar, and mixed messaging Vikings/49ers. Other than that, envy.
Hey Deadlift, what size are those monitors? I have been thinking about putting together a configuration like that now that I have a video card that can handle it (6950 2GB).
showed the wife your setup
[8:44:42 AM] Wife: I like the layout of the monitors
[8:45:09 AM] Wife: what have u done to me!
[8:45:17 AM] Wife: I'm looking at monitirs!
Guinness (edit: tub) in that man cave is instant +1000 points of internets.
God, I need to go get a 6 pack tonight to continue my BF3 session. I love these pictures, haha. Even if it's a bit too much football for me.
This is great. She is making the conversion to full fledged computer enthusiast. Next you'll find her reading reviews of gpu's and how to set up a watercooling loop. Well done man!
haha, well she did pick out the case for my build cause it looks like a space ship! (choosen over various slick Lian Li cases.
She did then comment that just because she liked the layout doesnt mean i have to go buy it, but then followed by
"Wife: One day you will have your 30' Monitor"
It's time to break out the Jedi mind trick
Wife: "You need to explain to me why you need this 30" monitor"
You: "I don't need to explain why I need this monitor"
You: "Go ahead and purchase this monitor. In fact get 3"
Wife: "Go ahead and purchase this monitor. In fact get 3"
Sweet case btw.
Shapman43 what is that mount? It looks like you can slid the monitors. I have been look for something like that for 3 27" monitors.
Guys go check out this website. Seriously, he even has pics of the construction of the speakers and his screen as well as others.
You guys make me wish I had the money and skills to put one together, more money than the skills though.
dude aren't you deaf already with all those speaker over there, of my god
Flat to 8Hz? That is f'ing sick. I'm surprised you didn't place the subs in all four corners/walls for best seat-to-seat response ... but that doesn't seem possible in your room and I doubt it concerns you I would also think it odd that you're not using any outboard speaker amps, but those JBLs have ungodly efficiency numbers ... 104dB? That's 100x more power efficient than what I use, and 4x as loud for a given wattage. An iPod could nearly power those speakers.
I'll try to post some pics of my HT-in-progress up shortly. It is definitely more WAF-conscious and not as pure performance, and certainly not as much [H]ard craftsmanship, but we sure enjoy it. (I could satisfy my e-peen by pointing out that my screen is larger, but I'd never ... oh wait ... )
nyt has this won so far, hands down
though I'm very impressed with deadlift's build/repair station. I think I shall have to include that in my mancave once we get our house next year
I didn't use per channel amplification simply to avoid adding any extra electronics to the mix. The Denon 5308 is already a beast, and they will go loud enough to hurt you with no effort. I believe the auto calibration brings them down to like -11 or so..
The graph showing flat to 8hz also doesn't show that I'm using a 48db/octave butterworth filter at 11hz to get room gain there under control and protect subwoofer excursion at super low levels. I picked a point where the affect of ultra low frequency bass kind of wears off and filtered there. At around 7hz, even above 120db, there just doesn't seem to be a point in wasting the power for an affect that is so minimal it won't ever bet noticed with everything else going on. This is before and after eq.
And for fun, a video of excursion. It gets amusing around 40 seconds in.
