Actually, I'm looking for a 7800 right now.
Awesome ManCave, got me drooling!
Looks great guys!
That's quite a movie collection!
damn, some of you guys have crazier server setups than a lot of medium sized businesses. what the hell do you do with all that? why does one need 24 individual ethernet cords? that said im totally jelly of all that gear, even if i have no idea what it does. my crappy samsung home theater in a box, while not providing very good sound quality provides plenty of volume, i can easily turn it up to extremely uncomfortable levels. i cant imagine how one would utilize 8 subs in a single room without damaging the foundation of their house.
Because some people like to have every room in the house with ethernet, and an outlet or two on EACH wall of EACH room, cause you never know when the wifey wants to move things around and you are ready for any and all changes
first house will be finished in march! basement has been left unfinished on purpose just for me

I think the sales person tricked you when he said they could do 14kW, the power lead has a rating of 3.5kW according to the official pdf (which still is a hell of a lot of power btw):
Unprecedented power density The FP 14000 delivers a total
of 14000 W (2 x 7000 W @ 2 ohms) in only 2U.
You can't have more power coming out than you have coming in (if you did you just became the richest person on this planet).
I see he has the Sega Nomad as well. I had to replace the screen on mine a few years ago but its still going strong.
Not continuously, no, but speakers are dynamic. They do not draw a continuous load by nature, and this is especially true for subs as they tend to show their full might for relatively short periods of time.
The input current takes care of what it can, and capacitors take care of the rest.
A good deal of the engineering in amplifiers at this level goes into how quickly the amp can charge and discharge its capacitors.
and the thd on that amp @ 1400w would be hilariousness.. more distortion than anything.
Curious what all your networking stuff goes to?
Christ, I know all about big inefficient toroids. They definitely have their places though. I'm running a Denon 5308 for my mains and surrounds which has a monster toroid and I love it. Before those LG amps, I was running 4 Marathon MA-5050s. My god they were heavy. They were making the racks I built bend. I'm also with you on highly sensitive speakers, my mains are around 104db and my surrounds around 99db.
These were 3U units, weighed in around 80lbs a piece.
As for the PS on the FP14000s, this is what they look like. LG did a lot of work on regulated switching mode power supplies. Super efficient.
These are my amps,
Class A 15-20watt on a 13-19V rails. Yes that's my name on them
My setup for the 2 speakers
Playing with Cap Values for the Ribbon Tweeter..
I'm ordering new 2U chassis x 2 for my amp chassis, as i'm re-designing them.
I'm running 4 aleph Mini's 2 per speaker for bi-amping WAY OVER KILL for power but i love the sound of the mini's.
I just finished my test pre-amp a B1 ( nelson Pass design again ) However in my last 10 years i've been stuck with my 100$ passive pot instead of a buffer pre-amp or a line-pre-amp.
Subscribed for ideas. Mine will be a manloft. I'll get the most privacy upstairs.
Moar man caves pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Ugh, it's Sheena
My man cave.
7.1 Surround sound, daul subs, 37" LG TV as my PC screen. 2x Pioneer CDJ1000s/DJM700

mooooooooarrr man caveeeeeeeeeeeeee
mmmmmmm mixing gear.

A couple of updated pictures...
damn nice stuff guys! especially dregan, you got no wife or kids im guessing? seems like some nice stuff for a walmart mintenance man unless youre knokcing over banks on the side or something... sadly im only planning on staying in hawaii for another 3 or 4 years, so i dont want to build up a badass man cave and then only get a year or 2 to enjoy it. im looking forward to buying my own permanent place in 5-10 years and setting up something like this too!
Long time lurker, finally get to post here
My room/man cave:
in the middle of the night I'd break my fucking leg if I had a barbell next to the side of my bed lol
Haha, haven't faceplanted yet
It's setups like these that make me regret / wish that I didn't live in an attached townhouse vs a detached home ;(
Here's the latest!
Probably not the compliment you migh be looking for (or even the manliest comment for the man cave thread), but where did you get that throw pillow?
