  1. Woah nelly! I can't forget experiencing TWO of these in a van back when Nick had just released them. These drivers are HULK-like!
  2. This part. The amount of over-generalizations that continue in these discussions never fails to make me chuckle but I gotta tell ya there are so many variables that account to what we end up getting on disc and play back at home. Nobody (who creates/produces what we hear) has time to go through each and every release made with a fine tooth enthusiast-audiophile "is-this-gonna-sound-awesome-on-my-home-stereo" kind of mentality. The important part is that dialog is intelligible and there are no downmix artifacts/issues and tell a story. That is about it. Next movie on the production line.....next and next and next. There is money to be made, people. There is no need to sabotage legacy versions to sell the new hottness. People will buy the new hottness anyway and they are. Sometimes you just get crap because that is where the chips fell. Trust me, I think the reality of this sort of stuff is just as dumb as it sounds. I just enjoy what I get because even with the warts, it's still all awesome. My HT room has never sound better. What say you guys? Better time than ever to have an HT system.
  3. From what I have read, I thought it was that tapped horns will not benefit with additional extension when used in stacks. However, front-loaded horn bass systems will.
  4. I shoved all mine in a closet behind the MLP. 😛
  5. I meant like, "scram, kid". 😂
  6. I like how these are called the Skram. People don't say scram anymore. Some people should tell other people to scram more often. 🤣
  7. Yeah there was always a DSP version of the iNuke amps. This is a simple rebranding of the iNuke amps, like Behringer seems to do with their products every few years. Not dissimilar to the old Europower amps. The 1500 and 2500 "changed" to the 3000 and 4000. Same amps, new look/label. The iNuke amps are indeed a great value, imho. I own several and have quiet modded them with Noctua fans. I'm kinda annoyed cuz these look better in black than the silver iNukes I have already. 😛
  8. I want a bigger one. Excellent work as always, Josh. You should get paid for this stuff, ya know.
  9. Ah yes. That little machined lip kinda threw me off.
  10. Kinda looks like the upper part based off the pictures of the assembled driver. Not sure, really. Probably more machining to do.
  11. All outputs from immersive audio formats are full range. The playback system handles the bass management. It is up to the mixer(s) to decide how much bass content goes to which location. While rare, it is totally possible to have full range content output from any speaker position, including the overhead speaker positions.
  12. Just thought it was nice to see a nice brand make a return. We scoff at the performance to price ratio now but back in the day, they were the shit. My Tempest still sounds nice today. I guess I have a soft spot for Adire Audio. They got me into DIY audio. So.... yeah.
  13. Was feeling nostalgic and did a Google search on Adire Audio tonight.... They are back and have stock? Waht?! What day is it? What year? Did I wake up from a nap and now back in 2005? I know I've been out of the loop for a while but... Did you you guys know they were back? They have OG Shiva, Tempest, Brahma and even the Tumult on the site. Holy crap! Adireaudio.com Anyway. Just wanted to share you guys. Good ol' days, huh?
  14. Ahhha. Okay. Lol, don't act like I wasn't there. Mmm. Mhmm. Good luck, sir!
  15. Like a dual opposed sub? Lol...not sure if serious, David. ?
  16. There was a graph. Must have disappeared with the rest. I remember it graphed (and sounded/felt) well on my system. Thought the sound was pretty terrific actually. Nobody seems to like this movie though. I liked it well enough. Just wasn't the Prometheus sequel everyone wanted and expected.
  17. It's painfully obvious, especially after all this time and with a strong consensus in the community.... that there is not a technical limitation in play but rather a creative one. These start out as crummy mixes outright and they stay that way all the way to home video. So at least they are consistent.... consistently average at best.

    Awww dang! Had this high on a hopeful "wishlist" of sorts. Not that I have any direct experience with this driver, it seemed to me like an excellent driver all around. I would wonder what kind of update BMS would have for it.
  19. There was .... ...until the original poster of them decided to redact all previous posts with them. idk why
  20. Holy cow! That looks like quite the heavy hitter, post BEQ. Very nice.
  21. "Long term power effects" and... you were watching a movie? For real, dude? Can't have ya worrying about a thing like that. Sounds like a new set of surrounds is in your near future.
  22. Lol yeah. All us crotchety geezers still postin. ? Hey, James! *waves* Nice to see you around too! I can't get this glorious blaring music loud enough in 2049, man. ? Not even close. ? A visit with the DRC fairy might alleviate the issues you're having with this particular movie and/or composer.
  23. Sure. I mean, it's mostly a ~30hz extended movie with 1.5secs of massive ULF. But yeah, I guess it is unfiltered.
