Moving into an apartment with wood joist floors - worried about neighbors hearing
All good suggestions about isolation etc. I really like the idea of meeting the neighbors and see if you can do a sound test. That way you will know how loud you can go and not constantly be wondering if you are pissing them off 😃.   
Help . . . I’m dumber than my active speakers!
I had Dynaudio Focus Actives. The biggest tower ones they had on the last gen. Tons of great reviews. Nah they were not my cuppa tea at all! They were however the most intelligible speaker I’ve ever had for tv. Music they were dull as hell.   
My First Stereo. What Was Yours?
One of the larger Pioneer Receivers from the 70s my dad gave to me. This was probably 92ish. He bought me some Cerwin Vega VS 120s for Christmas. I was a metalhead guy and was in heaven! lol. My buddy still has those speakers in his basement with ...

I allowed whatever factory default allows for bandwidth correction. Not sure what that is and I’m not sure you can change that. I’ve never got on the web page and messed around with the advanced settings. It does not show what changes it makes on ...

Ok I’m talking to myself probably but I’m excited 😆! I factory reset the Lyngdorf and started from scratch. No idea why this would have anything to do with it but I do know I’m the 2nd owner and you can get online and do all kinds of stuff to the ... 
Minimum Power Needed to Drive Klipsch Cornwall IVs? - Considering Erhard_Audio Ray
Is there something you don’t like with the Magnum combo? Just asking because it’s on my list for the same speakers. Always heard that the Cronus Magnum had some warmth. It had some balls as well. Kinda what I’m lookin for.    i heard the ones I b...

Also going to email Lyngdorf and see if they have any comments on why the crappy results

Well they have opened up substantially over the past few days. They are in the basement so I can leave them playing 24/7 at a pretty good volume. They have substantially more bass now than when I got them. Leads me to believe they were not fully b...

Mine came with all the damping done and also lined with NoRez. Binding posts also upgraded.

Wow that sucks about your experience with JL! I had 10 years of trouble free service out of mine. Only had it back for a few months after the recap of the amp. Hoping it’s good to go for a while but yeah with your experience I would be done with t...

I definitely noticed an uptick in the mid bass speed when I applied the crossover.  Very good improvement indeed. I need to get the wife and kid the hell away from me for a weekend so I can experiment!! lol. Prob not gonna happen anytime soon. Dad...

@james633 , I think you are on to something with the high pass. I haven’t ran room perfect again yet but set my crossover at 60hz both the subs and the speakers. Sounds better for sure and more dynamic. Gonna enjoy it that way till tomorrow and r...

@james633 , While the Lyngdorf has made every speaker I’ve hooked up to it sound way better with Room Perfect it has not been the case with the Cornwalls….. so far. I haven’t given up but so far it robs most of the bass and a good portion of the ...

I will say they are nothing like the Chorus 2 I had. Those could peel the paint off the wall without judicious use of EQ. My wife described these as warm and juicy sounding. Also pointed out how good the vocals were and I agree. I could not even g...

Pulled the trigger on the 1 year old Cornwalls. Perfect condition. I think they are outstanding looking with the walnut but ymmv. They sounded really really good at the sellers house. He had a real nice Ayon tube setup. Super dynamic and waaay smo...
