It’s not a table saw - just a multi-purpose foldable worktable.
Heavy duty cutting is using the wireless 4" circular saw.
The battery unfortunately is not common as I do have the water jet tool for washing my car and bikes. I did thought it’s common, luckily I opted for unit with battery when I bought it thru Amazon.
For the price I am happy and it does what it’s intended.
However if you are planning of whole day cutting - you will need extra batteries.
I had the juice ran out in 2-3 occasions, thankfully it wasn’t an issue as I had many other areas to attend to, thus I can have it plugged in to charge for 2-3 hrs before getting back to cutting.
Of the many tools that I bought, the circular saw is #1 best decision. Do not under estimate the effort to cut wood… my initial intent was just elbow greese, my 1st day I almost gave up. I placed order for the circular saw immediately that same night
The laser line level is probably the least neccessary. It is convenient validating the levels of the front speaker enclosures, but on hindsight, I realised these are not critical. There will be tolerance in the floor level and further variation in the cut out openings. In the end the ± 3-4mm is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
This has been my biggest step up in terms of DIY efforts, though the DIY speakers in the past was pretty challenging but that was very much in a different way.
The last 4 surround spkrs are still pending delivery. Not forgetting the 3 seater . Once these are in, I can do the final tuning and clean up the messy wiring at the back.
Thus far, the sound balance is much improved. The base responses from the 3 subs after EQ is most satisfying from the few reference clips;

I received the Zidoo Neo S the other day, the video output and playback is more consistent and reliable. This is a welcome improvement from the buggy Kodi on my HTPC.
However, music playback is still not ideal. The scraping of my flac collection takes a long time and ended with scan error .
In the pursuit of BASS NIRVANA… for HT audio, the bass response to me makes up 30-40% of perceived value/quality/performance.
Having audition a few impressive setups, I had wanted more tactile response that the current 12” fell short. After much research I settled on the Arendal Sound 1723 2S, these are 2x13.8” which the site claimed to be equivalent to a 21”… not really a scientific extrapolation.
These are 41.2kg each,… back breaking effort to unbox and safely get it out of the protective foams. Moving them into place is also freaking tedious esp the footer is quite grippy - ie I had to put upward lift pressure
Yep, those are “under utilised” secondary system in the living room. It is overkill for its current usage.
Planning to downgrade and simplify to an active speaker… no target at the moment.
Will source only after I manage to dispose of these.
Nice… That’s true, when the lights are off, it is only you and the movie you are watching. I personally think that you’ve done a great job for the media room. When u have finished setting up, don’t forget to invite me over.
