After a few rounds of calibrations and ironing out some mistakes, finally starting to realize the potential of the system. Quite satisfied with the bass performance, it it feels little value at this stage to work further on the full range channels aspects. Currently crossed at 60hz bass management.
Currently building up the 4 pre-cut woofer cabs for the 2x12 for each LR mains. But really the 1x18 is working very well. Should really maximise return on efforts, ie starting on the atmos build.
With this chapter complete, too the opportunity to document and update a bit of details on the resources spent on the room so far. Have it broken down by major categories.
Just sharing what the Taiwanese are doing. They say the atmos sounds fuller and scenes like airplane flying overhead sounded more realistic. I watch a Chinese calibrator named Ken also promoted this idea, he mentioned he saw it done in a Dolby atmos cinema in US. So sharing with bros here who has the hardware n space to try it.
I know everyone says bass is Omni directional, but ever since I experienced a jet plane flying over me and hearing the roar/bass tracking overhead with the plane, I believe there’s more to it then that. Just can’t forget that feeling lol
