kind of speakers


The test DVD i use is "The Avia Guide to Home Theater" which not only has the test tones but has alot of other calibration test both for audio and visual.
The video calibration on the DVD is very useful for calibrating the brightness, contrast and color of your telivision.

The AVIA DVD is really helpful if you're willing to sit there. I spent hours sitting there watching gray boxes and lines.

Also agree with your previous post on the speaker matching. I went with the idea and matched my center and front mains. It's noticeable when cars go by.
Some really old pics. Everything is packed away now. Working on plans to build a new theater in the basement. :D

I am a polk fan as well. I have polk fronts, rears, center and sub. It doesn't sound as good as it used to b/c I don't have the surrounds mounted on the wall yet. Just haven't gotten around to running the wires in the wall to make it look nice. my rears are bookshelf speakers, I wish I had gotten multi-directional surrounds instead. In my living room they would sound better I'm sure. But I am extremely happy with my system and suggest the polk brand to anyone else in the market for speakers.
