@tooblue , this is all tongue-in-cheek and meant to poke fun at all audiophiles, myself included. If I have offended anyone who owns a Bose Acoustimass 10, I apologize. Yes, the Wilsons are better but that doesn't take away from just how good the Bose are.
You have the speaker placements backward.
For a more organic sound, patch the holes in the ceiling and dig holes in the floor to fit the speakers into. Be sure to dig down deep, as that is where the earthy organic sound originates from.
I think you have made a mistake. You had the right brand (Bose) before you bought the Wilson Max. But you should have gotten the Bose Wave radios. You can sell the Wilsons and put 14 Bose Wave radios in the room and put on the SAME radio station for all of them. Now you will have a WAVE of perfect sound.
@millercarbon, streaming movies is a whole other topic. With all the Wilsons in the room, I found I had no room for a big screen but we found a totally acceptable solution. My wife and I stream movies on my new Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus smartphone. Make sure you get the Plus model since it has the bigger screen. Anyway, the Wilsons make you forget you’re watching such a small screen and since this new phone has a curved screen, we have found it to be a very immersive movie viewing experience.
As coincidence would have it, I have precisely the same set up! Small world. Except when the wife and I watch a movie on her Galaxy s10 Plus, we each use a small pair of binoculars. Identical to an Imax theater experience. Also, how does she feel about Barry Manilow sitting in your lap? Don’t really wish to dwell on the happy ending part......
Sadly, I feel the frustration of the OP. I too made a very big mistake when I bought a Basis Work of The Art turntable (look up the price) and installed it into the trunk of my car since I love my treasured vinyl. To my disappointment, every time I drove over a pothole, speed bump, or flattened dead squirrel, the turntable would skip. What else has an audio lover have to do to enjoy their music?
This is a fun thread. Nice that we can all be crazy at times.
@2psyop , I know what you're saying about the Bose Waves. I almost bought them since they were on sale at the local Best Buy but in head-to-head double blind testing performed by my dentist friends between the Bose Waves and the Wilsons, 4 out of 5 dentists preferred the Wilsons. I can't stress enough how important it is to make buying decisions based on proven scientific methods, otherwise, audiophiles would be no better than squirrels.
NOT because its funny, but because I am fortunate to have your setup, but I am in a 24x24x6.5 foot room so I was able to add the $2.2 million, 1.5 tonne Opera Only amplifier by Andrea Pivetta. I was worried someone matched my exact system and I would have to somehow find something more expensive so I could still have the absolute BEST system ever. But since my system costs more than yours, I can be assured I have the best sounding system......
Truly an inspired write up, however...
I tried Google and baidu.com for three hours to find the Poodle ear wax infused fuses.
Talk about hard to find as rocking horse poo, what brand is it please?
Elizabeth, I think you're pulling our legs, I doubt an owl or two would make any significant improvement in small room treatment. However, the rest makes perfect sense. Do you have any advice on furry animal per cubic foot, and what ratios? Squirrels : racoons : road kill
Thanks in advance.
Serious indeed! Remember those sleeper speakers from Radio Shack, you know, the 8 inch high two ways? Real sleepers. Well, when RS took a nose dive I bought out their entire inventory of said speakers! I don't have room in my house, so I built my system on the patio (no need for room treatment!). This way the neighbors can also enjoy the fine system and excellent music I play. So 30 speakers in an array derived from the golden ratio. Talk about being there!
And you know they really need power to open up properly, so I have a 200w pure class A mono block driving each speaker. I also had to sell one kidney and half my liver to pay for the great deal I got from a Russian I met online for a small 5 megawatt nuclear power plant (salvaged from an old submarine, I think) to power my class A amps and the air conditioning required to keep the house from melting. Talk about pure clean power! Not quite sure what is going on, though. The power plant keeps steaming and sinking into the ground. I didn’t think it was that heavy.
