    What are the speakers behind the Ureis?

I'm doing up a page to describe how and why I managed to bring home these old friends after mixing on 813Cs for twenty years and this particular pair of 811Cs for ten years. I've also started a page showing the pics of UreiCollector's rig, just to show that I'm not exactly batty in loving these things, at least by comparison... I could point you to the pages if you are interested.

    By the way, UreiCollector, I'd love to hear your observations comparing the 811As to the 811Cs, as well as comparisons of the 813A and B series.

    Bob

    PS, Interestingly, my 811Cs replaced a pair of Audio Techniques Big Reds in '92 and our 813Cs replaced a pair of Altec 19s in '86.

    They are Boston Acoustics A150s, great acoustic suspension stereo speakers.

    Subs complete, finally!

    The 2242H's rock the house! Literally. I'll be adding trim to the Urei's soon. Enjoy the pics!

    I'd be interested in seeing photos of any other HT systems using the Urei's.

    Screen is a motorized Da-Lite High Contrast Cinema Perf 106"
    Projector is a Panasonic PT-AE900U, driven by a DVDO iScan HD+ scalar

    How about EQ for the center to counter the screen effect, and maybe some absorbing material for killing the...whaddya call it...echo between the screen and the wall?

    I havn't done anything special for the center. I am considering some acoustic foam on the front wall between the speakers, but am undecided.

    To my supprise, the screen is remarkably transparent. I wouldn't say it's acousticly "invisible", but I have to admit I was pleasantly supprised with how little it seemed to have colored the sound.

    The moire effect on the picture is far more distracting than the minor (in my opinion) acoustic affects of the screen. I can see "ghost" images due to reflections of the image off of the wall behind the perforated screen.

    Bummer. What's the solution for that I wonder. Black felt?

    Edit - Oh yeah - awesome theater by the way. I'd do the same thing in a heartbeat. Except I'm a sucker for black / dark walls and carpet. Maybe black carpeted walls with reflective surfaces added to taste.

    Like I even know what I'm talking about.

    =)

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    I thought about black felt, but I'm not sure I'd like the apperance (lights on). I'm torn, as always. I'm going to start with a darker shade of the wall color in flat paint, and see what kind of results I get. If i'm still not happy, then I'll try something else. Perhaps a carpet of sorts on the front wall....but I don't if I'll be happy with the apperance.

    It's a tough situation, but compromise is the name of the game. Having the center channel directly behind the screen is well worth this trouble though, I wouldn't do it differently.

    Considering I use this room for listening 90% of the time, and movies 10%, it hasn't been bothering me much. The lack of trim around the Urei's is more irritating at this point.

    Cheers! Frederick

    Could you have a pull down black felt curtain behind the screen? Maybe gang it to your screen?

    Hi everyone,

    I've finally gotten around to hanging the trim on the Urei's. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the picture. I'm sure it sounds every bit as good as it looks!
