  2. Yeah there are two channels on each speaker a left and a right not two lefts and two rights. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks! This is exactly what I was thinking and was 98% on but I like to double check. My version of measure twice, cut once. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Have a Mirage MMS with the m-801e amplifier. In the kitchen I've got two snapav dual voice coil speakers. Here's the question:. Can I connect both of these dual voice coil speakers to a single zone on the m-801e amp? The speaker is 8 ohm from what I'm reading, not sure if thats total or per channel. The m-801e says it can handle 4-8 ohm loads, again not sure if thats total or per channel. Any insight would be appreciated, really really want these as one zone. In fact can't really afford to have it any other way. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. All I care about with an alarm system is if it does what it's intended to do which is stop a burglary. An in monitored system, hell a sign on the door or in the yard, does that as well as a monitored system. The time an alarm goes off till the arrival of a police officer is more then a burgler needs to get in and out. Outdoor sirens are more effective then monitoring. As for fire protection this does offer some value but still very little. A residential sprinkler is a much better investment and will save your house while a monitored alarm will get the FD there but fire doubles in size ever 22 seconds so...

  6. Seriously? Because you sell a lot of alarm system and i said they are a waste of money? Ill clarify that, monitored burglar alarm systems are a waste of money. However, they monitored fire alarm is a good investment of course today nest and others provide their own monitoring. Also a local only burglar alarm isn't a horrible purchase.

  7. No alarm system here, believe they are an utter waste of money. Not a waste of money is my trusty Springfield Armory XD Mod2... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. We ended up going with http://www.ionproducts.net. The Sumpro line is awesome! I'd say it's the Bentley of sump pump systems. Also added their Ion Gateway which provides cellular alerts, the system also had dry contacts so can also integrate it into C4 http://www.ionproducts.net/batterybackupsystems/sumpro-platinum/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Very similar to my set up. 5.1 or 3.1 are realities in a room such as this First you'll never pressurize that room without blowing windows out so your expectation of subwoofer performance need to be in line with reality. I would be doing in-wall up front, specifically Triad and either Silver or Gold series depending on space availability / wall depth. If wall space is an issue or you want an even more clean look I'd do a GoldenEar SuperCinema XL soundbar mounted to the tv. This is the set-up I'm using and the GoldenEar is the best sounding bar I've heard and arguably one of the best on the market. I'd get the biggest sub I could afford or that could be tolerated in the room. SVS, JL, GoldenEar, JTR, etc. In my case the sub had to be in the room and I originally did 2 Triad slim-subs with a RackAmp 700 and am now adding in a third to cover a dead spot in the middle of the room.

  10. Interesting and some welcome features http://www.recode.net/2017/3/3/14766486/new-amazon-alexa-echo-phone-calls-intercom-system-video Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Really dislike all of these acquisitions. I so dislike giant conglomerets it hurts consumers in the end by providing less competition and innovation. But I guess it's the way of the world. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That's for sure, Triad makes great in wall products. Just finished installing two in wall slim subs in a family room last week. You feel like you handling traditional in room subs, they weight that much. SOLID. Two running off a RackAmp 700 have a good deal of thump. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Seriously why can't we edit a title Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. http://www.cepro.com/article/control4_purchases_triad_speakers_for_9.6m?utm_source=CEPWeekly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=content&eid=343801110&bid=1678503 WOW! Wonder if they will also keep their normal channels or if it will go exclusively C4. Also seems like a steal at 10 million. Hell, had I known they were so cheap I'd have considered putting in an offer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yeah, but so much comes out that is Bluetooth. Always feels like we're missing out on possible cool tech. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
