BEF from Norway and his AVworld
« on: June 16, 2012, 10:54:31 AM »
Hello, welcome into my AVworld, I came across AVForums South Africa when JimGore built speakers I use in my home theater. I think it was very funny, so now I'm joined here and would like to share with you some information about my system.

I have been interested in sound and vision since I was only 3-4years old, have had it as a hobby since 10 years of age. The first surround setup I had was in 1989, it was not very good but it was surround  ;) Since then I have had many different setups, I've always wanted a system that could play all I wanted of sound but never had the space to it. When I moved 3 years ago had to have space to house such a system. Is this system I want to share information with you about.

My system is:
Processor: Sherbourn PT-7020A
Power amplifiers: 7 x Crown I-Tech4000 + 2 x Crown I-Tech8000
Speakers Front / Center: DIY by BEF, Tangen AVdesign inConcert Miles
Surround speakers: DIY by BEF, Beyma 15P80Nd + ribbon tweeter TPL150H
Sub: DIY by BEF 6 x 18 "+ 2 x 18" Beyma 18W1600NdE

Blu-ray: Oppo BDP-95
Projector: Sony VPL-VW95
Screen: Dream Screen V4 ProCurve HD 16:9 265cm / 120 "

Power: Monster HTS5100
Cables: All cables used are from Monster

This is the start of the project, there was a large basement with nothing in it, in the house. I made my workshop and it will be home theater.










I had to make a new door to get into what will be my home theater.

Long winters.

I understand in Norway lots of mad vehicles also get built in basements between September and April!

This looks like a better long-term project - hats off.

Wow! Room within a room sound proofing! Mm, lots of ideas here for the locals but looks expensive!! Welcome BEF!
You know that you can skip those snowbound winters in the Southern hemisphere summers here in SA!
