Default help me!

Hello everyone,
Sooner Im going to build d'same project as Tiggerpif built "FT1600", Im just waiting for my stuffed to be here (thank's to a friend). I want to ask every one expertise, also who made d'same project specially Tiggerpif, did you (all) buy Bob Braines plan design or just used Bob existing plans from his website and do some tweaking, also did you people used Bob "BSC ckt" or just disregard it (filter). And also I want some review of how "FT1600" sound. I'm afraid, if I could not built one of yours. Or do I really need to buy the plan for $25(I'm on a tight budget). Any input, comment and suggestion will be appreciated. Btw I'm 100% newbie in this field, so please gentleman i want your explanation to be very friendly.

I haven't even bothered with it.

Just with the two Fostex mains the vocals are amazingly clear and if I want more centered image from some movies I just turn on the Vmax circuit on my Harmon/Kardon and it strengthens it up. It simulates a center channel from the two mains.

I do not think I will even bother with it. I just finished the veneer on the subwoofer of mine and would like a more tighter accurate base than a bandpass can do but for movies it is perfect. I think spiking the sub to the floor (HDWD) with the small metal pads to protect the wood will make the base more accurate. The only problem is the spikes that I get from Parts express use a M6 stud - very hard to get brass wood inserts for them. Right now the sub uses rubber feet.

So I think that for the current housing situation the center channel is scrapped. I just don't feel the need for it now.

I don't blame you. Do the vocals follow the person speaking? In theaters you get actual side to side motion as the actor moves across the screen but at home with a CC that doesn't happen, at least for me.

My belief is that the best CC is no CC... good to hear that tact is working for you.

Bernard,
Does your Onkyo have an option for a phantom center?
