This is a sample five cabinet home theater configuration from
The Foundation Series. It uses the amazing FM2
mirrored pair as the full-range main/front speakers. Adding an
FC2 center channel speaker and a pair of FR1 surrounds
creates an experience that is far beyond the ordinary!
(Finished in Red Mahogany)
Here is an example of a six cabinet home theater system from
The Foundation Series. This sub/sat
(subwoofer/satellite) system includes the awesome FS4 mirrored
pair as the main/front speakers and the earth shaking FB4 quad
12" subwoofer. The FC2 center channel speaker and a pair of
FR1 surrounds complete the system that most people only dream
of! (Finished in Fruitwood)
The Master Theater 5.1 six cabinet system was designed
for today's digital audio/video receivers. The VerSat
(Versatile Satellite) is used for the front/main, center and surround
speakers. The VerSat is no small bookshelf cube. It is an
amazing 40-pound powerhouse capable of full-range sound by itself.
However, The Master Theater 5.1 also includes a
300-watt dual ported subwoofer. After adding the VerSub
subwoofer the speaker system disappears and the room comes alive!

Infinity Kappa 7, 8 and 9 EDC™ Crossovers ordered from Australia.
This job took more than 16 hours. The customer had these kind words to report:
"These crossovers fitted to my Kappa 9ís have been a revelation. The performance is astounding,
bass from these has to be heard to be believed in comparison to their performance prior to fitment.
Set up with sub channel to these and also a pair of Yamaha yst 1500ís and it can be hard to tell
which one is doing the work. Not how we use in normal circumstances but an interesting trial.
Also of note at levels requiring ear muffs no qualms from the amplifier whatsoever, previous to
this, much lower levels had amplifiers out to lunch on a regular basis".
