Here is something to do. Add some near field subs right behind your seating. Then watch the expressions of your friends watching a explosion from the movie.
I built mine into my counter/bar area and it really is impressive for the added feel. Fully reclined back, you will have a very nice back massage.

Peer Home Theater

Yep. I have four subs, right behind my seats, to go with the five 18" I have up front in my baffle wall (3 in LCR's and 2 subs in baffle wall). My theater is on the second floor, so plenty of floor shake. I run sealed, so that I can boost down low. What to be able to hear and feel the helicopter blades and the wing beats in movies like Avatar. The sonic blast scene in Hulk is pretty cool, when you can feel the wave blasts.

I don't think you have as many seats as I do. I would need to build one 16 feet across. :-X

I counted six seats, so you only need six subs. Does not have to be a bar. :)

I have been having thoughts on replacing my 2 front 18's with a pair of sealed 24's. I do miss the very low end. With the four 18's behind the seats, my mid range tune is great, but pretty much lacking anything from 18 on down. The 24's should fix that. Haven't modeled it yet but soon.

I sealed my two PC 12 Plus cylinder subs today, re-balanced / re-calibrated everything including Audyssey, and WOW. LFE - not as loud on the ears while at the same time you feel it a lot more. The wife came in and said " the house is vibrating ". Then she said " oh, you're watching Lucy " ( my test disc )!

I've had my JVC  RS4500 4K laser projector over 3 years now. Still the best projector I've ever owned ( by a long shot ). And I'm loving it as much as ever. Lots of movies to watch this month!

I'm getting a backlog of movies ( old and new ) that I need to watch. Which isn't a bad thing I suppose.

I bought and watched Ford v Ferrari last night. Outstanding movie and crank it LOUD...the Atmos track is pretty impressive. I bought JoJo Rabbit as well, but won't watch that until this weekend when my son and his girlfriend are in town.

I agree with Dave - I watched Ford v Ferrari last night, and found it to be one of the most fun movies I've watched in a while, from every standpoint.  The movie itself was great, the picture quality was beautiful (clean, detailed, natural and realistic looking - just left me with a big smile on my face!), and the soundtrack was incredibly immersive and balanced.

I also filled a major gap in my movie watching showing The Shining in 4k a few nights ago.  Somehow, I had never gotten around to watching this.  I was amazed at how good the picture quality was.

I'm waiting to get " Dr. Sleep " soon before watching The Shining, for a Shining double feature ( probably on 2 consecutive nights ).

Great minds think alike - I'm about to watch that right now!

Seems like an appropriate corona virus quarantine double feature to watch on my RS4500, and a good wine pairing for Twinkies. I just need to find some Twinkies ( life imitates art ) !

Seeing as I have an RS4500, Lumagen, a Panamorph DCR lens and Kris Deering has calibrated my theater, I definitely feel like I have " The Ultimate 4K Home Theater " - at least that I can afford !

DLA-RS4500

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JVC Joins With Lumagen and Deep Dive AV
To Create The Ultimate 4K Home Theater

LONG BEACH, Calif., May 13, 2020 – Underscoring its commitment to deliver the best possible home theater experience, JVC has teamed up with video processor specialist Lumagen, and professional calibration company Deep Dive AV, to recommend a home theater package that delivers stunning, unparalleled 4K performance.

The heart of the package is the JVC DLA-RS4500 4K home theater projector that features native 4K D-ILA imaging chips, a 3,000-lumen laser light source, and a high resolution all-glass lens developed specifically for the DLA-RS4500. The projector is paired with a Lumagen Radiance Pro video processor, calibrated and configured by Deep Dive AV specifically for the JVC projector and the user’s home theater screen material. Key among several benefits the Lumagen processor provides is true scene-by-scene, and frame-by-frame, dynamic tone mapping for 4K HDR material.

“Our DLA-RS4500 has been widely praised as the best home theater projector on the market and we’re committed to ensuring that customers get the highest level of performance possible from it,” said Fred Zecha, General Manager, Custom Installation Sales, JVCKenwood USA Corporation. “That’s what led us to recommend the Lumagen processor as the ideal companion to the RS4500, especially when configured by Deep Dive AV specifically for our projector and the user’s preferred screen.”
The Lumagen processor provides six key benefits when used with the JVC DLA-RS4500:
Dynamic Tone Mapping for 4K HDR material – Dynamically analyzes HDR images on a frame-by-frame basis and automatically adjusts the brightness and color to optimize HDR performance for each scene, and each frame.
Superior 4K Upscaling – Lumagen is renowned for the quality of their No-Ring™ scaling.
Advanced Calibration Capability – Allows for comprehensive 1D and 3D LUT calibration to extract the best possible performance from the JVC projector and any input source.
Custom sizing and aspect ratio geometry controls for optimal display of all content.
Auto Aspect Ratio Selection for UltraWide Screens – Properly display any aspect ratio within the UltraWide screen automatically, preserving the source’s intended aspect ratio.
Non-Linear Stretch – Automatically adjusts 16:9, and higher, aspect ratio sources to fill an UltraWide screen.
“When we were evaluating projectors for our Lumagen Demo Theater, we looked at a number of brands and models. The combination of its laser light source, excellent contrast ratio, and full resolution 4k using an all-glass 100 mm lens system, made the JVC DLA-RS4500 the clear choice for us. When combined with Radiance Pro processing, and calibration by Deep Dive AV, our JVC DLA-RS4500 provides the Lumagen Demo Theater with exceptional picture quality for all content,” said Lumagen President Jim Peterson.

To optimize the performance of a JVC/Lumagen system JVC recommends Deep Dive AV, a professional calibration service with extensive experience with both JVC projectors and Lumagen processors. Deep Dive AV consults with the customer and configures the processor for the user’s projector and screen to create a system tailored to each user’s specific set up.

“Deep Dive AV’s goal is to optimize the visual experience through advanced calibration and comprehensive system setup. The Deep Dive AV-JVC/Lumagen combination provides the best of both worlds: stunning picture quality and minimal operator intervention. Simply turn the system on, select an input, sit back and enjoy,” said Kris Deering, owner/operator, Deep Dive AV.

The JVC DLA-RS4500 is the company’s top-of-the-line home theater projector. It combines a JVC-developed native 4K D-ILA device with the company’s proprietary BLU-Escent laser phosphor light source that delivers a brightness level of 3,000 lumens and 20,000 hours of operational life. In addition, the laser light source offers dynamic light source control for the highest contrast available. The 100mm lens was developed in conjunction with the 4K D-ILA device and is an 18-element, 16-group all glass lens with full aluminum lens barrel.
