Re: Define Good Set-up
The stuff you described, wires to the right place, proper fusing, wires and components properly secured, etc... makes for a solid install. All good installs start as a solid install.
A good install also does the extra things that make the most of the equipment used. The sub is matched to a proper enclosure to acheive a specific goal (SQ, SPL, SQL). The front speakers are angled and aimed to optimized imaging and staging. All gains are set properly and levels matched. Phasing on all the speakers are optimzed to minimize cancellation as much as possible.
Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
Life's tough...it's even tougher when you're stupid.
