|QuietClips, resilient channel, double 5/8 drywall with Green Glue installed.
||Had 1 square tube projection 11'W x 6'H screen frame made at local machine shop.
||Drilled holes through floating double drywall to studs/blocking.
||Procured Somfy Sonesse ST30 DCT roller shade motor, 2 tubes, & accessories,
||Procured pulleys & Eagle Aspen ROTR100 Antenna Rotator.
||Mounted screen frame, rollers, & pulleys on 2 stand-offs to studs/block to maintain isolation from floating drywall.
||Made an 11 wood pulley for ROTR100 to control traverse curtain rod for horizontal masking.
||Installed angle aluminum to hold traverse rod, mounted ROTR100, and cables/pulleys to control horizontal masking. Confirmed / testing operation.
||Built 14.5H x 13'W x 6.5'D bass trap riser.
I decided to use the ROTR100 instead of motorized traverse rod for several reasons: Up to 99 presets instead of 2 or 3; ~0.1 increment adjustments; & cost... I opted for the large pulley approach for the ROTR100 versus tearing it apart as I am not a big fan of disassembling new items unless I am greatly enhancing the performance, appearance, or reliability.
I also shifted my aspect thoughts a bit as well - rather than having a native 16:9 frame, I decided to use a native 1.85:1 frame. I will couple this with the AE7000 power zoom preset capability. Essentially 1.85:1, 16:9, & 4:3 will share CIH and 1.85 & 2.35:1 will share CIW. This also shifts a requirement for a Vertical preset to instead a Horizontal preset, where I have plenty to spare. New presets are as follows:
