The sub sounds very good and blends well. It is not boomy at all, I think having the second sub at the rear of the room helps.

Work had pretty much come to a halt in the room after my last post. I concetrated on some Cat5 wiring, routers etc and started the baseboard trim. Most of the baseboard is up and I really became discouraged with the crown molding. I didn't have the right tools and it wasn't coming out right. I think I put it up three times only to tear it down.

Well, I'm happy to report that I've now overcome the crown molding obstacles and should have it installed by the end of the weekend. Also on this weekends list is the shelf in the stairway, subwoofer grill cover and some odds and ends.

Fast Forward: So it has only been a couple months and the crown molding, shelf and speaker grill are all done.

This has become the most used room in the house and I have no regrets about turning it into a family room with a nice integrated surround sound system for everyday use over a more dedicated space.

I followed your build from the start and love how it turned out, especially the cabinetry.

The room is looking GREAT!! I hope you didn't take any of the remarks about the drywall screws personally!! It was the phrase "crap ton" that had me laughing!!

The room looks GREAT!! Glad to see I'm not the only one taking years to finish!! I truly just have some small items to deal with, finishing the trim is probably the biggest of them all.

Except now I need to learn more about networking!!! ugh!! Again, great job on the room!!!

Oh, I see this thread is 334 days old but your sig still doesn't say 100%... Any updates???

I started my build and build thread 6/14/2007! So I am coming up on 5 years of "theater building" so I sure understand those that have been in the building process for the long haul. I'm roughly at 95% as well, takes a long long time to get that last 5% done.

Regards,

RTROSE

My (slower than molasses) HT build here.
Now a Certified Carpet Counselor and Plumbing Counselor (Self given titles - pay no attention).
Enjoying my "almost done" theater.
