Snickel i need to get you name also. Mines Reece if you havent caught on lol. But im not 100% sure on the exact finish. It will be black no matter what to match all black furniture and entertainment center. I was thinking of disgusing it as some type of furniture itself or i could just get lazy and go with some bed liner on it and paint it black.

Thankyou. It sounds pretty good also except thats not a very good place for bass. I have a nasty 10-15db null from 40-55hz . I may build another box to look like the THT and put those in it and have them both flank the entertainment center. There is no limit with DIY thats why i love it.

Yes your not kidding i know i need a 2nd THT but theres no way right now i could get approval. Thats why i just wanted to make a bedroom my theater room with a 92" screen. But the rooms are like 11x12 i think may be too small.

Maybe not, my room is about 11'x11' and I'm currently employing about a 90" screen to "fill" my visual duties. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I sit with my back against the wall parallel to the screen, so around 10 1/2' when factoring in the distance from the back of my head to my eyes. I've actually fantasized about the possibility of going bigger, but alas, my projector's resolution would be the limiting factor (...I probably wouldn't go much bigger though...).

Well i got panel 6 and and its bracing attatched tonight. I tell you its so much easier if you secure the bracing to the panel before you secure the panel itself. The space is so tight to work with so it just eliminates a small headache and huge mess IMO. Id post some pics but trusty old photobucket seems to not be so trusty anymore and taken a dive. And im not too computer savy so thats the only way i knew how to post pics.

Thats awesome your right cant have enough bass. I read alot on these Tuba's and theyre outperforming so many other sub's its amazing. Well when you get started let me know if you need an extra set of hands. Also i have extra mounting hardware i can give you if youd like to save about $10 haha. No heat in the garage ive been toughing it out. Its not that bad if your moving around doing stuff.

I take back my statement about it not being to cold in the garage. Geez its miserably cold in there now haha. I have everything cut and ready to go just need to assemble it all but im too cold to do this right now. I have two tiny space heaters going in there and two large shop lights that put off some good heat around my work area so maybe after dinner it will be a little warmer.

Oh yea and if the plans havent come through yet check your spam folder thats where they went when he sent them to me twice haha.

Well ive got all panels, braces, and reflectors installed. I went to mess around with the final side panel and have a slight problem. Im sure its because every single panel i have was and still is warped ever so slightly. But i can get the top two corners to align perfectly but then on the bottom its off by about a half inch under hung on one side and over hung on the other side. Not sure if securing the top down with a few screws and then just swiveling the board would work or not. Im afraid since its off so much i might crack some of the panels by ripping the screws out from the pressure. Or should i just turn the box on its side and trace a new side panel? Its wierd because when standing the box up on both ends, front and back, and the one side its level.
