Hey! We're getting into the season soon here near Chi-town. I thought I'd share what is going on this summer at the old outdoor theater.
I had been looking for a buried sub solution, and didn't find anything that I liked. So, I'm going to build a pair of DIY subs (mostly for use inside), and haul those big boys outside at night. That is job number one, I hope to wrap that in a month or six weeks.
Number two is to bury the wires, so I don't have to drag them out and lay them on the ground each time we want to have a show outside. I'm not sure yet if I will run just the speaker wire, or run a conduit outside and bring a power circuit there as well. If I run power, so I know that power isn't out there when we don't want it. We'll see how that goes.
Lastly, if I get to all that (and my schedule this year is packed, so I may not) my next project is a bigger screen. Right now we have a 16:9 foot screen, but I think I'd like to try a 23.5:10 foot screen. Yeah, baby CIH with an anamorphic lens outside on a screen almost 24 feet wide! I hope I can get to that... it might end up a 2008 project, but it is on the list.
I'll take new pics and post them here and put all the details on the outdoor theater site in my sig as well.
