Holmes commonly has his kids working on the show. Son often says stupid stuff - lacks experience.

Holmes is one of the few shows I watch, so much crap that passes for entertainment.

I've learned a bunch from watching that show. I wish they'd focus more on the LV work.

Right, in the left ear. Is that the "right" ear?

DANG, now I'm confused. But not in "THAT" way. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Now Holmes has his son AND daughter on the show. Pretty funny watching the son chase the daughter around with a spider. LOGANESS says, "Oh, they're siblings, alright!"

Put a coat of the gray paint over the mud&tape for the inset shelf behind the bar, around the one window and the proscenium. Now the ENTIRE room is gray. Not musch of a pictures, but if you all insist, I guess I can take one tonight.

Also started to make the frames to surround the outlets for attaching fabric. I thought 5/4 stock was actually 1". I was going to make two and attach them on top of each other to get the 2" depth that goes around the stage but the 5/4 stock I bought (5/4 finger jointed & primed) is actually 5/4. Go figure. Would have been easier to just rip a 2X4 down to 2".

SO, can I use this 5/4 stock to make the rest of the frames for the 1" linacoustic, which is really 15/16s or should I rip down to match exactly?

What say you?

Growing up we used to say, left is right, right is wrong...

I am going to use 1/2" ply 15/32, and use 2 layers, so I will be at 15/16 which looked find on the rear screen wall.

Tom, if I'm understanding your question correctly, the 5/4" stock you have is 1.25" thick, which you are planning on using for framing around linacoustic, which is 15/16" thick.

If that's the case, then your linacoustic would be under the thickness of the stock by about 0.25". I personally wouldn't have an issue with that as you wouldn't need to worry about the linacoustic possibly "bulging out" your fabric.

Although there may be some downside to that .25" gap, I can't think of one.

4/4 stock is 1".....but a 1x is not.

Sure, you can use wood that is 1.25" deep to cover something that is 15/16" thick. Am I missing something?

The frames I made for my linacoustic panels are made from ripped 1x material. I would normally get 1X10 stock and rip it down to as many pieces that I can get out of it. The 1x side is nicely flush with linacoustic and the fabric has no issues holding in place.

I think the downside is that you will lose 1/4" from the inside of your room.

Ok, here's a possible downside that I just thought of. With tightly stretched fabric covering a gap of 1.25" (with 15/16" of that being linacoustic) to the hard wall, if someone pushes their finger or other object into the fabric to the wall surface, MAYBE the fabric will stretch enough to hold the indent and subsequently look bad until when and if it stretches back out. If the gap were say an inch instead, the linacoustic would re-expand pushing the fabric back out??????

Hard to say for sure unless someone has same set-up and tested.

Yeah, actually 1/2"...TWO sides to the room! At this point I just want to get done. What's a 1/2" here or there?

That 1/4" may be enough to set up a resonance with the subwoofer and cause them to vibrate like a drum head at certain frequencies. Probably more of a visual distraction than an audio one.

hmmmm....what if the linacoustic was pushed forward to he fabric side and the 1/4" was in the back (the wall side)? Seems like that would fix it.

Am I in an analysis paralysis, here?

You could probably add 1/4 inch batting material to either the front or backside. Shouldn't have any acoustic affect either way.

Problem with pushing the linacoustic to the front of the frame with nothing else is that there is nothing to keep there. It become a problem if someone presses into any of it.

I believe you would see some incremental increase in absorption due to the air gap behind the linacoustic. To what degree, and whether you will benefit from it is beyond me.

It won't matter at all. If you have no gap, you'll see the lincoustic pushing slightly into the fabric, so you need some gap. .25" seems like a perfect gap. The fabric won't move much with bass since it should go right through it (it IS AT, right?). If you are vibrating all of your panels, your head is probably vibrating too and your vision will be blurry. You won't be able to watch the panels and the movie at the same time. If you can make dents in your fabric, you'll dent your lincoustic too, so it won't bounce back anyway.

Maybe if you think about it for a few more weeks you will come to a greater understanding of the gap and its ability to trap spirits.
