I see that you remove the black cover to access the back of the screen. How do you do that? Is there a clip?

Theres a fabric pull attached to the side of one of the frames. I use that to remove the first frame. All other frames come out easily after that.

If you have time take a pic of it, so I can see it. This is perfect for me, because the area where I want to put the screen there is a Pipe that I might need to access in the future. Thanks

Nothing fancy. Just a strip of fabric looped and stapled to the side of the frame.

Great job. Just wanted to ask where did you get your ceiling mount? I've been looking for a ceiling rail mount just like yours. Thansk.

I assume you're asking about rail slide for the anamorphic lens?

The project mount is just a Chief RPA series mount you can find anywhere.

It stays in place by tension fit and velcro. You may not even need the velcro if you build them to fit snuggly.

Sorry if I keep asking you, but I'm planning to do exactly the same. How can the velcro stick with the wood? I'm don't 100% how you did it. Thanks

Staple the velcro onto the wood frame.

Pocoloco, love your thread - a lot of the photos aren't showing up as of page 2 (just seeing the dreaded blank photo X). Any way to fix that so we can see the construction images and more details on the stage and screen construction?

Broken photos fixed. Sorry it took so long,


Also upgraded the three front speakers to high efficiency horns.

I've been using studio monitors in my HT happily for the past 8 years but was getting bored and wanted something with bigger, more dynamic sound. I contemplated doing a SEOS build but picked up 2 x JBL AM5215's and one JBL AM6215 for my LCR on eBay for cheap. 98db efficient using JBL's PT waveguides, with 90 x 50 degree dispersion with a compression driver and 15" woofer.

http://www.jblpro.com/BackOffice/ProductAttachments/JBL_AM5215_95.SS.v1.pdf
http://www.jblpro.com/catalog/general/ProductFamily.aspx?FId=25&MId=2

In short, they are amazing. Huge sound stage, presence, slam, detailed but not harsh and play effortlessly loud. Easily powering them with a denon 4311. The only minus is they are lacking in bass so they absolutely need a sub.

Here are a few pics while getting them installed.

Thanks for fixing the pics Pocoloco, your build has always been one of my favorites on the site!

+1 on thanks for the pics. I love this build, which is in the financially acheivable but fantastic DIY realm.

I certainly don't intend to hijack this thread but I wanted to share how much of an inspiration it was in my own room especially since I never got around to doing my own build thread.  Anyway, here's what I did as a result of this great build thread.  Thanks (again) to pocoloco for his inspiration and help answering my pm's!

 

Concept in Sketchup:

 

 

 

Rough framing of stage and false wall:

 

 

4 Frames around screen that would be covered in GOM:

 

 

Speaker stands added (subwoofer would eventually replace center stand as that's where REW showed the flattest response for a single sub):

 

 

Final product (with masking panels to convert 16:9 to 2.35:1 shown):

 

 

I'm currently in the process of building soffit style base traps to put behind the false wall to improve bass decay and FR:

 

Concept:

 

 

The traps will be burlap "socks" stuffed with pink fluffy and hung from the front wall:
