Got the wood stained and poly'd. I'm going to give it a few days to set up and then glue the ends and throw some weight on them.





And the part that that looks nice, but won't be seen...

Do you still like the 100" screen, or do you wish you would have gone bigger?

For 16x9 material, it's great. I did wish I had gone with a 2.40:1 for a little while keeping the same screen height, but after installing TMT5, I can zoom the really wide stuff to fit 16x9... I hate black bars no matter where they're at.

So yes, I'm quite content with the 100" screen.

Little more progress. I got the bottom end cap glued on with some Loc-Tite PL Premium. I tried pulling the plastic liner off in the tube, but it wanted to pull too much paper off as it went around. I ended up sanding it off instead.

I put several coats polyurethane on the ID of the tube to seal it off. I wanted to get all plastic off, but since it was a pain, I decided to just seal it in.












I took this pic to reference size.


Now I got that I have the interior of the tube all sealed up and the end caps glued on. Both my 1/2" plywood boards (top/bottome) didn't exactly center up with the MDF and I knew it would give me some more work when I got to this point.

Because I'm trying to make this look like my SVS, I only want to put a single layer of velvet on the sub and want it to be smooth. Since the endcaps both over hang one direction 1/16" (or less), I need some type of filler that will adhere to the polyurethane finish and glue, does anyone have recommendations for this? All I want to do is build it up and smooth it out into the tube so you wan't notice anything when the sock is on. I should have done like SVS and made the caps just slightly smaller than the OD of the tube and center it... I'd be only needing the sock at that point if I had.

I tried to use the glue to smooth it out... But that didn't turn out like I hoped.

As always, I love pics:










When I build another one, it'll be much faster, I've figured it all out now.

Thank you, but I don't think SVS would be happy if I sold them looking like this.

I do have a few friends that want me to build them some Sonosubs, so I think I'll help them build them.
Most of them have spare drivers that they want to put to use.

I have to take a day to seriously address sub placement right now. I get better bass from one sub in my green room than I do with any amount of subs in my theater.

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=269-972 - They look EXACTLY like the ones on my SVS.

I picked up an external sound card and gave REW a shot and did a comparison with my Klipsch Sono before and after the 8033 EQ as well as the same with the SVS.

Here's what I came up with:

Klipsch Sono vs SVS PC12-NSD w/ NO EQ:



Klipsch Sono vs SVS PC12-NSD w/ Anti-Mode 8033 EQ:



Klipsch Sono before and after 8033:




SVS PC12-NSD before and after 8033:




Klipsch Sono Waterfall w/ NO EQ:



Klipsch Sono Waterfall w/ Anti-Mode 8033 EQ:



SVS PC-12 NSD Waterfall w/ NO EQ:



SVS PC-12 NSD Waterfall w/ Anti-Mode 8033 EQ:


I suppose my Klipsch Sono is doing pretty well and is a farily close match to my SVS.

Hey Scott,

I still need to build the fabric frames, paint the doors and put trim around the rack, but it's done for the most part. It's true what they say; once you put the projector up, work slows down drastically. I also lost a lot of motivation in actually working on it as I use the theater all the time for gaming.

Honestly, not really. The green room got curtains and such and was converted into a toy room for my daughter as we never used the room.

The theater really has no change as I got really tired of working on it and everything is functional. Maybe I'll get to the final touches this winter.
