Reminds me of Ronnie Jackson's comment on how his moved the ceiling joists when it was going.
And that was a BUNCH of GG you used. I did 2 layers of drywall without GG and mine is pretty quiet outside so I can imaging no leakage from this room. great thread and I am now subscribed.
John.. I'm still waiting to see how well the efforts for sound isolation stand up to the LF of the IB.. but as of now.. i can crank the stereo in the room to nearly unformfortable levels and you can not hear a thing in the kitchen above, and the only thing you can hear in the room with my 2 boys running around upstairs is the Hum from the florescent light.. so far I think the efforts were worth it.
Welcome back.. the basement is looking Great!!

Manny Thanks.. It'll be a minute or two before their hooked up. I really didnt need the speakers yet, I had the size dimensions but i wanted them physically in my hands so I could start on the columns.

Like everyone else, I too, am selfishly waiting for that IB chamber to become a... fully operational battlestation.
Sorry for the cheesy Star Wars reference - I couldn't resist. The IB is just so creepy cool. What color will the lighting be again?
Keep up the good work.
KJ.. I am going to try Blue LED light strips in the back of the manifold behind the drivers, if thats not bright enough I'll switch to white.. May the Force be With You

Ok .. I have everything needed (I think) to Power up the IB and eventually EQ it to the room. Everything was ordered from ZZsounds
- Behringer ECM8000 Measurement Microphone
- Behringer EP2500 Power Amplifier
- Behringer FBQ2496 Feedback Destroyer Pro
- M-Audio MobilePre USB Interface with Microphone Preamp
- M-Audio MIDISport UNO 1x1 MIDI Interface with Cables and Connectors
- On-Stage Tripod/Boom Microphone Stand
- Whirlwind MC20 XLR Microphone Cable
Unfortunately, I'll be on travel most of next week so it'll be the end of the month before I can get around to the initial test.
Bryan also completed the accoustical design, (Great guy, bless him for his patience with me). and is putting together the treatment materials list for me.
So.. I will soon have everything I need to move into the next stages of the project.
