Those are super fun !

I grew up in a family of motorsports and toys, pretty much had every toy under the sun at one point but one of those. I always wanted one too! I'm jealous. I did a lot of motocross up till about I was 33 and got married. My parents have about 6acres, I think I actually liked using the bobcat or mini caterpillar and building jumps as much as riding them in my final years. Lol.

I'm in New England so it's transitioning to snow mobiles for me. God that thing looks fun! I'm jealous for sure. I wouldn't get any theater work done either lol..

Added another layer of 5/8 DW with GG on top of MDF for a 1 3/4" baffle face..



1" linacoustic on the baffle




Still Need to add 3 mil poly and another layer of linacoustic to finish the face of the baffle....

With the exception of the screen wall.. that pretty much wraps up the construction of the what I'll call the "Hard Build" of the room.. No More Drywall... No more OSB... No more Green Glue.... No more cleaning the gun... No more saying "another layer".... Woo Whooo....

On another note, I originally planned for a 12' wide 2:40... Lately I've been considering 12' wide CIA probably 2.05 .. So im compiling the list of pros and cons... The cost diffrential for the screen/ masking panels is a small uptick comparitively speaking, although I would probably leave the top and bottom panels in place 95% of the time.. I think it would get me closer to the IMIN look when wanted.... other than pushing the lumens requirement ($$) higher, I'm not seeing any other show stoppers.. I have the riser height for second row line of sight.... interested in anyone else's opinion on CIA vs CIH... is it worth it for the ~ 10" of additional height? What are the other pros and cons?

Strong looking baffle wall is strong.

I have a question on this (if you ever return from driving that beast).

The speakers mount totally flush into the wall, with no gaps on the side or the back right ? And you'd need to know the exact dimensions of your speakers and subs being placed in the baffle wall before you could design or build it right ? What happens if there's a little space behind the speaker ? The subs are deeper than the speakers for instance ....

If I may chime in... The only thing that matters is that the front of the speaker is flush with the front* of the baffle wall. It does not matter what space there is behind the baffle wall, or what gap there is behind the speakers. The gap between the speakers and baffle wall should be as small as possible and closed with a suitable foam.
*) NB: the front of the baffle wall means the hard stuff, such as the MDF, not the absorber material you mount on top of that.

And I agree, this is a very nice example of a baffle wall. Good going KNKKNK!
