We built this ceiling in our shop (picture of it assembled on the floor before we ran the bits and pieces through our spray booth). We disassembled, loaded in the trailer, took it to the job site and installed it in less than a day. Obviously the rest of the trim isn't up at the time these photos were taken.

I would think with all those chambers the sound would resonate and bounce around in there? I'm sure that is not the case, but why the elaborate ceiling treatement? Is there a reason for it other than looks?

Mostly interior design. You'll better see as more photos of progress are posted. As to the acoustic performance...this will be a THX Certified Screening room and I'm not speaking to the room design until you read about it elsewhere.

Are speakers in-wall speakers in a wall (false wall?) behind the screen?

The speakers are not in-wall speakers. They are mounted in a baffle wall behind the screen.

Dennis, is this going in the THX Certified Screening Room you discussed with Julie and myself at CEDIA?

This is some impressive wood working! I thought that level of craftmanship was gone over 100 years ago!

Ahh, but it's not the tools that count, it's the craftsman. Remember they did work as fine as that with crude hand tools. (My father was an antique collector).

The joists are existing. Clips + channel.

Awesome. Hope you can post more pics as you progress.
Do you have any "work-in-process" pictures of the ceiling?

Very nice job...hopefully we'll get to see it finished.

It took about a week in the shop to do all the fabrication.

We're doing a full step by step photo journal on the construction for publication.

Not being critical or anything, but don't all those wood panels really reflect the sound? The last and only full thx theater I saw, which was in Electronic Lifestyles magazine last year, the room was completely acoustically paneled?

Out of interest, what are the dimensions of the room? and what is the ceiling height before and after the inclusion of the coffered panels?

P.S. love your work!
