Anyone has any other leads where one can get the FR703 equivalent fabric?

FR703? i think he used this http://www.fabricmatestore.com/p-407-fr701-black.aspx it is used allot for false walls and is acoustically transparent , i know i have and others have used it in our columns.

Thanks snickers1, I saw that fabric but my impression was 701 series is more into sound absorbancy rather than transparency, but I guess I am mistaken.  Mario does have on his first post FR703 listed for speaker frames' fabric, is that a typo?

 

FABRIC

* Red Walls - FR701 GOM Claret Accent

* Speaker Frames - FR703 GOM Black Fabric

Sorry about that. I corrected the typo on the first page of this thread.

Mario, did you buy the denim online?  If so, do you happen to have the link by any chance?  I am too having less than an inch clearance for the fabric depth and all I can find is over 1" of thickness. 

 

Also, have you ever found an optimal positioning for your subs?  I heard people try to put them back to back centered behind the screen shooting to the sides, that supposedly equally fills the room with the sound given you installed the traps on all 4 corners. 

 

thanks!

I bought the recycled denim through http://www.vyron.com/ (Brookfield, Wi Branch) - ask for Tim Barham.
It's their Ecosheild Titus product I believe.

Although, I would check a local Menards. I thought they started carrying a similar product.

Note, the specs on the denim says that it is 1", but in fact in my case, it was actually 3/4".

Every room will perform different with the subs and their locations, but there are some recommendations posted on the web. In my case, I have them all up front. I have yet to officially test turning them in or rotating them to see how that affects the room. It would probably be a good test. The HSU is a real bear though to move in and out so I haven't worked up the energy to move it since initially setting it into the upper corner cabinet.

Mario with your black lights around tray, did you have to have continues lights? Or are only a couple of 4 footers needed in each side?

I have 2 four footers in each section spaced evenly. So a total of 8 are up there.

You're very welcome and thank you. You might double check on the black lights...I know there was talk of some newer more efficient models becoming available in the Night Sky Mural thread.

Looking forward to talking to you about the Cinemar control software as well. It's always great to talk shop and business in the same call. smile.gif

Sorry for all the questions!! With your LED lighting did you go with 5050 2 watt a foot or 4 watt per foot ? Want to get lighting ordered tomorrow.

My bad!! I had read that already , missed in my question if you went with the 4 watt ( 300 led) on the stair nosing also. If I remember correctly somewhere I seen that you had to dim stage lighting and stairs down during movies quite a bit? If that's correct would I be better with the 2 watt ( 150 LED) strips?

No problem. Hard to find unless you knew to search for HitLights.

I ended up using the same LED lights on the stairs. You can dim them down to your liking. In there brightest settings they really light up the stairs and in their dimmest setting, it's perfect to just be visible enough to show the step in the dark.

Did you follow the speaker placement you detailed earlier in your thread? I have 2 rows of seating and one surround speaker at 90-100 degrees to 1st row.

I ended up putting the side surrounds just behind the front row...so 90-100.

I'll have to see if I can find a profile for you on the crown moulding and get back to you on that.

Mario, just curious why did you go with 36" door. I believe you were planning for a 32" door in the beginning. Were you concerned for the seats or screen fitting through the doorway?

Hi Jeff.

Yes - I did buy them at Menard's.
http://www.menards.com/main/shelving-visualizer/garage-basement/12-x-48-pre-finished-shelf/p-1482172-c-13051.htm

I cut them to the proper depth to fit my columns.

I bought the size to match the depth of the shelf though. They come in a variety of sizes.

Another question. You have rolls of insulation next to your subs in the front in a picture. Do you still have them in place? R30 roll? Did you take the plastic off of the sides but leave the cylinder wrapped in the original plastic? Is it compressed alot?

Mario,
Yet another question! I just spoke with Night Sky Murals and a questions about the soffit design surfaced. Since I am "borrowing" your design, I thought I would ask the expert.

Your soffit moulding concept shows a 7 3/4 opening from top of 2x4 to ceiling, did you keep this dimension? It is suggested I have a 10"-12" opening to allow black light to energize the ceiling. My ceiling areas are 7'3" x 9'9" and 11'2" x 9'9", which are smaller than yours.
Secondly, which lighting fixtures did you use and how did you mount them?

Adrian
