A kreg drop in top is a possibility. As was Incra. Or I could use a cheap one like this $99 RYOBI I have from HD, and just take the legs off it.

I kind of made a DIY table back in Bryan's thread when I first played with raising panels.

All you need is a hole in some MDF for the router to poke through and you have a router table.

It's the fence system, adjustments, featherboards, miter gauges and all the fun stuff that is a pain if you DIY. If you want a proper one better to buy it IMO. But a make shift router table is pretty easy.

Mario,

I wanted to thank you again for your hospitality the other night. It was great meeting you and experiencing your theater was an absolute thrill. Although, I have to admit it was bad experiencing some of your extra treats, ie d-box. All that did was cost me money!! Your entire basement is awesome and I appreciate you sharing it with us.

Jeff

You bet Jeff.

It was great to talk shop with you and James. Thanks for the bottle of wine!

BTW, I noticed my Darbee had been turned all the way down (Perhaps when I unplugged it a while back), so the picture got even better after I reset that back up to the levels I initially had it at.

Also, I'd probably recommend you and James go with the Dune Base 3D for playback over the other models I suggested.

Let me know if you end up going with the M&K speakers.

Hopefully you don't need a visit to the chiropractor after experiencing the D-Box. That Flight of the Pheonix is pretty violent. I noticed it had moved James' chair over about 6" even with him in it.

Hope the wine is to your liking, consider it thanks and prepayment for future guidance

I'm interested in the Dune. Wondering if it will be compatible with 4k?

Interesting about the Darbee. I thought picture was already great!

I am between Triad and M&K. Planning a Triad demo soon. I'll keep you posted and plan for a future demo at my house

That is hilarious about the d-box. It was really fun!!

Mario,

Loved your theater build, you have contributed a ton to the aspiring DIY'ers and for that I THANK YOU. Did you build your own screen or did your order it from Seymour? If DIY, can you point me to some tips for building your own CIH screen with Seymour AT material?
Thanks,

MAXTATE

Hi Maxtate,

Thanks so much. Glad you found the thread helpful.

I ordered my screen and frame directly from Seymour.

Hey Jeff,

I don't think it will support 4k. But I think it might provide a good interim solution until 4k is more mainstream.

Yeah - keep me posted on your speaker selection.

Do you use some type of Matrix switch to get different signals to the end destination TV locations?    How many 'inputs' could you have and how many output locations?


I have an 8x8 audio/video matrix switch. (8 inputs to 8 outputs) I double up a couple of TV locations like the outdoor popup TV that get less frequent use.

We offer larger matrix switches like 8x16 or 12x16 that typically get installed into restaurants and bars though.

Where did you buy the switch sir?

I haven't purchased one, but, Mario got his from the Cinemar web-site (albeit, he may not have ordered from the web-site, I believe he has contacts ;-):

This may sound bias coming from me but a Full Quested System in this theatre will kick ass. The Quested LT (Long Throw) will work perfectly well in this sort of design.
I just getting a AT Screen, Raise the speaker height

3 X Quested LT20 Total: $11,700.00 For all 3!
2 X Quested LT10 Total: $4,800.00 for Pair
4 X Quested LT8 Total: $4,000.00 ALL 4 SOLD!!!
3 X Quested AP1550 Amplifiers with Filter Cards Installed used as Mono Blocks for the LT20 Loudspeaker $5700.00 for all 3 Amplifiers.
2 x Quested AP750 Amplifiers $ $2450.00 for both amplifiers.
