I needed to route the air exhaust to the front since I changed projectors and the heat comes from the front so I routed the tubes to the front and installed a thermal fan so that when it gets hot it automatically starts up.
Here is the back where it used to exhaust. I also had it tied into my whole room exhaust so it would only work when I had my room circulating which is not all the time which was an issue.
And here is the makeshift setup. It doesnt need to be pretty because you dont see it unless you look up into the hush box
Then to finish the hush box. I bought glass to fully enclose it however it is just too small for my comfort so I am going to try to do it without the glass and see if there is any issue with heat or sound. I'm thinking not on either.
Here it is assembled and prepped for paint
Painted other than touchups and the insides. I wanted red on the sides because of the low clearance and it will match the ribs as you will see in the pics coming up. I am hoping the red will help so people dont hit their heads. I also routed the corners on the front so if they do its not an ultra sharp end.
Then I installed some OC703 to deaden the sound since I didnt fully enclose it. Hopefully this will help. I needed to leave the area that is open free from OC703 because of the 235 lens and slide. I also painted it so that it will reduce in reflections and also when you view in it from the room. I may use some cloth to finish it out nicer but I doubt it.
Then here it is mounted. I will still do some trim work as it doesnt sit perfectly flat to the ceiling although no one will even notice. I also will do the same at the front of the stage where the red meets the ceiling.
I did a quick sound test and it performed pretty well. There is room for more OC703 as I did not do it completely so I may add that if I can still here it. When seated the hush box blends right into the ceiling and you cant tell its there. It is very nice and long over due.
I would really like some help on the issues posted in the thread a few posts up so please take some time and help me out please. Thanks in advance. I hope everyones memorial day was fantastic. too
