Peter, absolutely amazing room! Your attention to detail really shows and makes this room one of a kind.

I have a question on your columns... correct me if I am wrong. It appears you attached a minimalist frame to the wall/door, filled the frame with black rockwool(?), and then put a fabric covered frame over each column?

Any other acoustic treatments on columns? Are the column frames attached the same as your panels, with velcro? Any issues with the columns and velcro coming loose on the doors after opening and closing?

Thanks so much!

Hi,

Thanks for your kind comments.

Most of the columns have speakers in them, so the inner frames main task is to support the speakers. Some sections of the columns are filled with black polyester insulation.

The outer fabric frames are un-insulated and are attached with just velcro. I've had no problems with them at all, even the ones on the door.

Peter have you had any issues with the fabric being pushed in on the columns?

......you know, by idiot friends and the like?

One reason why I wire backed mine.....I did kick one of them during construction and it bounced back nicely....PITA to build though

Hi Peter,

Not yet !

If the boys were younger I'd be more concerned.

Removing staples and re-stretching fabric wouldn't be a big deal should it ever happen.

Hello Peter. In looking through your build, I didn't see which colors you ended up using for the soffits, ceiling baffle, and ceiling. Do you recall your colors? Just an absolutely perfect theater! (Actually if you lived close to me that would be perfect!).

Best
George

Hi George,

The soffits and baffle are Woodland Grey - see here.

The ceiling between them is black.

Thanks! I scoured the posts but missed that one. My build is starting shortly and yours has been great inspiration.

Very nice room. I picked up some details I am thinking about incorporating into my own 2.0 build.
Some similarities in size, but yours have a higher ceiling though.

Interesting that my links to Photobucket are still working.

I guess it's only a matter of time until I get cut off !!

Yes it is a mystery about which links get broken and which remain. When this started it was only some of my pictures but it spread.

Hi Big,

My problems are insignificant compared to yours. This is the only thread I will bother to rebuild after PB nukes me ! My photo linking in other threads is minimal.

I like the colors for your theater - what brand and color fabric did you use?

The fabric was sourced locally from RIM Fabrics in Melbourne. It's called Trilogy One

The wall panels are Ocean, the column covers are Cobalt and the screen surround is Oxide.

Peter: As I have stated more than once, your theater has been one of my favorites, if not my favorite, for a very long time. It is the best combination of form and function.

Each of my 4 theaters has been function first and whatever that ended up looking like was the form, this one being no exception A friend of mine who was building another theater in a second home, at my recommendation, used your theater as a model for form. Much smaller room and not my choice of fabric color, but still nice.

There was no way, without spending way too much money, I would be able to transform my room to look anything like yours. My diffusors were huge and I had lots of them (and had no intention of replacing them), and my room was a good bit smaller. And in order to hide my left and right speakers, they would need to be replaced with on-wall versions, and then major construction to get them moved behind a screen. But I really liked the uniformity of texture in your room, as well as the different colored columns so was at least able to get some of that accomplished. I have covered all wall surfaces and columns with Guilford of Main fabric So while my "new" room looks nothing like yours, I wanted you to know you were at least the inspiration for the project. And the best part of this was that my wife REALLY likes the new look (on ceiling speakers to be replaced by in ceiling speakers next month).

Hi Chuck,

Thanks again for such kind words. I'm certainly not an interior designer and I think there was a fair amount of luck in how my room turned out.

Your new room looks sensational ! Really cool and elegant.

Thanks Big. I should have done this ages ago for those in the US.

Here's the other two colours -

So your flat portion of the ceiling is just painted? No fabric on it?

Correct. The soffits (bulkheads) around the perimeter and the high ceiling between them and the slatted ceiling are just painted.

Checking with my door supplier if he can deliver the broad hinges now. Makes hanging acoustics plates on the door easier.
