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.

Cheers,

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.
