I don't think either looks bad, but the inconsistency between the two is the only thing which would drive me a bit crazy. Of course this only *might* be noticed if all the lights are on and you are looking specifically at the finish. If it were me, I'd get new ingredients, scuff sand and repaint the second one.

Nice to see you in the home stretch, Fred!

I think they look great!! Sure, perhaps they differ a bit side-by-side, but in opposite corners of the room...

Plus, if someone even notices this, you thank them for picking up on that -- you worked very hard to mimic the variation from your wall boards...

I like it move on. When you are "done" you can circle back for a upgrade.

Do you have your sub locations picked out ?

Thanks guys. I'm okay with them. And I realize now that I have given you only a partial view to the situation - not to change anything - Just that I see that you all thought the "problem" was with one of the subs. They're the same, and they're both okay. I'll let them fly. I am going to lay some flat-out-flat poly on them and call them done. (yay!)

Based on the size limitation of my space, I had to decide early on that if I wanted seating for 6 (which I do) then I would have to limit the subs to the corners. So that's what I've got: four subs (Dayton Audio UM15-22 in 3cuft sealed boxes) in four corners. Not a lot of placement flexibility, but one of the best (statistically) arrangements for uniformity out of the gate. In theory, the stage subs could come off the stage out into the room by a few feet, if that proved significantly advantageous. I'd prefer to leave them behind the screen wall.

Not sure what the over all dimensions for the cabinet are but I thought I would mention that the bracing (from what I can see through the opening) seams to be on the light side.

You're not wrong, per se, but there wasn't much else to do. The cab is about 18" wide and 16" deep - 3 cuft approx. The top half is pretty thoroughly braced, IMO, and it's built from 3/4" plywood with a double front. I feel okay about it. The driver motor takes up almost all the available space in the bottom.

My "speaker stand" becomes a Helmholtz Resonator (I hope). The modeled performance should be adequate, and represents a series of compromises, as all things. The design to which we built was the green line.





The insulation is R30.



It's hung with hanging strap (plumbers strap). From inside (first image) and outside (second image)





Some of the batts had to be cut to width, but it fit pretty well.


The we cut the front down to size, marked the holes, and started drilling. The new 1" forstner was key. Tear out from the back was minimal in 1/2" MDF IMO.



We cut some diagonal bracing and screwed it in. Then caulk.


Here it is as it stands now. I suppose it deserves some black paint.

Not yet, and there won't be until I also have my front wall treatment up. I would like to be able to measure with only one treatment up, but there have just been too many moving pieces to get that done. Work now - measure later.

Back to working on the proscenium. It's not easy going; and if you look too closely you find lots of little problems. Don't look too closely and it's very pleasing to me. I'm sure I will be happy with it when it is done.

Looks great to me.. On another note I think this may be a first. I don't ever recall somebody doing deep button upholstery on the forum.
