Well some more progress has been made and I have some updates and questions.
First off we removed the original lally column. The room is really open now. I'll post up some pics of that and the material later.
Second I've decided to go with a 163" cinescope screen. I'm between a Panny 8000 and a JVC X55 or 4810. I was all decided on going with the JVC for obvious reasons until I realized the JVC's are known for poor gaming lag. That's a problem. I need something capable of lighting up the screen and with a low input lag. I game online most of the time so it's pretty important. If anyone has any other pj suggestions I'd be happy to hear them.
I took Tedd's advice and contacted Dennis Erskine and he pretty much told me my room will look and sound like crap so he didn't want anything to do with it. I wanted optimum speaker locations and treatments since I was able to move the poles and they wouldn't be mounted on them, but that's not gonna happen with him. I was extremely disappointed in my contact and dealings with him. Anyway I still need that info. I realize my screen size and seating distance isn't "ideal" but that's how I like to watch movies and game. When it's come to the speakers though I would like them positioned and angled as best as possible. So does anyone know a site where I can plug in the room dimensions myself and get the desired locations/angle??
Also does anyone know a good way to mount the surrounds from the ceiling without affecting my sound isolation? The JBL's weigh 19lbs and I'll have DD, GG, and IB1 clips on the ceiling.
Btw I've talking to Ted White(soundproofingcompany) a lot lately to make sure everything is going to be done right and he's a great guy to talk to and deal with. Always willing and ready to help and give advice and very courteous and polite. I wish all companies talked to customers the way he does. So thank you Ted.
I'll be ordering almost all of the building supplies Saturday and work should begin in no more then two weeks. Everything will be done professionally so I'll have no part in the building whatsoever. That's a good thing.
