Be careful with that fine surface. Please don't take it for granite.

Too funny!!

Yeah, that one slab of granite costs as much as a Classe' SSP 800!

And here I am using the darn thing as a work bench!

Problem is....I can put adhesive and screws on board in garage, but then I have to maneuver three 90 degree turns........wife ok'ed my work bench!

Pretty much done with bones of coffer ceiling cloud. As I was screwing, I noticed a tad bit of flex or maybe it was my imagination.......who knows.

On left and right side of room, the 12' 6" legs ran right over splices of channel............I knew that would happen but am happy I placed a clip on each side of slice on roof trusses. Extra planning is paying off! I know I was able to get through at least one channel of each splice every time.....and for most part impact driver felt like it went through both......hopefully!

Can't say enough good things about the Zircon 40S metal stud finder! Worked like a charm and hit every single channel with no issues. Only had to back out once due to hitting clip with 3" Grabber fine thread screws.

Tomorrow is a day set aside for staining all Knotty Alder..........in evening friend is coming over to spray lacquer.......

Friday I'll build leg for projector so I can finally finish up back soffit with crown. In addition, I'll also be ripping 5/8" AC-U plywood for verticals on inside of ceiling cloud and attach to base with 1 X 2's for fabric channels......glued and screwed.

The big head ache is over.........now the fun part! TRIM!!!!!!!!!!

Here are a few photos of base for ceiling cloud which will hide 6 speakers and acoustical treatments. One step closer to Atmos implementation!






You can see middle beam will be in middle of front row seating for wife's reading........another reason for location is middle row of ceiling speakers aim directly down to ear of first row. Middle speakers will be in rear half directly behind middle cross beam which will have two 4" can lights.......very back beam will have same two can lights.








Here is only compromise of design.............rear speaker locations are not ideal for 2nd row. Rear speakers will be located slightly forward of ear level, but will angle perfectly for 1st row which is what I really care about.










Well, MOAR! work to do.......hopefully, done in two weeks!

BTW, my diagonals were less than 1/8" off.......normally I would correct but not on this one!

Can't help myself........OCD task master.

Getting a head start on tomorrow filling any holes in Knotty Alder. First batch no filling.....this batch all 1 X 6's need at least one hole filled......some pieces need more. Will sand later tonight and get started on few smaller pieces by pre-stain and staining tonight. Getting a jump start since tomorrow lacquer is on menu.

I was in Harrah's Lake Tahoe this weekend and took a couple of shots of the ceiling. It made me think of your room. I also thought the way they added the legs was interesting.

Thanks for the photos.............I agree, legs are quite interesting.

Honestly, my first thought was......... I hope avtexan has his wallet secured........looking up in a gambling establishment is a likely target for pick-pockets. If you were in Naples doing same.........not only would your wallet be gone, but your pants too!

There was so many good ideas I passed up with this ceiling............but in the end, I like vanilla ice cream. Ceiling has purpose.......hide speakers and be part of acoustic plan. I'm hoping it looks good too..............I had a hard time giving up height in room since I really like 10' ceiling.........oh well, that ship has sailed.

Cool! My grandfather met my grandmother in Naples during WWII. Her maiden name was Palma. Maybe we are long lost cousins.

I want to bring this back up for a moment, because I just got back from the theater tonight, having seen Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, in ATMOS (RPX). This sound mix was quite good, but still not really maximizing ATMOS (or the overhead speakers, I mean). There were a few cases where specific sound effects were localized overhead, and a lot of cases where the overhead sounds just seemed like ambiance. Honestly, I think this is as it should be. Gimmicks are distracting, and the sound should feel natural. So in a way, that's maximizing the effect, without overusing the effects (how's that for incomprehensible double-talk?).

And a question for the general movie sound fan - Is it some kind of new thing recently to pan dialog from center? I know Gravity got a lot of attention for moving dialog off-screen in a few scenes, and given the context it was very effective. There were two or three places where dialog was panned left or right - but not off the screen - in this Planet of the Apes mix. Is that something that they only do in ATMOS mixes, or has this become common in normal Dolby and DTS mixes?

I would presume your Grandmother is Italian?

Well, if your Grandmother was born in either England or Germany.......maybe.

My Mother's brother was killed in 1943, trying to cross the Garigliano River........he was a member of Queen's Royal Regiment, but at time most outfits were patch work. The guy survived Dunkirk and was even a prisoner of war for 6 weeks in North Africa.......Germans patched him up only to be thrown back into Italy.

What's ironic, my Dad's Uncle ( Grandfather's brother) who was German is buried at Monte Casino........only 26 miles or so from my Mother's brother. I visit both grave sites when I'm in Italy.......British Military cemetery is immaculate........not so much for my Great Uncle' gravesite.

BTW, talk about a family feud! Family members firing at each other on opposite sides of battle line!

I must be out of my mind as your comments are comprehensible.......and spot on!

My only Atmos experience watching Godzilla? Bitter taste from my experience with Atmos has more to do with subject material than what codec.

Gravity would have been great to see in Atmos since sound pans gave you taste of what space would be like.......I personally liked off screen dialogue in Gravity......added to experience. As far as other movies moving dialogue across screen.......haven't seen much of that. BTW, I almost drove to Vancouver, Washington to watch "Planet of the apes", but was recommended OMSI IMAX in Portland would be a better experience for Atmos than Cinetopia at Vancouver Mall.

I'm not into gimicky audio.....lifelike is more to my tastes. Lone Survivor would have been the real deal in Atmos.......all that metal flying over head.

Atmos has so much potential.........ability to add to movie experience. Can you guess? I'm all in......

Found something to do this morning.......up at 5 AM and finished cove molding around columns. No more unsightly fabric channel. Wife walked in at 7:30 AM and stated, "Looks good, like a picture frame........see aren't you glad you listen to me?". My response, "Yes honey, you have great eye!"







Had to do a little trim on cove for some columns due to electrical outlets. Kerfed and use coping saw......sanded and just stained, no sealer.




Just waiting for lacquer to have time to set before handling. Hopefully, tomorrow I'll be hanging trim for ceiling cloud.

Getting ready to start framing single leg to soffit...........once done, I can finish rear soffit face and figure out transition to ceiling coffer cloud. Two crowns meeting at two different levels. Will be interesting.........

As you see base, it's not pretty but it's what I have to deal with..........not much weight anyhow.

Yes!



Front and back running perpendicular to side wall has channel running centered so 3" fine thread and wood screw to either side with Douglas Fir 1 X 6. Longer sides run perpendicular to channels so side by side screws into channel and between channels two 2-1/2" wood screws. Only issue is longer sides are smack dab in middle of splices!

Followup........

Here are a few photos JPA to answer your question:



This photo is front leg parallel to front screen. Black screws in middle are 3" Grabber fine thead screws..........closer to edge are 2-1/2 cabinet screws. I'd prefer to use Spax brand, but had so many screws unused from fabric channels I just worked with surplus.




This is corner of front leg transitioning to side wall leg. Douglas Fir 1 X 6 is perpendicular to channel......note black head screws are 3" Grabber FT. Still have to fill in a few more screws, but for now it will hold due to being glued and screwed.



Last picture is screw pattern for rear leg. Channel goes smack dab down middle of 1 X 6...........tried to keep screws at least 1-1/2" from edge due to using 2" 16 gauge finish nails for trim. Call it a safety margin.

In addition, this area area has 4-5 extra clips due to projector and anticipated coffer ceiling structure. Should be ok with additional clips and channels at 16OC. Sure glad I used 384 clips!

I altered my plan by a 8".......did this so I would be able to have channel run down middle of Douglas Fir 1 X 6. Front leg starts 4 feet in front of soffit so 5 ft in front of speakers. First. Reflections should be close to 6.5 ft..........I will be using 4" Owens Corning 703 with 3-4 inch gap to ceiling which turns into broadband absorber. When speakers go into ceiling cloud, these treatments will be used as a quasi-baffle.......and to eliminate SBIR.

Hopefully, this was a better post to answer your question.......I was at mill getting MOAR wood.......
