With all the wonderful advice that I received from you guys I did what you told me to do. I made the panels and wrapped them with the velvet and it came out great! Here is a pic of how it turned out.

If so, than that is way easier than expected. Maybe I can fill each panal with some sound dampening material to help accoustically?? Is that a good idea or scratch that?


It's so awesome when the light bulb moment goes off, isn't it? wink.gif

Here are shots of velvet stapled directly to the drywall. The wall is 12' wide and the upper edge is 1/4 birch ply I had leftover.with fabric stapled to the back and then brad nailed to the wall. The velvet was then stapled on the sides and where the screen would hide it. Second strip was done the same way and stapled where the base trim would hide it and around the outlets for my powered speakers.

Pain Infliction - I am assuming that your name refers to the pain that my favorite two players that are my AVS name inflicted on the then Houston Oilers?

Your screen wall turned out great and I am interested in doing the same. What type and what size wood did you use for your strips? I am not a carpenter and the only biscuits I know of I eat. So how did you connect your wood pieces together? I hope you get this message and respond. It will be an interesting season to "really" see if culture beats scheme. (and talent) I look forward to your response.

Sorry I just saw this. Hahaha, that's funny! Yea, I am curious to see if Chip is really a genius or if he is crazy. We shall see soon!

I used furring strips to make my panels. The 1" thick furring strips and I glued them together with PL Premium. It worked out great actually. The PL Premium is some really solid stuff and I make subwoofer boxes out of it, so it will not come apart for sure. Then I just got some velvet and stapled the crap out of it all the way around and it was done. Easy peasy!

Thanks Pain Infliction. Every time I think I have budget my last dime, another "minor" expense comes up but I think the black light absorbing wall is worth it! Your build has turned out great and it encourages me.

I am with you on Chip. Either he is a genius revolutionizing coaching in the NFL or he is a better organized Steve Spurrier who will eventually go back to college for total control. Only time will tell. I still miss those old hard hitting Buddy Ryan defenses though!

I remember watching one of Buddy's Coach's shows that went like this (I forget exactly who the player-guest was):

Interviewer: Coach, it's been said that you're not close to your players. What's this guy's name?
Buddy: Hey, You!
Interviewer: What's his last name?
Buddy: Number 47.

Buddy rarely remembered names so he called them by their number - except if you were real good. He knew Reggie, Seth, Wes, Andre, Jerome, and even Golic. Man i loved that team!!!
