One of the best things I did was the OSB / PW layer. It did make hanging columns, wainscot, firing strips, etc so much easier. I spoke with Ted about the trade offs and he said they were small. I did go up to 3/4" OSB and PW to close the gap some.

I used PW in the ceiling for its ability to hold screws better. Not only will PW hold screws better I also felt if I ever had an unknown moisture issue upstairs the OSB could be a problem. It was a cost savings to not use PW on the walls.

I went back and forth on to soundproof or not early in the process. We don't have kids so why do it? I am so glad that I did. We have since had guest with kids stay with us and were able to watch movies a shade under reference with the kids down the hall without waking them.

The big thing is it makes the room dead quiet. I have had guest stand by the door and open and close it and be amazed what a difference it makes.

It is one of things that requires attention to ALL of the details. If you are going to do it do it right. I had so much help from Ted White. He is awesome to work with.

We are here to help as well.

I must tell you Ron, the first time and only time I have ever heard my wife say we needed better speakers is after hearing your theater! I was shocked! Of course I said "sure no problem!" She was the one limiting me in the theater in the first place and when I was going to buy the Triad golds, she told me she didn't want me to spend that much money on speakers after I have spent a lot on everything else. I thought this was funny and pretty cool at the same time.

After hearing almost every speaker under the sun, Triad Golds for specific price point are at the top of heap. Granted, reference at around 14-15 ft is about limit, but who listens to those levels for extended periods of time anyway? Much better sounding speaker at reasonable levels than similarly priced JTR 212's.......and other more expensive offerings.

At my listening levels, I must admit Triad Gold Monitors with Silver Monitors for surrounds is the direction I wished I had gone........and I may change out with Atmos implementation.

Triad's are exception speakers for the money......

Agreed. Maybe you and Pain Infliction could do so business when the time comes.

I am making some headway on the automation project. I have the templates done and working for the Alarm panel and the HVAC equipment. The steepness of the learnig curve is starting to flatten out a bit and I am making better progress. Next up is lighting.


For the alarm panel you select the source from the bottom, select the mode on the left and enter the code. I put some misc info in the top right. The red boxes in the window only show if something is tripped, they are normally invisible. The 2 buttons on the bottom show the garage door status and you can open / close them by pushing the buttons.





For the HVAC equipment you select the source from the bottom, select the unit to control on the left and then move the slide to the temp you want and hit set.
The buttons in the center control the mode and fan settings. It is not actually 88 degrees upstairs, that's the rack temp before I changed the label.

Thanks! I am having fun putting them together. It is a little intimidating starting with a blank slate for each template but that's the fun part.

I have some ideas for lighting but we will see how that shakes out. Ideas that don't work out are certainly easier to fix than in the HT build.

Thanks

The screen shots are from my PC but when finished they will be displayed on (4) 15" Borg inwall touchscreens.

My lighting is pretty much done.


Here is the layout.



The set up is to choose the source at the bottom, choose the area on the left and then choose your scene.

The up and down arrows work after a scene is selected and the scene selected is shown between them. They move the loads up and down by about 20%.

The fans are laid out on the right.

Next up.....Whole House Audio
