I really like the colour of the speaker grill cloth in the SMX/ Sandmanx/ Ruben theater build but I searched the build thread and can't find a reference to it.

Anyone know what cloth/ colour it was?

Thanks!!

Steve

Ruben, hasn't been around here for a long time. The best you may come up with is to look at the 20 or so pictures in his build thread and make a guess, I notice in one picture they look black, and in another a dark brown.

Bottom line, his original designs were black, and in the right lighting they are black.



IMHO The photos where they look brown are a result of the bright halogens in close proximity reflecting off the fabric



One thing to look at is the right hand chair in the back row. The chairs are black and red. The light reflections totally wash out the black.

Thanks Big! It's so obvious when you point it out.
I think brown speaker column cloth might suit my build better, even though these ones are black.

While I'm at it, thanks for the many threads/ posts you have put up on avs, its where I got a lot of my inspiration from. I just finished pulling fiber for an 18ft x 12ft star ceiling in my build so will soon be able to see the full effect.

My build is documented here, and I've taken the liberty of copying one of your speaker column designs, hope you don't mind! eek.gif

Copying one of my designs?



Can't wait to see the finished version, looks like an improvement on the design. That is my Easter Island design.

It's a very close copy alright, there very few column designs that appeal to me, and i liked your design and Ronnie Jacksons the best, apart from Rubens columns which are still a class apart but way too time consuming to build for me. Ronnies columns would have been ideal, but im putting in Ken Kreisel trifx surrounds so i needed the sides left open. it's a lot safer to know how it's going to look before you build it. Not very adventurous I know but I'm playing it safe on this room build, I used up all my design ideas on the house extension that left built the space for the cinema room.

First column fitted using your method to make the center speaker cover, the method you used worked a treat so thanks for posting it.

The columns look fantastic in the room, really suit the fabric and give the room a very polished and less 'bat cave' look
