I'm not too familiar with quest panels, but as far as the linacoustics, I think they sound great.

Booga24, the bass was sick and the subs performed very well. The bass was not overwhelming, it was a clean, even and deep sound.

Good luck buying everything you need at Lowes OR Home Depot.

I can't tell you how many times I've had to go to both to get ALL the parts for HVAC and plumbing projects. And I'm talking things as simple as 3/4" slip joint Ts and 1/2" 90 degree elbows. It was crazy. The latest is that I wanted oak basboards for around the bar and even though I got all of the oak panels at HD, I had to go to Lowes for the baseboard.

I have a complete cost breakdown for my build (links to spreadsheets in both Excel and pdf formats) about half way down the 1st post of my thread. There is also a nice percentage breakdown of Jautor's build in his thread.

Unfortunately, I did not log my every purchase along the way of this build. I do have 97% of my receipts and I will post a total cost of my build. Can't promise that it will be to the penny, but I will get as close as I can.

Accurate to within a few hundred bucks is probably good.

I'm SO going to go this route with the fabric panels on the wall. Plus i was able to get all the Lincoustic needed. wall fabric used im assuming is GOM correct?
Question, Does it have to be a AT fabric for the walls? If so, is there a substitute for GOM? possibly something for Joanns? Thanks

congrats on a beautiful theater NYGiantsFan23

We used a cheaper fabric that is actually easier to work with by the novice. Acousticmac DMD. it is discussed earlier in the thread.

Thanks a lot Linkseo... I think we can make it, but we need Tuck and Pierre-Paul to be healthy. We could also use another receiver on standby because Nix seems to get hurt toward the end of the season.

Beutiful build NYGiants and Big. I was looking through and did not see if there was a link yet about the screen that you used. I have decided on the center stage XD. However it sounds like you are very happy with the screen material you got. (sorry don't remember they guys screen name) Did he ever post a link for the screen material so I could compare the two. Or do you believe they are the same? Just curious, thanks for the information.

Seymour is a quality screen that I have used for other projects.

Snickers1 a local AVS brother decided that there was room for one more screen company in the field and jumped into it with both feet. He designed an aluminum frame profile and had a master die made for the extruder. He then sourced all the necessary parts to make a screen and first built one for his theater. The minimum order quantities for the materials is not insignificant and now Snickers1's garage is a warehouse. NYGF23 was the first client. The fabric is similar with a slightly flatter weave than the XD. The frame corner brackets were a breeze compared to other frames I've assembled. Snickers1 offers an AVS discount and since he is local an additional local cash and carry price. Shipping a screen is pricey!

Here is a little bit more info:

I would definitely contact falcon screens and get a sample - I am in the same debate and have a sample of both and have to say the weave of the falcon seems to be much smoother and less noticeable with roughly the same gain. I am just starting to do my compare but it's definitely in the running and great competition for seymour XD

I honestly can't tell the difference between the two other than having different names and different prices. The screen is awesome and the quality is top notch. The price was reasonable and the owner made my decision very easy after being present for a demonstration of his work.

A few questions regarding acoustic treatments:

1. Can you summarize the acoustic treatment program? Looks like it consists of 1" of Linacoustic behind all panels, 2" of Linacoustic on the front wall and corner bass traps behind the screen wall. Anything else?

2. Often we see 4-6" of floor to ceiling treatment on the rear wall. In a design like this where the bottom of the wall is not treated, would it have been beneficial to make the upper panels a little thicker or does it really only work if the entire wall is treated?

3. Since you have had a chance to use the room for a while, do you feel there is enough absorption with treatments being limited to just the area above the chair rail? Since the side walls of many rooms are prescribed floor to ceiling treatments towards the front of the room and treatments up to ear height towards the back of the room, I'm wondering if there would be any benefit/noticeable difference if fabric panels were also added to the trimmed out areas below the chair rail. They could even be wrapped in a fabric color that matches the surrounding wainscot/drywall to maintain the existing look. Would this yield any noticeable results?

Just curious in case I blatantly steal this design for Theater 2.0.

Spaceman:

1) The front wall is also a membrane absorber, The soffit over the screen is open on the back and stuffed with fluffy, The corners behind the screen are stuffed. The riser is a bass trap. The columns have large areas open to the room and are stuffed with fluffy.

2) We didn't have any room to go thicker on the back wall and still keep the back bar, portions have scrim to reflect high frequencies.

3) dunno. lower panels ahead of the listening position were ruled out by the nature of the aesthetic design. We did mount the speakers pretty high.
