Where did you guys buy the Pro-Trak? I don't see it on the Lowe's or HD Web Sites.

I bought some a couple weeks ago at Home Depot. They had 100s in stock on the shelf in the metal framing section. They come bundled in group of 10 but there will be loose ones laying there as well. Don't pay attention to the Pro-Track name, it is a basic steel framers commodity and sold under different names.

Thanks Big - one other question - (I also posted this in theSound Containment - Air Cavity - soffit. thread a few days ago) - is this now your preferred way to build soffits versus using 3/4" MDF?

MDF works, So does Drywall. I don't do drywall finishing so If I bring in someone for that task They can hit the soffit, I'm lazy and have no love for sanding MDF soffits and breathing the dust.

Big - When you are doing MDF soffits are you gluing and screwing or just attaching to the 2x2s etc. with just screws?

2x2 is glued and screwed, If I wake up and my OCD is above 8.5, I glue the MDF to the 2x2s.

Hey wru2006, I decided in the beginning of this project that I would not pay much attention to the cost because I knew that it would drive me crazy Just wondering how and why would I spend that kind of money on something that does not yield a monetary return. With that said, I did have a budget of 30k and I did exceed that limit. I do have all of my receipts and Im certain that someday I will check the raw numbers, but for now I will just enjoy and keep spending..... biggrin.gif

Big I have to ask. did you staple the fabric onto the black painted strips? this is what i assumed but looking at this pick it looks like the fabric is stapled to the wall. Was this just a few missed staples?

Thanks

I tried to hit the wood, but sometimes the angle was such that it didnt happen. I have some panels on my ceiling that were stapled just to the drywall and covered with molding not an issue.

Thansk again

When you ordered the DMD - did you order "fireproof" or just the standard fabric on the web site?

Oppo problem solved. Feels good to be able to hear my rear speakers again. They said the server board went bad somehow. They were extremely apologetic and they took care of the problem in 4 days. they paid for shipping both ways, updated my software, and gave me a courtesy call to make sure everything was alright after i hooked the system up again. Aside from making a great product, the customer service was awesome. I would definitely Go oppo again in the future.
