We supplied it with his screen , we used to supply one 60" heavy duty bracket but in this install was cut it into two equal pieces, we now ship all screens with two 18" heavy duty cleats.
We buy them in bulk but i think similar ones can be purchased at Home Depot.

A little about the Kit selected for the surrounds.

They pack a lot of muscle in a small package, Here is the Kit Pic from DIYSoundGroup.com



http://www.diysoundgroup.com/wavegui...lpha8-kit.html (play the video)

some shots of the assembly process of the speaker boxes. The basic box is 1/2 inch Baltic Birch cut on a CNC machine with very close tolerances.









The boxes are all glued, time to look at the crossovers.

First I got everything organized, inventoried and labeled



Then I started to figure out how to lay these things out for assembly




Hey Jeff - The link to this set doesn't work anymore (Discontinued Model?) Just wondered if you know what would be the current equivalent or if you have built any of the newer kits lately?

The designer wasn't sure why they aren't on the site when I Emailed him. He thought they might reappear, you should contact Eric owner of the site for updated info.

Coming late to the party here but gotta say... Holy moses I love this theater. Not only does it look GREAT finished but its the 'chrome motor parts' that really make this build special. BIG's attention to detail and design are amazing. With similar dimensions in my build, you have given me a TON of inspiration. I love the classic looks with the moulding and trim. Very nice. THANK YOU for sharing you your build with us NYGIANTSFAN23!

Hi Jeff, do you have any close up pictures of the finished projector cable port and outlet? How do you finish the gray pipe coming through the drywall? Is it just left as is? I tried looking at the finished pictures but, they are to far away or hidden by the beam.

Midlite makes single gang and double, pick your size depending on how big a hole you need to hide and just screw it to the drywall with drywall screws.

Jumping in here very late, but hopefully can get this answered! I just ordered a 140" Falcon screen and need to determine how to finish off the surround. My screen wall is broadly similar to the one in your project.

From the photos, it looks that the screen is mounted snug against the soffit - is that correct? The surround looks like black velvet (Royalty 3?) - how is that attached? Did you just build a large U-shaped frame and wrap the fabric around it so that it sits flush with the screen? If so, how is it attached and stabilized - it looked from your photos that you just have a header and two uprights and then nothing along the bottom of the screen? Or something else? Do the panels sit flush with the screen or slightly behind?

For this project, yes the screen was snug to soffit less 1/2 inch or so to lift it over the French cleats. Fabric is stretched around frames made off wall then positioned to the sides and below the screen. The frames are slightly less thick than the screen frame. But I have done it the other way as well.

Looks like they changed the link for the speaker kits - I believe this is the same one that you built?

that is new maybe indicating it is coming back, but there is no price shown so I don't think you can order yet.

I think there is only one "line" on the site now. The more expensive price point seems to be gone. It is all Fusion now it appears.

I was able to find the brand but not the actual colors. I'm limited to an iPad and a slow connection. Frustrating.

Thanks!

I think I've decided to switch my color scheme after seeing this - wow.

Are the fabric sound treatment panels and the wall color relatively the same? It looks like the majority of the wall is covered in the panels. I want to make sure I'm not in love with the fabric color instead of the actual paint.

I went to Sherwin Williams today and picked up sample pints of the Turkish Coffee and Jersey Cream. On the wall the Turkish Coffee looks identical to the pics of the theater. Good, got that out of the way. The Jersey Cream however does not look exactly like the pics here... on my wall it looks more like Eggnog than the white shown in the photos. Does the white looks more creamy (eggnoggy) in real life than how they're coming through in the photos? ... you're positive it's Sherwin Wiliams "Jersey Cream"?

I was just repeating what NYGF23 wrote. I can tell you that it does not look white in person, I would have protested the the use of white. You can go darker than eggnog if you want if it looks right.

"Eggnog" doesn't look bad per se, it matches well with the Turkish Coffee. You mentioned you would have protested white - were you ok with his choice of Jersey Cream once it went up on the wall? Or did it end up being brighter than you would have preferred with the lights off and projector going? My wife loves the color combo of this theater - she wants a place to read and enjoy the room other than just movies so painting too dark/black is a no go.

I think it works fine, I would have liked to see some swatches of the next shade darker. Just a FYI he used an inspirational photo to pick the colors.

the secret is out: http://www.houzz.com/photos/1029694/...eater-dc-metro

I'm almost convinced that he did NOT use Sherwin Williams Jersey Cream for the lower half. If I had to guess he picked it out early on and changed his mind. Notice the yellow samples painted on the wall - that definitely looks like the Jersey Cream I picked up today. It looks like Eggnog.




Fast forward to the finished build pics - the lower half is not Eggnoggy at all, it's off-white.



He mentions using "Signature Series" earlier in this thread but Sherwin Williams does not make a Signature Series, Valspar does. Did he change to Valspar for the wainscot, molding and columns? Or is the lighting just messing with me?


Hopefully NYGiantsfan can chime in and solve the mystery for me. I feel like I'm playing paint detective here
