I haven't updated my thread in a bit as there's not much to talk about right not. It's all still under construction.

Anyways, here are some updated photos. They aren't anything to look at, really... it's all a mess.

1. My GIANT bass trap at the front (behind the screen). It's the entire top length of the front wall, 3.5 feet deep (i mean the sides of the triangle).



2. My ceiling (behind that perforated wooded panel is 4 inch of rockwool. I used the wooded panel for both acoustics purposes as they have holes in them, and also because of the looks, so my ceiling looks like a wooden ceiling).





3. Homemade Skyline panels and QRD panels





4. The room (like I said, a big mess)

CoolGeek....where abouts are you installing the Skylines and diffusers? Do you have a layout in mind? Keep the progress going. Looking good!

Thanks, The skylines on the left side of the wall and the qrds on the right where there's space as you can see below the 'platform'... it's a small space, so i placed my qrds there.

Initial Photos with the new Sony 500ES 4K projector. The screen is literally wall to wall, curved,... giving me an Imax feel.

Picture quality was awesome (much better than these photos).

Holy COW!

That is one sweet looking room!

If I had not gone the Rustic looking route I would have copied your theater for sure! That looks simply amazing. So very classy! Warm, rich, inviting.

Great Job !!!!!!

Why PM? I'm sure others would be interested in accoustics

Very, very nice!

Drool worthy for sure. Very happy for you Coolgeek. That's a lot of planning, work, and money right there and you knocked it out of the park!

Thanks RMS8.

I just looked at your own HT Bunker. WOW!!!

First of all, I was totally blown away with your MANSION of a house!! You and I officially have the same tastes in design. And I really liked what you did with your interiors, castle like, and museum like... i really love the classic looks.

Thanks Gooddoc...

Lots of Money and Work for sure. I started out not knowing anything and had to learn everything from this forum, basically. And was inspired by the many beautiful designs you can find on these forums.

As for Money... gosh, I don't even want to think about it.

Some of the theaters on here were built by people/companies that have non-disclosure contracts. I didn't want to get anyone into trouble.

DlBeck's TheSavoy have tons of information regarding acoustics. It's a great place to start.
