*Mounted one of the CC4000 and it sure looks pretty smile.gif

Working on mounting the anamorphic lens to the projector tonight. Hope to mount Thursday night or this weekend.

Move in this Friday and then we can get the 7 HT chairs in there.

Almost there....

You sure work fast!!

I have completed the 'carcass' of the riser so far.. hahaha...

DL,

What sort of cloth materials you use under the stage and the sides? I presume there are speakers there (subs under the stage). Do we need speaker cloth for that? Or, just the regular cloth that you use to wrap the walls of the HT with?

Also, I noticed you used 'blue' cloth.. do they reflect a lot of light when watching movies?

Nope, sorry CoolGeek the projector hasn't even been within 15 miles of the theater yet. Soon it will be...very soon.

Got the mounting plate, lens sled and lens mounted to the projector tonight....that's some serious weight!

Interesting read. I didn't even think about using diffusers. I was going to place 2 inch rockwool 80 on all walls n call it a day. It might be over absorbent.

Would you be willing to share the exact plan of your room and what u did?

Cool,
Remember your room is a concrete bunker and requires lots of absorbent material for that very reason. smile.gif If you recall when I turned you on to JapanDaves build thread a bunker room.
Japandaves is a Denise Erskine design, and as I'm sure you noticed there is no mention of diffusers, just something to consider. wink.gif I myself use diffusers in my room along with acoustical treatment such as ultra touch, roxul and common insulation at various locations. You also may want to ask JapanDave about this subject with regard to his plan. My room is more like
dlbecks room. My profile has photos.

dlbecks your build thread is fantastic! I am a big fan of your setup and design.tongue.gif

I wouldn't do that!!! You'll end up with a very dead sounding room that is uncomfortable to be in, will sound boomy due to all the high frequencies being absorbed yet none of the lows and you'll get very little sense of spaciousness.

I don't know where you are in your build but if you have concrete walls and floor you should probably build an internal sheetrock walled room within it and maybe even a wooden floor to provide low to mid bass absorption.

Hmm.. more confused now.. will take a closer look at DL's acoustics and then see what i can do. Today meeting up with my architect and ask his opinion on design look/feel

eek.gif An unbelievable room in 6 months - your making the rest of us look bad- .. I've got my friends and family convinced it can't be done in under 3 years, 2 maybe.... if "Everybody" helps hang drywall...cool.gif

Seeing that wall of speakers gave me goose bumps and a little motivation ..

Wanted to follow up on our conversations regarding the carpet between the riser and stage area...how did the carpet guys work around laying directly on top of the serenity mat without the ply substrate?

Again, fantastic room Dave !!

Thanks Brad. The carpet layer didn't like it but he drilled holes in the concrete to attach the tack strip. Not sure if this has any acoustic disadvantages but can only be a tiny smidgen if it does.

Update:

Moved into the house yesterday and can spend the next two years unpacking. Got all the theater chairs setup, hung the marquee light posters, installed all the amps in the rack and linked all my Insteon lights.

Lots more to do before next weekend! Picture later.

At least you'll have awesome company for the drive. Uh, actually I'll let you answer that when we get back. smile.gif. Looking forward to seeing and hearing an awesome system and room. The fact that the 215s are making an appearance is icing on the cake.

Update:

*Worked on whole house Insteon integration for the last couple days. I love Indigo as the software to control everything - very easy to learn and use.
*Put all the home theater chairs into place and powered them up
*And most importantly, with the help of AVS friend, IgnoringMyWife, we got the projector installed and the first image on the screens. Thank God he came over because he caught a couple things that I wouldn't have even considered and mounting with the anamorphic lens made it a little trickier than normal. We popped the movie Frozen in (the only Bluray I had handy) and quickly realized it was a wide screen format so I set the Sony for vertical stretch and moved the a-lens into place and bingo....a nice, big Ultra-Wide image....great stuff!

Thanks again to IgnoringMyWife for coming over to help and make two road trips with me for supplies smile.gif

The Sony HW55ES looks amazing right out of the box and it's much quieter than I was expecting. I can certainly hear it but sitting in a sound decoupled theater with a very low noise floor where you can hear pretty much anything and all you hear is a faint fan noise. I'm glad I went with the Sony over the Epson 6030 for that reason alone.

It's been a week since pictures...can't believe it. So 5 or 6 more days until I have sound - Saturday can't get here soon enough. At least I can watch silent movies rolleyes.gif

Really amazing work. I've never seen such a large-scale theater with such detail come together so quick. Kudos to you and all involved in the project.

So....just curious....did your wife have any comment on the project?

Are those pictures taken with a flash on ?

I am considering a Blue/Navy/Purple option for my fabric panels and theme color in my own theater and I am struggling with painted wood and trim (black probably) vs stained wood with clear gloss. I'd love to see an accurate pictures of the color.

No flash on those pics. Check out post #708...you can see the difference with and without a flash. Those without a flash look really close to reality except the chairs and carpet color look much closer in person.
