Quick update on some small progress. Columns are assembled but still need to router out speaker openings and then attach them to the walls. Light tray is up and LED rope light installed. Other than caulking the bottom seam of the light tray and touching up the nail holes, the ceiling will be done.




Also have my order in for speakers with Erich @ DIY Sound Group. Going with the 1099's for LCR. Volt 8's for the surrounds. Ordered the woofers from Parts Express - 2/Dayton Audio UM18-22 18" Ultimax DVC Subwoofer 2 ohms Per Coil. Fun, fun!

In your first post you have a nice sketch of the angles for seating. What software did you use to create those?

I swear there was a 61st post already with some additional pictures of your latest lighting. Did you delete that post, or was it otherwise somehow deleted, or am I going crazy?

Let the countdown begin before you receive your 1099s! Did you order two or three?

I figured this one out. When I posted right now it said you had two pages and 60 posts. When I posted it said that my post was 62 (even though post #61 was not displaying anywhere). I had contacted AVS yesterday about now being able to get to the third page of your thread (i.e. post 61), and I think it had something to do with the fact that your thread title has the number "2" in it. I refreshed the page after my post and all of the sudden I could see your post #61 again. As a programmer I see these types of issues on occasion and usually recognize them as bugs in the software Now, back to the fun stuff.

Ordered 3 for the front and 4 Volt-8 for the surrounds. Based that off of Erich recommendation and on the amount of room I had to work with in the columns.

Everything is starting to take shape. Speakers are ordered, through DIY Sound Group, thank you @Erich H . Talked with @snickers1 and the Falcon screen is shipping tomorrow. Projector is in. The UH48 lens & sled is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday. Currently scheduled to have the acoustic design the first of September. Just waiting for the Crown amps to arrive and we will be in business. All I will need is to schedule @TMcG for little help setting things up and it will be showtime!


Sounds easy enough, right? Still a lot of work to be done before any movie rolls across the screen. Closer to the end than the beginning!!

With the help of @Spaceman , I have the final plans of the room as it was built. They turned out fairly close to the original study with the exception of adding a stage and shorting up the riser by 6" to 6' from 6'6".

As well as the elevation plan



I also move the AV rack from the back wall of the theater to the a closet across the hall. I believed I mentioned that in a previous post.

So I did not like how I framed the stage stairs so I did a little modification. I added 2 boards to the front to bring out the top platform of the stage 4 1/2' and the bottom step I brought it out 3"




Also have to screen frame up and now to tackle the screen panels

I'm workin' on it . It has been a little slow lately, a lot slower than I would like it to be. I hoping that I will be done before the end of the year. If things go well, maybe for Nov when my birthday rolls around.

I've been sitting on my finished crossovers for more than a month now. I'm finding it hard to find time to finish the cabinets. They're built, but I need to paint... sand... paint....sand.... etc. Being patient is not in my nature, so it's been hard to have to wait this long.

Sorry I missed your call tonight. My wife's out of town so I'm stuck chasing my 3-year old son around. Hopefully you figured your question out, but if not let me know.

What type of enclosure did you settle on? Ported or sealed? Are you jumping on the Marty bandwagon?

Is this saying that in hind-sight, your view is the 'effort' of DIY isn't worth the savings vs Flat Packs?

I am thinking of doing it the DIY make the cabinet myself approach, in part, due to wanting a 'full size' marty :-) sub ported enclosure, but the Stonehenge Flat Packs from DIYSoundGroup do look 'easier'...

My thought, never having done one, is the hard part if the priming/ painting/ sanding/painting, etc... and I need to do that either way. Of course, I typically under-assess work required, so, maybe the cutting & making the cabinet is much more than I think, so, hearing feedback is always good.

To me the flat packs were less of a headache compared to buying, cutting & figuring out the bracing. The time it would take me to do all that, I could buy the flat pack and be done and do something productive with all that time.

It really is a personal decision. From my own experience not only would I do it again, but I AM going to do it again with my sub and surround builds. The cabinets took me longer than I thought they would. The wood was heavy and unruly to move around (I had ordered full 4x8 panels... Make sure to have yours cut if you buy the MDF from a big box store. Based on the amount of time it took me I would say there is more "value" in buying the flat packs. All you have to do is grab the pre-cut wood and assemble.

My primary reason for building the other speakers is the fact that I am still putting money aside for my eventual theater build, so building them from scratch gives me something to do in the meantime. I have enjoyed the process, so nothing lost there.

My advice is that if you just want to get the box done then buy the flat pack. If there is any doubt, buy the flat packs. Don't make the decision based on the cost of the flat pack. The price is worth it. If you have the time and want to cut and build the cabinet box then go for it. Here's the good news... there's a lot of pride that will come from the build no matter what route you choose.

I thought I would post a few pics to actually prove I have been working on the room and haven't finished it and disappeared into the movie abyss.
The LCR are almost complete


And the mock up of the panel layout, which I have some manufactured ones on order and will be starting the DIY panels shortly


Also have started recessing the surround boxes that will house the Volt 10's behind the columns

Started stuffing the subs with poly-fill tonight; how does this look for stuffing? Need more, less or does it look just right

Loving the rebuild more and more with each new post.
I'm no sub expert but I believe for sealed you can't go wrong with "full and fluffy", which is what you appear to have done.

What's left on the to-do list for the 1099s? I see that you already have the crossovers already mounted.

Hey thanks DavidK442.
By chance do you own a Olds 442? Is that where the 442 in you screen name derives from?

stuff with poly and secure the drivers. I have one more to paint this weekend but hopefully the other 2 will be producing sound all weekend.
I hooked up one of the Volt10's last night that I will be using for the surrounds, sounded good for a driver sitting in a hollow box. I still need to fill holes, sand and paint them. That's on the list for this weekend as well

Made more progress this weekend. Volt 10's are assembled and painted.

The columns were also on the list to get started. Speaker grills are cut out and ready for sealing and painting.
