Time for an update...finally.
It's been awhile since I've been able to sit down and focus on the thread, with finalizing the move from Alaska and let alone having to renovate the rental property in Wasilla in December (brr....) and to put it on the market, and finally enjoying Christmas and the new year.
I've done some additional planning and sketching on plain ol' paper (Sketchup coming soon). With all the great builds out here, I have gone back and reviewed my initial design several times and have made changes to incorporate some of these great build ideas into the Re-Deux. I hope i can build as nice as half of these out here, such as the "Better Late Than Never" build by
or Cranky's Cavern by
and of course the outstanding acoustic treatment work done by
in "The Learning Curve".
All of these builds are truly inspirational, and I hope I can even come close to replicating the success that they have had in those.
Below are some of the changes, quite honestly, based on the above mentioned builds.
- Inspired by the final outcome of the builds mentioned, and the discussion by
, I like the size/sound staging that will be achieved with a short throw room that Re-Deux is, along with the seating locations for 2 rows, without feeling like sitting in the front row at the local theater. Using what
posted, this is what I hope to mimic, with some changes to the sofit/marquee.
- Trying to replicate what
did in his previous build, and his inspiration from the Cinemar build, i hope this works out.
Acoustic Treatments -
When it comes time, i hope to mimic
acoustic treatments inspired by @audiovideoholic
on the ceiling and around the room.
Wish me luck, as I am ramping up into full swing.
