Yes I'll be building a muffler for the flex pipe in the soffit as well as installing about 6 led can lights around the theater. I figure 6 should be plenty since I'll also have a sconce on each of the 4 columns. I figure cutting a hole will create a weak spot which is why I'll be stuffing the soffit with insulation. That should help a little...or at least I hope

I'd like to start the riser next Thursday depending on if my drywall gets finished. Until then, time to sit back and relax from the theater with a few margaritas with this fine lady

Looks like it's gonna be a nice theater!

That's a hell of a set-up for a 65 gallon tank! Your water quality must be pristine. Are you planning to put hard corals in it eventually?

I'd like to do hard corals eventually, but I'm still an amateur in the world of saltwater with tons more to learn. Really want to get a blue starfish, but the tank needs to be more established for that guy, so I'll be getting a Rose Bubbletip anemone for the clowns next

Made huge progress yesterday. Before my little guy woke up for his first day in 3rd grade, I found myself at Home Depot at 6:30 a.m. gathering more supplies to go to work on this riser.

I started by laying down 3 rows of the acoustic rubber mat and taping them together with black duct tape

Views: 372
Size:  99.8 KB

Got the riser all framed with 2x10's as the outer base and 2x8's as the center studs. Once I was finished, I lifted the side closest to the screen onto a piece of PVC, then lifted the back end and slid the whole platform into place.

I cut many strips from the roofing felt, folded them to make the riser level with 0 squeaks or wobbles anywhere
Name:  IMG_2070.JPG
Views: 378
Size:  85.1 KB

Framing all finished. The steps will be 2' deep X 37.5" wide which will fit 2 seats between perfectly with 2" to spare on each side. The step lights and front row seat outlet is all wired and ready for insulation

I did 2 layers of fiberglass in each cavity.

First layer of 1/2" OSB is in place

Although this appears to be a gap, it's actually just the strip of black duct tape connecting 2 rows of the acoustic mat

Today I woke up and was able to finish the riser before work.

I used up every last drop of the Green Glue on the steps and the riser that I could. Just barely had enough...now I have to explain to the wife why we need to go buy a new spatula as I literally had to scrape the inside of the bucket, the lid and even had to take the orange nozzle off the gun and dig out what couldn't be squeezed out

Last layer of 1/2" OSB is in place. I used 4 L brackets just to help secure the riser a little better. Although I don't see any shifting with the weight of the riser along with the 3 chairs, but it doesn't hurt to take the extra precaution. They were mounted where the columns will go so they'll eventually be hidden.

Wow - this is looking really nice. You work FAST! The room is really starting to look like a theater! Don't worry about the gap - 1/2 of my riser is on shims.

What's next?

Next I'll be framing for the soffit going around the theater. I still need to get the recessed lights, but really limited on room inside the soffit which is why I'm still strongly considering these... https://www.ledwaves.com/pages/pr15-...roduct_details

Do it. My contractor was just telling me about these exact low profile LED soffit lights yesterday and said had he known about them it would have saved us a ton of space up there. It gets crowded fast trying to cram wires and ducts and everything inside.

Those are cool, may have to use them and the are dimable. If you used them in the regular ceiling, would the backer boxes have to be as deep?

@mpjmeyer , where did you get the acoustical rubber mat and did you glue it down? Are you going to put OSB in the front area to the stage?

Great progress as well.

Thank you for the compliment. I purchased the acoustic mat online from Home Depot because shipping was free to my nearest store.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/TechnoFlo...00HD/300870285

I actually just layed it down, didn't glue it since it sort of grips to my concrete floor along with the weight of the riser holding it in place.

When I build the stage, I'll be laying the rest of the acoustic mat down, frame the stage, fill with sand and use more OSB for the top

Step lights installed. Lowes didn't have the bulbs I was looking for which is fine because come to find out, the bulbs that came with these lights are dimmable.

After owning the Silverado for a few years with multiple problems, it came time to trade up for the Pro 4X titan. But before I finalized the deal, went to Home Depot to make a haul so I didn't mess up the purty bed in the new truck.

I built 2 HVAC boxes for the supply and installed them onto the MDF to run the 4" insulated flex pipe. I need to decide how far I want the soffit to come off the front wall. Since I'll have a false wall to host the screen and hide speakers, I'm thinking 40" will be suffice

Looking Good @mpjmeyer . So is the your supply or return you put in? Are you closing it in with double outside walls to act as a duct muffler?

The soffit holds the supply vents. The return is located towards the front of the theater closer to the floor. I did not build a double wall for the supply boxes but I do plan on installing an acoustic rubber inside them to help absorb noise

It may not be your job, but perhaps it's your opportunity.

Are you stacking the mat to get additional thickness? This doesn't look thick enough to me to rest the speakers and everything on. I need to pick something up for behind the screen wall but I'm not sure exactly what to buy (without breaking the bank).

These actually don't look that bad. They have to be the only ones sold for less than $20 anywhere! I'm not crazy about the face plate and I wish they were LED bulbs but I'll learn to like it. I just ordered 4 and will obviously be painting them black when they arrive.

Your theater is coming along nicely - really clever with the pass-thru HVAC box. You will be done in no time at this rate!!

We have lights!! I went with Lithonia Ultra Thin recessed lights due to the amount of space I have in the soffit. 7 4" lights going around the theater and 3 3" lights for in front of the screen

I installed and wired 6 of the 7 recessed lights yesterday in the soffit to make sure I liked the positioning of them which I'm grateful I did this. The lights were configured with 5 going around the soffit where the riser is, then the other 2 were spaced further towards the stage leaving about an 8' gap....did not look right. I ended up cutting that piece of soffit out and drilling a new hole above where the Grafik Eye will be instead of on the other side of the entrance door making it look much better. It's finally starting to look like a theater, hopefully I will have the soffit completely finished on Thursday with the last soffit light and stage lights installed. Next step will be the columns and stage.

In this picture, the light furthest to the left above the light switch box is the new location of the light. It originally was about 4' further to the left.
