Good to see you back. Having been done for a while now, can't say I've got much of a bug to change much in my theater either. About the only techie thing I've done recently is swap out my first bulb. Make the room feel new again.
/goes back to watch BB in the theater...
Hey Michael, great to hear from you. Yes, once it's done it's nice to just enjoy it! Your theater turned out beautifully btw. You should be very proud of it.
Thanks. Learned enough to know that I could improve upon the design should I ever need to rebuild it. let's just hope that day doesn't come any day soon. I rather enjoy using the room, more so then the time spent building it.
Absolutely amazing... thinking of doing a similar thing (with much less detail )
Anyhow, since i'm at a begining stage and wanted to move some metal beam posts in my basement since they are in the middle and want to move them 4 feet, I just wanted to know which company did you use when you moved you metal posts?
I saw in the photos that you had to dig a hole few feet and pour concrete back on top to make a pad for the new metal beam. Did you have to get a structural engeener to do this? and did you hire a company for this work?
would like to know since I gotta do the same thing
Add another "atta boy" to the list - I remember watching your build thread a while back, then I went on AVS sabbatical for a year or so, and must have missed the thrilling conclusion - it came out great, glad you're enjoying it!
I just stumbled across your thread looking at a thread about double doors. I had some of the same ideas as you in several areas, your column design is almost identical to the one i came up with for my theater. I have a few questions for you if you don't mind.
Are the fabric panels on your columns removable for access to the speakers? or would you need to un-staple the fabric to get at the speakers if you needed to?
What kind of latch system is used for your double doors? did you do anything special to seal them for sound isolation purposes?
I'm planning removable panels on the underside of my soffit held by magnets as well. Is there any thing you'd do differently for the removable panels? Do they ever have noticeable vibrations?
