No, the bulk head was about 3' of painted flat charcoal. And I had the screen as high as possible, just enough to sit it on the French cleat.

It's not important. I'm sure it's close if not the same thing. I have a panel that I never used that's still in the box since I ended up needing to build an acoustically transparent screen that I may sell so that's why I was curious.

I couldn't find the thread but searching for it reminded me it was Wilsonart Designer White laminate. I had to order the 5' wide piece. This thread had a comparison with the Wilsonart, painted drywall, BOC, a cheap Da Lite and a couple other budget options. Then the poster had a Stewart screen that he was actually using. In his rankings he gave the Stewart a 10, then ranked the cheap options. He gave the Wilsonart a 9, and BOC like a 5? The painted drywall was 3 or 4 mixes if I remember correctly and those ranked low as well. Of course my projector wasn't a modern light cannon.

If I recall the Wilsonart was the same as the Parkland Plastics depending on what side of the Mississippi you lived on or where you sourced it. Mine is the one that's slightly over a 10' x 5' roll/sheet as well and the price sounds about right. If someone reading this was interested & wanted to slip me a c-note I'd even cover shipping: click me. Not to distract from the thread but maybe someone can benefit from this post.

I think it's a pretty good deal too considering what I paid. I kept it in the box in my basement for years 'just in case' but have come to the realization it's likely not going to get used by me. Hopefully someone looking for an inexpensive quality DIY project sees this because I know how hard these things were to find years ago so finding a virgin panel for sale is probably akin to someone selling a unicorn.

This theater would be absolutely perfect with an acoustic screen wall and another KEF Q900 replacing the Q600c as the center speaker. Not that it isn't awesome already. biggrin.gif

An upgrade would be more pairs of Q300's for the multiple overhead height and wall surround speakers for more surround anchor positions when object oriented surround comes to the home. Then it would be a mini Atmos-like theater!

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Mines pretty basic. DIY using curtain backing material. Been very happy with it. Cleaning it is a bit of a pain.

Here are some updated pics of my screen wall. Forgive the low res iPhone pics. Haven't been motivated enough to get out the real camera to capture the remodeled room yet.

The lights are mounted on the frame of the screen. The power supply and LED controller are mounted to the back of the screen as well. I mounted the screen about 1.5 inches further off the wall than normal to give it a floating look and feel.

I had the good fortune of catching this build thread right from the very beginning and AVTexan should be congratulated for a phenomenal job well-done and incredible determination to tackle this project almost entirely on his own.

Awesome work!!!

Hello all. I think the title says it all. I am building a dedicated theater in my new home and am looking for someone with experience in the Dallas Fort Worth area in building a false wall and stage similar to this

My room is about 19 feet by 14 feet with the screen wall on the 14 foot wide wall. I plan on going with a 2.35:1 screen between 120-130" with my viewing distance at 12 feet. I would like to also go with an acoustically transparent screen (Seymour) and would also like for the false wall to acommodate my AV equipment.

If anyone has a good lead please let me know.

Thanks!

That really isn't possible. All depends on the size, materials used, and the contracts labor costs.

I understand. If it helps, my wall is 14'4" wide x 10' tall. I would use standard materials (GOM cloth, studs, etc). I just want to know what the cost would be roughly (i.e $1-2K or $2-5K)

Perhaps someone else can take a stab at it. But without knowing if you will want electrical outlets run to that wall, special trim work, what GOM and how much you are using, and your local labor costs the range could seriously vary from $1K to $5K. I recently took bids to replace my deck. All bids included the cost of tearing down the old deck and building the new deck with Cedar wood. The quotes ranged from $5400-$9200 with all the same materials used.

I built mine myself for a few hundred dollars.
2 x 4 studs, plywood for stability, screen and black speaker cloth.
Check out my build page.
