On vacation but still "working". I'm on the beach as we speak but can't shake thinking about the finer details of the build. Thanks Big.

See post 485


So does the screen mount in front of or behind the framing shown in post 485? Is that the White Oaks build?

The screen mounts on the front surface of the wall frame with z clips on the top edge. Yes that is white oak which was an extreme variation of the minimal screen wall concept.

Big, you mentioned you use linacoustic on the front wall. Others have used Owens Corning 703/Roxul Comfortboard or Roxul Safe 'n Sound.

Why do you prefer linacoustic? Do you know how that would compare with the OC703?

If anyone else used a different solution, please let me know.

You may want to review the acoustic treatment thread at the top of the forum to see the flavor of the month for screen walls. It used to be two layers of linacoustic with a layer of poly in between. Things have changed a bit. For myself, I will be using Roxul S&S in between my front studs, then a layer of linacoustic in front. Then I will be layering a wall of speaker cloth in front of that to stop any fibers from floating around. But again, check the acoustic thread unless one of the heavy hitters answers next and fast tracks you some more info.

Here is my conribution. I used 1" (actually 3/4") FJ pine board. I glued and screwed them together. The middlempiece on the top is 107" wide. It feels really really solid when Itry to shake it or pull down. I am not using any support, we will see if it will sag over time.

I'm having trouble envisioning this myself. I understand the goalposts are screwed into the ceiling and floor for support with the cross member between and supported with a center brace screwed into the ceiling. I understand the screen rests on the goalposts about half way. But is there more "framing" on the sides that are screwed into the goal posts and the side walls and then the panels tensioned on top? After looking at post 485, I think I'm more confused. I thought the panels were tensioned into place pressing up against each other, not attached to more framing behind?

I really love the clean minimalistic look this provides, I'm just not sure I have the know how to do it. lol

you've got the goal posts and then I run a 2x2 on the side walls. That is usually enough to hold everything in place unless you have a really wide screen then some mid span supports of the panels above and below the screen might be required.
