Still working to get the amp and Feedback Destroyer configurations worked out. I did want to capture something I posted elsewhere in my thread.

There was a question in another thread about popcorn recipes. We tried a lot of different combinations of oils, popcorn and pre-made popcorn packs before we settled on one that we really liked.

So here's our recipe for popcorn:

CJ's Favorite Popcorn

1 1/2 Tablespoons Coconut oil
1 1/4 cup popcorn
1/2 - 3/4 tablespoon Flavacol

That's all there is to it. Here are the ingredients that we find work best:

Coconut Oil


Available from Amazon for about $21 for a three pack using Subscribe and Save. Here's a link.


Popcorn


Available at WalMart for around $4.50. Available at other outlets as well.


Flavacol


Available on Amazon for about $11 for a two pack. Here's a link. We purchased a two pack 3 years ago and have 1/4 of the second package left.


Here's a photo of the Great Northern per-packaged popcorn that I purchased. We hated it. The oil tasted oily, the popcorn was small, and it didn't taste as good as the stuff we made. I've tried it a few times and we still feel the same way. YMMV.


Good luck!

I was able to replace the lamp in my projector yesterday and we watched a movie last night. Though we limped along with the sub, the picture was top-notch.

Here's a photo of the bulb that was replaced:


I ordered it from ProVantage and it showed up 2 days later (I used regular shipping). The bulb came with a replacement filter. Installation was rather straightforward, and I had it replaced within about 20 minutes or so. I took this as an opportunity to set up the projector's image again...that took quite a bit longer.

The picture is really bright again. I was really surprised by the brightness!

If you are considering inwalls ... (IMO) Triad should be on your short list.

Add me to the list. We are taking ownership of our new construction in Ashburn on march 27th. Already have been chatting with Big about my build. I have a 20'x12' dedicated space I'm going to be working with. New place is in Stonegate (new neighborhood off smith switch behind the ashbun ice house)

Cool to see other NoVA people here!

Hello

Do we have an outcome on the subwoofer?

Thanks for documenting your build in such detail, I am going to contract out my proposed retirement build since 3 years might just be a third of the years left to me, and anyway I have neither your patiece or skill.

But you kind people who have posted so much means that I now have enough knowledge to keep everyone from designer to painter honest, so they serve more than a DIY motivational purpose.

I read all of your pictures, and the biggest part of your text.

The most confusing part was when a poster said, about half way through, that he had read to there in 2.5 hours.I suppose he must have read all of the pictures and none of the text......


Thanks again for generously sharing your time in posting all of this.

Anthony
