Looking for some pics of how people have decided how to put up their acoustic panels in their home theaters. How far apart did they space them? How did they incorporate them into their wall decor? Stuff like that. Thanks.

Did you make those? If not, what brand? How thick are they? I like the 'column' look.

Maybe one day I'll be able to get mine as basic as Greg's!!

I built mine using lumber ripped down on a table saw and filled with OC703 2". My placements were based on first reflection points, and were made to various sizes and shapes to kinda break up the 'big blocky' look (combination of 15, 21, and 27" widths) and to provide a fair amount of overall absorption:





Everything is held in place by french cleats also ripped down from 2x4 lumber, and secured on the opposite ends using three small metal brackets out of sight lines (I have some further pics/info in my construction thread if anyone is interested). Black for the ceiling was a given, but I had enough left over cloth, I opted to go black against the dark green walls as well, and it seemed to visually work out okay for me and had good WAF.

Great pics, quick question though. Do you use any kind of masking system for different aspect ratio movies? I assume that your screen is 16:9, but what about for 2.35:1 or 2.40:1 movies?

OC703 on the walls. Panels made out of pine and covered with GOM. Velcro (and friction) used to hold them in place.

For myself, no, I haven't incorporated any masking system. I had looked at a DIY solution during the build, but after watching different material I found it was more of a 'nice to have' versus a 'need to have'. I watch a fair amount of 16x9 material (Xbox and cable TV), and find that even some of the movies out are are 1.78 (Planet Earth etc). I don't mind the letterboxing all that much, and with the lights out, it is hardly noticeable to me.

Are your walls fabric or painted drywall?

The paint is called Adriatico by Solver Paints..May not be available in the US..You would probably have to find an equivalent..
