I'll have to figure out how to do the Audyssey graph as well.

Will try and have that up by the weekend. This is just the sub graph.....looks decent doesn't it?

EDIT: Dayton Amp EQ settings: Freq: 20, Bandwidth: 0.4, Level +4.

Moody Blue by Sherwin Williams....looks awesome in most light.

Screen wall I have forgotten but it is in the thread...maybe Greys Harbor?

I like them both!

Hey,

So, I think these are the three granite slabs for me...all the same price.

Uba Tuba, Verde Peacock, Verde Butterfly.

What would you pick given the look of my basement?

I need 36 sq feet so I'm buying one slab....


All three link

http://www.acura-cl.com/forums/showthread.php?t=370981

Uba Tuba

http://www.thathomesite.com/forums/l...415263949.html


Anyways..I was at one time leaning one way...

Any suggestions? I wanted Irish Black but for my area it is $500 more...not worth the price of maybe a DIY sub!

Since you got REW up and running... When can you make it out here and run it on my system? . I've been slow to get that going; I still need a sound card for my netbook.

Jim-I was down to those as well....I'll see what the slabs look like tomorrow again!

Jason-I don't have REW neccesarily up and running yet...but I have desertdomes radioshack meter and that is our spl results with just subs...

I'll run another with the L/C/R here soon....

I could definitely help you with that now that I know how it works!


REW in the next few months! I'll be getting a preamp and maybe the behringer..or just continue to beg and borrow!

I like the Tuba.

If you decide to get a Feedback Destroyer, check eBay, plenty of good deals. I watched for a while and found an FBQ2496 for $65.

I also like the Uba Tuba out of your choices you gave. Isn't the Uba Tuba the least green out of your choices? I was just in a granite store (Panda Kitchen and Bath) yesterday and bought 55 SF of Black/Brown 3CM for a rental house. Prices were really affordable, too bad there isn't one up on Omaha.

Out of the two mentioned I like the tuba too...

I went with Baltic brown in my kitchen and thats what I'll put on my bar too....

Also look around at those places that have granite for sale and go ask about remnants(scraps). There is a place local here where my buddy got his bar out of a remnant cut to size for about $50 solid granite top.......

The tuba is the darkest which I like, but the verde maybe had more variation in it (the movement!). Anyways...having people over so I'm going to go get samples of the 2 or 3 for people to offer opinions on.

Nice call. I'll probably check ebay first...haven't shopped on there for a couple years now!

The tuba seems to be the darkest, with the green only really coming alive when the lights are on...the butterfly has that large pattern and the peacock is an interesting middle choice but maybe too much gold.

I've checked remnants but here is the deal....I could maybe get one for the bar but the kitchenette needs something from a slab...maybe I'll do a mix and match with the same type...I'll look into this! I know you can order slabs from California for 100-200 that are sized for my bar...and then pay 100 for shipping...

Guys,


Went to consolidated kitchens remnant place and found a slab of brazilian green granite that is similar to uba tuba that could go on my bar sink counter and then a slab of quartz (some black thing) that could be my bar seating area.

Price for them to do it all: $1500. WTF? Remnants. Seriously. Anyways...that was one quote.

Waiting on premiere countertops to send me the quote, stopped by there..nice people.

Went and got samples of uba tuba and verde butterfly from UGM for people to check out tonight.
Pretty sure uba tuba is going to win out. It looks nice with my carpet and bar seating.

EDIT: Got my quote from premier: $2204. I think the square feet I told them is a bit off, but still....probably $2k.

Ceramic Tile Works is next.

Did you look at granite tiles? I don't remember if that came up, but a cost saving alternative (if you don't mind the seams).

I thought of that, I'd need 24" tiles but I didn't really set up my bar seating to be able to support those..I guess it wouldn't be hard but I think I've settled on uba tuba and just gonna eat this one. I like the smooth look for a bar....we'll see what I can get the quote lowered to.

Carpetland quoting me $1400 for carpet in the area left in the basement and stairs. Thats including the heaviest pad.

Any better alternatives? Its a Shaw varietal and decent quality....

I used Carpet Land as well and have been happy with them so far. I also used their best pad and it feels very nice to walk on. Carpet Land came in at the cheapest for what we wanted. We had to cross-reference numbers since some stores like to make their own part numbers for the same stuff. I think it ran $2,500ish for my entire basement to include stairs and the stage.

I think it's already been covered but floor tiles at Lowes(granite) can be ordered in 12 or 16inch for about $10 per
Square foot in 100 ft quantities, I priced it for a backsplash. They have tuba, Baltic, or whatever common granite you want...... They are pretty flat edge so you wouldn't need a grout line just but them up......

Guess I'm rocking Carpetland...NFM is more expensive so is Kellys.

Probably going to go granite on the bar...I'm going to live down there! Tiles won't get the look I'm going for though I'll remember that for any future stuff...

I looked at NFM and Kelly's as well... Both were more expensive for the exact same stuff (even with a lesser pad than what I got with Carpet Land).

I put 90oz Shaw carpet with upgraded pad in my theater and it's held up very well. It's been 5 years now and it still doesn't mat down and it feels great in bare feet.
