I keep trying to upload the pics but maybe it doesn't like my computer or something.

I liked Brad (pimp my garage) style of getting his fabric to easily roll off, so I had a couple pallets and a broomstick laying around..

Best nail/stapler/compressor combo ever for $99.



Used premium white 1x2" board instead of ripping OSB....they already come sanded and are straighter than me trying to cut some....



My first attempt--a small skylight window in the rear of the room...



To go around the plug-ins, I just stapled some small fabric pieces around each edge, then stretched the fabric across the whole front and made small cuts to expose the prewrapped holes. Worked out well...



I probably ended up making the holes a little large for the outlets/pre-run wire locations. I'll probably take some fabric to the wall behind the outlets in these spots.




More to come.

looks good Greg. I'm glad the insulation is coming to use

There are some box extenders that you could use if you want to to get the box flush with the fabric http://www.amazon.com/Carlon-PVC-Ele.../dp/B000H5ZVY8

Anders-

Thanks for the tip. I'm going to cut pieces of fabric and 3M77 them to the wall surrounding the boxes-then put the panels back in place to see how it looks.

I think I'll have some OC703 left over too... since I'm not doing bass traps at the moment.

Looks like a million bucks compared to the old version.

Only took 2 days of neglecting my family and 2 fingers sacrificed to the nail gun.

I'm working down the list of projectors I'm interested in...... (wanting to spend around 2-2.5k)

Sony VWPRO1
InFocus SP8602
Vivitek H5080
BenQ W6000
Epson 8700UB
JVC HD250
JVC RS40
Sony HW20


Thoughts?

Using a Carada Criterion 118" 16:9, Throwing from 13-15ft, light controlled.

Sports/Movies/HDTV...prefer a DLP...I don't own a plasma TV anymore but the image those had were awesome...want that only on the large scale a projector gives you...

If I get away from wanting a DLP first and foremost, I will probably have to throw it back on there.

I'm really looking for the InFocus or Vivitek....My room will require a projector that can have the rear of the room with the lights on while still having a great image (sports/games) and also throw an amazing image when utilized just for theater....

Through a few other opinions, I seem to be down to InFocus/Vivitek/BenQ.

The bottom 4 on there are a few alternatives....

(I really liked my old Optoma 3 chip DLP....)

Lookin good Greg!

I would think that your projector decisions will be heavily steered by what works in your room also. I know you had some restrictions regarding throw distance and lens offset with your current proj. Once you have your screen done and projector mount in place you don't want to change all that if you don't need to.

Thanks!

My current projector mount is ghetto-Greg fabricated. It won't be there once I get my legit projector in this fall..... so mounting is movable....

The screen however....is now where it is. No moving that after those panels!

We will save that for ~10 years down the road when I get to do 2.0.

Then we will do HP and AT.

10 years? I laugh LOUDLY at that statement as I never even finished 1.0 before starting 2.0. Good luck with your timeline

Yeah, you are probably right. I just jump from hobby to hobby too much, and I doubt we are moving from this current location for some time.

But you never know.

I think I am throwing out the Vivitek. If I stay DLP, I'm looking at the BenQ or the Infocus.

Might be down to the BenQ or start looking at all projectors again since the InFocus may be hard to find since they are dc'd.

Finished the bar area with the glass insert this weekend, and got the shower door in finally so the rear of the room is complete.







Now to do the suede/velvet sidewall curtains and find a new projector! Or used...who wants to sell?

What do you guys think?


Build out 2-dual opposed MFW-15 boxes with desertdome and have 4-MFW 15drivers and 2-CHT18 drivers in my basement? Or buy a CHT 18.2 to match and have a total of 4-CHT18 drivers?

Choices, choices.

Your choice may already be made - the MFW-15 drivers are almost all gone I believe.

Yeah, I hate when you have water splashing onto the paint. Ours looked weird going one tile higher since these were the big guys. Works where it was at.

But totally agree, if you are not using 12" or similar sized tiles, higher the better.

Thanks Nick!


Got a side wall TV mounted....use for doing workouts (Might start the Insanity one), secondary football games this fall, and to manage my HTPC so I can quit turning on the projector all of the time.

Will probably get a 36-40" slim profile one this fall after I find my BenQ6000....any TV suggestions?







Time to find some curtain materials for the side walls and find that BenQ6000 on sale somewhere!

Just placed an order for the BenQ W6000. Need something that is 1080p and DLP and think this will work well down there.

Almost done buying stuff....for a while.

I need to decide on what fabric to use on my screen wall...have a bunch of extra Commando Cloth, buts its too heavy I think, and I might want something a little prettier if its front and center. Maybe GoM, maybe Dazian CCC...hmm...
