Just for fun I made a quick list of what I've done since the April GTG - it's actually pretty crazy to see it on paper:

L/C/R yorkville front stage (Center is only new speaker here though)
Crown XLS2000 for mains
False wall build
AT screen build
Riser - build, stuff, and carpet
Front wall treatments x 4
New AV cabinet for main room (build and paint)
Rough out drywall and construct auxillary AV cabinet in bathroom - build, frame, trim, paint
Swap clone amp for Peavey 7500s x 2
Swap minidsp 2x4 for 10x10
Add oppo 93
Rearrange subs and rewire (re-run wires) for 4 discrete channels
Add Roku media player
Finish/Paint/Assemble new side surrounds (DIY SEOS)
Build 2nd relay box for 2nd amp
Move rear surrounds back for new seating with new wiring

Holy. Crap. eek.gif

Edit:

Add to upstairs setup:
-Swap definitive BP30s for DIY Sentinels
-build 2 X SI 18s
-Swap Yamaha receiver for Onkyo 818
-Rewire entire cabinet with new wall plates and wiring for sub amp in 2nd room

That's just an insane amount of work! eek.gif It's like a completely different setup at this point.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

1) Are you using the DSP on the Peavey 7500? How is it implemented? Is there software or is it all done on the little front panel LCD? Compare the Peavey to the Crown XLS-5000 you had/have?
2)The Roku is a really excellent gadget.

Yep, sold that awhile back even before I got the Peaveys. I sold the XLS this past weekend as well.

The DSP version of the 7500 has not been shipping yet. I use the MiniDSP 10x10 now which has some really nice functionality though. The peavey appears to be significantly more powerful in 2 ohm stereo than the Crown as/is and weighs 15 lbs. It is also quite a bit more efficient in being able to extract some really serious power out of a 20A line. It's also more power than I can use right now actually, but it's nice to have some reserves. In short - I'm impressed with it so far! I spent nearly two hours cranking them hard this past weekend and never felt the case get much above room temperature and surely never saw any clip lights. They will dish out more power than my current subs can handle since I'm running one amp to each 4 subs which gives me 1500-1700RMS per driver.

I'd love to see how they would do with your Caps! Too bad I don't still have mine around. frown.gif

And yes, the Roku is an amazing machine. So much content from such a little box. I'll admit I bought it mainly for spotify but I have been using many of the other apps lately like HBO Go. smile.gif

Jim - It really is very different since you guys have been over in April. It was good I made that list to realize how much time I've spent in the past 3 months and helps put things in perspective.

If I remember correctly that site has always said the same for that model. I haven't heard of any of the pro audio guys that had hands on one and they are usually first as part of the "test" market, same way we found out about the 7500s suddenly shipping.

If anything the amp to wait for would be the Crest Prolite 7.5 version of this amp. It won't be drastically different from the IPR2, but it's rumored to have slightly beefier power supply and capacitance. Not sure when they will start shipping consistently, but there are already some of those circulating around the pro audio guys. Also not certain on price for the Crest siblings either. For my usage the IPRs provide plenty of power, that's for certain. We will have to wait and see in terms of reliability, but I can tell you they come with a 5 year warranty. smile.gif

BTW - It's nice to hear from you man. Haven't seen you around these parts lately. smile.gif

Dangit rilla, you made me go down to the theater last night and start re-arranging everything trying to figure out how I can accomplish some near-field subs. It ain't gonna be easy....

Glad I could provide some motivation. biggrin.gif

Since you've got to build new boxes anyway, what about a new riser with 4 down firing 18s integrated? I don't think you could get any more tactile than that. biggrin.gif

I'm a lucky man indeed. I almost went a full 2 weeks without doing anything but this weekend I made all my cuts for the additional 2 SI boxes for the living room. Honestly I'm leaving the theater as is for a bit, just trying to enjoy it for now. smile.gif

More pics to come, adding some nice details to these new enclosures. smile.gif

Ok, I have been convinced that I need to start an actual build thread for the progression of my theater...Why did you guys choose this section as opposed to the HT design and construction area?

Yes, yes you do!!

When I started this thread it was intended to be a multi-purpose AV room with a few nice pieces of equipment. Had I known it would be transformed into a full blown theater with risers and AT screen, I would have posted in the dedicated theater section - as you should. tongue.gif

The wife and I had been contemplating for the past year or so in installing some type of shed in the yard for additional storage. Since my DIY interest has grown wild in the last year or so, we figured since we're getting serious about this project why not make it a combination workshop/storage type area. In typical Gorilla fashion, the scope of the project quickly went from reasonable to what some would consider excessive. We placed a deposit for the builder last Saturday. I'm looking at a 5 week or so lead time, but meanwhile here is a sneak peek at the specs for now for those interested - pics to follow in a few weeks.

-Exterior size: 32L x 12W x 10H
-7' side walls with roof pitched to 10' for overhead storage
-Vinyl siding and window trim, matched to the house
-5 x 24" X 32" double pane windows with shutters to match the house
-6'8" steel reinforced and insulated double doors on one end toward the house, single door in middle (matching), both with 9-lite windows
-Skylight/window above the single door
-Gable overhangs
-Dormers
-Ridge vented for insulation / HVAC
-4x4 pressure treated frame, reinforced floors with 10" on center floor joists (built to handle rail cars from trains)
-Built in 12' wide workbench on the far end away from the double doors

Future plans include full insulation, electric, propane heating system, a 'loft' for overhead storage', and a 5x10 CNC table with all the gadgets. I'll be wiring the electric including a 100A subpanel with 3 x 20A 120V lines and 1 X 30A 240 line for the CNC.

Should be a very nice upgrade from my tiny working area in the basement now. The site preparation will begin next Tuesday. Can't wait! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

No doubt about that. I'm thinking a deep extending SEOS build matched with a HK receiver I have laying around should get me started. I'll work on this after I figure out the electrical situation in there. cool.gif

Electrical... Better plan on the safe side.

You know, just in case. 200a panel maybe?

So I've been planning to add an additional 200A service to the house anyway. My current 200A panel is completely maxed out. I'm thinking I'll dedicate 100A of that to the shed which would give me 2 x 20A 120V dedicated circuits (2 sides of tools with dust collection) as well as a 20-30A 240V line for CNC or other heavy tool. I could probably get away with another 20A breaker just for the audio as well as there is no way I'm using anywhere near 100A at once.

Yeah, I figured this was a "necessity" for both of us to keep our sanity. Even the sales guy (owner) called me out on this becoming a "man cave" while I was ordering, LOL.

In typical Gorilla fashion, the scope of the project quickly went from reasonable to what some would consider excessive. We placed a deposit for the builder last Saturday. I'm looking at a 5 week or so lead time, but meanwhile here is a sneak peek at the specs for now for those interested - pics to follow in a few weeks.

-Exterior size: 32L x 12W x 10H
-7' side walls with roof pitched to 10' for overhead storage
-Vinyl siding and window trim, matched to the house
-5 x 24" X 32" double pane windows with shutters to match the house
-6'8" steel reinforced and insulated double doors on one end toward the house, single door in middle (matching), both with 9-lite windows
-Skylight/window above the single door
-Gable overhangs
-Dormers
-Ridge vented for insulation / HVAC
-4x4 pressure treated frame, reinforced floors with 10" on center floor joists (built to handle rail cars from trains)
-Built in 12' wide workbench on the far end away from the double doors

Future plans include full insulation, electric, propane heating system, a 'loft' for overhead storage', and a 5x10 CNC table with all the gadgets. I'll be wiring the electric including a 100A subpanel with 3 x 20A 120V lines and 1 X 30A 240 line for the CNC.

Should be a very nice upgrade from my tiny working area in the basement now. The site preparation will begin next Tuesday. Can't wait! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

 

This is how internet-direct companies start...a spec'd out shed, a CNC machine, and a whole lot of DIY experience. Do It Yourself (DIY) becomes Do It For You  (DIFY), which then becomes.......Incorporated (Inc.) biggrin.gif I'll keep an eye out for Gorilla branded subs, speakers, and screens. wink.gif

I could see that happening. biggrin.gif I've got a "mini" CNC at home now to start learning the command and CAM/CAD software. It's been challenging so far but very fun!
