Only 200 pounds? That would actually be fun after moving the DTS-10's in and out of my basement.

Between the Triax's and the 215's I'll bet your house is starting to tilt from all the weight. Not that it matters really, because I'm sure your HT will destroy the foundation anyway. But it will be fun while it lasts!

2 one inch layers of linacoustic, or the like, with a layer of 4 mil ply sandwiched in between the two layers. Floor to ceiling, wall to wall, and the same out to 4 feet on either side wall as well...

Here are the tiles I'm using - my bad I thought I had sent a link via text:

http://www.certainteed.com/products/...erforma/314184

If you click on "find local distributors" you should be able to find some place local that carries them. Hopefully one of these days mine will come in stock and I can pick them up.

Spent a LOT of time this weekend getting the room ready for some guests next weekend. I had been waiting nearly a month for the ceiling tiles to come in and they finally arrived yesterday afternoon. The preparation over the past few weeks was a ton of work but the end result was well worth it. Thanks to @Archaea for the idea and help. Here is what went down this past extended weekend:

-Move projector back 2' to allow for greater adjustment flexibility (been wanting to do this since I went AT

-Swap FP14K clone out for 2 X Peavey IPR7500s to drive the 8 X SID4 subwoofers, running at 4 ohm stereo

-Built out floor to ceilling (minus floor trim) frames for side and back treatments. Paint and assembled frames.

Example: 1 of 2 frames for back wall


-Stuffed frames with Rockwool and covered with black AT cloth. This step was NOT easy considering how large the panels were and how flimsy the rockwool is.

-Mounted frames to wall using L-brackets and aluminum cleats. Cover entire back wall with black AT fabric.

In progress pic of back wall:


-Cut and installed Certainteed Theater black tiles (mostly 1" over listening area but some 5/8" thick behind screen)


-Added additional batts of insulation (R38) around front perimeter of room

-Reinstall all newly painted light trims

-Reinstall painted HVAC diffuser and connect line

-Install sound deadening material on all light boxes and diffuser to avoid any rattling up there. For anyone looking, this stuff is an awesome alternative to dynamat. Very very effective and inexpensive:

http://www.lowes.com/pd_154017-81326...ductId=1018733

-Reconnect and restack front stage

-Install screen again and do quick and dirty adjustments on projector

WOW!! Enormous improvement in contrast and black levels. The crappy iphone pics don't do this justice, but it's still fun to try. All projector settings were reset and will be redone.

The after

I've still got to clean up all my tools, trash, mess and do the following in the next day or two:

-Hang remaining 2 side treatments using cleats
-Recalibrate all sound / Audyssey / distances. I discovered my trims had to be raised a hair after all the deadening
-Touch up spots of paint on walls and remove rest of masking tape
-Take better pictures using digital camera
-Play with projector settings
-Watch a movie!!

In the next few weeks I'm going to build out a panel for the carpet to cover 6' out from the screen or so. My man @popalock hooked me up with some velvet (months ago!) that will be perfect for such a task. I'm thinking something about 10-12' wide and 5-6' deep wrapped in this deep velvet will do the trick. That will pretty much make everything perfect for me as far as light control even though I can't see the floor when watching from the 2nd row on the riser anyway.

Dude, hook us up with a close up of one of the ceiling panels in some good light if you have one or two left over! The website has no stock photo and I am still curious how close it is to the ones I got from ats, which I LOVE. Looks incredible man, you are now full on HT status in that area. It'll reinvigorate you for some movie watching to say the least. How has the sound changed with the front and side wall stuff? Perhaps we should just chat some later this evening haha.

Thanks! It was a hard weekend and will probably be a few hard nights to get everything cleaned up but we should be good to go for this weekend.

I got you - I have about 20+ panels left over actually and I'll try to get some decent pictures of those maybe outside as well as better pictures of the room. The best description of them is like an OC703 type panel with what appears to be a very fine black "felt" on one side that serves as a very effective light absorbing trap. Price wise they are extremely reasonable and WAY cheaper than any dedicated acoustics place would sell such panels.

Even my wife said just looking at the room is a DRASTIC difference in the theater "feel." With the lights out it's freaking DARK in there man. I need to use my iphone light to see anything haha. The room definitely is more dead now although I have not had any time to take a hard listen or do any calibration at all just yet. I did a quick snap/clap test around the room and the amount of slap echo I was hearing in some places is non-existent now. Stay tuned for this evening - with any luck after cleaning up and some cooperation from the little dude we can at least watch a streamed show or something haha. I will give you a shout to discuss further.

As far as I'm concerned this is one of the "must do" for anyone on the fence - right up there with the AT screen.

Nicely done! That black ceiling looks great. That plus all the bats above should put you in good shape. When you get around to a demo, ask the mrs to see if it's quieter upstairs.

The tiles look nice though. Surprised you didn't just find 4x8' sheets of the stuff and CNC them yourself[emoji16]

I have a set of Clearwave Dynamics and 2 JBL W15GTI in 4"cu cubes that would require help in and out of the house LOL

Thanks!

Unfortunately even 1-2' of fiberglass won't do much to stop / sound control lower frequencies. Maybe some of the upper end/treble will be attenuated, but there is only so much that can be done to quiet down 8 18" drivers slamming. Stopping a 15-20hz wave would take several feet of concrete.

Awesome! I thought my using Triple Eagle black microvelvet on ceiling and around was going nuts.
The reflected light off my floor has always been nagging me...and you're going to cover your front floor area! Freakin' First-Class, sir!

It's something else to look at your first post in this thread and then this latest.

Yea or even just since my first trip up there! Whoa! I really need to make a thread with all of my changes and such. Right now they are sitting on like 3 different SD cards, dropbox, here, harddrives on two different PC's etc. Consolidation is a must for me right now....

LOOKS EXCELLENT!

I'm glad you are liking the change! I can't believe you placed 78 tiles in just a few hours! (including cuttouts for lights HVAC vents, etc).

Talk about efficient...

I'm looking forward to checking out your space next time I come out to PA - which is likely going to be mid August. When the details are ironed out on our trip, I'll see when/if you are avail for a quick drop in.
