I think we're getting to the point where I can no longer hide behind "almost done", and we'll be scheduling our "Pay Back GTG" for some time late spring...

As a townhouse resident I have significant space (and volume) restrictions. My main speakers are to big and heavy to move, but have some diy coaxial surrounds speakers that can travel.

I definitely am jealous of all the GTG's held in my pre-military home, Kansas City.

Source for Owens Corning 705 (Reuse?) Acoustic Material

First post, ...ever - although not about GTG. As I am finally beginning my theater, looking for value sources and found one.

I wanted to make our community aware of a local source of OC705 material via Craigslist that is normally (surprisingly for me) pricey. Search terms are insulation, Middleburg. No connection w/ seller, satisfied buyer.

He is selling Owens Corning Acoustical/Insulation Rigid Fiberglass Board. This product is unfaced (plain), asserted to be OC705, but do not think he knows. Panels are 3'10"W x 10'L x 1"thick, $10/board ~40 sqft. While he is located in Middleburg, he delivered (unwieldy size) to my home (Fairfax) on weekend - very accommodating. He has 120 boards remaining.

Material is similar to OC703 w/r to sound absorption, but denser. Ref: Bobgolds absorption coefficients website http://www.bobgolds.com/AbsorptionCoefficients.htm. NB: Website value for 705 1" unfaced at 125Hz seems inconsistent on this otherwise tremendous webpage. OC703 goes for ~$46 + SH for 2'x4'x1" x 6 panels (48 sqft) at Acoustimac, more expensive elsewhere. Linacoustic is reported to be $190 for 4'x100'x1" roll (McCormick's Insulation in Manassas - Thanks BigMouthinDC/Jeff!!!).

Material looks a little rough, but OK shape for what we use it for. Seller provided 20% extra to accommodate dings, etc. Will be careful to use mask/gloves as panel was friable. Heavier/stiffer than anticipated.

Ordered extra, got even more. Will give away excess after done in hopefully not too distant future. Now have to determine how to use it. HTH

Phased Adaptive Approach Theater (tentative)

Hi everyone my name is Dave and I live in Arlington VA. I do not have a dedicated theater because I live in a 1300sqft condo. My setup is in my livingroom/ kitchen which is a humble 5.1.4 Atmos setup with:

B&W CWM7.3 (3) up front
B&W CWM7.4 (2) surrounds
B&W CCM682 (4) Atmos speakers in ceiling
Velodyne DD10 sub
ROTEL RMB1565 (5 channel amp)
ROTEL RMB1575 (5 channel amp)

LG E6, Marantz 8802a,Oppo 203,Xbox One

Would love to meet up and watch some movies and also get some advice on making my setup and tuning from some veterans. I am going to be in the market for 2 subs soon but not sure what to get, was thinking JL Audio.

None that I'm aware of. There used to be a few that would travel into the area and people would set up appointments while they were here. I did a quick search and can't find the list of those who would service the area. I'll look some more and post any updates.

Hi All,

Long time lurker, I'm looking into building some 893's or 1099 and want to hear them first. Anyone in the area (Maryland) have some? Any GTG meets planned in the next couple of months? I built a marticube last winter/spring and really enjoyed the process. Thanks
