Done, Foam insulation, AC, the failed room has been taken off & sliding glass doors now back, new kitchen cabs & Quartz counter-tops. Currently busting up the lower bathroom slab to change the location of the commode. (So that there is room for a walk-in tub.

Well, want to give an update on my IB build. Got the frame (mostly) done and speakers are put in. Tomorrow, more bracing, insulation, plywood and hopefully be finished.

Here is some eye candy.

Manoj,

Looking good!

Hey, I'm in Vegas this weekend. I completely forgot that the wife and I had this weekend planned ( she handles all the social stuff / trip planning).

Anyhow I will be home for next three weeks in case u need some help, but then I leave to Ohio for a week.

Kevin,

Hey, no problem at all. You have already helped me a lot. Family comes first, enjoy your weekend at Vegas.

I am hoping to get everything done tomorrow. Although, I don't have the amp yet, still waiting for inuke's to be in stock. Sweetwater have again given new ETA.

He wouldn't do that here. Chris always starts a separate thread for their annual open house. For example, here is the one from last year:

UPDATE- NOW FULL --- Pioneer Electronics Open House --- Come get a sneak preview of Andrew Jones latest project

Your pictures aren't displaying. The ones in post 6515 show up fine.

I'm confused. The woofers don't appear to be in an IB configuration. What large space is the back wave working into?

Robert, the box is 160" wide, 100" tall, 20" deep. Approx 185 liters minus the space taken by speakers.

Very nice to see you going all the way with baffle wall. A worthy endeavor and something to be proud of.

FWIW, we met, courtesy of Sanjay, at CES 2013 and chatted for a while after show at the hotel.

Enjoy the build!

Wait, what?! 185liters for all four IB18's?

I hope you meant for the manifold which isn't really a "box".

Also, does the space that the two outside 18's utilize the same space that two internal 18's use? It sorta looks like they all use the whole space behind the screen together. I hope that is what you did.

Thanks Jim.

Yes, I remember the discussion very well and the thought provoking question. In my case, the IB + baffle wall just came together as I don't have any other adjoining space to that room. It was nice chat in the hotel. Hope to meet you again sometime over drinks, hopefully soon.

Scott, I have two manifolds. All the drivers are firing inside the box and it takes up the whole space behind the screen. There are no outside 18's. All we see in the manifold is the back of the drivers. Hope this clarifies.

Ah, so they're working into a large space behind the screen. That's where I was confused.

Is the wall in the photos that you are setting up the speakers, etc. the same wall where you used to have the Home Depot purchased screen? Same room?
