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.

Unfortunately funding this project means selling one of the toy cars. In all honesty I don't mind since I'd get far more use of of this.

Well, if I ever try my hand at DIY I know who I'm asking to build the enclosure. tongue.gif

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

You mean "when" you finally sack up and do a DIY project, right? biggrin.gif

I've become obsessed with the CNC stuff. Spending a bit of time on CNC zone and talking to various folks. Learning as much as a I can at this point. tongue.gif

How many subs will be in the workshop?

The downside to painting (other than being permanent) is that the panels actually have some decent absorption properties to them and painting them would seal them up quite a bit. I've been thinking about building a panel that would cover that area of the ceiling and wrapping it in triple black velvet. This would give me the option to try it out and remove if I don't like it without a permanent change. Not sure how much of a difference it would make, but I'm sure I will experiment at some point. biggrin.gif

Another option would be to cover a bunch of 2x4 acoustic panels and double wrap them in black speaker cloth. Hmm.

I have an order going into ATS today for about 8-12 2x4 panels that I am going to have them do to my specs. So I can probably comment on all that after I get them in smile.gif

To be determined. I know I'll be planning a SEOS build of some sort - preferably something full range capable to get me started until subs come into play. tongue.gif

Looking forward to your thoughts B. ATS sells those panels for little profit, almost not even worth building them yourself. smile.gif

As was mentioned briefly above....and I have mentioned...the Single 8's were great but the SEOS builds were .025 percent behind (imo)...and the cost delta is large. Of course everything with all caveats previously mentioned...and I need to hear the again..

Old thread, I know, but I'm curious as to other people's impressions on the JTR S8s versus the SEOS builds... would pretty much everyone agree with being very equal in terms of sound quality and dynamics for smaller HTs?

I just gave this thread a quick read and wanted to say thanks for all the excellent posts by all. It was interesting to read.

Krk Rp10-3 vs JBL LSR308

Hi all,

I am new here on the forum.

Did someone heard the newer JBL LSR 308 speakers? What do you think, could it be better than Krks? Although, JBL is cheaper for around 400$ in Europe.

Thanks.

Not as of yet. I think a few guys are waiting on the 7 series passive JBL's to come out and perhaps then you can get a comparison, although not exactly the same since they are not active. I have toyed with the idea, but won't be ordering any as I don't know what else I would do with them once I played around with em for a little while.
