I did mine with 1/4" birch plywood. It was on sale at menards for $10 a sheet. Then I ripped down some 3/4" thick pine into strips about 3/4" x 1" and glued/screwed then to the backside of the...

I would use construction adhesive until the whole room is framed and square. Then once you are positive the wall is exactly how you want it, I'd drill a few holes on either side of the crack in stud...

Putting down a roll of Platoon (sp?) with 3/4" OSB or Plywood screwed down to the concrete may actually save you money. It's the safer bet regarding...

fwiw, I've heard Lennox has a much better reputation than Trane in the HVAC world. Doublewing is right though, the installer makes more of a difference. All things being equal, go with Lennox.

I agree with most replies touting Makita. However, I disagree with the idea that you need the 3.0 amp-hour batteries. I have a Makita set with the smaller batteries, and I've never had an issue. ...

What's to the right of this picture? Is it unconditioned space? You could put a false wall on the right and use in-wall speakers and an IB without sacrificing much depth.

I agree about hiding...

Ok here's another suggestion regarding the screenwall. Just put the false wall 2' forward, and if your posts are exposed.....build a couple short walls coming off the sidewalls to hide the posts. ...

Now you're getting somewhere Dave. I'm totally with Silva on this one. I think the 180 degree flip works much better.

I'm not sure how you could test it, but I'm pretty sure you will not get any more than 2 channel audio from your tv. I actually dealt with this exact issue years back and ended up buying an AVR...

Yeah zone 2 for music or something. Possibly even duplicates of your LCR's, although that would change the resistance on the amp. I'm not sure how or if that would even work.

My opinion: If you only want room for 6 seats, split the space in 2. It's way more cost effective to keep the sound-isolated space as small as possible. Your problem is going to be the entrance...

I built 2 full-size martysubs for basically right at $1000. I've been told this will create more output than at least $2000 in purchased subs, but I haven't made it that far.
