I don't think I have shared any pictures of the door since I finished painting. Today I got the home-made case molding stained and hung. With that, the door is done.

The carpet guys came last week...

The chrome plating on that grill was done by the same folks who are doing some metalwork for the theater. (Yes?)

I'm sure you would come up with this if you just went to make some measurements, but it's as simple as measuring one sub and then two together without moving the mic or changing any levels. Where the...

I'd say the reflection from the front wall is the culprit (as evidenced by the shift in frequency when you relocated the speakers). My first thought was that you try the traps directly behind the...

Test for of the screen is going okay. I've adjusted the brackets that I slapped together to hang the screen from so that the screen is better square to the room. I don't think a half-inch difference...

Yep. That's a fine idea.

I have not fired the measurement system back up. I'd like to, but it has taken a back seat for a couple reasons. I figured that I don't have a lot more useful to learn until I get four subs up and...

As follow-up, the proscenium is up. I don't have a good picture because it seems my flash stopped working. (I'll try again later)

I'm surprised that there is space for the connector on the side at all. If the handles have to be on the front to get the things wrestled into position, there can't be much clearance. I'd hate to...
