I'm building a theater with an AT screen (Falcon, woven) over 3 Triad Bronze 4" in-walls and was wondering how to treat the screen wall. Don't really want to cover it with insulation; not sure that's...

Actually, I didn't get that great advice until today, which was why it was too late. The thread got no traction when I first posted it, had moved on to page 2, and was about to die. My carpenter was...

Too late. The last thing my carpenter did before he left the job was make those panels, and I've already bought all the rockwool. Just need to get the fabric now. Also felt the Luon would stabilize...

I just figured if I could cover around 50% of the wall surface with these panels (emphasizing those first reflection points), I'd hit the sweet spot between a room that was too "boomy" and too...

Because rockwool has no inherent stability. It would just sag & slump without a backer-board to keep it in place on one side, and the fabric on the other. I'm hanging the panels on the wall with...

I could use other, not so polite words for it. It's all part of the "government can't do anything right" narrative that's been pushed so hard for the last 30 years. :rolleyes: This whole Ebola thing...

Well. This thread has sure turned out to be a bust. Thought there would be dozens of replies. Oh well.

In case anyone cares, I'm going with the 2" deep rockwool inside a 3/4" x 2" wood frame. Luon...

She didn't go through the machine. Why would she? She came to Hydra as a willing recruit. And rose pretty high in the ranks rather quickly. She seemed a little too deux ex machina to me. When has...

Spoken by someone who's probably never felt one. Ugh. They're not even nice to look at (and a trained eye can always tell).

Nope. First rule: if you reference someone, you need to provide a pic.

But is it more effective than Roxul? Intuitively, I wouldn't think so. The sheer "hardness" of it would reflect a certain amount of sound back into the room, defeating the purpose. OTOH, rockwool,...

Not if I put 2" highly flexible rockwool (Roxul) in the frame. It has no structural integrity on its own, as rigid insulation does. It will require a backer-board of some kind. Some kind of burlap...

Best material for acoustic panels?

She sure was. That was a tough role to play and she was playing it opposite a guy who won 3 or 4 Emmys (I lost count). And I thought she sold every scene she was in.

Which of course was the whole point - it was a modern day joust. Silly, sure, but appropriate to a show where medieval stick & string weapons are the weapons of choice.

And I bet your 13 year old nephew enjoys it even more. ;)

And he should, occasionally. He doesn't have superpowers; he's not invulnerable. That makes him more relateable. If he's Superman and never in jeopardy, the show would have a more difficult time...

Perhaps you should wait for the movie to discover the contextual meaning behind that line. Just a thought.

My hunch is, based on the trailer, that our scientists and engineers couldn't ultimately...
