Programmed the bric to the calibrated AR - which is wicked simple.



Insulated wall cavities...



The dining room has four invisible speakers and 2 nearly invisible subs(velodyne)



The Historical stairs are nearing a complete restoration. 2 sub slots visible.



And the living room, I could see a masked ball taking place there...

One side shows: absorption in the front, BAD panel with binary refraction template over 1 inch fiberglass behind fabric.





The back wall...



The front wall and inside the TORUS Vacuum screen.

Just got this message from the operating table...
"63% isn’t going to work, can’t get enough lumens with a 3k. Trying a 58% now."

There go the chances of hitting 6,500 on/off, this is a cliffhanger.

In a conference room scratching 5k-1 and 825 ansi cr (same as wolfgang), iluminating a 4meter 1 gain of 1.8 with 30 ftlamberts. The picture subjectively is spectacular, however I have been promised a new DLP MOD development so hush hush that not even Barco knows about it, not even Odyssey or Wolfgang know about it, it won't be available for another month but it is guaranteed to increase the extra 15-20%, it will be retrofitted on this one.

As you see a lot of this experimentation is trial and error, the .63 aperture reduction (perfectly acceptable with 1.2 chip units) is a light hog, it had to be opened up a bit for optimal .98 chip light-tube compatibility.

The projector will be moved to a black hole for the measurements that I will post later.

No, this provides the opportunity to increase ARPU, by using DP2000 4KW as base. Making it the exclusive option to the little kontrast, and those looking to go slumming with the farbenmeister.

Originally the torus was going to be 16" in it's deepest point. The King is concerned that with all the acoustical treatments and by having floated the room, that we lost valuable viewing space, consequently a decree was passed to reduce the shape of the screen and bury the proximity sensor, we will gain 4".

First golden rule matching fronts behind the screen no mismatching only matching makes a perfect sonic sound.

You first review the DVD on your own in the home cinema, then on opening night you stay in the booth that is the golden number one rule!


Now I’ve spotted the ultimate home cinema its often what is in front of you that eludes you! The swimming pool no one gives a hoot about swimming pools today I mean you’ve got shark infested waters and what more do you what!?

The swimming pool is the perfect candidate, its got a sloping concentre flooring that levels out at the deep end and all it takes now is rethinking and remodelling the idea out again! I bet the swimming pool home cinema idea can do at least 20 seats if not more! And you can cover the walls with at least 10 on each side and 4 to 6 on the back wall and 20 for “overheard sonic whole” the fonts should all be JBL professional 4675-A and 4645C subs, easy if you’ve got the dosh.

How much are those guys charging you for all this? I think you need a mate who’s on the demolition payroll to get most if not all the materials next to nothing and you may save at least a few grand!

Why pump the water out. Just get some of those butt kickers for underwaterspeakers, and you're set.

And at some of its construction pictures Arnold Chase's theater did look like a giant concrete swimmingpool;-).

I’m quite serious because I bet when he had the idea and stated taking pictures to show-off the real answer was starring straight at him.

Yeah put a big screen erected on the far end of the swimming pool while guests are swimming around and toss in the bass shakers, just make sure there safe for water first, otherwise the guests might get a bit of BUZZZZZ! ROTFLMAO

I'll let Peter answer you himself.

I think your idea of quality sound and Peters are at very different levels.

I have not seen any further posts on his theater. Was it ever finished or is there a thread showing its progression?


Thx.

According to a post on cp's forum the scheduled completion date is November, in May there was a post that pictures would follow once the actuall theaterbuild starts.

this is behind the cantilevered siffet, we still have to add 4" of rpG diffusion and absorption in the middle, as well as 5/8 faBRITRAK WITH GOM.

This is one heck of a floating soffett, Proud Papa says...








This is where the rack goes, notice the antistatic flooring:

Not an entirely uneventful day...

Where do I start? At this point Helene and Prometheus are a juggle, but Prometheus is obviously the bulk of the tasks. We also have to keep the web site development part going, and as I Googgled SUPERKONTRAST I find this:

SUPERKONTRAST (what they really think about CINERAMAX)

I laughed and cried, how emotions run... Every single aspect of my persona is scrutinized and dumped on therein. Anyways the thread kept me up late last night, and we have a very tight schedule to finish the "Voice of God".

We were hoping to have had that done by last Friday and we need to move on to other things so we started early this morning installing the speaker baffle boxes that convert a rear ported esotar design to a slot loaded front firing in-ceiling. I predict it is going to sound celestial.










Meanwhile we noticed that a cherry picker had been hauling huge boxes to the third floor. The CINEMATECH ESPADA CHAIRS.



"Today?, during this construction? " Yes the top italian VP ordered that all the chairs be positioned for an inspection from the Architect.

We continued fitting the boxes which was a PAIN TO LINEUP WITH THE EXISTING CONDUIT, ETC ETC.

At one point the entire upper brass speaking 100% Italian walked into the room and asked me what I was doing, we demonstrated the design of the boxes to the owner, he asked if it would work, and I said yes, it is the "voice of god", he nodded.

Meanwhile I was asked to stop, nevermind that I had commissioned the cabinet worker and his assistant to put the speker boxes. The architect was here. I asked foir 3 hours and got 1/2 hour to clear the space for the chairs.



The owner and architect discuss hallway clearances. The rear divan is discussed, the architect explains that traditional form and function demds that the sofa be 160cm deep, we barely have 140 cm not counting the 10 inches of the rpg refractor panels, we decide to cut the refractor panels in half and make the divan 140cm deep.



The architect like all great designers has great conviction in his ideas that during the design construction phases have clashed with MY ideas of what works ergonomically best, I am as accommodating as possible but if I see that something will be greatly sacrificed I let it know. Suffice is to say thet there were three things that I told the owner to do that he agreed with me, that did not sit well with the architect. At the end of the day, and after some very spirited and dramatic shows of emotions on the part of the Peninsular Brass, some compromises were made



The architect is a ****ing genious, I was able to take a snaphot of his handmade sketch. The wing shaped armoires on the side are not only a show stopper they are acoustical too.



At least one thing impressed the architect, the D-BOX.

When we explained to him that the whole "pavimento" would move with the "Film" he said. "Esso si me piace".



Italian design at it's highest meets maximum MTF. What a day!
Some of my critics are right. I don't give a damn of what they think, this is taking an artform to it's highest plateau, they should stay on the sidelines, shut up, and learn.

Before Ugo did not care how much motion the platform had, thankfully he changed his mind, now it is only going to be as wide as the 4 seat 5 arm footprint.

I however compensating for the shifted center of gravity of the reclined seats will make the actuator footprint as small as humanly possible, leaving the two outside chairs fully cantilevered, and occupying as small as possible front to back span, this sucker is going to ROCK even if we have to build the aluminum support twice.

Yeah but I only have detailed content on the two last ones, so I will need to make them featured installations or something.
post #53 of 330
You used to have sketches of the rearpro set-up as well. You promised us some pictures of this set-up, months ago, needed to be re-taken you said, so would be a while.

For the rest you could just give a bit more detail, like the equipment used, basic designprinciples invoked, size of the room, perhaps a scan of some old polaroids. You refer to 'award winning', 'influential', 'inspired such and such', so add to that, perhaps some pictures of the spin-offs, and additional credentials. An unidentified 'awardwinning' claim, always makes me cringe;-).

But indeed start with what you have. At the Curt's thread you linked, they also referred to that other 'hyperbole site', Jeremy's, that has also started to look better, needed some clean-up, that's all. His site, nor your's are cleaned-up enough, yet, but good progress to nice and navigatable sites has been made.

What is wrong with this picture?


We put the explosive lamps in this corner a few weeks ago, the cabinet guys went and built all that millwork so the box could not be moved, in any direction. LOL.

The box had to be carefully cut in place.






These guys have done the most exquisite cabinet work for royalty in every kingdom, from the uk, to dubai, and for Michael Schumacher.

I accidentally dropped a 500 watt xenon the other day. It was still sitting in its Styrofoam container but just my luck when it hit the floor it still blew up. For such a small lamp it was plenty loud. I can imagine one of those larger lamps going off, scary indeed. Definitely worth the precaution waring the gear. Nice work Peter.

Somehow I expected you would say something like this;-).

Are you serious? I don't think I would agree. Perhaps for your type of set-ups of dedicated viewing rooms, but with the readily available architectural glass screens new opportunities for great displays have arisen.

No that's so he can go over to Curt's.
