Well I have been trimming like a mad man. It's finally coming together. I'll post some trimmed out doors and base installed shortly. In the mean time I realized I haven't posted any bathroom pictures yet so here's some of those.

Great looking tank. I can't wait to get mine up and going. It will be the high light of the basement. I'm in zombie mode just knocking things out with thinking about whats left. It won't be long now.

I trimmed out the work out room window today. We also got the shade fabric in. My wife is going to make some roman shades for the family room.

I'm working on the riser and would like to turn it into a bass trap. Do I just fill it with insulation and put some holes in it?

My friend picked up a Photon 8(velodyne). We compared it to my 18" Velodyne. It performed very well. It just can't move the air the 18 can but still plays very deep.

Progress! I can now go the bathroom in my basement. Shower won't be done for a while though. I'm waiting for my laminate to show up for the screen. I also picked up another sub. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet but the price was right.

Finally got carpet. I forgot to get a picture of the theater room before we hauled the stuff back in. I'll get some better pictures up later. Still have tons of little items to take care of but I think I'll get the tank going first.

You'll have to excuse me. I haven't heard it in two days, my parents took our son for the weekend.

Absolutely beautiful. We could use more pics of the theater though.

Here's some more theater pics and some things still to do.

1. I'm going to inlay some hardwood or tile on each side of the carpet. It saved me $800 on carpet by not having to buy extra carpet to match the pattern. I can then hang the base molding.

2. I need to get some velvet to wrap the screen frame and mount it.

3. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the riser in yet. I might get some more carpet to finish it. I also need to fill with insulation and utilize as a bass trap.


4. Hang curtain for doors. Maybe curtains for the screen also.

5. I'm going to build and wrap in speaker grill material a soffit across the back to connect the two side soffits. It will house some 7.1 speakers, cables and some insulation for a bass trap.

6. Speaker pedestals. Not sure what to make these out of yet. I have a sump pit under the right main.

Here's a quick recap of the theater.

finished measurements
14'4" wide
17'6" deep
7'8" tall
DD 5/8's with GG
Exterior mahogany doors

Martin Logan speakers
Velodyne sub
Sunfire receiver
Panasonic AE900
Laminate screen
Controlled by a Jobsite IR system

3 zones of Zwave controled lights(front cans(4"), rear cans(4"), sconces)
15" HD lcd used mainly to keep an eye on the kids and watch the front door during movies

Front lights dim on to 20% for 10 sec. when phone rings and rears do the same when the door bell rings.

How wide is that riser and how comfy are those seats? I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my back row and I'm leaning towards a riser with those kinds of seats.

Nice HT and basement, btw. I love your stain color and wood choice.

This is off the the subject of theaters but I thought some may find this tank stuff interesting. I built a light rack with aluminum angle and just rivoted it together. The track system that moves the lights out of the way is just door tracks and an old homade weight bench.

Anyone out there have a Curtain Call electric curtain system? I bought one new in the box off of craigslist and put it together today. It works fine but it won't stop automatically at either end. Any help would be appreciated.

Mounted my screen and decided to add some rope light behind it. It doesn't look as cool as the picture looks. I used a night setting on the camera and it came out cool. You can't see the light shining through the laminate with your eyes but some how the camera picked it up. I still need to frame it with velvet but before I do that I want to investigate some diy masking.

Somebody out there has to have a Curtain Call electric curtain system. Any one know of any window covering forums that may have info on these?
post #84 of 91
I've got one, but it's still in the box, pretty much. IIRC it did stop at the end of travel. Maybe this weekend I can take it out and see if that's still the case.

Thanks for looking. I don't see any thing that would make it stop one way or the other. If you have a tech. support # let me know. Getting a hold of the manufacture may be my next step.

Well I got the mirrors up on the wall in the work out room. I picked up some silicone and mirror tape from a glass shop in town. It was a fairly easy job. I'm either going to trim around it with alder or have the wife make some curtains to go around it.

I got my screen border up. I used 3.25" mdf and covered it in Madonna black velvet.





My wife finished up the roman shades for the living room also.

Finally got the hardwood installed on the edges.



On a bad note I forgot to permanently secure the cleat holding the screen up. I came home to a broke screen. New one on order.
