Where's the talk about everything else but HT. LOL
Glad to see everything is smoothly coming along.
Hey there David,
I would love to chat about off topic projects but I can't afford to do them. The budget has taken a bit of a hit with Christmas and the Holidays so I am just making do with the theater project to keep me out of trouble. I am still ashamed to say that I have not completed painting the timber posts on my deck from months ago. They are about two thirds done and I know I really need to get back to them. It's just that I am enjoying working in the theater too much right now.
Spent a couple of hours in there last night painting the front, top and sides of the DTS-10 subs in flat black paint. You certainly get a feeling of how large these things are when you have to paint them! They will be going behind the AT screen so didn't want any light coloured wood showing through. Also painted the front face of the two support studs. Then replaced the banana plugs (I bent one and broke the other) so I should be right to go with subs within the next few days. Then the tweaking begins.
I ordered some CSR Supertel, which is a close match to the OC703 used by the guys in the US. I pick it up next Monday. It's not quite as dense (32kg per m3) but should be fine. It will be a mixture of 25mm and 50mm pieces. I ordered enough for behind the screen wall, the back wall and first reflection point treatments. Hopefully it will make a big difference. Not sure how much room I will have for corner bass traps behind the subs... it's real tight back there. Anyway, here is a link to the supplier and product for any local guys looking:http://www.agiinsulation.com.au/prod...3-Plain-15332/
I will try to get some photos today or tomorrow of the room progress. May even knock up the screen frame this afternoon after work. I have all the brackets and materials... just need to cut it up and assemble.
Have a great day.
