There is no excuse for this major oversight!

Why is there no popcorn in the popcorn machine?

Funny. We have tried it out once or twice. Actually, I am using popcorn as bait to lure the wife into the HT to help install more fabric track! She is halfway decent with a stapler.

Looking amazing!!!!

One question, it looks like the acoustic panels on the wall are blocking your rope lighting that runs around each layer. Maybe it just looks that way in the picture.

Can't wait to turn the keys over to you for calibration next week! It's going to be fun.

I hope it is loud enough to vibrate the muscle cramps out of my back. Those things are HEAVY and I am still feeling it two days later!

And how do the Gold Monitors keep up with that beast? I'm beating myself up.........Plats or Gold Monitors?

Will be interesting to read OP' thoughts when room is up and running..........I've always been a DD guy, recently converted to LMS 5400 Ultra type of guy........now the P-18......

Sorry for the derail............carry on.......

I do not want to derail the thread but the Golds have no problem keeping up...the platinums were not an option for me because they are floor standers...

Crestron. Adam Pelz is rumored to be a grand wizard for programming Crestron. He is going to fix me up this week when he is here to calibrate. Can't wait to see what he can do!

Will your crestron system extend to the rest of your home, or are you sticking to the theater/AV

Wow, been a while since I've visited this thread. Coming along nicely,..and again, the stepped lines are aesthetically killer.

How much absorption/bass trap/damping material is stuffed back there w/the subs (it's quite difficult to discern much detail due to the lighting etc)?

Just the HT for now. May expand later depending on how we use things. It is a new house, so we are unsure how much automation we will actually use.

Thanks for the compliments. There is 1" Insulshield on the baffle wall. Then there are four 4" thick panels from Quest on the left and right sides in between the baffle and proscenium. I have extra panels from Quest that we could use if it is needed. I will take more pictures this week.

Also finished installing all of the furring strips for the fabric tracks and installed all of the acoustic panels:







Next major task is installing the tracks. I will be working on this a little at a time for the next several weeks. Really time-consuming stuff.

I was advised to use the following quest panels in my build, just wondering what each of the following was, do you have these in your build?

Quest Excel
Quest Perfsorber
Quest Q-Sorber

Those are very nice, I'm not sure but they appear "tile" like, I can barely see what appears to be some seams. Like any heavily textural product, it's are about the proper illumination. Nice....

Yes, there are 4 different types. The Excel is the plain yellow panels. The Q-sorber looks the same from the outside, but on the other side, there is metalic foil that contains some gooey stuff in the middle. The Perfsorber is the one with holes. And the Q-flector has a white facing on it.

www.modulararts.com. They sell large MDF panels for bigger walls, or the smaller tiles that I used for the backsplash. Once installed, you use their compound between the seems and sand down to make the seems disappear (mostly).
