My room has a 2.7 m ceiling height.
But I knew I wanted to cut that down to around 2.5 or so.
I designed a frame that would be as isolated from the ceiling as possible, through using an innovative anchoring design I came up with. We used metal brackets and neoprene 'washers'. Of course mounting anything at some point there must be enough contact for the frame to attach onto. but at each point I have used neoprene which reduces the hard-to-hard type fastening methods.
The resulting frame kind of free floats, which minimizes vibrations going to the rest of my house. My theater is in my lowest level of my house, not the basement (I have a 3 level house with my lowest level open on 1 side and buried towards the front of my house - sloping block of land you see..), so I needed to try and stop bass vibrations traveling upwards.
After the base frame was completed, I created a baffle and layer design of Ecophon acoustic panels, inter-layered with mineral wool batts.
You know I wish I had now taken decent shots of all of this, but I was eager to get it all done.
