Very nice work. Not sure which I'm drooling over more, the theater or the gym.

Sweet screen wall. Can you explain the decision to put 3mil plastic between the layers of Linacoustic?

Dennis Erskine spec'd it.

My understanding is that this is done to minimize the extent that the thicker absorption is effective at higher frequencies. Probably, he's looking to maintain high frequency sound energy in the room. To avoid what has often been referred to as "allowing the absorption to EQ the sound," so the reflected sound has the same spectral content as the direct sound, the extra thickness allows effective absorption at lower frequencies, while the plastic reflects some higher frequencies. My only trouble is having any idea when and where this is appropriate, but that's why DE specifies speakers along with his treatment designs.

Yes that is exactly it!

Dennis spec'd it! The speakers Dennis included are Procella's P610 for LCR, the monster P18 sub, two P10 balancing subs and 4 Triads Bronze surrounds.

so on the weekend I worked on my door. I installed the soundproof door jam and door stop I got from the soundproofing company. What a difference this made. I am actually ordering another set for my other door.







I also had to fabricate my door handle to allowfor the 2" acoustic panel. I had to custom make the offset latch and latch rod. Turned out very well and works like a charm

yesterday I moved my Richard Grays PowerHouse in my AV room. Not an easy task considering it had to be lifted on it's side to fit in the room (this thing weighs in at almost 400 pounds)



Here are some more pics of the HT almost completed. Carpet is going in this week. The carpet crew actually started working in the basement today. They will get to the HT on Wednesday.

Ur rg powerhouse is a beast! Lol

Ur build is looking great!

The lights behind ur screen can u give some detail? R they in the soffit or backer boxes like the other pot lights? How many r there? I have always really liked that look. Especially if u have some really sweat speakers to show off like u have!

Ur pot lights for the rest of the room r just ic retrofit cans like the soundproofing company shows in their specsheets for backer boxes?

Thanks alot!

Awesome job again!

The light s behind the screen are a track light mounted to the back of the soffit and include 4 track lights. I love this feature and so glad I included it!

For my pot lights in the rest of the room I built backer boxes as per the soundproofing co specs (see page 1 of my blog) and then used Elco retrofit cans

Carpet is finally installed! I'm very happy with the way it turned out.





Here is a picture of the Nailor diffusers in the floor. I had these powder coated in flat black. The whole platform acts as a bass trap. The brass plate is a floor mounted plug for the electric recliners



I also installed the step lights tonight.



Here are some pictures of the rest of the basement with the carpet.

for those who were asking, here are two pictures of the track lights I installed behind the screen on the back of the soffit. I ended up putting 5 track lights on it.

If the procella speakers are as good as people say they are, then you are going to have one awesome sounding theater.

Please don't forget to remove all grills from the P610 and the P18. If you can't see them, you don't need them. I see you have already removed the Procella logo from the P10, that is good.

BTW: how did you get the P18 behind that frame? I hope the frame came apart... 220 lbs of subwoofer is a bit much to be lifting over/up/around anything...

Yes all grills will be removed. I left them for now as some sort of protection while I finish up working around the Procella's!

As to getting it behind there.....the middle shelf for the center P610 was removed and my brother and I lifted the P18 over the screen frame and placed it down on the stage. We then pushed it in its final resting place! I then reinstalled the middle shelf. funny thing is when all was done I realized we had put the P18 upside down. Had to redo everything a second time!

Great build. Please report how you like the sound. I may be moving in a few months and will be doing a new theater. I am considering covering my P6's to P610's. I am interested in some feedback as to how you like them, as well as how you set them up...full range in processor, separate crossover, etc. Thanks!

UPSIDE DOWN??? HOW? WHY?? A 220lbs subwoofer? Wrangle it into position UPSIDE DOWN??? Than take it out again and do it all over again?? Good thing you can see the funny side of it, you and your brother... ;-)

Wow!! This one is coming together nicely. Can you tell me what you intend to do with the wires coming out the front of your riser? Looks like a CAT5 or 6 and one other one. Internet connection for laptop?

Come on Gerben. You know how that works. You're in Australia after all.

It was probably as a result of me opening the top of the box and then turning the box on the open side and pulling the box off the xub. the result was an upside down sub!. Andunfortunately in the process of moving it around Idid scuff up the top of the sub which I touched up with flat back paint as you can see in the pictures above. Just cosmetic. Not a big deal.

two are for phone lines and two for internet connections. there are also two plugs in there. I should update these pictures as I have terminated all these wires. Looks pretty good.
