I meant to thank Ted White and John Hile earlier on in this thread - sorry guys. The service I received from them was top-notch; their prices were competitive with local suppliers even after duty and shipping; and the shipment arrived on time even though I ordered on election day and after Sandy did her damage. I fully understand the sentiments on these boards regarding The Soundproofing Company. Thanks again!
I'm taking delivery of my projector and screen today. Christmas in November! I went with the X30 because the price was right, and I don't care too much for 3D. The screen is an EluneVision 4k AT 110" wide, Scope, 1.15 gain. Interested to see if this screen can compete with its competitors at double the price.

This crossed my mind (even surprising myself!) which had me thinking access panels, but then the soundproofing done on the phone booth would be mitigated; however, if the space outside the theater where the dead vent exhausts (or intakes) is not sound sensitive, couldn't the fan be positioned at the end of the ducting where it would be way more accessible? I'm assuming Ted's manuals show the fan in the middle because it would be smack in the middle of all the absorptive/damping material.
I got a couple of quotes on the supply and install of a mini split heat pump - both were $4000 CAD (that's like a couple of bucks US
) The specs are 12000 btu, 1 zone; the install involves a pipe run of ~ 15-20 ft, drain line about 8-10 ft into my sump pump, outdoor unit off the ground. I'm convinced the margin on these quotes is close to 50% after all
costs. But they have bills to pay and mouths to feed like everybody else...errr, I guess.
