post #511 of 983
Thanks ELmo I checked a couple of builds personally earlier this year with Seymour center-stage screens and i liked the material. I guess my opinion won't change after i hook up the projector. I noticed on the forum some people even use it with the Sony 4K instead of the seymour screen excellence 4K just because they liked the" bit more pop" from the higher gain center-stage.

Hey Vikgrao, Is that 140" diagonal or 140" wide?
post #513 of 983
Hi,
Its 140" wide and around 151.9" diagonal.
post #514 of 983
Thanks - One more question (for now anyway :-)

What is your ceiling height for the room?
post #515 of 983
7' 6" in the front to 7' 4" in the back. I had 9' to start with but i wanted as much isolation as possible from the floor above so after spacing from the existing ceiling joists and building new ceiling joists,clips channel and 3 layers DW+GG it came down to that. at the back it came lower due to existing beams and ductwork. Probably will want to have 10-12ft or more in my next build smile.gif

I'm definitely going to steal a lot of ideas from this build. The color scheme, absolutely. Love the black/gray/blue rope lighting combination. I also like curves, but they are difficult to create.

I think that Vik is waiting on me to show up and help finish a couple of small details. Or at least Vik can use that as an excuse until I do actually show up to help. LOL.

Vik, I promise I have not forgotten you and my offer to help, I swear! biggrin.gif

That is quite the tool purchase. Looks sweet!
post #527 of 983
Thanks austin!

My Wife became the new " Big" and was very adamant in handing me over the tools saying she did not believe i could do a better job than her. So while i played assistant, She did some surgery in making fresh openings in the 3 layers of drywall in the rear of the room and then, removed and relocated the power supply for the projector and the smurf conduit with the projector wires, to the new openings in the rear. She mostly used the Bosch multi tool to cut the drywall and used the same to cut openings in the plank of wood which mounts on the ceiling for the projector. Then she patched the old holes with drywall mud.

Tomorrow will be mostly painting and touch ups inside the room and When RT comes on Sunday I guess we will mount the Panamorph UH480 lens which i already have and mount the Epson 6020 which i am planning to purchase on Saturday.

Hah you have a great wife! I have the same ridgid wet vac, best investment in years..
hey I dated a couple doctors/nurses off match.com, I definitely noticed some personality traits they shared. I wonder if you see your coworkers having similar personality traits?

I don't want to date a doctor anymore after my experiences in match lol.

Lol smile.gif
post #530 of 983
I have ordered the exact same screen although my room is smaller. Seeing it next to people makes it look much larger. I'm a little scared now smile.gif
I love the lighting in this room. If I promised blue lights my WAF would be a lot easier, but alas I like green.
Great work guys, excellent theatre. Did you ever end up getting any SPL figures from the sub?? Something tells me 115db won't be a problem for you biggrin.gif
post #531 of 983
I hate the mobile version of AVS I have tried to post to the forum many times via mobile just to have my post disappear several times to this thread alone. rolleyes.gif But I digress........

Vik,

Have you seen the projector in person? I only ask because when I decided on the 8350 I knew what the measurements of the PJ were but the physical size did not "hit me" until I had it at home and in my grubby little paws. It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I soon got accustom to the size of the thing but at first it was kind of a shock. The 6020 is black I think right? That would be the only thing I would change about the 8350 would be to make it black, don't know why they don't make them all black or at least darker instead of cream or white. Oh well.


@elmalloc......Bad experience dating Dr.'s???? LOL. No need to comment, I was just making an observation. I know several single nurses if you need some date options still in the medical field however. biggrin.gif Just kidding, just kidding.....

Speaking of dating sites, I just had a buddy marry a girl and he used a dating site. However he dumped her and married one the single nurses I introduced him to and referenced above. biggrin.gif

As a rule I stay out of the match making business, too many options and variables and if it goes really bad you have two people mad at you. mad.gif

Now back to your regularly scheduled build thread.

Regards,

RTROSE
post #532 of 983

post #534 of 983
Vik, Your HT looks like a million bucks.. , What type are speaker are those in the walls and next to your Orbital? Also, I'm in the process of building a dedicated (no were like yours) darkened room with elevated sitting and possibly a screen size between 130" to 150" fixed screen.. my ht size in 25'x17' . do you think the screen size is too big? planning to hook up the projector about 18 feet back (projector choices - Panasonic Ae8000 or Sony es50).. Please help out a fellow Desi.. smile.gif
post #535 of 983
Hi Zaus,
The Main speakers are Seaton Catalyst 12C. With 17 foot of width 150" screen would work in your room but the above projectors would not do justice since they wont light it up enough. Between the two the Panny would be slightly better in my opinion. I am not sure if your talking about 16:9 or 2:37:1 aspect ratio screen though. Goodluck!
post #536 of 983
Well Vik has entered the RTROSE (slow as molasses) curse or is it vortex? More details to follow. Needless to say things did not go anything like was planned.

Stay tuned!

post #537 of 983
eek.gif there were a couple of missing screws in the panamorph mounting kit. I would have not figured out if it was not for RT! Hopefully will get it sorted tomorrow and Mount up the PJ soon! I am glad RT got my Back! biggrin.gif
post #538 of 983
A little background. Vik picked up the Epson 6020 just yesterday. This is a great PJ, but I think Vik already has upgrateitus. Doesn't even have a completed theater yet and already has that dreaded disease! biggrin.gif Gotta love this hobby/illness! Sorry Vik could not resist giving you a little ribbing about that. I think though that on the subwoofer front you will not want or need an upgrade anytime soon!

Anyway before we even got started with the lens, mount, and the associated kit we unboxed the PJ and gave it a test run. Everything out of the box was working as it should and the image (to me anyway) looked incredibly realistic, sharp, and natural looking. We then started to assemble the kit.

Neither Vik or I have any experience in this type of kit/mount so it was the blind leading the blind at this point. Part of the issue, IMHO, is the directions are not all that clear, maybe geared towards the professional, I don't know. The drawing of the mounting plate did not match the plate Vik had and the diagrammed holes did not match up. We did find holes that matched, and used those. That sounds simple right? Yeah sounds simple, but not ever doing this before, and It's not mine, meaning that if I screw it up I'm in deep dodo made me be extra cautious. Then came the Chief RPA000 mount. I'm actually familiar with this mount as this is what I used to mount my PJ. I think that was the other thing that threw me as they don't mount this setup the same way as they do for a standard setup. Here I think familiarity hurt my thinking process, and the fact that we did not have the proper hardware which even drove me battier trying to figure out the mounting process. Vik is going to make a couple of calls/emails to Panamorph tomorrow to get some things ironed out with them and I think once that is done we will be back in business and on our way.

Unfortunately as I stated above I think I have pulled Vik into the RTROSE Slow as molasses time vortex. Sorry bout that Vik! redface.gif

To top it all off my beloved Colts lost their playoff game today. frown.gif

These photos that follow are mainly for Vik to show how my Chief mount works.

Here is the knurled knobs/nuts. See how the thread of the screw just barely pokes through if it were screwed down? That is why I know the other screws in the kit were too long.



This shows you how the plate I have looks as it is attached to the PJ



This shows the distance between the PJ and the ceiling (without the pole extension)



Here is just simply the mount on the ceiling. Pretty simple and straight forward.



I did give myself a heart attack though. When I put the PJ back up I did not get the knobs in correctly and about two seconds after I let go the PJ it fell off of the mount. I caught it about a foot into the fall, but man did my heart ever miss a beat. Sheesh! I am SOOOO glad I did not take my hands too far from the PJ. Whew disaster averted!

I hope the pics help you to see how the mount partially works anyway. I think after having taken more time to look at it and thinking about it I think the six bolts take the place of the knurled knobs and there is not a "quick release" feature like mine. We shall see. Hopefully we will get some answers from Panamorph tomorrow.

Regards,

RTROSE

I'm guessing a change of underpants required after that?? biggrin.gif

Which Panamorph are you using?? My M480SYS came with instructions encompassing about 4 different plates, although the plate I have is of course JVC specific.
post #540 of 983
Thanks for the pics and the humor RT

MIkey Mine is also the M480SYS with the AK8PRO-S attchment plate which is Epson specific. The issue was with the Chief RPA000 mount. Its box contained just the mount and some screws and nuts. There were no instructions with it, and in the Panamorph AK8PRO-S literature the required screws it was asking for the mount to be attached with were not in the Chief RPA000 box along with two missing Knurled Knob/nuts
