Nice house! How far are you located from The Arrowhead Project?

Great thing is he is also a artist and graphic designer.
Hope Big enjoyed the warm weather where he went, since after he left a STRANGE FOG rolled in right in the middle of the day and almost ate up his white van parked outside, after this the weather here changed to crazy cold! Right now as i post the priming is being done.

Thanks Nebrunner, The last picture says it all, that is exactly what happened and is still going on!. I may be around 20 hours drive from the Arrowhead project but only 90 minutes from Waverley Hills Sanatorium!

I am going with the Denon 4520CI receiver. The signal processing Shawn said that i need to implement along with it is a couple of QSC Audio DSP 322UA and a Audio Control Savoy G3 amplifier for the surrounds. I am yet to make a decision about them still.

Well, I can't imagine you could find too many units more full-featured, but I sure can't see why you would need more than one. Of course, I don't even know where to shop for similar items, so what do I know? Thanks for filling me in.
post #98 of 983
The reason the system would require two DSP's is the number of outputs required. In VIK's case, he has 9 outputs at a minimum maybe more depending on the number of subwoofers. Each DSP unit has a maximum of 8 outputs.
post #99 of 983
Ahh, yes. The extra subwoofers. I always imagine that sort of DSP used only for full-range channels, with devoted DSP for subs. Clearly the all-in-one is the cleaner choice. Thanks for clarifying Shawn.
post #100 of 983
You're welcome! Bang for the buck, you cannot beat the QSC 322ua's. You would be very hard pressed to find units anywhere near as capable as those for the price.

Subscribed. A great build thread for sure!! Love seeing designs from Shawn (he calibrated my Kuro) and Dennis. They are some of the best. Vikgrao have you decided on a projector yet?
post #109 of 983
Thanks! The design is actually of a French theater I saw on the web but Dennis did design the raiser. Shawn and Dennis also did the room layout and acoustics. BigmouthinDC (Jeff) further tweaked the design and started building and turning my room into reality and making my dream come true. They are all Gurus on the forum and highly recommend.

I am contemplating between the EPSON 6020 or Sony HW50ES whichever lights up my 140" centerstage better for 3d and 2d. This will be temporary untill I am ready to upgrade to a better one.

Cool man. Oh ya that's right I remember you saying earlier how you were inspired by a French theater. You will definitely be taken care of by that all-star group of guys you hired. Your equipment list is killer too. I can tell u definitely did all your homework and then some. I hear ya on the projector. I just purchased a BenQ W7000 to get me by until I can save and get a really high end model.

Worked continued on the curvy riser and stage. All decking is done, the steps were made. Everything three layers but you only see two in the pictures. the small step was typically over engineered but it is solid. We also attached a lip under the outer edge to conceal rope light tested it and it worked Pics tomorrow on that concept. We go up off our knees and decided to pull in the speaker wires for the front array, We pulled both balanced connections and regular speaker wire. Redundant but future proof. I wanted to pull the wires now before we start working on the soffits and walls because I didn't have a hand in installing the conduit or drywall and if there was a problem requiring wall/ceiling surgery I wanted to do that early in the process.

Reinforcements arrived to help with the wiring.

Tomorrow we start on the soffits.

Which way does the door swing?
post #113 of 983
Design called for swinging along the curvature of the step.

Deviation from plan, not ideal but reality. Theater owner/builder wants an out-swing, right handed door.

With two inches of Quest panels on walls and the door, swinging in would have been very interesting.and required a very wide throw hinge. Door to receive two layers of 1/2 inch MDF + GG and will have an electronic keypad lock. It will have 5 hinges.

Oh ok, was gonna say, doesnt look like there was room for a door after the top layers to the steps. So just 1 door swinging into adjacent room, gotcha.
