Priorities!

Hey, so after you left man...

I didn't adjust my sub trim...almost blew up my $hit on a commercial...lol.

I was wondering...man, I hear a buzz coming from the subs...Oh, that's because my gain is set to stupid.

Punk started out as ridged...end up as fluffy.

Question... If you are putting all the fiberglass behind the screen, will it make the area behind the screen seem larger acoustically? I was planning on having a 5' deep area behind my screen for the speakers, but if I don't need it due to stuffing fiberglass around the speakers and behind them... I would have a larger area for seating.

Seems like Fluffy got it hard. I hope you used some lube on Fluffy's pink stink?

You know, every time I've touched Fluffy... I get this red rash afterwards, I think Fluffy might "have" something. biggrin.gif

I've never seen it applied like that, compressed/ not compressed, etc. Keep in mind, the acoustic properties where going for w/the fluffy stuff, are altered/compromised when it's compressed at all. smile.gif

I know using fluffy presents logistical issues due to it not being self supporting, it'll stack maybe two high without compressing, and it can be supported with any type of cheapo bird netting. Or, one can hang it vertically. Just hang the batt from the top in any way possible. One could use pants/slacks hangers (clamp type) and merely hang the thing full length. Or some type of dowel, or any kind of wood to loop the entire batt over and hang both sides down full length.

Safe-N-Sound stuff stacks up much better, if one was so inclined.

If you've not seen this;BobGolds, it's indispensable. The info about 3/4 of the way down is great, many good links/pics, etc. While perusing the absorption coefficients, note the "on wall", "x" inches off wall, mounting methodology, and how much one gains with thickness and spacing.

Tons to explore there, all solid stuff.

Did the insulation make any difference?

I used protection and took a shower right afterward.

Yeah, did it in a huge hurry...trying to get everything situated before the Cowboys game. In hindsight, it would have been much easier and convenient to hang vertically. It was only $11 worth of pink fluffy, so I'll tear it all down and start over at some point soon.

Thanks for the link! I'll try to give it a read today.

I watched the Cowboys game and listened to a few songs last night. Couldn't tell a difference...but I clearly didn't execute properly.

When I tear down and re-implement, I will be sure to take some detailed measurements (something I didn't have time for this go around).

Finished the step-by-step write up last night. I'll be making some saw dust tonight. Plan to take lots of pics to accompany the write up. I even have the ol' GoPro setup to do a time lapse video.

I'm going out of town this weekend, but I'll try to have the video edited and everything posted up sometime next week.

It kind of elaborate so I will be making a separate thread so people won't have to dig through this one.

Speaking of new thread. Maybe you guys could help me come up with a schnazzy name for the method? Here are a few that popped in my head over the past couple of days:

"How to make PERFECT Grills using the ---"

Grill Underlay Method - "GUM" Method (Method twice?)
Popalock's Epic Grill Method - "PEG" Method (A bit vein maybe?)
F*$kin Awesome Grill Method - "FAG" Method (Raf out Roud)
Over Engineered Grill Method - "OEG" Method

Anymore suggestions? Just looking for more to put into a poll. Once you guys see the write up, I'd imagine one of the suggested names we come up with here will be a good fit.

Thx! I like the 4th one cuz it represents what most die-hard DIY fellas are all-about...over engineering/thinking on the cheap!

Got a new toy this weekend.

IMG_20131027_213423_zps149a6144.jpg

Will be using two of the channels of the FP10KQ for my nearfield subs while the FP14K is down for maintenance.
post #834 of 943
Nice buy - I am trying to figure out what new mains to build so I can have the reason to buy one of those too
post #835 of 943
Nice addition Austin, that should make the Klipsch go to another level. I tried to find the dimensions of your rear box build but the index didn't lead me to. Can you give me the numbers?

So are the voice coils still intact on the RF7s?? Unacceptable! biggrin.gif

I picked this up to future proof myself. I figure the chance of me either purchasing or building something that needs more than the Clone can deliver would be slim.

Thanks for reminding me. I need to dig up that sketchup file and post it up for all. Right off the top of my head... Well, let me confirm and get back to you tonight, but I want to say the dimensions are 40"H x 74"W x 11.75D.

Just barley had the chance to hook everything up last night. Was quickly reminded how insanely loud the fans are. I'll report back tonight.

That's the one thing I hate about some pro amps. The loud fans.

Some are really loud. I just bought a used QSC RMX1850 and it's crazy loud for home use. I just ordered replacement fan. Hopefully it will do the trick, current fan is very distracting with music.

Man I came real close to picking up some QSC RMX amps awhile back and I had wondered bout the fans. My rack is about 5 feet behind my row of seats so any loud piece of equipment is very noticeable. Hope your new fan works for ya.
