Thought this should make it to the next set of posts/pages (that is if your default is a 100 posts), for prosperity sake.

Also looks like the mohawk is the new defacto do for HT construction.

I think we used 2x10s. 16OC, sand is 100 lbs per cubic feet and comes in 50 lb bags so just do some math for your stage.

Some Pics I took

To conserve walkway space for the back bar I stuck the back end of the rear surrounds in a backer box cut into the double drywall wall. Those columns are significantly less deep than the others









Say bye, bye to the two support poles that we needed to hide. The column width was calculated based on pole and speaker just fitting. The room width based on speaker depth and keeping the poles in the column

Does mounting the speaker into the wall effect the sound quality of the speaker at all ?





also,

what parts did you use for the speaker build ? Was it a complete kit ?

Of course it does, but for the rear surrounds how much do we care if there is a peak in the frequency response that needs to be calibrated away?

Yes it was a kit, $231 with shipping. That is with the CNC cut cabinet option from http://www.diysoundgroup.com/waveguide-speaker-kits/alpha-series-kits/alpha8-kit.html

You should click the YouTube video for an outside demo.

I didn't realize that demo was with that low power.. that's unreal, I can't even imagine what the Fusion15 Sentinels that are 4 dB more sensitive and with 500W would sound like...!

Last fall I worked on the Curve Frenzy and Vic used the Proscella P6Vs (mounted in columns per Dennis E's design) for the surrounds coupled with Mark Seaten's Catalysts for the mains. When I saw this kit I thought they may be a good match for the JTR speakers NYGF23 has in boxes for the mains. I thought of them in my mind as poor man's Proscellas.

The P6Vs

Saturday Update, WE HAVE A SCREEN!

Today was an interesting day. A few weeks back NYGF23 and I met with Snickers1 (Rich) who told us of his quest to not only make his own screen but to develop it with the goal in mind of starting his own screen frame company. We looked at his fabric and tested it with another member's JVC 4K projector. As a result NYGF23 put his name on the pre-order list. Last week Rich had all the elements of his plan in place, he built his own screen (See his thread) and immediately completed FALCON SCREEN's Serial #00001. Today he brought it up to NYGF23's project for delivery. A little early but NYGF23 has plenty of room to store it safely out of the basement for safekeeping.

Some pictures

Like a lot of screens Falcon uses the z-clip mounting brackets. Here they are on a minimalist screen wall frame.



You lay out the frame pieces and put it together.



Rich documents the assembly of his first clients screen, you always remember your first. Notice the small looking brackets, Those are a feature of his frames, they have cam levers that actually pull the frame corners tight together. They slip into channels from the sides and don't have to be pushed in from the ends. This simplifies assembly and locks the corners really tight.



After putting the frame together I pulled out a tape and as Rich held his breath, I measured the diagonals to check if the frame was square. Much to my surprise it was dead on. This hasn't always been the case with other frames I've assembled. I attribute this to the tightening nature of the Quick Connect clips. We test fitted the frame on the wall, It fits.



we added the AT fabric and hung the finished screen. Rich used the o-ring loop and post trampoline system for a quick assembly.





The tight corners that made me smile



Now we just need to finish the theater, I'm hiding the projector mount that came this week. Thanks Mike Garret at AVS.

Great progress and beautiful screen! I can't wait to check it out (properly this time) in person. wink.gif

Big, you know hiding the projector mount is useless, you'll need to keep the projector itself. And I bet NYGFan wants to fire it up BADLY!

Btw, what size is the screen again? And how far is the projector? You know mine is almost in the minimum distance for my screen size/ratio.

Where is the link to this screen thread ? I am very interested in it.
post #320 of 801
+1 me too!

Rich, sorry I was not home to greet you yesterday. I had to work a triple. I am soooo pleased with the screen and how it came out. I am most impressed with your attention to detail. The pictures are great, but to see it in person gives new meaning to the word excellent.

Landshark1 You are right, I cant wait to light up this screen with a good action movie. when all is said and done you are on the first list of movie tester at The Rockaway Cinema Theater...

Thanks Big for everything.

I like the simplicity of the screen assembly, but is there any concern of the o rings stretching over time?

no they are not being over stretched at all they are just putting the right amount of tension on the screen and they are spaced every 6 inches so no single o-ring is being over stressed or over tensioned.
i also provide several spares just in case someone wants to removed there screen because they are moving to a new location or have any other need to take it apart for transport.
post #325 of 801
Is there a website for this new screen frame and fabric? The frame assembly/design looks very similar to my Seymour frame. I'd be interested in learning more about it.
post #326 of 801
Spaceman, HFGuy, and J_P_A are not alone, though forum rules about this are sometimes funny.
post #327 of 801
Anyone have any information on the screen that was used?
post #328 of 801
I have word from a little bird that there should be something official within a week or so.

Now back to your regularly scheduled build thread.

Just let me know if you'll need any help regarding programming the lights & remote, or anything else.
