Landshark1, I hadn't forgot this offer, in fact I was practically counting on it in my work plan. Right there on page 34 of the project plan, See item 167. Call Gary to make all this $hit work right. NYGF23 followed your lead and has the same Receiver, Projector, Insteon wall switches and Remote . I can wade my way though it but you can probably do it in your sleep!biggrin.gif

Rich you can't see it in the pictures but that one side column on the right ahead of the riser ended up just not looking right and it went to the scrap pile.

Another work till you drop 8 day seven night adventure in MD. Couple of days help from the Drywall guy doing some of the trim, NYGF23 got a chance to experience the joy of putting on gray primer and here we are at the end of today. A week ago it was a bare drywalled room.

Looking mighty impressive gentlemen. I really like the scale of the columns in that room. Guessing we are going to be seeing some carpet samples soon?
post #339 of 801

post #340 of 801

You guys made more progress in a week than I did in a year.  Looks fantastic.

In a room with no obstructions I would have gone with slightly less depth on the columns, I would have semi recessed all the surrounds. As is we wanted the maximum width room so the support poles and speakers dictated column size.

the room still seemed very wide to me he is doing two rows of 4 seats ?

Great progress guys! I like the size of the columns, gives them some presence. Have you decided on a color scheme yet? Also I assume some type of fabric panel above the wainscot?
post #344 of 801
Great progress! Yet another theater turning out beautiful.
post #345 of 801
Looks fantastic, is that paint on the top just the gray primer? Already looks great, and it's just taking final shape. Your columns and trim really bring elegance and structure to the space, I absolutely love it. Are you guys going to end up doing painted walls and not fabric walls, then?

Every time I see your rear riser, I think "man, that thing is huge". Are you guys doing a bar, or a 3rd row, or is it just extra space for comfort?
post #346 of 801
I am curious can't wait to see the final pictures and color scheme. It's looking great!
post #347 of 801
Looking good! I like the added depth on the riser steps. How deep did you make them?

Less than the chair arm deep.

Did you use MDF to build the columns ? I see the wood is a different color.

yes MDF, it looks darker because I applied a sealer so that they will paint well.
post #357 of 801
Awesome progress, looking fantastic. Really coming together and the screen looks great.

Was the MDF for sound quality reasons.... or.... was it for the smoother finished looked when painted? Curious your decision to use it.

IMHO, MDF is the quietest of the available choices for building columns, there is a reason why it is used in a large portion of high end speaker projects. It is heavy $hit. It also paints up nicely.

I've built a bunch of car subwoofer boxes from it back in the1990's (I was a kid) when I was into car audio. I still have the speaker design cookbook laying around by Vance Dickason, and I am certain it's of late 1990's vintage with the red top cover.

I remember MDF was the choice back then for that reason. And yes- It's heavy. A full sheet is a little more than I can or want to carry, I'd need help. lol. Did you use that for the speakers too ?
