Wow. Looks great and I like the colors.

Why did you paint the walls if you're going to cover them up with panels?

A good portion of the walls will be covered with panels, but a lot will also be exposed.

Thanks.

Picking out carpet is not as easy as I thought it would be. Style, Pricing, padding, square footage!!!! eek.gif

Don't forget it always looks different in actual lighting conditions, check out a sample and bring it home.

Couldn't agree more.  Also, if considering a pattern, look for pictures of an open area or entire room online.  Sometimes it will look different when repeated over a very large space vs just staring at a sample.

So your running a 7.2 system? Did you list an equipment list yet? And your side surrounds are firing at the back row? Shouldn't they be more between the first and second row of seating?

there are two side surrounds due to the length of the theater.

NYGiantsfan, 

 

I wanted to make sure you saw my PM.  Let me know if you need more info.

We did not use MDF on the walls just molding.
Fabric panels yet to be installed on top, dark brown surrounded by frames painted the cream color.

Make sure you detail the frame building...NYGF can take double the pictures for the purpose of his own learning too.

So is it basically a 9 channel theater or the sides are wired together? I guess with direct firing speakers you would want them pointing at the heads of both rows?

does that mean 9.2?

It may be 9 speakers + 2 subs, but it is still 7.2 if they send the same signal to two sets of sides. 9.2/11.2 only use front high or front wide

I'd argue it's 7.1, since since each sub gets the same signal as well - but I'm picking nits. For another way to think of it, you get 5.1 or 7.1 at the megaplex - but they may have dozens of loudspeakers.

True there. Though certain receivers that have dual sub outs will calibrate and process output to each individual sub, (Crossover, Polarity Gain, Levels) which is where the .2 usually comes from. Audessey directly manipulates this, and does so individually for each subwoofer. Usually when people add additional sides, they just replicate the signal, which means they would have the same volume/delay and are calibrated "Jointly", meaning both sets of sides would play at the same time during a "test tone".

Side note. A stand alone DSP, such as a DCX2496, MiniDSP, etc...can easily manipulate the .1 (LFE) channel into X separate signals for stand alone EQ.

For instance, my MiniDSP 10x10 can manipulate one (1) incoming signal into eight (8) outgoing signals, which will allow the user to tweak to their hearts content... Starts to get complicated when attempting something of that magnitude.

However, if NYGF was to have two subs placed in different locations of his theater and they were at different distances from the LP (say one on his front stage 15' away and one behind him nearfield 2' away), a device such as the MiniDSP could be of assistance (assuming one didn't have an XT32 enabled AVR).

XT32 does not eq multiple subs separately, and only sees/processes the dual sub outs as one channel. There is no separate distance control, phase, eq handled...
He would need SubEQHT

I was under the impression that all AVR's with XT32 had the SubEQ feature? My apologies if that is not the case.

Regardless of AVR capability, IMO I feel anyone would benefit from a product like the MiniDSP given its overall flexibility.

Are you talking about something like that ^ or something else ?
post #442 of 801
MiniDSP is specifically this

www.minidsp.com

There is other equipment that has DSP functionalities built into them like a Behringer DSP1124, Behringer iNuke amps or the Crown XTI series amps (I think.)

Yes, I did get your PM, been real busy at work so I have not had a chance to get back to you. I did look at the site you recomended.

Big,

How far away are your risers from surrounding walls and do you anchor the riser to the concrete floor in any way?

Thanks,
Schlemstar
post #448 of 801
NYGF23 - Your theater looks great! We were thinking of going with a dark brown/cream color palette for our media room (thread coming someday), and I think yours just sold me on the idea!
post #449 of 801
Thanks Schlemstar. At first we thought it would be too dark and then I said the hell with it and decided to go for it. The trim work really made it popp. I am Hopi g to have everything complete real soon.
