Awesome work fellas. Most excellent for sure. Love how everything came together just superb. Notice though that a completed theater = NYGF being MIA. Enjoy my friend you earned it.

Regards,

Wrapped up a few loose ends Tuesday, and the granite came, Over the last week. Snickers1 (Ethernet wiring) and Landshark1 (Equipment programing and set-up) made visits and contributed to the effort (It takes a village).

A bunch of final pictures, used my better camera and set the white balance, so the colors are closer to reality.

Looking awesome. Man just makes me sad how far I have came and how long I have to go, then to sell and do it all over again, ugh.

Incredible! Any listening impressions? With the JTRs, Minions, and dual VTF-15s(??) I bet it sounds loud and as good as it looks!

With eight of the Fusions no need for comfy barstools--I'd bet a few would stand at the back bar to watch a game.smile.gif

What great finish to a great ride. That is a beautiful theater. Go Giants! biggrin.gif
post #608 of 801
beautiful - congrats.

how tall is the ceiling?
post #609 of 801
Awesome.

I'm sure there have been demos throughout the build, but is there a movie picked out for the "official premier?" Heard lots of good things about Oblivion...

I see you guys finally decided to cover up both column next to the screen. It was a little distracting when the light is off watching a movie. wink.gif

Hey guys, I want to thank all of you for all of the nice comments and for following my thread giving me insight, ideas, and help. Most importantly, I would like to thank BIG for making my fantasy become a reality. As some of you know, this theater room was in limbo due to a few obstacles that stood in the way. I had to do some reconstructive surgery to the space before we actually started building the room. After the surgery the space went directly into recovery mode util BIG was able start doing what he does best "Building."

Prior starting, BIG and I had a conversation and we concluded that he and I could tackle the task of building the space. My skills were extremely weak, but BIG had no problem switching modes from builder to teacher. I learned so much about carpentry work that I've decided to never embark on it as an official occupation. Measuring, cutting, sanding, painting, lifting, carrying, reading, waiting, sweating, purchasing, purchasing, purchasing did I mention purchasing? Oh yeah purchasing.... And most of all making mistakes. It took 5 months and I honestly enjoyed just about every minute of the aforementioned, but I don't think I'd ever want to do it again. Special thanks to Landshark, snickers1 and Mike from AVS.

I will end this by saying if you are thinking of using BIG to help with your HT but are uncertain for whatever reason, I can give you a list of reasons why you should.

Knowledgable, fairly priced, very honest, punctual, dedicated to the task, his attention to detail is impeccable, good at improvising and very resourceful.
Not sure about you, but those are all the attributes one should expect/require from a builder. Prior to finding big, I was introduced to someone who tried to over charge me for a sketch that I was supposed to give to someone to build my space. This individual had no patience and he was extremely rude. I am elated that I was able to wait for big to become available.

Thanks for everything guys.... About to watch Oblivion with the wife in my new theater biggrin.gif
Last thing, I will be adding my equipment to my profile ASAP

Landshark, I was able to notice the slight light reflection while sitting in the second row so yes we decided to cover them up. I have to call you later this evening and fill you in on a few changes.

Yes, wrapped a piece of 1/4 plywood with the fabric and Velcro in place.

Oblivion was pretty good. Great sound and picture. Story line could've been better, but overall it was good.

Thanks I was looking at buying this fabric in the gray and then the speaker cloth from Rose Brand for my columns and to cover my front wall acoustic treatment but if this works that would save me a step. It is also cheaper when you by 20 yards brining the price closer to the Rose Brand.

Follow up question do you think the gray will have any issue covering the 703 with FSK on my rear wall or will I need to pant or cover it with something else like brown paper first?

Great job NYG and Big. It's a truly amazing space. You have given me the shot in the arm I need for the final push on my project.
post #622 of 801
Thanks AVTEXAN, we all need a little push at times.
post #623 of 801
Sorry if I missed the answer to this: What acoustic treatment did you put behind the fabric panels between the columns?

Your theater looks amazing! Great color scheme.
post #624 of 801

linacoustic
post #625 of 801
Thanks Dlbeck
post #626 of 801
How does the room sound with the acoustic treatments that you've done? A little too alive? Dead or just about right? I'm going to start building my room soon and debating on the type of treatments to use and how much to allocate in the budget. Just do linacoustic behind the panels or go with Quest panels?

Beautiful room!! Very envious.

So nice...I said it twice
post #629 of 801
Incredible. Big, you should write a book. I feel like I could practically use this thread as a "how to". There seems to be enough detail in all the pictures, but I'm sure there are gotchas...

If you don't mind me asking, what does construction of something like this cost (ballpark)? Not for the speakers/av gear/screen; I'm just talking the 2x4s, drywall, paint, trim.... you know the "room", no labor just materials cost.

I recently bought a house and I'm considering attempting a build like this myself.

Damelon put a pretty detailed summary of what he spent in his thread. You could also reach out to NYGF23 to see if he has a summary.
