Sandmans Home Theater Construction Begins! - Page 120

post #3571 of 3744
Hey Tony, you should read the entire thread, it will only take .... 2 days!
The short story is that the Martin Logans were switched to the Klipsch mid way through the project as the ML were not the best choice for high energy HT use. Ruben was never satisfied with the KW120's impact so went with the Danley instead.

No go read the whole thread

Forgive me... I have to get SOME work done during the day too. Is there an audio version of this thread published? Maybe I can listen to it on my commute?

Thanks for the summary Moggie. I'll be interested to hear some specifics from Ruben on the KW120 and the Danley then.

You know what! On second thought, I'm going to make it a weekend project to get through this thread line by line.

Edit: Read to post #2700 in 3.5 hours.... Eyes bloodshot and 1:30 a.m. !!!!

Hey SandmanX,

Brilliant HT! I was wondering if you had any pictures of how you ended up mounting your projector? Did you end up putting it in the hush box like you had planned?

I'm trying to work out what to do with my projector at the moment. I'm not sure if I should try to hide it in the soffit, a hush box or just attach it to the roof.

Cheers,
Simon

Ruben, no need to comment further on the Klipsch's. I'm catching all the discussions you've already had. And I've had mine long enough now to know that I don't need a second opinion! They are awesome and don't think mine will ever be replaced!
post #3576 of 3744
I am new to forum. Thanks for all this info.
post #3577 of 3744
Ruben, thanks for inspiring so many of us to 'take it to the next level' in our builds. In my case the thanks is double, as I felt your design was worth duplicating. The old saying about imitation/flattery certainly applies in my case.

Cheers,
Jason

Does anyone know if SandmanX's more detailed blog of pictures is currently up anywhere? The last posting regarding it in this thread seems to have been that it was in the forum at smxscreen.com, but there doesn't appear to be a forum there.

Hey!

I don't know if you still check this thread, SandmanX, but I've been a lurker here for a while and finally signed up....

I'm doing a High Quality 3D render of your Home Theatre and I would love it if I could get in contact with you and ask some questions to you directly.

Mainly things like exact dimensions, high quality photos of your carpet, walls, and chairs for texture mapping, and other things of that nature.

If you could get in contact with me or point me to a place where we can chat, I would be eternally grateful! I went ahead and send you a message through this forum but I wasn't sure if you check it anymore.

PM me when you receive this! Thanks!

You should try to reach him through his business.

Yes, and but only if he puts in the planned 2.35 HT2.0 screen

Awesome theater. Do you have any cose-up picks of the carpet? It looks like a pattern I have seen in another thread, but I can't tell for sure.
Thanks
post #3585 of 3744
It is the Masland Quadrate, it comes in various colors. I have gray his is black. Sandman had a guy dye all the little stripes red by hand. (you can't make this $hit up)

BigmouthinDC- thanks for the link. Now that I've seen it closer, thats not the one I thought it was, but a nice option nonetheless. I've browsed about a hundred threads looking for the pattern I saw earlier this week to no avail. Guess i'll have to keep looking since I was too dumb to bookmark the thread when I saw it.

Yeah, it is a little too late to change which theatre I'm going to render. I tried calling the company but I'm not sure they know what's going on concidering I don't even know what Sandman's real name is. Does anybody know of a way I can contact him directly? Maybe an email or a first name?

Thanks!

He's not hard to find... are you for real? Just look for SMX and be sure you clear your render through him (Ruben).

Ruben Dallas isn't it? Or maybe Paul Rubens.

Just ask for Ruben, but good luck. To the best of my knowledge, he owns and runs the company, so they should know who you are talking about.
post #3593 of 3744
No...His name is Ruben Ortiz. Find his number on http://www.smxscreen.com/contact-us.html

Those were both movie references [5th element, pee-wee herman], I'll try and limit my humor in the future.

Yes, I figured that much. Humor is always welcome. I was just trying to help the noob

Ruben

I see you put a lot of the pics back up.
Thank you
post #3597 of 3744
This is one of the best looking room I've seen so far on this forum.
post #3598 of 3744
Great Job Ruben!!
post #3599 of 3744
#3598 posts read in about a week, now I finally get to post in it! I think I have to give the now cliched "Amazing job!", etc etc..

Here is David Bott co-owner of the AVSForum with Ruben. The video titled AVSForum presents to Ruben Ortiz is here for everyone that needs to know... It is a video from CEDIA a months back.
