Big Mouth In DC's beautiful black/grey theater - Page 53

post #1561 of 1618
Nooooooo! I just finished the thread over the past couple of days, now I have nothing to read.

What about the buttocks?

Stupid phone autospell! I typed buttzooka not buttocks.
post #1564 of 1618
My first good laugh of the morning.
post #1565 of 1618
The buttzooka is gathering dust, I did pick up a wireless connection device when Outlaw had them on sale. But then I also have eight 15 inch MFW drivers waiting for boxes. Problem is my idea generator far exceeds the factory floor capacity.

One other problem is when I gave it a test run with a clip form Pearl Harbor my wife yelled down the stairs that I was shaking the house. All from adding two 8 inch drivers to my existing system. When I built my basement theater I was young and naive. Green Glue wasn't on the market so I have a large room without a fully executed sound containment strategy.

Sniff, sniff. Do I smell BIG's Beautiful Black/Grey Theater 2.0?

Of course, with all this talk of buttocks, that may not be the best choice of words.
post #1567 of 1618
Would he love to build another? I'm sure of it. Could he handle tearing out all of his previous hard work? Doubtful. I think BIG controls his urges by build new theaters for other people. wink.gif

My secret is out.

I often get yelled at by my wife when I play anything with deep bass. Before the navy sent me to Cambodia, I was running a sealed Maelstrom-X 18" subwoofer (24" cube enclosure) and an old Paradigm PDR 12 sub in my basement HT (loosely defined as an HT, really an open basement with a 5.2 setup and a 110" screen mounted on the wall). Unfortunately, the speakers are very close to the HVAC system, so sound gets into the ductwork and transmitted throughout the entire town home. Not awesome!

Perhaps when the Navy decides to return me to the US I will move back into my town house in Frederick, MD and I can arrange for you to give an assist visit to develop a removable front wall for the space. I need to do something beyond just hanging a screen on the wall; the light reflecting off the ceiling is distracting but wife will not let me paint it dark as the space is also used for my daughter’s play area. But as this is a temp home (when retire will not stay on the East coast) so everything has to be removable with minimal repair.

Here is my totally stupid question of the day: Does the front stage serve any purpose besides looks?

Thanks BIG...I had done a search but missed the link to the sand filled stage. When I retire and build a real HT I will add a stage.

This is still probably one of my favorite theaters on this site............Are you controlling anything with smartphones?
post #1574 of 1618
I think his smartphone has an alarm set to wake him up every 15 minutes throughout the movie.

Zing!

I've never fallen asleep in a movie. Last night it was Prometheus.

Mark, I've experimented using my Ipad as a controller. With a cheap app I can control my receiver and directTV box. Roomie Remote.

What do you use for a remote control as a daily driver these days ?
post #1580 of 1618
still on the Logitech 890 but I have a refurbished 900 sitting in a box that I intend to put to use along with some Insteon switches I picked up during the last sale. I have so many things I want to do when I get around to it, This weekend I replaced a water softener, I also have a bunch (8) of MFW15 drivers waiting for boxes and a 3000 watt amp ready to drive them. My plans far exceed my ability to devote the time. Just like it is hard to finish the basement bathroom when I have four other perfectly good bathrooms in the house.

Lol. You remind me of my dad so much. He's not as techie with gear and electronics but he's always doing some construction project.

He had 4 bathrooms (three full) and just built a 5th outside by the pool. That project included digging a huge trench for the sewer across the yard... Lol

Keep in mind its just him and my mom. My brother (32) and I (35) are both moved out, married with our own houses long ago.

There's always a project you can do- and your time to do them is always lacking compared to your imagination or desire to do them.

Trust me...when you get to be your Dad's age (or Big's!) YOU'LL want 5 bathrooms, too.

Ouch!

That's what the Depends are for.
post #1585 of 1618
Don't give me ideas, If enough money can be raised I'll strap on a diaper and take a picture. I think mid 6 figures is what it would take.
post #1586 of 1618
Any plans to change or update your personal theater ? If you did it again anything you might change or do different ?
post #1587 of 1618
I've mentioned this many times but I wouldn't do an open concept again, and what was designed as a large entertaining space has relatively low utilization, I would now prefer a Private Screening Room concept. I'm also tired of the color scheme.

Sounds like it's time for a refresh already eek.gif (joking wink.gif )

Actually, think about it. If BIG decided to tear down his theater and make a new one... how amazing it could be? I don't know if I could ever stomach tearing out my theater, even if I REALLY wanted a new one. He put so much work into it, especially his bar!

It's possible he could even get free product tie-ins from a lot of people who do business on here since everyone knows him, it would be like free advertising for them too.

So if he did it, would all of us as a collective need to go to his house and help him?

I certainly would if I was, you know, done with mine.
