Let's bring this one back to life! Anymore pics of new screen walls? I sure could use the inspiration!
Thanks

Here's mine before covering with black speaker cloth--also hadn't finished the fiberglass board across the top.

Finished with masking at 2.35:1 ...


Finished with masking at 16:9...


Without the false-wall pannels...

And more pictures for my "HT Ideas" Folder. 2 questions.
1) What kind of screen?
2) Is you masking system on a sliding track of some kind, i.e. when you want 2.35, you just slide the side panels in? More pics/detail on that would be awesome.

Thanks,

Marshall

1) The screen is a 127" SMX acoustically transparent screen. I love it!
2) The masking is actually four-way (top, bottom, and sides). It is on rollers rather than fixed panel slides. I used rollers because there are doors on both sides of the screen to give access to the area behind the false wall and I didn't have room for sliders. The rollers only take up about 5 inches of space on each side. When I get some time, I may do a thread with more detail over in the DIY Constant Height section of the forum. I've got to say though that I really like the 4-way masking.

I'm using a Panasonic AE1000U projector with a Prismasonic H-FE1500R anamorphic lens.

That front wall and masking system looks amazing...I would really like to know how you did it and how it works in details...simply amazing! Please post more pics and more info!
post #160 of 857
how he did it is by paying the big bucks!
post #161 of 857
Real nice Scott. Any chance you might darken the ceiling? Great space.
post #162 of 857
Thank you for the kind comments. Everything is DIY. The masking probably cost me around $500 with all of the trial and error, including wasted materials and restarts.

I don't want to hijack this thread with all the details of my project. I think this thread is pretty cool with just pictures of a lot of different screen walls. I will start a separate thread next week in the "Display Devices/DIY Constant Height" section on my masking system.

Two things I wish I had done differently are the color of the ceiling, and the color of the carpet. Darker would have definitely been better! I will probably either paint the ceiling or else put in a black fidelio velvet star-ceiling. The carpet will have to wait for now.

Hijack nothing! Post in this thread, or post in a new thread, but POST!

This is good stuff and WE WANT DETAILS!

I will start a separate thread next week in the "Display Devices/DIY Constant Height" section on my masking system. (I've also promised Tedd White with the Green Glue Company that I would start a thread on my sound isolation efforts.) I had hoped to wait a while as I have been pretty busy, but I'm getting a number of private messages in addition to the questions here.

Awesome theater!

What were the dimensions?

Have you considered with av123's recent awesome sales changing the bigfoot center with another matching Rocket tower for a completely seamless soundstage? As good as the bigfoot is, an identical tower would be the ultimate in acoustically transparent bliss.

For black paint on the ceiling, I would try Behr's Mickey Mouse Ears flat enamel. Good stuff.

Scott,
What about a rug on a rug. There's lots of nice throw rugs and that would help a lot in front of the chairs and screen and it's relativly cheap.

You have an awesome theater Art! I'm impressed every time I see it.
post #169 of 857
Art - its interesting that the lights that shine on the screen get absorbed when the masking is in place, maintaining the effect. I now wish I had put those lights in during my build.

Vistascope is the right name for that screen.

Thanks! You know the lights were designed for the original 16x9 screen but they look great with the new screen that is 3' wider.

This probably belongs in the game room forum but I built it before I ever knew about this fabulous information highway of a forum. HT 2.0 dedicated theater is under construction and should be finished by next summer.

Here's an AutoStitch pic of mine...

About 90% done, still need to put carpet on stage and get stand for centre (or fix centre to soffit)
Not sure about final name for HT.

What is going on the right side of your ceiling? Is that a false ceiling?

I as thinking about do this in my basement, but I haven't found a good method. I was thinking drop ceiling, but my basement ceiling is only 7'1".

Can you give me some detail on the ceiling?

Here is my screen wall at what I would consider to be about a 95% completion rate...for this phase at least. The screen going up is a 110" 16:9 Carada Brilliant White Precision model.

I'm new at this photostitching thing so my apologies for the less-than-stellar quality.
