I plan to cover the rear wall with 1" linacoustic and then covered in black expo for a finished look as you will be able to see back there when I have the lights on

Woolly, I checked out your furniture lady on Ebay and saw some nice stuff. My inlaws are in Arkansas so I checked the distance from them to her, it's quite a drive but it's doable. My question is how did you transport them all back to Omaha?

I rented a small enclosed trailer from Uhaul down in Springfield. My inlaws live in Springfield so I had her delivery guy drive them up to there place and I drove down and picked them up was a extra $200 but saved me 8 hours of driving.

I have a brand new elite 120" diagonal bright white screen for sale if you know of anyone looking

WOW>>>I haven't been on the forum for about 4 months and come back to many new threads and great construction photos. Scott - I just spend some time catching up on what you have been up to and everything looks great!! I can't wait to see more photos of the room.

Did you consider talking with bpape about acoustical treatment? I originally did the 1" linacoustic on the back wall and after all the hard work and effort you are putting in, I would highly (highly, highly) recommend talking to bpape or other acoustical expert. You will not be disappointed.

I second this statement. Bryan is outstanding to work with.

Aha! Another Nebraska HT'er!
Dan's documentary on this forum of his build was one of my initial inspirations when I first started this darn hobby in December of '05. (Wow! Has it really been that long ago?!?!?!)

Didn't he sell his house/HT a few months back? I wonder if he is going to build another one in the new home......

I think Dkaps also now does some acoustical/sound testing and sets up other home theaters. I just might have to look him up again...
Best,

AH! Very good. Just checking. I thought I would try to help save you the time and frustration I had with my sound treatment experience.

Hello All

Well I finished up my columns this week and got them in place yesterday for a test fit. I like the way they turned out they will be covered in a black fabric and trimmed out in oak. I built the back 4 with a speaker box for the Jamo dipole in-walls speakers I just got. I will cut the holes for them later today

I just want to say how much I hate MDF the dust from cutting this stuff is unreal. I did all my cuts outside in the cold

I also received the last of my wall treatment fabric and ripped most of the boards for my furring strips so once those are installed I will start to treat the walls with the linacoustic









post #255 of 1213
Awesome. Great job Scott. Is that MDF dust all over your yard and the neighbors yards too!!???

Yes when I was done I cranked up the backpack blower for a quick cleanup

I also think putting up the green fabric is going to be like wall papering as it has a repeat pattern that I surly want to match up

HA HA! They are going to be mad!
post #258 of 1213
Hey Scott,
I hope those jamo's sound as good as they look I've been reading all these construction threads for about two years now. I learn more here on AVS than any where. anyway your room size is exactly the same as mine will be. My wife and I just got our house plans back from the drafter and so reading this thread is vary inspiring to read. I have a theater room set up in the house that we own right now but not this big. when we do finaly sell and begin our new build I will post my theater build on here to. The boxs you just built, are you going to cover the opening with Gom and what about cotton fill?

Rob

2 years of reading and this is your first post

Thanks Rob I hope they sound good also I'm going to pick up the new Bluray movie Shoot 'Em Up in DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 for one of the first movies to watch to see how well the Jamo's do. Yes I do believe I will stuff the speaker boxs with some fuzz. The columns are going to be covered in oak veneer and I plan on painting the speaker grills and frames flat black
I hope once you see some screen shots of the 2.35 SmX in action you will think of going CIH for your room also


here are a few photo's to keep your intrest I hope to have all the furring strips done by tuesday and start getting the linicoustic up. I pulled my seating back out for the 5th time














post #260 of 1213
I painted my Atlantic inwalls to match my room as well The speakers came with a cardboard template that fit just inside the opening so I could use a sprayer. I thined out the paint so the grill holes would'nt get painted over, worked out well. I'll see if I can post a picture. (first time)??

lookin' good dude! I think those Jamo speakers will be awesome.

W00lly,
Just curious how much for the screen? are you going to put it on ebay I know someone that might want it.
post #268 of 1213
Scott, columns are looking great.

Heh, I know you've been checking in on my thread too, so you know I'm totally with you on the MDF dust thing. I had to do all my cuts inside in a 20x8x7 room wearing a respirator - it was like zero visibility in there after a long rip.

MDF and drywall. Two things I'm 100% GLAD are pretty much over.

I totally agree with you on the MDF dust! Pretty much everything in the garage is covered in it, including my dog!

I finally bought a nice table saw that has a hookup in the back for a Wet Dry vac hose, Dust is very miminal now while cutting MDF.

Yes, I have a table saw with vacuum and it's terrific for cutting out the dust - probably 95% better.

Unfortunately, it just wasn't humanly possible for me to rip full sheets of the stuff on it, especially in such a small space. I guess I could have ripped the first few and then transferred to the other saw, but once you get going, you just want to get done
