I love them they are really comfy but they are pretty large Not sure how much room you have. I have no complaints there easy to put together and take apart I would not think twice about buying another setup
I appreciate the response and I am sure I will be going with Coasters.
I thought I would bring my thread back to the top and see if I can get myself motivated to get back to work in the HT. I have done nothing in there but watch movies since February. I also need to get cracking on the rest of the basement now that my supply of funds is being refreshed
Hey Scott, any new pictures with the trim up? You're room is very similar in style to mine and I was hoping to get a sneak peak at my room when it's done. I'm just finishing up my furring strips. Still haven't hung my projector though.
I agree with oman....but you have to have a thick skin! That Logan is brutal! Just be prepared... he will Logan you weather you like it or not!
No kidding. I got Loganed without even "technically" getting Loganed. Simply the fear of being Loganed caused me to comment that I was getting busy so as not to become Loganed. That fear was actually me being Loganed without even knowing it. It is a brutal world we live in
I have been mowing grass it seems for 4 weeks straight due to all the rain we have been having. I hate working 7 days a week but I have no choice in the matter as I cant control the weather. I think once the heat of summer kicks in things will slow down a ton and I can crank out some work in the rest of the basement once the theater room is finished.
I have not been loganed as of yet but he could be lurking
Scott, I don't know how I managed to not read your thread until now!
I enjoyed watching the progress, and also glad to see you didn't keep up that pace for the whole build! It makes me feel better about myself.
I absolutely love, love, love, the material choice you made. I'm going after something similar. Your entire thread will be helpful reference to me as I progress myself.
My screen is the exact dimensions you have, but I'm going with the seymourav material. Most say it is the same stuff. I was curious in your comments of the screen being a bit too large for front row. I've got mine mocked up on the sheetrock, and it is borderline. But I can't help but feel that future projectors will grow right into the 12' screen size! Although, your screen caps looked great! Any further comments on screensize now that you've lived with it for awhile?
Thanks Josh there is exactly 24" from back wall to screen which is just enough room for those big PSB's towers to sit about 6" from the screen
Amazing theater, you have there!
Have you considered (since you have an AT screen) replacing your center speaker with another matching PSB tower so you have the ideal three identical vertical speakers across the front? You will be in seventh heaven.
I don't have an AT screen, just a DLP RPTV right now (dang it!) and had not too long ago bought Paradigm Studio 100 tower speakers with matching CC-690 center. One reason I went with the Paradigms was that their big horizontal centers are almost timbrally the same as their towers (one thing Paradigm is known for doing). The CC-690 is huge; almost like a tower layed on its side! If I had the room for an AT front projection home theater I would have picked up another Studio 100 rather than the CC-690, but have not regretted it so far.
In your case instead of being almost matched you would be 100% sonically seamless across the front. The beauty of AT screens!
I have my winters free so plenty of time to work on it full time during Nov - feb. Since the statment of the screen being almost to big it has grown on me over the last few months but I still prefer the back row as I can see screen door in the front row
I wish i was done but the rain has kept me pretty busy this month so really no time to work on the HT
Thanks It was alot of fun & hard work but it was worth every minute. I am going to post up some new photo's soon I have been overly busy the last month with work and that has cut into my time working on the house
I only took a couple photos of this process not sure why I didn't include the sub flooring install too.
Very nice build thread and great HT. The photos are very helpful. Do you have any sub floor install photos remaining that you could post? Did you use more than one layer of subfloor or plywood over the Delta and foam? Did you attempt to address any flanking issues with your sub floor install? If so, how successful were you?
I'm planning to use many of the sound isolation techniques you describe in your build - DD/GG/RSIC and acoustic caulk and HVAC treatments. I've read in several threads that if you correctly build your walls and ceiling for sound isolation while not addressing the floor, that the sound - low frequency, I believe - will "flank" your wall and ceiling treatments and travel through the floor.
I saw your install post of the Delta and I wondered if in addition to treating the potential water issue, would it act as a decoupler of the floor? My thought being, if it decouples the floor then there would be no flanking. Not sure if I explained all of that correctly.
By the way, the single person drywall rig is really neat. Once I start, I imagine something like that will be necessary.
well the whole sub floor on top of the delta is screwed to the floor and I have had really no flanking issues with the sub but if I really have it cranked the dishs in the kitchen will vibrate a little bit other then that if I have the door closed I can barley hear it.
I mite have to do a small video with sound in then out with the door closed
