A couple of questions:
1) My intent is to add some fiberglas absorbers on the ceiling anyway. I assume that this will work well on OC703 covered w/ black burlap?
2) I have power to the ceiling already, and could run Cat5 cable in the conduit along w/ the HDMI for the projector. Is there any problem with a long (50ft) run for the controller?
Hmmm...seems like all I can think of for the moment. Thanks for any and all input.
about the 1. i dont know, since i never worked with that material.
I use MDF with velvet for the last job, and it turned out to be the best
to cover with, due to light absorbent velvet. And its realy black black black black. The only bad thing is, that you have to burn holes in the velvet , what is a litle more work, but make your live a lot easyer when you put the fibers thrugh, so you dont have to strugle. But not all velvets work.
About 2. no/yes, 50 feet cable run, is may to much, since you will need to close the loop on the new controllers. So for that i recomend storing the controller in the ceiling with the light units. The max is 20 feet from the controller to 1st light unit. But you can try, it depends on how many light units you plan to use.And if you want to use shooting stars, or sparcle light units, wich then need its own cable run to the controller.
Do you want to use tiles for drop in ceiling and if in what size.
It is always better to have big tiles than small ones.
