Well I finally got around to actually cutting some panels in between trying to get the theater finished up for a family get together end of this month.
Here are the details:
Cabs are 17.25" W x 36.5" H x 13" D (not including 2nd baffle). There will be an internal divider bringing the total height down to 31.5". I did this as I preferred a single tower as opposed to putting them on stands. This will also allow me a separate place to mount the xovers. Internal volume should come in at approximately 2.90 cubic feet. This isn't finalized and can be added to or removed depending on how I shift around the divider.
Power will be provided by some form of external amplification. I decided to go with 4 ohm at the last minute to match the dual TD6 height arrangement, so I'm pretty sure the 3009 won't love me if I push the volume when feeding a full wall of 4ohm speakers. I'm leaning towards either a used Parasound Halo or Outlaw Audio for sale. I feel either will provide enough juice to do the deed.
Xover will be provided by none other than Matt. I really can't express enough appreciation to that guy for answering endless questions and taking time out of his day to do the testing and building to make this build a reality. I also want to thank John, Jake, and Erich for being instrumental in the build, buys, and logistics for also making this come together. This is a great family here in the DIY forum.
Before getting on to the build, which isn't very exciting at the moment, lol, here is the current progress on the theater. I snagged Carps other SMS1 so I'm currently in the process of setting up the SI's for a true stereo setup taking advantage of my 3009's dual sub EQ feature.
I apologize in advance for the crappy pics. Too lazy to dig out the DSLR so you get my cheap point and shoot.
Screen wall coming together. Finished wrapping the upper and lower panels in GOM. Just need to finish up the side panels. Screen frame is done. I've been waiting to stretch the fabric until I'm done as it's easier to pull the screen on and off without the material. Makes it a one man job as opposed to two.
I said I wouldn't mount the projector on this build (unlike the last one), until it was finished. It's still boxed up. Just finishing up the hushbox and mocking up cutouts for the 2.35 lens.
Little side angle to show columns. The space I had to work with was less than optimal (128" wide), so I wanted to keep the acoustic panels as narrow as possible. I even decided to flush mount the surrounds and rears into them to save as much space as I could.
Lower shot with lighting and trim work.
Oh yeah, the obligatory cab shot. Exciting, isn't it.
