It is 90 outside with a low tonight of 74. What to do?


Outside movie night.
Three ported Volt 10's, two Volt 6's and two Picowreckers add a 144' screen and lets call it a fun time.

I had thought of that. I was just lazy and the hand trucks were fast and cheap at wallyworld.

Tonites movie is a trial run. I have a NUC hooked up with Kodi that will play a whole series of things before the movie starts. Cartoons, trivia, refreshment ads, movie rating , upcoming trailers, a 20 min. intro leading up to the movie. I run a self storage business and will be offering free movie on a Fri/Sat nite for my tenants.
Trial movie is Mission Impossible Fallout.\


I have to thank @b curry for all the info he helped me with.

Nothing I can do about TX but for 55 years lived in WI, so I an enjoying the weather TX has compared to the cold of WI.

Just finished now and it sounded GREAT and as it became darker looked awesome. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Even had a few cars stop by the road and gawked.

Was a fun time and a great project. The ported Volt 10's along with the Volt 6's as surrounds did not disappoint. Need to do a little tweaking on the picos. Clipped the nuke3k a few times.

BCRSS,

How well did the picowreckers work outside? It looks like your set worked very well!

The pico's sounded very good with the added bass needed for outside. Granted there was no tactical feeling and I will be resetting my HPF to 28 instead of the 35 now. I feel this will add just a touch more authority down low.

I had so much fun last nite will do it again tonite. Setup takes about 15 minutes and takedown about the same. Longest part is getting the projector lined up correctly.

You are always welcome for Movie night. Maybe bring your Sweet 24's along and let them stretch their legs a bit. I have a bobcat to help unload them.
