Since I have lived with similar, you really need to hurry up already. Giddy. Giddy I tell you, every time you play...pretty much anything.
Thanks. My 'giddy' comes and goes depending on my work travel schedule and two young boys as first priorities. Also trying to wrap up those outside fall projects before the weather turns. I am impatient by design, but also realistic about the hours I can squirrel away to work on this thing. Pace should pick up once the main part of the basement and the theater ceiling is complete. At this point, what's another year to finish, right?

I also faced the drivers into the wall so got an extra 5 or 6 dB boost at about 95Hz. Net result: Best bass I've had in my room - and easily reach >125dB peaks at even below reference.
So given the LFE fire power you will end up with, BE PREPARED!!!!
Like your setup, it's all about the overhead! Eliminates room modes, lowers THD...just makes the home theater experience much better when properly calibrated. Even with my planned LFE, it still won't compare to Rob Hahn's theater with his sixteen 24" subs and all the other balancing subs tucked here and there. It was an experience in brute force LFE with a clarity I've never experienced prior or since.
* Duratex is being delivered today. I might....*might*
...try to get everything sprayed tonight with all required coats and let cure for the next week before finishing these things and putting them into storage until I build the front baffle wall in the theater.
* I'll try to post some of the other 'historical' pics I have lurking in my photos. Not sure if anyone noticed, but I chamfered the front baffle roundover edge to the DIYSG boxes. I also discovered photos of the boxes with glazing putty for those of you interested. HIGHLY recommend glazing putty to fill the small holes, gaps and imperfections. It does a perfect job.
