They are Ashley powered media chairs not sure if their home stories carry them or not. I will try to remember to get a tag off of them. They are exactly 36" wide. Each chair is an independent recliner i.e. they do not hook together and has two cup holders. The backs are really tall and comfortable I am 6’ tall and have no issues. I have seen them around for $399 but caught a close out at the PX for $127 each I asked how many do you have in stock and she said 7 so I bought them all and had my son who is also in the Army go to his PX and pick one up.

I know right latter in the year they had them on sale for 2 for the price of one which at the time was $399 my wife was in the PX here the other day and now they are $499 each guess I really got a sweet deal. I was just doing google search and they are way more than that on line. I guess when something gets popular the price goes up.

I have to modify my earlier to do list. The builder lent me his tractor so now mowing 5 acres is on the list. Some of the hay is chin deep so it may take a while.

Time for fabric remember I have the red carpet I am going to paint the columns and coffers to match the dark color in the carpet. Need some help or at least some encouragement.
1. All Red black for speaker covers I think this is too much red

2. Red on upper half of rear wall and side wall treatments with gray on bottom black for speaker covers still may be too much red give the carpet columns and coffer being red.

3. All Gray fabric with black speaker covers. This saves me money because the fabric is cheaper after 20 yards.

4. Same but extend the speaker covers even with the bottom of the treatments

5. Same but make the speaker covers gray using same acoustic fabric. I checked with Big and that is what they did in Beam and pole.

No offense, but #1 and #2 definitely make my eyes hurt. tongue.gif

Out of the choices presented, I like #5 the best. However, have you considered making the entire column out of one color of acoustic fabric instead of two? Or are you set on introducing red into the walls and ceilings in some way?

I agree Tim I think there is too much red in #1 and #2. #2 was my first concept but that was before the red carpet. I said what if the fabric was all one color and started playing with the gray and red. Remember the columns are drywall I was not going to put fabric on them. I was only going to put the fabric on the speaker grill area. I want to draw the red from the carpet up to the coffer which is why I want to paint them red. I am leaning toward #5 as well.

so that is 2 for #5 plus my friend Scott I have not asked WAF yet as she thinks I am almost done with the theater when I put the acoustic on rear wall I had left over microfiber panels which she said we can take back. I mentioned I will use them in the panels on the walls and clouds on the ceiling she had a cow and said we will never be done if you keep adding crap rolleyes.gif

They are simply consolidating their 2 product lines into one, using the Emotiva brand name on all products.

If you want one, call! I don't think they're updating online inventory, but there may be the product you want on the way. They took my order after they listed the amp as "sold out" because there is one last shipment from the factory coming at the end of this month - at least that's what I understood.

I think i would go with 3. I've got nothing against 4 and 5, but I would make the speaker grills the size of the speakers - just because I would...

proof


I also ordered a 125" x 64" screen materiel which will make a 2.0:1 constant image area screen from Seymour with O-rings and grommets. I will make the frame and do the minimalist wall this weekend if I need to I will do manual 4 way masking but I am hoping the contrast on the AE-8000 will do the job. We are only talking 5” on each side for 16x9 and top and bottom for 2.40:1.

Last week end we started on the window plug. For the window frame and sill the distance between back of OSB and the window studs = “IB-1 Clip + 7/8” Hat Track = 1 1/8” deep”. I framed the window by screwing a 2x2 ripped to 1" so 1 1/2" x 1" to the OSB/DW insuring I did not touch the window studs. This left a 1/8” gap which I filled with acoustical caulk. I used the pink insulation strip around the window studs and then attached ¾ inch MDF with screws to the 2x2 leaving 1/8” from window casing then added some acoustical caulk.

This is the before picture. Make sure when you do the hat channel you leave enough space on the channels that terminate at the window for the 2x2 so back them 2” away from edge of window stud.
20130525_162059.jpg
Here you can see the 1 1/8" gap between the OSB and window stud.

Here you see the pink insulation strips you can almost make out the ripped 2x2 on back side of OSB and drywall.
20130626_202352.jpg
20130629_104606.jpg
Here is the after with the plug setting on the sill. I did not put a conventional window sill and frame as I know that there would be a window plug. The sill is the same construction 2x2 internal and MDF. You can see the MDF sits flush with the drywall. Use some more caulk here as well. I took some really careful measurements cutting the OSB and drywall because you want the drywall and OSB opening to be 1/8" smaller than the window opening so the 2x2 once fastened to the back of the OSB is 1/6" inside the window stud. This gives enough space for the pink insulation strips.

Window plug
I used two ¾” 4x8 sheets of MDF to make the the plug darn they are heavy. I then built a frame out of MDF glued and brad nailed to the outside piece.

For reinforcement I split some 2x4s down to size and framed inside the MDF with two cross supports 16” on center from top and bottom. I left 1/2" space so that the plywood cap would sit flush to the MDF frame.


Used the rest of my pink and white itchy stuff


plywood cap

That was all for last week end if you are keeping track construction is now in the garage with sawing outside LOL carpet is in. Just means more trips up and down the stairs. Also note all the crap in the garage. eek.gif

This past weekend first I made the pilgrimage to HD for some lumber and materials for the front wall acoustic treatment and minimal screen wall. We put some flooring in the HVAC area of the attic so I can store all the Xmas stuff sorry no pics. Then we continued working on the plug. I used what was left of the green glue and then put the MDF lid on the plug which has a 3/4” over hang so that it will overlap and seal the MDF window frame.


Then I framed it with a 2x2s so that I can add the mineral wool for my acoustic treatment. I will put handles on after I add the mineral wool and staple on the material.


sliding in the window


Here are some finished shots


It took all three of us to cary the darn thing up the steps but it was diffently worth it.

First we painted the window side white I then put mineral wool in and covered with the black cloth

I framed out the front wall with 2x2s so I can add the mineral wool including the window.

You can see here the 2x2 around the window is set back 3/4" to acomindate the window plug top. This is where it is to tight I should have given it 1/8" extra all way around to acomindate the matieral on the plug and these 2x2s for the front wall.

I put the frabic on front wall and then I then beat the window into place it was really tight if doing over I would leave 1/8" all the way around for total of 1/4"

Sunday consisted of finding my garage and work shop than moving all the lumber from the garage to the work shop.

WAF says the lawn mower is supposed to be in work shop isn’t it. can't never win.

Also forgot to mention picked up a couple hundred bucks of mineral wool Friday for front treatments and base traps.

Can anyone guess what this 3/4" x 81/2" red MDF is going? My daughter got two coats of paint on Saturday and I sanded and put on a third coat yesterday.

Here is my daughter on my new toy a John Deere 425 zero radius to mow my 5 acres.

Looks good Bill. I bet you find the handles are unnecessary. That thing is never coming out, and if it does, you'll be wrestling it anyway.
