I have finished my 1099's an am building a pair of volt v8. Have you had a chance to listen to the volts yet? I am kind of curious to see what you think of them.

I have, I thought it sounded good for a driver sitting in the box with no poly fill. I think once I fill the box with poly and secure the driver down will be better. I feel that I will not be disappointed with them at all.

I'm still waiting on a replacement baffle so I can finish my volt 8's. I'm hoping that when they get finished they will complement the 1099's. I am also very curious to see how they compare to the 1099's. If I like how they sound I'll order two more 8's or maybe the 10's for the surround backs. Building these speakers is kind of addicting.

Progress Update

Chipping away, one little thing at a time. Columns are in place and secured.

Started the stone work. I add another layer of drywall behind the stone to space it out more. I thought it set to deep between the columns. I painted the second layer with some earth tones as I am not going to be grouting between the stone and wanted to cover up the whiteness of the DW.

And I have installed the trim around the return. Still need to paint the grill.

This build rocks. Definitely "borrowing" some of these ideas.

Speaker shelves in place and painted. The complete structure was put together with screws and 2 x 6. The top sill plate is attached to the soffit which is decoupled and the bottom attached to the stage which decoupled from the wall as well. I will be filling the cavity and around the speakers with insulation.

my speakers are 14 1/2" in depth and with the tight surroundings in the corner, I made a pyramid type shelve to support the speakers. I am going to secure a piece of 1/2" MDF over this that the speaker will rest on.

One thing about doing things yourself, you can make sure it is right. I started the 3rd phase of crown and with the columns being square to the wall and to the soffit, it is a real joy to putting crown up. It is will go up nicely.

you can also see that the stone is coming long nicely as well

If you are wondering what I am going to do about the outlet, my thought is to Velcro a rock there. Still accessible with out the look of an outlet in the middle of my wall

I'm surprised at the lack of feedback. This rebuild is impressive.

following as well- outstanding so far. I like the stone wall. I originally thought of this for my room, but my wife thought I was nuts. I will have to show her these pics.

Lovin' the stone! Will you be adding grout in between? Or just leaving it stacked naturally? Great interesting build like the Rustic Dream Theater. Subscribed.

Hey Thanks. We are going the no grout route. We had did a montage of colors on the backerboard, thinking we would go groutless. It does not look bad as is but you can see some of the white mastic in a few areas, but I don't think you will see it at all unless you are on your knees looking for it

I ran into a small snag trying to finish up the crown, the back wall over the door had a protruding bow. Upon investigating, the stud for some reason was not flush with the top plate. So I cut the nails, pulled the stud flush and reattached with screws. Thankfully I could access this through the drop ceiling in the hall. A little drywall repair and will put up the last piece this week





Continued to finish up the stone, and start to fit the ledge over the stone. Hope the stone work will be wrapped up this week so we can schedule the carpet for next week.



Also ran the front speaker/sub cables, just so I could cross something off the list this weekend.

How far is your front chairs to your screen? Looks like around 9' based on the plans in post 1? Wouldn't that ratio be under 1, approx. .86? Worried about that being too close?

Post #65 has a revised plan. Seats will be right around 10.5', screen is 120" wide.

Stone Complete

A standing ovation for my wife, who wrapped up the stone work this weekend, it really turned out nice. She showed great patience and diligence from start to finish and it was a huge help.


Top ledge for the stone is cut and is in the painting stage and should be installed this week
Crown is complete except for filling in nail holes and caulking the corners
Also, as you can see, the door was installed. The trim on the outside of the room is up and the inside is also cut and in paint. Will install that this week also.


Carpet is paid for and scheduled for next Saturday.

Hey, thanks Jeff.
Feeling real ambitious this week, so I hope to start on the acoustical panels as well. Nyal, with Acoustic Frontiers as drawn up a layout, so we will see.

Looking great! What did you use on your MDF columns to hide seams and nail holes. Are you putting cloth over them?

Hey thanks.
I used MH Ready Patch, found @ HD or Lowes and Sherwood sealer from Sherwin Williams. It worked well, although you could probably use another brand of sealer and save some money the SW stuff works really well but little expensive.


No cloth, we are going to leave them painted for now. We used a coarse brush which left a rough finish to them for more of a rustic look/finish

The sealer goes on before you paint correct? Makes the MDF paint more like drywall? Also how did you hand your 4mil plastic to the duct liner on your front wall? I put my first layer up tonight but was not sure how to attach the plastic. I am sure a few screws would probably work.

yes sealer before the paint. I put two coats of sealer on and sanded each coat.


For hanging the plastic and the liner, I used Plastic Cap Roofing Nails from Lowes. They worked great. They were 1 3/4" long and used just enough to hold up the first layer of liner and the plastic and then when I put up the second layer, it secured everything well. I will end up using the capped nails to hang the Ultratouch on the walls for my acoustical panel as well.

Super nice theater for sure!

Love the stone too (although I might be a bit biased on that ).

Which manufacturer did you end up going with on the ledge stone? Looks awesome!
