Can't wait to see the finished product; this is a unique theatre to say the least.
Great work!

Beautiful room, congratulations. Pretty much everything looks flawless, the attention to detail is immediately obvious. The ceiling in particular is stunning. And having the speakers visible makes the room even more special. Congrats!

Yeah, there's just something about seeing a grilless speaker.....must be some sort of primordial subconscious thing? What can I say, I just like nekid speakers. There, I said it. I'm out.

rms8,

Just found your thread via your sig from your comment in my build thread. No questions, just wanted to say great work! Looks like we're going through a lot of the same decisions (doors, stone, wood, etc.). Can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks. I can't wait to get my speakers. Should be ready in a few weeks......then I'll post up the final pics.

Beautiful build, love the stone and barn-wood combination, where did you get that idea from for a theater ?

Also, are you planning the wood prior to putting them up ?

I see why you are biased to the stone, I really like the look. The whole room looks fantastic.

Wow! Great looking build. I love the wood and stone look. I've got LS-6's and an IB sub system. I run my mains fullrange. Actually I go back and forth between fullrange nd crossed over to the IB subs. Right now I am fullrange. Are you going to have the LS-9's fullrange?

This is the second build currently going on that is use LS-9's for mains. Rkinmoval's build is using LS-9s for his LCR.

The look of your theater is one of my favorites here on avs. Right up my alley. The wood ceiling is super cool. And the entry way door is very nice. All around just a relaxing space to chill in.

I have heard deserdomes LS6's and IB setup and both are very impressive so it is likely that you will be enjoying a fantastic sounding theater in no time.

Thanks desert! Did you get your LS-6's from the debacle that WAS AV123? Do you have a build thread here, and if so, got a link?

I don't yet have my LS-9 and LS-C so I'm not a hundy on running them full range or not, but from everything I've read, they should have zero problem like that. They should be leaving Ruben's place in the next two weeks (fingers crossed).

I looked at Rkinmovals thread.....how crazy is that----we're both running LS-9's, AND both building a HT under a garage. I'll jump over to his build and go through it. I'm sure we both had very similar hurdles to deal with.

I bought 3 pairs of cabinets at the auction after av123 closed. I've built out a pair so far. I may build one more out for a center.
My living room theater isn't "done" yet. I may do a review thread when it is finished. Here are build threads for the IB and the LS-6's.

Mojave's LS-6 Build (I go by mojave on other forums)

Small world.
I'm on that forum as well. That's how I came about getting in touch with Ruben for the LS-9, LS-C and LSC Stand build. I have replied in a few of Rubens threads since he was hard to get any status from. Danny suggested I post in the forums vs. send PM's, emails and voice messages. I thought of that too, but didn't want to "call him out" so to speak, but I took Danny's advice and when you can't get a response from Ruben, post it up in the forum for all to see, then you get a reply.

How difficult was the stone work? I'm seriously thinking about doing something like that in the rec room area of our basement.

Hope your speakers arrive this week. Have someone around to help you place them. You're not going to be able to lift them yourself.

Love the room, it's just insane and just up my alley with the raw iron, distress wood work! Also love the door, it just conjures secrete passwords !


Congrats, and wait to see the room with the Fronts LCR speakers..

That's funny you ask....I WAS planning on giving the stone work a shot myself. But then AT THE TIME, my speakers were going to be finished SOONER, so I had a buddy who's a mason handle it. After I put up the plywood and built out the acoustic treatment boxes, I put up the metal lathe. I really did NOT want to go that route, but he insisted I do this before he came over.

I questioned couldn't the stones just be glued up? That could have worked, but the stones are not perfectly shaped and you would want a mortar of some sort behind the stone. So I put up the lathe and then he came over with another guy to speed things up. Let me just say that it created more dust than the drywall!

After the stone was up, I took out my wet-dry and vacuumed all the surfaces. But if I swiped my finger across any stone, I would have a gray finger.

So I had to actually "scrub" all the stone with water. I used the wet dry at the same time to help keep the mess at bay since there would have been puddles all over the floor if I didn't wet-dry it up at the same time. Don't want to do that over again, but in the end I got the look and feeling I was striving for when you walk in.

Buttering the stones isn't hard and it goes pretty fast if you have the feel for it (which I did not).

If you're planning something small like an accent wall, GO FOR IT! Just know it gets REAL MESSY! I seriously had no idea stone work was so dusty.

so cool. really really like that ceiling. that looks like the same ledge stone we have for our fireplace. ours has little sparkles in it. looks so cool all tied together. carpet color is good too to go along with the wood and stone.

So I stumbled into this thread during a football break yesterday. Was only paying about 1/2 attention and just browsing your early construction photos when I spotted the Ozinga ready-mix truck, and asked WHERE IS THIS BUILD? Then quickly realized you are somewhere in my vicinity.

Just read the whole thing and am truly impressed - love the "distressed/rustic/stone" look. This has become one of my two favorites, the other one is just over the Wisconsin state line. This will be a great space, and I am sure will become an Award Winner!!

Not sure how I missed this fabulous build? Subscribed and joining everyone else here, in enjoying your race to the finish-line!
