High lamp, haven't tried low lamp. The room is 100% light controlled, but at that throw distance and size I don't think I could get away with low lamp.

My bet it was from cutting the fiberglass batts for the riser, but the Ultratouch performs as well as the 2" OC703 (with the Ultratouch's 3.5" thick batts mind you, but I have the space for it) so I'd rather not have any more fiberglass in my room.

See the Savoy build, Nyal Mellor spec'd Ultratouch for the walls and David said it was so much nicer to work with than fiberglass.
Found this bargain on Amazon;

Hahaha! Quite the ripoff there. Shouldn't be near that much -- HT Geek found some at a Lowe's near him, might want to ask him what it cost him: HT Geek on Ultratouch R-13 acoustical performance

I feel anything over 75k is just simply ridiculous!

So the DIYSG Titan 615s were back up for preorder late last night. I spent the weekend spamming refresh to get my order in as soon as they were available. Preorder is in and now to wait for them to come in so I can finalize the order. In the mean time I'll get the cabinets built.

We have been doing more work in the theater, but a bit slow now that its warming up outside we've been doing some outdoor projects as well.

The frames are all built for the wall panels and we got the soffit led lighting up. Also we have the vents in for the soffit, just have to paint them black and get them installed. Never a dull weekend I suppose.

More pics coming soon...

Hey @Aerumas ,

Just saw you pop up in another thread, and wondered if you had any new updates? I think I saw it was okay to finalize titan preorders, did you get that in?

Yeah I got my order finalized but they haven't shipped yet. I do have my cabinets built, painted, and ready to line with insulation. In the theater we've done a few things and I need to get some updated pictures but been swamped with work and family visiting. I'll try and get some updated pics online soon.

Hey @Aerumas

I'm working on my baseboard/wainscotting and coming up to my door and I was curious what you/your wife did for your baseboard attached to the door. I assume that with carpet+pad you had to have your door bottom higher than the bottom of your baseboard on the wall by .25-.5 inch. Did you bring the bottom of the baseboard up to match the bottom of the door, causing a slight mismatch in the base along the wall(leaving the top matching)? Or is the base along the wall happen to be as tall as the bottom of your door?

Thanks!

PS - have you had any updates in your theater?

We matched the top of the baseboard and just trimmed the bottom of the door and baseboard to allow for the door to close.



Let me get some other pictures uploaded and I'll post an update.

Ok so the last thing I talked about was getting the DIYSG Titan 615LXs to replace my 1099s. Building them was a lot of fun. Since I had to wait for the preorder to come in I decided to build my boxes ahead of time.

Here are some of the pics during that build (I even used a router to inset my braces):




We are very happy with how they turned out and the sound in beyond awesome! They fill the room so easily, and I was more than happy to return the 1099s upstairs for my living room setup.

While we had the screen down we decided to add some velvet panels on the sides and a velvet lined bar across the top to house the screen lights.

Side panel right next to the screen, love the deep black.


Lights above the screen up finally:

We also worked on getting all of the side panels up around the room. Used some 1x boards from Lowes and wrapped with fabric from Fabricmate. Behind them is a lot of OC703 some with scrim and some without for handling reflection points.





The last item I've been trying to find time to finish is the rear pocket door screen prints. I got some great help from Nickboul to get the images I wanted. I did a test fit on my frames, but obviously need to paint them black and then finish mounting them.

Wow, looks great!

re: baseboard- I was thinking that was likely what you did, and it looks great. I just need to decide if I should wait to attach that base until after carpet is in to minimize my trimming needs.

Would you say your theater is complete now? Any to dos left?

A few things I need to finish up.
  • Install completed Superman prints
  • Finish installing the atmos speaker grills with screws, tried velcro first and that didnt hold up
  • build a fabric frame for the main door to match the room
  • get black lighting and a star ceiling painted - that will be a long while
  • touch up painting

You have been busy. Those Titans always look so impressive, and I'm sure with sound to match.
I love your brown and grey color scheme...stately and manly...yet soothing.

What method and materials did you use to finish up your Atmos speakers once they were in the ceiling (grill cloth, etc)?

I'm installing my Volts in the ceiling the same way you did, except my first layer is drywall, not osb. I was also considering finishing the speaker first, installing the front baffle/crossover/stuffing and then placing it between the hat channel so the speaker baffle face will be flush with the first layer of drywall. Is there any reason NOT to do it this way?

I have yet to find any build threads that give a dedicated and thorough description of the ins and outs of atmos ceiling installation while preserving soundproofing...

Thanks!
