i should say it wasn't as much the pulling but how it tangles on itself as you pull and let it pile on itself till you move to the next areas as you pull longer runs that can't go all at once. the spine i think is what makes it so stiff. the solid strands themselves are much heavier also. these are also those tool less flex connections to relieve strain vs standard shielded ends. i haven't used any yet but i was sent a bunch to try. they are nice. very very well made.

What a difference! I may just buy terminated cables, then use keystone outlets with female to female connectors.

Nice to see the cable in detail and how it's terminated. Thanks for posting the pics!

I haven?t found any shielded cat6a keystones yet? Anyone know of any that handle the drain wire properly to keep the path shielded?

the uxcell ones are unshielded so they wouldn't give u the full shielded path with cat6a shielded.

these are shielded:

https://www.amazon.com/Listed-Cable-...Pack%29+Cat+6A

i will say this one thing and i dont' know how all feel but i use only atlona extenders and they want wire t owire connection. no keystones in the path for the best signal path. i tend to agree also cause we are talkign about alot of information moving anymore with 4K and with HDR in the mix also now.

these are the ends i use. i only use thier tools and ends:

https://www.platinumtools.com/produc...nector-106190/

but is see that they got lots of new stuff. the ezpass ones i'm going to grab some and see but again another new tool just for them. they have 2 different sizes based on wire diameter. this goes back to the wire i use has a huge jacket.

but i see they have keystone jacks now. i'll have to grab a few and try them out.

https://www.platinumtools.com/produc...6a-jack-751-1/

i just like and trust thier product. it's all i have used over the years.

but again u have to know ur jacket diameter if you are going to use the ezpass ones cause u don't want the jacket or conductors floating around inside the connector cause u won't have a good connection.

6a doesn’t need to be shielded for 10Gbit. You can see above that there’s foil, but at least on mine there is no drain wire and it is marketed as unshielded twisted pair (UTP). This greatly simplifies termination, you only have to worry about the ends being designed for the greater diameter of 6a but termination is generally the same.

The level of twists in both the pairs and separator between pairs does more for noise rejection than shielding. The foil tape is just padding to reduce crosstalk between separate cables, but does not need to be terminated.

http://www1.panduit.com/en/landing-p...rix-technology

https://www.belden.com/products/ente...r/cable/cat-6a

None of this is to say that you won’t find shielded 6a somewhere that needs termination, just that the spec does not require it for 10Gbit speeds, so it’s up to you to decide what you want. Just don’t assume that foil in a cable means it is shielded and needs shielded termination.

sorry if i was confusing for 10gig network.

the foil isn't for the shielding. there is a drain wire that gets wrapped around and clamped down. the foil gets thrown away.

i'm sorry i guess i was talking more shielded vs unshielded for hdmi extenders where companies spec using shielded vs unshielded for longer runs. i'm sorry.

you can see the drain wire wrapped around the clamp to ground the termination.

Guys, thanks for the great info! I think I will buy terminated lengths of Cat6a cable and use keystone couplers such as these:

https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Keysto...ct_top?ie=UTF8

If they don't end up working I'll just cut off the cable plug and install the recommended keystone jack.

Not cheaper but if you don't want to buy as much: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Carlon-2...1-20/207160085 Up here in Canada I could only find stuff over 1" in 750' rolls so ended up ordering from Home Depot US.

Thanks, that's a good option. I'm perplexed as to why a PVC tube is so expensive!

A shout-out to bubbrik for helping me out with a spare length of conduit! Much appreciated!! After a 300 mile round trip I am now the proud owner of this Big Falcon Roll of Linacoustic, courtesy of chrispy. That makes me the second phase of the brotherhood of the travelling roll of Linacoustic. No specific plans for it at the moment but no doubt it will come in handy.





New parts are in for the LV cabling. I opted to go with Cable-Matters Cat6a patch cable. It is nowhere are substantial as the in-wall rated version but it should suffice. The cabling is working out well using various lengths of patch cable. However, to quote Stonewater TMcG, the project is turning out to be death by a 1000 financial cuts. I didn't budget nearly enough for the cabling.





This is a rough idea of what my cable routing looks like:

It's been years since I went to a movie theater. The Black Panther movie is out and I was content to wait until its release on streaming or disc. Unfortunately there are too many spoilers coming out so I decided to go check it out. Whoa, what an experience! Sometimes I look at some of the builds in this forum and think they are way overkill. My mind is now reset - I want to bring Wakanda to my home theater!! Some of the scenes, such as the flight into Wakanda and the decent into the Vibramium mine were incredibly immersive. The Pacific Rim Uprising trailer was mind blowing!

All the good spots in the theater were taken which forced me to find a seat a little closer to the screen than I would prefer. It turned out to be perfectly fine. That got me thinking, a 100 inch screen may work for a 8 foot viewing distance. A friend loaned me his BenQ HT2050 and it was time to get a'sperimentin'. As I mounted the projector on the joists I was wondering how to set up the obligatory white sheet. My eureka moment came within 15 minutes of the closing time of the local Lowes. A mad dash there for a couple of ten foot 2x4 studs, one $10 king size white sheet from Walmart and it was screen time. I stapled the sheet to the studs, rolled them a couple of times like a parchment scroll from the middle ages, then screwed them to the wall framing.

I've made a huge blunder: Now that the projector is installed I have lost interest in the build!

Ouch...cardinal sin no. 1: Never start using the projector before the build is finished!
Hide the remote controls and continue working.

The projector has really thrown a wrench into the works. Though the room is wired for a projector, one was never seriously in the plan. The only reason for borrowing a projector was so I can get my contingency wiring and mounting surfaces sorted out. I thought that my wall space and viewing distance could only comfortably support a 90 inch screen. With mainstream TV sets already in the 82 inch realm what would be the point of a projector?

Well, all of that has changed..

Once you go projector you can't go back. After testing a number of permutations I'm now looking at having a 135 inch, 16:9 AT screen from my 9ft viewing position. That is just a touch too big for regular 16:9 programming but it is perfect for cinemascope. Most of the time I plan to have a 130 inch 16:9 picture, then once in a while, when the occasion calls for it, zoom the picture to fill the screen for a movie.

So the problems:
Most of my reservations about projectors were confirmed. The picture washes out easily with ambient light. The lights will need to be low or off, and every time someone moves in front of the seating they cause shadow. On top of that I now have to learn the A-Zs of projectors and screens. Since the screen is so large I have no choice but to mount the speakers behind the screen. The wall framing is reinforced in the center to support a heavy duty TV mount so it will have to be hacked to fit a speaker box. The wall is 2x4 framing and there is a corridor on the other side so the speaker box needs to work within that space. The center speaker is eight inches deep. After calculating clearances I think I will end up having the screen six inches proud of the wall, with the speaker one inch behind the screen material. Will that work? Since the speaker is only handling frequencies above 120Hz I hope that can fly.

To mock the new setup I stood a couple of 2x4s 6.5 inches in front of the wall framing and screwed them to the joists above. I then screwed my parchment scroll screen to the two studs. To get the picture in focus I used beer goggles. They didn't work but they were worth the try..

I have been told you should have 6" of space between the speaker and the screen because of timbre shift from the speakers. But it may depend on the type of acoustical material you have. You could try it by putting the center behind your current setup and see if the screen moves at all. I am thinking of going with a AT screen in the future and I was going to try and have 6" of space, but my room is almost 26' so I have room to work with. Wish I would have looked into screens more before I bought mine about 7 or 8 years ago and I would have gone with a 2.35:1 AT screen at about 150" wide instead of the 104" wide 16:9 screen I have.

What speakers are you using? Can backer boxes be built into the wall and speakers put in the backer boxes?

I'm using KEF KHT3005SE sub sat systems. I intend to build backer boxes. The problem is that there is a corridor on the other side of the wall so they can only be as deep as the studs.

Those don't seem to be to deep, you may be ok.

I did the math. Unfortunately after you add the casing for the backer box and air space the depth is all gone.

It's been a long weekend of experimenting with screen sizes and sound. I set up the KEF sub sat system for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by its quality and power. There are too many back flips to do in order to make the center speaker work behind the screen. For giggles I tried placing the center below the screen. It sounds just fine! That's the direction I'm going to take. It will practically sit on the floor. That expands my screen choices into non-AT options.

As for the screen I found that a 110 inch 16:9 picture gives me the ideal regular TV experience. However I still plan to go 135 inches. It will be more of a 'workspace' where I can adjust the picture to the size I want. While having a black border around the picture would be nice, versatility is way more important to me. I like that the top position of the BenQ image remains constant through the zoom range.

As a UK lurker, I am loving your choice of viewing!

I am currently having a media room built in my soon to converted garage, trying to incorporate as many of the soundproofing techniques as possible, so am enjoying your build. Sub’d!

While browsing screens and materials on Amazon I was pleasantly surprised to find it is possible to buy sample packs, and they are cheap. The Carl's Sample Pack Projector Screen Materials came in today. I'm waiting on the Elite Screens Sample Pack 7.
