Looks awesome, all around. Unfortunately for my wallet, I got a lot of ideas from this build.

Thanks guys. I have been really slacking in finishing the screen wall and masking. Been doing other house projects and watching movies. Also ordered a Umik-1 from Cross Spectrum. Need to run some sweeps to see how the room looks on paper. Audessy has done a good job but would like to see what’s really happening.

If you are having a great time with that girl after last call, just make sure you leave before the light of day.
Don't measure it!

I still have not measured the room or finished the masking. We have been enjoying movies and the hard work.

Cut and installed the bottom soffit panels above the stage. Used leftover oak plywood and stained black. Made 5 sections that are all removable. I still need to pack the soffits with pink fluffy too. Then did the one sin, put the projector in the room and pinned up the spandex. Watch a few demos and it’s so nice to hear the front soundstage coming from where is suppose to be located. Below are some pictures as usual.

Still need to do HVAC in ceiling, room treatments behind fabric panels, side finish panels, screen and electric masking, screen wash lights, and bass shakers.

For your projector fan does it directly dump into your return? How do you control it (on/off) also what foam did you use for the box and your screen wall? As always thanks for your help

Yes the fan dumps right into the air exchange return. I originally had the passive grill there. Then I changed it to the 80mm fan. Just to be safe I changed the 80mm to a 120mm fan to move more air at a lower rpm. As for controlling on and off, tapped off my rear subs switched power bridge outlets in the rear column. I intercepted that romex and installed another outlet in the soffit. The fan plugs into that outlet so when I turn my whole system on the fan comes on.

Foam is from foam factory

Also framed the back wall tonight.
bluer101 curious did you hook your two duct fans to one controller?

No, I have them separate for better control. Plus I can monitor intake temp and exhaust separate.

Separately, regarding your rack...what monitor is that? I was looking to do something similar in my rack and wanted to get the largest 1080P or 4K monitor which would fit in the space and have the custom rack face to hold it in position. It wasn't in your equipment list in the first post. Thanks!

I have to go back and update the list seeing stuff changed along the way. The tv is an Insignia 19” NS-19D220NA16-A. The tv is a 720p set but excepts 1080p, will change it out eventually to a 4K computer monitor. The rack mount bezel is from eBay that was meant for Denon’s 5805 receiver. It just happens to fit perfectly.

With the long holiday weekend I decided to work on the bass shakers. At my old place they were installed in my 4 living room seats. So after removing them I went to work on designing the new wood bracket for my Octane seats. I don’t have any photos of building the wood brackets but they are 1/2 ply front to back 6” wide. The ends that are screwed to the front and back of the chair is 3/4 ply. This gives a I mounting plate. This way the shaker transfers the shaking through the wood plate and evenly distributes thru the chair. The shakers themselves are bolted thru the 1/2 ply with wood nuts to make sure a tight connection to the wood plate.

Another issue I had was which way to wire the shakers. They are the ADX shakers from parts express with the Dayton sa230 subwoofer amp. The amp is rated at 4ohm minimum and with 4 shakers before I was able to wire them for 4 ohm. With 3 shakers I had 2 choices. Wire them as 4 shakers and hide one in the column somewhere or wire 3 in series for 12 ohms. I went with 3 in series for 12 ohms with hopes the reduced power will be ok. Did all the series wiring behind the wall plate so each chair is separately plugged in. Well after they were hooked up they are plenty powerful and really help fill in some bass feeling. Below are some install photos.

Links to the pics are broken, FYI.

By the way, in your rack for the triple horizontal mount .... are those the Air Infinity ventilation control panels? Were those screw spacing patterns now standard in the Middle Atlantic RSH custom faceplate catalog?

Yes those are the AC infinity fan controllers. The left one is room exchange exhaust, center is rack fans, and right is intake air exchange. As for the face plate I made it myself out a blank faceplate. Just lined them up and cut them out. Used masking tape to prevent scratches to the brushed aluminum.
