Hey Aaron,
I started on my subs last weekend and was able to get everything cut out of 8 sheets instead of 9 (2 per sub). The sheets of 3/4 MDF at my menards are 97 inches on the long side, so I was able to squeeze three front/back panels out of each sheet. I thought I'd share my cutlist in case you want to save a sheet of MDF when you start yours. I also created an exploded view of the sketchup model that I thought I'd share. I plan on getting them assembled and start a build thread this weekend.

@sassuki - thank you for that! That’s awesome.

I’m taking a small break, and am enjoying the outdoors, so there will be no new updates for a while.

Where is this? Been to Killington this year as well as Snowshoe but after skiing the Rockies I can't tolerate east coast skiing anymore. My wife is just learning and has been intimidated by the Rockies. It looks like I will be able to get her to Colorado next year. Can't wait!

We are at Wolf Creek, Colorado. The snow here is incredible. We usually ski Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. I would say for a first time ski trip in the Rockies, your wife would love keystone. It’s got a great village area, and the neighboring towns are nice as well. Wolf creek is more of a local vibe with a lot more difficult terrain.

I've skied Winterpark as well as Copper but prefer Keystone. Skied the bowl once by myself and that was a little beyond my ability. Lol. Pretty sure I have her talked into Keystone next year!

I live in Colorado...if you haven’t been to Utah yet I’d recommend it over Colorado.

Less people, better/more snow, amazing advanced terrain.

Anyways, I’ll stop dissing my state now

I definitely love advanced terrain. I usually stick to black and double black runs unless I am with family and friends. What resort do you recommend?

3/11/19 - time to get back at it!

After a much needed break, I’m mentally and physically refreshed - just in time to make the turn towards the finish line. I’m setting an aggressive goal to have the room fully covered in fabric by this weekend, and to begin prepping for speaker construction.

In other news, my Belmont seats from HTMarket should be arriving tomorrow. I can’t wait to try them out!

Amen to that! I want to get to Utah someday but I also like to drive and Colorado is my limit one day drive from Indiana. A bad day in the Rockies is better than the best east coast day! I used to live in NY and forgot how many people live on the east coast and go skiing. Lol

Is it bad that I've lived in Northern Colorado since the mid 90's and still have never skied or snow boarded?

Great job on the build! I am not even upset that "you made me" stay up until 1:00am going through the entire thread! I didn't even realize what time it was until my exterior and interior house lights automatically shut off on me at 12:30am.
Be for-warned ... I plan on robbing many of your ideas, starting with your door, the panel construction, and ... likely countless other items?

P.S. Not totally your fault for my lack of sleep ... As I was reading through, I saw Jeff's suggestion to check out the Sierra Nevada thread for the panel construction, so naturally I had to read through most of that one too ... so he can share the blame.

Great stuff ... and a great job detailing your work! Thanks in advance for making my build easier!

I’ll hop in on this tangent, I have a season pad at Alta. It’s amazing, I kind of feel bad for snowboarders. It’s also fun to drop down the back into Snowbird occasionally.

Here are some shots from a few days ago.

Holy cow I want to be there right now! Haha, thank you for sharing those pictures. Man I wish I had another week of vacation to blow right this moment. What about Park City? It looks HUGE, like we could spend a week there and still not experience everything - skiing, village night life, etc... ?

Yeah, if you’re into the Apres Ski you’ll want to go to Park City, Deer Valley, maybe Solitude or Snowbasin.

The thing about Park City is that despite being large they’ve been completely packed ever since they got bought by Vail and are on the Epic pass.

3/14/19 seats arrive!

Today was an exciting day! All 8 of my HTDesign Belmonts arrived. I purchased curbside delivery, but the driver was kind enough to help me place the boxes inside of my garage. 4 of the 8 boxes were visibly damaged, but there didn’t appear to be any damage pass through the box and impact the seating. I haven’t opened the boxes up yet to confirm that, however.

In other news, I purchased a truck, so now instead of cramming lumber into a 2-door Nissan Altima, I’ll have a proper vehicle to haul supplies, equipment, and lumber with. I’ve been working on the truck the past couple of days in my spare cycles, so there hasn’t been much theater progress.

My two Behringer NX6000D’s arrived as well, so now the only thing holding me back is me!

Also, my Seymour Center Stage Xd screen should be arriving within the next several days.

Tomorrow I should be back at theater work. I hope to knock out a large chuck of the fabric covering, and maybe if I work diligently, this weekend I will begin building speaker cabinets!...

Looks like an exciting day Aaron! Looking forward to hearing your review of the Belmonts. Much more exciting than hanging osb and rock on ceiling channels...that's my plan for the weekend and upcoming week. Lol

Nice on getting the chairs, amps and truck. I would love a new F150 FX4. Did you get the Eco Boost motor or 5.0 V8? I have an 2011 XLT. I'm waiting to see what the new Bronco looks like before thinking about a new vehicle.

I went with the 2.7 EcoBoost motor and love it. These motors are so efficient these days. I think the 2.7 model has 325 HP and 410 pounds of torque. It’s just enough power to haul all of this Speaker cabinet wood I need to buy :P

3/16/19 Back to work

Knocked out another 3 panels. These particular panels were very tight fitting. I order to fit them into place I had to set the bottom one in, and then angle the top and middle ones outward, and move them into place together at the same time. After I set them into place, I noticed some slack that needed to be taken out, and so I had to pull the panels back out. Well, they are so tight fitting that you can simply pull them out via hand. My solution was to the has the handle end of a spoon to wedge them out, and it worked perfectly. No cuts or scrapes to the fabric.

I’m taking a break and will get back at it here soon. I figured each panel takes about 45 minutes if I am working with no distractions.

I noticed after uploading the spoon picture that the middle panel chamfer edge on the right side is a little askew. Ah well, I don’t think I want to rip the fabric off and re-do that panel.
