Aside from the propaganda, lets see...
Procella P815 for the mains, in a baffle wall. Eight Procella P6V for surround and rear channels, and eight of the new Procella P8IW in the ceiling. We would have upgraded the surround speakers as well, but construction of the isolation and back boxes was probably too far along at that point. The builder, Steve Kujala of Heartwood Customs, is patient enough with me when I make changes, but I have to draw the line somewhere! There are also four Procella P18 subwoofers, with independent amplification for each driver. As the article above says, there is a Trinnov Altitude32 of course. QSC Q-SYS for each channel, utilizing a Core510c and a pair of i/o frames, feeding a stack of QSC DCA amplifiers. Lumagen, Barco Loki, 14.5' 2.35 Stewart screen. Hrm....Lutron Ketra lighting, plenty of RGB LED, Crestron control, Josh AI. Engineering and Architectural/Isolation design by Dennis Erskine, Acoustical design by Quest Acoustical Interiors, and as mentioned earlier, all of the construction from room isolation to custom doors to interior trim work completed by Steve Kujala and his crew.
I will be finishing up the audio calibration right before the grand opening on March 28th. Ken Whitcomb and I beat our way through the Lumagen and Loki combo last week, and Ken will be doing lots of tweaking before the big night. He knows his stuff for sure.
I'm sure there will be a press release in the next few weeks about it also. Pretty cool space they have built out there. They have built rooms to showcase the use of technology in different parts of a home, including a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room space, etc. There is also plenty of space for their educational boot camp courses, video and podcast facilities, and offices/conference rooms for CEDIA staff.
