Lon, the room is just spectacular!

I love every single detail. The grills on the columns are stunning.

I loved the columns with the original white grill cloth set against the black and grey background, but I can see where the white would be distracting during a movie.

It looks like you ended up with a piece of port glass after all. Did the lens tube not block enough noise or did it block some of the image?

I’m sure you are absolutely loving the room! I bet it sounds equally impressive especially once Curt finishes with it!

Hi Chris:

Thanks for the compliments. The room is all about performance first, cosmetics second, so the white fabric was way to distracting when the lights went off. The white material was actually reflective to light up the entire grill with the LED lighting behind. Replacement to black fabric still lights the LED lights evenly but helps for the Pilasters and grills to disappear when the lights go off. BTW the grills were designed specifically to address the precise location of the SCL4 HF tweeters and woofers behind them so that these precise areas had the largest openings in the grill work.

As far as the glassless porthole the first design didn't work, the tube design interfered with the projected image, Steve Kajula designed a version 2 which I have on hand but have not had time to install.

Just incredible detail. Love the seating and esthetics. Well done!

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.

Room is now complete, hydraulic height adjusted stools arrived from Italy. When not in use stool back heights will be below bar counter height so no obstruction when occupied stool heights adjusted to individual comfort seating

This is just by briefly looking at the illustrations in post 1, so I might be wrong

Did you get any more information about why the panels in the front of the rooms had the specified absorbtive percentage?

I don't tend to use those terms so wanted to clarify your question:

Ipsilateral you mean left speaker / left side wall?

Contralateral you mean left speaker / right side wall?

I don't understand the logic of absorbing the ipsilateral reflections less than the contralateral. Ipsilateral would be higher in amplitude and more different in spectral balance relative to the direct sound than contralateral, and therefore more likely to cause imaging/spaciousness/timbral issues. The contralateral reflections would generally be far enough down in amplitude relative to direct sound to not need any treatment beyond diffusion. Ipsilateral would generally need a more absorptive or hybrid absorptive / diffusive treatment to manage the reflected energy.
