Really looking good and you've made a lot of progress in a short time.

Well, thank you. Appreciate it. Still not quite ready, but close.

From a performance standpoint, I'm extremely happy. Love the JVC, it's bright, crisp and worthy. I ordered a few 4K BDs and even though its on e-shift, it's impressive. The audio is amazing. I've watched Fury Road about 50+ times (always on HBO) before the theater was functional. There were so many things I missed - whispers, clarity, etc. Really happy with everything - the soundproofing (DDWGG, doors, etc) works great, I was somewhat skeptical, but with almost everything complete there, it's amazing how quiet things are with the door shut.

Shifting all my BDs to Plex now that I have the NAS and that is so convenient from a media organization standpoint. Works really well.

Extremely happy with the performance of things.

Did a little more fabric when I had a chance this week. It was a busy one. Not going to be able to do anything this weekend either. I have the bottom of the theater entrance doors to complete and the little piece above the other door. I can then get the knobs on. From there I'll go ahead and do the screen, thinking I'm just going to build panels since it'll be easy.

Finished the last of the fabric in the room, moving to panels tomorrow. Did install one doorknob, but it's not working quite yet, even though I chiseled out for the latch, it's still out too far and the door won't shut now, so I'll need to take it all off and start again. I had to order 4" screws for the entrance door today since the 3 1/2" screws barely worked for the concession area door.

I feel like I slowed down to a crawl, but I am enjoying the room.

Hi Bud,
I've examined many of your excellently-informative photos up close, but I cannot tell just how much "reveal" you have between the fabric installed in the fabric track and the trim molding that surrounds each fabric panel section of your walls. The fit and finish looks great, but I cannot tell if the fabric and trim wound up flush, or with a bit of a reveal of the molding (meaning the fabric is inset some).

I'm shooting for a reveal of about 3/8" to 1/2", but I'm not entirely sure how that will look and am wondering if perhaps a smaller 1/4" reveal is what I need.

Would you mind measuring and telling me the size of your reveal? It would help give me some perspective on how a given size may look.

Thanks in advance,
Terry

Terry,

There is hardly any reveal. I'll shoot you a picture. The slot in the track that the fabric is installed in is on the outer part os the track which fits inside the framed panel. The molding (portrait molding?) that goes around the opening is just enough so you can see the slot in the track. Once the fabric is in the track, you really don't see it at all. I think because I had to tough up that molding after the fabric was installed that I would recommended you paint the trim and install it after the fabric is in and just touch up the holes. Next time I head down I'll shoot a picture.

Thanks bud. I'm mostly interested in the reveal from a depth perspective versus the side-to-side distance.

On painting the trim after the fabric is in, I probably would've done as you did and paint first, as I'd be worried I would get paint on the fabric. Have to figure out a way to mask it I guess.

From a depth perspective, it's flush with the panel frame. The track is 2" deep, the acoustic material is 2" deep and the finished MDF frame is 2"deep.

You can always tape the fabric. When I installed the "L" modeling around the soffit, I had to fill in the holes and seams and I just used the blue tape.

Thanks Bud. Doe the panel molding sit on top of the finished MDF frame? That may be where I'm seeing some "reveal", or maybe I'm interpreting the pics incorrectly.

Got all my panels built for the screen wall. Two have fabric. One needs to be ripped down a little bit, it's too wide. Will try and get that done today and the fabric on the last two panels. No around this weekend to work on the theater.

Holding off on pictures until the little things are wrapped up and everything is completed. Shortly. Only thing that may take a bit is the Crestron integration, but that's because I have a double NAT issue that I need some help on.
