Bill, can't wait to see your finished 1099's and hear your impressions. Great build!!

Also, I do like your idea of 2.0:1 screen ratio... when we can afford to upgrade, it will hopefully be a projector of this setup

There is no down side to 2.0:1 if you have the space I have 19' wide and 10' ceilings up front so it was a no brainer

A few questions for you, Bill.

Did you end up putting duct liner in your duct boot/muffler like you did for the dead vent? Or did it remain just unadorned OSB?

Why did you put what looks like support boards in the corners of the duct boot? Why not just a plain box made of OSB?

Is the white gunk acoustic caulk or duct mastic?

I just didn't trust a OSB to OSB connection without reinforcement so the framing. Yes I used acoustical caulk. I never got around to doing duct liner but no noise to note. However I have yet to put the covers on which may change things.

Bill;
Your signature window plug link takes me to page 14 post 391, the last post http://www.avsforum.com/t/1468993/the-retirement-dream-home-theater/210#post_23739998 , can you re-link it to the correct post?

I just added a door to my HT and now I'd like to apply a window plug to my AV rack back access panels.
(AV rack for HT is the bump by the sink area, those 2 access doors now need some plug in them.)


all walls are 2 x 6 offset stud except these are 2 x 4 stud for AV rack, so I've got some surface for plug to rest into/on
Yea - cable management also :)

Putting any hard-coded page in a link will end up being problematic, since people can have different page view settings. I wrote up how to do this in several portable fashions HERE

Sory but evertime I read that my head hurts. What should my window plug be then?

Your best bet would be:

Code:
[ POST=23740019]Window plug[/POST]
But with no space between the bracket and POST (needed so it didn't self-format)

granroth - I've had hard coded links in my sig for years and they still work....
I've done both ways; just grab the URL and use that, or click on the post # and use that ....
Maybe it's when there is a link to some post in a thread and for whatever reason a post in that thread is deleted, then the link is broken/not pointing to correct location? anyway I'm not a web techie so beyond me, and I just read the posts by Bill (thx Bill again)

Yep, looks like all of your links are either thread links (which tend to always work), links to the first post of a thread (also always works), or use the old-school style of post linking using avs-vb/showthread.php. That's one the reliable ways of linking to a specific post.

What I've found is that links to specific posts that use the new style URL, which include the page number after the thread name, are hit-and-miss. If you happen to have the same page settings as the person posting the link, then that'll always work. If you don't, then it'll sometimes work and sometimes not.

For instance, say I posted a link to your post like this:

Code:
www.avsforum.com/forum/19-dedicated-theater-design-construction/1468993-retirement-dream-home-theater-4.html#post30631578
If I go to that link without logging in, or with a different page view count other than 100 per page, then it'll show me a much earlier page than the right one. Sometimes it will switch to the right one and sometimes it will not. I can never predict in advance.

That's why I worked through the various ways of posting a link to a specific post, which actually work 100% of the time. It was incredibly frustrating.
