Terry: What is the approximate width and length of your room?
Something I have decided to look into is a Full-Cover for the Ekornes Ottoman that sits right in front of the Ekornes Love-seat we sit on.
That Custom-Leather-Furniture is NOT Black it's a Gray color UN-Fortunately.
And why is that an issue ???
Simple the RS4500 Laser Projector is so BRIGHT shining against the New Stewart Filmscreen ST130 G4 Material.
It's causing the Top of that Ekornes Shiny-Gray Ottoman to SHINE-on-TOP and that's somewhat annoying.
Easy solution is to simply get an appropriate Black-Cover for it that will absorb light and problem solved.
I've actually been so Concerned/Overly-Worried about the RS4500 I've UN-Intentionally put the Ekornes Ottoman situation on the Back-Burner.
This afternoon after hearing, well actually, the E-Mail from Mike Garrett regarding the RS4500 has gotten me once again All-Fired-Up on getting that cover.
I have found two (2) Companies that have Ottoman-Black-Covers that will work.
The one I think I prefer happens to be three (3) times more expensive than the other that's made in China.
The one (1) I think I want is made in the View attachment 3026180 View attachment 3026180 View attachment 3026180 and as silly as that might seem to some I prefer that if it's especially the much-much-better product.
(It ^^^ is a Custom-made-Cover)
Solid Black Custom Ottoman Cover is crafted from upholstery grade duck and will last the test of time. With this slipcover, seasonal decorating throughout your home is fun and easy, for perfect results you may coordinate this solid slipcover with a variety ofother solids, floral, plaids, and...www.slipcovershop.com
Below is a general picture of what I'm seeking.
Of course this is NOT the exact one (1) I hope turns-out to be the one (1) made in the View attachment 3026180
I sent in my request for a Patch of the Exact material and that Request has been acknowledged and will soon be on it's way.
I want to try to make sure the Black material doesn't appear to be Shiny.
Chuck,Thanks. I guessed the width as it is very close (within 4") to the width in my room. But in the FWIW category, your cubic footage may be very slightly larger than 4200cf - at least as far as your subs are concerned since they "see" the space that is occupied by the stairwell that goes downstairs.
Nice sized room!
Bro Tom,Hi Terry,
Nice that you could find a black cover for your shiny ottoman and one made in the USA.
Your bat cave will be even more batty.
It shouldn't be long and you will have your projector back and then Charles can complete the install before Chad B comes out for the calibration of everything.
I'm really looking forward to your report once everything is done.
My guess is you will be thrilled with the results.
That was a nice trip down Memory Lane for me.
I remember well that long-ago visit and how much fun we had.
For those wondering, I was bowing down to Terry's Home Theater as it was a fantastic experience to be in a dedicated room full of the toys we who love music and movies must have: Everything from a big screen to popcorn and drinks.
The quality of the sound and video was really very good for that time.
Now, with all your new equipment, I would imagine words like excellent and superb would be more appropriate.
Cheers my friend,
So due to the above information as of this afternoon below is what else I have been doing in preparation to it's (RS4500) return.-------- Original message --------

"Service is still working on it.
Isolated to a problem in the main processor board.
They are actually working on it right now as we speak.
Hoping to have a further update next week.
I appreciate everyone’s patience."
JVC must have found another issue, when checking everything out.
Craig,You're getting a backlog of great movies !
I always have a backlog myself.
Based upon my experience in choosing movies for great sound (Atmos and Bass) it is really easy to come up with some real dogs in the "movie quality" category. Some of the Transformer movies come to mind. There was recently a "deal" on buying all of them for a seriously low price in 4K/HDR. I gave up watching them after I had seen two of them. Is the sound track good? Yes. But the actual quality of the movies? Not so much. Unfortunately, those are not the only movies I have purchased for reasons other than the quality of the movie itself.Craig,
I do have a really nice Starter Assortment of 4K movies now for sure.
I actually choose not to watch those really-really frequently.
I like to save and watch them over a Long-Period-of-Time as that way to me they are more enjoyable.
Something I have tried to do and stay up on is Subscribing to the Dedicated Threads for the Best Atmos 4K movies and the Best Bass in 4K movies.

On the other end of the spectrum is the new 4K/HDR release of "Mr Smith Goes To Washington" Two channel mono; black and white; 4:3 aspect ratio. I'd rather watch that multiple times than way too many of the movies I have purchased that JUST had great soundtracks.
Bu that's just me.
Those Triad Atmos speakers are going to Rock Pal.🎵 🎶 🗽Chrislee said,
I decided to go big and upgraded to the HTP-1, which then unfort. encouraged me to go big on my Atmos speakers, so I ordered 4-Triad's In Ceiling Silver/SAT6. I picked it b/c I love the angled placement of the two drivers, same fabric dome tweeters and same 6" mids used in my Tidal speakers. Installers all backlogged so I'm looking at Oct. for install. Which is fine b/c I don't have amplification worked out yet for these 4 channels.
Chrislee,Well I very much look forward to seeing it all put together with your impressions I love watching it all come together!
