Re: Rebirth of Relyea Cinema 1

Made a little more progress on the room today. All the old trim and wall paneling is down. I'll be pulling apart the bay window shelf tomorrow and lowering this to a comfortable seating level (indicated by the red line), and adding custom cushions and backrest. This is really just for spill-over seating, not everyday use...extra cushion and fabric should tame the room a bit more acoustically. The remaining volume below the seat is stuffed full of fiberglass, and i'm thinking i may cover that area with homasote and acoustic carpeting instead of sheet-rock to let this act as a bit of a bass trap...again, every bit will help.

Very nice, I would also load up that front wall to ease the reflection off those bricks. Are your subs going to be front firing?

Front wall will be a "false wall"...speakers will all fire directly into the room, there will be 3x 18" subs across the lower front. I'll be sheetrocking the face, and based on acoustic measurements I'll decide if i need to fill the voids with sand or something else. I had contemplated removing the fireplace, but the extra effort for 6 inches of room depth wasn't worth it...and this leaves me with a potential selling point should i sell the house down the road.

This will be similar to the room I had back in 2009.

Re: Rebirth of Relyea Cinema 1

Today was a productive day. Shelf was stripped out, and I'm almost done framing up the new seat. Of course there was a run of romex running through the wall that I now need to relocate, but it's all good.

Re: Rebirth of Relyea Cinema 1

Looks like this is going to be a great room. So the front wall is a full solid baffle wall with the speakers installed in it, right? (vs. a false wall framed out and covered in acoustic cloth, with the speakers behind) The old theatre looked really nice, and I bet it sounded fantastic. Keep up the good work!

Correct, this will be a full wall...2x6 construction with sheetrock face, and the Urei's will be soffit mounted. I'll be measuring everything with CLIO once the room is put together, and treating problems as i find them...damping resonances in sheetrock, etc.

The old room was nice, but this new room is going to be better...more acoustic treatments this time, and with the adjacent room, i'll have a far more manageable front to back standing wave to deal with.

Thanks for the correction on this being a full baffle, and not a false wall...I definitely misused the term.

Re: Rebirth of Relyea Cinema 1

Work has been insanely busy...and it's been in the 90's with high humidity, so I haven't been working on the room as much as I should. Anyways...I did get a little work done this weekend. The seat height in the bay window is far more comfortable now.
