Re: My retirement Home Theater

I called them today and had a long talk about the HT setup... I will be reviewing the info this weekend and submitting a order next week.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Hi,
Are you using Floating floors and/or box in box construction to acoustically isolate?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I was told to not build a sub floor... Onl build one for the second row of seats... Just use carpet pad and carpet for the floor.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

subfloor can be done IF you have sufficient headroom, budget, don't mind a step up into the room, etc.

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I think without the subfloor it will allow me to seal off the ceiling better with the HVAC ducting that is already in place.

10. Install 3/4" OSB sub floor on top of 2x4 laid on its side 1 1/2" high sub floor for everywhere except 2nd row.
Anyway, ignore MasonUK, he's a schill.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I have changed up my audio speaker setup a little too... I am making these, but mine will have the JBL 2360A horns with the EV DHA-1 drivers . The front 3 channels will be 2 ways with the same woofers but the center channel will have the Faital horns and drivers. This will now mean that I will have a pair of La Scalas for the rear channels. The Klipsch Heresy HIPs, and Klipsch Pro 3002s will still be used but I am not sure which will be used as heights or for the width channels. I am sure as I go there will be other changes too. This setup means I will now be running a active crossover and bi-amping the front 3 channels with the minidsp for time alignment, PEQ, and sub integration. The horns will all be driven with chip amps. I am really getting excited about this setup now.

Here is what the horns look like...

That is a serious horn! Looking forward to seeing that build...

Good to hear Ted and John got you squared away!

Yes, I can't wait to start getting this all completed... Especially since I have new speakers, subs, and amps.
