Re: My retirement Home Theater

I am thinking that the rope lighting and black lights will be nice for when listening to music only or maybe even watching music videos. Our HT is not near as big as the one with the fabric walls nor do I think it will turn out as nice, but I don't have the money to make one quite like that either. I will try and DIY it to make it as nice as I can afford.

Question Re: My retirement Home Theater

Question:
When you are doing OSB on the first layer of a clip/hat track rail... Do you need to have the screws on the drywall layer (2nd layer) go into the Hat track rails too, or can they just go directly into the OSB? I am thinking that they can go directly into the OSB as you would want the screws to be closer than every 16-24".

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I have been told that all the screws need to hit the hat channel when using OSB due to there being a precise tightening amount with OSB where as drywall will crush when it is right rather than pop the screw out of the channel. Since I don't want to have to worry about the ceiling coming down... I am now looking at doing 2 layers of drywall with green glue between them.

Question: Now i think I am just going to do the 2 layers of drywall with green glue for the ceiling. If I do it this way do both layers of drywall need the screws through the hat channel, or do I just need to be concerned with the first layer hitting the channel? I am anticipating the sheetrock screws being about 12-16" apart on the second layer.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I am ordering my door seals, and I am not sure which to get.

Should I get this one... http://www.tmsoundproofing.com/Door-...-Adhesive.html

or this one... http://www.tmsoundproofing.com/Door-...ing-style.html

I am also trying to decide between these 2 auto door seals...
http://www.tmsoundproofing.com/heavy...oundproof.html

or this one...
http://www.tmsoundproofing.com/Heavy...or-Bottom.html


Should I get a threshold too? http://www.tmsoundproofing.com/Utili...-4-Height.html
We have 2 solid core doors separated by 6' and the hallway is more of a ramp like you see in the theaters... We will have carpet once you cross the first threshold. Outside of the first door is flagstone.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Sorry if I am too late - I like option #2 in both cases. The bag wing has more material to close any seams, and the second seal kit has the foam insert that compresses - to me that will seal better.

I would skip the thresholds....

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Just ordered some Insteon dimmer outlets for our rope lighting, and a ELK M1 Gold wireless setup with ethernet for connecting our Insteon up with an alarm. This will give us three ways to control the Insteon... We can control it via the ELK keypad, Insteon switches or CQC HA software.

Question Re: My retirement Home Theater

I have a 26 port Cisco Gigabit Switch that we use for our home and we were trying to figure out how to deal with so many wires coming through the double wall. I think what we are going to do is this..
Our bathroom wall is right behind where all the wires were entering our garage. So the plan is to put the 26 port switch in the bathroom, along with our wireless router, and then buy another Cisco Gigabit switch and put it in the audio rack. By doing this we will only have to deal with one wire going through the wall, and we can have all of the equipment in the HT on it's own switch.

The only question is... By having some 10/100 devices on the switch will it slow down the others on that switch? Should I get a 10/100 switch and a gigabit switch, and run 10/100 devices on their own switch thereby allowing the gigabit devices to run full speed?

Hmmmm... - sorry, definitely out of my area of expertise. Maybe try posting that question in the computer sub forum - I have seen a couple of really knowledgable people posting over there.
