You could also hang strips from the ceiling by sandwiching the fiberglass between strips of 1x4

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Yesterday we worked on the stage and today we got the frame put together.

Here is the screen frame temporarily hanging about 2' farther away then it will be mounted... Viewed from the front row.

Here is from the 2nd row...

Yup... I have no intention of ever having to buy a new screen because I want a bigger one. We sat in the MLP and was testing how it looks, and it looks like it will be a perfect size... Not too big, and not too large IMO.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I like it, go big or go home, that should be your motto with this room. Big horns big screens, now you just need big amps, and big seats.

Not sure anyone would be able to handle it with big amps... 112db with 1 watt, which gives us about 125db at the MLP with the horns. The subs should be around the same or more with the Yamaha amp. Just don't have a way to get the bass to the same level of efficiency.

I do think I will have a chance at the Highest SPL with the least power in a HT room.

I like the idea.... We also have some rubber sheets that I might be able to hang for some damping too.

Build you some FirstWatt F5t, they will be physically big, but about 25-50 watts per a channel. Clean watts, clean sound. All so I don't know if you seen my threads on the Crown D45, but that is a great bang for the buck power amp(100-150 on flea bay). They sound wonderful, and are rack mountable.

Could be a possibility for the future...
