Never a good thing but glad to hear you're mostly OK. Keep an eye on that back and neck - don't let it get too bad and document everything.

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

Glad your ok!(mostly). Definitely keep track of everything. Even the seemingly smallest back/neck injury can stem off into much larger problems. Now, if your theatre was finished, you just might need to add a bunch of extra recovery time! I think I read that theatre seats can actually be quite therapeutic! :wink:
Good luck.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I have been working on building my acoustic panels this week. I keep going to Lowes and cleaning them out of the 1/2" x 3 1/2" poplar for the frame assemblies. So far I have 5 made up (not covered yet though), and enough wood to build another 5 or 6. I hope to have the ones I have built on the walls by this weekend. Hopefully my fabric samples will arrive today so I can order the material for covering them. I am anticipating having 21 acoustic panels in the room (2x4), for the ceiling, and walls. For the bass trap soffits I am using R19 Denim (I think I need about 6 more packs). The Roxul R80 rockwool panels are turning out very easy to build.

You know the rule... Progress pics or it didn't happen! .

How are you feeling now? Hopefully some of the stiffness has gone and you're not suffering any long term issues.

Don't go overboard with too many thinner panels and not enough thicker ones and skew the decay time curve.

Still a little sore but my Chiropractor says I am getting better.
Here are a couple of pics of what I have made today....[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

The frames are 1/2" x 3 1/2" with a 1"x 1 1/2" inserted on the sides to space the Roxul from the wall.

I keep running out of the 1/2" boards as no one has much in stock.

Should I just use the 2" for the ceiling and behind the AT screen? I could then make up some 4" thick ones for the side walls, and some 8" for the rear wall. All the panels are the Roxul R80 Rockboard... not fiberglass insulation (just to be sure we are talking the same materials).

I ordered 14 yards of the black commando cloth we talked about for behind the screen wall.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Today I decided to do a little testing... Mind you the door can't be closed all the way, the hallway still needs another layer of Drywall, and outer door has yet to be sealed at all. I put on some music and tested the SPL at the garage door (outside of the theater).... 45db, my wife starts up her new Hyundai Genesis, and it goes to 65db... I walk around to the back of the house and enter the HT... reading is 92db! This from my cell phone app which I don't think is correct because when we watch movies it will never go above 92db... Even at reference levels and this was very loud today! I would be surprised if we were not over 100db. I am very satisfied with the results so far.
