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

2" behind the false wall is fine for all the surfaces.

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

My Danley sub is firing up through the platform about 8" from the rear wall... Would it be better to do 2" on the rear wall, and 8" on the wall behind the AT screen?

No. Just 2" on the front is fine. more worried about thickness on the rear wall.

Where do I find the pins(?) to attach the Roxul Rockboard to the wall behind the screen?

T pins for curtains can work, or you can just build more firring and friction fit it.

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

I have 7 of the 9 panels built as of today... I am waiting on the GOM to be delivered, so I just put the muslim on the back and turned them around for now. Once I have the 9 completed I will make the rest out of 4" Roxul R80. I will then double up on them for the rear wall to make it 8" thick.

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

Tonight a couple of friends came over to see the HT progress.... I played some music videos, and the beginning of The Bourne Identity to see how it sounded. We played it a reference levels, and it sounded great (even though the room is not tuned yet, as it only has 7 panels resting on the walls). My friend brought the Chemical Brothers video, and we proceeded to play it at reference levels.... I wanted to see how loud it was outside since it was around 11pm, so we went around the house and I pulled up my sound meter app... 42db at reference level with heavy bass! I have to admit I never expected it to be that quiet. I asked my friends what they thought of the sound, and they said it was distortion free all the way down to the lowest notes. One of my friends said he never expected it to sound so good being in a Home Theater, and was shocked when he saw how quiet it was outside. I can't wait until we get the rest of the tuning completed and the 2nd door sealed. After that there will be one more step... Get the minidsps hooked up and tune the speakers properly. One thing we found out tonight was if you want the best bass... You sit in the 2nd row seats, and if you want the most open sound you sit in the first row. I know this is because I did a quick setup with the 4520, and just ran it in one position instead of 8.

I would definitely recommend to anyone to go with double wall, OSB/GG/DW if you want to get the room quieter.

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

Got the appraisal on the Volvo yesterday... The appraiser left to finish it off when he hit $15k! Too bad the car wasn't worth a third of that.

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

I completed 4 of my panels today... 4" of Roxul R80 with GOM wrapped around the front and Muslim for the rear.

I stapled the Muslim, and also the GOM to the 1/2" x 3 1/2" Poplar frames that I made.

Question... Is it enough to staple the material or do I need to use Duct tape or something else too? The reason I ask is I can see the material unraveling where it was cut, and I see a lot of strain on the material around the staples.

If you have to use duct tape I recommend gorilla glue brand. I used it to tape up a damaged box truck in February and it's still holding strong.
