The only thing that comes to mind right away for me are zip ties for something semipermanent, or velcro tape for easy removal. I'm not sure if those units get warm, which might affect the longevity of the tape.

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

I think I have a way that should look nice and work... I purchased some 1x1 Oaks strips, and some 1/4" x 1" Oak, glued them together, and now I am cutting them into blocks that will be used to separate the pieces. I will then use a 1/4" x 1" strip that will be screwed down on top of the blocks (holding the pieces in place). I will post some pics when I get this completed. Hopefully this new way will work.

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

Here is my solution (mock up)... I still need to make a new back board that is longer and wider (2'x8') which should allow me to add my 2 TV tuners as well as my other i3NUC to the setup. What do you think?

I think it looks great, good job.

Thanks, I made it out of 1"x1" Oak with a layer of 1/4" Oak glued to it and then cut in 3" chunks. For the top I will be cutting it into sections so that each piece can be removed without taking off one large strip... Or at least that is the plan. Hopefully I will be able to get the next part done tomorrow.

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

Looks like someone needs some custom cables!

It looks good, really clean. Is there enough room for the components to get some air?

E: (just noticed I already mentioned heat above... sorry, it's still early).

The only devices that i think will get warm are the 2 i3NUCs... I have been thinking of mounting all the pieces to a piece of pegboard and then standing the pegboard off from the wall with a 2x4. If I do it that way the only area that won't be getting air is the 1" area on each side where the wood touches the component. The i3NUCs have their cooling on the bottom so I def need ventilation under them. The other option would be to make the whole back platform solid and use a hole saw to cut a vent hole for the i3NUCs, and install a small fan under it (the board would still be raised off the wall by at least a 2x4 distance). What do you think of that?

I think I'd definitely cut a hole under the components once your layout is finalized. Can't hurt, you won't be able to see it, and anything that has the potential to get warm will have a little extra breathing room.

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

I just punched in my room dimensions in and got this...

What does this tell me I need to do in the room? Do I need to focus on the 22, 31, and 67 Hz to absorb first, and then work on the other frequencies?

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

22 and 31 you're not going to touch - just being honest. All that is telling you is that those are where your modes are and where they'll be in the room. It tells you nothing about the time domain, getting reflections dealt with, getting decay time down to a reasonable level across the spectrum, etc.

It's really just a way that If you run into a problem, look at these and see if the problem matches up with one of these so you have a better idea of how to address it either via movement or treatment - or if neither of those can work and it's a peak, equalize it.

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