They don't have to be free standing. You can do the same design but make the side and top of the 'box' that the speakers are in just frame and cloth.

If you have to keep the box, fill it completely with absorption.

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Are there any Insteon and Keypadlinc owners here?

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Mudders are here! Yippee! Was able to sneak in some "before" shots of my buddy's oh-so-awesome drywall work. Will post some "after" shots when the mudders leave.

Does everyone recommend something like Silentseal(?) for filling all the gaps on the other side of the wall (the garage space wall)?

Equipment rack and fridge is going here:



Control panel will have a hinged door which will be painted to match whatever color I choose for the wall:



Back of room with riser:



View from riser looking out of room into entrance:



View outside garage looking in:



Insteon dimmer switch bank (Track, Rope, Sconces, Screen - walkway dimmer is hidden in garage room):



Insteon 8 button keypadlinc:



Tomorrow we start building the stage and screen wall. Fun!!

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Inside rack is now built. Question: we left a small gap at the back, bottom of the cavity mainly for the heat from the fridge to go somewhere. Necessary or not? The walls of the rack are MDF then green glue then 5/8 drywall.



Stage being built today..









Thinking of getting this framed and put outside the entrance. It's this or a movie poster either side of the door way.

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

I've got Insteon elsewhere in the house. Not sure yet for my theater lighting control.. The LED indicators on the dimmers might be a bit distracting..

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

One completed stage. Working on the columns for the speakers now.



Thinking about this for the color scheme:



Going with possibly a two-tone paint scheme: Black ceiling, red walls 2/3, bottom 3rd gray. Having a hard time with it though because ideally I need something to contrast the crown molding on the walls and ceiling and that means something like a white satin molding, which might be too bright. Still need to give it some thought.. Is there a way I can take a picture of my room and superimpose different colors on it?

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Hey Matt - how did you do that? Way cool! If I upload a better angle can you do it again, or tell me how you did it?

Cheers.

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Sure I can do it again... It was just a real quick job... no texture or anything fancy. I used the path tool in Photoshop to take out the walls and used that as a template to make a panel the same shape with the new colors.
