Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Side columns built. Sub is a tight fit -- might have to downsize the sub!



Tomorrow we should get the top column (center speaker) completed and A/V rack shelves. Then we're pretty much done until paint!

Oh, by the way... very nice colors. Very similar to my HT. It gives a nice warm feel.

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Thanks Matt.

BTW does anyone have any experience with rope light on a black ceiling? I heard the light spill is not that great but wondering if it's bad enough to not even bother with it.

I have not tired it but a buddy of mine did and said it did not work to well. The dark color just adsorbed the light.

I have a dark grey ceiling and you can see the blue light, but it's not brilliant!

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

So today we planned on finishing construction, leaving just paint, A/C and carpet remaining but building the columns for the screen wall took us all day. We spent a lot of time deliberating over whether to GOM the entire column surface or dry wall parts of it and just leave a large enough area around the speakers to GOM later. So I have some questions: What do you recommend we do? If we GOM the entire columns (most expensive route) how is the fabric applied? Is it easier to build seperate panels and attach them at various parts of the columns? Is it better to staple the fabric around the columns? Any help appreciated as myself and buddy are at a complete loss as to what to do next!

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

What I would do if it were my columns is to staple GOM or Speaker cloth to inner sides of the columns..and make up removable framed panels of GOM for the fronts..
That way you have easy access to the speakers..
I wouldn't use any solid material anywhere on the columns..
