I have the same ghetto wiring for my recliners

Re: Pimp My Garage

Hey Brad,

While I think of it. Have you thought about running a router around the inside of all of your wall panels? Just to take off the sharp corner? I pushed against one of my panels accidently yesterday while trying to install the projector and I can see a very faint line. I'm pretty sure sliding a piece of cardboard down there and a light iron will fix it up, but thought id mention it.

If you took off all the corners it would be much less likely to happen.

Cheers,
Simon

Re: Pimp My Garage

Beautiful room! I have a chair question for you. We are building a dedicated room in my basement and will have room for about the same amount of chairs that you have. I have been doing a bit of chair shopping on my own without my wife involved at this stage.

Pricing can be anywhere from $500-$800 per chair (and up, of course, but that is out of our range). Now those prices aren't too bad, but that is on a one chair basis, you take that times 8 or 9 and add tax/shipping... How did your wife handle that number?

Re: Pimp My Garage

Brad,

I think I'm going to go with the black speaker fabric you sent me....

Was that just from one location or multiple (rosebrand...etc)? Thanks and looking good!

Not as nice as yours, but they'll do.

I did try to round over those sharp edges with an orbital sander, when it comes to fabric covering time, I'll give them a once over to be sure. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks Prof - in the room, the seats feel like they really fill it up, but in the pictures, they look really dinky. I prob have room for another seat in the front row (or loveseat) - although it might be hard to find another matching Berkline in the pipeline. At least this way, plenty of room to get by on the sides, and ample distance to side surrounds.

Yeah, it definitely does add up, kind of scary that the seating will cost as much or more than the projector.

She hasn't tracked the expenses all that closely. Maybe she's just numb at this point. She does ask once in a while "are we still on the budget" though - not quite sure what that means, I'll have to look into it.

Ultimately, I think as long as the bills get paid, she's not too concerned. I always seem to have some expensive hobby or another - this one just maybe a bit more expensive than usual.

Thanks Greg - Rosebrand is the only place I've seen that carries that particular (wide) speaker cloth. One thing I forgot to mention, the wide material comes folded in half on the roll. After I cut out my pieces, I ironed them to try to get rid of the fold mark, although it probably wasn't really necessary, since once stretched over a panel and stapled, it probably would have pulled the fold mark right out anyway.

Re: Pimp My Garage

I have a new idea for bass for you or nebrunner, since I don't have the space right now

1-2 DTS10 kits (handling <10-50Hz)
1-2 JTR Growler DUO (handling 45-90Hz)
Behringer DCX2496 to EQ


Not sure on total price, but..I might write this down for my future plans if IB won't work in the next house....

Re: Pimp My Garage

So you are going to do it? (subs....do it....appease the beast)

Just think how sweet Battlefield 3 and MW3 will sound.

I'm also trying to decide if I should copy your side wall panel integration for my screen wall....? Then I could do around the screen and not behind it....going to reread your thread at work tonight.

Think it would work? Going to order fabric in the next couple days....after I find that tool you suggested for calculating area needed.
