Don't see why not - certainly not the only way of course. I'm going to do the same panel approach to cover my false wall.

I'm going friction fit like chinadog (Bud).



So, how do you like the chairs?

So far so good - haven't spent much time sitting in them yet really, since most of the time when I'm in the HT, I'm still puttering around and not sitting still.

I do get some chair envy when I check Simon and Jason's though.

Re: Pimp My Garage

Thanks for the speaker fabric sample. I ended up going with it, and using the "fuzzy" warmer side for the outside, looks better matching to the velvet on the Carada.

Hopefully I'll get done tonight!

Re: Pimp My Garage

Hey Brad,

Some interesting and I imagine frustrating results in the REW thread

Have you tried the sub in the room (ie not behind the screen wall) to see if those peaks/nulls change?

Cheers,
Simon

Re: Pimp My Garage

Brad,
Great thread...thanks for taking the time to put this information together. I'm just starting my project, and it's nice to have notes from those who have gone before.

Quick question about your floor. Did you perform any special treatments on the concrete between the front stage and rear riser, such as lifting it? Also did you fill your riser/stage with sand or insulation?

I've read on other posts, that this is sometimes done to help the acoustics of concrete.

No, nothing really - just pad and carpet over bare concrete.

The stage is filled with sand; the riser with insulation.

Re: Pimp My Garage

Brad,

Have you given more thought to getting a couple DTS10s behind your screen coupled with a half dozen MFWs or a couple Growlers to handle the midbass?

I bet your REW graphs would be much easier.
