Re: Dual purpose bonus room HT

Flood is in the past! Here are some pictures of my new floors



And this weekend I finally got around to putting up the complicated crown!

First I did the outside corners:


This left me with a double-cope for all the "long" pieces:




I chiseled away the inside corner to make sure the joint looks tight at the bottom:




And I put up some of the LED's. I went with 12v SMD5050's, 300 lights per 5M strand. They are quite bright! I will probably replace the controller so with one that can dim to a lower brightness!


It is starting to look good but I have a TON of work left to do!!!

Nice job on the moulding - that is one that I still struggle to get clean-looking, and you nailed yours - looks great!

The new floors look great, eyekode. And good job with the crown. I had my first experience with it last year, and while it can be a huge pain, it can also make a really nice difference in a room.

Re: Dual purpose bonus room HT

Painting is almost done (a little bit of trim/door to paint). And our sofa finally got here. It is a monster but is very comfortable! My wife helped with picking out curtains etc. We have not yet settled on carpet. I also blacked out all the windows with blackoutez. The blackout worked pretty well but some edges still show a little bit of light. It is a huge improvement though! We can watch a movie in the middle of the day no problem. The dark front wall does a great job of disappearing when the lights go out too. It gives a much more immersive experience.

With all that seating this is where the dog went first

Still a ton of work to do on the speakers but I have _almost_ passed the wife's "it's done" milestone .

Re: Dual purpose bonus room HT

An update! I finished my surround speakers that are built into the soffit. They are DIY and I did the measurements/crossovers using Holm Impulse, Arta, and WinPCD. They are quite sensitive but are a 4ohm load (which my Pioneer 1222 seems to handle with no problem).

The boxes are 1cu ft and most of it is hidden in the soffit. The exposed portion is wrapped in cherry.

Pictures or it didn't happen right?

Some stereo listening to verify the final crossover:


And installed:




Now on to the surround backs which will use similar drivers but will be inwall completely.

Thanks for reading!

Re: Dual purpose bonus room HT

Nice work on those speakers, eyekode. Good compromise to have some hidden above, and not give up internal volume. The exposed enclosure looks great, and the angled baffles allow you to direct the sound well. Thumbs up!
