Updated the screen wall, added acoustics panels of fiberglass and covered in black burlap. Removed the old acoustic form. Those two use triad subs running off a single plate amp were a great idea.... Except they are a beast to integrate with the real deal Rythmik sub. Everything is second had some sometimes a temp setup becomes long term, or gets obsoleted in a week because I find a unicorn.

Next up, cover some of the screen wall in velvet and some of the acoustic diffusers in GOM if I can find a source, start to get the new sub dialed in and convince myself a single sub for a while is okay, and wait impatiently for the emotiva 8100 since I sold my pre pro a while back and am using the analog output of the oppo direct to my amp....

Building some diffusion panels using existing auralex styrofoam diffusers which will be framed with wood and covered with GOM to match the existing GIK absorption panels.

I cannot tell a lie, I had a buddy who needed an afternoon of work build the frames.... And now it will take a few weeks till they are operational.... Need the GOM and a hanging system.

Will follow Anthony Grimani's approach of alternating diffusion and absorption and having at least fifty percent bare walls.

Thanks, guys. Yep, one step at a time and after several years.....

Anyway, just placed the order for from GOM FR701 black 408 color from GIK. Kills to be pay almost $20 a yard (including shipping) but it's also really the cheapest out there, and I really want this set of panels to visually match the existing panels I have...

.... which I purchased from GIK, with the FR701 fabric on them, about five years ago!

Still going strong, as you can see:

Re: The Garage Theater

Now I just gotta figure out a smart way to connect the hanging wire, since my panels will not have the nice open space on the back like the GIK ones.....
