Re: The Garage Theater

Is this with bass trapping? That is quite a waterfall graph. It would be a great time to convert that riser to see if it actually makes a difference & how much of one.

Great job on the build!

Re: The Garage Theater

Yeah, considerable bass trapping, I think. Maybe not enough???

Front corners each have one 2'x4'x4" trap straddling the corner, from GIK.
The floor/wall connection at the front under the screen has two 2'x4'xsix inch thick GIK traps straddling it.

There are several five inch traps (sheets of OC covered in black burlap) on the front wall behind the screen.

There are two two six inch thick GIK traps on the rear wall.

(And the riser is full of insulation, but doesn't have any openings, so isn't really doing a lot.)

Guess I need more or heavy EQ!

Re: The Garage Theater

Alas it may remain a mystery. I have spent the afternoon trying to get single channel output on REW on the Mac, both with and without SoundFlower and with the latest beta (22), but it's not possible via HDMI.

Re: The Garage Theater

I eventually got it working.

Then, between the DSPEAKER device and some manual tweaking from my calibrator, we got it nicely dialed in.

Re: The Garage Theater

And some new photos/ design overviews. Note that the GOLD LCR were replaced with BRONZE LCR (cost cutting) but since I sit so close, this wasn't a big loss for the front row.
