Re: Fourth and Final

Thank you. That was my intention to make it look a bit less like a science project !

Thank you. The "cosmetic" projects never seem to end. Next up is to recover my ceiling cloud acoustic panels in black GOM (currently gray) and move them forward a tad (as I have moved my speakers previously) --- and add the 4th one I removed when installing my Atmos speakers. Further downstream is to cover the 4 columns (which contain the side and rear surrounds) with gray GOM DIY acoustic panels. Since the two side surrounds are directly across from one another, and are incased in these solid columns, it is very easy to see the opposite wall reflection when looking at an impulse response. So the covering of the columns is for acoustic and cosmetic reasons (as is the color change and movement of the ceiling cloud.)

After that, I may add some black material (GOM or black velvet) to the side walls in at least the front half of the room - or not !!

And some time during all of this, I plan to actually use the theater for its primary purpose - watching movies and college football. It, on occasion, becomes easy to confuse the journey with the destination - at least for me.

I was thinking of doing the the same thing myself..I believe that it improves the perceived contrast...
If you do it I would be interested to hear what you think of it..

The dealer I use has a room they label "The Black Hole", COMPLETELY covered in very black material. The "perceived" contrast is off the charts!

I painted the front half of my theater room with Benjamin Moore's Super Flat black paint. It completely soaks up light... that's an option to be considered that's not material (just a word to the wise: keeping it streak free while painting isn't easy. It also wasn't easy to find (the BM dealer near me only had 2 gallons on hand... I was told folks rarely ask for it).

Love the gear list, by the way.

I have some strengths but painting is not one of them. It takes me longer to mask than it does to paint, and then it still doesn't look very good. The cloth approach will be more expensive (and a lot more effort), but it will provide more uniformity to the overall "feel" of the theater, given the way I plan to do it.

And thanks on the gear list comment. Not a lot of changes planned BUT, I do plan to replace my 4 ceiling speakers one Triad finally releases their just announced Atmos speakers. I will eventually get a 4K source [e.g. new Oppo or maybe the Kaleidescape Strato] and also [maybe] the Kaleidescape DV700.
