  1. Rope tensioned or direct? Wood, PVC, or aluminum frame?

    DIY Screens
    I want a DIY 120" fixed screen that can be easily put up and taken down for storage, transport, and so little kids can't damage it when it's not being used. I know the main approach recommended here is painting. This won't work for me because there's a window in the middle of the wall where I...

  8. Two Eclipse Aluminum 10" vs. Maelstrom 18"

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I currently have two DIY 1259 sealed in 3.5 ft^3 each. Each one is powered by a Parts Express Bash 500 plate amp. I built them in 1998, when they were powered by a home audio Carver M-500t, but later upgraded the Bash plate amps. I have enjoyed them, but really NEED more and deeper output in my...

I found a lot of information, but not specifically to what I'm looking...

    DIY Screen Development and Testing
    Hey guys, I just came across the weirdest thing. Some artists make their own "Silver" pigment. You use normal cheap cooking oil as heat absober, add salt as grinding material as salt does not dissolve in oil. The you just add small cut peices of ordinary aluminum foil from your kitchen. Put all...

  14. Visibility of aluminum flakes in Black Widow mixes.

    General Screen Discussion
    I took some photos of my Black Widow screens that show the relative amount of aluminum flakes for comparison. The photos were taken about 8 feet from the screens using the maximum optical telephoto on my camera (8x), and the flash. A yardstick was included for size comparisons and as something...
  15. Horn tweeters V.S. aluminum dome tweeters

    Home Audio Speakers
    Which tweeter provides the bigger sweet spot, the horn tweeter or an aluminum dome tweeter? My local high-end theater equipment store just told me on the phone that horn tweeters have a very narrow listening area, while dome tweeters have a much wider sweet spot. In contrast, I found a few...
