  1. Home Audio Acoustics
    Ok, well I finally got carpet in the HT. I have 4 SI HT18s (one in each corner). Each 12 cubes tuned to around 17hz. My build thread is below for anyone that wants to see the room layout...

    I am looking for something that will be very effective at eating up the light reflection from my screen. I would like to get something that I don't have to order, and I came up with the idea of the carpet that Car Stereo Shops use for subs. Would it be good for a front stage or do I need to get...

    I am building a riser for my rear seats. My basement floor is a concrete slap, padding then carpet. This is a townhouse and moving in the future. Was wondering what I could put between the riser and carpet, so after time the "whole" outline etc...isn't indented into the carpet Thanks, Jeff

    I am in the final stages, for now :D, of my home theater build. All the surfaces are painted and the last thing I need to install are 6" wide stained oak boards on the walls... The boards are going to be installed similar to block paneling and I plan on inserting frames and wall treatments in...
  5. IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi. I have what may be (probably is) a stupid newbie question. After reading this forum for a while, I had more or less decided to make the jump to IB. I had planned to do it under the floor in an area near the wall with the plasma TV where the hardwood floor is exposed. Alas, when I went...

    My small theater is 80% completed. I went to Home Depot and a private carpet dealer for measurements. Maybe the installation isn't as good but Home Depot beat the local guy by $600. So I had HD measure my basement and stairs for $35. Went in there twice after undecided. So tonight I went in and...

    Looking at door products to soundproof the door..... I was wondering if anyone had an automatic door sweep over carpet. Most pics online show them in pro studios and such where they have vinyl tile or some hard surface to seal against. My theater will have carpet inside and transition to some...

    Hey all, a friend has a very white room which reflects quite badly and completely washes out the image. So which is best' curtains, paint or carpet on the walls? I guess carpet or thick curtains would add some sound proofing as well? The projector is a mitsubishi hc1100 on a glass bead 120"...

    I am building a HT in the basement. I am wondering if I need to build a floor on the concrete or if I can just install a good carpet with a vapor pad. I KNOW you should, both for sound proofing and the sub will be more effective on a wood floor. However I guess what I am really asking is has...

  12. SVSound
    Is anyone using carpet spikes on this cylinder sub? Does it make a difference in how it performs? I'd like to try some but I am wondering about how stable the sub would be and how they would attach to the bottom plate. How do I remove the rubber pads on the base?

    Hello to all, New to the forum, and have found some great information here. I've searched for this everywhere and cannot find anything concerning my issue. I feel that I must be missing something!! I'm doing a basement HT setup. I planning to lay down some DRI-core sub-flooring as well as...

    I have a very dry basement since digging it out and putting in a drainage system. My question is do I need to put anything under the carpet padding cause I see here some put down plastic as a vapor barrier im guessing.
  15. Home Audio Acoustics
    I am getting ready to redo the flooring in my listening room. This room is for 2 channel only - no home theater. Currently I have wall to wall carpet on a very squeaky floor - my cat can't even walk in without being noticed. I plan in screwing the floor down better before re-carpeting. I am...
  16. DIY Speakers
    Seems like just about everything under the sun has been stuffed into speaker enclosures for damping. Has anyone ever used, or heard of, carpet padding being used? I have new 5/8" carpet padding left over after my house was recarpeted. I've actually doubled it up and stapled it into my Nat P...

    I don't think i am going to be able to curve the carpet for my theater stage. What kind of carpet do most people use for the curved stages.
  18. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I am trying to find a black burbur for the stage in my HT. No luck so far, but HD has that really think outdoor carpet my wife says to use due to the price. This is just for the stage, but does anyone know if with this really thin stuff you can use a pad? And whats the best way to secure it? I...
