  1. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello Enthusiasts! I've had a HT in my walkout level for 15 years. Over Xmas vacn I've been adding some cabinets, relocating electronics, moving closets, etc. I'm almost done but am trying to figure out how to suppress the HVAC noise I've exposed by opening up a new under stairs storage area...

    Yo! I'm nearing the final stages of my build out, and I'm insulating. I couldn't go with resillient channel due to some space considerations, so I splurged on the Roxul (and some Johns Manville) Safe N Sound. I've got it in the walls, and and am working on the dual layer for the ceiling. Can...

    During the build of my dedicated HT room I requested a 1 ton, 300 CFM split ducted system to be installed. Unfortunately what got installed was a 1.5 ton 450CFM system (Goodman GSX 130181BA compressor with matching Goodman air handler). I was ill at the time and didn't discover what had happened...

    I need to start thinking about HVAC, but I need a little help. My theater will be about 16x24 and it's in a basement. 3 of the walls are foundation walls (superior walls). My equipment will be out in a separate room that is 6x6. I plan to have one supply vent coming into the theater in the...

    I need some advice on the HVAC set-up for my basement HT (30x11x8.5). The room has foundation walls on 3 sides and on average is at 68° in summer and 66° in winter. Below is a link to a YouTube video that might help illustrate what I’m about to ask. I believe I have three options. The first...

    Putting the final pieces together and was about to pull the trigger on a mini split but had a thought and figured better safe than sorry. How should I exchange air to/from my room? I have it sealed up very tightly as I went to the nines soundproofing and don't want to have trouble with stale...
  7. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Started construction on the home theater/music room. I did a lot of research and am building a room within a room design. The early research i did indicated that the best thing to do with the ductwork was to use a spray in it to reduce the sound transmission. However, after recently...

    I will be installing some sort of HVAC in my theater next month or so and am concerned with the noise it produces. It has been bothersome since the house was built. The HVAC contractor installed a high static blower so when it reaches full speed on the ramp up, it's quite loud. Heaven forbid...

    Hi everyone, I have been scouring the net trying to find an optimal solution to quelling the noise from my noisy outdoor A/C condenser unit, and my search has led me (surprisingly, at least initially) away from HVAC forums and towards acoustics, studio, and HT construction forums. I have a...

    I am in need of help in finding reading material or any info that will help me figure out how to set up the HVAC for my room. I have been looking through the threads, but I'm not finding the detailed "how to" info that would help me figure this out. Can someone please point me in the right...
