    Hi all ... my first post here... My room is very bad in terms of acoustics. See my gallery here http://www.blu-ray.com/community/gallery.php?member=bizmord One thing that's helping is a big sectional rug that covers 70% of the room floor. My walls are bare, there is absolutely no acoustic...

    How do I calculate the size of the inlet openings for the front of the riser? My riser will be constructed out of 2x8's at the perimeter with the middle "joists" being 2x6's spaced at 12" on center. I'll fill the cavities with 6" paperfaced fiberglass batts "hung" from the top of the framing...

    So I have decided to build a riser for my second row since I decided to open my room up all the way for my needs. The room tappers down to about 11' 6" so that is how wide the riser will be. Now how deep should it be, and tall should it be. My front row will be a nice leather sectional(not...

    I need to raise my futon which is pulling 2nd row duty in my HT. I'm leaning towards a moveable riser that sits on top of my carpet, 12 inches high. Instead of a conventional riser, or subs in a riser, I'm wondering if it would work well to build 2 subs, place them side by side, and sit the...

    ALMFamily gave me some help with this earlier which is fab. In the directions for construction of the riser I found They suggest using rubber feet under the joists, however their riser was to go onto an existing timber floor where as mine is to be built onto a solid concrete floor so does any...

    I have read all that I can find in the forums about construction of risers and the only thing that I have come up with is to use roofing felt on the concrete floor to protect the lumber. I know that i could always use PT lumber but I would rather not. Does anyone have any...
