    I have some questions about covering the area around the main screen hole. A friend told me to use black Guilford of Maine fabric, but I'm unsure of the best way to do it. Originally I was going to build 4 separate panels and screw them onto the way from behind. I really don't want to do that...

    Would there be any issue with using acoustical ceiling tile on walls covered with GOM as opposed to using something like JM Linacoustic as a backer? I see they both have an NRC rating of 0.55. Armstrong has a specific tile for this purpose and is prefinished black.

    Hi all, First ever post on HT shack, although I have been reading the posts as I'm about to embark on creating my first dedicated home theater in my new house. Very excited, but also trying to analyze all the details before I start building. My first question is 'Which wall to place the...

  14. Home Audio Acoustics
    Aloha! I live in a house that is on stilts and I was noticing quite a bit of movement "vibration" and I was thinking that wall or floor resonance could affect or color the sound just like if it were coming from the LFE cabinet but in a larger aspect. 4 way's of flex so to speak, with only a...

    Guys, I am trying to pull off a budget theater with a Benq 1070. I will be dealing with ambient light and WAF factor. as she doesn't want to walk around in the dark all the time. But we do have blackout blinds to cut off the direct sunlight. I am a terrible painter but already have a wall...
  16. SVSound
    Probably a dumb question. Better to plug a sub into the wall or surge protector ok? I've seen some people mentioning that surge protectors can be current limiting and lower dynamics for a power amp.. is that a myth? What about a more expensive power conditioner?

    Hello ... We're moving into a new home and I had some a question about installing a wall mount. I have a rather heavy-duty one that I would like to re-use with my new TV, which has a rotating arm that comes out. The mount itself is about 60 lbs and the TV is 60 lbs. It mounts to 2 wood studs...

    Has anyone watched this flick? Its a long one, 3 hours approximately and there is nothing visually or auditory that stands out. What it has going for it is a good story, great lines, and gratuitous sex. I rented it but I will purchase this once it goes on sale. I highly recommend this film.

    Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but I'm looking for some small pieces of art that I could put over my rear surround in-wall speakers that would allow sound to pass. Anyone done this? I'm sure I could make something but was curious to know if they're available out there already. Thanks.
