Hey, I was advised to do so (blow test).chanille Nhan, it's what we ended up with on my tube traps...it will pass your er "blow test" ..... :wtf:
Funny stuff - now get to work.I feel like a **** fool right now. I'm at joAnn'e blowing on fabric. There's not too many options besides burlap and see-thru fabric that can pass the blow test. I want something beter looking than burlap and is in a reddish burgundy color.
Thanks, Mike. I look forward to it.Dazian fabric makes a nice looking acoustic cloth called Expo and it's one third the cost of GOM. I did my theater in Black and Deep Burgundy and I'm happy with it. Another thing that is important is that it's fire retardent and fire rated.
Nhan, I'll bring over some of my Dazian Expo leftovers on Saturday when I come by.
Website for Dazian but I see that Expo is being discontinued:
they probably have a replacement if you call them.
There is aluminum paper on half the tube so I can choose reflective or not, and then a layer of normal window screen underneath the chenille...Hey, I was advised to do so (blow test).
But isn't your tubes wrapped in some kind of plasticky material below the chenille? I'll have to look into getting some... I'l stop by JoAnn's again and ask
Nhan,Looks like you had a great time, Lou! Thanks for the advice and pics.
I have a horizontal support member in each panel. I will probably remove it, since it's pretty sturdy after I reinforced the corners with steel brackets. It'll make working with the insulation and batting much easier. Thanks for the suggestion on just gluing it to the back and front of the insulation.
Also, I thought about your idea of suspending it from the wall. I bought an aluminum pipe (instead of the suggested water pipes) to work with. What did you use to attach those to the frame and wall? I bought some 6-inch wood screws and then enclosing those screws with the aluminum cylinder for visual purpose (copper pipes would work, too, and are inexpensive, but they are more prone to oxidation). Maybe if you can share your method, I won't have to reinvent the wheel
Thanks, Chad. I mocked hung them (still no fabric wrapping yet) using some pretty cool flushed picture frame tools I found at Lowes. They look really good against the wall. I gave up the idea of trying to space them out from the wall, as there is really not enough space for the speakers in the first place. I'll take some pics this coming Sunday when I get the custom bases installed on my LS6s.Looking good Nhan!
