Hi guys. I have been unlucky and got water damage in my basement. The floor in the cinema is damaged and needs replacement. Aaagh....the cinema was almost finished:hissyfit::crying:

The walls were fortunately not built on the floor, this was floating. Water damage was discovered so early that the walls are not damaged. I have good insurance and I have covered the damage, but it's sad because my HT should be done now. I'm going to make some changes in relation to what I had planned, I describe this with pictures when I'm ready. In the meantime, I keep on building my new speakers:bigsmile:

Wow. This is just sad. I don't think anyone could really appreciate how sad unless they built their theater themselves as you have. Makes me cringe (I built my own theater also)

Please keep us posted.

I think we all know how bad we would feel if this happened to us but it sounds like you are taking it pretty good. I'm glad your insurance will cover the damage and it sounds like your speaker building will keep you busy!

Soon after I finish my drywall (I'm mudding/sanding the soffits in both my theater and lobby) I will work on building a set of 7.1 speakers myself. I'm looking forward to it...actually I'm looking forward to anything other than drywall/soffit construction.

Finally I'm back again and I'm hungry to get the theater done, the front speakers are finished, the frame for the ATscreen is finished. Now it is to install cables and bass traps.

Hi, I have built complete five speakers and have two more before I am finished. Have mounted bass traps in corners and has tested a bit. It's getting really good. After the bass traps were installed, I had to turn down the volume to the bass. Looking forward to being finished with the speakers so that the measurement can begin.

It is not long until I'm finished, waiting for parts for the movie screen. Here you see the bass trap to the rear wall, size 190x110x28 cm and consists of heavy insulation.

Hi Ted. It's good to be back after a long brake. I've built speakers that I have changed a bit. Increased volume and changed the crossover to match the level of treble. Has played for a while, and speakers sound better and better.

Agree, it's exciting and satisfying to build my own speakers, and the best part is that the quality will be good at a reasonable price. I have seen your speakers and they look extremely nice.
