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:
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.
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.
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.
I always find it quite satisfying to recall building the speakers. I built them in the theater space before it was a theater. It was a small speaker factory for a while, building 7 channels and two 4' x 4' x 2' horn subs.
I was looking for a local HT designer and saw that Bryan Pape was in my neck of the woods. I tried to contact him on here and his website but both messages bounced back.
Does anyone have his latest contact info?
We are re-doing the theater after a flood. Luckily the equipment was ok, but the carpet & drywall are toast so that's getting redone this and next week. Opportunity to change since my last arrangement wasn't optimal.
I want to move the two subs from the front-right corner and put them both in...

Star Ceiling – Fiber optics vs Painted
A star ceiling is a definite plus for any home theater or bedroom... but what is the best way to go? Should you install Fiber Optics or have the ceiling painted (either by yourself or by a professional)? Well, that depends...
