how great the theater sounds!
Glad that you are pleased with the results of your work. Nothing like having a project go well (to counter all the times they don't:hissyfit:).

I plan to finish my ceiling treatment this weekend - the rest of the burlap came in so all I need now is some time.

By far, the most audible improvement came from putting the Monster traps in. The benefits from the ceiling traps are certainly showing up on the waterfalls but they are not as audible as what I noticed when the first 5 traps were put in the room. I suppose that means that the most audible ringing was suppressed early in the treatment process and what I am getting is now icing on the cake.

I am having thoughts about adding another sub sometime, but no definate plans right now. A DIY IB or LLT would be fun, but also physically challenging for me. I will either watch for a good used 18" Velodyne (no way on the $5k new Velo prices now) similar to the one I have now or maybe try a Hsu or SVS later in the year.

Did you start working on the added treatments? Are you putting them on the ceiling?
Not yet but they are ordered. When I ordered the back panels for them I have to order a case of what I think was 30 of them. I thought well, I have to have those so I went and got those also. I ordered yet another pair of GIK 244's also which will arrive soon. I have the fabric here already for that to be installed also.

I installed the new 244's on the back wall and plan to equalize the subwoofer soon, but I ordered the wrong color tile which by mistake was the pic used for my last order, so I will have to wait until I have returned the wrong ones for new ones. It would not make a decent photo until I could get the ceiling up next to the back wall finished but I will try and get some photos of the installation eventually.

They have corrected my order for the ceiling tiles near a week ago but they still have not shipped. :( There is a roll of insulation I have had for what seems like forever sitting out waiting to be put in and I will pick up some more.

On another note I have ordered a Panasonic LX3K camera with a 6 hour battery and 2G memory card that they said would arrive in about a week but that is being shipped to another location so it could take longer to receive. I should be able to get some much better photos then.

The new tiles will be here tommorow and I will try and get some new measurements then when I am done placing those in. I might need to pick up another roll of R19 as well.

I went and ordered a Sigma DP2 camera instead of the LX3K and that should arrive in 1-3 months. It's good for shooting in low light situations. :nerd:

The tiles have been here for quite awhile but I have not got around to installing them yet. I will do that when the new camera arrives. I have not redone the equilization filters yet and that really needs to be done but I almost feel like it's measuring a final measurement which goes against my morals because a pro with $$$ gear should do an official measurement. I do not have the extra cash laying around for doing that but if I did I would. :innocent: I thought I would just say the tiles arrived for now and checking them they are the right ones this time. When I do install them I will try with the single R19 roll since it could be enough.
