Ever thought about Towing In your L/R speakers a bit? (angled more towards the "sweet spot", if you will). Mine are towed in just a bit so a triangle is formed where their fronts are aiming at Me more or less. Just curious, is all.

Sorry guys, it's been a super busy with family related stuff. I'm still alive don't worry.

I even managed to complete a few tasks around the basement

All of the vents have been installed! No more having to look at ugly open spaces in walls or ceilings!

I still need to get out and buy some poster frames. I also need to patch up the space heading down the stairs since everything made it in the space in one piece.

Once that's done I can then paint and install the rails.

I'd take pictures, but my DSLR broke and I haven't bought a replacement. I need to borrow a point and shoot soon!

Thanks! It's a nice feeling being able to finally kick my feet up and watch movies and games...

I haven't messed with it that much. Honestly I'm impressed with how they sound now. While I was watching content, it's a nice solid wall of clear sound... The sound just wraps around you like a warm expensive blanket.
I'll be sure to mess with them once I finalize a few things.

Just materials and install costs? I'd have to check my excel spread sheet but off the top of my head, I'd say it was about $8000.

So far it's been great! The screen material is great! There's no hot spotting, while making the image POP!

The light spillage is less then my last screen, and I notice better black levels with ambient light.

The tab tensions works well. Once you set it, you're good to go! I'll give you a bit of a pro tip. Once it arrives and you install it, lower the screen and let it settle before you adjust the tension to get rid of the waves.

I was on the fence until I had my second demo at their facility.

Overall I'm happy with the purchase...

Let me know if you have any additional questions!

I found a older point and shoot, so I can take some pictures for you guys later...

Not a problem

So I snapped pics of the vents (boring I know) and realized that I hate this stupid camera.





Yay for not seeing holes in the space!

I'm going to be finishing up with the washroom soon. As soon as I tidy up, I will snap a few pictures...

Oh and it's a GREAT day for Man United fans

So I know I have been slacking for a bit, but it's with good reason...



Yeppers, we are expecting our first child!

My wife bought those as a surprise Christmas gift...

I've been doing a lot of other things around the house to prepare for the little one, so I haven't had time to work on the basement.

I do plan to find some frames locally so that I can hang some posters.

I also need to buy a new DSLR as this point and shoot is not cutting it

Well guys, I haven't been posting much because....

....


..........



.................Our house is up for sale


Yeppers, all the blood sweat and tears I put into the basement will now be enjoyed by someone else.

My wife and I decided that we could use the added space. So we went out and bought a larger fully detached house, for all of us to enjoy.

It's sad but I'll be back. The basement is HUGE and there's enough space for a dedicated 27X14 HT room ALONG with another 27X14 for added finished basement space. There's also another 12X13 space that I plan to create a play room for our child to play and have fun in.

Well that kind of sucks after ALL the hard work & Time it took, BUT, as you noted, the new place has a huge basement & you can prob make a Bigger HT room (?) than what you have now

Good luck!

WOW!

Well, hopefully your realtor told you the work you did increased the value of your place, I can't image you'll have much trouble selling the place, the market still appears to be a sellers one.
