And it even works! Zero hours on the tubes.
Looks like a G90, feels like a G90....
(is that a 4-gun CRT, or just Ted's head)
Drywall up on the walls, the ceiling is next!
2" conduit to projector location for control and video
Sony G90 Projector Arrives:
Page 2 - Drywall, insulation, and G90 arrival
Detail of soffit around new steel beam. Looking from behind the screen wall.
Soffit around beam and duct work. Soffit face will be constructed of 1" high density fiber board. Duct will be covered with 1" duct insulation board.
Detail of soffit on other side of the theater. This soffit will be completed with 5/8" drywall only, since it is entirely within the room envelope.
Long view of soffit. Conduits for speaker cables will run here. Entire space will be insulation filled.
The best construction screws ever. Deep screw head, strong, and has serrated threads.
Into storage, with the screen, theater seats, GOM fabric, and everything else. A good place to get inspiration to finish the theater.
Headed towards the theater door.
The area where the equipment rack will be mounted, adjacent to the theater entrance
View from the door to the front of the theater. The screen is a mock up to check size, as is the platform. The chairs are all I could afford after building this room.
Headed back out the door. Graphik Eye rough in on the right.
Wall construction detail. Shows double walls isolated from each other, insulation and double 5/8" drywall.
Conduits for speaker cables installed in soffit with insulation to eliminate resonance and vibration.
Long view of conduits and soffit framing. Ted the Theater Builder added for scale.
Soffit around duct work and beam. This duct will have insulating board applied and the soffit will be built from high density MDF.
MDF underside of the right soffit that encloses the duct work. Screw heads will be filled with joint compound and sanded smooth.
Steel frame for acoustic door and door seal. Door assembly has an STC rating of 51. Door has 3 lead sheets inside and is way heavy. More mass = less sound transmission.
Framing for the raised platform at the rear of the theater. Since the entrance is also raised, it gives the impression that the front of the theater is sunken.
Front of framing for the platform. The conduits are for bass shaker installation in the seats.
Equipment rack, recycled from duty in a computer equipment room. Very solid.
Chief mount installed on theater ceiling. Bracket is mounted to a 3/4" plywood board that is lagged to the ceiling joists.
Mounted and leveled, side view.
Rear view showing my CCE Belden 1694A and Canare RGBHV Cable.
Projector was lifted into place by five men, not an easy job since the projector mount is over eight feet up. I'm glad to have it mounted and operational!
