  1. I had thought of using Green Glue, but I did not have anymore left from my last theater... Inam not sure if it would have worked properly either. I do know irpt worked great on wood to sheetrock though. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  2. I figured the MDF would increase the stiffening. As far as the curve in the horn I believe the construction adhesive was but on thick enough to fill the gap in the curve. I mainly did the #3 pieces to avoid drilling into the horn, as I did not want to screw up. In addition I had originally thought of running 4 woofers, which would have required mdf on all 4 sides. When I started to look T how I wood have to arrange the panels, I decided 2 was enough. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  3. I sanded down the ribs, and then we used construction adheasive. For the woofer pads I used silicone, and I have to tell you the silicone is very strong...I have to pound a putty knife in between the seams to remove the woofer mounts. The construction adheasive works great, but you have to be careful with shear strength as if it gets a sideways movement it can fail. With the silicone adheasive it seems to hold up in every direction. I would be very tempted to just use silicone adheasive as I think it might be stronger in this situation. If you try it and do not like it...it is not hard to remove from the surfaces with a putty knife. I run the silicone for the pads overlapping the #3 panel ends, and it works great. I am in the process of removing the woofer pads to round them all (instead of square), and also when my router bit arrives I will route the ports with a 45 degree chamfer bit.

  4. Mine are being setup to where they are vertical due to the floor space they would take up. If you go this way either make your cabinet taller, or make some stands to get them at the proper height. Mine are 4' tall, and pretty close to my ear height for the driver....could go maybe a few more I chest but then I would have to raise my FP. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  5. I would work on the room acoustics. If you do not, then you will never know how good your current equipment really is. The RP160Ms are great IMO, and I had them for my front channels until I got my K402MEHs up and running. Now the RP160Ms are my surrounds, and for my wife's dance loft. A well treated room with good equipment can very well sound better than a untreated room with much more expensive equipment. The room is the first thing to upgrade IMO.

  6. As far as the Atmos channels they should be about 8 feet up...or whatever gives you a 45 degree angle. https://www.svsound.com/blogs/speaker-setup-and-tuning/74790851-the-art-of-speaker-placement Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  7. Have you tried angling your front speakers...also angle your center channel up, so it is aimed at your head at ear height. I would try angling your speakers an inch or so at a time and then listen to see what you like. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  8. I changed the rear cage, and the way the horn is supported...this is the center channel, and will also be the test for a cabinet. All of the front 3 will have the same framework...even if I decide to keep them as OB. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    I agree with your comments on use, but I do not see how it is possible that a person wearing a mask of any kind can have more of a chance of getting infected. The person who had the virus on their mask would have had it directly on their face if they did not have a mask. A person who takes it off properly and washes their hands is much better off IMO, then someone who did not even wear a mask at all. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    Yup, just make sure you put filters into the design to get reusable protection beyond a single cotton layer.[emoji6] Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    She is basically making 2 rectangles and attaching them together on 3 sides. The open end is where you insert the coffee filters. She uses pipe cleaner sticks cut down for the nose area and thes are sewn in before attaching the 2 rectangles together. She also sees in material to wrap around your ears. She has several fabric stores she goes to locally to buy material, and then sells them with all the profits going to locals in need. A local family was about to get evicted after 2 months of not paying their rent. The profits went to paying any months back for rent , house mods, a refrigerator, and a new car battery.

    I like this idea, but the same people who refuse to wear a mask will protest against the business for refusing entry...even though a business has the right to refuse customers. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    Our problem is that people have proven in general they do not want to be bothered by wearing a mask or social distances. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    Not necessarily true. My wife is making cotton masks with coffee filters and according to South Korea these work as well as the n95 masks. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    I started smoking weed in the Air Force in the late 70s, and continued for a few years after I got out. Then started again for medical purposes...edibles only now though. My Drs in Mexico even recommended I have one dose every night after dinner. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    They have not determined if you get immunity from it if you have had it before. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    You still need to decontaminate whatever was delivered and yourself in case the driver or someone who prepared your order was a carrier. Other than that you should be safe at home. Anyone who enters your home should decontaminate too. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

I have read reports that some of the people who survived Covid19, and caught again have died. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    People that are not showing symptoms, but are carriers will make a lot more sick and die. This is not a flu it is a worldwide pandemic. I wonder how many people who feel that it is more important to go out, and not self distance and wear masks would feel that way if they knew someone who was dying from this.

    So you are ok with being a unknown carrier of COVID 19, and not having social distance or masks? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    I agree...to many people disregard the full danger of what is happening and blow it off as a common cold or flu. Too many people refuse to protect themselves and others, and just want to return to a life where they can party, and go out wherever they want. The longer people act like this, the longer the virus spreads and the more people get sick, and die. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    My wife is Korean, and she found the research from what has worked in Korea. She makes her masks double layered, and then you insert the coffee filters between the 2 layers. The masks can be used over and over... just need washing, and filters to be replaced. Nice thing is the coffee filters are real easy to find, and inexpensive too. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
