  1. Thank you. I really appreciate that. It will be a while longer before I am done done. I have a small workspace, so I did not have enough room for all of the pieces to be finished all at once. Some of the trim on the rear, and decorative side pieces will be added on later. I have to go through the exact same finish process all over again. I think there are something like 11 or 12 coats of various products with curing and sanding in between each. Don't worry the rack will up and running first. I love what you did there. Tubing is great, feet are a nice touch, the dimensions are definitely custom. I know that maple butcherblock is not cheap either. I went through a lengthy process trying to match oak to walnut with the "Flexy" racks I built for my other system. I also needed something custom for integration across the front wall. Here is a pic to my other systems diy racks.
  2. I may be interested. Send me a PM when you get around to selling those.

  5. Well, there was this one project where I successfully accomplished isolating a high frequency laser for a manufacturer. By using a system involving heavy duty spring isolators, and a suspended monolithic slab of concrete weighing 120 tons, the laser was ultimately immune from any vibrations transmitted through the ground above 2Hz. Ultra low frequencies excite the materials around them, causing vibration. This vibration travels longitudinally. How far it travels depends on soil type and strength of the source. Likely your neighbor is hearing this vibration. By isolating the source, you are isolating the vibration, thereby reducing the strength of ultra low frequencies being transmitted to your neighbors foundation. These ultra low frequencies cannot be heard, but you can definitely feel them, and especially you can hear the china in the cabinet rattling. Hope this helps. Good luck Oh, and OMG what a subwoofer stack!😲 What amps are you using?\ I just purchased 2 Monoprice Monolith 12" THX Ultra subwoofers. They are sitting on SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation feet. Basically my room is on top of a concrete slab. Never even plugged them in yet. We will soon find out what my neighbors thoughts are. hehehehe
  6. Google IsoAcoustics Custom Configurable Modular Series Acoustic Isolation Stands
  7. Wanna bet? I on the other hand believe they're the metal inserts that the magnets that are attached to the grill frames bond to.
  8. The neighbors cannot hear the subs sound but can hear the vibrations the sound waves cause. Isolation is your friend. http://www.isoacoustics.com/products/modular-series-model-mol-al/ Welcome to the Forum. Congrats on the excellent theater. Fit and finish looks great. The led's are incredible.
  9. Got a new Weber Spirit E-310 propane gas grill. Up in the top rack, had them pull the pallet down, scan the price. Last years $500 model is showing clearance price $300. Even the store manager did not know that deal existed. If you can find last years model, you can get the same deal. The store I went to had 21 in inventory, so the warehouse is dumping them and sending them out to select locations. Here is a link you can search for one near you- if you are interested. https://brickseek.com/home-depot-inventory-checker/?sku=203597743 Genesis II @ 2x the price even on clearance just wasn't doing it for me. YMMV
  10. Just took the preliminary weight measurements. I estimate the final weight of the rack to be approximately 175 pounds total. I could have added another $200 to the total bill had I choosen THESE these for the sides.If I went this route instead, I would have cut vertical slots along the sides for added ventilation, and some additional aesthetics. That would have brought the material list up to $600. Just using up what I had here instead. Totally understand now why audio racks are as expensive as they are, even though the prices seem insane for what they are. My issue was more about getting exactly what I wanted. I just could not find the size, color, style, shape, materials, casters, etc. that fit what was in my mind. If I was asked to build one of these for someone else, I wouldn't do it for less than $1200. Good luck with your build.
  11. These have rave reviews everywhere. Comments like blown away by the sound from a bookshelf. I know someone with 2 pairs for sale. Walnut too. Only 3 months out of the box. Can be shipped in all original packaging. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/186080-rf7iii-rc64iii-2-sets-rp600m/
  12. Not quite perfectly flat yet. I don't really care if it ever gets that flat. Just want those high grain ridges gone so when I slide a 100LB ampifier across the shelf, I don't drag across some grain possible lifting some finish, or color, or even a scratch. It was the first time for me using the AquaSeal product. A bit of a learning curve. Started on the bottoms of course. I eventually got a good technique down. More tedious than I thought it would be. Worth the effort, but I stopped after 2 coats. There is maybe 100 board feet of material here to finish. I eventually got one coat of General Finishes on everything, then called it a day. https://aquacoat.com/products/clear-grain-filler https://www.woodcraft.com/products/hp-polyurethane-top-coat-gloss-quart
  13. Looks nice. Good job on the rehab. Would you like to share your location? It may help seeing how you are looking for someone local, or at least within 350 miles of...??

    https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/atq/d/mukwonago-klipsch-chorus-ii/6970704060.html I am not posting the 2 basic pics. They will be gone lickety split. Always are around here.
  15. Sharing a post with more pics of the Klipsch rooms at RMAF. https://www.avsforum.com/forum/173-2-channel-audio/3089080-rocky-mountain-audio-fest-2019-pictures-impressions.html#post58522260

  17. Everything seem so much better now that Wisconsin has 3 MVP's in 3 major sports! Other than that, I think I saw a tree with a bit of orange on top. Oh, and the apples orchards are so bountiful and bushels are being filled daily. 👍 for Door County!
  18. Hey folks, @lupp5214 is the real deal. I have been to his house. Kind, courteous, helpful and best of all great gear at even better prices. Everything has a box, because it is all like new. Couple of months out of the box with ultra low hours on this stuff. Really recent purchases on amazing Klipsch speakers. Do not allow distance dissuade you from contacting him. Believe me, if you want to make a deal, this is the place to be. Members if you need some assistance in purchasing and you think I may be some help send me a PM! These items are still available: RF 7iii pair - $1800 RP 600M pair - $300 RP 600M pair - $300 RC 64iii - $800 Integra 2 channel amp $200 Put together a package for an even better deal!
  19. Running into the same problem myself. I have recently been collecting as many titles as I can get my hands on. Physical media is dying "so they say". Some manufactures have stopped making players. I see how Best Buy and certain Walmarts continue to reduce the number of shelves dedicated to physical media. It all just makes me not want to loose out. When they are out of print, they get real hard to find. Right now I am using 2 racks mounted to 1000LB lazy susan bearings. They fit nice into the closet. Unfortunately the same closet I plan to place the new audio rack. Maybe not immediately, but eventually that is the plan.
  20. Glazing is done. Next up is grain filling followed by 2 topcoats.

  22. Sounds good. I never meant to infer that KGI was not a top notch team. I aware of the level of talent there. I didn't know they were involved in the actual set-up in the room itself. I don't know how the ball got handed off in Schaumburg, Illinois at Axpona. No way anyone with one good ear and one eye good eye and basic fundamental knowlege of room accoustics could have missed how lowball it was. Maybe was just a one-off being that it was the first year at the show for Klipsch. Now I have my hopes up that Klipsch cornwall IV and Heresy IV will come along with KGI at Axpona 2020. Thanks.
