Will hopefully with hold the next updates for

3) towers in room

4) acoustic panels

Not in that particular order.

Sorry everyone for the many pictures of trim. Lol. I'd like some leaps and bounds here soon.

Been gone for 6-7 months!  Enjoying my newborn for a while... but got a little progress in while away from the site.  To finish: carpet, acoustic panels, theater chairs, and update the A/V rack equipment.

Test run went great.  The room sounds amazing even with no carpet or acoustic panels yet!  The bass has so much more visceral feel to it versus being upstairs in essentially an open room to the whole house.  Surround sound is clearly defined but not so clear that you can isolate a particular speaker around you.  It's better than I imagined it would be.  And will be even more improved with carpet and acoustic panels later.

 

downside:  at some point during my enjoyment my left front subwoofer developed a nasty 60hz hum. Called Klipsch and they're sending me a new one- but they're on backorder.  Apparently the new style subs have hum problems.

Then think twice about it.

I should rephrase.  The room sounds amazing compared to what I expected it to sound like.  It's much improved on their temporary home upstairs.. but still needs some damping to make it truly euphoric. 

Everyone I've had come over for a "beta test" is blOwn away.
