Floor epoxy in theatre room

August 7, 2007

Last weekend we epoxied the floor in the theatre room to match the shop.  I intend to install hardwood eventually but this cleans the room for now and also seals in moisture to protect the hardwood.  It also has a huge side benefit of forcing us to clean the room and that reduced the dust enormously.

 The contrast between the walls and the floor make it much easier to see the details of the speaker cabinets now.

Next we will stuff the cabinets with fibreglass and reinstall the new speaker baffles.  Then we can wire up the drivers again for (hopefully) the final time and fire it up to see how well the horns work.

The Owens-Corning 703 acoustic panels should be here this week so we will begin applying those to the concrete walls very soon.  The 109″ diagonal acoustically transparent screen from www.seymourAV.com should be arriving this week as well as a new Oppo Digital 981-HD upscaling, multiformat DVD player.  The screen will be installed in the ceiling just in front of the speakers.  The projector (Sharp XV-Z2000 720p) arrived last week, so as soon as I build a ceiling mount, I’ll work on mounting that as well.  I ordered some Canare wire to make component video cables and I’ll probably also run an HDMI cable from the Oppo DVD player to the projector.

Hopefully, the room will really begin to take shape in the next few weeks.

 Stay tuned…       GDS
