I forgot to mention , i ran across this software

which will be good to keep the electric bill down a bit hopefully.

I am interested to see how you integrate everything and what software you end up using.

So I *FINALLY* got around to ordering my custom fabric for my acoustical panels. I looked back and I started with some of the first rough designs of things back in June... Took long enough.

I only had time to put the fabric on one panel tonight as we are heading out of town early in the morning, but here are some pictures.

Rear wall's panel (25.5" tall x 48.25" wide x 5.5" deep) using 4" thick OC703 plus a 1.5" air gap behind it.



And with the fabric...



The side panels will mimic the metal artwork that will eventually go in the wet bar area right outside the theater.

Now you just need to poke LEDs fiber optic lights through the back of the panel and the fabric so that it will sparkle like actual stars. smile

I actually thought about that, but I don't have a good way to get power to it without tearing into the extra thick drywall. I don't think that I would need to poke through the fabric though. I would just have to line up the fiber optics with the actual printed stars and they would be subtle with the lights on and stand out with the lights off.

For now I have my fiber optic ceiling panel...

Me too. Maybe tomorrow as we are out of town today. Of course I could do one set of three, hang them on the left wall, take a picture, then hang them on the right wall and take another and nobody online would know any better. LOL

Fabric is on the panels, and they are hung. I did another quick video of the room. 1 minute 53 seconds

My wife likes the panels now where she hated that they were even there before, so it is a win-win... The room looks better and sounds better and everyone is happy.

The theater is now officially named (again). V4.0 of the 'Starlight Theatre'

Keep in mind that the side panels were done to mimic the metal artwork that will be behind the wetbar that will be built outside the theater. It looks like this:



Here is the video: Starlight Theatre

Great work, Nick. Again, my theater will never even approach yours.
