I'm sitting here trying to figure out if that's from Brazil or Star Trek Insurrection, when I realize that the same response works for both:

That was a weird movie.

Well its been a few weeks since I made any progress on the HT and this weekend is no different. Windows, trim and dump runs have been filling my spare time.

This weekend I was able to break away to make something cool for the listening room though. A mini project. Acoustic Panels v2.0!

These would have to be a little more attractive (main floor demands more "prettyness" apparently grin) than the last iteration seen here: http://www.axiomaudio.com/boards/ubbthreads.php/topics/386199/Treat+yo-self.++Room+treatment.html

They now belong to Mojo somewhere in Calgary. Hello Mojo if you're out there.

The new panels are constructed out of a 1/2" MDF frame and surrounded by Foam crown moulding. I found a local weaver at the farmers market to custom make wool fabric panels for them to match an existing rope wall hanging behind the listening position. Screening in the fiberglass batt insulation(owens corning 3 5/8" quiet zone) is greyish sheer fabric. They look great and most importantly were cost effective. Treatments can get silly expensive quick, so DIY all the way! smile Total project cost for this was just under 200$- the bulk of that being paying for custom woven fabric panels.

Here are the new panels.



The reason I added them to this thread is this will be the basic layout for the panels in the HT room. Fabric and trim paint will change. They were just too easy and cheap to make. Perfect! The plan will be modified to be longer and house an octagon extention ring for panel mounted wall sconces.

As soon as they were hung straddling either side of a 3 panel patio door we noticed the room was less echoey. These are not going to be used for FRP but strickly for slap echo in the room. So far so good.

Gotta love the graininess in a Ipad photo.
