Nice Mike. How does it sound ?
Sound quality is fine. Does not go quite as low as the 8340's, but does not need to. Just wanted them to be able to get to 80hz. Plenty of impact and SPL. I need to do a little more playing around with the, but have been working on other changes as well. :)

The other changes. Have added a DBX RackDrive PA2 for EQ of my right and left mains that are 3-way active. I like how this device works, much better than the MiniDSP 10x10HD. Also XLR are much easier to work with and more reliable than Phoenix connections

With the 10x10HD, to make any change, I had to go to the equipment room and connect computer by USB to the 10x10HD. With the DBX PA2, it is on my network and can make adjustment anywhere in my house. The DBX PA2 also has RTA, so I picked up a 75' XLR cable to run to my room and connect up the measurement mic. Makes it very easy to see the effect of crossover changes and filters. Picked up a second DBX PA2 for my center channel and my get a third for my subs.

My last two Volt-10's arrive today. These are going to be used for rear surrounds, to take my system to 7.1.4. I already have installed another Crown amp in my rack to power these speakers. Still waiting on my new screen. Will take pictures, once these are built and installed.

Also since I have made so many changes, I have updated the first post.

Nice Mike!  8)  I may have missed it but, what screen are you going with?  I'm guessing the V7 material?

Very nice.  I remember seeing the Neo material a few years ago at Axpona before it was released. It was showing on a 12ft wide screen with the JVC RS4500.  Great picture! 8)

If you liked the Neo, you would definitely like the V6 and V7.

Yesterday afternoon my last two Volt-10 kits for rear surrounds were delivered. Finished them up a few minutes ago and mounted them. Still have to run the speaker wire from mechanical room below. I have a small angle iron and flat bar steel fastened to the front of my sound panels, that are behind the curtains. Speakers sit on the angle and magnets hold the speaker at the top to the flat bar and at the bottom to the angle iron. This way I am free to move the speakers closer together or farther apart. Rear surrounds are about 3' away from the person sitting in front of the speakers, so not as close as it looks in the pictures. :)

Ran the wiring in the wall down to the rack in the mechanical room and have everything up and running. :)

Found out today what the delay is on my new screen. Parts problem. Seymour/Screen Excellence is out of the RQ control cards for the Trim masking system and due to Covid 19, it is taking a lot longer than normal to get more. They are hoping to have new cards by middle of August. I ordered this screen in March. Thought I would get it in June, due to them having to build seven others before mine. Glad I was not needing this screen for a new room without any screen. :)

Bummer! :o  Good to know you still have a screen to use though. :)

If I didn't I would have already pulled out my 106" manual pull down High Power screen. It would fit between my left and right speaker. Would have to turn off the center and run phantom. Probably would have to turn off the two 18" subs in the baffle wall also. But at least I would have a picture. :) 

I have been talking to my daughter, she just got married and bought a house. I have enough extra stuff laying around to give them an HT. Have sitting around, a couple projectors, two screens, six identical speakers, a couple AVR's and several subwoofers and several amps. Would need to build a box for a subwoofer. But they would not have to buy anything.

I added a UPS in the theater room. Mainly for the projector, but I did place the Harmony hub on the UPS also. I plugged the seats into the surge side of the UPS. I was concerned if the unit would make much if any noise, but it is pretty much silent. With the display turned off, you don't even know it is there.

Hi Mike,

Remember coming to my home in Brentwood, TN with Kris Deering about this time last year, late August? I have an RS3000 and Panamorph DCR lens also.

I'm interested in your "Custom unistrut mounting system for projector and A-lens".

Photos? Source? How could I get one?

Thanks,

Chis Cargen
