When I installed my Unistrut rail system for mounting my projector and A-lens, I ran the pieces long on the ceiling with the intention of adding sound panels for the reflection point on the ceiling. I came up with a way to secure the ceiling panels to the nistrut that is simple and cheap to do. I cut small wooden blocks that can slide into the unistrut and painted them black. I will screw the sound panels to the wood blocks. Cheap, simple solution. I have made the blocks and painted them. Hopefully I find time to install this weekend. :)

Pictures of the two panels I finally added on the ceiling. The panel has 2" of mineral wool and 3" gap between mineral wool and the ceiling. Panels are 3" deep and 25.5" x 49.5".

Added a couple amps to my system. Replacing some old amps. Added another Crown Drivecore XLS1002. Have a total of 8 of them. Five of these power my front three 3-way DIY active LCR's. The other 3 are powering surrounds and atmos speakers. I replaced another amp with a Behringer NX6000D. The NX6000D is now powering my 8.0CF sealed 18" RE XXX. I also added an AC Infinity Aircom T8. The Aircom T8 is a nifty little device that offers Programed or smart cooling for AV equipment. New product line we started carrying.

The Aircom T8 looks like a great cooling solution. Pretty quiet ?

It is metal. You can equipment on top of it, but only 30 pounds. Nice looking unit. What I like about it is the rack space it saves me and the clean look. I used to keep four rack spaces above my prepro, for good cooling. Now I only use one rack space.

Technically this post is not about my dedicated room, but I am slowly updating my family room setup to 4K and decided to also add atmos speakers. Family room has a 7.2 sound system using an Onkyo RZ1100 AVR and RBH SI-760 and RBH 661-SE speakers. Today I ordered four RBH SI-615 speakers for atmos.

Very nice! let me know how you like those atmos speakers once you have them up and running. I have been looking at those, the rsl ceiling speakers, and the beale street audio ceiling speakers. What are you using for a display in living room?

I have a small 55" 4K TV and a 127" diagonal electric Stewart FireHawk screen. Currently the projector is a JVC RS57, but will move my RS640 into this room, when I get the RS3000. The speakers are arriving tomorrow, but probably will not get to start on this project until the following weekend.

Finished the install of the atmos speakers in the family room setup. The Onkyo RZ1100 has 9 channels built in, so needed to add two channels for the 7.1.4 system. I have had an old Kenwood KM-X1 amp sitting around unused for many years. Finally put it to work. Using two channels for the rear surrounds. 130 watts per channel with two channels driven at 8 ohm, so plenty of power for rear surrounds.

Sounds good. Really expands the sound field. I really liked atmos in my dedicated room, so I knew that I would like it in my media room.

Mike, how tall is the ceiling in that room ?and is it same height ceiling as in your dedicated theater room? I was just wondering if it made big difference on how tall the ceiling was and effect of atmos speakers whether the taller ceiling was better/worse or same for expanding the sound field and the atmos effects how they compare.
I like those windows in your familyroom, you must have a pretty bright room during the daytime .
