dumping camera
Before i started poly





this is what it looked like today before i started



400 grit on block

no pressure just drag it with the grain



Wipe off dust - i use super tight weave cotton or polyester rags, just want something that wont snag the grain or leave fibers behind - microfiber works great for this


Another coat on


Shame the front is gonna be facing the couch, i like how it looks. Not sure why its a lil blotchy, it did get the prestain /shrug.

yea I wish I could afford to spend 16k on just subs but I cant. I know someone who bought 8 of the 24s, when he gets his theater built im gonna drive over there because that's just nuts, not sure if he is IBing or something else.

+ the wall space needed to do 16 is just stupid. even 8 front and back would require a HUGE room

Thats why Id rather have a FH with a couple subs made for 5hz, you may need a room dedicated for it, but at least you arent sacrificing usable theater space for 8 subs (hypothetically) and their enclosure.

is there a FH made for going that low? the Gjallarhorn and orthhorn dont go that low and they are 2 of the biggest, same with the DTS10

It is in no way practical, but its possible. Youd be making your own design with hornresp with a driver made with horns in mind. Its easier to make a bunch of sealed or ported subs but thats too easy :)

I don't remember where I bought it.. it might have been at ABC Warehouse like 10 years ago. I did some searching on the internet and can't find it. It has no markings so I can't identify a brand name. But, the thing feels like it is made out of iron, because empty it weighs about 50lb.

Anyhow, I moved into a new house and started fresh.. no theater room yet, but I have the server room all ready to go for when I do.

File Server:
Intel i5 2500k Processor
Gigabyte Z77X-D3H Motherboard
8GB Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600
90GB Corsair ForceGT SSD [OS Drive]
20TB storage (FlexRAID with 2-drive redundancy, all WD Green 1TB/2TB)
Ceton InfiniTV 4
Rocketfish Case (modded to hold 20 hard drives)
Highpoint DC-7280 Datacenter HBA
Sans Digital TowerRAID 8-bay eSATA Enclosure
Zalman 850w Heatpipe Cooled PSU
WHS 2011
1459 Blu-ray 1080p encodes, 71 Full TV Series 720p encodes, ~40,000 MP3's.



HTPC's:
3 of each...
MSI P67A-G43 Motherboard
Intel i3 2100 Processor
PNY 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Corsair Force 3 60GB SSD
Galaxy GTS 450 Graphics Card
NMediaPC Pro-LCD 5.25'' Screen
Corsair CX430 Power Supply
Rosewill R4000 4U Rackmount Case
Monoprice HDMI to Ethernet Converters to the TV's
Monoprice USB to Ethernet to the IR Receivers mounted under the TV's (power up/down of the PC and control WMC)
Recordings all get archived to the WHS via the home server storage plug-in, so the 60GB SSD's are sufficient)
All HTPC's run Win7 x64 with MediaBrowser









The rack:
3x HTPC's (see above)
ProAudioVideo 22u / 1000mm Deep Rack
Belkin PF60 Power Center
Zyxel 24port Gigabit Switch
Asus RT-N16 running DD-WRT (Linux Kernel 3.10.2)
Motorola SB6121
Everything is on a CyberPower 1500VA UPS (about 25mins in a power outage, with PC shutdown scripts via USB)







And the main TV room with a 60'' LG 3D Plasma





The next plans are for the cigar room I'm building downstairs to have the 2nd HTPC hooked up to provide content there, and the 3rd in the upstairs living room. The theater will be a work in progress and should be done in a few years. I have all the equipment already from the old house.. I just need to rebuild it all with a themed layout. I pretty much have the plans already.
