RE: Lounge tart up.....PT-1

I allways enjoy looking at others DIY projects as personally I think anyone could take the pro install route but IMHO the results are far more satisfying when you've put your own blood,sweat and tears into it. Can't wait to see the finished results :cheers:

My DIY project is HERE  Dance 4

Thanks D.J.KRIME

More pictures coming weekend, very nice set up you have there, I agree it is very satifiying doing your own install/set-up and it can be done reasonably cheap if you shop around, I only have limited time when I can carry out the work, but the worst bit is done now.

Anyway roll on weekend, will update then. Dirol

RE: Lounge tart up.....PT-1

As you can see the back wall has now been covered with Sound sheild plaster board, all timber has also been lined with the sound sheild, speaker boxes now installed, all timbers were drilled screwed and fixed with instant grab adhesive for extra strength and also to fill any foids.

Will have some more pictures soon as last ones did not come out so having to take them again, any questions fire away.

Next step is constructing centre speaker box, insulation and installing speaker cable conduits. Back soon :wave:

Dirol No problems with images either Dance 4

RE: Lounge tart up.....PT-1

No experience with in walls so your timber frames are somewhat puzzling. Guess they are giving a false wall into which the speakers are 'sunk'. I guess too that u have researched the best installation techniques to avoid the need for additional bass traps and acoustic treatments. Would haveloved a project like this and thank u for sharing your build.

RE: Lounge tart up.....PT-1

Hello all

Hope all is well this lousy weekend, I have been trying to catch up with work on the install and not long finished today so I thought I would put some more pickys up, I am getting there now so not to long to go, the actual back wall was going going to be plastered but it came out well when puting it up there were only four joints to fill so I preped it myself and it came out Ok so saved some money there, the ceiling will be plastered as thats a bit more complicated, will fit speakers in over the weekend, so will post more pictures then, in the mean time here is the latest ones.

Nice to se the evolution, and even nicer to know that you are building with your own hands!
