All I know is there is no way I can treat above the loft area. It is very spacious, but I am sure in a better treated room...they would really come alive.Love the setup!! I wonder how those high ceilings play into a sense of spaciousness in that room??
If you are ever in the area...let me know.I'd love to hear what it sounds like. I'm imagining it has a natural height to it.
Thanks, I am hoping my next mod to the system makes a nice improvement. I have some of the parts on the way and my friend will be able to start after the first of the year cutting up parts on a saw and CNC.Looks great!!! I'll bet those horns, along with the rest of your kit, sound wonderful...
I wonder what an IR of your room and kit would sound like in my room with my kit... Convolution reverb anyone?
Thank you...we enjoy it very much too.The room really came together nicely. A wonderful place to listen to music or watch a movie. Very nice work!
Mesquite is a high end wood in Mexico and is very heavy. I will check Maple out along with buying a butcher block countertop and cutting it up.I like Mesquite and Red Oak bark 50/50 for BBQ Quail and Tri-Tip... And I am not so sure Mesquite is a "tone wood"... I use Maple, which is the hardest of the "tone woods"... I would just set a block of thick "tone wood" on the steel shelf using some thick felt to isolate the block from the shelf...
You always amaze me with the things you build so I will patiently wait to see what you come up with...
I received my 4 shelf supports today from the welder and I started working on rounding the corners off. Next I am going to have some wood turned (40 pieces) all to 12" long 1 1/2", and once those are done i will finish rounding the corners . Once the corners are done I would like to have the 4 shelf supports painted professionally with Automotive paint. I am also thinking of getting some black stick on sound absorption (something like Dynamat or just felt) to attach to the shelves Once I get that far i will get the shelves made and then I will get the cabinet made to enclose the rack... I want to get slotted sides with grill cloth on the inside and have the sides front and back removeable. each shelf will hold 3 components. I have not decided yet if I want all 4 shelves or just 3 for now.

Well about the only thing I am doing is designing the rack, and assembling...other than grinding the corners so they are the same distance or recessed under the wood uprights. I am thinking either mesquite or Purple heart for the uprights.. I need to check on the prices before I decide. The exterior I want to be similar to this, but the sides and front and rear panels will be all removable for moving.I can’t wait to see this unsightly piece of metal turned into a beautiful shelf. You’ve got skills, sir.

I had looked at various ones online, but i wanted it a bit different...hence a metal rack with wooden uprights, and wooden shelves inside of a slatted cabinet. I am also thinking of using this with a UST projector. It is all going to depend on how tall I make this cabinet. If I make it 3' tall it ight work, but if I make it 4' tall...I doubt it.Nice work so far... Have you seen these? https://www.salamanderdesigns.com/chameleon-collection/zurich/
I almost got one of these and then I realized my current AV rack would work fine with my UST PJ... LOL... If I get any more gear I will have to get one...
