I also got some work done today at the home cinema. Got up a z-channel and laid all traction pipes for electricity and fiber that are going to the technical room. Mounting traction pipe and z-channel. →
Puzzled to a few more cuts and drawings of the home theater today. Decent pastime at the beginning of the Easter holidays. As I said, I will collect all documentation on a page here on the blog when it has been planned and drawn. More drawings of the home theater. →
Made a simple page on Facebook where it is automatically updated when new things are posted on the blog. If you want an update straight to Facebook, just add this page. Should get updated a bit there so it does not look so empty. But then, if you want to follow what is being done in the home theater, just add it.
Today, the Z-channels finally arrived, which will provide sound attenuation in and out of the air. Had imagined something a little more powerful things, so quite flimsy and messy I think. The Z-channels have arrived. →
Have tampered a bit with making a rendering in Sketchup. That is, a photorealistic image made from a 3D drawing of the home cinema. Tried a bit with Vray which is a plugin to create such images in Sketchup. Image created in Sketchup →
Sound ceiling is the next step in my home theater. Have calculated that 48 × 98 holds for 2 layers of plaster on the light opening I have. According to a table I found at byggforsk, I am completely on the border with a 4m light opening. But now I will not load the ceiling with anything more than a projector in addition to the plasterboard. Bet it holds plenty. Have not been able to do much this weekend due to family visits, but took me a little construction session tonight.
Sound ceiling of 2 × 4 and then there will be 2 layers of plaster.
Then I started preparing for the isolation of home theater. Must bend the string behind the postwork to keep the insulation in place and prevent it from seeping into the outer walls. For this, I chose to use a regular red masonry cord that can be bought at most building material chains. Bought a reel of 150m which of course was exactly 1m too short.
Put the reel in on a large nail so that you could pull off the string without having to hold it.
Trying to think of the best way to get ventilation in the home theater without compromising the noise reduction in the room. Has a horizontal guide into the room from the balanced ventilation in the house. Had intended to put extra sound traps on this so that the sound from the home theater is not carried out to other rooms in the house via the ventilation system. Ventilation in the home cinema. →
