My vision is becoming a reality. 


At about 25% power and still 2 subwoofers short, the dishes in the kitchen above are rattling in the cabinets and the bottles in the minifridge 2 levels up are bouncing around, and that is despite major efforts at soundproofing.  21,000 watts just can't be contained...
For reference, this pic is 16' wide and 9' tall.  The subwoofer enclosures are 5'6" tall and 25.5" wide.

Here's a couple from a couple months back. 



The top of the right rack is for whole house audio, the rest is theater.  Emotiva didn't come out with their Atmos upgrade on that XMC-1 pre/pro yet (been saying next quarter for 2 years now) so I picked up a Marantz AV7703 as a temporary processor until the new Emotiva upgrade is out.  Amps are Emotiva XPA-3 for mains, and two XPA-5's for surround and Atmos speakers.  Subs are powered by Behringer inuke6000dsp's, 6kw each (about 3k RMS measured in reality).  Each amp has a dedicated 20a circuit, with 220v for the Emotiva amps and 110v for the Behringer amps (they don't make a 220v version here in the states).  Overkill on the electrical power, but I wanted enough for any future expansion before I started putting drywall up.  I also have dedicated 20a 110v circuits for the network, and for the pre/pro and accessories.  NVidia ShieldTV handles most of the sources for the system as it does Plex, Netflix, Amazon, and PSVue.  All my blurays are ripped without compression but I still have a UHD bluray player that will go in the rack.  There's also a 24v 350w power supply on the wall behind that rack for the LED lighting in the coffered ceiling in the theater.  It is powered off a light switch in the theater room.  Eventually I will get all my home automation stuff loaded up and set up as well.

The left rack is mostly network.  Gigabit internet coming in via fiber optic, about 75 cat5e and cat6a runs terminating at the patch panels, a 24 port PoE switch, a regular 16 port switch, and a bunch of Ubiquiti enterprise network gear (USG, cloud key, and 3 hardwired wifi AP's).  I put 7 cameras around the outside of the house and it all terminates here. Also in there is a Plex server, about 22tb of external storage, and 2 battery backups, one for the network and one that powers the projector in the theater.

Oh andI cant see where your missing the 2 subs either ::)
2 more going in the back of the room.  Short and squatty but the same internal volume, same 18" drivers, and same power to them as the others.  Also not pictured is the 4 Atmos speakers and 4 surround speakers, each are DIYSG Volt 10lx's, 10" midbass drivers with coaxially mounted internal waveguides and compression drivers for the highs.  All the speakers were built in my shop, with only the drivers and SEOS waveguides purchased (all DIYSoundGroup kits).  Subs are Dayton UM18-22's from Parts Express, and each one takes about 2.5 sheets of 3/4" MDF and weigh close to 300 lbs each. 

Aside from hiring out the mudding and taping, I have done 100% of this myself, from electrical and HVAC, to low volt wiring, to framing and drywall (2 layers of 5/8" drywall with green glue in between, mounted on hat channel and clips for sound proofing), riser and stage construction, all columns and trim work, paint, speaker building, acoustic design and treatments, etc.  It has been my life every evening and every weekend since Christmas and I am about 700 hours into it with almost 100 hours of work left.  I watched the first movie in there tonight, and although we were sitting on lawn chairs, I was pretty chuffed.  I will post some pics when done in a few weeks, the room is looking really good but I still have 80 cloth panels to build and a few other details, like hanging the 200lb door and finishing the air circulation system for the projector housing.

I would venture to guess few people would understand what it is your actually talking about, the size and weight of those speakers would be example. heavy as sin, almost to the point of WTH? but with that much power it can actually go though your body and the weight is cause and effect of physics, In fact heres a link to 432hz for those that might be curious to the effect of harmonics, (But be warned it is totally off topic from a BYOAC chuff ::)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wZRVb2fkXw ....  Impressive build man, sooooo very cool. 8)

Theyíre dark because I turn off the lights, just like an arcade. Duh.

You have a standing invitation. Stop kicking the tire and commit!

Got my copy of Apocalypse Culture II.  As I previously thought, someone has already uploaded the entire text of the Roy Shildt article to the internet, but it's missing the photos.  I've saved you $15 and attached one of the highlights.

Jenn has always had a strange attraction to Stunt cycle,.... Never did ever really play it much however, cause the thing would suck up quarters just as fast as you could feed it, and Mom would only usually give me $5.00, which had to last like all night (including all the other things a young girl needs  ::)) **fun fact, soda pop was only .35** pinball was usually the go to for stretching quarters, .... Just kinda curious if you can actually make it work like one would think it should?

Thatís my Bronze Age section. A sit down cocktail pin from the 70s, Atari Video Pinball, and Stunt Cycle. Next to the newest game in my collection, which came out in 1999.

Stunt Cycle is fun. My record is 27 busses.

Let the chuff continue. A friend of mine gave me a little present today. It needs a little cleaning, but he told me it is in good working order. A 1952 Craftsman Jointer.

A 1952 Craftsman Jointer.

Love me some old tools.  You can't kill them.  I borrowed my old mans router and a thick plastic piece came flying out from the inside when I was using it.  Thought I killed it.  It has been going strong with regular use for 5 years ever since.  Todays tools are nice and light but seem to die quickly.  The old girl is pictured below during my Nintendo cab build.

The guy who gave it to me has a whole shop full of old tools that he uses everyday. His band saw is huge and it is older than the jointer. Next time I am over there I will take some tool porn pics for Jennifer.

**SMOOCH ::)).... Oh how I miss my vintage industrial equipment, I never should have downsized, the weight and quality of old cast iron just cant be duplicated in the big box store. The milling machine in particular hit me the hardest still even today, late in the nights Jennifer walks by the empty spot and misses her old friend, And thinks of all the fun things we did together..... My jointer however was downsized to a Rockwell 4",that has some sentimental attachment, and is so tiny and cute its really hard not to love it, although the rebuild took 6mos. and with the custom stand build was a bit spendy (more so than just buying a new Jet 6" long bed) But Jenn would do still do that again today, given it can now shave wood as thin as paper. and don't really need a big one anymore.

New pick up... this was on my Grail list of cabs. Check the restoration thread for more info! Will need some advice.
