    I used 1" pipe insulation to cover the bungee cords.

    Found some missing bass last night.
    Return To Forever-Romantic Warrior
    In the first song "Medieval Overture" towards the end there is a organ note that drops down very low. In this room it has always been weak in the listening position. I could walk up to the front wall and it would be stronger.
    With the addition of only two bass traps the bass is much stronger in the listening position.
    I like it! :)

    I recovered the two first reflection panels with black.

    I've got a few yards of burlap purchased from ATS if anyone wants to pay shipping. Otherwise no cost to you. Came rolled up so no creases. I'll just need to figure out how to ship it. It's 56" high and yards long. I bought mostly the Natural but also some yards of Ivory.

    My DIY builds in the natural.

    I also used this stuff on the back boards. It's a very interesting "paint".

    Here are some I built for LSAF. Stands are made with black pipe and base filled with lead shot.

    I added clouds this weekend.
    Really helped focus the image.
    It just keeps getting better and better. :)

    More info on the clouds.

    I used hardware from HD. Dipped the hooks in black Rustoleum. The chain came black. The plastic toggles are great because they do not fall apart when the screw is removed (in this case the screw is a 10-24 J-hook).
    I mounted the frames before attaching fabric and fiberglass.

    With the addition of the clouds the image feels more solid. I am noticing things like two voices where before I thought it was one voice. The same with instruments. Also there is better depth and separation between voices and instruments.

    I guess now that I don't have as many sound waves bouncing around the room I can hear what is actually coming out the the speakers.

    How on Earth did you do that??? Drywall lift? I honestly can't figure out how you added the insulation and fabric once the frames were on the ceiling. I had a hard enough time doing it on the floor.

    Nevertheless great job! A+

    Bad description on my part.
    I pre-installed the frames without fiberglass and fabric.
    I then took them down finished them and reinstalled. B)

    Gotcha! Makes much more sense now. I seriously thought you were some sort of spider mutant with eight appendages to be able to do that, even with a drywall lift. Great job.

    I added two more 4" bass traps to the upper left hand side of the room.

    ciy6bgyhvwza.jpg

    They attenuated the top end too much so I ran a quick test by covering them with plastic bags to kill the top end absorption.

    6scheoz2e2h5.jpg

    This worked like a charm so I took them down, disassembled them and covered the outside fiberglass surface with FRK.

    Reassembled, rehung and everything is good now.

    I also built removable panel/screens for the hot water heater and water softener to hide the mess.

    Brother, your 'garage rig' is better than most people's main rig. Excellent job there. I've enjoyed following your progression.
