Unboxing 4 pieces gray version, this display units that we got, looks like new !! Just slightly dusty, wipe it off , but for the price we got on the demo sets, absolutely worth it! By the way, all demo sets whacked by few of us, no more left ...

If there is any demo sets, go for it ! Very good value indeed





This one is actually audiophile stuff, very good for music! I think music lovers will enjoy what this SMT wings bring to the table...

I’m using mainly for HT, but will benefit as well from music...

Ceiling mostly done, still some minor work, today focus mainly on mounting this heavy panels onto the wall, damn heavy

Using the brackets like this to flush mount

The one on TOP goes behind the panel, the one at the bottom onto the wall. Brackets from previous acoustic panels, re use it to flush mount on wall

Almost done, atmos 6 overheads on ceiling...

Front height will be wired in parallel with TOP front ceiling height, which is mounted 150cm in front of MLP. Front height will be all the way in front , tilted and angling towards MLP.  The angle of reflection from the tilt, is where I’ll place the BAD panels...

TOP centre mounted 35cm behind MLP , TOP back all the way to the back....

Front and back will be discrete channels, whilst the TOP center will be a matrixed using lyngdorf mp50, mp50 will post process the signal from back and front to channel to TOP... let’s see how that turns out...

First of SMT up!

Diffusion-Absorption-Diffusion

This is placed exactly behind MLP , the seaton sits just under, 65 cm from ground. Moving another seaton here maybe co locate it...

Here where some of the panels went...above the surrounds

 



I have the TOP center tweeter angled towards the height mounted SMTs at the surrounds, hoping for a wider sound stage... let’s see how it goes...

The TOP back atmos is angled towards The back of MLP



The TOP front is angled sideways as well

Nice to have Atmos speakers that you can angle left right front back.. versatile...



The above is dihedral mount, this method of mounting will help with bass trap, you can see there is an air GAP to trap longer wavelengths...



This acoustic door is a velocity trap door with mass loaded vinyl, DAMN Effective! Immediately after closing the door, the whole room goes silent, nice... exactly what I want...



More or less done after cleaning up etc.... final front view looks

Still have 2x60cm SMT wings to flank the centre channel... will probably do it later when the Lyngdorf MP50 arrives...still gotta clear and tidy all the messy cables and reposition the speakers for optimum performance ...

NO PAIN NO GAIN.....

This morning I woke up.... walked out to the living room.... wow!! Super silent... I can only hear the wall clock clicking sound, tick tock tick tock ... straight away I can “feel” the room acoustics... nice man ! Can’t wait to pop in some demo scenes

Looks like gotta swap out the wall clock for a digital clock....

Can already “feel” the reverb greatly reduced when I exhale my breath, feels tight and silent , living room feels like studio room now... I presume should be down by at least 10db...

Will measure the room noise floor again when I get the chance... heading for some KEC workshop this weekend... busy busy busy...

The NEW reference clip to be used now will be this movie called “ A Quite Place”

Some creature horror movie, soundtrack is superb, fantastic dynamic range...

Thanks for the heads up, will look around for suitable one. I actually like the analogue ones, want my kids to learn how to look at the time, most likely will move this clock into the room and get one without sound...

The other stuff I got also generates noise, I bought this 5 Bay drive for harddisk for movies, but there is a fan inside that is also generating noise...  wrong move buying this...
