by Steve Castle You’re treated to an entertaining show the second you enter this theater. About 150 feet of LEDs (light emitting diodes) integrated into the coffered ceiling light up and cycle through several different colors as guests take their seats. “It’s a neat effect, and it gives it such a Wow! factor,” says Mike Fox of systems installation firm Fox Audio Visual in Springfield, Ill. “I chose five to six colors that can be toggled through. For more advanced colors, you can call them up via the remote.” http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ A motion sensor at the front of the room detects visitors from the side door and triggers an LED processor that’s connected to a Control4 home control system. The LED processor turns on combinations of the red, green and blue LEDs to achieve different effects. Fox and his company programmed several preset scenes into the Control4 system, so the homeowners can show off their theater and its colorful ceiling at the touch of a button. http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ The ceiling isn’t the only amazing part of this room. The LED lights ramp down when it’s showtime, and that’s when the audio and video system shines. Fox used seven of BG’s Radia “ribbon” speakers to provide the audio thump. The speakers use flat diaphragms instead of traditional cone drivers, and an electromagnetic force on aluminum conductors evenly distributes a signal over the entire surface of the diaphragms. This eliminates vibrations and results in a smooth sound, especially in the upper frequencies. Read the entire article at Electronic House here.
