    So why did you set the studs at 12" OC? Is it for acoustic reasons? structure? I can't see any structural reason for it. If it's part of the acoustical treatment, please educate.
    Thanks.

    Hey Bill,
    The thinking is that stiff walls, or really stiff surfaces in general are less apt to be a potential bass absorber. For example, it's possible for a wall with Resilient Channel to act as a bass absorber. The slightly flexible wall can act as a diaphram. I say CAN.
    So I was contemplating that the inner walls, because they're not attached to the original joists above, would be inherently "softer". The 12" on center construction was a precaution. I figured the cost difference wans't significant enough to worry about it, and the insulation was available in 12" widths.

    Ted,
    Looks great! Please continue to post pictures so we can observe the project.
    In the near future I'd like to build a dedicated HT room and would be most curious to hear how you acquired the knowledge of how to prepare a room for a HT (i.e. using floating joists, building the radius & stage, etc.). Did you acquire all of this information from experience, a book, HT designers, hometheaterforum, etc.?

    Dennis Erskine for the design and acoustic background. He's THE man. The rest is just trial and error. I networked a lot and asked silly question two and three times.

    Looking good. I like the isolation touches such as the spot light boxes. Nice attention to detail.
    What exactly is "play sand"?
