Yeah 5.1, I need to find an Excite x24 center. I have some Monitor Audio GRFX rears for now. I think what I'll do eventually is get the new x14 and move the x12 to the rear. I haven't decided what sub to do yet.

Nice buildup, love the cabinets and flooring! You have a nice collection of detailing products too!

I guess you really love tie wraps

I would order a sample tile from each to help you make your flooring decision. The best choice I made was putting the Rubbertrax rows in front of the work bench. It makes standing at the bench much more comfortable.
Thank you for the feedback on PSI. BLack Wow is a bit greasy but a little buff with a clean microfiber and it's good to go. I'll have to give Wolf's Trim Coat a try. You can pick it up at Autogeek. http://www.autogeek.net/wolfs-trim-coat.

I've got my samples of RD so just need to order the Swisstrax. I may just do the mat they offer. I like the idea of the Rubbertrax!

Sweet audio set up too!

Autogeek and Detailer's Domain stopped importing Wolf's. I need to give Phil a call to see if he can get me some.

I love, love the Rubbertrax. It is a subtle difference, but you can definitely feel it when standing on it for a few minutes.

I should have known you already checked with Autogeek and Detailers Domain. LOL. Phil may be a good shot. Ever try Ultima Tire and Trim Guard?

Maybe I'll see you at a Cars and Coffee or PSI. I'd love to check out the GT3!

Sorry for being off topic and once again congrats on your garage! Well played!

Coming on nicely, Clean and clutter free, looks ideal.
If it was my place the colour of the vice and detailing shelves would be wispering to me constantly i would need to change them to black.

Looking nice. I like that vise as I have the same version in a Wilton.

Default Subwoofer

I just bought one of the bad boys for the garage to pair with the DynAudio x12s. I may decide to just leave it as a two channel set-up.

E-Sub e112-Gloss

Default Wiring Home Theater

This doesn't look like much, but it took the better part of my weekend. I ordered some 12 AWG speaker wire and decided to test out an HDMI switcher rather than buying a new pre-amp for my family room. I've spent enough money lately, so I'm going to hold-off and wait for more Dolby Atmos updates. The RXV-800 will hold me over for now.





Drilled 1/2 hole in the side of the wide cabinets to route the wire.











In order to fit the old-school DVI cable and power cords, I needed to hole saw some rather large holes in the cabinets. I'll get something to cap and finish the holes soon.



The disadvantage of a block wall is that you can't hide the wires.



Being in home theater sales in a previous life has it's advantages. This is one of the few disorganized areas of my life. I had to stop myself from reorganizing this box.



I had to coil up about 25 feet of extra wire for the right speaker to match the length of the left.





Took the Klipsch down.





My temporary solution until I figure out what I want to do to power the Dynaudio.





My Pioneer Elite is from back in the days when flat panels needed a separate box to house the guts of the TV. This thing is still too good to get rid of.



Miss Baby helping out



I had an old HTS5000 Monster Clean Power laying around in the attic.



Filled the holes and painted the area behind the speaker brackets.



Been without sound and picture for weeks. All is right in the world.





JL Subwoofer is going under the window in the back right.







Super Bowl time!



I put the Klipsch where the X12s are going.























Speakers will be here this week. Next, I need to add two more lights, maybe under cabinet lights, and aluminum prints for the walls. I'm thinking I may just do 2.1 rather than 5.1. Mainly because I'm not sure that I want to put the center channel on the counter top and Dyn doesn't make an on-wall version. We'll see.

I am probably off on my eyeball measurement but would a 47.25" top panel for a tall storage cabinet be long enough to use as a bridge over the TV? Mounted upside down with some plywood inside would give you a matching platform for the center channel speaker. If that isn't long enough, maybe Saber Cabinets would be willing to custom make the right length silver shelf for you. If all else fails they should be willing to provide matching paint and a sheet metal shop can make the shelf for you. I put a 7.1 system in my garage years ago and would really hate to go back to a 2.1 system.

That's not a bad idea Bob. I may reach out to Dean at Saber to see if he has the capability to manufacture something for me. I'm trying to take my time, although I tend to get impatient quickly. I'll probably move the X12 to the rear and get the new X16 to match the new x24 center. I'm excited about the JL Audio sub. Someday I want to get the massive Gotham sub they make.

Default JL Audio E112 Install

I promise, I'm done spending money. I get my front book shelf speakers tomorrow. The sub came today. I still have some work to do to get the wiring hidden. I trimmed the plastic tiles to make a channel, but the power cable needs to straighten out.





















I got a little side tracked when UPS showed up with some detailing supplies.



It was about time to replace the finest sprayers on my Griot's bottles.



My favorite $5 tire brushes.



I need to test out some Alcantara care options.









I got to use my vise!

Default DynAudio Excite x12

I got my speakers today. I only had about 5 minutes to listen to them, but oh my how I love Dyn drivers. They are so smooth. To my ear, soft dome tweeters are the best! I really like how the fit on the countertop. Don't let their size fool you.

























I think this photo sums up me up: organized, car lover that loves to detail, tinkerer, and enjoys quality electronics.

Looks good.
I dont know if I would leave that woofer on the floor there, but maybe your garage stays cleaner than mine.
Maybe shelf to get if off the floor a little?
