Recessed Acoustic Motorised Tensioned Screen!

Hi @raff,


The Tryptix is a discontinued speaker, however 3 x Sonix would work very well here (they have the same MTM as the Tryptix and Symmetrix).

 

I think you'd find they'd suit the application well.

Cheers,


Michael

Thanks Micheal,

 

I already have the Tryptix from a previous set up and keen to use them again? Would they still be suitable to lay horizontal as sketched? 

 

Any benefit in running 3x Sonix over the Trytix in cabinet? I could use 2 of the Tryptix as rear surrounds?

Oh if that's the case I'd absolutely use them.

The Sonix is very similar, just in a black timber cabinet with slightly different dimensions. If the Tryptix suited better as surrounds (easily wall mountable and gloss enclosure) then you could certainly pair them with Sonix at the front.

Great, thank you.

Very neat, l like it. How did the speakers work being below the screen?

All the speakers were Earthquake from US and once on they filled the room, you see we just don't like boxes and they suited us fine, mind you it was about 2008 and that HT was the catalyst to commence EZYHD along with quite a few from DTV forums asking me to bring some back from OS trade show in HK) as HDMI cables in them days were not plentiful and a frightful price.
The reason the guy bought the house (for a record amount at the time) was the HT.

Looks great mate! Love everything neat and mostly hidden- great to keep the kids out of it!

Yes we must have the HT WAF wherever we have a house. The good woman must have it all neat and tidy 100% of the time too.

Thanks to all that replied to this topic.

 

Great to have some input to come up with a workable and wife approved solution! I have started some work on the sketch from above and have decided the Krix speakers horizontal and hidden in cabinet will be a good compromise for keeping things neat and negating the need for a acoustic screen.

 

I spoke with Screen Technics who will make me a custom screen to fit the recess. Ends up approx 90’ viewing size which will be enough for kids movies!! 

 

I have started making up the speaker cloth doors to make sure wife is happy and will get some black melamine ripped up for the carcass.

This was my third PJ with builtins a few years back. Hid screen in ceiling void.

I had this exact cutout.

 

Used a drop down tab tensioned screen and PSA 110’s for LCR places horizontal with the horn as rotated. (and for surrounds for that matter!) add in a PSA S3000i and Submersive for 15”x4 sub goodness. 

 

Works really well

Looks great. I think a sensible a compromise was made thanks to this forum.

 

I have the bottom carcass almost done. Will get it together in the next few weeks and post back. Just need to choose a projector and TV that will keep the kids happy for a few years until I upgrade to something decent! 

 

Cheers

Screen Technics screen arrived and installed this week, along with a 65’ Samsung TV. Very happy with the ST quality, built like a tank. Hidden up behind the overhead cabinet well, I put a removable trim to hide the cainnister and looks very discrete. Happy days! 

 

Bottom cabinet finished and will install over the next few days

Nice! Thanks for the splitter EZY- working beautifully!

 

Lower cabinet installed, will be putting a timber top on once my wife decides which timber she would like!

 

Installed Krix Tryptix along with a Denon 1500H, Apple 4K TV, Sony Blu Ray player, EZYHD splitter and Harmony Companion to control the lot.

 

Very happy with the Krix Tryptix and Seismix sub combo. I placed them on some foam eggshell and the shape means they naturally face upwards towards ear level. Despite the fronts being in a non ideal position, it is certainly enough for the purpose. Very crisp and full sound, even stereo is fantastic. I have picked up a another set and will be using them for surrounds, so 5 Tryptix and inceiling for Atmos. My young bloke is very excited!

Yes cabinet closed. Cabinet has open back  and running 2 AC infinity fans on a slave circuit. Have the same set up in my living room and runs cooler in the cabinet than my previous open TV bench!

Very nice setup. How is the slave circuit setup. Is it through the 12 volt trigger on the amp or do you have another solution?

Unfortunately on this amp the USB is powered even on standby. I use a Master/Slave power board. When amp is turned on, slave sockets become active. I have been using the Avico brand from Selbys with no issues.

Cabinets finished. Used all Blum soft close hinges, push to opens and upper cabinet lifters. Runs nice and smooth!

 

For the investment, I’m very happy. Nothing exciting but for a discreet install- sounds great and most importantly keeps the kids happy without the equipment open to little fingers! 

 

Thanks for for all the input and feedback!

Thanks mate! The kids are a few movies in, I have streamed the TDF is all I’ve manage so far! I need to pick a decent movie and hand the kids over to the grandparents and give it the berries!
