You know I mean business now. Done cut me a hole in the wall.
Looks like a knife sticking out of the wall (on the left)
Did Cheryl throw that at you?
Why did you cut a hole in the wall?
To show that I mean business.
The entertainment center is going to go through that wall.
It's exploratory surgery.
I must have missed some previous conversations. How/why is the center going to go through the wall?
To show he means business.
Dunno what that wall did to you, but i bet it won't do it again.
I like the description of exploratory hole.
It was the warning shot.
I don't want it sucking up all the space in an already smallish living room. I'll cut the studs and slide the whole unit through the hole ... I needed to know where the bottom plate (2"x4") sat elevation wise so that I could measure up from that.
I wasn't going to do this but it'll only take a minute. Here's the real hole.
I wanted to make all the other walls behave so this one had to take the hit.
What's on the other side of wall? You will be able to just go around and hook it all up? I like that idea. I've always wanted to do a false-wall with a service chase, but don't have enough room in my current house.
On the other side of the wall is my living room. This is where the back of the entertainment center goes and it has a door on this side for access. This side is our spare room aka ManTown.
I gotta silicone the glass in the doors and get down to Eddie's to wrap things up.
Rick, where's the best place to get those speaker connector wall plate things?
PartsExpress or Monoprice. Monoprice seems to be about a $1 cheaper per plate and they appear to be identical to the ones I bought from PartsExpress.
They also sell them on Amazon (I forget if you have Prime or not). I bought mine years ago from PartsExpress because Monoprice didn't have them, yet.
That's cool. Im guessing you have another rig in ManTown? Or are you gonna do dual monitors, zone 2 etc? Either way, it's nice to have the option and have the back of everything with EZ access.
On mine, I have learned to become a contortionist if I need to change something. Headlamp on, and squeeze back there carefully.
What will the final projection of cabinet into Mantown be? I am somewhat worried as I have yet to visit this mystical destination and already it is shrinking down in size
Yep ... it's gone through some changes too.
Probably around 16". The wall sucks up around 4" and another 4" into the living room. Something like that anyway. I've got this 6"x6"x96" aluminum I-beam that I'm going to use to support the wall above the hole. I need to open up some wall on the other side to figure out exactly how that's to go in. Man ... what have I gotten myself into?
Didn't see that, guess that was all going on before I joined the forum.
Yeah ... I was normal before I got here. Your probably doomed too now.
Yeah ... snafu normal.
You know .... I never new what that meant. So, uhm, yeah ... there was plenty of snafu as well. Wow ... I could write volumes.
