    Home gym stereo upgrade

    Wanting to improve the sound in my home gym . Going to tear the wall apart where the black Danby mini fridge is now ,and rebuild it with different stud dimensions to accommodate a new fridge I bought yesterday.
    The new fridge has a stainless steel door which I like the looks of , plus has more capacity for beer .
    It’s sitting on the floor to the left .



    Installing a 12” paradigm subwoofer under the Oled and flush with the wall . It’s cabinet will be hidden under the staircase so that it doesn’t take up any real-estate. Also adding paradigm slim speakers beside the Oled



    Where you see the towels on the left , that will be widened and become the new opening for the stereo . Whatever is left over in the middle will be the area to store towels and miscellaneous.


    I rip all my CDs to a NAS drive and will be streaming them from a Cambridge music server


    Probably not till Christmas,but after those three walls are replaced with mdf, the next step will be to replace the plywood with mdf on the wall with the large mirror to minimize resonances , and install a wall mounted paradigm studio speaker on each side of the mirror


    Will be posting pics as things progress

    If I recall correctly, you've got drop ceiling throughout your gym. If that's the case, it's a shame not to use the drop ceiling to do your stereo upgrade, making use of otherwise wasted rafter space. You could DIY 1 or 2 infinite baffle subwoofers into the drop ceiling as well, spaced properly you'll get much better bass distribution.

    Not a terrible idea. The ceiling is called grid lock ,it’s a special system that only uses up 1” of space.
    The tiles are hard to get in depending on the circumstance, so I went with those vinyl surfaced fibreglass ones .
    They are not strong enough to support a speaker, but obviously I could reinforce the ones that had speakers in them .

    Either way this system should hit hard and be enough SQ for being a gym .
    Also I’m tired of spilling beer upstairs when I’m on a runaway streaming YouTube music videos , so this is going to be my new beer drinking man cave area , as it doesn’t matter if you spill a beer on the rubber flooring .

    I’m sure hoping . Srs I’m going to stock it up full of different brands so there’s no chance of ever running out again mid drunk .

    I added 8" Sonance ceiling speakers before we drywalled the ceiling in the joist cavity. I took the time to block off an enclosure for the proper air volume, but you can find pre-made mounting pans that will get you there as well. The speakers are hardwired to a Niles volume controller and IR repeater and back to the main stereo amp. To be honest, it is hard to hear them when doing cardio on the treadmill, etc. since they are hooked up as Zone 2 and shared with other rooms in the house. I usually just use bluetooth headphones during workouts and have the stereo on for background listening.

    it looks to be a nice system you're planning, I have two real vices, my home gym and my HiFi system, over the years I've spent a considerable amount on both, but I've never regretted one penny of it.

    The danger in both cases is that striving for perfection can become an obsession, I've recently made a large upgrade to my home HIFi system by adding a new Luxman L509x amplifier and a pair of Martin Logan ESL 9 speakers and I've been trying to work out how to fit my old speakers into my gym space, I have a pair of Proac Response 2.5 floor standing speakers and they need a lot of real estate to sound their best, I'm reluctant to lose any of my gym equipment, so it's a bit of a puzzle trying to work them into my space.

    I think what you're doing is a more aesthetically pleasing option, food for thought?.

    Maybe try hanging the from the ceiling instead of occupying floor space? Maybe hang them upside down, so tweeters are ear level?

    I had a tough time deciding on what to do for speakers beside the Oled . I never would have bought these had I not found out they used the same drivers that were in my paradigm sound bar ,and that sound bar was not terrible at all and had fairly good midbass .
    This is a pic of them, but I’m not going to use their stands , but wall mount them so there right next to the Oled .
    I’ll build 45 degree mounts so that they are on the same plain as the screen .

    https://www.paradigm.com/en/lcr/millenia-lp-2


    This isn’t really my first choice, as ideally I’d like to buy raw drivers and build my own , but I just don’t have the time right now .

    These are the speakers I bought years back for each side of the mirror . their discontinued,so I got a really good deal.
    They use the walls cavity as an enclosure, and I’m putting 3/4” mdf on the backside of the wall and adding a thin layer of fibreglass insulation behind the drivers for reflections etc from the rear of the driver . I have some dynamat left over also

    Mmm, they're big old units, my ceilings are 9ft so there might be enough room to place the tweeters at ear level, but to sound their best they need to be about 4ft from the wall, as they have a rear ported base, I'm not sure how those low frequencies would bounce around so near the ceiling, I could block up the rear ports, but I'm guessing this would have a significant impact on the performance.

    TBH I don't see the Proac's working in an upside down configuration, if I can't find a more elegant solution, I'll sell them and put the funds towards a more suitable speaker set up.

    Looks like a very fun project. I’ve gotten lazy with audio stuff…. Went with just a sound bar or apple/Amazon devices for music. Shame on you for spilling beer…. Hahaha

    looks like a fun project. you've got some nice gear your putting in. I've been tempted to to install some type of NAS-streaming device. The Cambridge looks sweet.
    I also ripped all my music to a few hard drives. But for now I just play on an i-touch connected to my AV receiver. Gotta have good tunes in the gym.

    One of the first things i did when building the gym was to run in-wall speaker cable to various locations. As of now I have a 7-channel Klipsch system with subwoofer system in the gym.
    In-ceiling speakers as well and bookshelves in the other part of the Gym.

    I have spilled beers upstairs in my living room on a few occasions, so it’s going to be nice to have a man cave that’s beer proof lol .
    Just need a decent sound system to vibe to . Obviously the stereo is for working out also , as I find the right music gets me in the zone

    I also ripped all my music to a few hard drives. But for now I just play on an i-touch connected to my AV receiver. Gotta have good tunes in the gym.

    One of the first things i did when building the gym was to run in-wall speaker cable to various locations. As of now I have a 7-channel Klipsch system with subwoofer system in the gym.
    In-ceiling speakers as well and bookshelves in the other part of the Gym.
    Sounds like a nice setup . Previously I used a paradigm sound bar that came with an 8” subwoofer . The sub was amazing for its size .

    Nice setup! I've become a fan of Paradigm. In our new gym we did E80-R's in the ceiling, an HSU ULS-15 sub, powered by an Anthem MDX-16 (that we're replacing our Triad's with). For the money I think Anthem has the best room correction out there and it really helped in the gym. We tried DIRAC and Audyssey and couldn't get as good of results. The best we found was Lyngdorf but couldn't stomach the $'s.

    Our theatre is M&K THX 150's that I've had for about 20 years (+Anthem 1120).

    Living Room is Paradigm sound bar + 4 E80-A's in the ceiling for surround and back (+ Anthem 720). We're really happy w/ how it sounds. With size/aesthetics an issue I got a Seismic 110 sub and it's quite amazing for its size.

    My bike (and future rower) is in an attic room with an small Apple HomePod. Good enough but I would like to find an affordable upgrade some day. :-)

    Well it breaks my heart to do this , but I finally started the tear down process .


    Would be nice to remove the brick chimney while I’m at it ,as the hot water tank and furnace are newer and vent out the side of the house , but wow that would be a lot of work ,as I can’t imagine how many bricks would be involved ,as it goes from the basement right to the roof .
    There’s enough real estate behind for shelving as is though , and lots of clearance for a larger fridge as long as it stays to the right .

    It’s sitting on the floor to the left .



    Installing a 12” paradigm subwoofer under the Oled and flush with the wall . It’s cabinet will be hidden under the staircase so that it doesn’t take up any real-estate. Also adding paradigm slim speakers beside the Oled



    Where you see the towels on the left , that will be widened and become the new opening for the stereo . Whatever is left over in the middle will be the area to store towels and miscellaneous.


    I rip all my CDs to a NAS drive and will be streaming them from a Cambridge music server


    Probably not till Christmas,but after those three walls are replaced with mdf, the next step will be to replace the plywood with mdf on the wall with the large mirror to minimize resonances , and install a wall mounted paradigm studio speaker on each side of the mirror


    Will be posting pics as things progress

    Why do you need a place for towels and a refrigerator in the basement?
    If it were me, I would take down the chimney and create room for more gym equipment.

    Pleasant arrangement! I've turned into an enthusiast of Paradigm. In our new exercise center we did E80-R's in the roof, a HSU ULS-15 sub, controlled by an Anthem MDX-16 (that we're supplanting our Triad's with). For the cash I think Anthem has the best room amendment out there and it truly helped in the rec center. We attempted DIRAC and Audyssey and couldn't get as great of results. The best we found was Lyngdorf yet couldn't stomach the $'s.

    Our performance center is M&K THX 150's that I've had for around 20 years (+Anthem 1120).

    Lounge is Paradigm sound bar + 4 E80-An's in the roof for encompass and back (+ Anthem 720). We're truly cheerful w/how it sounds. With size/style an issue I got a Seismic 110 sub and it's very stunning for its size.

    My bicycle (and future rower) is in a loft room with a little Apple HomePod. Adequate yet I might want to track down a reasonable redesign sometime in the future.

    I sweat when I work out and find I’m always in need of a towel, and I drink a ton of water , so I like having easy access to ice cold water.
    More equipment would be nice though . I’d live to have a leg press machine and a hack squat machine . Next lifetime

    No where near what you're doing MajorTendonitis, however you inspired me to finally improve my gym audio. Saw your post about the music server you got.

    I've been using the Fire tablet to stream Amazon music to the stereo. This weekend took the steps of adding all my music to a Plex server, installing it on the tablet, and now have access to all my personal music on the home network. Won't have to hear the concentration breaking censored music Amazon randomly inserts.
