Perhaps a picture of the room would help everyone understand what you are dealing with. In my mind I picture a little cabinet sitting under the screen with a bunch of open space on either side where a sub could go.

You say you have a dedicated theater room, but you only have one place for a sub with absolutely no chance of moving it even an inch.....seems like a very strange way to set up a theater, but to each their own.

The only picture I have of the front. The left drawers are for all the movies. The AVR and BD player are in the middle. 3 open shelves to the right of that for cable box etc, and the sub on the far right. I have no where else to put any of that stuff other than below the screen when i designed and built the room. The room i not finished yet, have some more props and trim and things of that nature but should give you a pretty good idea.

Nice room but a tough one at that. what are the measurements ? screen size?..... any room behind the chairs... im guessing this has nothing to do with WAF.?

Denon 4520*

Although it looks like you have a walkway on either side of your chairs, it looks like it would be possible to "block" one of the aisles with a near field sub either to the lef or right of the seats pictured.  The other option, which is difficult to tell how much space you have or if it would work, would be to pull your front wall out 18" and place the subs, as many as you want at that point, behind the screen.

How about a XS15se right behind the chairs?

Here is a pic of the back of the room.

room is roughly 11x17, Screen is not a fixed screen but a painted wall. A 16:9 movie is 108" and a 2:35 movie is 120"

There's about 3 feet between the back wall and the back of the back row but that is used as walk space and for getting to the fridge and popcorn station which had to be built in-wall because of my limited space.

bear yeah I thought about both of those options, but bringing the wall up another 18" would put the main seating too close to the screen, it's already fairly close as is, also those transparent screens are beyond my budget. As far as blocking an aisle it would bottle neck the traffic for sure but I can see how it would work. What sub would be recommended if I went that route?

Yeah, space looks tight

Looks like you could fit a sub on one if the walkways between the chair and we all although it will not look clean.

Yeah it's definitely not wide open but for the limited space I had I think I did pretty good getting everything I wanted in there and having it not be too cramped. Going for a submarine theme.

Would an in wall sub be worth anything?

You could do an IB setup, but that might be difficult if it's your first DIY project.

Display - LG 65EF9500
Receiver - Denon 4311CI
Speakers - Klipsch RF-82 II's, RC-62 II, RB-61 II's
Subs - Rythmik FV15HP's

chalk that theater up to bad planning on your part. (beautiful theater by the way)

if it were my theater which it kinda was since my theater has the same dimensions as yours. lol

chairs to big. screen to big, hence your problem. if I wanted proper sound both would go. problem solved !!


1 car garage approx. same size- the screen was 80" .... although tight i had room for NHT vt-2 7.1 surround and muliple subs. i was pushing 3 citation amps.. as you can see the room was tight but proper planning gave me room for everything..

Bottleneck traffic? How much are people really walking in and out of the room? Especially at the same time.

Really cool room, love the theme. I can tell just by looking at the room that you wanted to go with the largest size screen that the room would allow. If it was me this is what I would do, on the left side where you have your movie storage I would put a XS15se or XS30es and turn it sideways so the drivers are facing the side walls, this way the sub is not sticking to far out into the room. I would build custom shelving in the best possible spot on either side wall for movie storage, possible breaking into the drywall and having it recessed into the wall to save space.

Probably don't want folks stumbling over a sub, especially if kids frequent the space. Cautious nature.

Mercury: well I wanted the biggest screen I could get in that room and the most comfortable seating I could afford for the mains. Just different priorities. I'm not willing to give up either to fix one null. Other than that one null everything else is pretty flat and looking good. BTW love your snack stand and the Spongebob lol.

Brian: actually I have people over quite often as my entire family and most of my friends live within 15 minutes of my house.

Mike: thanks, I finally got the 2 fish tanks on the left wall stocked with fish:) And yep you are correct in your assumption. And that is a very good idea I never thought of that. I just always thought the look of movies on shelves would be tacky but now I'll have to get out the measuring tape. I wouldn't want to recess in to the drywall as the room is soundproofed. Of course this is after I told my wife that I'm done with anything major so if I get in trouble may I use you as a scapegoat:)

Dude is not willing to compromise but he is expecting a bag of magic tricks. You have room to place to subs by each end of walkway. If you don't want that then don't complain. Lol

Sigh, when was I expecting a bag of tricks? Please quote that as I am very interested in what you find. And no there is not room to place TWO subs at the walkways as I explained before. And again, who's complaining, you need to reread my last post whoever you are?

So let me get this out in open for the 3rd time for those who apparently don't understand and just like to make jabs over a computer screen. I have not ever complained about anything, I have taken measurements and found a null and was on this forum to see if there was anything I could do to help it or reduce it, as that is the point of a forum like this, to get some advice from people who may know more than you do. If you have nothing to contribute and want to just put in a jab with a not so clever "lol" at the end of your jab like a 16 year old then I am sorry. I have done nothing to provoke that, just a simple guy trying understand all of this get some advice.

Out of the box a bit but could you consider putting something small in the ceiling/wall?

If not, could you consider adding a *small* cube in the back of the room....maybe a 9" cube for example?

Also,

Before moving forward with any solution I would double check the measurements(and take a measurement ear level for each seat.

Show us all graphs..smile.gif

One other option to consider - you could place one or 2 subs under your left & right towers - I can't tell from the picture if the 2nd row of seats are on risers - but assume that they are - the PSA's are built like tanks - very inert & strong enough to support your speakers, might be worth a try.

If you decide to break into the walls you can still soundproof, use double sheets of drywall with green glue in between for your shelving.

Tom: I didn't even know they made in wall/ceiling subs wow. They're 8" cones, how many would you recommend? My towers have 4 8" drivers in them and I know it's common knowledge to leave all speakers at small, but in this case would it be alright to set them at large? I am borrowing my sis in law's laptop again tonight so I can get those graphs on tonight and take a measurement with my towers set to large.

GGsanta: Hmm another option I never thought of. Would have to cut down on the front cabinet on both sides but it could definitely be done. Yes the second row is on a riser. How would the towers sound though not being ear level anymore?

Mike: Yeah that's true and I think I have some left over GG too.

I wonder if there would be an enclosure that could fit IN the riser? The riser is 13" off the ground. Would the driver being so close to the ground not be good? I would rather dig in to the riser than my walls or ceiling if it came down to it.

I use apple when I can get my hands on it. We mostly use cherry and maple.

Make the trip, it will be a good time for all. If it doesn't rain we might move the party to my house for an outdoor movie. My neighbor has a white vinyl-sided, two story house and the side with no windows faces my backyard. It's not the best picture quality, but the kids love it.

Here is a very bad cell phone picture of an after movie Halo match for the grownups.
