the room is 12' wide 11 1/2' feet long. it used to have french doors, i removed them last month. i'm only going to have the two recline charis for now,

i think anding another row would make the room crowded what do you think?

going with a 100'' inch screen, and replacing my surround sound with logetech z5500. buying a hd65 and most likely a fixed screen.

the brain of the theater will be a pc hidden behind somewhere in the room, running a 3.0 amd dual core, 1.5 terabyte drive, bluray, hdmi, and opitcial for the audio.

how does that setup sound? any suggestions?

the carpet is coming, up and with the color of the furniture, i was thinking of the scarface theme, half black half beige? it sounds good in my head but not sure about the realitly of it?

soild color carpet and what color paint for the walls?

sould i remove the dvd rack or leave it?

last question, if this was your Theater what would you do with it?

Just thought that I would give you a heads up, I don't think the HD65 will throw a 100" image in that room, my guess is that 92" will be max. Just make sure you measure before ordering up that fixed screen
