Hey everyone, hoping someone has had a similar issue and can offer advice -
Currently live in a large home in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin.... I am relocating for Minneapolis for work and will be moving into an apartment that is the same square footage as my current home theater room/bar.
Current basement setup is:
110" screen + HD20 projector
55" LED next to the screen (yes two displays side by side - blame nfl sunday ticket)
Main sources are - HTPC, PS3, Direct TV box - all have the HDMI signal split - one side going to the LED tv the other going to a receiver....
The receiver feeds the projector and a 5.1 surround setup....
this is all in a 25'x35' basement and works great... hangup is the new apartment is less square feet than my current basement room.
My current idea is to have a low rising tv stand that the TV would sit on (upper wall of photo above ^).... above the stand (there are 12' ceilings in the apt.) have some ikea "floating" cabinets, then cut a 88" x 3" hole in the bottom of the cabinet then a motorized drop down screen would come out come of cabinet through that hole (would hide the screen and cords from the Mrs.).... and hopefully (haven't measured yet) the screen would stop ~6" above the top of the TV screen.
I would have the projector hidden on top of the cabinets in the kitchen so I could get a full throw needed to fill the screen.
New apartment layout:
Any other ideas or thoughts on how to keep a similar setup despite the extreme drop in space?
