Kyle Bosso - I expected more.
Carp - I haven't decided on aspect ratio yet. I like 16:9 but the 2:35:1 or variations may be something to look at....really would be split between those about 50/50 or a tiny lean toward the 16:9. Big sports fan currently but I'm guessing as I get older it will start trending toward movies a bit more with the time I'll have available.
Is there anything out there on what aspect ratios will dominate the next decade? Will HD sports continue to be in 16:9? Will 2:35:1 continue to be the blu-ray format of choice? Things I haven't looked at yet.
Ceiling height will be 9'.
I put it in the corner for AT easy access and view for entire room (for the most part).
I think I'll likely be moving the fireplace back to the corner behind the S on shuffleboard if I can still feasibly get a small seating area by it as well as a regulation or close to sized shuffleboard down the road along that wall. Before I didn't think I'd have enough room - but that stretch to the door is about 30' so should be ok.
Trying to think of seating configurations as well as viewing angles for large parties from the bar over to the nook on the right of the screen.
Anyways, appreciate any help - first time and maybe last time ever designing a house from scratch.
I'm also not sure if I'll have "enough" displacement for that room size, I might have to take the drivers out and get ported boxes (I can't believe I just typed that). Or just double up on subs or maybe get Mark to get me 4-21" FTWs for the bottom of the AT screen.
What about hiding a couple subs in the bar seating area base or a couple on a seating bench that could be under the window nook on the right rear of the basement?
I suppose this is where you pay the man to design something but I'd rather not.
