I'm really wanting to install a ceiling fan into my 'theatre room'. Not 100% committed, but seriously romanced by the idea of having a ceiling fan. I just think they are really cool (arr arrr arrr). I don't have AC and the room does get stuffy. Especially in the summertime with the 60" Panasonic Plasma contributing to the heat in the room as well.
Matthews Fan Co. 52 inch diameter. 10 inches from ceiling to bottom of blades.
The room will be approx 13.5' front to back. Front wall will be 14' across and back wall will be approx 17' across. The ceiling will be finished drywall 8' high. The fan would be positioned in the middle of the room. Not sure yet exactly how I will be orienting the 60" tv at the front wall (on a stand). Centred or to one side.
Front speaker setup is the Golden Ears Technology soundbar.
I've heard some people describe a 'wop wop wop' modulation while using their fans. I wonder though if these are being used at high speeds. I'd probably be using the lower settings out of the 6 available speeds.
I'm going to go with the 3 blade variant vs 5 blade thinking less surface area could help minimize audio distortions.
Can anyone out there with ceiling fans tell me about their experiences with them? Please describe the type of fan you have. Number of blades, width, speed used.
I'm also going to be doing some room treatments. Bass traps at the back corners with built in shelf for the surround speakers. 2 possibly 3 home made acoustic absorbers for the front and back walls. Some for the ceiling as well maybe.
