Good idea, will do that later. This thread was to seek out a starting place because if someone had suggested a concrete folded horn I was game as is my 'crete guy. Those plans have to be set in stone so to speak. I figured that IB would also be mentioned and that wall will also need to be located early.
22K is everything that has a wire in it, going to it, or near it. I may splurge more on the projector but really don't care to spend enough for 3d. The screen, stage, and speakers will all be DIY. Risers, walls, floor and ceiling will all be concrete which is all in the house budget, not the HT budget. After reading "What I would do different" thread, the risers may be carpentry instead of solid. That thread also has convinced me to look at room within a room. That would make future modifications and changes easier, not to mention acoustical treatments.
How much space do I need to lose for an IB setup? How much space does an IB need? There are no firm answers in the IB forums, also no formulas I can find. I should add here that
You will hear for me, most everything that makes noise will be from your plans. But for the Super Sub, the rest of the speaker system is the easy part.
Ummm, this is my bunker. The other half of the basement is a fully self contained workshop that will also double as living quarters if need be. There is a reason, not really a subject for this forum, I have so much livestock and a nice chunk of land. Anything that gets through 6" reinforced concrete walls and 10" poured ceiling...... well the rest of the family is just going to have to deal with it. I should add that the living part of the house is not actually directly over the basement. There is a parking garage directly over the HT and the Kitchen, laundry, pantry are over the rest. The home is U shaped with the rest of the structure being built over a 6' crawl space. I'm sort of building into the side of a hill so that I'll have drive in access to the basement and also the garage above.
Thank you for the replies so far. The rest of the home has been in planning for 5 years and all of that is pretty much done. Back in the day I was a licensed general contractor and thanks to the codes and laws around here I can GC this project as well. The kid that I groomed to take over my construction business is my builder, my concrete guy is my Son in Law, the electrician is my fishing and hunting buddy, and my plumber is the next door neighbor. What can go wrong?
