Yep, that's exactly right. I have a High Power screen and needed to get the projector as close to my eye line as I could. It's high enough that it's over everyone's head but it is annoying when someone passes through the light beam.

Here's my almost complete theater. I only took me a year to get this far . Still working on the equipment closet and building a couple of subs for behind the screenwall. The screen is a 2.05:1 CIA 136x67 Dalite HP with DIY 4 way motorized masking system.

I can see why Steve. The room looks very nice! Looks like you have four 15's in the back. Are they DIY subs? I bet they put out some serious SPL. Are you planning on adding acoustic panels? Looks like your room has a lot of hard flat surfaces like my room. I hope to add them sometime after the first of the year.

Thanks, those are DIY subs. I'm waiitng for the Duratex paint to arrive so I can finish them. There are 2 12" Shiva-X's with dual 15" PR's in a 4cuft cabinet being driven by an EP2500. I'm working on 2 more 18" Maelstrom-X's for behind the screen wall.

The walls are already acoustically treated. I hired Bryan Pape to do the design. There's 2" OC703 full coverage on the front wall with super chunk bass traps in the corners. Side walls are 1" OC703 up to 60" and the rear wall is 2" OC703 full coverage with FSK scrim. The screenwall and columns are covered in GOM FR701 and the walls are GOM Anchorage Mulberry

Steve Smith... You need to shrink those photos... It's a pain to scroll.

Nice theater!

Wow, just happend to peek in and found this.

Wish I could give you specifics, but the waiter was found at a yard sale. I would imagine something similar can be easily found at Home Decor stores.

Here is my finished theater. Was about a 5 month project -- taking all the valuable learnings from the smart, creative people on this forum.

Nice rope lights! I like the "feel." And 5mo is fast work! What does your room look like without the accent lights?

Hello

Here are a couple of times photos from my little home cinema.





















In Germany, everything is a bit smaller, but I hope you enjoy it still useable.

I think it will serve it's function very well. The fact that it's small doesn't detract anything from the moments when the lights go out and movie starts.

Well, it's been almost 1 year to the day that I started to redo my ht. One year ago I discovered mold behind my screenwall...due to my leaking patio door. Since I was tearing it apart to fix the water problem I decided to give it a face lift. My inspiration was drawn from gpowers for the fabric frames and YW84U for the equipment rack and faceplates.

I wish I had taken some before shots so I could post the comparisons...but when you have to tear apart your ht due to a water problem the last thing you are thinking about is taking pictures... Anyways, just picture a plain jane room the same layout only just drywall walls painted black.


Shot from the door to the screen wall


From the front left to the back of the room


Shot of the side wall to show off the fabric frames


Shot of the rack


Another one of the rack

It's been a long year. I love the way the fabric frames turned out...but don't know if I'd do it again...man that was a lot of work!!!

Nice work. Do you have any larger (file size) images of the walls? I would like to see the details and the small pics in the thread do not really allow me to see that detail.

I like the size variations you used to create interest. And the outside corners are a nice touch. Looks like a lot of work. But I still like the look of the Fabric Frames.
