Thanks. =) For the money, they have exceeded my expectations. But keep in mind they aren't super high quality. I have been using them for a little over 2.5 years and they haven't had any problems besides one of my friends busted a thigh support when he went to push down the recliner. It is a very easy fix and instead of the cheap particle board they used I'm probably going to replace it with some pine or something. They are pretty comfortable chairs though.

Since I got around to documenting my build in a thread, it's time to put the photos here, too. This thread has been really useful for ideas (better than the CEDIA awards book, IMO!).

I'm very glad you like it, as you'll see in the post I just added to my thread, I have your theater to thank for the whole "look"! So a double thank you!

Ceiling is 10' in the front of the room, with the trays raised 1' above that from the soffit.

Fantastic theater. These early pictures though, not sure if I have seen a more dramatic shot that illustrates the ingenuity and sickness that prevails here.

Well done.

Indeed a sickness... but at least I'm in the company of fellow addicts.

Have to totally agree with that statement. Any one that is willing to dig under their existing house to create a space out of the earth is one hard core HT enthusiast! It almost looks like they are rebuilding the twin towers in that construction photo. Massively impressive! Nice Job!

My theater, just completed around the new year.

After


Walls are a dark brown, but the flash lightened them up in this photo. Front wall and ceiling are black. Carpet is black. Chairs are Roman's models, the Escapes (front) and the Lagoons (back).

Thanks! It turned out well, and was really simple. (though I didn't do the woodwork myself) Just a simple bookshelf box with some trim, glass shelves and an under-cabinet light at the top.

The light shining down through the BD cases and the glass worked out well...

Nice! I'm SO glad to see another room with an off-center screen!

Yes, that was a last minute change. The screen was going to be centered, but it was just too low for the back row because of the soffit. I happy with it being off-center, but I planned all the front conduit runs and speaker wire outlets centered. But with the speaker placement and the media shelf, the only one you can see is the center channel wall plate below and to the right of the center speaker. But it's inconspicuous, so I'm happy.

That's good to hear because I have been worried about my own. I'm hoping that somehow it will be beneficial for the sound (room modes and such) but I'm overwhelmingly ignorant of the subtleties of that.

I looked at your build thread and I'll think you'll be just fine. Looks great.

Named after one of my favorite movie characters.

Just took an existing room and some existing equipment and added it to a new projector and screen.

Zino 410 HD HTPC with 7 TB of storage
Microsoft XBox 360
Onkyo Receiver
Harmony Remote
Paragon Contemporary Popcorn Machine
Epson 8350 Projector
106" screen
Bose 6.1 Speaker System

Going to change the ceiling tiles to gray or black. All movies are stored on the PC or behind the screen. Simple, low budget, buts works nice with the limited space and low ceilings.

I know this thread is for you guys to show your beautiful theaters and I don't mean to intrude but one concern I have (I'm trying to make my own theater as well) is if you have an AT screen which I'm probably going to get, if your receiver is in the back of the screen connected to the speakers and if your bluray player and other devices are connected to the receiver how do you connect it to the projector or does it even work that way? It'd be awesome if someone can break that for me on what you guys did.

Usually the only thing behind the screen is speakers, with wires run elsewhere to an equipment rack. The equipment could be in the front of the room under the screen, or somewhere else. Projector is run from the equipment location.

Lots of creative ways to hide wiring....add a soffit, or crown, or any other molding.

HTIB (home theater in a box) comes with speaker wire. However, those are usually not recommended for optimal audio reproduction. If you buy independent speakers, you will have to purchase speaker wire separately from a store such as monoprice.com. Furthermore, you will most likely need wire that is approved to make in wall runs which monoprice carries. hope this helps and good luck!
