My humble theater

This is my very humble theater. The space is very small. 16ft by 12ft converted frog. This is my first HT room. JVC 49u, Dragonfly 133 inch screen, Onkyo 9 series amp, samsung Bluray player, Home episode speakers 7.1, PS4, Xbox 360, Apple router, control 4 module. I am amazed by what I have seen in this forum. Will try to post better pictures at a later time.

Thanks. The color scheme was based on the bar that I built last year, just outside the HT door...



Black is pretty easy to match and works well functionally in a HT. My wife was a little leery of all black, but she was the one who came up with the idea of the bead board for wainscoting and chair rail on the bottom half... it adds some subtle detail without being distracting.

When Curtis G offered up some unused GoM locally, it was almost the exact same blue as the rest of our basement, so it tied in nicely for the sound treatment panels.

I'd poured black concrete for the 10'x10' bartop. Same black bead board as the HT. The wine rack was my first project with a kreg jig... love it. And the TV in the middle of the wine rack is hooked up to the 2nd HDMI output of my onkyo receiver, so it shows whatever the projector is showing. That works out perfectly when we have lots of people over like the Super Bowl party.

Not much of a build thread since I cranked it out in two weeks and didn't take many pictures... more of a "built thread":

I need to add the latest photos to that thread.

Yours looks a hell of a lot better than my original. I documented it in my first post on my build thread as having a "white trash" decor. Great equipment, horrible and ugly room. You have great equipment, too, and the room isn't bad at all. I know exactly how you feel though. Your situation and mine was exactly the same. I had been on AVS drooling over these rooms for a while and it had gotten to the point where I rarely went in there because I became so disappointed with my half ass thrown together room. I didn't even have carpet.

When do you plan on moving?

I am not so much disappointed with the the looks, but more so with not doing double drywall and working more on sound containment. I had a noise complaint and the police came knocking at my door one night. It was like the first real chance I had at sitting down and watching a big bass movie in my newly finished theater. (EOT). I was 10 minutes into the movie and the cops were knocking at my front door. The reason I did not focus more on sound containment was because I have ran multiple subs for years and "loud" and nobody ever said a peep. So I thought I was safe, but I guess moving over a couple of rooms had a pretty big effect on what my neighbors could actually hear. It is like having a 4 cylinder Mustang. I have really been that bummed out about it that I really don't even feel like using the room anymore. Just the way I feel. If I can not enjoy the room the way I want without people crying and calling the cops, what is the point?

Your neighbors suck for that. I mean really....how loud can it possibly be outside? It also has to be above a certain spl and after certain times before the cops can do anything about it anyway. Believe me, I have looked into this.

Where are pics of you completed theater? I looked in your build thread and didn't really see. Maybe, I just missed it?

Edit: I went back and looked and found them. I was looking at the end of your thread and they were on another page. I have the 100 posts per page setup. They are also at the beginning. I'm an idiot.

Theater looks great and I bet it sounds great too! How are those HST's? I am a big fan of those.

That sucks man. I have the same problem as I live in an apartment. I now have the sub cut by 6 dB to keep the police from coming again. Its just annoying they call the police instead of asking you to just turn it down. Plus I got mine in the middle of the day on the weekend. **shaking my head**

Just waiting for my lease to end in July. They didn't like the excuse that I was product testing for my job.

Yeah, they do suck. I hate this neighborhood. I don't talk to any of them and I don't even wave anymore. I think they all think they are better than everybody else because they are rich. I have walked my property during the day with the system running at reference and I could barley hear it. I think it is at night when it is super quiet where the problem lies. These homes are not close together, but again I think at night even the homes that are further away can hear it just due to how quiet it is. I am just going to have to wait and just keep it cool here till I sell this place and get out of here. The HST's are incredible, but unfortunately they are disconnected at the present time as I am just running the 215's full range. I have thought of selling them and it sucks because I don't want to sell them. I don't know what to do. Here are a couple of pics of them. They are HUGE

Sorry to hear you have the same problem. I agree, I would have had more respect if the people would have just came and talked to me. There is a new young couple that bought the house across the way and I think they are the culprits. They have never waved or even tried to talk to me and as far as I know, they are the same with others. I want to know if the noise is bothering people as that is not my goal. I have respect for people and I would be upset if I knew I was bothering them with unwanted noise. But If that is the way they want to handle things, I can play the same game. I have been just watching movies I want to play loud during the day or early on weekends, but I prefer to watch movies at night when it is time to relax.

Didn't realize you got a complaint when you were in a house. That's nuts. There is no way they could hear it inside their house. I can understand they may be able to hear some rumbling outside but who cares. Def annoying.

I wonder if it is subsonics that are rattling their dishes... If so not much you can do other than either turning it down or cutting off the ultra low bass. I know Denon has a setting that stops the ultra low frequencies from going through the wall.

The only thing anyone else did was hang/finish the drywall and put in carpet. #4 I enjoy what I made, at the end of the day, that is what it is all about. Total cost of the room is about $9000=$9500.

If I can do it, ANYONE can!! Threw in some photo's of my vintage Star Wars collection as well for you geeks out there. Basement remodel will feature some of that...

Some background on the room, I unfortunately had limited space to work with in the particular area, it is about 13.5 x 18. No perfectly ideal but it seems to be fine. I am a minimalist so I tried to do a tasteful room. Behind the drywall, the entire room is done in Roxul Safe'N Sound. Two layers of drywall on ceiling. So that was my sound proofing and the results really aren't bad. Above is the kitchen and with the volume cranked you can't hear much at all. Most of the sound reverberates out the back of the theater and up the stairs when the door is open in the back of the room. You can hear nothing on the top floor of my house and that was really my main goal. Be able to blast it even if my wife and kid are asleep upstairs. No problems there.
The front stage was the hardest thing for me. An IT guy doing that curved wood stage was kind of a joke. Props to all wood workers out there. LOL

For the stage, I did use sand and for the riser in the back, I filled it with Safe N Sound as well. So you can see, I at LEAST tried to do some things right with the help of this forum and other reading.






















Added some photos with various scene settings of the Lutron Spacer System..

Thanks for looking at my humble attempt at a media room.
What are those chairs? and where did you get the 3d glasses rack?

It takes me back to being about 6 seeing those star wars figures...

I want to die in my sleep like grandpa... not kicking and screaming like the people in his car.
