It looks like it came from Clarence's theater to me.

Edit: here is his theater build:
Clarence's new HT built in 2 weeks for Super Bowl

I don't think he has a Bar build theater..

Room looks great, but I am curious how the center channel sounds that high over the screen. Seems a bit high. What are your thoughts?

I don't have a build thread on the bar, but I added some notes to the Super Bowl HT build thread in my signature so we don't clutter up this thread.

Hey Reefdiver! Actually it is angled down into the viewing area behind the screen. I am running a 7.1 system and it sounds incredible!. When I crank it up to thx reference levels like on "Avatar" it is a great experience. I have the Onkyo 929 and Home episode 700 series speakers/subwoofer. I need some acoustic treatments to finish the room. I am pretty happy with the results of my first theater! Went with the non glare black paint and the viewing of movies is......well incredible.

I just discovered this thread and have enjoyed it very much .. lots of inspiration here ... wish I'd found it before I started. I just finished mine last month after about a 7 mo build in my basement. It was a low budget DIY build and I hesitate somewhat to call it a 'home theater' since I use it more for TV/video than movies so far but it has a number of home theater elements combined with informal media rooms. It's approx 12' x 13' at one end of an approx 12' x 37' multipurpose room with approx 7.5' ceiling height and although I demo'd the existing ceiling before starting, I had to integrate the new ceiling design into the existing room. I did the whole project myself including the 105" wide screen which is MDF with the RS-MM-LL V2 custom mix. The wall panels were inspired by GPowers and are GOM wrapped OC703. Because it was an existing drywalled space, I didn't get into serious sound deadening but put in 2 layers of 3.5" Roxul into the ceiling and valences plus towers of triangular Roxul in the rears of the front speaker enclosures to act as base traps. Also filled the space under the cabinets with sand. Overall, I find the sound to be better than I was expecting for my modest speaker setup. Would like to upgrade to Atmos next year and the rears of my 7.1 setup are already in the ceiling so will probably add two ceiling fronts and run as 5.1.4. I think I'll also go back and re-do the screen to something closer to 115-20 .. I know the Sony HW40ES can handle it with a projection distance of about 160" and main seating at 120".
Other budget A/V equipment - Receiver: Yamaha - HTR6090 Speakers: Andrew Jones Pioneer LCR SP-FS52 & C22s Sides: JBL floorstanding CST55 Rears: Paradigm OM-110s ceiling Sub: single Klipsch KSW10 Sources: Motorolla 3416 PVR; LG BD550 Blu-ray; Apple TV; Popcorn Hour streaming from Seagate NAS Lighting: Insteon-controlled center LEDs and quartz valence pots; also dimmable, color selectable LED strips in valence




Sorry .. I was too busy building to take pictures or start a build thread but I did post more details here: Ian's Media Room
