What I am calling phase I or proof of concept. While I finished the basement over the last year I decided to build a space for a home theater. Since I was adding 940sft that on top of the theater would include a rec room, 4th bedroom, 1/2 bath, office/gun room, 2 storage areas 220 for a nice big air compressor the budget simply was not there to go full bore. The extent of any sound mitigation is R13 fluffy in the walls and a double layer in the ceiling (one layer tight against the subfloor a 3in gap and another basically flush with the joists). There is a "solid" exterior door...solid foam. So far the sound is really not bad, the theater is under the master bedroom and part of the living room. With the sound at about 55-60 the door closed you can have a normal conversation in the adjoining rec room...you can hear the theater noise but nothing you have to shout over. The wife has even watched movies/shows upstairs at normal volume 10-11 on a older Samsung soundbar and other than occasional bass not really notice.

Phase II if it ever happens will be some robust soundproofing with 2 layers drywall, snot (as my aunt who does soundproofing/structure work), hat/channel, attention to outlet/box/recessed light openings and a better door.

Room dimensions are 18' 8" (screen wall to back wall) 12' 10" x 7' 8". Riser is 6in tall, pressure treated lumber laying flat with 2x4 and 3/4 TG.

Equipment -
Benq 2050
Denon svc x1200w
5.0.2 Pioneer Andrew Jones
klipsch R-12SW
PS3
Roku3
Silver Ticket 120 screen

Looks good! You'll have some fun in there. While you wait for Phase II, you might consider doing some basic treatments on first reflections, etc. You can make your own panels for a reasonable cost and it should make a good improvement in audio quality. Shan

Oh, yeah...been reading the DIY panels on the forum. It needs some work in that area.
