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.

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.

This looks amazing. Can you post list of colors too. It is hard to fully capture it due to camera and monitor calibration issues. I am interested in Colors of wlls, ceiling, carpet and cabinets.

Hi all, I've completed about 95% of my home theater, approximately 11' x 23' x 7.5'. Very modest, but still went over budget. Just now need to have a riser built for the rear seating and install surrounds. A few details:

* Screen wall and theater ceiling painted with Rosco (6003) Velour Black, walls with Sherwin Williams (7674) Peppercorn (eggshell finish).

* Ceiling and walls insulated with Roxul Safe'n'Sound to reduce sound transference.

* Projector: Epson 5030UB with Peerless PRG-UNV ceiling mount.

* Speakers: FL+FR - Mirage M460 (Vintage), C - Polk Audio CSi3, AL+AR - Micca M8C, RL+RR - Polk Audio OWM3, Subwoofer - Polk Audio PSW505 (decoupled from floor).

* Audio: Onkyo TX-NR555 7.2 receiver @ 5.2.2 for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.

* Bass Shakers: 4 x ADX Maximus w/ Dayton Audio SA230.

* Screen: 16x9 100" EluneVision Reference Studio 4K White Fixed-Frame Screen (1.0 gain) with 5" Black Velvet Border.

* Seating: Mocca leather reclining set with drop down table in sofa and console in loveseat.

* Nostalgia Electric 60" vintage popcorn maker with 8 oz kettle. Popcorn secret: Pop with ghee (clarified butter) and a small amount of Flavacol.

* Lighting: Philips Hue 10 x GU10 for ceiling and soffits, 2 x A19 for rear one-light tri-band wall sconces by Progress Lighting, all controlled via KODI (LibreElec 8.x) with specially programmed CinemaVision action files and sequences. Lights are programmed to automatically dim for movie trivia and dim further for trailers and personalized video theater intro, then fade to black for main feature. Pausing movie brings lights up, resuming movie fades them to black.

* Entrance: 34" x 78" 6-Panel Masonite Safe N' Sound door to help reduce sound transference.

* Movie posters are temporary holdovers from my old HT. I'll be replacing them with canvas posters or possibly a few nice displates.

* Portrait-mounted 40" LED HDTV w/ Z83-V Mini PC (Win10) running MoviePosterApp exclusively.

* Misc: McFarlane Toys Pop Culture Masterworks Alien 3D, Robocop 3D and The Godfather 3D Movie Posters.

Would I be out of line to propose that attached images be added as images to make them visible without having to click each link? Like so.

Update to the pictures in my last post.

The Avengers Rasterbated "poster" came down to make way for a pallet wall:



And the old Sony center speaker was replaced with a CV SL45C:
