See, I think you need different seats, more befitting of your theme...

Very Nice. I think you may have convinced me of what I have been pondering. Adding the angle to the other side of the room really cleans it up. Now I know what I need to do. Thanks for sharing.

The proposed end result looks awesome! Are you more into audio than video? Will you need a dedicated amp for the LCR? The 100's are some big boys Keep posting pics of the progress

Seriously? 75 seats in a home theater? I'm all for going big, but that seems silly...

Kind of funny, but since you posted this I upgraded my fronts to studio 100's too, I was asking about the amp because I was going to copy yours But ended up just choosing an MCA50. It may not be enough power to fully drive my front 100's as LCR, but it should do for now until I have my next round of upgraditus and get a stronger 3 channel amp for the fronts. We have pretty similar systems, you'll love it!!

Looking forward to your build! 1 because the space has serious potential and 2 because I am a Nissan guy myself!

We've seen some big theaters around here, but nothing like that in a residence, so take the pics and then ask later!

Those seats look a lot like the ones pictured in an ad I saw today. You might want to email the seller and ask him the brand.

Here's the ad: http://charlotte.craigslist.org/fuo/1092261514.html

I second that! Looks like one nice setup. I'm sure made only better with the seats though.

On those chairs, how about these, real theater chairs but a little car seat flair:



the people at seatsandchairs.com might have a source for the chair you seek.
