I pretty much finished my HT /multipurpose room. After 3 attempts - I finally have the sound (namely the low frequency) containment at an acceptable point and don't want to lose that - however I want/need to ventilate it. See (front , back and layout) pics below -
(a1) Where should I put the vents?
Room is about 22' (front to back) x12' (side to side) x 6.5' tall. I have about 15" of space between the desk and adj. wall (this space is pretty much in the center of the room's width)- perhaps I can build a dead vent there.
The other side of that wall is the equip room, which leads into the HT hallway (see pic)
In the front, I have a soffit where I keep the projector screen - it's about 11" high, behind that front wall is the wood frame and then the concrete slab (so nowhere to exchange air with) - however behind the door shown on the left is a closet which opens to the main part of the basement. Being that the screen is AT - can I put the vent behind it- so that it's opposite the vent in the back of the room?
(a2) Which outside areas should I exchange air with
- (see layout pic below)
(b) What should I buy?-
I see the Fantech FX6XL and FG6XL fans mentioned, however being that the dates they were mentioned are old - I'll ask - is there a newer model which is more recommended (more energy efficient? quieter?). What about this one(http://www.amazon.com/VenTech-IF6CF6...ds=392+cfm+fan
) - seems to have good reviews, and people say it's whisper quiet
(c) side Q
- how large does a hole need to be to allow Low Frequency to escape - I ask b/c in the front space mentioned (between desk and adj wall) - I currently have two 2"x4" openings (for cabling) which I have not (yet?) put putty backing - and nevertheless I don't notice any LFE rumblings upstairs.
THANKS! any help is appreciated (and hopefully Q's (b) and (c) will help others with the same Q's)
