The inlaws purchased a house about a mile away from us and said.We can't ever go back to a regular tv after seeing what you have in your basement
So they cut me a check and said, "build us a home theater!" And here I am and this is what I am presented with.
The room is basically 10x27x9' with the front part of the room being about 12' wide and running that width for 9'.
and here is what I am planningEquipment
Econowave SR's as LCRS
Econowave mini S8's as surrounds
136" Seymour AT screen
the seating setup is going to be 2 wide and three rows deep, I figured that is the maximum amount of people I fit with a 10' wide room. For the screen I wanted to go as big as possible so I was going to run it out to the width of the room but I have a feeling this is too big. Going to use dd and quiet clips for the ceiling and dd for the sides and use a staggered stud configuration where we will need to put a wall in. I figured I would also build an additonal wall behind the speakers since that is a bedroom rite behind it, but I am also curious if there is any advantage to this. I am going to plug that rear window also.
One big issue though is that the HVAC runs directly above the theater in the joists and can't be moved. The HVAC is mounted so that it touches the joists by way of screws and brackets. Is there any utility that I can use to decouple the HVAC from the joists?
Here is what I hope it will look like in the end
