Which speakers are you referring to? I am not using the little Genelec speakers I have for my new theater room, I think I will be going with Episode speakers, which require amps...

The second layer of drywall is on the floor, and the MLV is on the wall....

Looks like the fun is about to begin!
I'm envious of all that garage space, that'll be a nice addition.

Man time flies, I have been slow with the updates, work and construction has been keeping me very busy. Made a change to have the steps outside the theater, then it wouldn't interfere with the seating bar at the back. Photo of outside the theater where a row of cabinets with sink, fridge, dishwasher drawer will go.

The microlam lvls in the picture will be going up from wall to wall to hold up all the suspended woodwork that will be going in.

Here are a few photos....

I must apologize for the complete lack of updates on my theater build. With the kids getting out of school, work got busy, and a vacation in the mix also, man how time flies. Currently, we are waiting on the woodwork to be completed and installed, and then we can get carpets and such installed. I almost have all the equipment that will be going in, I have ordered the amp, and it is on its way, and then I will be ordering the Dual SVS PB-13 Ultra subs. Here are some pictures of what has been going on:

This is a picture of the complete garage below the theater, just getting ready to get the floor epoxied. I am doing this myself, and recommend it to anyone. Cost of paying someone else is in the several thousand, and cost of doing it yourself is about $400-500.



Here is a shot of the completed exterior of the home/



Here is the sconces that I will be using in the theater, they will be attached to the wood columns that will be installed.




Got the screen here, a stewart studiotek 130 G3



Here are the speakers that will be going on, Episode 900 series speakers. There is 3 of the taller one, for CLR, and then 6 of the shorter ones for Surrounds.



Here is the projector, a Runco VX-11d, with its cinewide lens, and autoscoping sled, and its external video processor.







Here is the outside of the theater, were a wet bar will be installed



Here is some of the woodwork they dropped off this morning, I do believe they will be installing everything next weekend



Photos from the front and back of the theater.






Already got the Integra DHC 80.3 here (no photo), and the Outlaw 7900 Amp is on its way now. I am really excited to finally see this thing come together....

Sounds good. Thanks. The exterior looks awesome. They did a great job blending in the addition.

Thanks. That was one of our biggest concerns, we wanted it to blend perfectly with the rest of the house, and not look like it was an addition, but rather built with the original house.

Maybe someone can help me out, I am trying to post some pictures, but it seems with the website change, I can't seem to figure out how to add pictures to my posts, any ideas? I push the picture icon and it asks for a URL before it would allow me to upload them, what am I missing?

My Start To Finish Robins Theater - REBUILD Start 11/2013

Thanks for that, I got it now, kinda seems like that is a step backwards from what it was, but oh well.....



Here is a shot of the garage floor after I epoxied it, the brand of epoxy is rust oleum.







I ordered new posters. I think I was one of the first to order from spoonflower about 4 years ago, and there print quality as increased tremendously. The iron man is the original and the monsters is the new one..

Here is a shot of all the wood work that has been delivered so far...

Great job on the garage floor! Did you end up buying the epoxy from Jones?

Yes, I got it from Jones. It is really easy to do, but man is it messy. I got it everywhere on myself. Started installing the wood work today, here are some shots of it:

Spent the afternoon on Sunday rebuilding my rack in preparation for the theater to be done, so I tore it all down:



Then rebuilt it, adding in the Integra dhc-80.3, the outlaw 7900 Amp, and the Runco DHD4 controller:

Looks good. People who haven't done that before don't realize how much work it is! If you got it done in one afternoon (including breakdown, reassembly and all interconnects) that's pretty quick!

Yes, it is very time consuming. I started at about noon, and finished at about 12:30 at night, so it took about 12 hours. It's a lot of time spent on your knees, and my knee was certainly feeling the pain yesterday.

That is an awful lot of work for sure. It looks like you have 3 Integra's on your rack. Is that right? Care to share what duties go to each component? Or point me to another post if I missed it earlier in your thread. By the way, that room looks great.

Oh yes, if you look back in the closet, on the floor, there is a 32tb server that holds all the media. On the back side of the rack that you can't see is a 24 port network switch, and a 4x4 hdmi switch. The top two devices in the rack are two XBMC computers, so you can play two different Tv Shows/Movies at a time on different TV's. Next one down is just a Directv Sat box. Then the Wii, PS3, and Ps4 gaming systems. It actually works out great, because that closet is basically in the middle of our house, and we have two TV's downstairs (family, bedroom), and two upstairs (family, theater), and the controllers will work on any TV, only bad thing is, you have to get up and go to the closet to change games, but hey, thats what kids are for right. Then the 4 receivers run each of the TV's, bedroom, two family rooms, and the theater, and the DHD4 controller that runs the VX-11d projector going in the theater. The very bottom is the Outlaw Amp that weighs 150lbs holding the rack in place. It was very difficult getting that thing in the rack by myself. I had to slide it across the floor, and lift just one end at a time. I don't know many people that can dead lift a 150lb square box....

Screen wall is about complete, took the picture with a real camera, as I don't think my cell phone was doing the work any justice...
