Columns certainly have their merits, but for me the major reason for having them was just a place to put speakers and cables. I like them, don't get me wrong, but it's not a make or break sort of thing for me. I don't recall having been in a commercial theater with columns, so I don't really associate columns directly with home theaters.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

I guess I don't see the difference in ripping them out now, or on revision 2.0 remodel when (and IF) you ever decide you need to move speaker locations.

It seems kind of silly to pay for a pro layout, have it re-worked with Nyal (paying again) and then worry about moving speaker locations. Realistically why would you need to move speaker locations? And now much difference would that ever make compared to the professional design layout you have now ? I don't see the point.

The effort to remove the columns and do new fabric frames in the future would be as much effort as it is now to tear them out.


I'd just live with what you got. It seems rather silly to change things now. Your speaker placement seems perfectly fine, I am having a hard time imagining what you would change and why.

JPA Might as well install a water closet too...........entertaining watching money flushed down drain.

I've heard it before in my own room.......have to lower surround speakers to separate overheads and side surrounds for Atmos. What the heck?

Five feet or more in height separation is plenty.........at least that is what my little Dolby birdie suggests.

Fairly new the forums here but saw your thread and ran through the entire thing tonight. Wow its been 3 years and 5 months since your first post on this project. I dont think I could wait that long if I was building but I does seem like a really fun project that you have here. I look forward to seeing it completed.

Nice! I see a consensus developing here. Just to clarify, using fabric panel walls would make it so I can change everything whenever I like without doing a major remodel. Just pull down the panels, move the speakers/treatments, and put the panels back up. I still think it would be easier to do now because of the amount of finishing still left to do, and a remodel after the carpet, furniture, electronics, final paint and trim are in will be more difficult if for no other reason than the mess.

There is enough disagreement regarding speaker locations that I wouldn't be surprised if the standards change over time.

Wow, three years. That's hard to get my head around. I guess it doesn't feel that bad to me because I started planning this along the time Sandman was really getting going. So this has been a near ten year project for me.

The takeaway here is moar cutting, less worrying and changing stuff. Just do it.

Anyone use the Festool TS55 REQ Track Saw?

This was the one that finally got me. I have a feeling it will be my favorite tool.
