Well it's been awhile now but I have made some progress.
I had to finish the other room 1st.
Now I'll be concentrating on finishing the HT room.
This is my reworked duct
Insulation and whisper clips with Hat channel installed
Vapor barrier installed.
Whisper clips and hat channel installed on ceiling with speaker wiring
Rear of room now with DD and GG with soffit and puck lights installed.
Front of room now with DD and GG with soffit and puck lights installed.
Puck lights installed
Both Vents (1 out and 1 return) are backer boxed with sonopan filled
Now I have been watching scenes of all kind of movies for the past 2 weeks (
I've already put 25 hours on my brand new JVC RS45 projector)
I now boxed it up and put my old projector in it's place...
I'm abit lost here and have hit a wall.
I do not know how far to make my 1st row of seats.
My room is now 14' wide X 16'10" Long. My height to the bottom of the soffit is 6'11"
I have no choice to do the riser with 2x6 and 2 layers of OSB 7/16 with GG.
As you can see from the picture above (where the black chair is) it is now at 11 feet from the screen wall. My screen is 108" across. I would like the 2nd row to enjoy the movie and sound experience too BUT do not want the 1st row to suffer.
So, my question is...is it ok to have the 1st row at 11ft?
Would this be too close?
My wife and I have watched a couple of scenes at 11ft and it seems ok.
What do you think?
thanks in advance
Lots left to do
Riser, Stage, side colums, acoustic panels painting, carpeting, etc....
