So I bought a new house and decided to put make a room into a dedicated HT. The room itself was not a perfect box shape so I had to work with it. I also had a budget and am not good at doing things myself. I used this forum and a few others to guide what I would purchase as well. Let me know how you think I did!
Projector : Epson 8350
Projector Screen : Grand View Motorized 92 Inch 1.0 Gain (white)
Receiver : Pioneer Elite VSX - 42
Center Speaker - Polk Audio Scc
Surround Sound - SCi Series SC60 in Ceiling
Sub Woofer - Polk 10 inch sub. PSW108
All four of my windows will be boxed in with a special type of board and made to where I can hang movie posters on them. All the walls will also be painted a very dark brown (including the ceiling). The carpet is beige. So there should be no ambient light getting into the room. I plan on upgrading the speakers in about five years to ones that are not in the wall (I will just leave them in the wall not hooked up). I will be about 200 inches or so from the screen when I sit down. Eventually when everything is finished I will post pics!
