I have been into home theater for a lil over a decade but never had the oppurtunity to have a dedicated theater room.
Most of the epuipment will be entry level so I really think the design is going to play the biggest role.
amd liano powered in an htpc case. pretty generic, running xbmc. I also have a server with all my music and movies etc.
avr: pioneer vsx 1022
front channels: pioneer fs51
center: pioneer cs21
surrounds: pioneer bs41
sub: acoustech pl200
projector: JVC DLA-X30
Here is the demensions of the room and a short description of each wall. The cieling is 8ft.and unfinished and the
floor is concrete.
A is a exterior wall and has two inches of foam already. it is called insulfoam http://www.insulfoam.com/
B is also an exterior wall with 2 inches of foam.
C connects to a storage room. no sheet rock hung thats not a door its a lil closest. tight fit but
i think it will fit all the equipment
D there is no wall built yet. That is as far left as the the door can go because of a closet
in a small bedroom connects there.
My plan is for a screen on wall A anywhere from 90-120 inches wide. I am shooting for a 10 ft. seating distance
and the seating will be a pit style couch. 2x4 2 inch thick sound absorption panels at the first reflection point
and a couple 2x4 4 in. thick absorption panels on the rear wall. Bass traps floor to cieling in the corners of the rear
wall and a 2x4 2in thick absorpion panel (or dshould I go with a diffuser?) on the cieling at the first reflection point as well.
The projector I wanted to build its own housing in the storage room
behing wall C. Any input about lighting would be great. Also other concerns I have are the foam on the walls,
should I get more foam for the other walls?
this shows the walls with foam
