I have been a long time lurker and finally registered to the forum. But first I do want to say I appreciate everyone's builds and inputs, the information on here has been of great value to me for my build. My father in law and myself knocked out this build in about 6 weeks. I was pulling 30 hours of work in this room on the weekends. It was to the point my nieghbors and firends where asking if I left the theater today.
I am not sure if I would call this cheap, but I went the inexpensive route of my build. ( Equipment, sound proofing , ect...)
I guess to the details and the room.
Room Size : 19x16
7.2 Set up
AVR - Denon 4311ci
AMP - Emotiva XPA-3
BDP - Sony S769
Polk Rti A9's
Polk F/XiA6 x 4
Polk DSWmicroPro2000 x2
21 ATacustic Panels. ( still trying to figure out where to put the bass traps)
Elite Screens 115" Cinema ( 2.35:1)
Sorry for the iphone pics. I need to break out my DSLR, but have been too busy with the finishing touches.
Well here is the build in a quick shoot.
RCL, and Subs arrive. ( that was fun opening double boxed packages)
My Sitting room off my bed room was a perfect place for testing out the system. ( which my wife didn't approve of)
Projector Arrived at work, dang this thing is heavy
Took my son furniture shopping to find the best couch for the theater. I went back and forth on this layout for a week. Theater seating vs. lounge style. I think we found a winner. Ordered the ottoman in the matching fabric to make a big bed.
AMP showed up, yes I had to hook it up.
Sent my wife to look at carpets, I was out on this.
Yea, more sanding
Honey, pick whatever color you want. As long as it's grey and brown
I'm tired of looking at swatches let's paint
Couched showed up, my wife is pissed that my theater is taking over the dining room. ( even though I've eaten twice in there)
Started the primer ( killz )
First Coat of Paint... things are moving now.
My LED poster showed up!
Started on the molding...Damn how did I measure that short.
Gives you a better idea on the color. I also left the molding off the ceiling to put rope lighting in.
The LED rope lighting showed up, damn that's bright. I will need a dimmer switch for that!
Iron Man 3 poster showed up, I guess I will need to tape the poster up? It keeps coming down about 1/8th of inch leaving light shining through at the top
Started putting the frame together ( Elite Screen 115" 2:35.1)
Started on the faux 3 piece molding.
Finally received the black outlet for the ceiling
Acoustical Panels showed up. 467lbs.
Installed the rope lighting. Wow! That's all I can say.
My son asking " can we watch wreck it ralph"
Carpet went in, now the fun begins.
Now my back hurts after carrying that massive 144 inch couch
Installed some surrounds, leveled them out. Can't wait.
Started on wiring, and installing the front stage.
Ran Audyssey to see if everything is working properly
Now on to the projector
Well, this isn't much fun, but almost completed.
No wrinkles, looking good.
NOM NOM NOM
I can't believe some of you made your own panels, Kudos' too you all. I am already tired from measuring and hanging these things.
Not sure what this means...but okay
Well, I need to break out the DSLR, but I hope that will be suffice for now.
Sorry if this thread was too quick. I was busy building.
