Hey Jimmy,

DIY on the acoustic layout. I put enough hours in studying this forum to know 85% what needed to be done. I traded a few e-mails with Brian Pape at http://www.gikacoustics.com/ for some thoughts too. He is awesome....I didn't end up buying anything from them but their site and his posts on home theater shack were very helpful. I also read just about everything Ethan Winer published too.

I like a room with a bit of acoustic "control" vs an overly loose sound, so it's an absorption focused plan. If I had a bit more room depth to play with I would have incorporated more diffusion.

I planed and had the fabric frames built so I could do some tweaking on acoustics after it was done....but it turned out just as I hoped. smile.gif


You are right, 2" OC703 glued to the wall and then covered with fabric frames. Here is a bit more detail in this post:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1465533/like-a-boss-theater-build/30#post_24052874

The columns are 8" from the wall. (14" wide) We debated on the depth of the columns for a bit. I mocked up several as I wanted depth but didn't want to block too much of the access to the stairs. The 8" x 14" turned out to be a good compromise.

Thanks

We like the chairs...and the trays are awesome! They are not quite as "stout" as larger chairs as there is a bit of "wiggle" to the arms. But you can't beat the width of them.

Two rows will be fine for you. Just know that he last row is so close to the back wall that the bass is too boomy when sitting there for action movies. Front row is our money seat for blu-ray and even DVD movies. But we move to the back row for HDTV. (just too compressed) Most of the TV programming we watch lacks heavy LFE so it works for us.

I'm not sure what you are showing here?
Is the Screen Door Effect of the Epson LCD visible from your seating distance? You chose the EluneVision AudioWeave 4k over Centerstage XD to eliminate visible weave. Surely that isn't impacting the image...which looks fabulous by the way.

I almost missed the completion of your theater. Nice contrasting color choices and a great classic look.

Ya sorry that was a confusing post. I should have just said, here are some screen shots. smile.gif

The SDE is not visible 99% of the time especially with bluray. In bright light monotone, especially all white, scenes I can see it a bit. Every once in a while I'll take a close look to see if I'm noticing SDE or weave...it's the SDE. My wife claims she can't see it.

Yowza!
Yup, I don't know how people watch scope movies on a 16:9 screen.
These two shots you posted say it all.

Great looking room!!! Your dimensions are pretty similar to mine but I didn't see posted anywhere the height of your ceiling, I was just curious how tall it is so I can compare with different design ideas I'm contemplating?

Thanks!

My ceiling is 12' at max. The soffit is at about 9' 10"

Hope that helps

Thanks! And it does help.
My room is 22x24 (pre construction) but I only have a 10ft ceiling.
So I'll probably steal some design ideas from you if ya don't mind and I'm sure I'll be back for plenty more questions once the construction begins smile.gif
