Hi guys, I’m new here, but like many I’ve been lurking for several months and I’m totally blown away by all the amazing home theaters that everyone has built.
So I’m in the beginning process of building a new house and the wife has graciously given me my own space in the basement for a dedicated home theater (with some compromises of course).
In the process of planning things out, I had a couple of questions for the experts here. The room size is approximately 13’9” by 19’ 0” with standard 8’ ceilings. I’d love to have a 135” screen for the room, so the first question is would it be better to put the screen on the 13’9” wall or the 19’ wall. I’m planning on going with the Epson 3020 projector. Also, my wife hates home theater recliners and wants a sectional in the room for family movie nights with the kids (the compromise).
Second question, I already have Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000’s for Left and Right, a ProCenter 1000, 4 ProMonitor 800’s for the surrounds, and a ProSub 1000 in an existing setup and was wondering if these would be decent for a room this size or if I should go with in-wall speakers. Was looking at the Mono Price in wall speakers as they have had good reviews and are reasonably priced.
And finally, any advice you could give me on building a dedicated home theater in a new construction would be greatly appreciated.
