Greetings from Upstate NY
i have had a dedicated Home Theater ( Manny Theater) since 2000. But now it is 2013 and I am building a house with a dedicated Home Theater right next to Kitchen /Family Room area.
The room is 20' 9" x 15'9" and 10 ' ceilings. The walls are staggered 2 x 4 and insulated , i will be using double 5/8 gypsum with green glue.
The Theater plan shows the millwork screen enclosure and 2 columns on each wall with sconce lights.
The 2' x 1' soffit is being constructed to include LED recessed and projector. This would give me opportunity to light the center tray ceiling with DMX rgb led lights. Back end will be a 6' wide x 7" high riser , which will have 5 Palliser motorized Playback Seats in curved formation and Front row will be 4 Palliser motorized PLayback seats in curved formation.
With the insulated staggered walls with double sheet rock will give me STC rating of 55-60. ,I am having hardwood floor but will have rugs on the floor, WHAT can i use to damp sound and vibration from the floor to the basement.
Has anyone used Serenity mats as subflooring or any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Sunfire Cinema Grand and Sunfire Signature Amps
Vonschweikert VR4 with Tower of Power subs
Paradigm Reference SA ADP as sides and rear speakers
Sides would be boxed into the side columns
