Im new here in the AVS forums but I've been viewing the DIY home theaters in the forums. Seeing all those awesome home theaters made us want to convert our family room into one too
Our old family room is pretty much due for a renovation. The teared up carpet, moldy couch, cracked walls made it very uninviting to say the least
I'd like to share the new designs for our home theater and any feedback would be great! Seeing as how this is the first time we delve into the exciting world of home theaters, i find myself scratching my head a lot and worry i might wake up to find myself bald from scratching all my hair off!
So here are the design and plans for our theater rooom:
I saw this image on the net and loved the idea of it as a pattern and acoustic treatment at the same time:
So I was thinking of rigid fiberglass board cut in hexagonal shapes then wrapped in fabric and mounted on the wall.
Our current room has gypsum walls but there are no acoustic treatment put in between the walls. Are acoustic panels enough for the room? I would rather avoid having to redo all the walls if i could to save costs.
I was also thinking if i should add acoustic boards to the ceiling to help with absorption.
I really am clueless with acoustics and id really appreciate any help or suggestions.
