Hey all,
So I've been under water trying to read all the threads on this site that are relevant to what I want to do. I'm going to lay out my room with absolutely no work done to it. This is how the home was bought. The space pictured is what will be the HT room. it is not a dedicated room but rather an area of the basement. I will be asking for advice on acoustic treatments for the walls as well.

View of HT straight on (the blue tape on the front wall shows the stage that will be built)

Right Wall (cabinets will be built within the blue tape along entire wall)
2013-08-17211204_zps9259aefd.jpg

Left Wall (This wall will be covered with curtains like a movie theater) I think I want to install some paneling or some other material on top of the concrete and drywall which will be covered by the curtains.

Looking forward to updating this thread slowly but surely!

Room dimensions are 18.8' by 18.8'

OK. We now have the design approved for the right side of the room. The closed cabinets will be for general storage and the shelving on the left will be for my audio gear. Power will be installed behind the shelves on the left. In the middle there will be half cabinets with a surface for a popcorn maker, power outlets, and a space on the wall for the Klipsch R3800 II in wall speaker (right surround) Here's the layout:


Now I need to figure out how I'm going to treat the opposite side. My plan is to stretch curtains in panel sections and make it look like a theater. This will allow me to hide that concrete without having to do a major contstruction project to hide it. Cutouts will be made in the curtains for my left surround and for 4 lighting sconces. My question is what kind of material should I get to put on the concrete and the drywall to act as acoustic absorbing material underneath the curtains?



Thoughts?

Got the stage finished. Took about a day and a half and it was backbreaking. My design pretty much mimicked JudsonP's found here. Also thanks to BIGmountinDC for the advice on building via PM.

Framing the main stage


stage is roughly 18' wide


Constructing the front curve. This is version 1, the masonite was later replaced with 1/4" plywood


Curve attached to main stage, and 2300lb of sand


1st layer of OSB


Dry fitting 2nd layer of OSB with 1.5" lip. Also the curve face has been replaced with 1/4" plywood. Much happier with the plywood.


Green Glue in between the 2 layers of OSB


Completed stage

Joe,

Yours is the second new thread I've seen that has two posts that say Reserved?

Am I missing something?

I live in Greenwood and I'm just at the end of my theater build. It's been fun, but also a lot of work.

Have fun.

Reserved for later posting information - it's a way to have a lot of your theater information at the beginning. Just like reserving a seat smile.gif

Am I missing something?? Why have the walls not been built before the stage was constructed?

There will be custom cabinets built over the right side and the stage will be integrated into the build (see design above). On the other side, the concrete and drywall will be covered with OC703 and we'll cover the entire wall with pleated fabric from top to bottom with another layer of fabric as a design/layering element. This is a cost effective way of covering up that wall with the exposed foundation and doing some AT at the same time.

Hi Joe! Can you elaborate on your center speaker shelf? How was it made and will it be floating somehow on your stage? Your build is looking really good. Keep posting pics.

Hey @69glamboy The shelf is custom made to my exact dimensions. It comes in 2 pieces, the smaller piece get's drilled into the wall into studs and the other piece of the shelf has holes drilled out to allow it to slide into the anchor piece. It's actually a very simple design. It didn't cost very much either. I paid around 60 for it. The maker sells the shelves on Etsy. He also assured me the shelf would support the 30lb speaker.

The shelf will attach to the black wall and the fact that it is "suspended" without supports is what makes it "floating"
