I especially liked the Dolby Atmos intro where they showed off the full 360 sound and other effects. I definitely will be doing this in my theater. Just prewiring for now and hiding in the ceiling, but adding 4 ceiling channels seems like a requirement now. :-)
That's the Atmos that we go to!!! Man, that intro is unbelievable! We need to setup a major DMV-AVS Atmos trip for the next blockbuster release! We can buy out a row or two in advance. Yes....add the Atmos channels. add them...Add them....ADD THEM!!!!!
HA! LACK OF PROGRESS? MY LIGHTSABER DENIES SUCH CLAIMS!

room, as well as the right and rear walls in the theater and we installed IB-3 clips and connected the walls themselves to each other. We had to put up extra blocking as well. We also analyzed what the plan is for the Soffit, as it cannot stay as it is toward the front of the room where the screen will go. We will re-build the front portion of the soffit.
Interestingly, my sump-pump decided to die yesterday in the middle of the workday, which is yet another expense. But hey--this is the way of the world.
I'm now realizing that I may have to make some cuts to my planned equipment. six subs, eight Triad Gold LCR's, amplification, high-end projector w/ 4k, 4k blu ray player when it's released......that's just equipment. I guess my decision is this: make cuts to get theater completion sooner? Or, take longer and make no cuts. The decision might seem easy, but it's not, as this theater build could potentially get in the way of us doing some other things that we want to do (i.e. trip to Austrailia next year), so this must be finished in a reasonable amount of time, before Mrs. Brolic has an epiphany: other money-pits reap benefits more quickly.

Install any more speakers/amps/speaker wire. I have too much difficulty handling audio temptation! Stop it!!
(OK. I will ONLY install 4 more!!!!)
LOL------welcome to the Atmos Side!!!! It's only four extra speakers....given all that you've done to your theater already, I'm sure it would be nothing to snag four coax speakers for your ceiling channels. You know you want to do it....you know....
