We are in the process of creating a media room in our beach house.  The house is about 30 yards from the ocean and the theater would be on the bottom floor.  We are wanting to keep it simple because media equipment and the ocean don't go well together.  I am concerned that putting in a projector and all of the sound equipment will be too vulnerable to the moisture from the ocean.  Would appreciate any thoughts/recommendations about how to pull this off.

We lived on the beach in Hawaii and always had the windows open during the day to take advantage of the trade winds. When we left 4 years later nothing electronic seemed to be damaged. My outdoor grill was trashed but my 50" plasma tv just inside the sliding glass door was functioning fine.

YMMV OF COURSE!

I wouldnt let the ocean stop you but I wouldnt go overboard when buying a PJ. none of our computers were damaged by the salt air but the cooling fan sucking in that air on a PJ would give me puase before spending money on an ultra high end PJ.
