We have most of the framing complete now with a 10ft opening behind the screen area



I the used green string to set out the screen which will be 130" to get a feel of the size from the seating position. It's hard to make it but it is there

What is the purpose of a dead vent and is it only for HVAC or AC as well?

Can't quite work out my surrounds r & l in a 7.2 config. Thinking that maybe in ceilings may be the best options aesthetically as,I don't really want to have them on show or on stands .....any suggestions ?

Any idea which speakers you want ? Model / brand or budget?

I know in Ft. Collins there are not much local dealers in the area , but head out to Boulder and check out Listen-Up. They seem to have decent prices for audio speakers / equipment from time to time. Best Buy off College is Magnolia so probably can start from there since it would be local.

Good luck
Thanks, but I was talking about the rear surrounds, I will be setting the left and right surrounds in my recessed cabinet I think.
I'm probably going to build my own speakers as per many peoples advice....I've sent you a pm as well

I totally misread that you did not want your speakers on stands or showing . Well looks like in-walls / ceiling would be best. Are you looking for a preferred brand / size / budget then?

* If you are planning to build you go an idea which brand drivers / size looking to go with?

I just saw your PM and your framing looks great! Let me know if you need any assistance on any of it. I'll also PM you when I get back from the office.

Good luck.

Shhhhhhhhh

It's likely Im going all in with SEOS diy's with Erich's advise, but still unsure about subs and rear surround placements.

Today we started to run cables through the home. Most media related cables will be terminating in the AV Rack that isn't framed yet. Got my speaker cable delivered (monoprice 12 awg) and my sub coax, as will as the HDMI from MediaBridge....both companies provide very reasonable prices


We are running 1.5" and 2.5" tubing for all cables so that they can be swapped out easier (hopefully)

I've decided on a Falcon AT Screen and with the advice of Rich I'm downsizing to a 120" 2.35:1. You can make out the scree in green string in this pic. The 130 just felt too big to make for comfortable viewing
