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.

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

Here is another update....gotthe 2.5" tubing run to the projector point


All the cables running back to the AV rack, we have used 1" & 2.5" tubing to make life easier for any futile cable updates (hopefully)

Here is a shot of the tubing running to the area behind the screen where hopefully I will have three 1099's and two stonehenge subs


....going to have to DD + GG the rear walls to help alleviate sound leakage through to the rooms that back on to it, luckily it's just a walk-in closet and a pantry

I've been researching the Oppo which seems to be the unit everyone raves about, just that in the past I've not noticed that much difference between the players I have demo'd

Congrats on the Pioneer and screen.

The last pioneer A/V receiver that I owned was the SC-25 (while back).

Do you plan to use dedicated amps or are you planning to push your all your speakers with that pioneer?

Think I'm going to go through the Pioneer but will run the two DIY subs through tan iNuke 6000 which seems to be the general consensus.

Sweet. If you do get the inuke make sure to get the dsp version. I own an inuke 1000 dsp which I wired my dual 2 ohm 18" SI to 4 ohm and bridged my inuke (basically 1000 watts, but I think I could crave for more watts). You'll be happy with it once you work out the tweaks on the dsp and the 3000 iNuke is a better buy.

We are remodeling the entire house, so the HT is only a small part of the works going on here. We are using my wife's uncle as he is the most honest and fair priced contractor I have ever come across, pm if you want an intro as he is available once he finishes this project....

I kind of wish I got the 3000 over the 1000, but @ the time it was budget I was working with. (sorry for crummy pic) but a few 18"s in your room, you'll be rocking the Rockies :P

My tech equipment is slowly building up my screen has arrived from Rich at Flacon Screens and I also got the masking panels as most use will be 16:9. My 3 front speakers the elusive 1099's are en route.....I also did a little retail therapy today and purchased a Sony X850B 4K TV for the family room along with a Sony BDP-S6200 Blu Ray player (should keep the wife happy, and me)

Can anyone recommend a good network switch that I can rack mount?
