I have really enjoyed seeing other people post their home theater builds and watching their progress, so I thought I would share mine.
Unlike some of the people on here, I do not have lots of money to throw at a home theater. So I would consider mine a "Budget build". To save money, I did 95% of the work myself. Also during the last few months purchased most of the audio/video equipment off either ebay or Craigslist. My home theater is small, the room size is 12' Wide x 14' Deep. Here is my current equipment list:
Optoma HD25E projector
Pioneer Elite VSX92-THX
Samsung BD-F5900 3D Wi-Fi Blu-ray Disc Player
Monster Power Reference Power Center HTS 1600
Martin Logan Montage - Front Mains
Martin Logan Fresco I - Center channel
Martin Logan Vignette - Surrounds
Martin Logan Depth I subwoofer
Screen - DIY using Carl's Blackout Cloth
HDMI & RCA Cables- Mediabridge Ultra Series
Now, before you point out that for a budget home theater I am using $6000 in speakers, I found all of them on Craigslist and got them for an incredible deal. This also goes for the Pioneer Elite Receiver, which may not stay due to the fact it only has 3 HDMI connections and they cannot pass a 3D signal.
The attached images are my attempt to layout the theater in Sketchup to help give an idea of what I am attempting to accomplish.
