Hi all, I recently moved into my dream home and it didn't take more than a month for me to convince the wife to let me take over one of the basement halves. The room is narrow (11.5 feet wide) but it's fairly long (26 feet).
The previous owners used it as a rec room, and it has a sliding glass door to the outside, a small utility closet, a cedar closet for storing clothes etc., and floor-ceiling mirrors (three 5'x8' solid panels) on one wall. On the opposite wall there are weird stickers that look like iPod dancers. I asked her if I could do anything I wanted to the room, and she said yes
so I'm off to the races on turning this into the best theater that my imagination and the space constraints will allow!
Here is the room as it was when we moved in. I'm planning some major changes! I don't have the ability to take off much time from work, so I've hired a contractor to come and do some electrical work in the walls. I know the least about that, and it will save me a lot of time.
The equipment that I already have:
Epson 8350 projector
Denon 4311 receiver
Denon 2500BTCI blu-ray
PS4, Apple TV, etc.
Beta 50 floor speakers
Beta C250 center
Beta ES250 bi/dipole (4 total)
Beta SW12 12" subwoofer
Crappy JBL height channel speakers
Less crappy JBL 8" ceiling speakers (I will matrix these with the height-channels)
