Instructions of building a false wall for AT screen?

This will be the 1st of many questions here. I'm finally moving into a house where I can customize the basement to my liking, creating an insane theater room that I've always dreamt of(we've been renters until now). I've gone full audiophile and bought a pair of Klipsch KPT-904's, cinema grade speakers, and they only really work behind an AT screen, as I'll need another one for a center channel.

So I'd like to build a false wall. I can frame one easy enough(I have some experience there), just wondering if I should do drywall, cutting holes where the speakers will be, or stretching speaker grill cloth across the entire frame I build. I kind of like the latter idea, just worries me how big a pain it will be should I need to get at the speakers. Not to mention the headache of stretching it all to look smooth.


The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Use a total fabric wall. You make frames and pull and staple fabric, not really that hard.
