Blackhawk Down(stairs) Theater

I just "moved in" to my man cave. As I'm not a DIYer, I didn't post a full build thread. However, I did design the space and let my contractor exceed my expectations. Since I have gleaned much knowledge from many of you on this forum, I thought I'd post the results:

Before:



After:






Equipment List:
Triad InRoom Gold LCR (3)
Triad InRoom Silver OminSub (2)
Triad InWall Silver/4 Surround (2)
Triad InCeiling Silver/8 Omni SE (2)
Parasound Halo A31

How are you liking those Octane Bolts? Did you get Bonded or Top Grain?

I got the Top Grain. I really like them so far. They are quite comfortable.

My main seat (of the 4 total) gets 90% of the use, so I'm slightly concerned with uneven wear. I think I may swap my first and second rows every 9 months - 1 year to try and slow that process.

Cool room. Very different color scheme. Nice Triad setup too! If you decide to add acoustic panels (first reflections, etc) take a look at ATS Acoustics. You can probably do the custom print panels using your Blackhawk color scheme.

I probably need to update the pictures. I've added acoustic panels (from Audimute) to treat the first reflections, bass traps in the corners behind the screen, and a large Indian Head logo on the wall back by the bar.
