Howdy folks...lots of info here that it is quite overwhelming. I am a relative noob to construction and accoustics. I am building a dedicated HT in the basement (16'x9'x8').
I have an SVS 12" sub and a basic 5.1 setup with mid level Onkyo AVR. The room will be in the corner of the basement (under my kitchen and laundry room) with the walls along the front and side. Two walls (right and rear) will be standard 2x4 framed.
I was going to go berber carpet, standard drywall and drop ceiling. I don't have an unlimited budget but any minor suggestions to help trap bass or sound in the room? Right now, the outer walls are framed and that is about it.
Looking for basic thoughts around: Ceiling tile selection, anything to add behind the drywall?, etc.
THANKS in advance for any tips. I have been looking around the forums and it is hard to come to a consensus for some easy basic do's and don'ts.
