Ok, one more post. I realized I didn't say much about the wiring I did.
Electrical: You can actually see the details of the electrical on the floorplan of the first post. I'm sure many will wonder why I put 10 potlights in after all the soundproofing I'm doing. Bottom line is that it was a WAF concession. I will be using a Lutron Grafikeye 3106 as follows:
Zone 1: back 6 potlights (i.e., back of the theater over the seats)
Zone 2: front 4 potlights
Zone 3: 6 wall sconces
Zone 4: Screen potlights (in soffit)
Zone 5: Soffit ropelight
Zone 6: probably a step light but not decided
I also put an outlet in for the PJ and another one on the ceiling at the front wall for future rope lighting. Both sides of the stage have an outlet for the sub(s)
Speakers: LCR on the screenwall are all bi-wired with 12 GA. from Big Orange. Sides and Back are single 12 GA. The speaker rough-ins on the front wall also house 2 CAT5E and 2 RG6 Each. The rough-in for the Right speaker has a Blue Jean Sub cable which is probably overkill given the RG6 up there, but what the hell.
Projector: HDMI and Component cables from Blue Jean. I also stuck 2 CAT5E's in there and, for good measure, a conduit that runs into the equipment room.
Family Room: I ran a 50' HDMI (again, Blue Jean), 3 RG6 and LCR speaker cable up to our family room (directly above the HT) for a Plasma above the fireplace. All the sources will be in the HT equipment rack and run from there. I also ran conduit to the family room for good measure.
The rest of our house was pre-wired when it was built. Almost every room has a "smart port" (2 RG6 / 2 CAT5E) and speaker wire in the ceiling running to a wall plate (i.e., light switch level) that also houses 2 CAT5E (I did the same in the rest of the basement rooms)
Yes, its a lot of wire folks (believe it or not, this is probably only half of it):
