Queue,

Awesome theater. I'm looking at doing something similar (lots of trim carpentry). I'm curious, how deep is the coffered ceiling (i.e. the distance from the lowest point on the ceiling to the highest)? 6 inches, 8 inches? I really want to do a coffered ceiling, but I'm a little worried that the drop from my 9' ceiling will make the room feel small compared to the rest of the house.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Speaking of which, does anyone know how to make subtitles appear only on the picture are of a screen when using 2.35:1? In movies like 2012, when I use 2.35:1 anamorphic lens, it cuts off any subtitles that are in the black area of the screen. Is there any kind of fix for this???

get the oppo 83 bluray player. it will shift the subtitles into your screen area. i don't know of any other way to do it shy of using an htpc.

The coffered ceiling is more likely to provide the perception of a higher ceiling.

The coffers are part and parcel of the sound isolation strategy for this space. Note the lighting is in the coffers and not penetrating the drywall.

Good to know! I have one, and perhaps I will try to switch it in at some point. That the Denon doesn't do this is a crime at its price point.

Sorry I haven't been active much; I've had lots of PhD program stuff going on...

The coffers look phenomenal. I can't recommend them enough. They add a level of beauty to the room that you simply don't get with just molding. Yet, they aren't overwrought, gaudy, or ostentatious. Dennis and his crew did an incredible job with the entire room. I couldn't be happier.

I have a funny story actually. At the beginning of the summer my water flood alarm went off. We buried the flood alarm behind one of the walls where the septic pipe and water filtration pipes were hidden. It turned out that they soundproofed, rubber-matted, and sealed the room so well, that the water went around the room and didn't affect the home theater at all! I had to replace the carpet on three sides of the home theater but when we opened up a spot to look under the stage of the theater itself, it was completely dry. The water was channelled around the room and didn't go under or into it.

I called the crew who worked on my room to tell them, because I was so impressed by how well they did in building the room. Not only is the room well-sealed acoustically, but it is practically waterproof!

Cuke - How are you getting behind your gear in that closet when needed? Those racks on casters? My equipment room is about the same size and was thinking a SLIM 5 rack on casters should do it.

Mourning the disappearance of the -ly suffix. Words being cut-off before they've had a chance to fully form, left incomplete, with their shoelaces untied and their zippers undone. If I quote your post (or post in your thread) without comment, please check your zipper.

I've been very very busy! Room looks great still. Kids love it!

I do need to contact someone about changing out some components and getting a Crestron reprogramming for the new gear. I have a PS4 and Xbox One added on, but no Crestron programming for them so I use their remotes. I also wouldn't mind fixing some kinks in the system and having the whole sound portion of the system calibrations checked since it has been running for four years now. I imagine those things should be checked every so often?
