The screen needs to be redone but I haven't had time to do it yet. My HT is very inexpensive so it's not quite like some of the others but you can only do so much with limited funds.

Well since it does not have to be a dedicated room I will show mine. Screen is a Da-lite Model C 120"x120" Matte White that I got for free so it is the best screen in the world hehe. Here it is before room construction:



and here it is after:





I have an AX-100 and Prismasonic anamorphic H-700M so a true 2.35 screen is in my future (right around tax time I think )

Laters,
Jeff

3 Years worth of work. (Yea, I know.. like everybody else, no spare time). Finally, it's mostly done. Waiting for the wife to stitch up the curtains. We still need to take the seats downstairs. Some minor decorating and touch-up, and all done.
Once everything gets settled down, I'll post the chronology, if anyone's interested.
A shot Monday morning:

...and a shot in the afternoon. What a difference carpet makes.

Thanks AVS and everyone here!!

My theater build is like a fine wine... aging for a long time, but well worth the wait.

Okay, I'll play too - ~138" 16x9 DIY drywall screen with Behr SS..... room is 12.5x19, ceiling at 90 inches



stage is 2x6, with roofing felt between 3/4 and 1/2 in ply held together with 86lbs of screws. Sand in the decoupled speaker ends, fibreglass in the middle sections. DIY bass traps in both colums, as well as absorption to deaden the front wall as best I could.

So I'll post a better picture when I have a chance to get a shot in the daylight (it's dark when I leave and dark when I get home so that'll have to wait until Saturday). But here's a couple of photos to give an idea until I get better shots.

Lights off with no flash (the deco fan wasn't installed yet either).



Deco fan installed and using flash.

Nice touch on the side details. I like your center stand as well, haven't figured out what to do for mine, might do a derivation of something like that.

jeeper, I know your room is all done and I don't mean this to be an insult or anything, but having the sub in the front seems to disrupt the look. Makes it look off balance. Have you tried putting it anywhere else? Just curious.

I've tried both front corners and it was too boomy. Also tried the back, but always seamed to be in the way. I get the best sound with it next to the center speaker, so that is where I left it. Room is never complete. I'm still making changes and tweaking all the time.

Thanks for input,
Steve

I just posted a bunch of pictures of my screen wall, including pics of how I constructed it, in my dedicated-HT thread. There's a link in my signature. Go to page 2 of the thread for construction pics, page 1 for a shot of the finished product -- we're working backwords in my thread.

Lots of pics.

I am about to build my room and I really like the screen walls where the sides start out a bit from the wall to enclose the L,R, SW and center speakers around the screen. I am wondering how many of you are building the fabric panels to cover the speakers? Are these made like regular speaker panels, with the normal plastic ball and socket joints for quick removal of the panels if necessary or are people using velcro? If so where are you sourcing the fabric and connectors? Any details on the materials and attachment method will greatly help my construction project.

Thanks,

Dave

The speaker grill plastic ball fasteners can be had at Partsexpress.com.
The fabric most often used is Guiliford of Maine (GOM) FR701 -2100 see fabricmate.com and others. Samples available for free at The GOM web site. Or a speaker fabric can be used (do a google)
Velcro, easier to use than the plastic balls is at HD or Lowes.

Dave, while Bigmouth is correct in the FR701 and such is commonly used for screen walls, I beleive you were asking about material to make the grilles for the speakers. Most of the time, people will use standard speaker grille cloth, available at most fabric stores or www.madisound.com as well as www.partsexpress.com. It is stretchy, semi transparent and acoustically transparent.

Oh and for attaching the frames or grilles, one of the new things is to use magnets. You can sink them in under the veneer or in the front panels from the back-side and then install them in the grille as well, so that you don't have the ugly post holes that the plastic balls require.

Screen is 2.35:1 acoustically transparent screen that I made myself. It is 8' wide. Adjustable side masking recesses into columns when in 2.35 mode and can be slid out for narrower content.

Based on this thread, I think it's obvious I'm making the right choice to paint my front wall flat black. (just a builder's beige on there right now)

I may start painting as early as tomorrow.

I'm still not sure what color to paint the sidewalls/ceiling. The carpet is a very dark burgundy. Wife and I are thinking a blueish gray/gray.

(My wife has really come around. She was sure this room was going to be a theater/game room. She now realizes this is a dedicated theater/media room and NOTHING more. Hence she's relaxing quite a bit on the color choices. )

Very nice room, but it seems you have room to go bigger? Say, something like 234" screen
