Here is mine......."Holden Beach Sea-Nema" I live at the beach hence the color and the name. The room is 13.8 feet wide and about 17 feet deep. The screen is a 110 inch DIY. The seating riser has 4 LFE Buttkicker's with 5.1 surround sound but it is wired for 7.1 sound.

How far back is your first row? We're in the process of building our new home and our HT is 15x17. Any other info would be appreciated!

Which PJ? Any trouble with SDE?

The front row is about 11.5 feet back and the second is about 15.5 feet back. If you go to my webshots, and look at all the pics, I have put some info with each picture. Let me know if you have any questions.

fordfisher, how about getting some 1/8" or 1/4" melamine and paint that?

Actually, you are probably better off hanging around in the screen section for a while to see what the latest thing to do is, besides the SMX screen, which is acoustically transparent, which doesn't help you any.

Do you have a build thread, or any closeup pictures of the details of your screen wall? I am going to be building a shadow box as well, and I like the look of the way the screen fits in yours.

General Pics are here

More specific below. Note that the frames show thru here but only because of the photo flash. Under normal lighting they are totally black.





Figured these were appropriate for a screen wall thread. Note that the shadow box
recess panels (horizontal) were 3/4 ply connecting the front frame and wall frame and covered with black GOM with spray adhesive to attach (3M super 77). GOM speaker and other face panels were screwed in place so as to be removeable and the screw heads capped with black plastic screw head caps.

This was a front projector retrofit of a built-in 4:3 RPTV set-up I did in the 90's.
Lesson learned: NEVER base built in woodwork on existing technology. Make it adaptable.

Here are some recent shots. Need to get the tripod out and take some long exposure shots, might turn out better.

With flash:


(Do you like my center channel stand? I haven't built a final one yet, I'm still working out the design so for now it's on cinder blocks covered with a black garbage bag and a piece of MDF scrap to tilt it up )




Without flash:


Mike

PS. LOL! I was looking at all the pictures on the thread and came across one where my mind said, "Hey! That guy's looks just like mine!?" Then I realize, it was mine. Earlier in building, but still mine

I'm a cinder block evangelist, best speaker stand money can buy at any price, except for the aesthetics. If you can get around that, accept no substitute.

Help! The framing is underway in my basement. The wall behind the future proscenium/screen wall is poured cement. I understand I'll need good acoustic treatment on that wall (e.g. linacoustic), but should that wall be framed/drywalled? It looks like extensive soundproofing to isolate the basement will be prohibited by cost, so I guess I don't need to take dramatic steps on this wall for that reason, mostly to keep the soundstage "clean." I plan to use an SMX screen with LCR & Sub in this space.

Room plan can be seen in this thread:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=872028

Thanks for any help

Picture with no screen up to show 8" proficient in-walls behind the AT screen.

well I am back after a long absence and ready to do theatre room 2.0 real stadium seating and flush mounting my screen wall . and ofcourse a real acoustical treatment to the walls.

my question is this....

i understand the furing strips and how they help flush mount the acustic panels below and the batting above... but if the cloth you buy is only so wide how do you deal with verticle seams? i assume the chair rail etc takes care of the horizontals but eventually you will need to "tack" down the cloth.

how is this accomplished? I am being such a newb

Depends on how you are laying out your room. In mine, I stapled the fabric vertically in the inside corners and door openings only, everything else is done on the horizontal furring strips. That's why you get the fabric in a roll, so you start at one side and start stapling and stretching the fabric as you go around the room and just keep rolling it off the roll.
