Yes I do and thanks!!! The granite for the back bar comes this Friday at 9am so please don't mind the empty counter back there. The entire HT room and basement was all done by me except the drywall and trim work I just don't have the time with work and kids. The next post will be pictures. I work in the trades so building and fabricating things come easy.

The front looks a little different now I moved things around but same speakers and subs up there it looks more uniform now.
Looking on adding 2 more 18's down there for nearfield bass which would bring me to 6 18's and doing Atmos to. It's been a lot of work but the room sounds good. Sub boxes are tuned to 16hz at 20 cubic feet each. Ran rew in the room and it's flat all the way down to 10hz.

Looks great! Is your theater in a basement or upstairs on a second floor? You will love the nearfiled!

How 'near' does 'nearfied' need to be to be 'near'? Serious question, because I'm considering it.

I have been in several conversations about this and the true answer is within 12 inches of your head. Now, that is really not practical nor would I want a sub that close to my head. Other people say within 3'. My nearfiled subs are about 3-4" behind my seats and do a great job. I am also on a second floor and that makes the experience a lot better imo.

Eq'ing nearfield subs is subjective. I personally tune them with a giant house curve from 5hz sloping down the rest of the bandwidth because I don't need the upper end of the bandwidth that close to me. I think it makes a perfectly seamless response with the rest of my subs in my theater and I have tried many ways and hours and hours of tuning my theater. Right now I am so happy with the way my theater sounds. I watch Jupiter Ascending last night, and that movie beat me up! The audio mix was fantastic and the bass was really intense. The movie sucked IMO, but that audio track made it tolerable.
