Of equipment of course. Preferably in theater/room

Im looking for ideas/pictures

Such as:
Behind the bar rack
In a side wall
Underneath the screen
Etc.....

If time allows, comment on why you choose to do it the way you did

Thanks

I thought you were getting ready for Mardi Gras early for a second there.

I'm planning on building out a small closet to house my equipment in the back corner of my HT. I'm trying to do things on basically a shoestring budget so alas, no Middle Atlantic rack for me. It's probably not the best for acoustics, but I'm kind of limited in what I can do given my room constraints.

This topic came up about a year ago, interesting thread. It's probably been archived by now.

My rack is in the concession area. I built a separate closet for it and is easily accessible with a door on the side of the closet. Includes a bathroom fan with a temperature controlled switch. Its a middle Atlantic Slim 5-43. Go the larger one so there is plenty of room for expansion. The bottom part of the rack is all blanks.




All the rack pictures:

built my own racks and had it all wired here to begin with. No big deal it is temp as we plan to move this summer. I like to see my equipment but the light are slightly distracting but I can shut most of them off.

Any drawbacks of having your equipment in the utility room, I'm thinking about doing the same in a new house. Any pics or recommendations?

If you have to ask, you couldn't afford the annual maintenance fees.

Mine is in the back, and I have an IR sensor in the front to control everything. Rack is DIY using rails and trays from parts express. "door" opens for wire management and receiver slides out to access it.

I'll take anything.

There are no stupid questions, but there are a LOT of inquisitive idiots. Me being one of them at times.

I have to say I was a little hesitant to open this thread. I feared there would be nothing but pictures of sweaty man boobs in here.
