I've made some decent progress on the room - will post some pictures shortly. I ran wiring to the main panel for two new circuits, one 20 amp for the outlets and a 15 amp for lighting. I'll have total of 3 distinct circuits for the room, 2 15's and one 20. Five single outlet gang boxes have been installed and wired at this point.
The insulated duct work(seen hanging towards the floor in my last post) has been terminated and installed into register cans. I'm thinking I'll hire an hvac person to review my work and advise on cold-air return placement. The rest of my basement is already finished and there is no cold air return on the entire floor. This tells me the hvac contractor did not need a cold-air return for the basement. What i don't know is... now with the extra room, does a cold-air return become manadatory?
My Epson Home Cinema 1080 arrived last week - intact it seems. I haven't fired it up to check for damage. The owners manual states a projection distance of 10.8 to 23.0 ft for a 110" screen. I figure i'll mount it at about 12' from the screen(Carada BW). Any red flags from anyone on this mounting distance?
