Great looking theatre. What are the panels made of that the sconces are mounted on? Are they acoustic material at reflection points? Thanks for sharing!

Hello, and thanks for the compliments.

The panels are made of wooden frames, and the 'filling' is made of 1" fiberglass panels. The sound absorbing stuff. Then they are wrapped with black GoM (Guilford of Maine fabric) which is acoustically transparent. There are 5 panels along each wall, and they help keep the echoes down to a minimum. I did not overdo it so that the room didn't feel completely 'dead'. It turned out just perfect. The room has a thick carpet, so that takes care of most of the deadening already -- but walls are important.

Yes, the counter has a built-in trash opening. I got the idea from the commercial grade counters at my office. The cabinet maker simply opened up a hole, and put a round trash grommet to finish it up nicely. Then I simply put a trash can inside the cabinet. It keep everything concealed, clean, and looking good.

Thanks for explaining the panels to me. This is exactly what I need. If you have a few moments, can you walk me through the process of building these or can I buy them somewhere? I am getting ready to paint my HT and have a bad echo (new construction..basement). Thanks again, Chad

Very Nice area.... Do you have your poster lights on individual switches or are they all controlled together? What kind of light did you pick out for that?

Hahaha… famous last words!!! You are never finished!!! There will always be something to add.
As far as your room, I love it. Looks wonderful. Despite the skepticism and negativity you received early on in this build from members on this site, you forged ahead and finished your dream. Or should I say, finished your initial construction.

Nice room. Nice colors.

Poster lights are all controlled by one Lutron dimmer. The sconces are controlled by another dimmer.

The sconces themselves were purchased at 1stoplighting.com

I am sure he missed it the first time and will probably respond now, but I know you can get Exit signs at Home Depot (saw one on their site, but since they have sucky web designers who love sessionID I can't link it for you) and probably Lowes (I thought I had seen them before but cannot find one on their site). Also, for a wider selection, you can go to an electical supply house. I am sure they would be very helpfull and interested once you told them what you wanted it for.

I got my bulk cable wallplates from firefold.com, but I think they stopped carrying black ones. Seems monoprice is now carrying them too! They also have larger 3-gang ones.

Sorry, I did miss that. The nicest ones I found, and for the best price, where at The Exit Sign Co.. I paid less than $25 shipped for the one in my link (code LEDRBB), and it has a battery backup (stays lit during outages), and is LED based. It really is top notch.

No, the counter was custom built by a cabinet-maker. He does commercial grade cabinetry for hospitals, so I knew he'd do a top notch job. It was pricey though!!!

forgot to ask, but the exit sign plugs into an outlet or runs of a battery?

They hard wire into a standard electrical box and have their own built in battery.

Your room turn out awesome! The dimensions are similar to mine which has me considering an off center approach (at least its a fleeting thought among a million others).

Now that the room is done, how do you rate your room in terms of sound and the off center approach?

Good question. I believe that the offcenter approach sacrifices SOME of the sound experience. It's hard to quantify. Basically, the surround speakers are a little too close Left/Right. I would say the surround effect is somewhat less pronounced and compromised because of this.

Fact of the matter is, I absolutely had no other option, and if I had to do this again, I would not change a single thing I did. All the planning really paid off, and I enjoy the room more than I ever imagined I would!
