We are in the process of getting quotes to finish our basement. It has been a long time dream for both me and the wife to have a dedicated HT. Due to the usual suspects, dollar bills, it will not be the over the top themed theater of our dreams. We are going for more of a casual room, but with front projection and 110'' screen it will get us by
This is the area dedicated for the HT. It will be 20x12x7.5 when finished. The screen wall will run left to right at the support pole. The area behind the screen wall is set for an unfinised storage.
This looks towards the back of the HT. There will be two openings, no doors, at the front and end of the stairs to help keep the basement open. The HVAC is an obvious issue and will have to be moved and snugged up against the stairs to make for a tight soffit.
The initial layout for the entire basement as drawn up by our contractor. It a big space, 1400 total sq feet with 1100 planned to be finished.
I plan to layout the HT area for the contractor and have him put things were I need them. I will do the pre wire, PVC runs for future proofing, and install the equipment. I can not stop reading AVS!!!
I have no equipment for the HT at this time. I am currently trying to figure out speaker placement. It will be 5.1 and I want a clean look for the setup. i would prefer no stands or speakers on the floor. I was thinking in-wall/ceiling speakers, but not sure now. Maybe just hang hand them on the wall. Maybe I could have them behind the screen? Not sure.
Anyway, thanks for looking and I welcome all suggestions. Later.edit: added links for final (for now as of 5/16 ) pics and slideshow.Complete PicturesSlide Show
