this is great thanks guys, this will give me ideas how to make mind, specially I am not a handy man but I experienced when I build a frame (studs) around my garage for converting it to home theater but it is not much work so I am still not that good. And
this will be my first time building a riser.

Thanks again everyone for sharing.

Thanks everyone I am visiting everyone's link and seeing a lot of good ideas from you guys I appreciate it very much. And the pictures of the riser are all very nice.

my room is 13ft width and 20ft long. I will have a berkline 1 row of 3 chairs for my first row. The idea for building a riser is for my leather sofa that is 77'' long and 35'' depth I figured if I build a riser for it it will be 5ft width x 7ft length. My first row is about 11ft away from my 106'' screen and the 2nd row with the riser will be 16.5 ft away from the screen. the first row is 112'' length. I would like to get some advise for placing the sofa in the first row or 2nd row. The only thing is if I put the berkline chairs in the 2nd row I will have to build much bigger riser. I'd like to minimize that if I could.

Great work Rob and thanks for sharing I will have to go with 2x12 also for my riser, after using the riser calculator on this forum my result is minimum 11 3/4" I might as well make it 12". Thanks again for sharing. Your theater is coming along very nicely.

I have a similar room size as yours - two full length (82" wide x 40" deep) sofas, one on a 13.25" high riser.



Riser measurements are 69 in deep x 112 in wide.

Hi wooly I just finished looking at your thread and it is very informative, the way you build your riser is very simple and your stage is very nice. And great buy with those coasters.

Question to everyone, newbie here. My home theater is in our 2nd floor of our house building a riser is the insulation still necessary or no more? what are the benefits of having it insulated? I plan to do a 12'' high riser and it will be about 5ft in depth and 7ft in lenght. Any suggestions?


Thanks,
Peter

Thanks for sharing, very nice hometheater, this definitely will help me build my riser, mine will be a smaller version of your riser, very comfy looking sofa now you made me thinking if I going to buy additional sofa instead. But thank you sharing I appreciate it. I see you got the monkeyman mount. Nice

Most do it to keep sound resonance down from with inside of the riser itself. Mines full of insulation and when I jump up and down on it its like jumping on carpeted concrete solid like a rock. you will have a bit of a different out come since your on a upper floor. I would fill it full.
I am sure others will chime in


Also check out Ronnie's build his theater is on a 2nd floor also http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...ghlight=ib+sub

That is right.
Thanks wooly I am going to fill it up then, I know it would be better if I insulate it I thought maybe I asked so I can explain it better to my other half.
thanks for the link also. Thank you again I appreciate it.
