Use one of these:

Put one end in the hole and "work it" through to the other side, which isn't easy but is doable since it's steel. Then once on the other side tape the speaker wire to the steel piece you just "fished" through and pull it back to you - voila

Yup, that's what I use to fish the wire/cable.

Bump to a very nice theater. One of the best, definitely.

I'm inspired to build mine, which is five months from now.

I just spread out the can light evenly, and put them slightly closer to the side wall to avoid the "light path" of the projector.

This is by far one of my favourite theatres. I have just finished wiring my theatre room but I have been going through a ton of build threads to see what different people have done. I have a room about 19' x 13'-6" so a reasonable size but not really big. What I really like about your room (as said many times before) is that it doesn't feel like a closed off theatre room where you feel like you should sit in silence the whole time.

You did a great job making it a functional, social space that would be fun to hang out in, but still provide the only 2 features that a theatre room really needs (in my opinion): big picture & big sound.

Nice work! You have definitely made me feel better about my decision to make my build more of an extension to the rest of my house rather than a completely separate entity on its own.

Thanks for your kind words.

We truly enjoyed it in the past 4 yrs of this little theater space. And we do believe we achieved what we want (cozy) from what we have (budget, space).

However, it's about time for us to move onto a new chapter, new HT! This time around, I guess we want to try a more modern cinema space given I'm having a much larger space to play with.

Well, at least I know my little HT will continued somewhere as I've just gave all of my equipments (projector, screen, speakers, amp, that sofa, etc.) to my nephew for his new townhouse.

What was the exact paint you used for this. I totally want to do the same thing in my basement.

Did you use a primer on the white walls?

Yes - Very Nice!

What model of recessed light cans did you use? and the bulb types?

Also - do you know the model of the carpet?

Thanks!

It's just regular 4" can light from Home Depot. As for the carpet, I really forgot what it is, but it's inexpensive & again from Home Depot too.

Gary - did you use "Mouse Ears Flat Matte" or "Mouse Ears Flat Enamel"?

Home Depot has both but I am not sure which one to get.

I know Im digging up an old thread but obviously and all time HT so not hard to revive the thread.

Not sure if you recall as I know you moved to a new HT and system but had a question of when you ran the 7006's.

Im considering running 7006 and already have a Def tech sub, how did you run the 7006's as far as the bass - did you turn the gain down completely or did it supplement the super cube?

I was running the7006 Large along with the Supercube1. I guess it depends on the exact model of the Supercube that you have. If I have a Reference, I'll probably cross any BP tower @ 40hz or 60hz instead.

I know your not in this theater any more but must say I enjoyed reading the build thread, and the simplicity yet functionality you built here.

I know this thread is dead and has been but hoping some people are still around

The pictures are now gone and I can't find the article that was published about it. We are looking at getting a house and I will most likely have to go from my large HT in my current house to a 12 x 16 space for the new HT.

So as this thread keeps coming up and everyone loved it I am wondering if anyone has the pictures that went with it?


Thanks!!!

I googled "landsharks home theater" and found some photos on pinterest.

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/525232375271095505/

It's the one with double black glass doors on the side.

I just sold the house, closing next week. Thanks for brought back my memories. I still do like my first little cozy HT.

Here's a few finished photos again. Sorry the old hosting company is gone. I might try to re-upload some of the photos again within this thread if there's enough interested.
