SoulMan,

You can start one - I'm sure there are others that have the same concerns.

It's a 115" wide 2.35:1 screen. I use a Panamorph UH380 to stretch the image to fit. I bought SmX material and built the screen myself. I don't use the "acoustically transparent" feature of the screen in my setup, but I'm very happy with it.

They are Berkline 090's. I'd like to have a matching second row, but I already had the couch which has the benefit of seating 3.

I got them through Roman at Ultimate Home Entertainment, who I'd highly recommend dealing with.

Nice.. Even the fireplace looks like it hasn't been used.

That's because it hasn't! The entire room was gutted and redone.

Here's mine, 12x15 with double doors in the back. Tight space, likely putting in one row of seats or a large L-shaped sofa for family of 5. Materials used:
- two layers of 1/2in drywall with greenglue
- 1 in linacoustic on back wall, and along the sides slightly above sitting ear level
- polybatting above up to the soffits
- two sets of corner bass traps on back wall
- wrapped in storebought, local fabric (black and brown) - using 1in furring strips to hang
- installed Grafik Eye 3104 with fourzones (two sets of can lights, one rope light, and side sconces)
- Will eventually put in projector with 92-100in screen

I love the idea of a thread dedicated to "small" rooms... we just need to define small.

I use to think my theater was on the large side at 14'2" x 22' x 8'2" but compared to so many theaters on this forum, mine is on the small side. Especially when you factor in my height limitation; 5' of left side is only 7'2" due to HVAC chase. Also, since I wanted all or most of my seats to meet THX specs., I have limited seating to 6.

I think any criteria should include a minimum of HxWxL. If one of those dimensions is lacking, you have to work around things. We could possible include seating capacity as well.

Thanks,
Dave

I'd say any width or length dimension which is 14' or less would define small. I would not include height as most pjs out there can accomodate for a low ceiling configuration

Mine is a room right off of our master bedroom. It used to be an exercise room. The room is 11'-5" wide by 13'-4" deep. I am really liking the image and sound in this small room. I am using a Planar PD7130 and a 106" fixed frame screen. Seating is just for two or three. For sound I am using a Denon 3300 as a pre/pro and a six channel Kenwood amp for the power. The speakers are RBH WM-30's and a NHT sub. I placed the equipment in the a mechanical room and controlling it remotely. I did not do a build thread. I just took a few pictures afterwards.

Mine is 13'x20'x7.5' like others I was inspired by a lot of HT owners here, Our hometheater is not as luxurious like others but I am very happy with it, just recently added acoustic panels and very happy with the results, again before building the acoustic panels I did a tremendous research on this forum before finally doing it.
this Forum ROCKS. Next project will be replacing the carpet.

Love the panels. Can you tell a huge difference now that they're in?

Mine definitely qualifies for the "small" theater, it's 10.5' x 18'. I am in the process of building it now. I keep thinking I am getting close, but then I start to think about it and there is SOO much left to do before I can truly say it's finished...(not sure that will ever be the case though.)

Here is a link:

Thank you. Yes big difference, I should have done long time ago. I plan to put more in the back maybe cover the whole door with panel and maybe upper corners.

Love your HT, it is one the nicest. I Love your posters. and the sconces they are really cool.

Hey guys,
I'm building an ultra small theater (10x11ft, it's a bedroom) and I want to put my components in the closet. Can I just push my open rack into the closet or should I think about something enclosed? I'm going to take the doors off and cover the opening with curtains. Will that be enough ventilation?
Any of you done this before?

Thanks for the kind words. I'm actually going to be putting up a couple of Chameleon frames over the next few weeks (one on the side wall and one on the back wall) so I'll have to let you know what my ears think

You should have no problem with an open rack. It's really just cosmetic at that point. As far as ventilation, you'd probably want a more sheer curtain to allow the heat to pass through. The downside to this of course is that you'll be heating your theater via the rack so it could get a little toasty in there with everything running. Do you have the ability to vent the closet from the rear?
