Chimney breast to left of room is sound challenge as I have to work off the chimney breast and make the remaining last front of the room appear to be one large wall.
Double glaze window might as well be paper which needs to be blocked up with x2 layers of MDF at different levels to reduce as much traffic sound as possible.
Acoustical tiles are fitted at different angles on side and rear wall and a few on the ceiling near to the front.Audio processorsY

I was kinder hoping I'd have it this way and would see it though to being finished until I scored some rare JBL Control 12SR and removed the plasterboard. Got start all over again and it peanuts for plasterboard.
Bed sheet visible to upper right corner for video projection as and when I run it.
Panoramic view got a little cropped in the editing of piecing the three halves together, I should have used a tripod.
Woodwork is not my sort of thing and thou I spent a few days building the platform stage and it was never intended to have heavier items placed it and its held up well, the 12SR weigh a damn sight more than the control 5. The box placed between the TV and stage is to give it a ridged middle support until I finish it off with beams on the left and right side or an extra one placed in the middle as I might fit an LCD flat screen to the stage base and move the sub over since it won't be affected by the magnet with discolouring of the picture.
Samson SRK21 cheap buy doesn't cost the Earth to rack mount. This is only one I have at the moment and x3 more will be needed to rack all the audio/video gear.
Yamaha RX-V650 cheap buy of eBay for under £70.00 offered only Dolby-EX dts-ES and other trimmings but the goal was to cut corners and use it as and when for Dolby TrueHD 7.1 dtsHDMA 7.1 though its 8channel input now there is no need to spend out on new AVR costing far more.
Irwin cinema rocker seats stadium with cup holders cheap buy for x6 seats remaining x3 are in the bedroom and awaiting to be fitted down to an MDF flooring that will over most of the living room floor so that the first row seats can be screwed into the MDF securely and raised seating platform at back at around 6" high will be more than enough.
A simple bit of timber screwed together can easily support the three seats.The Puck
Looking for ideas to use The Puck a starters sub bass transducer but I think its rather good for the price if you can find the best location for it, and that levels are balanced between sub-woofers and sub transducers there is no excuses for overpowering them.
If placed in poor way most of the lows used up might be nearing its limit and can get a little warm as I tested a sine wave and later found out over several minutes.
Well the seat bucket has plenty of room as I expected it would. Its now trail and error to see what I can get from these small devices?
One fast simple way I saw was to place it between the seating springs and it worked magic expect it has a bit of sweet point a rather unpleasant sweet spot, when after playing Earthquake (1974) The Big One on chapter 8 region 2 DVD twice I had trouble sitting down for 20 mins. My ass was still buzzing off all the LFE.1 kinder like the "white finger" effect. A bit tingly well at least I know they work.
Another way was to use a quick means of double sided tape which produced better effect over the whole seating with different frequencies within its range ether vibrated the seat bucket or armrest and occasional the seat back, kinder like what one might notice in the real world, only thing missing of course is vibration beneath my feet and I've got plans for that one once the flooring goes down.
Watching a bit of Laserdisc once in while with the man of steel Superman The movie (1978).
