Finally got around to taking some picture of my Theater. Its been in a constant upgrade from the time I initially built it (2004). The room is 15' x 25' with an acoustic drop ceiling. Still use it regularly with the family for TV watching, playing the Wii and movie parties all the time with friends.

The name Bean & Screen comes from the adjacent coffee bar room, hence (Bean) and the Theater Room (Screen). A friend made up a sign with movie title as coffee drinks. That room now is pretty much a bar/poker room.


Equipment List:

Projector: NEC 9PG XTRA
Screen: 125" Custom built with 1.85 aspect ratio
Receiver: Harman Kardon AVR 247 (7.1)

Audio Processor:
Custom Bongiovi Acoustics DSP (processing 5.1)
Rane THX-44 Subwoofer Home Theater Equalizer

Video: Samsung Blue Ray DVD player
TV: Dish Network VIP722K DVR

Speakers:
JBL Model 8330 (Front Left/Right/Center)
Klipsch SS-1 (Side Surrounds)
Klipsch SB-3 (Rear Surrounds)
Aura Ast-2b-4 Pro Bass Shaker (2 mounted in each row)

Amps for speakers:
Adcom GFA 535 (Side Surrounds)
Adcom GFA 545 (Rear Surrounds)
JBL MPX600 (Front Left/Right)
JBL MPX600 (Center / SUB)

Misc.:
2 Rack Rider RR-15 each on dedicated 20amp line
Custom 15' Sub

Hey a CRT projector. Haven't seen one of those in awhile, still going strong for you? Can you still find replacement CRT tubes should you need them?

I have just over 4000 hours on the CRT's and they still look great. As for when the time comes to replace them, I'm sure I will be looking at a new projector. For the time being, I am more than happy with the quality of the image and find few projectors that I would be willing to replace it with.

Well you have a great room and I can only imagine how authentic movies sound with those great theater style speakers and sub. Looks like a great place to unwind and watch a few movies.
