I am guessing the bottom panels sit on a base board, the the rest of the panels on top of another with liquid nail, etc.

Yes, I've been eyeing on the Triad InWall Gold LCR (to save & preserve my viewing distance and space) + InWall Silver Surrounds. But that won't happen until I've got a few other things done in the house first. Wife is asking for an exercise room, and I want a wet bar right outside the HT. wink.gif

What are the spec's on the wall panels? It looks like you have a thin layer of  Linacoustic and an air gap between that and the wall. I have not seen this approach before. If it works, it beats wrangling all those boxes of roxul or owens-corning.

I can hear it now...honey, besides taking your shoes off before entering the HT, please put that drink in a sippy cup with a lid.  Naw...I'll just step up to the bar for a cold one first...lol.

If you want a LOCAL Triad gold LCR / silver surround demo, let me know. Even have them connected to an Oppo, Denon, and Emotiva stack!

beautiful room... but why not slant each panel a couple of degrees and put them up so no two are parallel or perpendicular?

Great job,

its not often someone catches the essence of the local multiplex cinema in a home cinema

(unless they are Mr Lucas or Mr Spielberg)

 

although did n't see anyone selling popcorn on the way in (at overinflated prices)

Looks great. Little bit of friendly advice: Make sure that the Xbox 360 right side vent and top exhaust vent have at least six inches (preferably 12) of breathing room game consoles can overheat quite easily.

Very nice. May I ask where you got the media rack? Also, the cabinet looks like black melamine if I am correct?

I was designing one, but then saw your rack :-(

Gary is beside himself watching the big game.

Why am I just now noticing that there are 8 Gary's in this pic...

From what i was told by the builder window & sprinkler system is a requirement for any room inside a house here in Montgomery county. It doesn't bother me, but I might paint them in black one day (as BigMouthDC been always poking me about them tongue.gif ).


Nice job! My old Ht in AZ had sprinklers but with the ceiling black and them painted black nobody ever noticed. It was also code based on sqft. No way around it other than paint but I would not worry, everything looks very good!!

How wide is your room? My old ht was 13' my new one 16' , looking forward to the extra width.

Have a Happy and safe New Year!!!

The only reason I still haven't get a Synology is because my old WHS v1 still running strong. However, I have about 1TB of space left, so when I'm running out of space, I'll grab a 1813+ then.

It actually is an Ikea bookcase, and the color is dark brown. I think I have the product link in my thread.

The room is 15' wide. And yes, every extra foot of space makes a different!

I saw some similar ones at Lowes. I also found some racks on Newegg and TigerDirect.

great construction. looks the right cube dimension. the seats looks amazing. the only think i should use for my personal taste, is klipsch reference speakers. i know definitive speakers had bipolar technology with built in powered sub. what really catch my attention was that line was discontinued for some reason.

 

 

what i guess, if you got the right subs, is not particularly needed.

 

but, CONGRATULATION for that stunned THEATER.

Congrats Gary. The picture of all of the Gary's watching the big game is epic!

I like the staggered frames and I did a modified version of this for my own newly finished room with 4 large "staggered" frames hiding surround speakers.

I saw that you are looking to go with in wall triads as surrounds and this is exactly what I did. Triad in wall bronze times 4 for me. Pleased thus far with the performance.

True, but in residential construction, they normally use retractable sprinklers with a smooth cap that stays flush with the ceiling until they pop out if activated.
At least that's what my house has.

Black Ceilings is the way to go, I was hesitant at first myself, but as soon as it was finished I could not imagine my home theater without it.

Nice job Gary!

Looks great! I use Def Tech's too. I just might copy some of your ideas for my future setup.

One question is you sprinkler system water based or Co2?

If water you might want to look into Co2, just in case, they wont hurt the electronics in a fire or cause such a mess.
See here... http://www.vikingsprinkler.com/co2-system.php
