This looks great. Wish I could both see and hear in person. I am building my house soon and will have a dedicated HT room above my garage and I have never read about the sand technique (looks like I have more reading to do!). Is there any other techniques or cost efficient products to deaden the sound without the weight of sand? Thanks.

That was my first visit and I loved it. The people were nice, the weather, the food and the drinks. I will definitely visit again soon. I will look you up when I do.

I actually grew up in Arnold in a community called Ulmstead (about 10 mins outside of Annapolis). I bought a condo on Back Creek in Annapolis after graduating from college in 95' and lived there until 02'. My wife and I moved to a community called Hunt Meadow (off of Spa Rd.) where we started a family. About 4 years ago we outgrew the house and headed a little west of Annapolis to Davidsonville. I have a link to an album with pics and a link to my build thread in my signature.

I'd love to see and hear your theater sometime!

IMAX at home needs tall ceilings, say 12-14 feet tall, not many have that space.
Then 4 way auto masking to handle different aspect ratios.

thanks Big, sorry to be dense but this room is very close to the size i'm working with, and i'm trying to figure out if i can fit that back bar in without compromising on walkways, etc. Really appreciate all the insight you provide!

Congrats again NYGFan for an outstanding space!

From one home-theater-obsessed cop to another, I salute you! I thought it was pretty funny how you were concerned about being bothered by the sound of footsteps from upstairs. In my house, it's the other way around. When I'm watching a movie down in the home theater, my wife complains that she can't hear the upstairs TV! biggrin.gif

I think my favorite feature is the snacking table and stools behind the theater seating. Makes it into a real dual purpose movie & sports/TV viewing area. I might have to try to incorporate something similar in the future.

2 ft for false wall.
11 1/2 ft to the riser,
6 1/2 ft to front of bar

leaving 5-3 for back bar and walkway. We cheated on the rear columns and made them 2 inches less deep than the others by recessing the speakers into the walls.

I am not sure about that I have a 2.1 Constant Image Area Seymour Center Stage XD DIY screen and my MLP is 10'6" from the screen. At 137" diagonal 126” wide Gravity in 3D was right there in your face. We were ducking at the pieces of shuttle and space station debris. Even from the back row of 17’. The spinning of the actors in space made us dizzy. Even in DTS HD Master of 5.1 with NEO-X to 7.1 in was very engaging.

Not that it's any of our business, but there are plenty of ways. I'm guessing that his police salary is not his only source of income or wealth. But someone who has been on a large department for a long time can be paid quite well, and a lot of police find themselves working a lot of overtime. It also sounds like he has a significant other, so there is that also.

From my own experience, I work with plenty of guys who are setup quite well. People who come from well-heeled families, or who got a sizable inheritance, or who received a significant settlement in some legal action, or who previously had more lucrative careers that they got tired of, or who are married to someone who makes six figures. And it's not that unusual for a police officer to be married to a doctor, dentist, lawyer, pharmacist, etc.

It's also possible that some people have been wise with saving and investing their money over many years, and occasionally decide to spend some of it on something that is important to them. For that matter, it's possible that he didn't actually spend $50,000 cash, and the home improvements were financed with a home equity loan, or some combination of loan/cash/credit.

But again, it's none of our business and that's not what we're here for.

Congratulations Clyde on an Award Winning home theater! It is beautiful !!

I'm curious if you are using your Harmony Ultimate remote to control the Insteon lighting dimmers??

If yes, how is this performed? I would like to implement a similar structure with a few simple scenes and about 6 zones.

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Hey Edgar, thanks a lot brother.. I also want to thank you for responding to the guy that was concerned about how I paid for my theater room. Haters will always hate;)

I thought about it and then at the last minute decided against it. I figured I could add them at a later time if I decided to go that route.
