I'd try to get your speakers in those back columns. I'm not sure what the 2 HVAC vents are, but if one is a supply and one is a return, that will be very ineffective. The air will just go from one...

Due to the lack of available wall space outside of the theater, I'm forced to put a couple of my lighted poster boxes inside the theater. Of course they will be turned off during movie viewing, but...

Ahh, that explains it. Some of the worst phone cameras are in HTC phones. A suggestion if you're going to continue to use that phone, turn off the flash, turn on all the lights in the room and try...

What BIG should've said is that the drop ceiling will kill any soundproofing efforts you use elsewhere. If you are able to DD GG the ceiling as well, you'll do much better at soundproofing the room....

Agreed - waste of time. The carpet pad will not provide the mass and damping that green glue can provide. As for time, I understand the child, but a 10-12 hour job and 2+ hour commute?!? :eek: ...

I'm curious on the RowOne as well. I've currently got 92" spec'd for my rows (3 chairs), but if I could go 82" or 87" that would be better.

Too bad all the links are BROKEN...sorry, this is a pet peeve of mine.

Back to topic - I thought the review was great. In the end I ended up going a bit smaller and got an Outlaw LFM-1 EX.

I can't say that what I plan on doing is correct, and many here will poo-poo my methods, but basically I'm just going with insulation, DD and GG. No backer boxes or putty pads, no clips or channel,...

12'8 is a pretty good width, probably enough to just squeeze in 4 seats. If you're OK with that, I'd stuff those pockets full of insulation and cover em up with drywall. If you're concerned about...
