Personally (no scientific knowledge to back this up), I'm not a big fan of ceilings that angle all the way to a peak when it comes to a theater room. Aside from funky sound bounces, makes it...

I used Jockey Red from Hobby Lobby for my drapes. Has that slight theater crimson feel to it. Generally not too much reflectivity from my projector. I can see that they're red, but that's about it.

The general standard is for the Atmos speakers to go 45 degrees in front of and behind the MLP. Depending on how often your second row is used, you might want to push the rears back a bit. As for...

Came out to almost exactly 8. 2x6 frame, 3/4" plywood on bottom, 2 layers of 3/4" plywood on top, and roofing felt between every layer (in part to help keep the insulation in place). I needed to...

For what it's worth, finally got my riser built and was able to get a solid feel for what options are left. The riser is 9x5, mounted the seats so the rock stops pretty much even with the back of...

I'm thinking there may be something in how smooth the power from a given device is. Case in point, I've been using the Cree 3-Way LEDs in two lamps in my living room. In one of the lamps, I had 3...

Depending on how much room you have to work with, you could experiment with a hush box, but that might be a lot of effort compared to turning e-shift off.

As Mike noted, the whine is normal with e-shift on, but one thing I noticed is I can't really hear it when I'm sitting. If I stand up, closer to level with the projector, it's very present, but my...

Yep, will have light strips. I figure I can either hang a bit beneath the side soffits and have a light strip across, or start even, have the small drop where the speaker is, and don't have light...

I'm in a similar position as well. I was working with a pretty short ceiling to begin with, so my soffit only drops 8" from the ceiling. However, in my theater there's a window behind the screen...

Question for you, Jeff. When you're playing around with the strips, can you try to get an idea for the distance at which the strips are effective? I'm still keeping an eye on this possibility while...

8' ceilings. The cheapie I got from Walmart I think is 18", but low power too.

I'm hoping to do something like Snickers did in his build. Small enough bar top to be pretty unobtrusive, but be able to slide stools up to it when needed, or use as a standing bar when not.
