18ga finishing nail + liquid nail. For the 1" thick panel, actually just liquid nail or Velcro will be strong enough. But for my 2" thick panels, an actual nail is needed to secure them on wall.

Thanks AirBenji and R Harkness!
The masking system is self-designed. The inspiration comes mainly from Moggie`s fantastic thread, and Rich.. I really like your cozy room and masking system and enjoyed reading your threads. smile.gif

In this video you can see my masking system (sorry about the poor video quality).

I didn't even think about velcro! Thank you

I was just curious about vibrations from audio.

Finished mine a couple months ago. Since it seems evident in this thread that ya'll like the pics with the guests, I thought i'd include a few with my own guests. There's still things i wanna add. Starting in 2 weeks im making a DIY Star ceiling panels and a DIY Cinebar behind the 2nd row to seat 3 bar stools.

This website and forum has nelped me SO MUCH. I'm sure glad i stumbled onto this site.

Thanks for the call out! I'd really like to see some construction pics or your masking system. Any chance of a few details in the DIY screen thread?

Cheers.

What an inspirational thread every time I look at this I get more motivated.

My first theater.

My theater is 12 feet wide and just under 18 1/2 feet long. I have one riser, and seating for six. The seating is mainly organized to give two other couples placement side by side. I ran a three by three arrangement for a while, in order to have a sweet spot, but it created awkward social moments as couples had to split every time we watched a movie.



My screen is 108", running a nice video image from an EPSON ProCinema 6010

My processor is a Marantz AV8801, and I run full 11.1

Three amps with 5 channels each power the theater. One channel is left in reserve. 14 channels are divided up by the front L/C/R all getting two channels each, and remaining speakers each have a single channel from an amplifier, making the total of 14.

I use a single Crown amp to power the seat rumblers in the four rear row seats.

A Velodyne DD18 is used for my main and only sub (at this time).

My media is stored on a NAS drive of 30TB.

We just love our theater, and we host both friends and family regularly.

Thanks for viewing my theater.

What a beautiful theater zuluwalker. I am certainly envious of the size of your NAS movie collection and I'll bet it sounds terrific in there!

Thank you dvmiller. The collection makes it so easy to find a movie. Often when crushed for time, I watch half here and half later. The sound is fantastic

NOOB alert!!!! I kid, I kid!

NAS is Network Assignable Storage. It's basically a hard drive on your network. So instead of having an external hard drive hooked to your computer via USB cable and being limited to the data transfer limits of USB (or whatever the connecting method), you can hook the storage up to your network use network transfer speeds of +/-100 mbps . Your computer does not need to be powered on for other devices on the network to access the storage.

interesting. but how do you then stream the movies in your nas? dont you need some type of hardware connected to your projector or reciever that picks up the nas?
can u set up for example a ps3 that is hooked up to your reciever to connect to the nas and play on your projector? or do you need a specific hardware that reads the nas's storage?

or... Network Attached Storage. Really doesn't matter though, it's all awesome in the end.

Check out my equipment list for how I stream my ripped Blu-Ray collection to my projector. It's much like using the PS3. And you can use the PS3 too, just have to have the correct file type

Not sure if I ever posted an update image after I completed all the work. I still want to go a little larger on the screen. I am using an HD33 Optoma 1080p proj. I figured out if I pull the proj. back approx 8" and play with the zoom and open the lens a tad I can go from the current 131" to 148" fairly easily. It will just take convincing the wife that an extra 17" will be awesome! For those who want to ask but hate to ask, I don't mind discussing. I made an excel sheet and did a full calculation of everything in the room. My project came to approx 4500 without my gaming computer setup and 5400 with the gaming computer. This includes EVERYTHING down to the screws that I bought for the screen and the furniture, wires, projector, and even the bar I made from IKEA hackers site with the alcohol, & etc. I will say that I ran my own CAN lighting and wires, and everything else that required elbow grease. So if you are going to pay someone this may run into the hundreds, if not more.

While it pales in comparison to many of these amazing home theaters, here is mine.

The first pic, without flash, is an accurate representation of how the room looks to my eyes:

This thread is a great place to get inspiration from! I've been lurking arond on AVS for years to get ideas for my own project. After fours years my HT was finished this spring. Here are some pics:









This picture shows speakers behind the Seymour 130" screen. Main loudspeakers are my 25 yrs old DALI 40. Center is a DIY, based on Dali and ScanSpeak loudspeakers. Two 15" Boscmann subs and one Maelstrom 21".



This is taken from the tech-room behind the HT. Most of my equipment is placed in the rack.



This is the DIY-doorlock on the sliding door entrance. It keeps the door completely sealed and works great to prevent sound leakage.





Here's a couple of building pics:
