Show me your COMPLETED Theater! - Page 27

post #781 of 1046
Here's my theater room I just finished - well, I do have a few minor things to still work on but it's pretty much complete and I have been using it and loving it and have been waiting a long time to post it on this thread so here it is. Got some good pics with the lighting just right in a few, while a little dark in others but will try to get some better shots later when I consider it 100%, minus future upgrades of course! smile.gif Going to start a post construction thread soon for the Maddog Theater with other pics, specs, lessons learned, etc.

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.

We've sold our home and are in the process of tearing this down for the next theater, which should be completed in about 6 weeks.

You are tearing that down?! Can't imagine what you will replace it with... It looks nice & seems to be setup nice for good sound. What are you plans for the new one?
post #786 of 1046
I think I can finally declare mine finished !

The new one will be a bit wider (by about 1.75 feet) and (unfortunately) lower (current theater is 9 fee new one is 8), and using a different company to design it. Most important difference is that it will be on the 2nd floor so am having to do lots of things ti "try" to keep the sound contained.

Hi Chuck,

Thanks ! I ended up getting the Procellas but it was a very close thing between them and the Seatons. In the end it came down to form factor more than anything else. The sound quality is amazingly similar and stunningly good !!

There's lots more photos in my thread (link in my sig).

I'm following your "No 4" with great interest. Are you off to CEDIA this year ?

Cheers,

It's 170" diag for 2.35, but the full screen is 3:1 and 17' wide.

Cheers
post #796 of 1046
That is big! Very nice! Why 3:1? I have never seen that aspect in any theaters before.

Im guessing it has full masking capabilities and if you go with a 3.1, you will have a bigger 1.78 image compared if you went with 2.35/2.37. Your basically masking every input.
post #798 of 1046
I was thinking that the 16:9 image would be smaller from a CIH off of a 3:1 screen?
post #799 of 1046
Wouldn't 16x9 be smaller on a CIH 3:1? Four way masking on a 2:1 screen would give you similar image square footage between scope and 16x9, wouldn't it?

I am very curious as to why 3:1.

It was all to do with LR speaker placement. The masking system has quite a large extruded aluminium frame and so if the masking frame was at 2.35 then the speakers would have to be some distance inside this to avoid diffraction problems. I think it worked out about 3m apart, but my room is 6.4m wide and this would have been too narrow for me. I use the room a lot for music and love a wide soundstage. The next option was to put the speakers outside the masking frame at 2.35 but this was too wide. So I decided to split the difference, put the speakers pretty much right on the edge of the 2.35 image and take the screen out to 3:1 and get the masking frame out of the way.

I'm very happy with the way it's turned out !

Cheers,

My theater is about 2 weeks from being finished.

I need to wait for someone to post some pictures of a really bad theater before I post mine.

The last one is a hard one to follow.

OK, I think I'm pretty much done with my second build. It's a 2.35 setup in a 10' x 10' space.
