Show me your COMPLETED Theater! - Page 29

post #841 of 1046

There are 4 18" CAT subs across the front (between the Left and Center and the Right and Center mains).  In addition, each front main has a 12" sub.. then there are 4 other 12" subs in the columns to even out the room and get rid of bass nodes.  Each 18" sub is driven by a 700 watt amp and each 12" has a 250 watt amp.  No compression at all in the bass.  Scarry thing happen and on explosions and big thuds in movies the room pressurizes in ways that make you jump.  Yet at the same time, I can play 2 channel music and it images well enough to pluck out where people are on the stage.

This theater was designed in-house for our new showroom.  I designed the layout of the room and speaker layout.  The room design was modified by CAT and CinemaTech after their acousticians reviewed the plans and we went thru a few iteration of review/modify before all parties were happy.  With a final plan we proceeded to knock down walls and reconfigure the space.  The walls are acoustically treated and fabric-ed over.  I did all equipment installation and wiring and programming of the control system (Crestron).  I have detailed step by step pictures if anyone is interested...

Of coarse we are interested. Haha. That's why we all come here to learn and share.
post #844 of 1046
Yes, please post the construction pics (maybe in a new build thread). I know we would all like to see how it all came together. If you have a plan to post that would be great as well, or at least discuss the room dimensions with some info about seating distances, screen size, etc. Looks great!

Here is the equipment for the theater room.  Main highlights are the entire rack of amps for that one room, Theta Casablanca is the main Pre/pro and the Kaleidescape and Prima Cinema servers for content.  There's also another room of equipment stuffed in here plus a two channel system.

I'm not actually putting in a 'true' theater, but I did a little mock-up with a temp wall and it just looks to narrow. So, understandably I'm concerned and haven't moved forward yet with the project.

Rick, my room is 13' wide with a 103" screen and RF-83's. When I move to an AT screen, I should be able to go between 120" and 130" screen. Hope that helps.

I was hoping to get the width of ttby58b's room, as it does look narrow and if I have a width, I can get a sense of proportion to my space. I'm not so much interested at this point of the width of the screen, but thanks for sharing.

^^^^ Nice! I made the cut too! There are a few theaters that I would love to see finished Maybe one day they will post again? Speaking of that.....Where are your pics? They are gone.

Great job with that space.........................wink.gif

Here is my setup. The acoustic panels have since been mounted on the walls, just haven't taken new pics. Room is 13' x 19' with 10' ceilings.





post #855 of 1046
This is our little getaway.
Never 100% complete, we need to build a new screen next. It will forever evolve.
The room is 13' wide x 16' long x 8' high.
My wife sits in a wheelchair in the "sweet spot" next to the couch..
The room has individual analog stereo and solid state 7.2 systems.

Wow David your room is stunning!
I wish I had not stumbled upon this page.
Far and away the nicest fully enclosed room in this size range I have seen.

Our acoustic treatment is a work in process. So far I have hit some first reflection points and added some bass trapping.
Time to pickup a mic, preamp, and REW,
I really like how you blended your acoustic treatments so seamlessly into the design.
Our stereo gear is low-end, primarily DIY and second hand.
I try to listen to an album a week in the evening. It is my form of meditation.

Do you have a build site?
I am very interested to learn more about your room.
Thanks,
-Bill

David,

What can you tell me about the low cabinets underneath the screen? I want to do something similar in my HT. Are they custom, DYI, or off-the shelf? They look really slick!

Thanks,
Schlemstar

(see my build thread in the non-dedicated theater forum) "Schlemtheater II - Attack of the Arch Bar."

Thanks,
I have watched those interviews and have been reading lots of articles.
Our room certainly sounds better with the first steps we have taken.
I still want to do some measurements as I am sure there is plenty of opportunity for improvement
primarily with bass response. I'm also looking at the miniDSP + REW for bass EQ.

Fortunately sound isolation is not a problem in our case. Our room is actually a free standing box.
Except at a couple of points the walls and ceiling do not contact other walls or the 9 foot high joists of the floor above.

Hey I made the cut! tongue.gif

Thanks for pulling this together. It is indeed a bit depressing how many build threads just get dropped. I myself almost lost interest in documenting 2.0 after it garnered far less interest than my first thread. But after all the advice and ideas I've stolen from the forum, I felt that I at least owed the community some finished shots, and I'm glad I did.

I guess if you guys see a newish thread that's lumbering along, maybe pop in and post a few kind words or advice. I'm sure the OPs would appreciate the encouragement.

snowkarver,

Your beautiful room is exactly the one I was thinking of when I added "fully enclosed" to my complement about DavidK442's room.

Your room looks so inviting and is so well done. I am at a loss for words.
post #861 of 1046
Here is mine. Suggestions for improvement are always welcome :-)

Thank you Rick,
The wide angle lens makes the room look larger.
We are using the room more often than I expected.
