After 6 months of planning/CAD, and another 6 months of construction, not to mention concurrent perusing of the many inspirational threads here, I'm posting the results of converting my second floor bonus room, 11.5’ x 17’ x 8’. More talk later, first have a peek.
Equipment console with AV processor, CD player, BD player, and BassQ processor
Full screen 16x9
2.40:1 Wide screen
Two of the four new HSU subwoofers. When the screen is retracted into the soffit, the windows (and removable plugs) are visible.
The motorized screen is programmed to stop at 16x9 and 2.40:1 aspect ratios (same width), and can roll down enough to achieve a 2.7:1 aspect ratio--not that it will be needed. The picture below shows how the screen rides behind an 8' flat acoustic panel which masks the bottom, and a pair of ASC half round bass traps on either side which hide the screen tensioners.
Shows the right side wall, and the lighted stairs. The surround speakers are behind the grill cloth frames.
The door, right smack in the middle of the side wall first reflection points, has a Perf-Sorber panel, with cutout for the handle. There is another such panel on the opposite wall.
Why I call it the Deadwood.
Custom carved sign over door
I should probably mention that, IMHO, the room sounds great, and the projected picture really impresses me.
