Man, I am looking at your total cost for what your finished product is and I'm amazed! Great work! My cost of speakers alone is almost that amount and makes me question everything.

David,

I remember seeing your thread when you had just started. I am really impressed with how it turned out. It looks great. I'm also very happy to hear that you use it regularly. Congrats and continue enjoying your room!

VERY nice job!!

Do you find your screen large enough? I have been considering a 105-108 wide 2.35 screen but not sure if that is big enough?

Yes, still trying to convince myself to get started on a room either above garage or basement. It's only been two years!!! LOL.

I know I can get room above garage done easier, cheaper and probably by myself but with compromises such as a smaller screen. As for basement it would be way better, but cost more, take longer and I would probably have to hire it out. That's why I am still stuck and haven't done crap yet... ;(

I was planning at least 10ft away for seating distance based on what I read about the screen material on that thread. That's why I'm concerned about screen size so much as I will be watching tons of sports in 16:9, which of course would be smaller then 105wide, thinking it will be approx 80 wide by 45 high. Which would be around 92" diagonal.

If I just hit that powerball last week none of this would of been a concern of mine...smile.gif

+1! Abundant funding sure is the cure to procrastination!

I think we need an "AVSForum Team" Powerball and MegaMillions group play to win about $30k each for all our modest home theater dreams!

Let's see a build thread in the New Year!


David,

That is an interesting idea, will have to look into that more. Panels would not be to difficult to make, but wonder how hard it would be to setup the PJ to fill the screen correctly. I have been looking at the Panny or JVC lines so I can use the zoom method.

As for living without a HT, my 2 and 4 year old boys are not upset.

And sorry for the post in your thread BTW.

Wow you did a great job utilizing your space. I love the old gear it looks so cool and probably sounds awsome.

I was around the same cost of your thearter untill I bought the TV, Receiver Towers and surrounds (+$4200). But like you I also collected some gear over time, like my sub and center speaker, and my back speakers are from my old sony 5.1 receiver.

Hi David, I was re-reading your thread and saw your cabinet handles are similar to mine. I've found their length makes it very obvious if they aren't mounted level. A few practice runs have not gone well.... Any tips?

Great work on those Bass traps! I remember the difference I experienced after mine went in. You will be happy.

Nice clean work David! Congrats again.

David, I your HT is absolutely gorgeous! I love the wood accents with the black walls. Fantastic build and it just goes to show you that even if you don't have a large room to work with, you can still have a killer setup on a very modest budget.

Nice job David! I bet that room will really rock when complete.
