So finally back at work again on the theater. We had a baby on 5/1 so that has slowed progress down considerably. I brought in some help to get things moving again. Since my last update I have the line sets ran for the mini split HVAC, hat channel and clips installed, finished insulating interior walls, ran all the speaker wire, electrical is roughed in and am getting drywall in either Friday or Saturday. I rushed so much that i hope i am not missing anything before the drywall goes up. However i am lucky that i have full access above the lid in room after drywall and have a 2 foot crawl space below the floor of the theater as there used to be a small pool resting in the middle of a room on a big cement slab. This gives me the opportunity to run additional lines for electrical and/or speaker or other cabling from either above or below the theater in case i forgot anything.
Some Room Info:
Room: 15'7"W x 23'6" L x roughly 8-9' H pre wall covering
This is a main floor theater. I implemented my old materials into a basement pseudo 114" theater/tv room.
DD and GG has been installed and completed. Per John and Ted from Soundproofing company i was told to not worry about channel and clips on the lid because of the attic space above and adjacent to the room on 1 side and outside walls on the other 3 sides above the theater.
Screen; Seymour 120-130"
PJ: Leaning towards Sony HW50ES but havent made the buy yet.
Receiver: undecided but will be 11.2 ready.
Speakers: Polk RTIA9 7.2 but will be wired for 11.2
Sub: SVS 12PB and polk DSW12
Rack:Middle Atlantic 7 Space KD Rack Frame
As you can see my earlier posts the room was 100% complete as a family room. I have since tore down the entire log siding from the interior.
Here are a couple humble sketchup models. I dont have the riser incorporated yet and this was just an early render so nothing set in stone.
Front of room to the left and right side exterior wall with 2 6'x6' windows which made this a fun build to work around.
