Where'd the time go?? Since my original thread had no activity for 14 months and I now have a deadline, it's time to start a new build thread. We are hosting Thanksgiving for my family this year (~25 people), and the theater needs to be ready by then. I am shooting for 11-1 to allow time for "testing", but will accept 11-15. Time to get crackin'!
My original design thread is still in my signature for those who care to look back at ancient history. The room is in our basement, and the rough framed dimensions are 21' 4 L x 12' 11 W x 9' H. Here are a few pics of the space as it stands today.
Yeah, those are the same pics as the original thread...
I took advantage of the theater layout service from Dennis quite a few months ago. Here's the design that I will finally be working toward. Of course I'm assuming no major changes in HT design philosophy in the last year and a half since I got these...
Entry door wall.
Opposite wall (looking through entry door).
I am very happy with the design and instructions that came with it. I know it's been said many times on this forum, but if you are struggling with the design, Dennis is a great resource.
I have 2-20 amp dedicated circuits run to the space, and have an electician friend coming over this weekend to bounce a few things off of, then the fun begins.
Since the room is already studded, I plan on clips and channel on the ceiling and walls to decouple plus DD+GG (Ted, you will be getting an email in the next few days).
Even though I haven't been working on the theater, I have kept my eyes open for good deals on equipment. Here's the list of what I have so far.
APC J10 Power Conditioner
Sony BDP-N460 Blu-ray Player
Emotiva ERM-6.2 LCR Speakers
Emotiva ERD-1 Side and Rear Surrounds
Logitech Harmony 900 Remote
Lutron Grafik Eye 3106
I will try to take as many pics as I can to document the build and share them here. As I will be doing the overwhelming majority of this work myself, I want to thank everyone in advance for answering all the questions that I will have along the way. Wish me luck, and let me know your thoughts on the space!
