EDIT: new pictures added.
Well after six years of waiting, some extended family has moved out and I get my basement back.
We have a geodesic dome house so the footprint is a little unusual, but I am determined to have a theater / play room for the family. The daylight basement is already finished with two bedrooms, bathroom, living area and an unfinished kitchen space. Check out the crude sketchup drawing below.
The plan is:
120" DIY screen painted on the wall - CHECK!!
BenQ W6000 projector
Unknown Pre/Pro with balanced outputs (Probably Marantz, Outlaw or the new Emo coming out)
Mackie HR824 L&R self amplified speakers
Mackie HR626 C
Mackie HR624 surrounds
Sub will probably be a Spendor (free from my brother) or a Mackie HRS120
The layout is definitely difficult to work with and I'm sure I'll need some acoustical treatment on the wall with the couch for sound reflections. Seating distance to the corner of the sectional is 13-14'.
I'm currently running the speaker cable and balanced audio cable in the wall and into the closet under the stairs. I'll get some pictures soon.
