post #211 of 227


Love this. This is exactly what I want behind my last row. The power outlet... Where did the feed from from ? Did you plan for it?
Is this hollow ? I'd love to see another pic.

Of course I planned for it.



this is a little out of focus but you can see what I am doing

Big,

Any details on that back bar? Dimensions and how you built it?

Did it get wrapped in just sheet rock or some sort of paneling?

Thanks,

CLE

This is what I wanted to do... but the wife-veto came into play on the space I was allowed to use!

What is the height of the bar framing?

bar tops are usually about 42 inches so just subtract whatever you plan for the top.

So the Bar Top is 18" and I see overhang on the front and back - how much overhang is there? Basically asking what is the depth of the framing underneath the bar top?

I think I did one inch overhang on the front and 1 1/2 to 2 on the back, My rule of thumb is just do what looks right.

The other dimension was based on what it took to fit the ductwork.

Another Question - What kind of screws/size did you use and how far apart did you put them in?

Planning on doing the MDF/2x2s - Want to make sure they aren't going to fall down smile.gif

I used about 10 different screws in the project but I can tell you that they were all pointy.

Big,
After reading thousands of posts I'm getting ready build a very simple home theater.
I have a very similar space and I'm using this build as my inspiration. My room is slightly narrower at 12 ft. I have read in these forums that I should place the LCR speakers approximately 3.5 ft. from the wall. Because of the narrow room I think I'm going to go with bookshelf speakers for LR (maybe SVS ultras.) I also plan to wire for 1 or 2 subs in front and plan to build a slightly longer stage. Do I wire my speaker and rg6 wire to come through the stage or should they go to the screen wall? I plan on building a simple stage approx. 4 inches high.
Many Thanks!
RV

wall, above the stage, keep the wires out of the way when building the stage and filling it with sand.

Great stuff... right on man! biggrin.gif

I definitely appreciate the detail and knowledge that goes into these posts. I've been poking through the whole Dedicated Theater forum and they are slowly giving me the motivation to take on a build. On top of the motivation there is a lot of knowledge to be gained here -- I feel like I'm somewhat handy and could do an ok amateur job, but all these little details will really save you time in doing it right the first time/save frustration/make it come out a little more professional.
