Vik - What processor are you going to use for this 9.2 channel system? Are you also making the investment in the two QSC DSP-322ua needed to make everything run? Is Shawn Byrne doing your calibration? Also, I see on the blueprints that there is a planned masking system for the front screen....are you going with the manual "pop-in" masking panels or the automated Carada masking system with the Seymour frame?
Everything is looking great! Considering the room was a shell four weeks ago, you may be enjoying a movie in your completed theater by Christmas! (very jealous!!)
Keep up the great work guys.
Thanks TmcG. Since the release date of the newer version of the Seaton Catalyst active triamplified surrounds was tentative i became impatient and purchased the P6V for surround duties. For the LCR i did not choose the P6 because i wanted something with the Power of P815 or P860 ( since i sometimes tend to go crazy and listen at extremely high output levels) with a price which fits my budget.
This is when i discovered the Catalyst 12C Internally triamplified 2000 watts each with two 12 inch woofers and 8 inch midrange. after doing a couple of demos i loved how they performed for both movies and music and how they tame even the largest of rooms with ease with amazing clarity and dynamics,( My first Demo was in a 40x30x10 room) More info about them http://www.seaton-sound-forum.com/post/Product-Listing-Availability-Status-and-Pricing-5999687
Again this is way overkill for my space but i wanted to have a lot of headroom.
The processor I am thinking of getting is the Denon 4520CI. Regarding the QSC 322 i would love to have a pair of them and i guess if i do then Shawn may be the person i may have to get to calibrate them since its so complicated. My biggest issue is spreading out my theater budget evenly since i have other things to purchase. I am going for pop out manual masking because i will rarely watch 16:9 content in the theater so i don't see why i need to spend extra for automatic. Hopefully i can get something going by Christmas but i have not yet made up my mind regarding the seats and projector so it may take a while.
