Hello to anyone that would like to follow along as I build my first completely dedicated theater. Now this is not my first theater but it is however the first I have ever built from the ground up. Meaning I have a movie room currently that was an extra room that I added all the equipment and furniture to make it feel like a theater. It's around 18' x 12.5' give or take and consist of an Epson 8500 Projector, 110" diagonal 16x9 Elite screen, Denon 2809 Receiver, SVSound SCS Speakers and PB12 NSD Subwoofer. I am not planning on using any of this equipment in this new theater. This info is more for reference of where I am coming from.
Edit: I will add a few pictures of my current room later.
The new room is part of the unfinished side of my basement. I have only started studding it this week and from stud to stud is 19' in length. I will be lossing up to 2' for a false wall with an acoustically transparent screen. The width I need to check again but I believe is right at 16.5'
Room before we began the project.
Most of the studs in place. The window will be behind my screen.
I still have a lot of work left to do on the studs. Like frame in that window, figure my false wall and put up the rest of the studs. I also need to build a soffit. I have some ideas of how I plan on building it and where but will need to take some more pictures to help illustrate whats going on.
Please let me know of any suggestions or questions you may have. I should be updating this thread pretty regularly.
