Hey guys. For you guys with 2 rows of seats, how much higher are the raised rear seats in your setup?

There are a lot of factors involved in this. No way to give you a clear cut answer. Screen height, distance between rows, chair height, etc., all play a role in determining overall riser height.

If I remember correctly, my riser ended up being about 11", and I wouldn't have complained if it had been a little higher.

This link will give you a nice starting point.

I build my riser out of 2x6 but the back chairs are taller than the front so I've got 9-10".

I built mine with 2x12's. My ceilings in my basement are not that high. I have a 106" screen and anything lower than 11.5" the back row could not see the bottom of the screen. In my theater build thread I have some pics of my riser.

There is a riser calculator in the Dedicated Theater construction area.

Thanks guys. The reason I'm asking is because I'm thinking of trying to stuff some subs in horn arrangements under the riser as has been done by some of the other guys here. I'll check the calculators. Thanks!
