I am finishing my basement and as part of it I am setting up a home theater room. The room is 17 x 11 x 8 unfinished. It will be a dedicated home theater room no lighting from outside. I plan to mainly watch movies and sports on this screen. So far I have figured out I have no idea what I'm doing. So I thought I would start a thread to detail out the design, and to start asking questions. So I have put together the diagram below to start. My screen will be opposite the 5 x 3 closet, where I am planning on putting my equipment. I am planning on sound proofing the room doing the room within a room (hat tip to BigMouthinDC).
So the first questions I have is for the sound proofing. I have a foundation wall as shown at the bottom of the drawing (the dashed green line). It continues about 2 ft on the screen wall. Do I need to sound proof these walls? The second question is my closet. I was planning on having access to the components from the room so to put like a glass cabinet front on the wall between the room and the closet. If I do this it would obviously be a big hole in the sound proofing. If I do this how would I handle sound proofing? or should I forget about this and just access my components from the closet door? Thanks for your help on this, I've gotten a lot of great information already from these forums.
