for whatever reason, I love this. Are those leather covered walls or just dark paint/stain?? have anymore pictures??
post #3 of 82
Yeah, I agree. There's something seriously good about this little space. Looks comfy, complete and perfect for movies with a few friends.

The walls certainly look different with the lights on or off. They look tan coloured with light.

Well done !

Tom.

Looks like Windows Media Center 2005.

Looks great to me. A name? How about "Orange-You-Here-For Home Theater"?

Have you ever wished your front side speakers were 5 inches shorter or that you could mount your screen 5 inches higher?

I think small, cozy, well dressed spaces like this create a very special world for movie watching.

-walls are just paint with matte paint

- the subwoofer is behind the couch in the corner (forget to write it in the setup its a velodyne 12")

the walls are concrete the roof is the same color as the walls

-the effect is exactly what i was looking for with lights on 100% looks very bright the pictures looks orange its because of the camera filter , and with lights off you can see anything completly dark no bounce light at all.

- the screen its a MDF panel paint with Behr silverscreen paint, get the advice from the forums

by the way this is an apartment .

Your set up looks great. I want to turn my master bedroom into my home theater - it's about the same size as your theater room, maybe a little bigger. Anyhow, please excuse my ignorance as I'm new to the board, but what type of projector are you using?

Hi Reaven your room looks awesome. Very similar to mine actually. Did you add any extra ventilation for your projector?? I am building that part of my room right now.

And I think after looking at yours I may need to put some little soffet lights in..it looks awesome on yours.

am using 2 computer like fans 60mm fans, for my projector model 1 fan in the back for intake and one on the side for exhaust . i was going to built a thermostat sensor but drop the idea when found hard time looking for the components. my fans are running 24/7. almost a year in june without problems.

it runs so cool that when turn it off the internal fans keep running like few seconds only..

hey NeoOiler what you use to make your design drawing , sketch it ?? i use visio but i like the perspective look what you use ?
post #17 of 82
I used Sketchup for the first few, then Autocad for the rest. I do autocad as a profession so I am more comfortable with it.

i was thinking about raised my rears speakers over the couch back and a little further from it??
post #19 of 82
yes you want those rear speakers higher.
post #20 of 82
For your opening in the soffet, did you just use drywall for the bottom or plywood??

Thanks

i know but what can I do make a complete raiser or just two boxes for the speakers ?
post #22 of 82
Great job on the room, I know pictures sometimes come out darker than seeing it in real life but It seems to have a great atmosphere. Two thumbs up.
post #23 of 82
very cool, I hope to achieve a similiar effect in my small space (smaller screen for one) but great space and I love the colors.

whats a good way to rise the rear speaker ??

need options, make a wood box individually or a big raiser in the back of the couch ?
post #25 of 82
just boxes i would think... if you build a riser for the couch, then your speakers are still the same level as they were before (relatively)

the problem i was thinking is that the floor already have a rug if i build a simple wood box i dont think it will sit flat on the floor dont know if you know what i mean , i have to in someway make the box to have some weight beside the speaker because if not the speaker will fall from the box.

i hate sand its a mess so fill the box with sand is not an option.
so......?

Screw the box to the wall. shouldn't take many to keep it rigid enough to keep it from falling.
