The Arthouse" (fomerly "The Grindhouse") - Planning and Construction Thread - Page 10

post #271 of 288
Hi Rob,

Like all the others, GREAT BUILD!!! You have saved me from much headache and I have not even begun.

My dimensions are 10.5x17 with 9' ceiling height and in a basement with three concrete walls and and a 2x4 drywall wall. One of the concrete walls has a window that I will be covering. I will attach some pictures.

What did you use for bass traps? I have purchased the Klipsch THX Ultra2 and will have a very serious bass situation. Also, as if you cannot guess, I am going to plagiarize the hell out of your design so consequently I will need to modify the speaker housing in order to accommodate a larger square speaker. Anyone care to chime in here with suggestions?

Would it be a bad idea acoustically to place all the speakers (front) starting left, sub, center, sub, right (read: on the same horizontal plane directly below the screen)? Or aesthetically?

Great article. I think your room is at the top of all the rooms I've seen here. I did have one question. On the birch panels, I assume it is birch plywood. How did you finish the exposed edges?
Again, Gerat build.

Robb,

Congrats on making EH!!
Did they send a photographer for the finished photos, or did you provide all of the photos?

Either way a nice article, your theater turned out great!

One question - could you point me to the details for that acoustic panel on your back wall?

Like everyone else I am drooling over your handiwork!

Is the 108" screen dimension a diagonal or horizontal measurement?

Thanks in advance...

Thank you!

They have an iron-on birch edging that you can get at home depot to make the edges look great. You iron it on and trim the excess.

These were photos that I took. It's not easy taking pictures in a mostly black room!

The acoustic panel on the back wall was made from a light wood frame with thin wood as the frames. I stuffed the inside with an OC703 panel and then wrapped it with the exact material Berkline used on my seats. I ordered it direct through my dealer.

Here are the exact details

Drool is a good thing, as long as it's not on the suede seats!

The screen is a 108" diagonal measurement.

Amazing theater! I am new to the site and have just started the planning phase. With so many basement theaters on this site, it was nice to see someone else building on the 2nd floor like myself. I have a 19L x 16.5W x 8' H bonus room that will be a dedicated setup. Seems like i will have the room to have a similar setup to yours but with larger columns (Id like the M60 towers). Any pics of how your Center channel is mounted? does anyone hit their head when up on the riser on the side of the room? 10' soffit + 1' riser = 6' ceiling there?

Thanks so much for this thread, as it has given me many ideas!

Cheers,

Mike

Excuse my late entry, and I am guessing this may never get to you, but could you provide the sketchup file you created? If not, I understand!

AMAZING work!

It been ages since I looked at this thread. Thanks for all of your kind words!

The theater is still kicking and going strong. Other than some equipment changes for media consumption, the original setup is still going famously (knock on suede Berklines).

Quick thanks. This thread has been hugely helpful for what I'm planning. Hoping to emulate some of it in mine.
