Routh Family Theater Build

I am getting quotes to have the 3rd stall of my garage converted into a media room, roughly 10x15. I already have most of the audio components, but will be going to an Atmos setup with 4 overhead speakers and upgrading the Pre/Pro. I've already gotten quotes to convert the garage and make it part of the house, but I'm not sure who to use to run the speaker wires and get the screen from. I've contacted a few companies, but I'm already having trouble getting them to come out and get me pricing. Anyone know a good A/V company that could do all the speaker runs?

What part of Houston are you in? It's so spread out here that you won't want someone coming from another part of the city and charging you for that time in traffic?

Tom,

I moved to Georgetown, north of Austin, 2 years ago. But running speaker wire is one of the easiest do-it -yourself jobs in a theater build. I would be happy to talk you through most of it if you feel up to trying to tackle this yourself. If you would like to talk, send me a PM with your contact info and your availability.

best regards,

John Dixon

Thanks for the reply. I've done the wiring myself before, but since I will be having multiple things installed, I prefer just to contract this one out.

Been a while! So, I'm still in the planning phase, and hope to make it to the construction phase sometime in 2018. So, I'm thinking of going with a 2:39:1 screen and doing acoustically transparent, but I'm trying to figure out how. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

If you are doing an AT screen, and the room is 10x15', then why not simply do a 16x9 screen since you are width limited anyways?

A single upper sliding mask would accommodate any screen ratio from 16x9 to 2.4 scope images. You could lace in AT screen material into a frame,
simply over-sized, and create the screen's upper and side borders with velvet wrapped boards. The upper mask could slide up and down, to create the
fourth border.

Thats actually a really good idea! I got stuck on the 2:39:1 screen after doing too much research and came across anamorphic lenses. Then looking into it more, I unsold myself, lol.

I'm still in the process of getting quotes - has been a slow process. We held off on the project after Harvey - wanted to let those that needed contractors get their work done first.

Are you just going from a TV to a projector in the room, so no audio wiring too? If you have attic access, you could probably do a lot yourself. After dealing with some of these A/V places, I think I'm better off installing most of this stuff myself.

We got hit really hard by Harvey as well and I lost all my AV gear in the flood. So now we are in a new house and I'm putting everything together again. Since this house has completely backed out media room, I got the idea of putting a projector instead of the TV, like I've done in the past.

Yes, it will have full audio as well, which is not an issue but the major difficulty that I'm having is installing the pj and running power to it. This house is a 1.5 story so even though there is easy attic access for the floor below, media room is on the 1.5 floor and the attic access to is very difficult. Even with the large ladder I had hard time getting up there due to very small space.

I emailed couple of AV installers from FB and they are ridiculously expensive. I'll probably end up just running wires via wire raceway close to the baseboard instead of going through the attic. It won't be as pretty but since the room is completely black and raceway will be black as well, it shouldn't be too bad.

I’m sorry to hear about your house. We are in Mont Belvieu, 30 miles East of downtown, and we were fortunate not to flood. Our detention pond behind my house came close to cresting, but thankfully it didn’t.

I’ve run into a lot of snags with A/V installers - they aren’t very responsive, they charge too much, and some of the materials quoted are low quality. Plus, finding one that will work with a GC is not easy. I’m just trying to get the room built out and will probably slowly build it the way I want. Let me know what you decide to do. I will let you know if I find someone that does try to overcharge.

I’m finally about to start my build - we ended up deciding on our attic space above our garage instead of the 3rd stall of our garage. The room will be 14x18 and will have some pony walls. I know the pony walls aren’t ideal, but it will allow more front wall space to spread my speakers apart and allow for 2 rows of 4 theater seats. I will start posting pictures as we go. I. Going with a JVC 4k projector, 100” silver ticket screen, power recline HT seats from 4seating.com (they offer back row seats that are taller, so no risers), and adding 4 overhead Klipsch speakers to match my others. Check my signature, just upgraded to the Marantz AV7704 and added the Emotiva XPA-7 - so I have 12 200 watt channels (only need 11). I can’t wait!

Yeah! Some of these installers are ridiculously priced! Trust me I had my share of them come out to my place! And ai have a home theater background!! So much BS they throw at ya!! Better doing it yourself!’ Save yourself a lot of money. I shopped around for sales, clearance items, and did my research! Even built my own wall! Took me around a year to complete it! But I finished it last May!!!

That’s awesome!

If my room was a clean build that didn’t require structural supports or things relocated, I would most likely do most of the construction. I got multiple quotes and have come to a reasonable price with a local and respected contractor. All said and done, with construction, seating, and additional equipment, my room will come out at 35-40k. I’m budgeting 5k extra, just to add some cushion.

Alright, it’s finally time! We signed paper work with a contractor and plan to start construction next week, pending permits. Will be posting some pictures as we go. I just purchased the JVC-DLA RS540U for my projector, going to be putting in a 100” Seymour av electronic masking screen 16x9 to 2:35:1 and will be adding 4 Atmos speakers to what is in my signature. Super excited!

The first part of construction has started - the plumbers came and relocated the water heaters to over the 3rd stall of the garage. We have the city inspection Monday and then the electrician and PHVAC will be coming in to run the electrical and move the A/C lines and vent hood. Framing has a tentative start of next Thursday the 18th - there will be beams installed across the top of the room to support the roof supports in the room. I'm excited!

I got my JVC RS540U projector in this Thursday and I'm ready to get this baby setup - still looking at a month or so, maybe less. I still have not bought a screen, but will do that next week.

Anyone know how I can edit the thread name? I've never had to do that before and can't seem to find it.

More pictures to come!

I would wait on hanging that projector till you agree done or mostly done. They say if you put it up early work on the theater slows or even stops. Kind of that way for me, but also lack of cash right now.

Glad to here work hard started. I am envious.

The projector won’t be mounted until the room is completed. Having an installer mount it, install the Atmos speakers and hang the projector.

I set it up in my office to check it all works, but it is back in its box calling my name, lol.

Picked out carpet today and home theater seating - going with a Seatcraft multimedia sectional with 8 seats - 5 power reclining.

Which model did you go with. Are putting it in and L or V orientation?

The Seatcraft Entrada model from 4Seating.com. The orientation and pictures are attached.

I really wanted to do 2 rows of theater seating, which I still could, but the front row would be about 9' from the 100" screen. After looking for weeks at these and going back and forth, my wife made a simple decision for me, lol. Since the space will also be used for major sporting events with friends and family over, the sectional makes more sense.

Thanks, that looks nice. If I was to push my room out to 20'-10" I could go with the L-5 with two chair fold down tables. I may look more in to this and see what the wife thinks.

Framing is complete! Room measures at 17'x12'8', with the back 6' of the room going to 9.5' to go around the downstairs A/C unit. See the pictures of the conversion process and the setup downstairs that will be moving up to the new room.

I will be ordering the Seatcraft Grenada Media Sectional in L5 configuration with an extra chair with a fold down console from 4Seating.com. Also getting a 100" Seymour AV Electronic Masking fixed screen in Glacier White. Can't wait!!!
