Current status (as of last night).

Starting to mark out speaker & spotlight locations, need to move a few pipes / air conditioning tubes around before the isolation / plasterboard goes on, but generally looking good.

You can see a cut out in the floor (which managed to miss the underfloor heating) which will be the line to carry power to the electric seats. That is 440cm back from the far wall, which will be 4m back from the screen - which is my MLP. You can see the stone flooring starts at 623cm back.

Speakers and spotlights will be installed in niches built using the sound proof plasterboard, isolation & sound proofing layer so that we don't have to cut any holes in it once it's finished.

Will keep the updates coming...

I’m just seeing this discussion - but saw your other thread on 4 way masking. What did you find when looking for options? Curious what conclusions you came up with- other than Stewart being pricey (which it is!). Thanks

Update:

Attached are the renders that I have given to my general contractor to inform them how to finish the space.

Unfortunately, the 9 ft high basement will have a final ceiling height lower than anticipated, partly due to installations and partly because the decoupling adds 5cm or so to the depth. Final ceiling height across the basement will be 2.40m (this is the height of the soffits in the cinema area). Star ceiling will start 5cm higher and extend to 2.65m at the top of the slope by the projector.

I reached the conclusion that I had to go and physically see these screens to decide. The remaining choices are Screen Research and DT technologies. Key considerations are the depth of the top framing (as the projector is slightly above the top of the screen and I want no shadow) and ease of programming. I am completing the basement, likely including the projector before I decide on the size too.

Incidentally, one benefit of the reduced ceiling height is that I will now have space to conceal any projector in the ceiling, including the Z1 or VW5000

Gorgeous renders. Can't wait to see the final product. Especially interested in your screen choice (size/masking) and projector.

What are you using for control?
