I have been collecting parts for the last several years and been dealing with some waxing and waning motivation (2 young kids, busy job, marital stress/obligations etc) but I am finally forging ahead working on a semi-dedicated home theater with (hopefully) a nice set of speakers going in.
LCR will be custom cabinets, custom passive crossovers (still need to sort out actually doing that), and will house acoustic elegance TD12Ms with Apollo upgrade and Beyma TPL-150Hs. I have the cabinet design complete and need to start cutting the wood.
The six surrounds will be custom cabinets, passive crossovers, and will contain acoustic elegance TD8Ms with Apollo and Peerless XT25TG30s in SEOS 6 waveguides.
The six Atmos in ceiling speakers I am currently working on are Volt 6 v2 in some custom cabinets.
I have 4 SI HST18s I will put in some custom sealed cabinets.
Electronics will mostly be an Emotiva XMC-2 (got in on the upgrade price which was nice) some older emotiva amplifiers, and a couple of speaker power amplifiers from Seaton (SP2-8K I think)
Attached are some pictures of the room. Luckily I have an attic above and behind this room so everything is somewhat accessible. I have run 12g wire to the LCR positions, 14g to the surrounds and I still need to run 16g to the Atmos positions. I ran 10g to the subwoofer locations. With each speaker run I also included coax and cat6 just in case.
