I am in the beginning phases of designing a house, complete with a theater room. Breaking ground will be a few years away yet, but I’m trying to get a design now that I can continually modify and start the planning and budgeting. A theater room is going to be high priority in this new house. It will either be in a bonus room over the garage (most likely), or in a basement. I’ve got a design Ive come up with for the theater room that is 22x30, with 2 rows of seating, and a bar behind the 2nd row. Movies 25%, gaming15%, music, sports, and entertaining 60%.
With all that being said, I’m curious to see what everyone’s thoughts are on the “best” DIY gear. If you had a clean slate, what would you want your ideal set up to look like? I’ve been researching the site a lot over the past few months, and there’s a ton of information scattered which makes it difficult to search through.
LCR: DIYSG 1099s
Would 1299s have more output and overall sound “better”? Titans? HTM’s?
Surrounds and Atmos : HTM-10s
Would HTM-12s be better? Volts? 4 or 6 speaker Atmos?
Subwoofers: HST-18 MKIII in ported enclosures
Would FI HT-3 be a better option? I would like to make 2 dual enclosures to resemble JTR captivator 4000s
Amps: iNUKE 12000s or Sinbosen FP20000 for subs, Emotiva for mains and surrounds.
