I returned home Sunday from a two week vacation in China and was driving past The Savoy. I dropped in to give my family a demo. My wife and five kids enjoyed the theater. Thanks for your hospitality, David!

And on another note, do you really need crown amps to drive the 212's / S8's or is it just a nice to have? I'm tight on budget so need to make some choices on where I'll save.
I have 100K total budget. ~55K is spent building the room (room w/in a room, DD + GG, communicating doors w/ custom jam & stops). Then I have budgeted 5K for chairs and 5K for absorption diffusion panels. That leaves me 35K for everything else (speakers, projector, screen, subs, etc). I know I'll need one amp (probably just an inuke) so I can have side surrounds for each row, but I'm hoping to use an AVR for the other channels (something like the Denon x6300H with 140W for 11 channels).
Having two stacked pairs of subs would be my preference.
Regarding the amps, you need to decide what your maximum SPL requirements are and go from there. All the systems I spec are designed for playing Blu-ray concerts at concert levels. I also ensure the system has 3 dB of peakroom. This takes a lot of power and requires that the surrounds don't become the weak spot.
, I am working on several package deals with various vendors. I can provide a package price that includes the following items. PM to discuss.
JVC Projector with Chief mount
Seymour AV or Seymour Screen Excellence Screen
Acoustic Treatment Plan
GIK Acoustics room treatments
Yamaha CX-A5100 processor
Samsung UDB-K8500 UHD Blu-ray Player
QSC PLD Amps
XLR snake from processor to amps
20 amp Isolation Transformer that can provide 500 amps for 1/2 cycle, 240 amps for 1 second, and 70 amps for 10 seconds (requires just a single 30 amp circuit to theater)
20 amp power sequencer with IP control
Middle Atlantic Rack
Audio and Video calibration
