After years of waiting, got the approval
Its time for me start building a dedicated home theater in my basement. You guys inspired me to do this project & I'm super excited.
As part of this I'm completing my basement 1200 Sq ft. Theater will be 17.2 X 14 ft, 8 ft height (approx).Equipment list:
I already bought all these equipments
Receiver - Denon AVR-X4000
Projector - Panasonic PTAE8000U
Bluray - OPPO BDP-103
Speakers (7.2) - Polk RTIA9, CSI5, FXI A4, RTA3
SubWoofer - two PA 120
Rack - Custom
Screen - ??
I'm planning to have two rows of seating with 4 theater seating on raiser & 3 in front (may be a couch ) . Planning to do Star painted ceiling with black lights.
I'm going to insulate all walls & ceiling.I'm not too much concerned about sound proofing since the room above is my office & only i use the office room. No light automation planned.Open Questions:
1. Screen size? - I ideally want 120" 16:9. Looks like room height is my issue. I don't think i will be able to fit in 120" . Room height is 93" on the screen wall.
120" screen height - 67"
Cabinet for subwooferwill be 22"Soffit or stage for remaining 4" ?
I'm confused, Any suggestions? Post your thoughts.
Please help me with these open question....
I'm not good at autocad or sketchup. I'm planning to do most of the work & hire contractors when needed. I will post my progress pictures.
Framing is almost done. Still confused about to go with soffit or stage? i will not be able to match soffit height on the side wall.
This is where screen is going (on tv wall)
Entry to the theater
Front screen wall from other angle:
Raiser for back row seating - 2 X 10s . I will add OSB on top of this.
Left corner is cabinet closet: ( I will get a different picture)
