I have partially finished basement with the great room of about 27 x 30. I have two unfinished areas one of which I want to convert to dedicated home theater.
My wishes for the home theater are following
1. sound isolation
2 good sound and large screen, attempt to implement dolby atmos
3 i enjoy 3d
4 30% sports, 70% movies/documentaries
Gears I have- is used in entertainment room that exists but I am not looking to bring them to dedicated theater except chairs.
I am budget conscious, therefore my priorities are
1. build good sound isolated room, 2. invest in speakers 3. invest in PJ/screen
My desired gadgets are
1. seymour 140 inch wide AT screen
2. 3d capable epson or other projector
3 klipsch thx ultra 2 speakers and pair it with atmos speakers 7.1.4 setup
4 Yamaha or marantz atmos capable avr for processing

I plan sound isolation per Ted White company advise.
I am not much hands on, but I do want to learn and do some of it myself. I am enrolling into basic woodworking tool classes etc.. (waiting my employer to pickup my tuition
. I came up with two plans each with distinct advantages and disadvantages. I dont care much about star ceiling, soffit, stage, and I want to avoid riser building- thus keeping the cost down. I am quickly learning sketchup so should be able to create 3d plans.
I have put two plans together on graph paper. I want to know which plan would be a good idea..
