I need help in seating design arrangements. I may also need suggestions on sound proofing if possible now. I think it is too late. Suggestions welcome. The first floor shakes a lot even if I listen to music! I will post the photographs shortly.

If the drywall is up, it is too late to soundproof. There are a few things you could do to take the edge off but you missed out on some easy wins early on.

Looking forward to watching your progress! My man cave will feature my power rack and various meathead equipment as such. I'm interested in seeing how you balance out your Man Cave.

you asked for help on seating



counting studs it looks like the front of the riser which dictates the back of the first row seating is about 17 1/2 ft from the screen wall. It needs to be about 12-13

You are right on the money. I have loaded few more photos to show the back of the wall. Can I install stadium style seat on the back and a theater seating in the front? Will it look weird? Or there are any slim HT seating so that I can fit two rows? Mostly kids may sit in the last row and may not require big fat recliner.

there have been several theaters where the back row were traditional bolt down theater style seats which take less space and the front row are full size recliners. If you order both in all black it will help them blend together.

Any specific model or brand that you would recommend? I am not looking for expensive seating.
I have the dimension of the riser. I am planning to install three rows. Two on riser and one below.
The riser is not a perfect rectangle. One corner is sliced (Entrance).


156" is the bottom
95" top (behind the bar)


I will draw a picture and upload it tomorrow.

I have no hands on experience with bolt down seating but Snickers1 of Falcon screens has some in his theater.

I've worked with this vendor and Alan answers questions over on the Theater accessories forum.

Can you please suggest a low power LED rope light? I tried 5050 RGB light placed in a crown molding on the top of my ceiling. The blue light gets reflection on the ceiling also even when it is dimmed all the way down.
