Carolina Jones and the Theater Temple
Thank you to everyone that spends time on these threads. I especially appreciate those that have not only documented their entire build, but who have also stuck around to give advice to the next class of theater builders. After many false starts (including a change of address), I am finally ready to begin.
My space will come from an attic that the builder gave us the option to convert into a third floor (i.e. large room). The entire room is open to the stairs. It also unfortunately has a mechanical closet in the middle-side of the room. I will be closing the room off to give a final usable dimension of about 25'4" x 12'.
No big sound proofing effort will be made... I do not have the time or money.
Equipment / Setup:
7.2 Receiver: Onkyo TX-NR626
Projector: Panosonic AE8000
LCR: 3 x Elusive 1099s
Surrounds: 4 x Volt 6s
Subs: 2 x Marty Cube / Stereo Integrity 18s
Screen: 120" Seymour Center Stage XD acoustically transparent screen / false wall
I am going to attempt a baffle wall, even though I really have no clue what I am doing
Hopefully I do not butcher the sound in the process. The plan is to place the LCRs as close as possible to the recommended spacing, at ear level. Then I'll add one sheet of 1/2" MDF and two sheets of 1/2" drywall.
Current / Original Plan:
