could you still do cofered ceilings with 9' ceilings or is that considered too low?

Probably depends on how many rows of seating you will have. I think a second row would seem pretty cramped.

On the edge of Murfreesboro in the Blackman area here. We'll have to team up when we need calibrator visits to come see us.

That's a must. I had him over last year and it's a world of difference for the UHD's. He's supposed to be by the area again end of Feb to early March, so might not be too late for you to jump in on that tour.

Did somebody say "ChadB" ?

I talked to him last night and he has a Texas trip coming up next month. You might be able to get him to swing by on his way down or on his way back.

He does fantastic work and I have been using him for every audio/video setup I have owned since 2003.

Does your projector heat up in the box you made for it?

How about your media racks? Do they heat up? I see the glass doors. How are you handling the heat in both cases?

There are air intakes at the bottom of the projector box and the jvc vents out the front where I do not have glass installed. I also have active thermal management system but the projector box never gets hot enough to activate it.

My racks have fans that pull the heat out.

I am thinking of maybe doing a coffered ceiling because I have a beam to to hide, so I might as well make it look better. My basement height is around 8'-10.5". If you can keep the bottom of the coffered ceiling around 8' or higher you should be ok if your riser for a second row is not super high.

Beautiful theater. Congrats on getting named Home Theater of the Month!!

How successful was the sound isolation? Those Seatons can bring some rumble How much travels to the rest of the house?

Thank you! The sound isolation worked very well. A little rumble but everything else is eliminated. It can be at reference level and you can’t notice anything at all with a tv on at normal volume on the other side of the wall

I have a ps4, xbox 360, and a pc running Hyperspin. Hyperspin is pretty neat but making changes is difficult unless you really know what you are doing. I tried to make some adjustments and messed up a bit of it. Thinking about getting a pandora 4s or 5 which is jamma with hdmi output. Recroommasters has an extension controller that has jamma interface.

I know this is a few months old but you could always do low profile coffers and beams. I have a 9 foot ceiling with a 15" high riser and I don't think it feels cramped with the 3" beams I used.

I was just about to say that. that is what my buddy is doing for my theatre when we get to finish work. We are doing a lower profile coffer. HE has done some even lower profile and with the diff build up of trims he made at the shop they came out awesome. he used contrasting woods so that gave it a pretty cool look also.

Nice! Congrats on getting Home Theater of the Month award!
You deserve it!
Love the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. It really does make it more elegant and like a real movie theater.
The arcade cabinet in the lobby is the icing on the cake!!
How many games are on it and what front are you using? Hyperspin? Did you build it yourself?
Enjoy!!
A+!!!!!!

I bought a kit from recroommasters and put it together myself. I have a ps4 and an xbox360 inside as well as a PC running Hyperspin. I love playing newer games like injustice 2 and street fighter V as well as old classics.

Gorgeous stuff you got!

Does the matte black have any reflection, did you wish you did flat?

Any equipment porn photos?

I think a very negligible difference. I had flat paint in my old home theater and neither were distracting at all.

How deep is your screen/baffle wall and riser?
Whats the distance between screen and first row of seats?
Is your JVC with 1800 lumens able to power your 160″ wide screen? The calculator on ProjectorCentral website shows only 9 fL of screen brightness with your current setup. Is there something that I am missing here?
