Trying to come up with a unique theater name is for the birds. That said, i chose something from my favorite childhood movie, "Dune". This is the second time I have remodeled the room. The first time was done with the thought of having a theater/pool room. The pool table never left the garage until it was time to find a new home
Old Theater - Original: 3/1/2013
I ended up selling this TV days before Seahawk/Patriot superbowl (perfect time to sell a big screen TV!) and purchased my first projector. In order to make things work in time for the Super Bowl I switch the layout around and painted the back wall white. I was finished with 45 minutes to spare. GO HAWKS!
Updated Old Theater - Room Flip: 2/1/2015
Over the past few years I have been chasing the bass monster (tactile response) but sadly I'm located in a daylight basement on a slab of concrete. After building 4 SI HT18 subs and not achieving what I was hoping to achieve I started playing around with decoupled platforms.

This change was enough to convince me that I needed to remodel the room once more. So here we are! My first build thread. I put together a layout in excel (sometimes you have to use what you know). The speaker layout isn't set in stone. Here's what I have so far (White Oaks Cinema
info layout). I'll try to give credit if I remember where I gleamed/plagiarized info/ideas from. I will say that the White Oaks theater is the driving force for this build. It was documented so well that it made the project feel less daunting. That said...this will be unique in the obstacles I'll have to work around (subfloor/window/slider).
