Now there's a design I can wrap my head around, literally.

See ya. Dave

If you go to the DreamScreen website they appear to be a re-seller of items manufactured outside of Norway. The question is who is the original vendor and are they available elsewhere.

Another alternative with a small headrest is this one:

I started looking at those seats yesterday. Not a bad price, but does anyone have experience with these seats from Coaster?

I like them as well, but for one row you could buy 3 normal rowed chairs. Pricey is an understatement.

Only $10k for a row of 4 with power recline and black cup holders...of course, I am having a hard enough time getting the wife on board with a $6000 projector and a $2500 screen...lol

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

If the room design makes this impractical, or impossible, the rear speakers may be higher than the front speakers. However, we suggest that the height of the rear speakers not be more than 1.25 times the height of the front speakers.

Lots more good info there too.

So in your typical room with a rear rise, do you align the tweeter on the front with the second row or front row? If you align it close to front row, there is no way you can get that ratio.


I am planning on putting my front speaker tweeters midway between 1st and 2nd row ear height, and rear speakers just high enough for unobstructed tweeter to ears of all rows. Don't really see any other reasonable compromise.

Looks like Octane has moved Viper production to their China warehouse, they are now available for under $1000 per seat. I am looking at a row of 3 for my front row.

Looks like they have a misprint in the specs?...the seatback height is listed as 44"...the height listed on the $1849 top-grain leather Viper page states 40"

Would like to know how wide the headrest is? Does it articulate forward at all like a car seat does?

See ya. Dave
