Very nice attention to detail. That's really above and beyond.

This build is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I was lurking in another thread where it was a "Small" Black Theater but the space was rather large. Your space is the definition of a "Small" space but what you have done with it is truly special. The attention to detail is bananas! I love the clean and sleek look.

Question: Did you not consider height speakers? Also, did I see front wides in one of the pictures?

Thank you for the kind words. My theater is a direct result of my ocd, sometimes I don’t mind it.

As for height speaker they are now going to be added before I finish the screen. I finally found a matching set to the rest of my speakers on eBay. So I need to buy a 1 RU sized 2 channel amp to power them.

I bought the 1 ru 2 channel amp from parts express on Black Friday. It’s going to push 60 rms @ 8ohms which should be enough for the heights.

I'm in the middle of my own build right now with a few stolen ideas from yours. I have a number of questions but Ill just trouble you for one thing at the moment. The wall frames for fabric. I see you ripped down some 5/4 to build them which is a good idea, but a little extra work. Im curious if you have an opinion on whether its worth it to rip down the 5/4 verses using 1x2. Would be a difference of the frames sticking out .34" further with the 1x2 than the 5/4. I also want try and finish the door the same way you did so i dont know if the deeper frame would create issues with that.

Lastly, im curious about the way you finished the tops and bottoms of the frames. I believe its called a chamfer cut. Did you do that with a table saw or a router?

The 5/4 wood is going to be more true than the 1x2’s. I also went with the 5/4 because I was using 1” linacoustic behind my material so it was just the right depth. I needed all the room I could gain for my small room. Using the 5/4 also allows you to cut your width and height on the miter saw first. Then I ripped those cuts on the table saw which left a scrap piece a little thicker than a paint stick. Then I used the table saw to rip the 45 degree chamfer on the pieces that needed it, very simple. Also using 1x2 will have a natural rounded edge with 5/4 and ripping them gives the perfect sharp corners.

Here is the height speakers being tried out with the new amp. I found a set of Infinity HPS 1.5 SPS Bookshelf Speakers on eBay that match my Infinity reference I already have.

The quality of your work is outstanding. I might have missed this but how are you going to 'close' the soffit?

I ask as I like the fact that they are still accessible. I much prefer this to sealed design if it's possible

Thank you. The soffits have removable fabric panels on the sides of the tray. The space in the soffits are also stuffed with Walmart body pillows. This makes it easier to pull out to have access vs insulation. Look through my build a few pages back for photos.
