How many cables are you running to your projector I will only have 3 which I mentioned above. I guess the challenge would be the power cord. I just don’t have all of them to try it out before I put the drywall up.

Just 2. Power and hdmi. The bottle neck is between the projector’s mounting plate and the mounts swivel base. There’s next to no room there. Rather then forcing a bad situation, I just kept it simple. How long is your drop tube?
You could cut a hole out of the side of the down tube near the projector’s top, and run your cables out of it. But that weakens the tube. You can’t fully hide cables anyway. Unless your projector has a rear cabling cover. Mine doesn’t.

Drop tube is 6”h x 1 1/2” in diameter. Very true regarding cabling you can’t hide it all and it’s all black cabling so no one will ever see it at the back of the tube.

So here’s the question when finishing the baseboards around the back of the room I didn’t really want to stop the baseboard at the ports so I was thinking of building a small platform that would raise them up about 6-10”. Can anyone tell if there will be any concerns with having them on a platform or behind the fabric.

Hey Jared did you have any thoughts regarding this posts working on that today as well any concerns with this idea.

I didn’t comment on this because I have no basis of knowledge for answering the question. All I can say is every room is different, and sub placement is a weird science and art combo.
That being said, I’m sure moving the sub up 6” will not make a difference.

I guess my main concern would be it being behind the fabric, should the sub box be a few inches behind like a screen or it shouldn’t affect the fabric beside moving it back and forth.

I see. Well, I have subs firing into my screen and speaker grill panels beneath. The stuff will move. But because it’s fabric in the back of your room, I wouldn’t worry about it. Give it a couple inches and call it a day.

Working on building the inwall rear sub platforms where the subs will be placed. I decided to go 8” off the floor so the ports will be above the baseboard.




Second one in progress
I did fill the cavity with 8” insul and there will be a piece of plywood going in front of the small platform.
To the right and left of the rear subs there will be a columns for my rear surrounds.
Update on drywall, double layer of 5/8s is completed in the theatre room (hard part is done finally. Pictures will follow once I get the rear wall completed.

It was a good choice now I’m in the basement trying to figure out why there is little bass coming from the 2 powered subs. There is now settings on the Yamaha receiver that I can figure out and I think I have all the settings correct on the amp but not sure

Mahuzz Theatre with enough bass even eng-399 approves

No at our cottage we have a HT that I was trying to hook up 2 powered subs with only one output on the Yamaha receiver. There just doesn’t seems to be enough output or maybe there is a setting on the amp plate causing little bass in the room am at a loss

Both subs set at 0 phase
Crossover set at 40
Volume maxed
And volume on receiver set at -15
Should have lots of bass I would think


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Here is the back of one of the subs. I put the rca cable into the in and ran another rca cable in to our to the other sub in. Does the other sub phase have to be set to 180 or does that matter.

man I missed a lot on this thread I need to jump over to the dedicated theater area more often. As for your projector mount and pipe it’s not a good idea to mix low voltage with 120 volt ac. It might Cause a issue

Well here is a little update rooms a little messy haven’t cleaned up yet. Drywall in the threaten room is 95% done, at closet I’m saving for last I might have a few additions in there.
Looking at the back of the room from the screen

Looking from the room beside the theatre

Rear sub enclosure and I had to inset the right surround so there is enough room to walk around the column and bar counter, it was and after thought but was easily installed after the drywall was up
looking from the platform to left of the room into the sitting fireplace room and the av closet to the left.
middle and rear atmos speaker boxes
front atmos speaker boxes

When all done the fabric covering the atmos speakers should be flush with the drywall

Just got off the phone at a taper/mudder and site unseen he has quoted me $2500 to finish the whole basement about 5 days to complete, my wife was quite happy about that price she thought it would be way more.

Needing some input, I am trying to plan my AV closet. I don’t want to have the lights of all the equipment in the room but I want to have access behind the equipment. So I was thinking what @BIGmouthinDC did in his theatre and having behind the fabric wall on hinges to gain access when needed.

Would there be any concerns with the equipment not getting enough airflow. I am hoping Big could give me a link to how he did his or a detailed description would be awesome.

Not much to update except I have booked in the taper/mudder for the second week in Sept, pretty excited about that. Only down side of this is everything has to be emptied out of the basement. So we rented a C-Can to store everything until we are ready to put everything back in the basement
Not how long the neighbours will put up with this eye sore.

One last little note I have decided to go with plywood instead of MDF for my speakers, the cost has doubled up here in Toronto since May because of the forest fires out west. So I picked up 4x10x3/4 plywood for the same price. I figured no one is going to see the speakers so the really don’t have to be perfect.

Here is the load of ply that will do all my speakers and subs, total price of $540, I think that really good to build 8 sub boxes, QSC 2150(LCRs), 6 HTM8s and 6 Volt8s.

Well the day has finally come after the last screw was put in last night at 11pm, Tony the taper/mudder will be starting today and in 7 days the basement will start to transform quickly (I hope). My wife has put a deadline on. The basement Oct 30th to be move in ready, is she crazy yes but at least it will be done besides all the speaker builds.

Fantastic. It’s crazy after a certain point, how a build really gains steam. I look forward to seeing the results!

Going back to the beginning of your thread and the support post relocation.
I am in a similar situation but have been put off by many people I consider knowledgeable (Jeff Parkinson for one) who say the cost to move a support post is generally prohibitive.
Certainly it depends on each situation, but in your build it seemed like no big deal. I assume your contractor took care of the details. Any idea what the actually cost was?

Hey David thanks for reaching out and going through my build. I’ll send you a pm so maybe we can talk on the phone about your situation.

Well the taper finished yesterday and he did and amazing job, he will have to come back to do a few touch ups but over all the basement looks fantastic.

Spent the last 4hrs cleaning up all the cow patties he left behind dusting all the ceilings and walls of the drywall dust and then shop vacuuming it all up.

I am going to try my new paint spray gun I got for Christmas this past year (I’ve never sprayed before always rolled) so I am hoping it works well and saves me a ton of time.

Hers some pics of the basement.

this is shot standing back right corner where the equipment room is down a short hallway to the stairs on the right and the screen wall will be to the right
equipment room, the black large square is a very quiet bathroom fan that will kick on if the room reaches a certain temperature which I haven’t figure out what that is yet.
I have extra 2” tubes running to the electrical panel and behind the screen. hallway to the bathroom

Wagner Flexio 590 hope it work well, let the spraying begin.

I would back roll if you spray. Otherwise touch-ups will be impossible later.
Room looks amazing.
