I have been lurking around this forum for a while and have finally decided to start my theatre thread.
I am finishing my whole basement myself so it will not be a speedy build but I would like to thank you for your input and patience.
Construction in the basement started in 2016 when my wife and I decide that this will be our forever home. We could do anything until we had to remove a support pole to another location to give us an extra 5’ in width in the theatre and drop all of our duct work to reconfigure it so we wouldn’t have the under humps under the support beams, picture will follow.
As for the design of the theatre it is not dedicated but will have everything a dedicated HT has except for a door to separate it from the rest of the house. The size of the HT will be 17x21x7’6”, plus I will have 2’ behind the screen for the speakers. Seating will be 10’ from the screen with 4 front seats, a 12’ riser with another 4 seats and sit up bar with 4-5 seats.
I would like to thank a few members already for help and input

As per sound proofing, I have found out through this forum it’s all or nothing. Since this is not a dedicated theatre I will be doing the minimum to reduce some sound transfer upstairs but with this amount of bass it won’t matter lol. I will be doing acoustic treatments with fabric walls. Will need some help with this for sure.
I hope you will enjoy this build as much as I am for my first HT.
