The attention to detail is quite astonishing. All the movie poster displays. The lobby area complete with coffee, beer , wine and soda and video game. Love all the DIY building of subs. You can tell how much planning went into this build. I nominate you for HToM. Thanks for sharing all the pictures. I am curious, with all that space why did you choose not to go with an AT screen. The whole space looks so professionally finished and decorated. Amazing!!!

HToM nomination thanks! It's nice to get credit since 2 years of work summed up in a single post is a little underwhelming. I have so many pictures of each hurdle. Thanks to the forums for some pointers too! Only reason for not doing AT is I like to show off how big the subs are and being an engineer seeing how/why stuff works is important.
There is a lot of detail indeed. Everything is controllable from any logged in smart device. The only thing that was not done by my two hands was the drywall mud and the carpet. Ill add some more pictures..

Pretty cool build. So you chose not to finish the ceiling, did you at least put any drywall between the joist to help with sound from above? do the rear surrounds sound being in the ceiling? I had thought of doing this in my basement, but the whole room is 60' long and wasn't sure how the sound would be in such a large room.

Klipsch KPS-400’s FR/FL with built in 15” 300 watt side firing subs, RC-7 Center, RS-3 Surrounds.
Integra DHC-60.5, 5- Marantz MA700 Mono Blocks, Pioneer DV-F727 301 Disk DVD CD Changer, Pioneer DVL-909 Laserdisc/DVD/CD Player, Sony PS3.

Some drywall pictures and some construction info.
I hung 120 4x10 sheets. Only ceilings were the bar and bathroom as the rest of the area I wanted to look modern/open for future improvements. Not to mention it's considered a "wreck room" so lower taxes on 1500 sqft!
Double insulated HVAC room and ducts.
1500' of 14-2 NM wire
100 feet of 12-2NM ( two dedicated circuits for AV)
1000' of 12ga speaker wire (some prewired for bi-wire)
100' of 10ga speaker wire (subs)
10 Smart switches/dimmers
25 LED can lights
15 3" led can lights
20 gallons of black paint.
15 gallons of Sea Creature blue
5 gallons of Olympic blue/white
Lots of 2x4s, nails screws wire staples.

No drywall between the joists as the house is all mine. I did drop in OSB where the utilities were to hide them. I love my rear surrounds in the ceiling, they stick down a little and should more as I get some deflection.

Awesome job on your build!! I really like the inset poster framing you did!!

Hey question on your bar did you go 36" on the lower counter and 42" on the other? I have been working on cabinet designs for our bar and that seems to be the standard that i'm finding.

I was going to say the same thing too pkinneb. It's similar to what I did in my HT-room but mines not as deep.

It looks great Jaybird. You should be proud of your efforts. I love the way you've hidden the RGB-Leds behind the framework too. Very clever.

Yes, Bar height and counter height. One lesson learned is give yourself some extra wiggle room for between the cabinets. After framing and drywall I thought a 1/2" would be enough clearance to get everything in and level. Boy was I wrong, should have left an inch or more and used a filler if needed. Attached some cabinet pics.

Great job on this space. I love the tile in the bar area. Do those two subs fill the whole space well?
