Matts DIY Home Theater
I initially had this posted in the media game room thread and thought id start a new thread here as my room is now mostly a theater. This has been a long time in the making. I belonged to this forum club when I was 22 years old wishing I would have a chance to build my own some day. I was living with my parents and couldn't see the day I would have a projector with amazing speakers etc...
The first dive into this was when I rented an apartment and finally had the chance to take a baby step. I hooked up my first surround sound which was the logitech z5500, a computer surround sound system It was all I had and could afford and didn't want to piss off the people upstairs. I loved it! It reminded me of when my dad and I played around with surround at his house and couldn't get enough. It was at this moment I knew I would have something good some day that would put my little computer speaker system to shame.
Jump forward 10 years, 3 career changes, and 5 kids later. I now have a basement with the beginnings of a setup that will be awesome for me .
equipment to date:
receiver: Pioneer SC-LX502
speakers: fronts htm-12, surrounds volt 10s, heights volt 6s
subwoofer: 2 vbss pa460s
amplifier: inuke-1000 dsp
media: custom HTPC running Kodi and able to rip and convert blurays
screen: DIY 120" diagonal spandex AT screen white over silver
Right now I am in the middle of finishing my other VBSS sub and all the volt speakers. Im also working on my 16ft stage area as well. After this is all done then on to convincing the wife that dd, clips and glue are 100% necessary for fire safety in the basement lol! I'll post some pics.
