I'm really thankful to be in the position where we're making the space of two bedrooms into a dedicated home theater in our new build home. Being my first home theater though, of course I'm overflowing with questions. I know doing research is the #1
priority, so I hoped to ask some of the questions here. Thanks in advance for any help!
Our room is 5.82 x 3.48 meters / 19.09 x 11.4 feet, and 2.4 meters high / 7.87 feet high.
Our screen is a used 130" Studiotek 130 16:9 Fixed Screen, so about 2.9 x 1.6 meters / 9.5 x 5.2 feet.
Our speakers are the Klipsch RC-64 II Center, 2 x Klipsch RF-82 II Fronts, 2 x Klipsch RS-62 II Rears and 2 x Power Sound Audio XV15se 15" Subwoofers.
Our receive is a Pioneer VSX-LX70, but likely I'll look to upgrade that and ideally maybe add a couple of speakers for an Atmos setup if that's possible.
I haven't decided on a projector yet.
Ideally looking to have two rows of seats, and build a riser, but I'm not sure if the room isn't quite big enough for that? Hopefully it's ok having the fronts by the walls too, but I realise it's probably not ideal.
At the moment though we're looking at colors and thinking about this for the walls, ceiling and the door: https://www.dulux.co.nz/colour/all-c..._duluxnz_28377
But I do wonder if it's dark enough? The darker shades certainly show marks easier though.
Then I was thinking about doing all the walls with curtains to help with the sound too, and it seems recommended to have them about 3 times the length of the wall space, so I'd need about 45 meters / 147 feet. Something like this would be in budget: https://www.bunnings.co.nz/home-styl...rtain_p0037800
(a little under US$ 1000) excluding rails etc. They're Polyester/Cotton, black, insulated and plain textured and I know someone managed to get them in a 2.4 m drop which is the height of our room, so I'm hoping I'll be able to as well.
Any recommendations in terms of what to think about with the paint and / or curtains would be a great help
Of course feel free to ask any questions at all too.
