DOLBY ATMOS! HT ROOM for Movies only:

Med to Large bedroom that is 12 X 19 viewing area with a 6 X 8 (approx) added floorspace to the left rear going out to the hallway.

Before


Before


Before


Hallway door to HT Room


Door


Front Stage with JTR Quintuple's, Mitsu 82" dlp, & dual Submersives (I did have 4, went back to 2)- one per front corner.



Room has GIK Acoustics package with corner bass traps, super bass traps in the rear, and the rest of the traps are 244's. Rack with the Denon x5200w AVR & Onkyo 9-channel amp PA-MC5500 (4 ohms @ 300 wpc). XT32 and all speaker crossovers are at 80 hz, Oppo 103D, Direct TV satillite box, Mitsu 82" DLP TV, Monster HTPS 7000, and for older HDDVD movies - Tosh XA2. L & R, C speakers are JTR Quintuples, and all Surrounds are JTR Triple 8's, Height 1 & 2 speakers are Tannoy Di5's. Dual Submersives HP subs, and they are placed in the front corners. Feeding the equipment are 2 dedicated 20 amp lines. Seats are Pavillion Red Leather Home Theater Seating with 2 rows of 3. Rear seats are on a 12" riser.



It's been alot of fun doing all of this and I have about 7 days into it all.


LIVING ROOM SETUP for TV only:


Living room setup is Polk RT5000 with all RT55's with mains and surrounds. Setup is 7.2 with Denon 4311ci and dual MFW-15 subwoofers. Nice for watching regular TV shows and news. No movies watched here as that is what the HT Room is for.

Thanx, Bill

Looks AWESOME Bill! Congrats. The red chairs are incredible. They look really comfy, but the red leather looks really bold and beautiful. I'm sure the sound is spectacular, with those speakers, driven by the electronics and the Submersives. I wish I lived near Olympia, WA. I'd be spending a lot of time at your house! smile.gif

You have single-handedly caused me to look at the contents of the JTR website with lust. lol....That theater is excellent.....Now, as someone who is at the threshold of upgrading subs, i must ask--what made you go with the Seaton Submersives v.s. the JTR Captivators?

P.S. That "The Hunger Games" poster - sheer excellence.

Haven't heard the Caps but Seaton has an excellent rep and the Submersive has been around for awhile with no issues. Shootout between the Submersive and Caps are so close some of the people involved had a hard time between the two. I have had 18" subs in the past but prefer the dual 15" model sealed SQ having had Quad Empires a year or so ago.

Bsoko2-

Sorry if I missed it, but, what are you using for a pre-pro?

BTW, I have enjoyed reading your posts since back around 2008 watching how your knowledge and system have progressed. Of the most interest to me is how you handled your Sub-EQ as that is my latest endeavor.

SO sorry to hear about your wife.

Damn looking good! I could only wish to have a front stage of JTR speakers but you got em all around!

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...
