Great build @m0j0 ! Love the painted wall on the outside entrance! I really like the DIY hush box for the projector!

Saw some pics of SBuger's theater and he gave me an idea for how to deal with the side surrounds in my setup. The problem I have is that my room is pretty small, and if you sit in the side seats you will have a speaker pretty much in your ear. So, I moved the side surrounds even further forward than I had them initially and now also angled them away from the seating a bit. The result is a much better experience for the people sitting in the outside seats, and because the LSiM's have good dispersion, I don't feel like I'm losing anything from the MLP. In fact, I like the way it sounds even better in that the pans are smoother and more natural feeling, since the distance between the center to the front speaker is about the same distance to the side surround, and about the same distance from the side surround to the rear surround, etc.

Continuing with my efforts to experiment with the speaker placement across the board, I decided to move the rear atmos speakers from the border of the rear wall out to the side walls just behind the seating position (moved from rear heights over to side heights). So far, I can say it has been a good move. I hear more details than I did before and front to rear and rear to front atmos effects sound more full and distinct. I think it may have something to do with just hearing things better that are in front or to the side vs coming from the rear. At any rate, I have been happy with this change, so I will stick with this placement.

@m0j0 – I seriously love everything about your Home Theater!!!! It has SO much character, inside and out!!! Plus not only that, I’m sure it’s quite the performer too with that BOSS, as well as an awesome speaker setup with Atmos and all that. Now looks like you’ve got your SS’s and Top Rears positioned in the best place as well. I'm so glad to hear that trick worked for your Side Surround speakers like it did on mine

WOW what a transformation from what your room was before to what it is now!!! Also, what a fantastic job on that awesome entrance wall …the building of it, as well as what the artist painted on it. SUPER COOL!!!!

I’m sure you and the family get a ton of enjoyment out it

Really appreciate it sir! It's always been my dream to have a true home theater one day, so I'm pretty happy with it for sure!
