Great looking theater, R! Definitely one I will be putting on my short list of "theater pictures to borrow ideas from" :-) I like your tasteful choice of colors, and clean lines (no clutter). I'll go study your construction thread now...

Awesome setup. Very utilitarian - This is what I see for myself in the future with some minor changes.

What I love is that it looks big enough to be a theater but small enough to still possibly have a basement outside that room (from the looks of things). It also doesn't look like the average joe wouldn't need to take out a loan to finance that room.

Total awesome.

Very nice and a really clean set up. How is the ceiling? Do you get any reflection with the lighter color?

R_Willis: I really like your HT. The clean look and color scheme are really sharp.

Question: I see that you have some sort of material on the lower half of your walls surrounding the theater, but is that paint or treatment on the top part?

Yes, both the lower and upper walls are material treatments.

Way Nice. I like how you set up the screen with the step up below and the angled corners. Are the speakers in the corners?

Left & right speakers are in the angled corners hidden behind the GOM701 fabric. The center speaker is directly centered below the screen, also behind the fabric.

Thanks for the compliments.

Very nice and cozy. Great color scheme. I think I may use those also. What are the dimensions of your room? What color is the carpet? Did you paint the ceiling also?

Superb job, R! If you're not careful, I'd imagine your next of kin will have to send a search party after you from being holed up in such a fabulous theater. Hat's off to you, bud!

If is sounds as good as it looks you have one heck of a theatre.

It's DEFINATELY on the to do list. It looks like a bomb hit the area in there.

I was trying to wait till I got some extra pieces of gear I wanted, and ran a few extra cables (HDTV distribution via 2 CAT5e to multiple rooms & RG59/+power for security cameras).

Got a ton of heat shrink, zip-ties, cable organizers, and etc ready to fix that mess up when I get around to it!

Very impressive, the screen fronts are they matching placed behind a perforated screen?

I can't see the surrounds in the two pictures above due to the angle and the lighting, but I would go for two or three surrounds down the sidewalls to add a little, more low end as possible. The overall look of the room is very nice, I like it.

Hey R_Willis...I think that you have a very nice setup, shows alot of thought going into the construction.

Hey pirate...I'd be willing to bet that R_Willis has a MUCH better time relaxing and enjoying his system than you do sitting on a milk crate "dreaming" about what to get!

I love the front stage, with the screen and angled walls, but the seating arrangement is a little too "commercial" for my taste... I guess I still want to feel like I'm at home even with a setup that sounds better than the local theater, big couches, lots of friends.

Very nicely done. I really like the large lower stage area. From the photo it looks like it comes just about to the first row of seating. How much room is between the seating to the stage? I don't remember seeing another theater with a stage like yours. In most home theaters there is always a large empty area in the front, but the way you did it, it fills that area with an architectural element. Love it. I think I will steal that idea for my new theater.


Oh! Looking at your photos again I took the edge of the seat of the chair as the end of the stage. My mistake, but still a nice job.
