New Theater renovation thanks to Roman!

Hello all, I just wanted to give a huge shoutout to Roman for helping redo my theater! I first discovered Roman two years ago when I was first renovating my theater space (I think my old theater build thread from 2017 is still up). At the time I purchased the lagoon chairs from him after visiting the showroom as I liked the look and feel of those chairs the best. My family got a lot of use and enjoyment out of these chairs from day one. Unfortunately my basement had a small flood that necessitated the whole space to be gutted. The bottom row of chairs took on about an inch of water before I could lift them up onto the riser and safety. That coupled with months of renovation, sawdust everywhere and drastic temperature changes in the basement I was really worried that the chairs would be lost and I'd have to buy new ones or at least have them reconditioned. To my surprise they cleaned up very well and functioned great (including the buttkickers that were originally installed). This is definitely a testament to the quality and durability of these chairs and I highly recommend them.

In addition, I decided to take this opportunity to step up my home theater to the way I wanted it to be in the beginning but couldn't due to budget constraints. When I bought the chairs I decided to skip audio upgrades and the acoustic treatments that Roman recommended at the time. Since the basement and theatre got partially gutted, I decided to take this opportunity to do that now. Roman and his team did a full acoustic treatment of the whole room (18' x 24' x 8'), rebuilt my riser into a proper bass trap and installed a full dolby atmos 7.2.4 system, with sonance speakers, and a new, even larger, acoustically transparent EPV screen. We are so thrilled with the new theater! I read about acoustic treatments so many times but after experiencing the before and after it is truly remarkable! Thank you Roman for the great work!

Sounds awesome. I didn’t realize Roman did complete theaters with sound treatments and electronics.

I'll let Roman tell you guys about the extent of his theater build services, but it definitely helped that we're both located fairly close to each other in NJ. He's without a doubt very knowledgeable and vastly upgraded the sound quality, look and feel of our theater space.

Harish,

Thank you for your nice words. The room did come out great, and I am glad you and your family are enjoying it.

I know you like to crank it up, but, again, try not to bring your house down

Mostly we custom build the panels for the theaters we do, but I do have some custom panels with various designs we sell. You can even put your own photograph(s), and they will be printed on the acoustically transparent fabric

I would need to know exactly what you are looking for, including size and number of panels, and how elaborate in terms of fabric you would want to go and well as where you are located.

You can contact me off line with all this info, and I will try to help you out.

Folks,

Just FYI to those who preordered their chairs - the container is arriving on 16th, and should be in our warehouse a few days later. We will be shipping out all the orders right after.

Hi All...recently embarked on building my own media room in my basement not knowing much about the rabbit hole I was about to fall into. Found Roman on this forum when doing my research and boy was I lucky. Not only did he help me find the right chairs (8 encores) but helped walk me through the entire process and design. I ended up buy several speakers from him and my screen. The guy knows his stuff and kept me from making several beginners mistakes. Always answered my emails regardless of time. I can’t recommend him enough. Below is a pic of finished project.

David,

Thank you for your kind words, and I hope you enjoy your theater for a long time...

FYI: You bought Escape-1019s, not Encore-1010s

I bought my berklines from Roman 13 years ago and they are still going today with no real issues. The chair I have used the most (even after rotations) is showing some ware on the leather but thats about it.

13 years is a long time...

Im building a new house and a new theater so we should talk. In this theater I only have space for 1 row about 8' long. I like the looks of the seats you show 2 pages back " Jive-1013is in IOOIIOOI configuration". But I need to keep it to 8'.

I'd want electric and consider the but-kickers this time. Last time I tried to build the bass shakers into my second riser but it ended up being so heavy that I could barely feel them.

8 foot space for 4 chairs is a very small, and even with our Jive-1013 narrowest footprint recliners would not work.

The configuration IOOIIOOI or IOIOOIOI (same thing) - is 109" wide
The configuration IOOIOOI is 103.25" wide

Even with the 4 seat couch IOOOOI the configuration will take 97.25" of space, which is slightly more than 8'.

If you can do 98" or 104" you can still go with either IOOOOI or IOOIOOI configuration, and if not, you may want to consider 3 seat instead of 4 seat set.

FYI: with either of those configuration you can use our portable modular armrest that can be placed between the seats on the loveseat/couch creating an arm when needed.
