Ah yes, 0K won’t get you far... Maybe 15K and under would be better wording.

Im not sure if this is only for home theatres in the USA or not. Im in Auckland New Zealand and Ive been working on my HT for 9 years. It was completeded 8 years ago but there has been many changes and upgrades over the years, the most recent was 6 days changing the ceiling for the third time and adding new RGB lighting coves and RGBW stars. Sorry but the recent upgrade of ceiling and the JVC NX9 arnt shown in these pictures yet. The cinema was a build we did at the rear of the house, so more than 1/2 a million NZD has been spent on the 9 year project. I hope its completed now, who knows If anyone wants to see the latest upgrade I can post those images. To see the build and images there is a very long scroll on this site, it shows each new refit. https://www.blu-ray.com/community/ga...mber=RapalloAV

Here's my submission.

Build Thread
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/19-de...d-re-deux.html

The Story
Back in 1985, I was hanging out with my uncle Chip, and decided to see what I could do in connecting more speakers to his vintage Zenith 11" tv on a cart. I was able to connect 2 additional speakers to the tv, and immediately was hooked on the volume of sound that was available. Being young, not understanding impedance, amplification, shorting.. and the lot, I didn't care.. I wanted more...the uncle on the otherhand I don't think was pleased...

In 1992, I went to my GF house for the first time, now my wife of 25 years, I saw her dads 3-bulb Sony videoscope projector tv! Holy cow! What's this!? I wanted one like that... oh man...
With these afflictions, I knew someday I'd have something like those two things.

Fastforward oh so many years.. Brings me to today...

With a SeymourAV scope AT screen, a front projection JVC-RS2000, and with dual full surround sound Dolby Atmos audio systems, I feel my humble experiences have definitely came of age in my AV years to have achieved a lifelong goal of enjoying home entertainment as good as, if not better than, a commercial experience.

From 2.0 to 2.1 to a Aiwa 5.1 mini audio system, with Pro Logic back in 1993, the expansion of our HT experiences has increased to forever expect higher levels of home entertainment.
I have learned many gotcha's along the way. Have fought not having deep pockets and having the will not to give up on achieving the goals I set out to deliver. I relied on others to provide good sound advice, especially on AVS Forum! And if you don't have the deep pockets, your value comes from skills, time, and the pure drive of putting your minds eye vision into reality.

Wildwood Re-Deux is culmination of many years of "doing stuff with what I got". Do the work and enjoy the fruits of my labor. When you are the designer, financier, engineer, janitor, or the medic, your experience of building a theater is a lifelong memory that will live with you, and with others, for a very long time.
It's like an episode of a new show when you get to see an update of a build. You're excited to see the progress the build has made, and plans going forward. It's the enticement of the garnered experience of others you may be looking for, or it's the idea of 'How can I incorporate something similar to that in my build?" All of these things are what has helped me through the years of building a dream come true, and to be able to share it with family, friends, and AVS members alike. I probably will never be completely done with the room, I will always probably be like 98%.

I hope you all like my submission, as I strive to be worthy of inclusion.

Thank you very much.

The Story
Back in 1985, I was hanging out with my uncle Chip, and decided to see what I could do in connecting more speakers to his vintage Zenith 11" tv on a cart. I was able to connect 2 additional speakers to the tv, and immediately was hooked on the volume of sound that was available. Being young, not understanding impedance, amplification, shorting.. and the lot, I didn't care.. I wanted more...the uncle on the otherhand I don't think was pleased...

In 1992, I went to my GF house for the first time, now my wife of 25 years, I saw her dads 3-bulb Sony videoscope projector tv! Holy cow! What's this!? I wanted one like that... oh man...
With these afflictions, I knew someday I'd have something like those two things.

Fastforward oh so many years.. Brings me to today...

With a SeymourAV scope AT screen, a front projection JVC-RS2000, and with dual full surround sound Dolby Atmos audio systems, I feel my humble experiences have definitely came of age in my AV years to have achieved a lifelong goal of enjoying home entertainment as good as, if not better than, a commercial experience.

From 2.0 to 2.1 to a Aiwa 5.1 mini audio system, with Pro Logic back in 1993, the expansion of our HT experiences has increased to forever expect higher levels of home entertainment.
I have learned many gotcha's along the way. Have fought not having deep pockets and having the will not to give up on achieving the goals I set out to deliver. I relied on others to provide good sound advice, especially on AVS Forum! And if you don't have the deep pockets, your value comes from skills, time, and the pure drive of putting your minds eye vision into reality.

Wildwood Re-Deux is culmination of many years of "doing stuff with what I got". Do the work and enjoy the fruits of my labor. When you are the designer, financier, engineer, janitor, or the medic, your experience of building a theater is a lifelong memory that will live with you, and with others, for a very long time.
It's like an episode of a new show when you get to see an update of a build. You're excited to see the progress the build has made, and plans going forward. It's the enticement of the garnered experience of others you may be looking for, or it's the idea of 'How can I incorporate something similar to that in my build?" All of these things are what has helped me through the years of building a dream come true, and to be able to share it with family, friends, and AVS members alike. I probably will never be completely done with the room, I will always probably be like 98%.

I hope you all like my submission, as I strive to be worthy of inclusion.

Thank you very much.
Love this room. Great color choice, nice detail work. Well done.

It most certainly appears that there is a plethora of options for Mark to pick from for HToM.

No offense taken. Always great to ask questions on why people do what they are doing... Let me see if I can explain my thought process.
IMHO, there are benefits in allot of areas of having so many subs...

1st and foremost...
There are frequency modes in any room, and especially mine. By adding more than 1 sub, in this case you reference 4, one in each corner.
By putting subwoofers into the corners, you are effectively increasing output of those subs due to boundary's anywhere from 3-6db from them. However, you will inevitable have room modes in the room, and thus are trying to fill in those dips within the room itself in all listening seats of the room by having multiple subs.

2nd
By having additional sub/pro woofers, I can distinguish my frequency coverage for each set of drivers, based on there location, tuning, or best frequency response via my minidsp2x4HD's.
10-25hz LLT, subwoofers, (MiniMarty's (17hz)
20-60hz LFE, (UM18' Sealed)
50-250hz Midbass, (PA-460's)
All of this coverage and overlaps of frequency range inevitable results in a much smoother FR throughout the room, which means, no 'bad seats' in the room.


3rd,
The 12x 12" subs behind the seats is for TR (tactile response). These not only add additional coverage of room modes, they also add TR to the user themselves. Reference bass shakers, BOSS, etc..

All of these add to the immersion of the movie and experience of watching the flick.
By no means to be the only reasons, but after reading many many posts, and articles, the experience I have in the room is more than I have ever experienced in the commercial theater, especial TR. Now there is D-Box, but my solution is much cheaper and relative easy to implement.

I hope this explains a little of why I have done what I did.. I always appreciate good questions, and hopefully I've answered yours.

Thank you for the awesome reply! I genuinely appreciate the depth you went into in explaining the thought process and how bass response works beyond my general understanding of it. It was very educational. Thanks again!

Probably a stupid question, but is there some way to sign up for alerts for the HotM posts? I usually just check for updates on the threads I'm subscribed to and forget to check if there any major new articles I should be on the lookout for. It'd be great if we could create a simple thread called "Home Theater of the Month Updates" and just post a link there every month. What do you think? Or am I the only one who wants this?

I'd image each month's winners will appear in the newsletter so that would be a good place to watch for them too.

My room was selected by Scott but he parted ways here a couple weeks before it ever got posted. Regardless, love seeing that someone brought this feature back as I always enjoyed seeing everyone else's room. Things definitely seem to have taken it up a couple notches in the last 4 years since I first built mine. Giving me a complete itching to upgrade things!

I think a "HToM Winners" thread is a great idea. I'll work on that, including compiling a list of the existing winners.

There's a newsletter? I guess I should go look for that. Been on this site for about 11 years now and never realized!

For sure there's a newsletter. It goes out either on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll definitely be including HToM in the newsletter.

Where? I just spent about 5 minutes looking for it and couldn't find where to sign up.
