    Hi everyone, I'm new here and new to home theaters - about to move to my very first house with a media room, which is currently white and bland.

  3. Audio Gear
    So, after years of lurking and lusting after the Aerial 7T's, I finally got a pair and have really been trying to enjoy them for the last couple of months. While I haven't had a lot of time to really test them out, what I have heard has been very impressive! Coming from the 7B's, these 7T's do...
  4. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    I'm lucky enough to be converting and extending an existing room to create what will be a fairly generous space for a home theater. Even after a box-in-box construction, the final width of the room will be 16' (4.9m) and the length up to 28.5' (8.6m). A little more width would be nicer but I...

  9. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Q: We would like to set up our first media room, but we are completely clueless about what we should get. Our media room is 15' 10" long and 12' 10" wide. The wall on which we would have the screen is 9' high and 12' 10" wide. We already have the room pre-wired for 7.1 audio using in-wall...
  10. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    I hope my sketch up images make enough sense to get an idea of the odd shaped room. The only entrance door to the room is on the long back wall the female model is standing near. Just moved to a new house and wanted to ask for some advice before I begin to layout a design plan for my home...
