    Hi everyone. I am starting my theater build in my new house. In my previous house, I had a simple theater with a DIY 100" 16:9 screen and my Polk bookshelf speakers hung around the room on the walls and my equipment in a closet behind the room. No special lighting, no acoustic treatments. It...

  5. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hi Everyone, I have attached the floor plan of a decent sized room that we have in the back of the House. It is not a perfect rectangle due to the small portion at the back as you can see. We will be installing a 5.2.4 system in the room with a 140 inch screen. The non-rectangular...

    I'm interested in home theater and can't currently mount my TV nor my speakers to the walls, so I'm looking for a TV stand that raises my TV to near eye level--because I've read that that is the ideal height for your TV or other screen to be at--and my center speaker to near ear level--because...

    Hi there, can someone help me understand how the surround speakers work? They have two twitters, is it because if placed between the front row and the back row, one twitter will shoot at the front row while the other shoots at the wall to bounce back to the back row? I'm trying to understand why...

    I don't know if everyone is familiar with new neighborhood home construction builds, but they have multiple floor plans to choose from and you can make some alterations.
