  1. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I'm hoping to get some advice on making the best of a less than ideal space for a theater/sports/game setup. We are in the middle of a complete basement remodel, and it's currently down to the studs, so I'm hoping to determine the best gameplan here so I can complete any wiring and/or make...

    Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to HT but have been reading as much as I can on this forum. It's been such an amazing resource, so thank you all! I've been planning out a new HT in our new house as much as I can. We haven't moved in yet so I might be getting a bit ahead of myself since not having...
  3. Speakers
    I have some challenges with this set up and I'd love some advice. In many ways, I'm still very much a noob. I have some basic understandings but still have much I could learn... as I'm sure you'll see. Desired Outcome: 5.1 minimum with Dolby Atmos speakers (7.1) and amp/receiver. Ultimately...

    So, I am putting the finishing touches on my home theater and I recently discovered a flaw in my plan. I have a 9.2.4 set up, as my room is longer than ideal and I want to make sure my BED layer doesn't have gaps. The issue is that I was planning on using bookshelf speakers as my front wides...

    We are currently building a new home and I have one corner of the basement dedicated for a home theater. I have attached a picture of the planned layout . Unfortunately, the position of the entrance door is fixed, as is the room's perimeter footprint. The ceiling will be 9' high in the front...

    We have a room in our house that we frequently watch TV in but has a funky layout for a speaker setup. Right now I have an old Sony system with front speakers mounted directly on the left/right side of the TV and a small center speaker below it. The rear speakers are small satellites that are...

    Building a new house and picked out Polk RC80i 8" ceiling speakers, 255C-RT centre speaker, RC85i 8" in wall speakers, and an OSD IWS-88 dual 8" in wall subwoofer. I am wanting to do a basic Dolby Atmos home theater set up. Lately I have been wondering whether the 8" speakers would be a bit of...
  10. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    After talking with quite a few people here on the forums and getting a lot of good information I've parted ways with a HT "pro" who was designing a room for me. Long story short he was more interested in making money than trying to make the most of my room. I'm working on attempting to...

    I am looking into a room layout and being an AV newbie, I'm requesting a second set of eyes for things I may be missing. The layout looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/zBsnIfa.png. Ambient light: I only plan on opening the window near the sofa occasionally, but don't know where to begin...
  14. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Long story short, we relocated from Texas to the Seattle area, and our new home is currently under construction. I had an OK (for me) setup in an extra bedroom in Texas, which was 10' X 15'. While it worked for us at the time, it was always cramped any time more than 3 or 4 people were in there...

    Our family room is a 20 x 14 rectangle with a fireplace in the center of the 20’ length along the outside wall. A bay window with curtains occupies the 14’ outside wall and my office begins through doors on the other side of the room. Our floorplan doesn’t have the ‘optional wet bar’ shown in...

    Hey guys, I was looking for some feedback. I just moved and am working on the placement of rear speakers and subwoofer. This room is in the basement, and what makes it different for me is there is a cut-out in the front wall for a media center. The cut-out measures 6'W x 7'H x 30"D. The...
