  2. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    So I have built my riser (12" tall) and filled it with fiberglass insulation. I know the schematics and advice out there say to cut long skinny vents along the sides and back. I'm preparing to do that but as I sit here, I ask myself, why? "Everyone" says that bass frequencies can't really be...

    In the process of building my riser. What material have you used for the top of the riser? MDF/OBS/Plywood? Not sure how heavy each of those are (generally) but would want to go with the best quality material. Thanks in advance!

    I'm planning to build a riser for my HT, that would have a height of 1' but I have an HVAC vent right in the middle of it. Not sure how to move it. Should this be moved high up the wall or somehow extended so that the new vent is on the riser floor. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks

    Hey all, Long time lurker here. I am in the process of building my home theatre room. The riser for the second row of seats has been framed up (12 inches high) but I have been having a heard time getting an opinion on what I should do in my scenario. The entire basement has in-floor thermal...
  10. DIY Speakers and Subs
    In it, someone built a riser or a platform (whatever you call it), put subwoofer drivers and/or transducers (I can't remember if that's technically what they're called) in it, and put home theater seating on top of of it. I'm hoping that it is sort of a 'guide' that's like a megathread for...

    I am pretty close to completing my riser build. When I was designing it I saw on numerous occasions that I would need to use treated lumber anywhere that it touches concrete. The area of the basement that I am using as a theater has vinyl flooring covering the concrete. I am going to be flooring...

    Good Morning Everyone, New to the forum, so trying to find my way around but figured I'd try to post here for help. We just bought a new home and I'll be setting up a portion of the basement as my dedicated Media Room. The room is a decent size, and previously had a projector in it already...

    I recently bought a new house that has a large bonus room above the garage which I turned into a home theater. When I moved in I slapped on a projector and screen to the equipment I already owned just to get me up and running. I had a 7.2 system with Audiocontrol receiver and triad speakers. My...

    I have been working on building a home theater in my basement and it is time to build the stage and riser. I am stuck with what to do under the stage. Currently there is a pad directly on the concrete with carpet on top of it. I was going to cut a piece of the carpet out to put the stage in...

    I have researched hundreds of riser designs and they are all different and many of them are extremely complex. I am about 50% done with my theater in the basement and need some guidance and hopefully pictures for building a riser and bar. The plan is to have a row of 3 theater recliners in the...

    This is probably a dumb question, but here I go. My riser is going to be in the middle of the room with a bar behind it. There will be another row of seating in front of the riser. Attaching a diagram that isn't exactly to scale, but helps setup the basement. At first I was reading bass trap...
