    I need constructive input with a MiniMarty Sub Riser that is movable on carpet. Hey all, I've been working on finishing my theater room in our basement while working from home this year and am nearing completion. The room is fully functional, however, the MiniMarty I built isn't going over...

    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...
  6. 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...

    Hey Everyone...first time poster. I'm finally making some updates to my HT after 10 years. With 3 kids and a wife, I need to have more seating for everyone to be comfortable. Current set up only has a 3 seat curved row with a 100" screen (eyeing 138" Cinemascope screen and projector as part...
  8. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    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...

    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...

    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...
  11. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hello all. I have read and read and lurked for quite some time and have completed the wall framing for my basement bar/rec room. I just completed building my riser and seated bar for the theater portion. I continue to struggle with minimum seat distance from the screen and deciding what screen...
  12. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    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 am going to be getting my basement finished which has a dedicated home theater location planned. The spot for the theater has been dropped an extra 2 feet lower than the rest of the basement. My main objective for this theater is to have a great movie experience with amazing bass that I can...
  14. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    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...
  15. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    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...
  16. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    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...

    Just a couple days ago we signed a contract with a builder for our new house, and in that house, above the detached garage, will eventually be our new dedicated theater room! :eek: House construction should start in 30-60 days and be finished around November of this year. Then hopefully the DIY...

    To get this out of the way quickly, my DIY skills are, well, horrible. My experience level is embarrassingly low. With that being said, I need a riser, and unless I want to spend an arm and a leg, it looks like I'm going to have to do this myself. Keeping this in mind, I obviously want to...
