Hello, welcome into my AVworld, I have been interested in sound and vision since I was only 3-4years old, have had it as a hobby since 10 years of age. The first surround setup I had was in 1989, it was not very good but it was surround Since then I have had many different setups, I've always wanted a system that could play all I wanted of sound but never had the space to it. When I moved 3 years ago had to have space to house such a system. Is this system I want to share information with you about.

My system is:
Processor: Sherbourn PT-7030
Power amplifiers: 9 x Crown I-Tech4000 + 2 x Crown I-Tech8000
Speakers Front / Center: DIY by BEF, Tangen AVdesign inConcert Miles, with BEF DIY midrange design
Surround speakers: DIY by BEF, Beyma 15P80ND + ribbon tweeter TPL150H
Sub: DIY by BEF 6 x 18 " front + 2 x 18" back Beyma 18W1600ND

Blu-ray: Oppo BDP-95
Projector: Sony VPL-HW55ES
Screen: DIY by BEF DreamScreen ultraHD Acoustic V5 (2.35:1, 138", 1.0 gain, acoustically transparent woven)


Power: Monster HTS5100
Cables: All cables used are from Monster

This is the start of the project, there was a large basement with nothing in it, in the house. I built first workshop and HT will be on the other part of the room.



















I had to make a new door to get into what will be my home theater.

For even better soundproofing I use double layer of drywall with a special glue, similar to green glue, between the layers.









All walls are plastered


















Ready for sparkling and sanding








Lining around the door are done

The next step in my process is to look at the acoustics of the room. I have chosen to go for the skyline diffusers in the ceiling with integrated lighting.





















































Ready for Paint, the room is also painted and ready for wallpaper.

Wow, great looking HT room.


Your speakers look amazing.... very nice.


In the first pic where everything looks blue, is that from the lighting or did you enhance the picture to give it that cool affect? Either way, Bravo.

Wow. Fabulous job! Just crazy speakers...

I have a question about the wall construction. It looks like the framing is dry-walled on both sides. Doesn't that create a triple leaf problem?

Cheers.
You can easily get that problem. I have a distance of 22mm from all surfaces of the walls and ceiling, with this distance I primarily prevents this problem and the room is even better soundproofed.

I have used Photoshop on the image to create the effect

The next step in my process was to go all black and not reflection of light in the ceiling. I use a fabric used in theaters/opera stages to make it all black, the fabric is glued to the ceiling.
