I am looking for input on how to redo my front wall in my smallish theatre.
The room is a “media” room with an open floorplan.
I would like to split up the “office” area and the “theater” area and paint the roof dark on the theater area.
I would like to ingrate my equipment in the front wall, with a "fake" wall and hide the front speakers/subs/ equipment rack all in the front wall.
I have noticed that BIGmouthinDC has had quite a few of these, but I did not find one where the equipment is integrated in the front wall.
The reason I want to put the equipment here is, because all 10 of my power sockets are in the front wall.
The construction of the house is as follows:
Wooden house Walls construction are drywall and wooden studs with 250 mm outers shell and 50 mm mineral wool isolation.
I do have acousticall drywall up and that has helped quite a bit allready with the acoustics.
Floor as 50mm floating concrete floor. The room is on the secondstory and open plan above the kitchen
The two "areas" upstairs are divided by 2 halfwall that provide the rails for the stairs.
I have decide to build bafflewall/fakewall on the frontwall. This can hide all speakers/subs/ equipment inside the frontwall.
I am planning to use a 100/106" 16:9 screen.
The listening are has a depth of 3 meters, so space is rather limited.
Biggest issues has been pretty challenging for me to get my room pressurised, even with 18”inch subs.
I plan to darken the white roof with some dark paint, ect as that effects my contrast quite a bit.
My first question:
I have planned to cover up the acoustical frontwall with the some normal drywall to double it up and add some weight to the frontwall. Is this worth it to do or am I wasting time?
