DIY Theater Translates In Any Language

By Rachel Cericola
Norwegian Bjorn Kristensen turned his 220-square-foot garage into a cozy and very professional looking home theater.


The end result was well worth the four months of hard labor. For the money, Bjorn's room is one of the most stylish theater creations we've ever seen. Aside from the excellent equipment, Bjorn chose a wallpaper design that really makes the room pop. Surprisingly, this room was a mere $20,000. To keep costs down, Bjorn researched his equipment carefully, and bought much of it on sale. I bought the equipment in many local shops, Bjorn says. Looking for the best prizes. He also recruited help to install the funky wallpaper and for the electrical workfrom his wife, a former electrician.




The room is cozy, but produces an amazing theater experience, thanks to Bjorn's favorite piece: the Sony VPL-VW60 projector. It is located at the back of the room, along with most of Bjorn's other audio/video equipment. That way, the light from the components won't distract viewers. The one piece that deserved front and center placement was the Infinity SW-12 subwoofer, which is nestled comfortably in between the front row seating. It is one of many possibilities I tried and it works fine in my room, Bjorn says. It does shake during the movies too.
