RETIRED theater builder
A lot of people have time on their hands, AV PRO Edge and Anthony Grimani did a nearly two hour webinar on home theater layout and sound design last week. It covers a lot of ground of what you normally spend hundreds of dollars at CEDIA to learn. They are planning more and hopefully they will be posted on Youtube. As I've often said if you ask 10 theater designers for an acoustical treatment plan you will get 12 different designs. One of the things that Anthony is a proponent of is asymmetrical layout of treatments, with the left wall different than the right. Other designers want them identical and I think most of the pro designs that I've worked on have been symmetrical. I'm open to discovering which one is best in my lifetime.
