This is the current plan for a modest basement theater room that has been contemplated for a few years and we are finally ready to get going in earnest on it. It is my first dedicated theater and I am requesting comments and constructive criticism. The theater room is approximately 13' wide and 17' deep. We have installed some mass loaded vinyl that I had already purchased at about half the normal price, along with isolation clips and hat channel and will shortly begin double drywall with green glue. There is a closet behind the room that is about 13' wide and 3' deep in which we will have the audio-video equipment rack and projector and storage for media. The plan shows locations of seating, speakers, screen, corner bass traps, and some bottom of soffit down-lights & HVAC bar grilles. The dashed lines at various angles converging on the main listening position (front row, center) are just construction lines to help locate the proper angles for speakers, etc. There are other parallel construction lines that show the locations of the hat channels. The tiny black squares are the isolation clips. I have made the soffits and HVAC ductwork invisible in this rendering for clarity-of-other-item purposes. The two double-doors to the closet are in reality bi-fold closet doors. The double-door entrance to the theater room opens outward into an adjacent billiard room. As can be seen, the (already built DIY Audio Group Volt) speakers are to be a 5.x.4 dolby atmos type arrangement. The five base layer speakers are Volt-8 and the Atmos speakers are Volt-6. The four subwoofers shown are in tentative locations and are 12" isobaric DIY subs tuned close to 20Hz each. We also already have an Onkyo TX-NR 787 receiver and two Behringer NX1000D subwoofer amplifiers with a MiniDSP 2x4 between the receiver and the subwoofer amplifiers. We have a Logitech Harmony Hub to control things with. We have an Epson Home Cinema 3100 projector. The screen is 92" (16x9) and is acoustically transparent. The front seats (as shown) have a separate footrest (ottoman) and recline. The rear seats are planned to be cushioned counter-height (24"-seat height) stools with backrests. The master bedroom is directly above this theater. Therefore, I am attempting to keep the ceiling as free from any type of penetrations as possible. The HVAC is tying into the basement system. It will have its own remote sensor for temperature control. And an inline fan in the return ductwork to help with airflow and to remove heat from the equipment closet. I am posting this as a progress thread that I hope will help to keep me motivated to finish the construction in a timely manner. I also hope that someone might let me know if I am planning something that is not going to work very well. Please feel free to comment. Thanks!
