I started a MysticalJet 3.0 thread in September 2015 :eek:. I can assure you that the build has been alive and kicking. As a matter of fact, I'm 99% complete with the theater. I decided, lets revive the build.

Here is the link to the original thread.

I am creating this one separate because the only info in this thread will be the actual build and info related to the actual build.

So here is Officially the MysticalJet 3.0 (revived) ... or maybe I should Call it Power Sound Theater (you'll see why.)

I'll start with final design and before and after pictures. I'l update the thread periodically with additional information and walk through the build (sorry I can't do it all in one sitting).

Very simple design with a huge impact. Nicely done!

Did you remove the door to the left of the screen or is it hidden behind the curtain?

I think its covered by the curtain which is a great Idea. I may do that in my theater

Yeah is behind the curtain. thought hard about closing off, but the storage space behind that door is way too important for us.

Thanks for the compliments!

Some final design information/models. I used sketch-up and always have for my builds.

Overall 2D design of theater - top view
7513 Theater design 9.jpg

The room had 1 dedicated 15 amp circuit. I had to add more to handle the equipment and I also like to segregate power in the theater. I added 2 X 20 amp and 2 X 15 amp circuits. The AV closet/equip runs off a dedicated 20 amp. The popcorn machine/stand run off the other dedicated 20 amp circuit. The projector has its own dedicated 15 amp circuit. Newly added lights run off their own 15 amp circuit. The existing outlets and can lights run off the 15 amp circuit that already was in the room. Here is a map of the wiring.

General wiring - which includes speaker wires, HDMI, Coax, and Cat6.

Here is a clean mapping of the lights in the room (sans wiring)

Here is a model of the Soffit construction. A couple angles. The grey is fabric, the blue is MDF, and the wood color is ... well wood (2"X4" and 2"X2"). My side walls angle up so I came up with this design that works well, very sturdy and has a "floating" appearance since there is no vertical support to the ceiling. What is not shown in the model are cross members cut at 45 degree angles that I added internally to the soffit. This provides the additional support.

I have many more models - i.e. cut sheet diagrams, screen wall, candy stand build, etc. Let me know if you are interested in anything else and I can post.

First part of the build is actually deconstruction. The room came already with a carpet closet, and an upper cabinet above the sink I don't want. This was a spec house and the builder also had installed in ceiling/wall speakers - goodbye. (BTW - most of the rest of the pictures in this thread are included in the 10 min time lapse vid).

The home run for most of the wiring is where the closet was, so a lot of work was done outside of the room running electrical wire from the panel in the garage to the room. Look close at the first picture, you can see all the wires bunched together where the closet was. I also ran electrical to the center just inside the seat outline on the floor. This is an outlet for the power to the seats.
