Sorry for the lack of info in the first thread. A little history behind this theater. I have been planning,sketching, doodling what have you , for about 5 yrs now. I had a previous theater in my other home but wasn't
a dedicated room. This one will be located in the basement with no windows. room size is 17ft wide by 24 ft. long and yes a 10ft ceiling.
I must admit this forum has been a god send because until I found it I was
lost as to what to do first. All the av dealers around here only deal with equipment and a few installations but I was more concerned about my room sounding good as well as looking good. With all the questions I had
and concerns they were easily answered here. The Knowledge and the amounts of shared info has been enormous. Along with a little humor I might add. The design itself, I must admit,I took from several members
own theaters to achieve the one that I have now. It was all put together by John Cudak @ Theater Design services and was one of the first designed by him. So Big Thank Yous to cap'n randy, art sonnenbom, and others for the inspirationan pics and info. Below are a few more pics of the theater.
Art, man, I am sorry about that I have been working out of town for about
the last month and half and forgot about the pics. Plus theres this guy with this huge thread and salivating mob standing outside his door just to buy
tixs to the newest theater on the block. I was trying to get pass them to see what all the commotion was about.
Have more pics but my wife has the computer locked down for school reasons
something about a paper due, a thesis or something to do with a phd, something she keeps screaming about. But anyway will be adding more pics this weekend. Oh yeah I sort of copped some ideas from your theater(the OLD one) Thanx
BasementBob, I have 10' ceilings so my design called for a step trey ceiling so I dropped down a foot added a soffit and room for my rope lighting to go in between the crown and the ceiling. most of the duct work you see will be moved and hidden in the soffits. Sorry for the out of focus pics my sister took the pics while I was out of town.
Can I call you Tom Holman? I am wondering why the need for so many surround cabinets? Sure, Hershellman said "it is hard to be surrounded by sound with only two speakers", but geeze I would hate to be in your room without a lead vest protecting my kidneys from damage. As for the front sound-staging, looks like the Sony SDDS array. I know they have discrete L, LC, C, R, and RC processing. Do you have something to use for this? You may be using the far left and far right speakers for music only critical listening speakers, not sure. I am all about overkill, but too many speakers played at the same frequencies can cause comb filtering. But good diagram and good motivation on your theater.
