Hello:

Starting a new home theater. It is a new house and the theater is in the basement.


The room when finished will be 22' long x 15' 11" wide and 8' 8" tall. The wall go up next week.


I plan to go with DD and green glue. An image of the room is atached. Most of the theater is surrounded by concrete. In these areas we plan to use a standard wall with a one inch air space. In the areas where it is open to other rooms I am doing staggered studs and double dry wall on each side for 4total layers.


The room is not perfect. I started with Sepmeyer's ratio calculator but had to compromise. I used Montlicks room calculator and it says the dimensions are acceptable.


For now I just need to frame the room and I plan to use acoustical sealant under the framed walls.


I just want to make sure I'm off to a good start and I have read everything I could find regarding these questions.

Do the dimensions seem ok?

Are the combination of standard wall against concrete with staggered studs in other areas reasonable.

Is the one inch air space adequate?


Thanks,

hawk

A few more questions...


I plan to put two Epik Conquest subs or two Castles behind the screen. How far should they be from the screen and will they cause the screen to move.


Also... I want to do a 16:9 ... 2.35:1 CIH setup. I'd like the 16:9 to be 120 inches wide and I think that would work out ok. How wide could I go in this room with a 2.35:1 screen.


Thanks,

Hawk

You have an advantage as the conquest and and/or castles have ports that are fairly low to the ground. This means if you have an AT fabric panel in front of them, you probably wont notice much movement in the material (especially the screen) even if the ports are only a couple inches away. You also have the option of having the subs firing to the side if space is really tight.


I went with an SVS PC-13 Ultra due to space limitations behind my screen. I needed a sub that was 18" or less in width or depth to have it fit.


That said, I ran into an issue if I had my PC-13 Ultra oriented the wrong way that it would move the screen material. I had to adjust it so that the plugged port was closest to the screen. This is the cylinder sub with the ports on top firing straight up (directly behind the screen). The sub itself is only 2-3 inches from the screen material, though the unplugged ports are a few inches further.
