I'm going to start home construction in about three weeks. So now is the time to think about the pre-wire for this room...


Here is the space that I have allocated for a HT room.




My basic thoughts so far...

I'm going to french door the entry, and want to use the "nook" area in the back for a refreshment area (sink, bar fridge countertop)

Considering a partial wall on the right side of the nook in order to effectively mount the R surround speaker (7.1)


questions:

-where to put equipment rack (under the angled ceiling in the back?)

-how high a riser for rear row?

-reclinable seats?

-stage under screen?

-how much room behind screen for center channel speaker?

-ceiling can lights ok?

-assuming on the W side of the house, above garage, will I need two returns and two supply registers for HVAC


I've had a fascinating week reading about and looking at pictures of all the amazing work you all have done.

Your photo is showing. Not sure what the issue is.

How important is sound proofing? French doors cna be very difficult to soundproof.


I wouldn't put a fridge in the room. They are too noisy.

questions:

-where to put equipment rack (under the angled ceiling in the back?) I can't tell you without seeing a photo.

-how high a riser for rear row? Use the calculator pinned on the top of the forum

-reclinable seats? Sure. Most of us use Berkline theater seats. You can get them via a powerbuy for pretty cheap ~$500 per.

-stage under screen? Up to you. I didn't but a lot do.

-how much room behind screen for center channel speaker? Depends on the speaker. Rough estimate is 2-3'

-ceiling can lights ok? sure. But depends on how important sound proofing is. Any hole is your drywall is a way for sound to escape.

-assuming on the W side of the house, above garage, will I need two returns and two supply registers for HVAC have a HVAC person do the calculations for you. A HT produces roughly 10,000 BTUs without having much equipment in the room.
