This is my small and cozy little room, for a 7.1.4 (two subs) system.

Dimension
- 12 ft wide x 18 ft long and 8 ft high.

AMPs
- Outlaw Audio 7700 (7 channels at 200 watts under 8 Ohms/300 watts under 4 Ohms load, all channels driven, from 20 to 20000Hz) for the L,C,R, SR, SBR, SBL and SL (dictated 20 amp circuit breaker, no protection).
- Outlaw Audio 5000 (5 channels at 120 watts under 8 Ohms/180 watts under 4 Ohms load, all channels driven, from 20 to 20000Hz) using only 4 channels, for the FTL, FTR, BTR and BTL for Atmos ceiling duty, (also a dictated 15 amp circuit breaker, also no protection [new picture on page 3, post 107]).
- Outlaw Audio 2200 x 2, (single channel at 200 watts under 8 Ohms/300 watts under 4 Ohms load, from 20 to 20000Hz), for the 2 buttkickers, one more 15 amp circuit, same one use for the Electronics below (just no protection).

Electonics
For the equipment below, same 15 amp circuit breaker as the SMS-1 and the Outlaw Audio 2200.
- Velodyne SMS-1 for volume control for the two Buttkickers (no protection).
- Adcom ACE 515 power conditioner/protection, also on that 15 amp circuit (providing power for the equipment below.
- Marantz AV7702mkII (new picture seen from the back on page 3, post 107. Since the front look the same), that replace my previous, AV8801 and the Onkyo PRS886 Pro before that.
- SONY UBP-X800, 4K/UHD player (Replacing my beloved Oppo 103 Blu-ray player).
- JVC x590r 4K/UHD projector (Replacing the JVC X-30, 1080p front projector).

Speakers
- aperion Verus Grand Towers
- aperion Verus Grand Center
- aperion Verus Grand Bookshelf x 4 for side and back surrounds.
- SVS Elevation x 4 for the ceiling surrounds (pictures on page 3).

Subs
- Rythmik FV18 x 2 (another dictated 20 amps with no protection). SVS PB13 Ultra x 2 on these pictures, and got replace by the FV18. New pictures of the Rythmik are now added on this thread.

Total electrical power for this small room
Four circuits for that room only, two 15 amps and two 20 amps;
-one 20 Amps for the two subs
-one 20 Amp for the main Amp (7 channel)
-one 15 Amp for the other Amp (4 channel, for ceiling duty)
-one 15 Amp for all Electronics (AVP, projector and 4K player)
Yes, I like overkill, not to starve the dual Amps and two Subs due to a circuit been overload.

Screen
- Carada Criterion 114", 16/9 aspect ratio (rest in peace, Carada made great screen, but are no longer in business).

Other
- Soudocity outriggers for the towers and center stand (a nice little addition for the look of the speakers).
- 2 buttkickers under the two main chair.
- The side tables are actual real Goldberg movie reel, not replica.
- Screen move sideway, to be center (pictures of the sliding system, on page 3).
- Four Cooling fans for the AVP (2 for the AV7702mkII) and the main Amp (2 for the 7700), with one control unit with dual temperatures sensor, since the AVP and Amp, will have different temperature.
- Logitech Audyssey 650 remote control

Future projects
- Getting install a protection system for the whole house, before the main house breaker (very cheap considering the value of the equipments, [around $200]).

Some new pictures have been added lately, throughout this thread, including some of the ceiling speakers that were added, and a new sliding system for the screen:)

The screen is in the close position (not watching movies).

This is the position, the screen is when we watch a movie (slide to left), the speakers are aperion Verus grand series (towers and center in this picture) and the subs are SVS PB13 Ultra

JVC RS45/X30 and some of the 4 aperion bookshelf (two front seats on this one, back to three front seats, picture on post 27)

A different view

In-wall Oppo103, Outlaw 7700 (and Onkko PRS886 soon to be replace by Marantz AV8801, and now been replace with an AV7702mkII).

The in-wall from the back (new picture, with the extra amp on post 76).

This is one of my 3 cats, when it come to movies, he always come down to watch it with us while the other 2 are no where to be seen..

Some DIY speakers cable even if it is only to show a few feet




The entrance, pictures of the new side poster, on post 25.

A few changes that I have done.

Before

After

Before, notice the paint color that could not be match properly.

After, gone:)


I love the new look, when you enter the room, the death star really jump out.
Also my Theater name is the CHIMAERA, a Star Destroyer from Episode VI of the Star Wars saga.
I think it fit the room for my theme.

A custom made welcoming poster and a custom made plaque, of my Theater

First thing you see as you enter the room

View from the other side

A view of one of my custom made speaker wire, and my Outriggers.
This is where you can learn to make your own, with some effort and not that much money:)

A schematic of a Star Destroyer print and the one below is the history of the Chimaera Star Destroyer


This last picture show how nice the piano black finish is for reflecting it's surrounding. You can see the right schematic picture that are on the right, right on that surround speaker.

Pretty awesome, I like the theme and name for your Theater, what are your room dimensions? And what seating distance are your front seats? It must sound amazing with those speakers, good job with the custom speaker cabling and in wall components too.

Thanks so much for the compliment:D

My room is around 12 x 18 feet's.
My first row is around 10 from eye ball to the screen (114").

It does sound amazing:)
And sound even more better on the center seat, when the front row was a 3 seat in the front:D

Not showed on the pics, but since my wife give me such a free reign to buy equipment that take months to pay, to make me happy:D

I thought to go for 2 very good spot and none perfect:)

For the speaker cables and in wall components, It was a look thing only, a finishing touch.
But did end-up spending lots of money on it.

So Thank You for noticing :)

Nice looking room. I like the theme of the room also.
You also have a nice set-up:)

How can I add a link of my theater on my signature like you did?
If I look under my user name, I can Edit everything but my signature:confused:

Some serious gear in a very personalized space.
Nice to see the Star Wars memorabilia.
Under post #4 , the second picture is a Star Wars serialize beer stein (mug) right under the surround speaker.
My wife bought it for me way back in the 90"s:D
And for the equipment it was a lot of patience to get one thing at the time, as budget permitted.
For the space, if it was not of Star Wars back in the 70's leaving such an impression when I was a teen.
I would never got into the hobby of home theater, music yes, because of my father Loves for quality equipment.
So thought the name of the ship/theme was appropriate:)

Thank you all for the compliments:D

Did you click on "User CP"? (Control Panel)
When I do that "Edit Signature" is one of the options and clicking on it open a text box that allows you to insert a link.

That is a great setup you have there ! :)
Thank You:)
What a great HT. How did you go about configuring your acoustic panels?
Just the basics.

I use a mirror with the help of my wife:)

She move the mirror on the front, left and right walls and then the ceiling.
Where ever I could see the tweeter from the left, right or center speakers.
I put a piece of tape and cover the space around with it.
The floor is carpet, so no worry there:)

I use some cheap panels from Parts Express since in those day my budget was a lot more restricted.
I must say it work out fine:)

At first, I had also done the back walls with panels for the bass and surrounds.
Then remove them to make to make the room more lively in the back, since Our hearing is not as sensitive and make the surrounds more lively.

I hope this help a little.

Nice setup. Do you have any issues with projector reflections on the verus's since they're glossy? Right now that's one of the main things i'm worried about if i get a set of them.
