Bill,


Just stumbled upon your thread...thanks for your service and I look forward to watching your theater get built. Quick question, do you have air intakes/outtakes going to your equipment closet? If not, do so...those rooms can get quite toasty.

One other tip...don't run wires through studs unless they are going through smurf tube or PVC...while you may think you'll never need to run another wire, you always seem to have to in the future (I learned the hard way on this one).

WOW! Nice progress! I see that military discipline and retirement time are both paying off.


One question - what's up with the in-ceiling boxes shown in a couple of shots. They have 3-wires like ceiling fans will be installed. If that's the case, the way they are installed won't work well with your clips, channel and double 5/8" drywall from soundproofing and depth (of the box) perspectives.

That's a nice look. Are you going to go with lighter colors, such as your example pics? Or keep that design, but go with a darker color scheme?

I will most likely go with dark colors reds and black or very dark grey

Looks great! What are you thinking to use for a remote control for equipment?
Still a way off I know it will be an IR repeater to IP type system so I am going to run a few CAT-6 to the front.
