After many, many modifications I have finally progressed to a point where I felt I would make a new thread. 90% of the framing is done and all I have left is to frame the closet and one wall in the "hall" portion of the room. I started with a big empty walk in attic and it is quickly shaping into a nice room. Hopefully I will get the framing inspected next week and I will start on getting bids for electrical. As soon as electrical is done I will insulate and get the AC ducts ran immediately (IT IS HOOOOTTTTT UP THERE)!!!!! This is my first time building anything and I have learned tremendously in the last 2 months.


General information:


Walk up attic attached to an existing upstairs room. There is a support beam coming down which leaves 30" to the left for walking to 1st row seats (1st row will start flush with the support beam). A riser will be built behind that with no blocking of sight by the beam. I'm thinking I'm going 3 seats in the front, 3 in the back. No plans for sound proofing. I'm going 120" fixed 16:9 screen with a BenQ 1070 projector. This is a very modest budget build.

Give me some feedback!!!!!!

Attached is my electrical plan. For the experts, Is 3 circuits good for this scenario? One for the lighting,one for the equipment, and one for the outlets. And lastly a basic question (I am not doing the electrical myself, I will pay a licensed electrician to do it) is 3 empty breaker spots enough for this? I have 5 available but just curious.

It depends on what you are planning on using for equipment. One circuit is fine if all you are going to be powering on is an AVR and minor pieces like a BD player. If you plan on having separate amps for your speakers or rack mounted amps for sub/subs, then you need more than one circuit. Even if you plan on just using an AVR, I would still go with more than one circuit. You may change your mind down the road. That leaves the option open for you. Easy and cheap to do it now while the walls are open. I have three 20 amp dedicated circuits and am getting ready to add a fourth.

That makes perfect sense. I'm thinking now I put 2 separate 20amp outlets on their own circuit in the equipment closet

The third circuit will be the projector itself and the screen wall plug in red. Will all the other general outlets be fine on their own circuit? Most of them will be unused but there to comply with code.
