New theater/media room, still needs a name...

New theater/media room, still needs a name...
« on: February 09, 2017, 10:03:34 AM »
I'm building my first dedicated space. It will be used as our family room, so it is a semi dedicated theater or media room. Dimensions are 30x18x9. The front drops down 14". My budget isn't real large, but if you have some constructive criticism or ideas let me know.

Some features:
7.1.4 layout
2.35:1 screen (130" wide)
12 feet to seats
dedicated ducted minisplit
equipment room outside of room
1/2" OSB with 5/8" drywall

Looks good so far. I'll let the construction advance a bit before suggesting a name !

Thanks, hoping to have drywall done by next week.

I like that, but I don't think it would look good on a sign.  ;D

Nice size and nice start. Wire for six atmos speakers, front, middle and back. You might not be able to do six right off the bat, unless going really high end on the processor. 9.2.6 is going to come down in price, so I would wire for it. :)

I wired for 9.1.6. It will be out of my budget for a long time. I have about $120k for the theater, laundry room, bedroom, garage, and storage closet (complete addition 1800 sqft). I'm thinking I'll have about $8-10k for speakers, AVR, and projector/screen. I do have some Klipsch RF82II and RC62II that will be carried over. My room will be filled with slow upgrades over time. I'm thinking about the Epson 5040ub, Volt 10lx surrounds, and 2-4 Ultimax 18's to start right now.

More progress. I'm excited about the equipment closet.

If you can, wire for more than one sub.

Nice looking space. It is starting to take shape. You can see what it is going to look like now. :)

I have two separate 1.25 inch diameter conduit runs from the equipment closet to the front wall. I think I can fit enough for 16 subs.  8)

Thanks, it is actually starting to look real. I made one of the stairs today and it was pretty cool walking up and down from each level. It's coming together.

Conduit is a really good idea !  :)
