Pic 3

Fantastic choice of color for a projector based room (walls and carpet)....seating looks killer...treatments look nice too!

Camera angle makes it hard to tell if the mains are too squished together... TrippleJ makes a good point about the subs, but that could be okay for that room. But, what do I know! ;-)

Would love to spend a few hours in three to find out!

For the third picture, it looks very nice. I see two subs and both are in the front next to the center speaker.. Isn't that just wrong placement? Should be at different locations, I believe. Maybe in the back instead of in the front? Also the left and right speakers are way to close to the other speakers.. Nice speakers, though.
Symmetrically perfect, acoustically probably not so much.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I see lots of potential here. I agree that speaker placement has probably not been optimized. Seems like they were placed for visual effect more than audio presentation. A run through with REW would be a must. Love the black and silver. The tan wall color has to go.(maybe a different tone of tan. No pun lol) Is that a surround speaker on the right, in front of the seats?(horizontal plane)

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I will say, I ran REW for my dual sub setup...and the best sound across the seating space came from two subs in the front...

I know every room is different and that certainly breaks the norm...but, it is possible!

I think it's totally possible for this configuration to yield great results, and many times it surely does. I just feel like the photo appears to reveal a system which was set up conveniently to look great more than sound great. Who knows, it could have been measured and setup accordingly or maybe even by ear sound awesome. We'll never know for sure. I do like it though!
Fun thread too btw.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I think we all agree that the room looks great. I would move that most forward wall treatment to the front wall behind the mains. Don't see any useful purpose where it is. Then I would move the surrounds back to beside the seats. I'm thinking it is the only row of seating due to the photographers angle. I could be wrong. I suspect it doesn't have very good SS&I for 2 channel.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

It is a very nice theater. The screen looks great. Picture 3 and Picture 4 are very similar in that all the speakers (including subs) are all in the front.

Main:
Samsung UN75F8000 LED TV, NAD T-777 (7.2 Receiver), Oppo 103 Blu Ray Player, Sony PS4 Gaming Console, Wii U Gaming Console, Panamax MR-5100 Surge Protection, 7 Paradigm Reference series 8" in ceiling speakers (AMS-150R) - 30 degree tilting speakers, 2 Paradigm SE Sub
