KEF speakers and XTZ subs? Somebody likes companies that use 3 capital letters...

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

I'm sure on a lot of these we can't get the full look at what's been done, for all we know they could have subs in the back as well. 3 and 4 look really nice though - I like the colors a lot.

It looks as if these two were designed by the same person! Great looking room, but light on treatments. That floor is probably pretty reflective, probably decay problems if I had to guess. Would be nice to see the backs of these theaters as well.

Agreed... AWESOME looking front-end (would love to see the back, too). So much right going on here... agree with Quenten on the floor.

The big question: What's up with the door and where does it go? ;-)

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

The only room I really do not like is #2.
#1 is a typical multi use room. This room will change all the time and chairs will be moved around. The only "problem is the center channel. I would be happy to have this room.
#2 looks like a room that a home builder would do just to say the home has a theater. I would not like to have this room.
#3 and #4 are great rooms I would be happy to have those rooms.
...





Edit: And I was right about #2. http://olsencustomhomes.com/designs/...la-dolce-vita/

I like #4 as well. Looks like maybe a DTS-X setup? Or just plain height channels above the screen? Sidewall treatments look effective,(is that picture an acoustic panel?) and but the wood floor would need at least a huge rug on it. Speaker placement may or may not be optimal but again REW would be a must.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

The second one definitely looks like they tried to fit too much in too small of a space! If the plans on that builder website are accurate that's a 13'8" x13'8" room with 12' ceilings... that's kind of crazy.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Pic 3 and 4 are very similar; the position of the sub could help them blend better with the mains but the freq response will suffer for sure.
For a better FR near to the corners or mid-way front and rear walls would be perfect.
Also the center channel is to low positioned in my opinion.
Other than that everything looks very nice, great fun rooms.

Now that would be a weird requirement to carry through your electronics life.
