Look at the air vent right in front of the projector... wow. Talk about huge mistake.
I agree. I suspect having that vent right next to the projector will cause lot of issues. Wonder if they selected that location due to the distance needed for the projector to the screen? Either way, it has to be fixed.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I like #6...it reminds me a lot of my sunroom except I have a UHD set instead of a projector and screen. And my sunroom is my secondary room. That's where I watch the news, Wheel of Fortune, American Ninja Warrior, stuff like that. I have my primary theater room downstairs, and it's not white like this.

But overall I love the minimalist style. Could use a single splash of color somewhere, but I wouldn't complain.

That's definitely a wine fridge on the left... with all of that white carpet (I think it's carpet), I hope they're drinking white not red wine!

#7 is part of an underground bunker complex/shelter.

Dooms day would be survived in comfort!

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

the ONLY thing I would say about #7 is that there's no seat in the sweet spot. With 6 seats in each of the 2 first rows, there's an arm rest in the sweet spot. But that's also the case in my theater, sometimes it can't be avoided.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Probably already mentioned but #6 is far too white and almost no sound absorption. even with all the lights out there would be so much light reflected off those white surfaces.
I also see that the centre channel is way to small and placed to far back on the shelf.

#7 looks good, a little large for a "home theater" but given its Bunker purpose I guess there were many people who would use it? Sitting in the rear seats would be a bit far back from that small a screen. Looks like it may not be much bigger than 120"

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900
