Basement Bordom Beater II

Hello all. For a while now I've been picking away at my new theatre. It's not really dedicated, but the main purpose of the room will be for movies and games. The dimensions are 11' x 22' x <8' . The area by the "screen" is 4' wider. I might put a shelf or counter along that wall where the current shelves are for snacks or what-not. Haven't gone that far into the planning. What I do have planned is change out the seating once carpet it complete. Might do a sectional; one that is small enough to allow people to walk by. The back end of the room, opposite of the screen, will be where a table will sit, mainly for my cards nights. AV rack will tuck into the corner to get it out of the way as much as possible. I might get rid of the rack and build something else to house the equipment...and make it muli-functional. Behind the current seating, I want to put a bar height counter, about 4-5 feet long, with bar stools. This counter would be attached to the wall jutting out, to separate the cards area to the rest of the room. The ceiling is planned to be drywall on resilient channel. I am currently putting in 2 layers of roxul safe n sound in the ceiling. Since our present economy isn't the strongest, I'll be taking my time doing the next phase of construction. At least the permits are done and no longer on a time restraint.
Current equipment:
Epson 3500
Onkyo 706
Emotiva xpa 3 and 5
Xbox one, ps3, ps4, Wii U
Paradigm monitor 9 v4
Cc 290 v5
Adp 170 v4
Adp 370 v4
PS 1000 v4 (x2), and v3 (x1)
I am currently working on obtaining one more v3.

The screen I have up now is a piece of painted mdf. Final screen size will be a big larger, but most likely won't go over 120".
The rear 4 pot lights are dimmable via remote, and I'll have a pendant light on a separate switch for above the card table.
I need some recommendations for a ceiling mount for the projector! Any other ideas or comments would greatly be appreciated.

In the middle photo where you see a ladder is where my future bathroom will be. That project will be a doozy. Lots of ideas!

Finished resi channel and got some drywall up.

Got the epson universal ceiling mount and had to add a 2-1/2" threaded nipple to lower the projector so I wouldn't have to use keystone correction.
Have some vibration when people upstairs are walking around since I screwed the mount in the joists. I think I might rig up some sort of rubber dampers and see if that helps.

Before you get the drywall finished, drop it at the projector location. Span the width distance with a couple laminated 2x6's and fasten them to your walls. This will provide isolation from your ceiling/floor joists deflecting from above and keep the projector more stable.

It's too late. All ceiling drywall is up and I'm not gonna drop it. Lets hope isolators will help. At least I don't have a heard of elephants constantly running above.

Re: Basement Bordom Beater II

It's been a while since the last post but I have come a long way, even with only being able to work at it for an hour or two now and then. Everyone love pictures so here's a bunch to show progress.
I have Jaws on order and waiting for the call to pick it up anytime now. It will be going beside the BTTF poster. Those two are in the stairway to the basement, and the Alien is at the bottom of the stairs, on the way to the movie room.
I didn't take any pics tonight but I'm now doing the last coat of mud. I hope to be painting soon.

Re: Basement Bordom Beater II

Looks great, congrats. I am also using Paradigm speakers in my HT and noticed you have the ADP's. I found they work great placed next to the main listening position as side surrounds as well as diagonally in the rear corners as back surrounds. I made some changes recently while upgrading to an immersive setup for Atmos and Auro-3D and am now using the ADP's as wide channels. The ADP's sound excellent as wide channels which are used in Atmos, the Audyssey DSX upmixer and the DTS-Neo X upmixer. Your room may not accommodate wide channels but height channels should be no problem. Any of the small Paradigm Cinema series speakers would work fine installed high on the walls or on the ceiling. Have you considered upgrading your receiver to take advantage of the new immersive formats?

Here are a few to consider:

Re: Basement Bordom Beater II

I have considered, and both of those were on the list. I am leaving towards a Marantz for an upgrade, but at this point I won't be going Atmos or similar format. Too bad I live in Canada cause that's a sweet price from accessories4less.

I use the Marantz 7702 processor and am very happy. Better to finish your build this year and wait to see what the new models receivers for 2017 will be after October.
The only other idea you may want to consider for now is a power conditioner (not a power strip).

Here are a few links. I like changing the wall socket first, the power conditioner next and finally the power cords. Check out the article on the three pillars of a good system and Auro 3D:

and then here are a few links.
