That's the old color along with the dark grey ceiling.

We plan to repaint using the same colors.

The old screen was mounted to the wall. The new screen will sit in the opening at the end of the room. The 2x4's will be painted black, and faced with frames covered with black speaker cloth. All power amplifiers along with speakers and subwoofers will be hidden behind that cloth. The trim up front will move to dark grey.

Looks like it is coming along nicely. I agree with Todd, the dark grey is very nice. As you already know it makes a nice difference!

Re: Theater Room Upgrades

I am really excited about the acoustically transparent screen. With everything hidden behind the screen it will make a HUGE difference. That end of the room will be a nuteral black hole.

Going to a AT screen was one of the biggest improvement to my HT IMO. Get the front wall as black as possible, and it will enhance the images.

Re: Theater Room Upgrades

I have a question.

I have never gotten serious about base traps, diffusers.....

I have downloaded REW and ordered a mic. Will I need acoustic treatments? How do I determine what I need and where do I put them?

Re: Theater Room Upgrades

The first thing to do is measure with REW. That will let you know where you need help. Obvious places are 1st reflection points. Front wall dead. Couple of diffusors/absorbers on the back wall, corner bass traps. Then go from there.

Did you leave openings (front & rear) in the riser & stuff it with insulation?

Riser and stage were already stuffed with insulation. We had to run a couple of new electrical outlets. The electrician wasn't happy with all the insulation.
