Theater Room Upgrades

We moved into our current home back in 2000. At that time I built a theater room. Over time, things began to get buggy and while it still would operate, it didn't operate well. Back in January, I got with one of my good friends who is in the business to strip and re-do the room. It became apparent about 8 weeks ago, my schedule was a hold up for this process. I asked Mike to take over management and get things going. I also handed him a check. First, take the room from a 5.2 room to a 7.2.4 room. Currently there is no plan to upgrade the front three speakers (Emotiva 8.3 towers with matched center channel). Surrounds will be handled by the large Mointor Audio in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Processor will be a Marantz 8802A, all power amps will be Emotiva XPA-1's, and 2 multi channel. I have an old Sony Blue Ray player that we will use until the offerings for 4K are better. The projector is my old JVC DLA-RS35U (this will be upgraded but again, not until the 4K offerings are more widespread). I have been using a home built screen since 2000. A new Dragonfly acoustic transparent screen is going in. We are going from 120" diagonal to 133" diagonal.

Progress so far:

Screen frame is built.
Surround speakers are installed
Everything is on order

MFW-15 subs will be upgraded this weekend

New AC ductwork, paint and carpet is scheduled
Seating is ordered
Lighting upgrades are in process

Sounds like a great setup, but we love PICs.

Re: Theater Room Upgrades

Nothing worthy of a phot yet. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

Re: Theater Room Upgrades

We understand, I'm in the same boat! But since my roof repair is finally in progress, it forced me to clean it up a bit. I'll try to find my old build thread & resurrect it.

Re: Theater Room Upgrades

We had a little progress today. Electrical is complete including an initial cut at programming the lighting, first coat of spackling is on the walls and ceiling as required, final planning for shelving, speaker stands, etc is complete.

I hope to have paint, carpet, amp placement, speaker placement, and wiring complete by next weekend. Although the seating is still 4-5 weeks away, I hope to have everything but seating complete in another 2 weeks. Then I will have a couple of weeks to play around so that once the seating is delivered, I will be ready to get down to business on calibration by then.

Re: Theater Room Upgrades

You can always save them to your desktop & drag them into the "drag files to attach here" space below this message area (scroll down). You can drag them from an email as well. That's what I did.
