Rebirth of Relyea Cinema 1

Hi everyone.

I'm in the process of re-constructing my home theater...the previous room was sold with with the house, and it's been several years since I've had space to rebuild, but I'm finally after it again!

Currently I've framed up the front wall, most of the riser (which will double as a sub-woofer enclosure), moved the back door from the theater to the kitchen, and have started the equipment rack which is in the wall shared with the garage.

Speakers will be UREI Studio Monitors for the front main channels (813 for the right and left, 815 for the center), 2x JBL 2242H 18" sub-woofers in custom made cabinets, 1x JBL 2042H 18" sub-woofer for the center front, 2x JBL 2215H 15" sub-woofers in the riser, and a pair of custom made surrounds (currently planned for 8" Thiel woofers, with B&G planar tweeters).'

Screen is an 106" Da-Lite High Contrast Cinema Perf motorized unit...with the perforations, the center channel can be located directly behind the screen, so the center channel sound will come directly out of the picture.

Re: Rebirth of Relyea Cinema 1

My original plan for the riser accommodated the exterior door, however my wife made the executive decision to install a new door in the kitchen, and will be remove the door in the theater.

I'll be able to extend the riser into the corner now, giving us room for a full sized couch in the rear row as well as the front now.

With all the volume available in the riser itself (which is ~10" high), i decided to build sub-woofers into the riser...i had to get creative with mounting, and cut holes in the floor for the magnets to clear when installing/removing the drivers (I'll be sealing up the holes from the bottom).

Re: Rebirth of Relyea Cinema 1

Did I mention the pressure is on, as my wife's dining room is full of speaker cabinets? (not to mention part of the living room and garage! eek!)

Looks like a fun project! I'm quite sure the WAF for dining room being done in early subwoofer isn't terribly high...

She's pretty understanding...she's a movie lover so that's gained me a little flexibility.

Sounds like you have the all-important Step 1 out of the way.

Unity! ;-)

She really surprised me with the back door...she comes to me and says "honey, you're going to do all this work, and someday want to move the door....just do it now".

It was more work on the front end, but it will keep people (ie our kids) from trampling through our theater every time they go outside...and i won't have to re-carpet the riser later on.

Don't let her hear this...but she was right.

Never hurts to argue with a solid voice of reason!
