Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Looks like you will have a great addition to your HT! I wanted to have a ticket booth too, but I ran out of room. I will follow your progress to see how you do yours...maybe I will find a way to integrate one into our HT too.

I had decided against it at one point because the basement wall space is pretty well taken up, but my wife thought it would be cool - so of course I jumped at the idea

The space I will be placing it has an electrical outlet that will be covered - so I'm keeping options open to do some lights inside or above... or some sort of lighted sign. I found a motion activated plug/switch that I can use to control all of that, or I have an X10 plug adapter that I can use to tie it into my "all on" command I use for the bar signs and pool table light.

I just ordered a piece of 24"x36"x1/8" piece of plexiglass from Amazon - cheaper than Lowes or Home Depot... I just have to figure out how to safely cut out the "ticket slot" at the bottom without breaking it. Don't want to throw away $25!

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

I should also mention that my wife now wants us to build an arcade machine after seeing a friend's build using Hyperspin as the front end. Turns out one of her uncles is REALLY into the home arcade machines, so he's going to hopefully be able to help her with that!

A couple of months ago my wife told me she wanted a claw machine. I found one on CL for her, and we got the seller to deliver it to us. She loves it. I went to a friends shop, and he showed me his Electronic Pinball machine he built. I am thinking I might make one later to put upstairs over the pond for gaming.

Nice, you talking about the pinball with the video screen instead of the mechanicals? My friend with the hyperspin setup was telling me about a machine that uses a screen but also has bumpers and things inside the box to make it feel like a real pinball machine too. The idea sounded really cool.
Don't mention claw machines... I'm sure my wife would want one of those too!

My friend bought 2 FPs for the playing field, and display, built a case, and uses a PC hidden inside the machine. He has all the flippers, tilt, etc on it so it looks like a regular pinball machine except for everything is animated. Do it, and post up a build!

Yeah... don't have the room for the pinball setup, but it sounds awesome!
Wife is definitely doing the Hyperspin arcade setup - she's already got the spot where it will go picked out... was the spot where my ticket booth was originally going to be, but that's no big deal

On a side note it looks like I may be getting a second A2-300. I know I said the theater budget was gone - but I managed to pull together the funds to make this happen since it basically fell into my lap. Should help with the null I seem to have in the front row.

I have a null in my front row too. I am thinking later this year of removing my back row, and sub. I will then lower the floor down to the same as the front row, and put the sub on it's side facing the front row. Next would be to build a bar around the sub and put some bench stools behind it. My only other option would be to find 2 more DTS-10 subs and put them on the side walls firing at the front row.


Where is your current sub, and where will you put the new sub?

That sounds like a big project, but a back row bar would be cool. I'll keep an eye on your thread My first sub is at the front of the room about 1/4 of the way along the front wall. That was the second best spot from my sub crawl - best spot was front corner at that time.

(See attached image that I thought I could insert here)

Second sub will be on the other side of the TV at first since that's is where I have the pre wired wall outlet installed I'll play around with REW and some other options to see what I can come up with.

Other option would be subs in each corner with the speakers on top. I don't really have a "back of the room" option unfortunately.

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Did you do blue fabric walls, or is that paint?
