I need 5-6 pails... My wife is really getting on me for spending all the money on the HT, and I need to get it done ASAP before she really gets mad at me.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Today this is what we got accomplished:
1. floor completed except for the part that is behind the screen
2. centered one sub in the platform and removed the other one for the front of the room behind the screen
3. ran the wires for the sub in the platform
4. ran the wire for the right side side surround
5. sealed off the 2nd row seating platform.
6. ran the electrical for the seating areas, and for the equipment rack

On Saturday we plan on finishing the demo on the wall that connects to the house, build the double wall for it, build the double wall for the area behind the screen, insulate the newly constructed walls, and hopefully get the OSB on the new walls.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Is the Monoprice Redmere HDMI cable good for a 50' length?

They are supposed to be good that far as long as they are the Redmere. They do not support arc as they are a one way only cable.

I think I will go with it then... I just want to make sure they are good at that length. I have used their shorter length up to about 15' and they were excellent.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

It took most of the day today to demo the remaining wall... I don't know what they were thinking when they built this house! They used 1/4" plywood nailed every 3" under the drywall!

Afterwards we went to the local theater and watched Robocop... When the movie was done I asked if we could see what speakers they had behind the screen. The said sure and we got a peek... They were the same JBLs 2360s that we are using in our build! We also got some ideas on how to do our stair lighting.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

What do I use for a door frame for a solid core door? I have heard that I shouldn't use the door frames that you can buy at HD or Lowes due to the weight of the door... I have heard it should be made out of 2x. What are others using?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

You can get a pre-hung door with the framing already attached that's sufficient for the weight.

A friend of mine is giving me some solid core doors... Can we use the old door frames then, or do we need to make some heavier duty ones? I saw some at HD that were on the pre hung doors that appeared to be just normal door frames (not heavy duty)... Would they be fine if we need to buy a new frame?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I would think it would be OK. If more support is needed, adding another hinge would be the best way to go.
