Ok, got it... What do you do if you want to use a mini fridge then? I was planning on having the fridge, microwave, and seating on a separate circuit.
No chance of putting it in a different space? I do not think it has to do with what breaker it is on - it has to do with the hum of the power draw. I admit to being not 100% on this - I just remember several discussion concerning REW plots where people were seeing a hump at 60 Hz and someone suggesting it had to do with a fridge.

That said, make it a space you want to spend loads of time in - just remember if you do readings and see a hump at 60 Hz, that may be the cause.

Gotcha... Would it be ok to make a soffit that was at an angle, and came out about 2-3',maybe at a 45 degree angle so I could mount my surrounds in it too?
I forget - are you doing in ceiling surrounds?

Won't the fridge cause the same hump even if it is in another room then? I might be able to install it in the hallway by cutting a hole in the wall...

No, I will be mounting the Klipsch HIPs up by the ceiling and angling them toward the listening area. I could mount them lower and have them firing straight out if that would be better. I have also thought about doing a star ceiling in the center of the room.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Make sure all of your HT equipment is on one 110v leg of the panel. Put the fridge on the other leg. That will help some with the noise in the lines. Not going to completely eliminate it but it will help.

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

From what I've read I don't think it's good acoustically to have angled soffits. I've seen people mount angled speakers in a soffit like this.

Every fridge I've ever been around makes a low hum, especially noticeable with mini-fridges. The worst part while watching a movie is that they aren't consistent. They click on and off as needed to maintain the temperature. I'd love to have a mini-fridge in my theater but there's no way I'm going to bring something in the room that makes a hum like that when I've done so much work and spent so much money on keeping all the other sounds of the house out.

That is where I got the idea... I just figured that by continuing the angle it would help with the sound wave of the speakers. Wouldn't it be just like having a attic home theater with angled walls?

I was thinking of just how the sound panels are in this pic... I would just make it a sofit and with the acoustic treatment built into to the soffit. Douse this make sense? Would this be ok?

I will look and see if it would be possible to put it in the hallway sunk into a wall then... I will do the same for the microwave then.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

This isn't my area of expertise, but I think if you are covering them in fabric instead of finishing them with drywall having angled soffits should be just fine. I'm not sure how that could work with lighting in the soffits though.

That's my plan too, there should be room for stuff like that in the office around the corner from the theater room, so at least I won't have to run upstairs every time I want a drink.

I was thinking that the bottom of the soffit could be a flat box that would have my recessed LED lights in it and then there would be a cavity that angled up toward the ceiling that would house my speakers and bass traps, etc. The soffit would basically be nothing but a space frame type of construction with a sealed box running around the perimeter of the room and housing the lighting. I am also thinking of making the walls with curved acoustic panels wrapped in fabric, and maybe some acoustic panels hanging from the ceiling too.
