Drummerboy1962 home theater

This is a dedicated theatre designed to keep the sound in with minimal escape of noise. I have found the sub is hardest to contain with only minimal amount escaping. There is no windows and just the 2 doors on the one frame. The walls are 230mm thick Hanson block filled with concrete right round and then lined with 2 layers off 13mm sound stop board including ceiling. I am getting ready to purchase a new projector, screen and lens and take another leap forward. The room is big at 8.5m x 5.5m and a ceiling height of 8ft which is perfect for the family viewing. I am fortunate to be able to crank up the volume without disturbing next door. No Atmos yet as I think in a few years better products will come out.

Re: Drummerboy1962 home theater

I agree. Wow. I like the setup. I also like the star wars action figures as well as the lord of the rings and Jack Sparrow posters. I must also say that is one colorful speaker there! Excellent job. I am sure you will enjoy that theater room.

Re: Drummerboy1962 home theater

It used to be used for band practice.Once them 2 doors are shut the sound stays in the room and very little noise is heard.The Star Wars figures were bought at Big W for 150 bucks each.I am not really one for cluttered rooms with too much in them but I could not resist them as I walked past.

Re: Drummerboy1962 home theater

Sound proofed room is great. Helps to keep the noise from bleeding outside.. I am sure other folks in the house appreciate it. $150 isn't too bad for the Star Wars figures. They look great so well worth the price.

Re: Drummerboy1962 home theater

This hobby of ours can be expensive at times but the rewards are great.A dedicated room is one of the best things we can do for our Home Theater's and very seldom you will lose money on it. It makes a great investment and can improve sound quality if done right.The rest of the family love having the luxury of going out to the room whenever a blockbuster comes out. The other movies are watched in the lounge room on a mediocre system which still sounds good and has a good impact. We have the Pure Accoustics 5.1 Speaker system with a Pioneer LX 86 receiver for the lounge room.The speaker system and sub are ok but nothing in the league of the Yammy HX8 which are made from Canadian maple and are a fantastic speaker and so different to their standard line. The Yammy speakers always get high praises from all who hear them and are very underrated.As far as I know, I don't think they are available in the states from what I was told.These speakers have never once given me a problem in all the years I have had them and I can't rate them high enough. You gotta love Home Theater as its an awesome interest.

Re: Drummerboy1962 home theater

Lounge room setup looks like this for mediocre viewing. No Blockbuster movies are watched in this room.

I have my heart set on a JVC X9000 or an Optoma at this stage but adding a anamorphic lens could sway me to something else depending which projector looks best with one.They are just a couple of brands among many who are making great projectors at the moment.Also a new screen possibly an LP Morgan 150". If I can get real results with something cheaper then I will also look at my options too.
