Re: Horrorfan33's Garage HT

Very nice video. Nice touch. I also like the layout. Lot of space to accommodate future growth. Good posters. Very clean look also. Great job!

I am sure you will enjoy for many years to come!

Thanks for sharing!

Looks excellent! Couple of comments. Do you plan on any acoustic treatments to help with bass management and reflections, etc? Also did you do the "sub crawl" to find the subs "sweet spot"? And you'd most likely benefit from pulling the mains out at least a foot more away from the walls. Also if the center is ported you'd benefit from pulling that out into the room too. Again, nice looking conversion and I'm liking the theme!

Re: Horrorfan33's Garage HT

Thanks guys!!..I definitely need to do some acoustic treatments..I'm thinking of making a few of my own and placing them on the wall instead of the first few posters, because the frames do glare a lot!!..I tried a few different positions for the front speakers and right now they are about 8" from the wall, but will try it again!!

**I definitely need to do the sub crawl, because this sub rocked my living room, but out there it seems I get more mid range then the lower levels I experienced in my living room..

Great job! I love your colors....mostly because my home theater has very similar colors. Here's a short video of me trying to play call of duty.

Re: Horrorfan33's Garage HT

I think I would of gone with a bit smaller screen and take the speakers out of the front corners. Other then that you have a very nice setup if you can get REW setup and find the sweet spots for your speakers.

One other thing comes to mind you may want to find a way to get the rear channel speakers up higher so the tweeters are at ear level they maybe I was not really sure sense I am not there but I think it would help out a bit too.

Good luck and most of all have fun with it.

Re: Horrorfan33's Garage HT

Can you tell me the size of the room? I'm going to start my project in a 20X20 garage, and just trying to get a feel for the size.

I love the colors and the posters you've used. It really does look good.

Re: Horrorfan33's Garage HT

Thanks guys!!..I have done a couple updates..I did raise the rear speakers up with risers, so now they are at ear level and its much better!!..I also played with different positions of the front speakers and they sit about a foot away from the wall now...I also am sitting at 14ft away, not 10 feet away, so the screen size seems about perfect to me

The finished size of the room is 16x25
