  11. Home Theater Design and Construction
    So it seems I have a new home that will be under construction soon and I'm looking for a little advise on the current layout I have drawn up.

  15. Home Theater Design and Construction
    We are finishing our basement and would like to put speakers in. We had a system put in on our main level when we built our home but the ceiling wasn't insulated so we can't really use it for fear of waking sleeping babies directly above it :hissyfit:. We're not big A/V types so will keep it...

    I've got a future theater room in mind for my basement family room. It's a finished basement, and the room is approx. 12' by 30', though I think I would only want to use about 15-20' feet of that 30 so there would still be space for a Foosball table or something else. I would like to start...
