    Star Ceiling – Fiber optics vs Painted A star ceiling is a definite plus for any home theater or bedroom... but what is the best way to go? Should you install Fiber Optics or have the ceiling painted (either by yourself or by a professional)? Well, that depends... (Mural by Night Sky Murals...
  2. Home Audio Speakers
    I spend a LOT of time in my garage and the craigslist JBL 4800s Ive been using out there have been alright but the positioning requirements out there really ruined the sound VS when I was finishing the garage and had them on my bench, pulled out from the walls (particularly before sheetrock went...
  3. Home Theater Projectors
    Just bought a home and not really too experienced with projector screens (have a 65 inch flat screen in home now) Best Buy Magnolia came over today to take a look and they did not recommend it due to the fact the ceilings were so low but recommended an 80 inch TV. Reason being is that if...
  4. REW Forum
    Hi, First post here on the forum or any forum for that matter! Anyways, I'd like someone to chime in regarding the following questions. I will be using the room to mix mostly but of course enjoy listening to some tunes as well. 1. When measuring the rooms FR, does the software take into...
  5. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I am helping a neighbor install speakers in a great-room that has been pre-wired but nothing has been installed. In an effort to find the wire in the ceiling and walls, I've been looking at options. A leading option seems to be the Triplett 3399 Fox/Hound setup available for ~$80. I've...
  6. General Screen Discussion
    Trying to figure out how large of a screen I can fit. The geometry is a little weird becasue it's a finished attic and the roofline "cuts off the corners". Here's a photo (ignore my mocked up fake skylights - those will come later). The flat part of the ceiling is 7' 9" if you couldn't read...

    Im getting close to the drywall stage of my build and thats puts me close to the ceiling part. Im doing a drop ceiling. Is there any special criteria or things to look for or avoid when choosing ceiling tiles? Im going with a black ceiling for sure. This is one tile ive been looking at...

    I have a house I am going to be wiring in the near future that is 22 ft long, 15ft 10 in wide and has 12 foot ceilings in it. The screen will be mounted over a fireplace in the center of the room at one end of the room. There is an opening into the Kitchen of roughly 10 ft to the right side of...
  9. Home Audio Speakers
    I have been asked to install a home theater system in a room with a 14 foot ceiling. With a room that tall, where would be the best place to install the speakers? Would it be better to have floor standing speakers, or in ceiling of in wall speakers?

    Hey guys, This is probably directed at Prof or Cinema Mad, but has anyone seen any fibre optic threads for sale in Australia? I'm weighing up whether to try a DIY star ceiling and am trying to source the stuff locally. If I can't find anything locally i'll probably look overseas. Cheers, Simon
  11. Home Theater Projectors
    My contractor is studding the walls in my basement as we speak for a new theater room. However, the ceilings (beacuse of pipes) will only be 7 feet tall. Will this cause problems when mouting my new PT-ae2000 from the ceiling? I am onlt looking to install a 92-96" screen.
  12. Home Theater Design and Construction
    To maintain access to a variety of pipes and ducts, I'm planning a drop ceiling of some sort in my basement theater. How are the acoustics of such ceilings? I plan on packing between the rafters with fluffy fiberglass, and also stuffing more on top of the ceiling panels. I'm looking at black...
