    Home Theater Seating and Accessories
    I'm thinking of buying some theater seats,and possibly getting the LEDs in the cup holders. Do any of you have them and how do you like them.

    Time to turn to those with more knowledge and experience again. Somebody who's already built a DD ceiling with pot lights can hopefully help me out here. My problem stems from the fact that I already installed my Halo H99RT into the first layer of 5/8" DW so that I'd have some lights while...
