    Home Theater Room Photos (Finished Rooms Only)
    At our current home, life forces me to use our living room as a living space and our home theater. My wife is pretty cool about letting me get what I want (within reason) and rarely vetoes anything based on looks. The only heartburn this set up caused was covering putting stuff in front of the...
  16. Modest sub for living room 5.1 (or 2) system

  19. Living room vs basement theater or both?

    AV Home Theater
    We've had our basic basement theater going for a while. It has a black front wall and ceiling with dark grey for the rest of the room. Everyone thinks the room looks great.
