  1. Theater Room Upgrades

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    We moved into our current home back in 2000. At that time I built a theater room. Over time, things began to get buggy and while it still would operate, it didn't operate well. Back in January, I got with one of my good friends who is in the business to strip and re-do the room. It became...

    AV Home Theater
    What are your plans for tax refunds (at least in terms of home theater upgrades)? For myself, I plan to either add an Atmos receiver and ceiling speakers or add a second subwoofer. I welcome any input in assisting me to make a decision. Sent from my iPhone using HTShack

    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.
