    Regarding Colored Lights Behind TVs Everyone is entitled to their own sense of priorities.

    My basement is 24.5x39ft with a 39ft, 6x10 beam down the middle. A dedicated HT is going into one end of the space (18.5ft wide and 24.5 deep). The ceilings are 8ft with 2"x8" floor joists. The 6"x10" beam is supported at the middle of the space by a floor jack. I hope to make a soft wall...

    What's the optimal distance you should place your speakers from the wall? You know the space between the back of the speaker and the wall? Same question in regard to subwoofers? Specifically front firing, front ported?

    I have a pretty small HT, ~15'x16', and need to add treatments. I'd like to put bass traps on the back wall but can't afford to lose 6-8" in room depth back there. I had a thought to build the traps partially recessed into the wall (2x4 studs in front of basement concrete foundation wall) so...

    Starting my dedicated HT room in a week, I have a thread on regarding it. I would like to try a paint on wall screen first. The room is 30x11 and the projector(Epson 8350) will be 15' from viewing wall. I have not decided on the paint color for the other walls and ceiling. What should I...

    I'm a newbie, so be gentle. Searched around a bit, but thought someone could point me in the right dirction. In a couple months we'll be moving into a new house with an unfinished basement. One plan is to set-up a home theater on a budget now, then a nicer one once we decide to finish the...

    I am trying to determine how wide my trim needs to be on the side walls - is there a standard / suggested thickness for 703 on side walls to treat reflection points? If so, does it adhere right to the wall or should a gap be left between the wall and the 703? Thanks! Joe

    I am looking to purchase my first Home Theater System. I was analyzing the audio components on this forum when I discovered there was this section dedicated to acustics. Upon reading some of the post and recommendations It looks like the room I picked for my Home Theater may not be very good...

    The exterior walls in my basement HT build are insulated with spray foam. Because the framing was constructed 2" from the concrete walls, and there is 2" of spray foam, the 3.5" of stud space is empty. Of course fibreglass insulation isnt necessary for heating purposes, but should I put it in...

    So I have a newly finished basement. When it was painted it seems that some of the drywall dust was still on the wall. When that was painted over it created a little bit of a texture. The overall surface is flat but there is some texture because of this. Will this cause a problem with a painted...

    I've been thinking about what I would ultimately like to have in our basement theatre (whenever that will happen), and my wife and I both love the idea of stone, or more likely faux stone cladding on the walls. I figure the randomness of the stone might serve as a decent diffuser for sound...

    Having followed along here and at the AVS forum, I'd come to the conclusion that I'd do the wall behind my AT screen with 2" OC703 and use 2" OC703 for corner bass traps. But, I was going to line the side and back walls with 1" Linacoustic covered by GOM. However, it turns out that the local...
