First off - welcome to HTS! :wave:Hello everyone,
I'm new to the forum, but I've been lurking for a little while, trying to learn more.
I am moving into a house and want to put a media room for mostly movies and sports into a room in the basement.
The room is 88" tall, 11.5' wide, and 30.5' long. It doesn't have any windows. It's basically a long room with an entry about 16' back from the front wall.
I want a projector, a 110-120" screen, and 5.1. 3D is not a priority. Later, I would like to add a zone for music upstairs, but that will be in another budget. I don't have any components and don't mind buying used or refurbished equipment.
I appreciate any feedback and suggestions.
I am not sure if the room is finished or not, but with that much length, I would seriously consider do a front baffle wall and an AT screen as it really takes all the distraction of the speakers away from the visual experience.
How flexible is the mounting location for the projector? This will help trim the list a bit as some projectors may not be able to give you enough FL for that size screen at your distance.
Next, what is more important - audio or visual? This will help to determine how to allocate your budget.
I am sure there is more I am missing, but this should help get us started.
