Note : Sorry for my bad english.
I am in the process of converting my living room to a dual purpose dedicated HomeTheater cum Stereo Listening room. I have attached a rough layout of the living room with the adjacent rooms and a detailed layout of the living room with dimensions.
Following are the color representations in the picture:
*Speakers : Green
*Windows : Blue
*Pillar : Grey
*LCD / Projector screen : Pink
- Living Room dimension 16' x 11' 4" x 9' 6".
- Main Door entry is at the left bottom. A passage to the living room to Dining room is there at the corner and a pillar at the opposite wall.
- To keep the LCD TV and the Projector screen at the wall opposite to the entrance door. (Pink). The LCD and screen will be located to the center of the room width (not centered to the wall) so that the LCD will be more towards the right side of the 8ft wall and the screen will go out of the wall (Pull down screen). The passage will be closed with a convertible sliding door w/ acoustics to get the feel of a dedicated room.
- The flooring will be wooden.
- The Floorstand speakers (green) will be ~5ft into the room but not much from the side walls (1ft max).
- Listening position will be ~10ft from the speakers
- ~1.6ft will be left at the back side of the listening couch / recliner.
- Thick drapers with blackout cloth for the windows.
- False ceiling with mood lighting
- DIY 15" 8cuft subwoofer will be below the projection screen lying flat on the ground (like a furniture cabinet). Center channel will be on top of it.
- The electronics will be on the right side wall of the listening couch
- Acoustics (Help required)..
Please help me in finding the locations (with respect to the picture) for mounting the acoustic panels (both the absorbers and diffusers) and the density required for them including the walls, corners and ceiling.
Note: Aesthetics is not considered at this time, will be fine tuned once the locations are finalised.
Also suggestions for a different layout is also welcome.
