How do you have 'no ceiling'? Is there roof but with open rafters and no insulation? Just curious as you may need to put something up their to control the temperature.

As for the 'all brick', you'll need to do acoustical treatments. That will be an extremely live room, especially in the bass.

Full drapes will just take all the life out of the upper mids and highs and leave the bass out of control - even moreso since the walls are brick and won't flex like more standard construction.

Now you can have a "my room." I have one of those. I tell my wife that the rest of the house is hers, but that room is MINE, MINE, MINE:) Décor is all black, nearly wall to wall speakers, man sized recliners, bass traps galore, you get the picture.

So, count it as a blessing, our friend. Better days ahead:D.

A glass-half-full kind of guy. And yes, the A/V-man-cave can be a wondrous realm, no WAF to be considered. GO FOR IT!

Klh asw10-120
Rear channels 2 pannasonic sb-hf950 ceiling mounted

I am very motivated, but the more i read, more aware i become that i have no idea what i am doing.

Really open to suggestions.

Are the double doors already there? If not, I would consider doing a single entry door. That way, you would have room to do rear traps as well as front. I think my biggest worry would be taming the low end...

Not sure what your plans are for seating, but if it was my room I would probably go with one row at around the 10-11' mark. If you need more seating than that, I would do bean bag chairs for floor seating.

I have never had this problem... When we looked for homes there were certain things I had to have and they had to agree to it.

1: Home Theater room
2: Garage
3: Pond area

In my current house I have all 3 but I want a more dedicated HT room and will be converting the garage to a HT (someday when finances allow).
