I think that the room need to be wider (there is only aprox 18" between the seat and the wall) ... I think you need more than that, I have 11" in that space, and sometimes you have to be a contorsionist to get to the second row ..:yes::yes:... I'm assuming that if you have somebody in a wheelchair you will acomodate them in the back row, Right??....I appreciate all of the suggestions. I've been giving it a lot of thought and here's where I'm at for now. After looking at some theater seating sizes I've decided to add a ft to the width... HxWxL of 9x12x23. ... I'm trying to keep things in the house wheel chair accessible for when I get old and feeble. Any suggestions on how much I need to lower that area for a second row of seats to have a good view?...
If you make the room wider, you will have more space to a install the speakers, without changing the screen size as the other suggestions ....
I have a riser, it is 14" high ... there is a formula to calculate the height (I don't remember where I got it, but it was on the internet and ask you for distance, height of seat, height of the person that will be seated, height of the screen from floor, etc.) .... I think if you lower the front 14" will be okay ... but maybe you need less than that ...:scratch::scratch:
