Finally got around to repainting the ht room. After seeing the paint colors in other theaters, I deceided to go with a dark blue. Went with a eggshell finish. Next up will be installing double doors. Here's some pics.

Thanks guys, The wife picked out the color. If I could only convince her to paint the ceiling black. She said that would make the room too dark. Maybe when I get the FP she'll cave inPosted Image

Stupid question. What are the red things on the walls. are they just to make it look theatery or do they serve a purpose?

Thanks Guys, Peter, the panels on the walls do serve a purpose. They are absorptive and reflective panels. The absorptive panels are for the first order reflections. They also help tame the sound around the front soundstage.(I don't like the echo effect) The reflective panels, witch are in the rear add to the spaciousness (sp) of the sound. (to my ears anyways) I'm no pro when it comes to room acoustics so it was trial and error and what sounded good to me. Plus I like the way they look.Posted Image

So the absorbative ones are in the front and sides and the refletive ones are in the back? What is a first order reflection? PS. I agree, they do look good.

Peter, I'm sure that you could do a search on reflective points. There are people around here that know all about that stuff. What I did was from my seating position had the wife hold a mirror along the left wall. When I could see the left speaker in the mirror is where I put an absorptive panel. I did the same with the other wall. I did the same from a couple of other positions. I didn't really need to have them quite that tall, but I liked the look. Home Theater Mag. had an artical about a room which was a bit too lively. This is kinda what they did. Thats how I got my idea.
