Construction of this 13'3" X 32', 16 seat theater begain in April 2004 and was completed in February 2005. The theater features a 96" X 54" widescreen image projected on a Stewart Firehawk screen by a Runco VX1000ci DLP projector & DHD controller. The 7.1 sound system includes a Denon 3805 A/v processor and Definitive Technology BP7001SC main speakers, a C/L/R 2500 center speaker and four BP2X surround speakers. A Denon DVD-2200 audio-video/super audio CD player and a High-definition TV cable converter supply the sources. A Panamax MAX 5300 surge/line conditioning system protects the entire theater system. Remote control is via an iPronto tsi6400 which controls everything in the theater including the 10-zone Lutron lighting system. A High-definition game port is available for use with X-Box and Playstation game consules. Hope you enjoy seeing the Noll Family Home Theater. Posted Image

very nice. Talk to me about that ceiling. Is it a nail-up panel, or a drop-into t-bar, or embossed wallpaper? It looks amazing. What's the price like (if you don't mind)?

Excellent work all around. Thanks for sharing.

Aaron,

The ceiling is Armstrong 12" X 12" Tin Look ceiling tile #1240. Cost approx $1.35 per tile. It comes in the standard white color. It is paintable. I sprayed mine with cans of Dupli-Color Gold Laquer spray paint after tile was installed on furring strips.

Hi David

Wow ! That's one professional looking HT. Did you do all the work yourself?

Is the wood that you've used for the columns oak? Or something else?

That's a very funky faux finish on the walls. My wife and I did a two-colour finish on our livingroom wall, and I know how hard that was.

And is the ceiling the square metal panels? They look awesome.

Truly incredible. Love to see all the pictures I can of that one.

Tom.

Looks great Dave! I like the bar/counter idea in the back for additional seating.

Tom,

All of the work up to the cabinetry and finished trim I did myself (my wife helped!). The trim is all oak. Columns are 3/4" plywood sides with a "wainscot door panel" on the face which match my cabinets. The left side columns hide steel support poles. A local home theater installer did all of the trim and cabinets, and, of course, all of the components. He was there for me if I needed anything along the way.

The funky paint job was done by a local artist. She can do all types of painting, especially murals. I gave her a picture of a local structure fire with a lot of flames, and this is her artistic impression. She used five colors and only a 3" brush.

Ceiling is Armstrong tile. (Look above at post #6)

Nicely done. The faux finishing really stands out. Also like how you integrated the hush box. How far is your first row from the screen? Also interested in your comments on the FireHawk. I really need to update my pictures again.

Jay,

My first row is 11'6" from screen to eyes of seated viewer. As for the Firehawk screen, really no comments, looks super to me and I have nothing to compare it with.

David:

I added the link to your gallery listing in your profile. It shows up as a link house in your toolbar with a red door.

You can tell that a lot of time and effort went into making it turn out so well.

How do you find that with a 96" screen?

Other than the image being larger than field of view, making your eyes scan the picture, I find image is excellent. I sat at 9'6" when I 'auditioned' this set-up and it blew me away. I actually have my middle row calibrated as the sweet-spot, which is 16' away from the screen. My four kids like sitting in the front row.

Great looking theater area David. Central PA? May I ask where? Don't see too many home theater owners on here from central PA.

Excellent job, very classy too. A lot of things you did would be things I want to also include in my future dedicated HT. How long did all this work take? and final question, did you give up a room to have this?
