Ray,

WOW! Well Done. I love the entrance paint color. I'm building a 13'Wx21'L HT room, and your thoughtful details really help me to change few things in my drawing. I've been looking your awesome pics and can't find anything needs change. Was installation done by you? I'm thinking to hire Best Buy Magnolia or Specialty installer people to do mine? Who should I choose? Thanks for helping.

Very nice indeed! I really like the blue you use. To be honest it might be because at least from most of the pictures it looks quite similar to the blue with a mix of grey thrown in that I have in my upstairs.

Although it's already been asked, I'm curious as well if you did the work yourself or if you had it done for you? I looked through the other pictures and didn't see any from the actual framing stage. Any of those available by chance?

Well...the million dollar question...."Did I do it my self?"
The answer is "YES"....well....most of it.
The basic room I had built.....But I designed it.
Room was drywalled by contractor....but my wife and I finished it...paint and moldings.
Custom carpet done by my father inlaw....complete room and risers.
All electrical was done by electrician....but I layed it out.
All the low voltage stuff..IE..cables for projector, inwall speaker wires, network cable, and all sat and cable feeds ...done by ME.
Design and integration.....done by ME
Equipment install and calibration....done by ME.

Hope this helps.

Chen-Shi...Chris
I don't know how handy you are...but it is all very easy to do.
I would not pay anyone to do this for me...cause I really enjoy the hobby..and this was the most fun thing I could think of doing.
I was completely hands on in the whole project....I can tell you were every wire is layed...cable routed.....and exactly how every piece of equipment integrates in the room.
This may be over whelming for some but I am ANAL like that...and I have little to no problems trouble shooting any thing in this room because of it.
If I had not been so hands on in my room...I don't think I would have as much pride in it as I do.
I am NOT a professional installer...and feel that if I can pull this off...almost anyone with a little guidance can do the same or better.
That being said....if you have questions or need info..Chris...I would be more then happy to lend a hand...just PM me ..and I will get you my phone number.

PS...Palmdale is just a little north of Irvine...but still in SoCal..

RayJr,

Very well done! And like I say often in this forum, "Make sure you find the time to enjoy it!"


A question: Is the "Welcome to the Coronado Home Theater" logo on the screen from a custom-made intro DVD or perhaps something I could create and burn onto a DVD myself?

That screen was made for me by "Reaper" over at AVS Forum.
I love the custom screen.

I was going to go w/ Navy Blue and Black, but opted for red/black.

How come u kept a white ceiling? Don't u get glare from the projector?

The room looks amazing. Great job!

I just like the Hellraiser poster. Your suffering will be legendary, even for hell.

Ray:

I love the HT. The only thing that I personally would have done is to put columns on the side walls. That way you can split the side walls up and hang your poster in the space provided between each column.

Great space and HT. If I only had the room....................

Saw your HT on another site, but I will say it again, your attention to speaker placement is apparent and well done. I also like the ceiling and two tone paint.

Good job!
