I'm new to these forums, but I've been searching and reading them for quite a while. I'm in the process of building my house and I have a dedicated 20x20' theater room in the basement. I've drawn over the architecture plans my thoughts on how it should be built, but I'm coming to you guys for suggestions or gotchas or what the heck where you thinking
I'm attaching the drawing to this post but I'm looking specifically right now for:
1. Speaker system - I plan on using closed box bookshelf speakers built into the columns/pilasters with speaker grills. Potentially the Klipsch RB-61 II for both the front L/R and side L/R. I'm also looking for the center to be built into the wall/ unfinished window opening using the Infinity Primus PC351. Finally for the back I'm looking at doing Bipolar Surrounds such as the Klipsch RS-42 II. I plan on throwing a sub in one of the corners, I'm thinking initially the back left corner. I "think" I'll be ok with just one sub, let me know if you think otherwise.
2. Projector and Theater Seating - I plan on having a 1' riser with a set of Pallisar theater chairs. The front row I'm estimating to be about 9' away from the screen. The screen will be a cinescope 2.35:1 screen I'll DIY build with acoustic screen material. The back row will sit about 16.5' away from the screen. The back row will be at about a 38° field of view angle, while the front row will be at a staggering 68°. I'm a little concerned this will be too much but look to you guys for thoughts. If I shrink the screen size the back row gets even smaller.
3. Atmosphere - I plan on including a star field and "crazy led" rope lighting in the tray ceiling and also in the riser lip.
Anyways lets start here and see what suggestions you have.
