Greetings one and all!
I am in the planning phase of finishing my 1900 square foot basement. The most exciting feature of this undertaking is creation of a home theater - the first I have ever had (I do not count the Bose system that was on the upstairs television for obvious reasons: no highs, no lows: must be Bose!). The room size is large spanning 20' x 22' in using an open floor plan layout. After much deliberation and research, my finalized equipment list is as follows:
Television: Panasonic TC-P65VT50
Receiver: Integra DTR-70.4
Speakers (FR,FL): Bowers & Wilkins CM9
Speaker (Center): Bowers & Wilkins CM Centre 2
Surrounds: Bowers & Wilkins CCM 818
Universal Disc Player: Marantz 5007 Universal Disc Player
I am really excited about this project. The biggest challenge facing my layout is that the area is open to the billiards and game rooms (see attached floor plan). Please note in my floor plans that the walls that look like this "= = =" are invisible walls used for area definition only. Any acoustical recommendations you have would be greatly appreciated!
