    We used a false wall to surround our 64" Pioneer Elite. Click on my signature below to see the website. It also shows how we built the surround. Good luck!

    Where to Buy Carpet & Color Ideas?

    Don't forget to check the carpet outlets for price$. Also consider commercial carpet with multiple colors. Blacks and grays are nice with the burgundy, but so is gold and green. You can actually call your black chairs your "neutral" color in the pallette. Take a painted card with you to various...

    Darkening a bright room

    You can also get blackout liner for draperies. Try JC Penney or Sears for ready mades. Or you can buy the fabric and have them sewn as liners into draperies. most rental places allow "white" draperies to show. Since the linings are white, it would work. pam

    Theater Recliners

    Scott, I have the Berkline 090s. Three are electric, and 4 are manual. The front ones are curved (wedge arms) and the three in the rear are straight across. Mine are also a combination of leather and leather match. We have been very pleased with them. Ditto with Darren on where to purchase them.

    Building a Dedicated Home Theater

    SW, Be aware that your square room is not acoustically desirable. Have the consultants mentioned that to you? I would spend some time (weeks) on this forum and read, read, read. What I may think is the BEST piece of equipment may not be the right one for you. But you can get a general...

    can i get away with not having a sub if i have really good mains?

    We built our speaker system bit by bit. We began with the towers, then added the center. Soon after, we purchased the sub, and finally the rears. It worked well for us and our budget - we didn't sacrifice bacause we hadn't heard what we were missing yet! Now that it is complete, whooeee!:D Pam

    BrianKR, We found ours at a store called NB Handy. They carry all that ductwork kind of thing. It was right on $200 for my roll of 100 feet, but I went with the 60" wide roll VS the 48" roll because of my angled wall height. I covered everything with it and I still have some left over. Pam...

    BrianKR, Linacoustic RC is the closest thing to JM's Theatershield in acoustics. It is also available and reasonable. We have it on all our walls up to ear level for absorption. We have the upper walls bare for reflection. They are also angled(just because that's the way the room is!)...

    Speaker fabric can be found at Joann's in the upholstery dept. Ask them where they have it in the store. They might be out of it. I have also found it at Radio Shack. (These two are the generic black stretchy stuff) Now we get to the cadillac versions - Guilford of Maine...
