    Drop ceiling options that don't suck?

    Our home theater and game room are going to be in our currently unfinished basement. Since there's so much conduit and piping running along various parts of the ceiling, the guys I'm working with suggested using drop ceiling. That way, if something were to go wrong, we wouldn't have to tear a...

    New Budget Basement HT

    Hi, I have a friend who has been putting together a HT in his basement and it's nice watching football games on a 120" screen. He has a BenQ HT1085ST, which has a great picture. I looked on Amazon and they don't really sell them now. Are there any projectors with similar quality, but cheaper...
