    Anthony, there is really nothing special about doing arches. As you can see, they are made out of plywood, so it's just a matter of attaching the drywall to the them and finishing.

    Brian - thanks! As I can see, your setup is not too shabby, either [​IMG] Once I get the seats, I will probably make some acoustic panels for the walls - just like yours. The "boss" struck down the idea of linacoustic, batting, etc... covered with fabric [​IMG]

    Yes, the walls ARE painted orange-ish color... Due to poor lighting conditions, the color on the picture is "little" off, though. I was pleasantly surprised when I turned on the rope light in the tray ceiling and the glow matched the walls almost perfectly!

    Outstanding work - your level of detail is amazing. I too used several arches in my HT (a very nice touch) and can appreciate all of your hard work.

    Keep the pix coming...

    Awesome job Stan!

    Looks great Stan. If you don't mind, what are the dimensions of your theater room?

    Stan...how are the rope lights controlled....are they direct to a normal switch, or are they to a switched outlet up there? Is there a control box in the recess? I want to do the same....btw I just ordered wood today...will be here tomorrow and will begin my basement this weekend. VERY Excited to get started.

    -Jason

    Jason - the rope light is plugged into a switched outlet. At this point, every light is on a dimmer, but I'm seriously considering getting a wireless solution (Lutron, X-10, or similar).

    StanG: Very impressed dude, something like that is definately worth doing, with your rear seats do you have them raised at all? if so by how much?

    At the moment I am renting, so cannot do mods like you have done. Very jealous! ehehe[​IMG]
