    I honestly don't know where to post this question. So bear with me for now. My home theater is situated in my basement. I love the sound. No echos.

    About the basement, it's carpeted, drywalls and drop ceilings too. I'm planning to remove the carpet and replace it with hardwood flooring. Is it a bad idea?

    Thanks,

    Ronneil

    Its going to sound worse but look better!

    Anything you can get in the theater to absorb sound (carpet) rather than reflect sound (hardwood) is going to make it sound better. I would imagine the room is going to sound boomier and brighter with a hardwood floor.

    Do a search for hardwood floor in the HT interiors section and I'll bet you get some good reading.

    If you have a wooden floor, just add a nice huge rug. This was it will be less of a echo. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If you are going to cover it up with a rug, might as well have carpet. I love hardwood floors, but never in an HT.
