    I'm about to venture into the basement-to-HT world, and have a space of approximately 13-feet wide by 25-feet long. What should I do about the sound dampening, cover the dry wall with carpet, curtains, or what? Same question for the floors. Also, I am using my RF3's as back surrounds, and would like to know if it is okay to elevate them up off the floor to a matching height with my surrounds (RS7's), to a height of about six or seven feet. Front speakers are RF7's and RC7, all powered by a Denon 5800. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated on any and all aspects of this expensive venture. Thanks.

    I would definatley go with some kind of carpet on the floor.
    As for the walls it depends what your budget is. If you have the cash go for some of the acoustic material thats out there. I'm sure someone here could reccomend a good vendor.
