    Was wondering... would using a heavy texture before painting help with a home theater setup? Wouldn't it kill excessive light as well as give better accoustic properties?

    Just curious...

    Thanx!

    Hi JW,

    I am not an expert but I have a textured wall like you are talking about... I once asked if it helped with the sound at all and the answer I got is that it would take a pretty heavy texture to act as a diffusor... a texture with holes and peaks in the orders of 2 to 3 inch if i remember correclty from the answer.

    As for Light, I find that it helps a lot with light reflextion from the screen. I painted mine gray with a burgundi tint and I am very happy with the results.

    Hope this helps in your decision

    Dave

    thats what i was looking for! I figured it would help one way or another. I was more concerned about light than anything, i figured my current setup is a dark green untextured drywall that pushes a lot of glare from the screens reflection. Thanx!
