    Hello,

    This is my first post here though I have been reading this forum for many years.

    My wife and I are about to embark on what I consider a fairly large (and others have called fairly crazy) project.

    Because:
    1. In Toronto swimming pools are only usable for about 3 months of the year, and
    2. We have maxxed out our above-ground space from a zoning perspective,

    we are considering digging out our back yard and building a subterrainian home theatre and games room.

    Since many of you have a great deal more experience in this realm than we do, I thought that I would try and pick your brains with regard to design and implementation of our plans.

    The prospective plan can be found here:
    www3.sympatico.ca/dgrossman/JAN27-01.pdf
    (not a URL because the system won't let me yet)

    The ceiling height at the front (right hand side) of the theatre is 10' with 2 12" risers as indicated. We hope to have 3 rows of seating (one at each level) and some exercise machines at the back. The mechanical room will contain sump pumps and a backup generator for same.

    I am planning to purchase a new fp unit to replace my Sony VW10HT and a larger screen than I currently have (106" diagonal). I am also not averse to replacing my amp (currently Pioneer Elite (VSX-29TX)).

    Any suggestions that you may have with respect to design, equipment and/or implementation would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Matt Grossman

    That's quite a bomb shelter. Looks like a fun project.

    Anyone have any thoughts on how to improve this design?
