Well I'm getting some contractors in to give us estimates on finishing our basement. Obviously of most importance is the HT room! I'll be mounting a CRT projector with probably a painted wall screen. I'll be doing the low voltage wiring/conduits myself. I plan on having a dedicated 20amp circuit...maybe an addition one (or 15 amp.) My biggest concerns are soundproofing the room. For the ceiling having RG13 insulation (or something similar) in the joists with resilent channeling and then 5/8" sheetrock. I'd like to use recessed lighting but am afraid that may eliminate some of the ceiling soundproofing. For the two new walls (side and rear) having staggered stud design, RG13 and 5/8" sheetrock. I'm also considering/debating using something like Erik F's roofing material (save $$$) for additional soundproofing. As you can see by the design diagram I'd like to include 2 sets of double french doors as entry in the HT room. Mainly to give easy access/openness between the two rooms for guest and party-type occasions. I'm concerned at how the doors would negatively affect soundproofing. I was thinking of 2 sets of exterior insulated/weatherstripped type french doors (like I have for my walkout basement access.) These have glass panels. Though I'm sure I could find solid core french doors also. Anyone use them in their HT? Any suggestions appreciated including construction, layout, wiring runs, additional outlets etc. TIA!
