    After much gnashing of teeth and other parts, I'm done working on my theater.

    No, really. Check it out: http://members.directvinternet.com/~mstryker/ht/
    Still gotta carpet the riser, and the blackout shades are being made as we speak (I'm using towels right now, that was the only fabric I had around that completely blocked out light).

    Looks like a real one Matt [​IMG].
    Love those chairs.
    One question: the fan. Is it there to help cool the projector? What about the noise?

    Nice job Matt. Looks like a right habitable setting to camp out for the weekend [​IMG]

    After buying the LT150, I had originally decided to build a hushbox for it; the problem was I was very fearful of fan failure (and the resultant meltdown of the PJ since it would be in a closed box). I decided on a more open air design, and used the clip-on fan because of cost and noise; I run it on its lowest setting and still get plenty of circulation. The internal fans on the LT150 are much noiser (especially when you invert the thing) than the clip on.

    This is a semi-temporary setup, as my wife and I are looking at houses to move to; hopefully something with a nice 16x20 room....

    Thanks for all those tips on the riser stuff; building it was relatively painless. Now if I could just get that big ripple (see the the picture of the screen) out of the DaLite, I'd be a happy man.

    Wow, all that is packed in a 12X12? And in an apartment, yet!?

    Nice work! You've definately got the most out of your space.

    Lets just say that the neighbors are probably not big SVS fans; they tend to party pretty late anyway. And if anyone is interested in seats like mine, the guy still has 120 or so left. He even threw in an extra, so if anyone ever spills something, I can swap it out.
