    Hey, I'm to the final steps of my first HT room. I'll post pictures when its all done. I wanted to see if anything should be put in while the carpet is out. Everyone seems to have little tips that make thing sound better so I just wanted to see before its all done.

    Thanks!

    The only thing I can think of is if you wanted to run speaker cables or something under carpet. But you probably don't.

    Paint. It's so much easier to paint when you don't have to worry about dropcloths.

    Can't wait to see the pics.

    I'd make sure and clean up the construction mess, vacuum out the A/C ducting and so forth. That way none of the mess is trapped under the carpet.

    All sounds good.
    I ran the speaker cable in wall so thats set to go and I did paint. I didn't want any mistakes, and I didn't want to paint around the trim [​IMG]

    I might toss some extra speaker wire under the carpet so if I ever decide to get a butt kicker I'm set to go [​IMG]

    Carpet goes in tomorrow at 8:30. New couch after that. Should be fun. I'll post pics soon
