Currently, I am in the planning stage of building a new home and having met with the designer a few times. Based on the information I learned from this and other sites my basement home theatre room has ended looking like … (he’s only drawn in the screen and front speakers) My current 7.1 system works well and will transition as is. Seating will probably be one 4 person leather recliner. All of the components will be in the wall behind the viewer in an open mechanical room and there will be no ambient light. The projector (Panasonic PT-AE2000U?) will be mounted at the rear of the room at about 16-17’. I plan to stagger the studs in the wall, install carpeting and hang a solid door. I was hoping for some feedback on the dimensions and layout? Are there any other building techniques I should consider?
