After almost a year of work, my theater is now in a functional state, just in time for Christmas! I started this project back in march, and spent almost 9 months before that doing planning. Click on my gallery link for some pics. (more to come) Current Equipment list: BenQ PB6200 Projector Pioneer VSX-D810S Reciever Sharp DVD player Crown CH1 Pro Amp (subwoofer) SVS PC-Plus Sub 7x JBL S36II Studio Series Speakers The Room is 8'6" Wide by about 15' Long, taking up one-half of my garage. (Previous home owner had used the same space as an office) My DIY Screen is about 90" wide in a 16x9 format I've got auralex accoustical treatment on the ceiling, and a strip along the walls. I have two layers of drywall, separated by Mass Loaded Vinyl in the walls that provides excellent soundproofing (better than I expected) All in all, the accoustical component of this project turned out better than I hoped. I need to replace my old DVD player (soon), and also my sub amp (which is currently borrowed). Later on I will replace my pioneer receiver, probably with the outlaw separates, and add an accousticly transparent screen, and a bit more foam to trim things out. Special thanks are owed to "The Driftwood" HT for providing a proof-of-concept for a garage theater, and everyone else on the HTF for ideas, inspiration, and motivation.
