    >Greetings the following is a rather long message from a 1st time poster<

    The building of my house in corpus christi texas began 1 june. we are considering having a drop down projector and screen installed in the family room. the room is 19' x 18' and is not being designed speciffically as a HT room. in my internet research i have garned experienced information overload and still feel as though i have only touched the tip of what HT has to offer. I contacted a installed in texas on my last visit back in april. oh, by the way i currently am living in virginia and will be moving @the last of oct, when the house is completed. the guy in contacted in texas, i have called and emailed him numerous times but no reply thus far.

    i do realize that the cost of such a set-up in the low range is @10-12k, mid range 13-17k and high range $$$$$$ to the sky, or something like that.

    i understand what the basic installation package entails, and i also understand that from the basic one has to sorta contain his imagination or the budget can be total demolished.

    i looked at some of the members hardware packages but did not understand some of the more complicated ones.

    What i am asking for is the following:

    1. what would a "basic" package look like (parts named)
    2. the referral for a HT installer in the corpus christi texas area.

    TIA for the help of the HT guru's

    The June issue has a very nice article describing all of the elements ("naming them") of a Home Theater. There is also a very nice article about how and where to hang your projector with such factors as screen size, seating arrangements and such taken into consideration. I too am in the design process of my new dedicated HT room and the information so far in all 9 issues of this magazine have been worth every penny of my subscription and then some. I would highly recommend getting the latest issue and reading it. You can also call and get back issues of the other eight issues as well.
