    I am wondering about building my own rack for my equipment. Wood or metal. I have a father-in-law that is a welder. I was thinking open sides and back due to storage room to access equip. This is for a Home Theater in the basement.

    My Second question is I am thinking of setting my Da-lite 45x80 Perma wall screen back into alcove 2' is there any reason not to do this. Projector is the Sony 1272.

    The Home Theater is not built yet. Owens Corning has a new system for basements I was wondering if anybody has used this. Or if conventional stud and sheetrock is better.

    Thanks for any info,

    Nathan

    Nathan,
    If you can do metal (well, your f-i-l, that is[​IMG]), it's very professional! Especially open backs will give proper access to the connections.
    I cannot think of a reason why the screen would not go well into an alcove, presuming the projection isn't hindered in any way (no edges in between).
