    Hey Gang! I finally modified my riser to bring it up to "appropriate" seating height so folks in the back row can "clean and clearly" see over the front row.

    Follow link in sig to see what I did! [​IMG]

    pfft Peter,
    Erik's theatre is ...ah - ok at best, nottn special to see here! :b [​IMG]

    Man Erik are you ever going to stop tweaking your room?
    How much foot room did you leave when the seats are down?
    I am going to have to raise my riser (that sounds funny) when I install my screen and projector.

    Do you have any other upgrades or modifictations planned?

    Brian, thanks buddy! I probably won't "ever" stop tweaking the room...it's my business! [​IMG] There is about 20" or so of feet room before the edge of the new riser when the seats are down.

    Upgrades? Well, finish my rear curtains (over the window), new PJ mount, heck new PJ at some point, and possible some other sound treatments.

    20" is perfect.
    I will be lucky if I can squeeze out 16" from the front of the seat with the new chairs I am going to purchase. I have a lot of measuring / planning to do.

    Tweaking your room will only make it better, if that's possible. (you need to post more often / your room is a learning tool for DIY HT people) Just don't get too crazy like some that tear it down and start over.
    I might tear some down myself and my wife is not liking the idea at all! [​IMG]

    I told her if she didn't shoot down my garage conversion idea I wouldn't have too. [​IMG]
    She isn't buying that excuse. :b

    Brian, thanks buddy! As much as I'd like to tear some things down and do certain aspects over, because you betcha I would...the "shoulda, woulda, coulda" effect! [​IMG] But I'm finding it's much better to enjoy what you have rather than worrying about what you don't!

    Too bad on the garage conversion excuse...nice attempt! [​IMG]
