I'm very new to the whole HT scene but I have been frantically researching as I get ready to build. A little background before I ask my question. I will be working with a completely blank slate in the basement so I have nearly every option under the sun available to me. I have a rough idea of my room which will be 24' X 14' X 8.5' I refuse to start building until I have a firm grasp on what I am going to do. I have been researching like mad and I know Screen size is not based off of what space you have but rather where you are siting. During my research I stumbled across a Room Mode calculator by Harman. I entered my room data and here is what the tool spit back at me. So my question is can someone shed a bit more light on this for me. If I am reading and doing it right I should have my seating at about 12' which would be dead center of the room, correct? I plan on having 2 rows of 4 seats with a bar behind the back row of seats. If my above statement is correct do I split the difference between seat locations? Does it matter? Or do I only worry about where the person using the theater all the time(ME) will be sitting most of the time?
