It's amazing how many issues come up when building a home theater room! My question today is what would be a good height for a stage and a riser. Obviously, the riser should be high enough to allow for good viewing over the heads of the folks in the front row, but not so high as to create a hazard. Also, the height should correspond to the commonly available lumber sizes. (Am I answering my own question??) In my case, I've got a very low ceiling to consider (7'2"), so I don't think I would want to go with a two step riser. Thanks!
