    Ever had someone over to your HT and they say stuff like this:

    "Man, I'd rather go to a movie theater then here"

    "Dude, this place looks so fake"

    "I wish I never came"

    Anyone ever do that to you guys?

    This one is especially for the guys with Big-ole' front projection systems with theater seats and the whole sha-bang.

    This thread is ALSO for people who've had bad times in a REGULAR movie theater.

    I remember once,

    While seeing Mission to Mars, during a storm, ALL of the electricity went out for almost an hour.

    What a waste of money!

    Nathan, I can't say that I have had an experience like that.
    My HT is my own little getaway and only close friends and family actually know that I have one. And they love it!
    And if they were to say anything like that I would escort them out.[​IMG]

    Hmm.

    I'm going to wait until after Christmas (Projector and new speaker wire come in then, thanks Mom & Dad).

    Seeing as alot of teenagers are narrow-minded and very opinionated, I'm waiting until then to have my first screening to he public.

    I want to avoid any fist-fights over "my shelf systems is better than your HT"

    Sheesh,

    I won't even let my parents use my HT until it's full complete and at it's very best.

    Am I screwed up?

    I had to explain why rear speakers are needed for surround sound once.

    Need I say more?

    From a cute girl to me: "So, is your penis big enough now?" She just didn't understand. Penis envy is for guys with sport cars, not HT.
    J Fo. used to have a 20" TV and Bose cubes. That was pretty horrifying [​IMG].

    My projector has a 2 power-off switches. One cuts the power but allows the fan to cool down the bulb, the other cuts the power outright. Of course, the first switch is the one to use. For the first 8 months, it was used improperly by others so the bulb would sit hot. The result was the bulb exploding 3 times and having to be replaced (by Warranty luckily for me). I took care of that switch problem.

    The worst time was sitting watching a movie and hearing the bulb go pop and the picture disappearing.
