Ill just have to deal with it I guess, until I can do some treatment. Either way its going to sound way better than it did in my old house that had wood paneling.

I would like to ceiling mount my projector now, but the instructions that came with the mount says you should have a trained installer do so. So for now I am not sure were im going to put my projector. May have to find a tall sturdy bookself for now.

Looking for advice on what I can do.
My home theater is near the HVAC system in my house. When it kicks on it gets quite noisy. Especially the fan running. Is their anything I can do to soundproof the room its in or is replacing the whole thing with a newer quieter system my only expensive option?

Nothing I can do?
Also noticed most of the noise comes from a vent that is on the outside wall of the little room the unit is in. I know I cant block it permanantly cause it seems like maybe an air intake vent for the system. But I did put a towel over it for a few seconds and it quieted it down significantly.

Played around with a Stranger Things type generator. I love the results this would make a great sign for my home theater. http://makeitstranger.com/

Still wanting to ceiling mount my projector. Who would you call to install it? Any idea how much they would charge?
I am just afraid of doing it myself and not doing it right. I wouldn't want my projector to fall down.

Default Need help getting screws for ceiling mount.

So I have decided to go on and install my projector mount by myself. I have found the joist in the ceiling, and the mount I am using has two places to screw it into the ceiling. However it does not have the screws to do so, so my question is what kind should I use?

I am leaning toward #14 wood screws in either 2 1/2" or 3" lengths. Are two of those enough to hold my mount that is about 4lbs and my projector that is about 19lbs?

Thinking of using those specific screws come from my research of the installation manuals of a few different mounts. So if that's what they say to use I should be ok right?

Couldn't find any #14 screws at the hardware store, so I ended up picking up two #12 screws in 2 1/2" length. Just hope they hold.

That's a crazy price. Glad I decided to do it on my own.

Tomorrow is the day I mount it. Maybe I'll hang something from the mount that weighs 40 pounds or so just to see how it holds up before putting my projector up there.

Got it mounted up yesterday. Now I need to find some kind of cable routing solution as running the wires through the ceiling is not feasible.
What is everyone's thoughts on Wiremold products?
