Default RodChester's Basement Theater

Well, after many years of wanting a real home theater, I finally got one. So here I am showing off with a ton of pics. Enjoy. Also, because I am vain and want stupid things, if you like my theater please take a moment to click over to the other pics under my avatar and rate it. I know it doesn’t matter, but I want that “Top Ranked Home Theater” gold star. Thanks.

Thanks for the comments. I’m pretty happy with how everything turned out. I’ve got a bit of an echo between the screen and seats that I need to figure out. Other than that the room is a ton of fun.

Nice room and collection! Congrats on making your dream happen. It is tough to say for sure but the echo could be somewhat tamed with a couple of acoustic panels in some strategic areas.

Yeah I plan to get a couple panels and put them on the side walls. Just from doing a clapping test, thatís what I think is causing the echo. Itís not very bad when watching a movie, but I can hear it a bit during quieter dialog only scenes.

Congrats on that great setup/room! Very jealous . It’s home theaters like this one that inspire me to have one once I get a house.

Try checking the corners as well for the echo. I’ve noticed they cause them a lot of the times too.

Thanks. Your setup is super slick and I like it a lot too. For myself, I was looking for something dark and cozy. That is why I ended up with the room I have now.

So I have been trying to come up with a name for my theater room and I finally settled on one that I like. The Blue Harvest Theater.

Minor picture update today. I added my Nintendo Switch to the setup. Also, added a motion activated LED light strip under one of the shelves in the cabinet to make things a bit more visible.

Just a minor update today. I finally got the ELAC metal sign I needed to finish off my wall display. So as of now I'd say my room is finally complete. Now all there is to do is keep adding movies and enjoy the room.

I watched Hellboy 2 today and was really impressed with the bass on the soundtrack. All the hits and thumps really hit hard and clear. I’ve been pretty happy with how my room sounds, but this was the first time I really felt the bass punch.

Got a couple collectibles added to the theater room. A Mezco One:12 Spider-Man and the Terminator 2 endoarm. I really like how dynamic Spider-Man looks hanging from his web. And the endoarm turned out to be fairly cool.
