No, I cannot explain it.
I’ve spent the past few weeks working on a complete home theater remodel. The room was basically gutted and everything put in anew. I think the results came out great!
This pic shows the new door between the theater and the game room (also being remodeled a bit). You can also see the floor and crown molding that hides all of the wires. In the corner is a floor-to-ceiling bass trap that I made out of 1×4 lumber, insulation, chicken wire, and fabric. The lights on the front speakers are connect to a remote control switch. The center console will eventually be replaced with something nicer. For now, it holds the center speaker and the remote/game controller chargers.
You can see the riser here along with rope lighting. These lights are on a remote control as well. The side TV-trays will be replaced with end tables as soon as we find some we like. You can also see the other bass trap in the corner.
You can see the new media wall in this pic. The very left is the server cabinet that houses all of my gear. You can see the new door that goes in between the kids play room and the theater as well. Hanging a 36″ door was fairly difficult, but worth it! The media shelves are lit with remote-dimmable track lighting.
Here’s a view of the front row and riser.
There’s still some work to be done though. I want to get new end tables, a sectional sofa for the riser, mic and guitar stands (for rock band), and posters and lighting along the back wall. I might add more bass traps as well, but the sound is pretty tight right now so I may not.
