I've got my screen, my Dish DVR, seats, bass shakers, some decor, popcorn machine, the sign, and a rug for the floor to absorb sound. It's perfect!

Nick, did you really need a screen that big?

The wet bar is going just outside the home theater.

And yes, I think that from 3 feet away, that 19" screen will be WAY better than my 106" I had before. I mean, geez... I am like 3 feet away instead of 15 feet away!

Big improvement.

Can you tell us about your room treatments? That wall color is quite unusual. Eddie Bauer?

Oh, no no no...

I didn't want the sound to transfer through the walls, so I did the best in treatments... I am using exposed vapor barrier over insulation to create a free flowing decoupled "wall" that will move WITH the sound to absorb it instead of be solid and rigid and transfer it through to the studs.... Simply amazing.

For those that are wondering, here is what V3.0 was. Such an irregular shaped room..

And for those wondering, now that we've moved, my Axioms are sitting right behind me in my temporary office (supposed to be the dining room, but until the office gets built in the basement.....)

NIck, whenever I stack my speakers (storage or whatnot) I always try to put a towel between the two--just in case.

Your VP150 on top of the M60 speakers is giving me all sorts of anxiety.

Nick, I can't wait to see your V4 theater. You will probably beat me finishing my V3 downstairs, texturing is coming soon.
