Default My dedicated home theater room

Hi everyone, I am a new member and here is my very small dedicated room.
I had to put a lot of HT equipment in a small 12x14 ft room with 10 ft ceilings.

This is a custom built 12' x14' room. The walls have 6" studs with R 21 insullation and outer sound board. The inner walls have 2 layers of 5/8" drywall with a layer of loaded vinyl sound proofing sandwiched in between. The room has 1 window cut out with 2 full double glazed windows to keep in the sound. The 9'solid core bifold doors are completely weather stripped with piano hinges between 2 middle bifolds.. The room is so sound proofed, I can turn up the volume full blast and not bother anyone watching TV 2 rooms away! The walls have 4" fiberglass custom cloth covered sound absorbers with bass traps in all corners,ceiling and floors all bought from Kinetico outside Columbus Oh. Creative home theater techs here in las vegas came in with their meters and showed me which panels to purchase and where to put them!
We have just enough room for 4 reclining theater seats.
The sound and picture are outstanding! Interestingly, I sealed the room too well and I had to put a quiet split model air conditioner in the wall because the room became too hot!
I wanted a bigger dedicated room but that's all my lot would accommodate. You have to play the cards you're dealt!
