Default Re: Titanic Themed Theater in Nashville

Right but the theater is circular?

Why must architects get "cute" and design such horrible acoustical designs?

I was in a house equally as nice and it had an Octagon shaped HT. The man had a Meridian/Wilson combination. It sounded... like a NAD/PSB setup. While I thought it sounded good it had little of the characteristics I associate with the equipment being used all because of the incredibly dumb idea of putting it in an octagon shaped room. Each angle was equidistant (is that a word?) from each other. It was horrible.

I see this nonsense all the time. Shouldn't an architect be designing the room for what it's to be used for?

I had to explain to my architect that I wanted a Rectangle and using the Golden Rule of measurements in addition to the crazy floating floor, ceiling, walls. He was actually stunned to realize it all makes a difference.
