Hi everyone. here is my budget movie room. it started out as a car port. finished off a couple walls built a tiered floor and custom built an aquarium where the window was. the whole thing was just under $2000! all the work i did including about half the props and the front row of seating, and the rest was ebay and pawnshops the sound system is klipsch synergy(sounds great) with a hitachi projector running component. let me know what you think. Thanks:)


here is the aquarium for inside the room

and from the other room looking in

Nice setup. I too went with Klipsch Synergy. I used the surrounds as the rears and bought some Klipsch S-10's for the surrounds in my 7.1 setup. Great sound. I built a carpeted/lighted deck for the rear seats which also houses four Kicker Comp CVR subwoofers. The sound and bass is absolutely incredible. I went with a light darkening 125" automatic screen that covers over a window, with theater curtains all around. There's a lighted grand oak entrance with matching curtains and a working full size popcorn machine. I really need to post pics. I spent about $3,000 for my setup (plus $1,500 for the recliner seats - holds six), but everything was last year's model and would have cost over $8500 at a retail store. The whole setup looks like a $15k professional setup, but it's amazing how far patience, bargaining, and doing it yourself can go.

sound-proofing? i hear egg cartons locked together and stapled to a wall will stop sound real nice. and then a wall over that to cover up the ugly egg cartons.

but... perhaps that is going a little too far, it's not like a recording studio.

but, noone wants to hear some neighbor honking their car horn over and over while trying to pick someone up that happens to be running late...

Very true, luckly the existing 2 walls are brick and i built in sound proofing on the other 2 with the help of my home depo book. outside the house at above tolorable volume all you can hear is a very slight bass sound from the woofer but it's not bad. the egg cartoons sounds like a good idea from what i read sound travel though the studs so the crates coverd by drywall should dampen the sound transfer.
