Home Theater/Media Room

Display Requirements

This Media Room has been designed in mind to take either an HDTV or a Projection Screen. It has also been designed for a 11.2 Home Theater Configuration. All required and optional/spares cabling, both electrical and A/V has been taken into account.

To determine the best seat-to-screen distance for a projection screen or HDTV in a dedicated home theater, THX recommends dividing the diagonal screen by .84. For example, an HDTV display with a 65-inch screen divided by .84 equals a 77-inch viewing distance (6.5 feet).

If your HDTV is going in a living room with limited space, THX recommends the following set-up:

50 inch class TV = 5-7.5 feet away

60 inch class TV = 6-9 feet way

It might seem that THX is recommending a very large screen size for your room. But, it’s important to note two things: 1) THX screen size recommendations are based on recreating an immersive cinematic experience in your living room or home theater, and 2) the biggest consumer complaint about HDTV purchases is that they wish they had gone bigger.

NOTE: Most of the images you will see in this section were taken from my documentation when I was still building the room. I usually keep some sort of documentation when building something because when the project is all done, it is nice to know where and what's underneath the walls! The electrical wirings are also documented.
