2007 CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Awards Entry: Best Large Home Theater, Level IV: $347,000 – $415,00

“Party Palace!? That’s what the client wanted us to create due to the fact that they planned on having several formal dinner and cocktail parties a year at their home. “Design a system that will blow our guests away? was the order of business and we were confident we could meet, if not exceed, the clients expectations. All we needed was a blazingly bright 178in. screen and about 7000W of gut-kicking power to deliver it.

We did encounter the challenge of providing enough seating for the homeowner’s request. We ended up coming up one seat short. In the end, everyone picks quality over quantity.

A complete set of construction documents were developed including a detailed set of room acoustics that called out for isolation of the room’s framing. This was accomplished by decoupling the walls and ceiling from adjoining structures. After the room was separated, sound suppression and wall barriers were put in place to help keep the room’s four 18in.THX subs from disturbing neighboring rooms. Then came the interior acoustics, and the designer called out for a plaster-type dome ceiling. Normally, this is impossible and strongly discouraged in any area when sound is important, but an innovative, mineral-based acoustic plaster-type product (BASWAphon) was located and installed to remedy this issue.

After it was all said and done we equalized this space and found the rooms response curves to be near perfect with over 130 decibels of reference quality sound we knew this room would be the hit of the party thanks to JBL.
