FEATURE ESSAY:

1. Synopsis describing the project goals, special features, or nuances.

lht04c_200.jpgThis project was part of an extensive remodel to our client’s home. Upon our first meeting we began planning a blend of traditional styling with regards to appearance, and high performance when it came to the entertainment system. From our clients responses we believed we have achieved both equally.

2. Did you encounter any challenges or limitations in the design of the system or placement of equipment? Please describe the control system.

One of the biggest challenges with regards to the system was that halfway through the construction process, it was discovered that the basement was allowing water into one of the corners. Once the source was determined and rectified, construction returned to normal.

3. Please discuss the acoustics including speaker placement and calibration as well as the SPL reading. Discuss the ventilation of the room.

The room was treated with acoustical paneling on the walls and ceiling to control the sound inside the room. Prior to finishing acoustical panels, the walls were first covered with a concrete based wallboard to eliminate sound transfer to adjacent rooms. The room was calibrated to a 75 decibel rating per THX standards.

lht04f_200.jpg4. Did you calibrate the theater? If yes, please discuss the video calibration and any challenges you encountered during calibration.

The video was calibrated to ISF standards and the audio was calibrated to THX standards both with the Sencore suite of testing gear.
