The equipment is as follows, the screen size is 13ft diag, although painted on the wall the picture is fantastic with the DIY Theater screen paint. Preperation of the wall is paramount to a good result. I might buy a fixed screen one day but it looks impressive as it is.

JBL Speakers. 1 x EC35 Center Speaker
2 x E20 Bookshelf
2 x E80 Floor Standing
1 x E150P Powered Subwoofer

DVD player. Denon DVD-1920

Receiver. Denon AVR-2106

VHS player. JVC HR-J692 VHS 4 Head Hi-Fi Stereo VCR

Projector. Panasonic PT-AE900U

Screen. DIY theater White Platinum - Medium Contrast
Polymer Projection Screen with a gain of 1.05.

AV cabinet. Ultra series audio video component cabinet with metal screen door

Thanks, the rears are on the last column in the room, you can't see them in the pics. I added a couple of screen shots, these are untouched and show how clear a 12ft wide pic can be.Upload

Mate that is a good size room, but you need more surround loudspeakers, small ones of course that will give good overall performance, the surrounds need to placed along the sidewalls and the rear wall, in a horse shoe configuration, this will really, really warp the surround imaging around you believe me!

Look for a good pair of bookshelves types that have a good size bass mid, say 6 ½" most have an average frequency response down to 50Hz, and when set-up correctly and with equalization applied to it all, the whole surround effect will be truly be stunning!

I would say you have plenty of room at the front for a perforated screen, and via placing the loudspeakers and the sub bass behind the screen, well you get the picture don't you, and the capturing of the images via the digital camera of the front video imaging is WOW! Thou I can see a few contrast levels that are high, the colour saturation is brilliant!

You've got a good head start, take it few more steps forwards and you'll have a home cinema that is worthy of and most of the sub standard cinemas that don't have THX well they can keep it.

High numbers mate!

Thanks for all the positive comments, I really enjoy the room along with family and friends, it is worth the expense and I would encourage anyone with the means and space to build one. I did a lot of the work myself and the cost wasn't that outlandish.

Congratulations. You have done a very nice job and have not sacrificed audio performance for a good looking room.

I would work on your speaker placement but other than that, a great looking room and a very cost effective equipment selection with good performance.

Well done!!!!

The window shutters are great, but wy leave them and the doors WHITE painting them a darker color will help with light reflection from the projector back into the room

Again thanks for the feedback, the shutters are the wall color when they are closed but are white on the outside the same as the door for a color contrast when open. The door being white isn't a problem as it's far enough back in the room to not be a distraction when watching a movie.
