    That room looks huge!

    It seems lately that a lot of the more recent system posts have very large dedicated rooms.

    Thanks WB, I now have room envy to go along with my speaker envy (thanks to Joey).

    Do you have everything through the wall or is that just a photo op?

    Thanks for the comments

    All the wiring is through the walls and the attic.If you look closely at the third picture you'll see we had to come through the ceiling with the wiring.Couldn't get through the joists on that wall because of the pitch in the roof.The Scripts are daisy chained for electricity with the Theater i which is plugged into the power center,this way there was no need to instsall extra electric outlets in the attic.The room took almost a year to complete,wife picked out room color,blinds,furniture,wall decor and the granite for the bar.I got to pick out the equipment,(comprimise is a wonderful thing).Kruppy room size is 21' x 23'.I installed all lighting which is contolled by the remote.Moved the Scripts several times to get the right surround effect ended up mounting them upside down for the best sound and look.

    Thanks Lex
    Those are windows,covered with simple blinds,ordered them tight,but some light does creep through along the edges,but for the most part it keeps the room pitch black during the day.
