The seating plan
I have deviated from the original plan of making two rows for the seating with the 2nd row on a raised platform. First and foremost, we don’t really need that much seating capacity, generally speaking. The two rows would also make the HT room slightly tight, with the first row being too close to the screen. With an acoustically transparent screen planned, I would have to place the screen at least two feet further from the wall, keeping the LCR & Sub nicely tucked behind the screen.
This would essentially turn a 19 feet long room into slightly less than 17 feet. With a 150 inches screen planned, I would hate to sit in the front row 😀 Youthman seems to like his two rows based HT though, using around the same dimensions as mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AubrsBu-2nU
