You know, when home theatres go corporate, they really go big.
Opus AVC, Inc, is building a massive home theatre, ostensibly for a client, and man, did they ever build this sucker out.
They didn’t put it in a basement, for example–they dug it its own PIT. And they didn’t just dig, either–the ground in question was almost pure granite and had to be blasted out. Once there was a hole cut in the mostly granite soil, they then added concrete and cinderblocks to create a soundproofed environment that looks almost exactly like a fallout shelter. They covered over the concrete with fabric panels and added a whole host of equipment and options, like a pre-boot system that starts warming the equipment up when someone reaches the front door of the theatre / bunker, and a one-switch shutdown mode that deactivates the equipment when the owner’s done for the day.
Color me ALL sorts of amazed, folks. This is a positively monstrous system that’s bigger that some people’s entire houses at two thousand square feet. WIth three rows of seating and a host of gadgets, this sucker definitely qualifies as a sweet home theater setup.
