HTE Pro Design Service
If you've ever done any large home improvement projects, you know how much work it is. Building a home theater is certainly no exception. In fact, the nicer the theater and the more performance you're targeting, the more details there are, and the more valuable a professional design becomes.
The planning is as time-consuming as the actual construction. There are dozens of questions you need to answer and so many of the decisions depend on other decisions. Worse, you don't even know what you don't know until you really dig in!
Where do the speakers go? Where do the seats go? How big should my screen be and where should it go for the best sight lines? Which acoustic treatments do I use and where do I put them? I've seen people asking all these questions, and it's a lot of work to even answer the questions, much less understand and implement them.
It can actually take months to read, learn, and understand all this information - and you could still make expensive mistakes! This is where the HTE Pro Design Service comes in. HTE has partnered with Shawn Byrne to bring you this service. If you don't know Shawn, his award-winning rooms are some of the nicest in the country, and he's offering up his talent and skill to HTE customers.
WHAT IS A PRO DESIGN?
What is a Pro Design and how is it different from a Pro Layout? The basic difference between a layout and design is client input. It’s a collaborative effort between the designer and the client to achieve total satisfaction for both aesthetics and performance based on the customers desires, needs, and budget. A layout is just the physics of the matter, and is not generally dependent on the look of the finished room. The detail provided from the finished Pro Design is more than adequate to hand over to a general contractor to construct the room.
The Pro Design service includes the following CAD drawings:
- Front Left/Center/Right speaker placement
- Surround speaker placement
- Subwoofer placement
- Seating placement
- Screen size and placement
- Acoustic treatment and placement using commercial products
- Included CAD Drawings
- Floor plan
- Four elevations
- Detail: Screen wall
- Detail: Stage
- Detail: Columns
- Detail: Basic ceiling plan (no complex lighting or design details)
- Equipment recommendations
- Two hours of phone or email support once drawing is complete
