HTE Pro Layout 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.
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 Theater Layout 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 THEATER LAYOUT?
A comprehensive residential theater room layout gives you the optimal placement of speakers, screen, seating and acoustical treatments in order to maximize the full performance capability of your equipment in your residential theater.
The layout 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 (DIY acoustic package available as an optional add-on)
- Floor plan plus front, right, rear elevations (left elevation may also be included if significantly different than right elevation.
- 30 minutes of phone or email support once drawing is complete.
- Equipment recommendations
Please note that this service is not a full theater design with detailed drawings of every aspect of the room's construction including fabric and paint colors. Shawn offers that service too, and in fact you've seen some of the beautiful rooms he's designed. The layout service is like a "light" version, offered at a fraction of what he typically charges to do a full design.
