A MOVIE THEATER IN MY HOME !!! (MAN CAVE TOUR & HOME THEATER SETUP !!)


Hey what’s up guys! Welcome to another episode of Pan The Organizer,
where you and I work together to help you organize different aspects of your life! In today’s special episode, I’ll give you
a tour of my home theater! So it’s been a lifelong dream of mine to build
myself an actual theater within my home to watch movies, enjoy some Apple TV, or some
TV shows. And to watch all of that on a giant screen! Hey by the way, before we start the tour,
I know how complicated it can get with models and makes of electronics so I kept it very
simple. If you guys want to purchase anything that
you see in this video, I put the links in the description down below for you all to
check it out. So your typical home theater consists of usually
a TV and some sort of a soundbar to have a bit better sound than what comes out of the
TV speakers. So here’s an example of one of my home theater
setups where I have a Panasonic VT series 65 inch plasma which has won pretty much all
the prizes back in its day. It’s about 6 years old now, but still to this
day, it’s probably one of the best TVs that has ever been produced. It’s hooked up to a Polk Audio soundbar, so
it looks aesthetically clean and very minimalistic. So beneath that, you can see my PVR, my Apple
TV, and my Logitech Harmony Elite controller. On left and right of the stand I have some
nice Philips Hue ambient lighting. Those are LED lights. You can customize what colour you want them. Now although it looks and sounds pretty good,
I wanted to bring it one step further and create myself an actual cinema theater in
my house! So come with me, and let’s go have a look
at what’s behind closed doors! So behind this acoustic door, let’s go see
what’s in there! So this is it guys, my home theater! This is a real theater in my basement! Starting off with the speakers, these are
Sonus Faber. They sound amazing. They’re leather wrapped. I have a 7.1 speaker setup. The mega subwoofer. Now this is an SVS model. HUGE 13 inch driver. Tons of power. This thing weighs close to 150 pounds. Now what’s nice about this ginormous subwoofer
is that the metal grill, you can remove it to expose the massive audio ports and the
massive woofer. They’re all magnetized so it just snaps back
into place. So a closer look at my audio/video rack. This is my Onkyo receiver. You can see the 3rd generation Apple TV. My Oppo Digital Blu-Ray player. This is a 100 inch Stewart StudioTek screen. So this is ginormous! Almost 8 feet wide! So on the wall, you can see the custom acoustic
panels that I had made. These are made out of fibreglass. Custom made. So basically, this increases sound quality
by diminishing reflections on the wall. Now the walls you can tell were all painted
with matte black paint. Now this is essential when you have a projector
style home theater setup because you don’t want any light bouncing off the walls because
this will distract you from the picture quality. Ceiling height in the basement was lifted
to 9 feet instead of the standard 8 feet so I can fit this big screen. Now I got some pot lights in the ceiling which
are all remote controlled. Now you can’t have a proper home theater without
some nice motorized leather electric chairs. So these are some La-Z-Boy models. Super comfortable! So what I love about these seats is that they’re
motorized. So with the press of a button, there’s the
leg rest. It just reclines, you kick back and you enjoy
the movie! In the back, these are the surround back left
and right speakers. And this is the star of the show. So this is the JVC D-ILA projector. Now this is mounted to the ceiling. And it produces breathtaking picture quality. Amazing deep blacks and crazy contrast. To control everything, I have the Logitech
Harmony One controller. I also bought the new Logitech Harmony Elite
remote control. Now these guys control all the activities
and they replace all the remotes in the system. You can check out the review on my channel. All the wall outlets are black. So I have a lot of my Blu-Ray movies on a
rack for easy access. So a last quick 360 degrees of the setup. For better acoustical insulation, the builder
installed dual layers of Sonopan panels behind the gypsum boards in the walls. Here we are on my YouTube channel and let’s
play a video on a 100 inch screen! So that’s it for the tour of my two home theater
setups. So I hope you enjoyed the show! So my question for you guys is what do you
guys watch your movies and shows on? Do you watch it on your phones, tablets, on
a TV, what kind of TV, are we talking LED, plasma, OLED, do you actually have a projector
setup? Let me know in the comments down below! If you liked the show, don’t forget, as usual,
smash that thumbs up button. Leave your comments in the description down
below. I usually try and answer all of your comments
as I believe a direct contact with my audience is super important! You can follow me on social media: Twitter,
Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook. And in the meantime, keep it tight, keep it
clean, and I’ll see you guys on the next one!!!

  1. Ah. Finally got to your HT. Nice!
    I still have an older Hitachi Ultravision plasma 55" 55HDS52
    Gen 1 Apple TV, pioneer elite blu-Ray, McIntosh MX135 pre/pro, McIntosh Mc150 amp (mains), McIntosh MC7205 (bi-amp for center, rears), Velodyne SC1250 subwoofer Amp/eq, subwoofer: (2) TC sounds 12" woofers custom fabricated sealed enclosure (which took me a ton of time), Mains BW N801S, BW HTN1, rears Niles in wall (nothing special), Rotel power conditioner.

  2. Nice room and set up. Particularly liked the Sonus Fabers (nice to see audiophile two channel speakers in an HT). My system is Focal Sopra fronts and centre. NAD masters M17 4k pre M25 7 ch power amp, Naim 272 Naim 250DR Naim 555p power supply, Naim CDS3, Sony flag ship blu Ray. JVC DILA projector. Lumley lampros 300 rears, Dynaudio rears, Mac Pro, Sony PS4 pro, VR, Xbox S. LG 65 inch 4k OLED. Rel S5 SHO sub. BK sub, sunfire true EQ.

  3. I have a 5.2.4 system in my bedroom (20 yrs old, live with parents lol) with a Denon AVR-X4300H driving Onkyo SKF-594 fronts, Onkyo SKC-594 center, 2 Onkyo SKR-594 surrounds, 1 Onkyo SKW-593 sub, 1 Onkyo SKW-520 sub, and 4 Micca COVO-S for height, Samsung UBD-K8500 4K Bluray Player, and Samsung KU6500 LED Curved 4K TV. The speakers are pretty budget, the main 5 in 5.2.4 came in an Onkyo HTiB (a nice one compared to most), the heights are not high end either but sound great, and my TV isn't HDR, but I really enjoy my setup.

  4. I just build a movie theater in my room but i think i messed up on the speakers instead of getting some good theater speakers for my fromt stage i found some speakers from the lg cm9550 (look them up) and there missing out alot of midrange sound im using a sony 7.2 reciever the 770 model and a yamaha reciever too power the 2 12s that came with the 9550 and the bass and highs seem good im just missing alot of midrangea and im using onkyo speakers for sourround and center

  5. Hello paaaaan ! Je découvre cette vidéo via le lien de hier … trop bien pensée ta salle. Et super confort ! J’adore

  6. nice setup, very clean. i personnaly have a lexicon mc12, a bel canto evo6 for electronics, a snell acoustics sound system and 2 rel q200 subwoofers. "old" videoprojector epson tw-5000 on a 2.35 meters lumene movie palace screen.Lots of money but I enjoy my system almost every day for years. cheers from france

  7. Nice setup & good choice on the screen. I watch my movies on a 122” Cinema scope FireHawk StewartScreen . Had a JVC PJ, but just recently bought a Sony 4K to replace it.

  8. Have an Acer H5380bd 720p on a 115" homemade blackout cloth screen, rockin' a 5.2.2 Yamaha through Sony speakers from a PS4 and it does the job 4 us! Yours looks nice, too.

  9. You Use Matt Black. You should have done It In Dark Purple as this Is the Colour used In Cinemas. And I have done My room out In this and It has No Light Reflection at all. I have a 100ft pull down Screen as I use a Phillips Cinema 21:9 58" (Looks Twice that Size when on) TV to watch Ultra Wide Films without Black Bars. I will be getting a Projector and screen In that Ratio very soon. I could Not go back to 16:9. Nice set up keep adding though. I see room for Dolby Atmos like I have Plus 4k or better still 8k. Have Fun.

  10. I have a projector in my bedroom. Made my own flexible screen. Size is between 140-153 inches (I switch it every now and then. I'll never go back to a television.

  11. That is one awesome setup you have there! I just have a 55inch 4K OLED with PS4 pro and for soround I’m using my 9 year old Logitech Z5500 system because I’m having some problems with setting up my new soundbar, i think the darn thing is broken. It’s keep making such a high pitch squealing noises. 🙁

  12. Hey Pan, beautiful home theatre! it seems we share some common interests – I'm a car guy that does like to do some detailing (although I'm more of a driver than a detailing fanatic), and I'm into movies, home theatre, and music as well. It seems we've chosen many of the same car care and HT products as our "go-to" itemsl!

    My home theatre is a little older than yours – I also have a professionally-calibrated JVC projector (although an older RS2), a 120" Grandview motorized screen with a 60" LG plasma behind it for casual viewing, Energy RC-70 mains, RC-LCR centre and RC-R surround speakers and 2 big PSB Subsonic 6i subwoofers for a 6.2 setup, and a Marantz SR7007 AVR. I use a Logitech Harmony One for control, and an APC S15 power conditioner/UPS to run all of the electronics except for the subwoofers, which are on a different circuit.

    My room serves as a general "man cave" used for music listening, socializing and working out, so it's painted medium beige, and I don't have any acoustic treatments (although I'd love to DIY some I just haven't gotten around to it). I know I could improve the PQ with some different colours, but I was willing to sacrifice that for a more pleasant multi-purpose space.

    I few years ago invested in some Palliser HT seating, with power recline and Buttkicker tactile transducers. I have young kids, so it's quite rare that I get to "open up" my system. I've found the Buttkickers to be a great addition, as they allow me to "feel" the movie even at lower volumes. You can add these to your LaZ Boy loveseat, they really improve the experience.

  13. British all the way. Meridian Audio in the front and Kef in the rear with M&K sub. TV is a LED Samsung 55". I plan on installing a projector for movies soon. 🙂

  14. Way to go ! Pan I’ll be retiring in a couple years an now you really gave me something to think about
    Thank you soooo much👍🙂👍👍

  15. "Ginormous " lol
    Mine is the Klipsch THX Ultra 2 Theater System ..your system is not bad.

  16. I watched this in 2018 and I have a home theater the only difference is that his is a proper home theater and mine is a projector lighting up a bedsheet in my unfinished basement😂😂

  17. Nice quality components. I specially like your vt65. It’s one of the last good plasma tv. I still have my 2 pioneer kuro elites.

  18. Very nice ,as you asked which medium We use to watch a movie,I just use Laptop but want to install a movie theater in my home Your theater is so cool so elegant ,I want just like that dude Thanks so much .

  19. When you played your YouTube video on your project and showed the YouTube Ad page, I thought this actual video turned to an Ad page! lol Amazing.

  20. One of the cleanest looking HT setups I've seen.I use a 55" Samsung 6000 series LED. Pioneer Elite SC-87 receiver. Sony PS3 for the Blu Rays. Adcom GDV-850 DVD player for listening to CD's. Mackie M-1400i DJ subwoofer amp..Energy RC-70 towers. Nuance Star series center and rears. Mission audio bookshelf mids. Dual Audiomobile Evo-r 12" in a custom HT enclosure.

  22. We had one but never used it haha. But I’m a 2 channel audio guy ( phile) Focal floorstander s / Sunfire Sub and Pioneer SX1250 ( love vintage) with Thorens TD166 Turntable. Conrad Johnson Parasound and LSA Bookshelves in another room with Sunfire Sub. Pioneer SX 750 with Boston Acoustics bookshelves in bedroom.
    Your Theater is awesome man👍

  23. Hey mate what are the dimensions of your room please? I’m about to make/design my man room/cinema room for sports and I love the look of yours there 👍🏼

  24. Your home theater settings good I'm home theater sales people india, digital king audio video home theater people

  25. Hi Pam, I envy you :). Nice neat and clean setup. Mine is very simple, all are low-end models of known brands. How I wish I can afford the high-end/models. 43' Samsung Smart TV, Sony AV Receiver, Assorted speakers for front-A: BOSE, font-B: Pioneer, Center: Pioneer, Rear Right and left: Pioneer, Sub-woofer: Logitech. I spent around $2,300.00. With a simple setup, I'm happy with the end result. Keep posting nice videos.

  26. i have small 120” screen would like to go wider 2:35 135” atleast. everyone says two subs even smaller are better, try put second ultra 13”.

  27. Nice setup. Are those walls really Matt black? They do not look black more like a dark gray. Those Lazyboy recliners are discounted when I followed the link. What are your room dimensions?

  28. Looks really nice, good job! I was a bit surprised to see no bass traps, but maybe it isn't needed in your setup? It would also be informative to mention the size of the room. I am currently finalizing my build plans for my home theater. My dream home theater! I have decided on the Magnat Cinema Ultra speakers in a 7.2.4 setup. The receiver running them will be Denon AVC-X8500HA and as for the projector I will most likely go with the Dell S718QL. The room size is WxLxH: 4,1 x 6,5 x 2,5 meters.

  29. I am still using plasma in 2018. OLED cannot match Plasma for RGB and has W (white) as an uncontrollable symptom.

    But my friends OLED looks amazing and I am now about to go over to the darkside.

  30. Those are some nice speakers being trusted to an Onkyo receiver. I would never run 7 speakers off of an Onkyo receiver unless they were crazy efficient and 8 ohm nominal without crazy swings. The one exception are Pioneer SC receivers. I wouldn't hesitate to run 4x 4 ohm surround speakers off of that Pioneer while letting a dedicated amp handle the mains. That Onkyo publishes ratings for 8 ohm loads with 2 channels driven and 1 channel driven for 6 ohms! 1 CHANNEL! and that's .9% THD at 1khz. Jeez, that's way too close to clipping for me. I wouldn't call that receiver 6 ohm compatible. And you have 7 channels. You can deduce from that rating that the receiver will crumble when driving 7 channels. I'd be impressed if it could do 25 watts/ch continuous, 20hz-20khz, @ 8 ohms, 7 channels driven. I understand there is duty cycle. But even then, if you like to turn it up even a bit, you are risking damage to the speakers in the dynamic scenes. There's no such thing as too much power. Too little on the other hand, brings risks of clipping and consequently permanent damage. For maybe $500 more, an Integra DRC-R1 paired to an Outlaw 7000 is a safer option and will sound better when you turn it up.

  31. I’m kind of surprised you didn’t have an OLED TV instead of the plasma. I went from plasma to the c7 LG 65" OLED and when I started using it I felt like I’d never actually watched a movie outside of the theaters in my life. It was probably the best 3 grand I’ve ever spent in my life lol
    Edit: I’ve never messed around with a projector but I know I’ll someday go for it because they are the best of the best according to one of my buddies. Nice setup, I’m really jealous that your’s is finished and mine is still a work in progress.

  32. You’re theater looks pretty awesome. The only big recommendation I will make is to put more distance between the rear surrounds so that both speakers are on either side of your head

  33. Front speakers should have the tweeters in line (horizontal) with the center of the screen or your eyes and ears will perceive different hightes in audio and picture.

  34. bic acoustech pl-980 and PL-200II-Sub why people are not talking about these speakers they are neck and neck with klipsch if not better ?

  35. Hi Pan! Love the set up. For more seating I added a back row and put it on a carpeted stage. Works great. Later.

  36. why don't you go for a bigger screen (ie. 120 and up). nowadays TVs are approaching 90 inches so 100 inch projector screen is not a whole lot bigger than a big TV

  37. For a home theater with a projector I would use the largest possible screen and make sure it’s acoustically transparent that way the front speakers can be behind it rather than needing to compromise on screen size to fit the speakers in the room.

  38. That's a clean setup man 👍
    Unfortunately I don't have a dedicated theater room so I have to compromise what I want to achieve.

    Back in the day I had a 63" Samsung plasma TV, I sold it for a bigger display. I'm currently running a 80" Sharp LCD TV. Also running the Epson Home Cinema 2040 projector.

    How I have my setup is I have my motorized 120" projection screen drop down in front of my Sharp TV missing it by 1/2"

    As for surround sound, I'm currently running a 7.2 system. The brain behind it is a Pioneer Elite SC-05. It was pretty expensive when I bought it new ($2000). As time gone by I ended up buying an THX certified external amplifier, hooked it up to my Pioneer. It's a night and day difference in sound. It plays louder with more clarity.

    My 7.2 speakers are all Polk Audio. Same models as I want the consistency in sound aka "timbre matching"

    In the near future I'm thinking of upgrading my display both TV and projector to 4K. As for surround sound, I'll be buying another Pioneer Elite receiver capable of Dolby Atmos, DTS X etc…

    For now my visual and sound experience hasn't changed. I'm still enjoying every minute of it. I guess that's the reason why I haven't replaced my current setup to the most current tech.

    Alright man again I did enjoyed your video, keep it up man 👍

  39. That's a beautiful set-up you've got there. Could you tell me the distance you chose to have your seat from the screen?

  40. What size is your room exactly? I have a 15'8"x11'3, and afraid those SVS are tto big for my room, of course I would eventually want dual, but I like the simplicity of your room. 👍🏼
