    i`m looking to build a dedicated ht,my question is, would it be worth allocating 2-3 ft at the back of the ht to house all the av
    equipment and the projector,do those of you who have dlp/lcd projectors find the
    fan noise/heat generated bothersome.
    I don`t have a projector yet but i want to cover all my bases.
    has any one made a hushbox,or sited the projector in a seperate room,do you have to use special glass and should the lens be against the glass.
    Lastly i have never seen a projector in action,lack of demos available on the island.
    what would you recommend up to 3k,would be used for
    dvds,sky football,pc games and surfing the net.

    thanks

    I just built one for my Sanyo PLV30 , yes the fans noise bothered me big time, really found it ruined some movies, but then again the Sanyo runs at 38db.

    Like Ricky, i have the sanyo projector. It bugged me big time so i have built a 'quiet' box. It doesnt silent the thing, but it does cut out a worthwhile amount of noise. Heat can be a problem mind you so i need a fan to keep the box cool. If you have an option to have the projector in another room, i would do it.

    Thanks guys,i think i will build seperate room,as i`m not a fan of
    too many action films,so many of the films will have quite passages.
