The Room With(out) A View. A 7.1.4 DIY ground-up cinema build

Your build is coming on great, but if you don’t have an internal door you are going to compromise everything about it. Sound quality will suffer, bass will be really difficult to control (you’ll get a significant build up in the porch are), lighting will be a major issue and sound proofing will be terrible through just a pvc door, an internal door here makes a significant difference. In my build, my external door is my weakest area by a long way with sound proofing, when my internal door is open you can hear a lot more from the outside than when it is shut.

Just my 2 cents......
ok, ok, i hear you all about the internal door :)

I'll add it to the list......:smashin:

Without seeming like there is an internal door police 👮‍♀️, I totally agree with Mark. The internal door and stud wall in my outbuilding has significantly reduced sound leakage and external environmental sounds coming in.

I’m just wonder what other kind of police we have in this thread. What next - Not-black-enough-black-paint police? :p
