Edmonds Big Screen High End Home Cinema

Project Overview

This project with incredible AV quality is currently under construction. The client contracted Theater Design Northwest to do technical design, installation and calibration for their dream cinema space in their new Woodway home. The customer, an avid audio/videophile, had done a lot of experimenting with different setups and had decided to really push the limits with screen size to viewing distance. The result was a huge 160″ diagonal Stewart Filmscreen  acoustically transparent screen with a Sony VPL-HW50ES projector as the video source.

The client already had a nice selection of excellent gear and we helped him create a hybrid component system using BG Radia speakers in custom fabricated enclosures by our firm. One of our custom fabric stretch screenwalls of Guilleford fabric provides the perfect light absorbent backdrop to the screen and also conceals the large L/C/R speaker arrays.
