Read this case study to learn more about the New York Dream Home Theater project we did for Lon G!
Lon G is a lifelong home theater enthusiast who lives in New York state. AVS Forum build thread is "My Dream Theater - Dream Team".
Lon G approached Acoustic Frontiers in 2017 to assist in improving a theater installed in 2011. Initially he was in the mindset of tweaking, rather than redesigning, the theater and sought professional assistance to improve the acoustics.
As we worked together, it became clear to Lon that his existing room was a major barrier to audio/video performance. To realize his home theater ambitions he needed to do a major theater overhaul!
Thus, the "New York Dream Home Theater" project was born - incorporating a complete replacement of the speaker system and electronics together with an increase in room length coupled to state-of-the-art acoustics and aesthetics.
