California Dreamin' - Another AVS Home Theater of The Month!

Completion Year: 2021

Client Profile

Travis C. is a mechanical engineer and movie buff living in Silicon Valley. He loves to build things and converted his double-wide garage into a home theater.

Project Overview

Travis' home theater is a remarkable blend of his passion for DIY projects and his meticulous research in selecting high-quality components from renowned brands like KEF, Trinnov, and JVC. Recognizing the value of expert guidance, Travis sought advice from the AVS Forum community and engaged the services of Acoustic Frontiers to ensure optimal room design. With a strong foundation of knowledge and professional input, Travis took on the task of building the theater himself, resulting in a truly customized and exceptional entertainment space.
