Re: My Redskins Theater

6.1 adds a 6th speaker in the back so you have surround left, surround right and surround back.

If you have the right reciever and decoder it will make all your 5.1 surround sound into 6.1. It's really nice. They make 7.1 too but i'm not there yet

SO if I understand that correctly it will take a DVD that is mixed in 5.1 and convert it to 6.1 and a live broadcast as well?

Re: My Redskins Theater

yeah, but not all recievers do that so if you're looking into 6.1 make sure it will decode and mix to 6.1. Pretty much the sweeps from left to right go through the center and it mixes the stuff that is in stereo in the back through the back center too. It's pretty nice.

12.1?!?!?!? People are seriously starting to just "make up" channels for sound. I mean each speaker MIGHT have like one or two sounds come out of it every few minutes with that type of channel-age. LOL

I know the jerseys are old (Smoot and Coles) but I bought them a while ago and who woulda thunk they'd both be gone. Besides they have almost no value on ebay now too.

I've done all the work and installation myself and with the help of my dad and brother. I know it doesn't seem like much, but when you can watch all your Skins games on a 110" screen in 6.1 surround sound, and play your skins franchise on Madden and NFL 2k5 on the same size screen, it makes all the difference.

I'll post updates too as I do more work.







Are you my daddy? LOL I believe I may be your long lost son. You could just go ahead and make that my room.

I designed it myself and had it printed up at 24 x 36. It list the theater equipment ala a movie poster. I am thinking of doing up some more as I can get them printed very, very cheap.

at that size, you're looking at about $20.00-30.00 for the print, but you'll need someone to do the art too. I'm a graphic designer and I printed it in my office, where we do marketing and advertising. So it cost me nothing. I did my own art and printed it on a poster paper.

Re: My Redskins Theater

Would there be any way to repost these pictures? I'd love to see another great Skins Room.
