Home theater setup 2.0

Home theater setup 2.0

My home theater setup with the latest additions being a Benq W1500, Visual Apex 106″ electric screen and a highly recommended Buttkicker 😁. Buttkicker is a transducer that shakes your sofa(it takes the output of your sub). Cable management done with Legrand brand hiding a 50′ red mere HDMI, power and speaker wire. An HDMI splitter lets me show the same source on both the TV and projector. Youtube made me remove the intro to the movie due to copyright issues…

Wiremold CMK50 Cord Mate II Kit- Raceways Cord Management Kit – The one I used in this video. These are identical to the ones I have in the video, bought more of these and I like them! Highly recommended!

BenQ W1500 1080P HD Wireless HD DLP Home Theater Projector

The 50ft HDMI cable with zero degradation, Red Mere technology!

ButtKicker Advance BK4-4 4-Ohms Low Frequency Transducer(mount to your sofa and will shake you! A whole new level of immersion!)

Projector Ceiling/wall Mount 12.8IN-17.3IN Adjustable Extension (White) from Peerless

OREI HD-102 1×2 1 Port HDMI Powered Splitter – Allows same signal to go to the projector and the tv at the same time. This one passes HDCP content perfectly fine.

    believe or not, the red that you are seeing is the light reflection from your camera's flash on to your camera's lens

    Hi. nice setup review, can You tell me if W1500 has side projection(horizontal correction) or it must be in the center only? cos I'm finding info only about vertical adjustments for w1500… can it be that w1500 lacks of ability which even junior benq models have??

    Love your setup…have you ever considered an ALR screen so you can comfortably view your content with the lights on? Check out the Dark Energy Abyss that has the equvelant performance of ALR screens for $3k-5k but sales at a fraction of that cost. See it in action at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NmrRf8wPuXw

    Hey I love that movie interface that you have running. Is that xbmc? How can get it done for myself? I normally download bluray rips from the internet and have about 4TB+ data and really long for such interface. Your help will be more than appreciated. Cheers!

    Looks real nice, if you want to improve your screen with light issues with all the windows look at paint your screen with some digital1crystal screen paints and give it a higher gain, with out the cost of a black diamond screen.
    Check out my outdoor screen i made and painted it with digital1crystal screen paint.

    Are you using a HTC one to film this? Looks like a notorious camera defect Ive dealt with. I just had my HTC one replaced because of the pink/purple in low light conditions issue. Google "htc one pink camera" and youll see what I mean.

    I don't know know why I dismissed the idea of using those cable management pieces where I rent, but it looks great to me.  Nice setup, thanks for posting this video.  My setup will be very close to yours when completed.  Our room and viewing distance is almost the same, so it looks like 106" screen is perfect.

    great setup…really like the way you have employed both tv and the projector for output…do you use an HDMI splitter for it? Also, would love to get a feedback on my seup…

    Just curious, what firmware does your projector have and have you had any issues with the frame interpolation in 3D mode?

    Props on the wire management. Was looking for ideas on that and I was afraid of maybe going a little too crazy on it, but after seeing so many youtube videos, I think its safe to say that ANY cable management is good.
    Thanks for sharing this.
