Iconic Home & Home Theatre
Rapallo were contacted by the client in late 2019 to build a small home theatre in a formal lounge space in a recently renovated room.
Initially it was spec’d to be a in-ceiling and in-celling projector lift, but once the roof spaces were removed and the area investigated the space wasn’t going to work. Working with the client we revised the spec and added a shelf mounted projector and a on-ceiling screen. The brief for the speakers where they have had to deliver great sound for movies and music, but they had to blend with the library style of the shelving / books.
As the room was already constructed, we ran chase’s thru the walls to get cabling for the speakers / HDMI and power to the right places. We then repainted the walls and ceilings back to the original spec.
For sound we used the ELAC range, with bookshelf speakers for the from L+R channels, and a matching centre that was mounted above the fireplace. SVS ran the subwoofer and the projector was a white Epson 8400 to blend it with the room on the custom shelf we built to mount it. Running the room was then a Yamaha AVR with the BluRay player and Google ChromeCast.
The project was a challenge as it was interrupted by COVID lockdown No.1. So as it wasn’t finished we quickly DIY’d a system for the client for the lockdown duration, and it was then completed once we were back at level 2.
The project consisted of the following Rapallo AV Design & Build services:
- Onsite AV Consultation – to ensure the setup matches the clients brief and the environment its being used
- Speaker Optimisation and Positioning
- System design and aesthetic matching
- Project Management
- Rapallo preferred suppliers
- Installation & setup – installation of the products / testing and training.
- Post installation Support
