BAR SETUP IN LIVING ROOM
- this video is sponsored by lg. hey guys, this is austin. today we're building a home theater setup. essentially we'll have tworecliners against this wall and soundbar and projector. i think it should look pretty nice. if i can figure out howto plug my chair in. oh, uh oh. (laughing) you guys look so ridiculous right now.
- ken is extremely comfortable. - you guys can built the rest, right? - oh, so is this a projectorthat's not wall mounted? - so this is the projector. it's actually an ultra short throw. instead of putting in on thewall or something behind us, what we're going to do is going to put it on a table down here andthis is going to shoot up at our projector screen.
- yeah, so we just got thetv stand out of the box. so this is what the finish will look like. - no, i don't think itgoes on top like that. - wait, wait, hold on.- these are screw holes. - you know what, i think that's actually going to look pretty good. - yeah, not bad. - have you actually measured this? the projector's going to be little more
wider than this, or the screen. so this is our lg probeam projector. dude, this is totallygoing to fit on this. you actually did a reallygood job picking it out. that's so tiny. what's so cool about this isthat it's a laser projector. not like a normalprojector where you'll have to change the bulbs everythousand hours or so. this guy's going to lastyou 20 thousand hours.
so what i think we shoulddo is let's just set up here and display it on the wall. just to figure out roughly what size. especially i want to know how far we have to have it away from the wall. (laughing) wow, it's not even that dark in here and we can totally see it that clearly. look how bright that is!
- yeah, and it's graywall so it's not even-- - ah man, once we getthe projector screen up. so ken in his infinite wisdom decided to not just get us projector screen, get the most complicatedand crazy over the top one that amazon sells, because reasons. it's going to look nice, if we actually get it together correctly. are you sure the projectorcan do 120 inches?
hi, my name's ken bolidoand i'm gonna do the math. - square equals...120. - is it actually 120?- it's actually 120. - no big deal, minor worrythere, but we're totally fine. ken did the math,#kendidthemath. after a lot of hard work, we have our projector screen put together. now we have to move it back into the room because it was too big to fit in there
when we were trying to put it together. can this fit through the door? - not like this, we're gonna-- - wait, so pull the bottom out. so you roll it so that wecan get that side down? it covers the chip andscratch, so we're good. this is our 120 inch projector set up. it took pretty much all day,but i'm pretty happy with it. so, the projector itself is alittle hard to see right now
because we have our giant video light, blasting light in the room but i think this actually looks really nice. it does start with the probeam itself. what's nice about this is anan ultra short throw projector, it really simplifies our cable management. so, this is all connected toan xbox one x and a soundbar. normally we'd have to run an hdmi cable from this all the way up to the ceiling
or to the wall behind. instead, because it is soclose, everything can stay here and you get the addedbenefit of i'm not going to accidentally walk infront of the projector and block the screen. like if i did something like this. so we are maxing this guy out right now. it can handle up to a120 inch screen and well, that's exactly what we're using.
so what this means is youhave to be very specific on where you actually place the projector. if you move it closer, it's actually going to shrink the image. so that's why we have to keep it pretty much exactly right here. we made a slight mistakein actually mounting the projector screen. if we would have lowered it a little bit,
we could probably have tuckedthis setup in by a few inches. considering it took us liketwo hours to put that together, i think i can live with it. so even in a full 120 inches, we're still getting a 1080p image. if you look up close, you can actually see the individual pixels. once you sit down and kind of lean back, it's really hard to see.
of course, we have nothing but the finest in lean-back technology. when it comes to projector set up, the real advantage is in size. with the 120 inches to work with, that's pretty much biggerthan any tv you can get. when that really comesin handy, is for video. whether watching a movie or youtube, it's an immersive experience.
especially with the set upthe way we have got here with the recliner and thegood audio and everything. it is so nice to just sit back and enjoy whatever you want on this thing. something like this is usablefor more than just movies. you can game on a 120 inch screen. so yes, is it kind of overkill? absolutely. do i care? nope.
since this set up ispowered by the xbox one x, we're getting that 4k imagesuper sampled down to 1080 and it looks so, so good. now i do think that it's maybenot the most practical thing to play on such a giant display, but it's going to be hardto go back to a small tv. every tv is gonna seem small (laughing). no matter how good the screen is, you have to have good audioto tie it all together.
that is where the lgsj9 soundbar comes in. we actually did a videoon this a few months ago. this is the set up that'sworking in the office right now. i liked it so much that i boughtanother one for the house. of course, nothing can replacea full surround sound setup. but i've been reallyimpressed with the sound that you can get out of the sj9. not only does it have the topfiring dolby atmos speakers, but you also have apretty big dedicated sub.
so the rest of the setup ispretty much the xbox one x as well as a bunch of bits and pieces of. i got some playstations. we've got the original nes toploader. some games, most of thisis really for decoration. but we do have a hue stripthat's running underneath. mostly it just lookscool and ken went crazy with all my video game stuff. so on this side of theroom we have the recliners,
which are actually really nicebecause the screen is so big, you kind of have to lay back to see it. there's also an other hue light over here. right now i'm controllingit from my pixel, but i'm actually probably going to get a google home for this side. i also have google wifi tucked underneath. up top here is the onlyactual decoration in the room, a signed game of thronesposter from george r.r. martin.
yes, the room is a little bit bare, there's not a ton ofstuff in here right now. for one day, i'm really impressed with what we were able to put together. i actually have an extralg probeam projector to give away to you guys. be sure to check out thelink in the description to head over to facebookfor all the details. i will do my best to findlinks to all the stuff
in the description, including of course the probeam projectorbecause lg was awesome enough to sponsor this whole set up. i'm curious, what do you guys think about the actual set up itself? i think there's definitelya lot more work to do, but i'm pretty happywith how it's come out. of course, let me know what youthink in the comments below. anyway guys, thank youso much for watching
and i'm going to go watch this now.
