Toan, There are a couple places you can start. Pick up the books "The Master Handbook of Acoustics" and "Sound Studio Construction on a Budget" both by F. Alton Everest. While they don't directly address home theater they do address the issues in any listening room and the construction of said room. From there you can dig into places like ASC and RPG for an idea of the type of room treatments are available, etc. This is just a start. But in general you want to have lots power available at the right places from dedicated lines and breakers. Lighting on a separate circuit, etc. If possible have the equipment on a separate ground from the rest of the house. If you are running monoblock amps then each amp with opposite legs of the 220 coming into the house to further cancel noise, etc. I am sure you get a lot advice from people here. You might want to also look through the archives at Stereophile. I there are a lot of room and power tweaks listed. Cheers and have fun – Dan.
