This Hocking home theatre has all the makings of a traditional cinema, with the professional grade technology to match. The clients required concert level audio, TV and movie integration and interior design that would live up to its cinema name. An obstacle faced by IQ was the shape of the room.
The area was square, which is a risk for uneven bass due to its deep peaks and null standing waves. To contest this challenge IQ installed 4 bass drive locations, two were placed in the front and two in the rear to ensure pristine sound throughout the room.
The clients were focused on making their cinematic experience as authentic as possible and required a very high SPL (Sound Pressure Level – the higher the level the louder the audio) for audio intensity. IQ chose to install a pro-studio active speaker system for blockbuster worthy sound.
It was important for the heavy speakers not to ‘tunnel’ the picture and distract the viewer; therefore IQ used a custom screen mount to present the image at face of the speakers, which also provided additional equipment space. Now this Hocking family can enjoy epic movies through both sound and screen with a reference level audio resolution of 105db from their seats! Smooth high-resolution sound also covers the full audio spectrum from 20hz and the twinkling star-lit ceiling ensures unforgettable movie nights no matter the film.

Scott and his team provided highly professional advice and service throughout out home theatre construction phase, as well as, after service. We were blown away with the end result. Our home theatre has the picture and sound quality that rivals a cinema. We use the theatre daily and rarely go out to the movies anymore. Scott and his team worked with us every step of the way within our budget. Scott’s passion for his work is infectious! He and his team go the extra mile which is so rarely seen these days!Kellie Logan
Nearly 8 years ago our cinema room was installed and calibrated by IQ and after a few intermediate sound calibrations over the years I did not hesitate to engage them again for a much-needed general overhaul. It’s a hard room to configure because it has a cinema room function but also doubles as a cozy relax room and Hi-Fi Cinema lounge. It’s the combination of the right equipment, acoustics, calibrations and controls that makes all the difference over a set of individual high-quality components. The perfectionist professionals from IQ did a magnificent job – again. Thanks guys!Tom & Amber
