    Surround sound is handled via an Onkyo TX-SR805 receiver.

    Agreed ,return looks too small.

    What size supply ducts?

    The supply air is going somewhere ,which could be part of your problem.What's above the drop ceiling,what might it be connected to??

    I will likely be asking them, down the road, to make the theater its own zone (I have Carrier Infinity zoning). So they would need to make a new zone for the theater room. I believe you can have 8 zones total with Carrier Infinity -- I just have 2 now (the basement/main floor together and then the bedroom level).

    But that's not under warranty, as zoning the theater room wasn't included in the original plans, so right now I'm just trying to get them to make it work as it was built. I don't have to pay for that -- still under the one year house warranty.

    I also might have them divide the basement into two zones -- with the theater room as one zone and the rest of the basement another zone.

    Regardless, I want a thermostat in that theater room eventually.

    Above the drop ceiling is all the duct work for the house -- 3 trunk lines (one for the 2nd floor; one for the basement/main floor combined and one return).

    There are two small supply ducts in the drop ceiling (you can see one at the very top of this picture) -- they used flex duct coming off the trunk for the basement/main floor zone for this:

    I think what he's asking is what does the wall chase connection look like at the ceiling line. You should be able to pop out a ceiling tile and see/take picture at that point.

    I'm thinking the theater room air is being returned over the drop ceiling into the other area of the basement.

    The fact that the return is too small,but the supply air doesn't diminish with the door closed,would lead me to think you'll need more supply air,to get it to heat as well as the other rooms.

    There's no filter in that style of return.. chances are he has it at the furnace itself.

    I though it dropped behind that table with the latch on the bottom.....hard for me to see it ends at the table top. Thanks.
