    Put in a jumper return or duct a return to the room.


    Jumper is ,correctly sized grille in ceiling of the room,plus one in the hall or living area,connected with the correct size flex duct.Path for the air to get back to the main return.

Projectors, Class A amps, and isolation transformers all are practically space heaters.
    A big screen and home theater receiver and not a HTIB . 11 x 15

    But that defeats trying to seal the noise from the room - that noise will go into the hallway where the return is - maybe it can be muffled somehow - insulated ductwork and bends - any ideas about that?

    Flex duct doesn't transmit a lot of noise,and your other choice is a ducted return,flex or ductboard the noise will not "get out of the room".


    Yes 90° turns help reduce noise.

    I don't get all the uncalled for criticism and angst from the so called pros. Not all homeowners are cheap dolts. Assuming so before he's had a chance to say much of anything is idiotic. I'd suggest seeing a proctologist for whatever's stuck up your bum.

    Just do what Dash says and be done with it mxylplik2. Put in a ducted supply and return. Make sure your company selects the diffuser based on the manufacturer’s noise criteria data. Make sure the ducts are slightly oversized and installed with a damper so it can be tuned to the airflow you need.
