    Greetings! I'll begin construction of a modest home theater soon in my basement and will be limited to a 22' x 11' x 7'6" room. There is a door on the main floor to get to the basement. I have one 12" subwoofer currently and was wondering in terms of acoustics if it's best to have the theater room entrance itself "sealed" with its own door to achieve the best bass or would leaving the entrance open make little difference?

    Definitely sealed. Use a door.

    Agreed. Sealed room is always better if you can swing it. (See what I did there?).
    Go for the door.
