Never having done soffits before, I did a lot of research on AVS. The purpose of the soffits in this theater was multi-fold; hide the HVAC supply ducts, act as an HVAC return duct, and provide a light tray for upward rope lighting. Using 2x2s and MDF, I installed the soffit around 3 sides of the room, installing the flex duct toward the front of the room and the return in the rear. Instead of painting, I wanted to wrap the soffits in fabric and this allowed me to build the tray portion at the same time. With the fabric stapled to a border piece, installation continues and the fabric gets stretched to the wall.
