Hey!

Here's the start of my home theater. Not sure where to put the center channel yet.

Tell your wife to move all of her crap out of the way so you can put your center speaker on the top shelf!

Maybe they're his nick-knacks? Either way that shelf is the perfect location for the center channel. Anyone think the two fronts are too high?

They're maybe a tad too high. The tweeters should be more or less ear-level relative to viewing position, right?

Oh quit being so nice about it David, they're way too high. Unless he's listening to his stuff on a 31" stool, they're way too high. Front ported bookshelves would have suited this setup better. However, I don't know the whole story and don't know if he has a wife that he has to compromise with, I don't know. Ideally I would say chop that entertainment center up and use it for fire wood and get a good TV stand that will allow to place the floor-standing speakers on the floor. It will also increase sound quality and stage since the some of the sound won't be droning around in that cabinet shelf especially if those speakers are rear ported.

Ha, ok... you got me Kenny. I'm being too nice.

Seems like way too much of compromise to shoe-horn what would otherwise probably be a half-decent HT rig into this wall unit.

At least he's got some nice looking jams and jellies at the ready under the TV. Upload

john you had me laughing, very funny shiitt I keep steeling your smilys, and dont worry about john hes so hungry he will spread that candle wax on a english muffin so fast that it wouldnt matter what you told him it was, anyways I didnt post this thread a wile back because I dont like to bash people in the bragging area, we are all proud of our systems and thats why we put them in hear, the center could go up top but touching the tv, and the front should be replaced with some nice front ported bookshelves as sujested, unless your hole family is 8" tall and you like to look down when watching tv, then the upper shelve will be fine for the center
