First time poster here. You people are crazy, a good kind of crazy. I've always had an interest in A/V stuff, but after perusing this website, I realized my setup was in need of an upgrade. I previously ran a 8 year old 500 watt Yamaha 5.1 with the small satellite speakers and sub it came with to go along with my 60" Sharp LCD that just sat on a table. So I decided to do a complete overhaul with about a $1,500 budget. The sitting area measures about 10X25.

Existing equipment:
60" Sharp Aquos LCD
Xbox & PS3
Fios HD Box

New additions:
Pioneer VSX-1122 1100 watt 7.2 channel receiver
Cheetah Articulating Wall Mount
Sonax black component bench cabinet.
(4) Cerwin Vega Ve-5M Bookshelf speakers
(1) Cerwin Vega Ve-5C Center channel speaker
(2) Cerwin Vega Ve-8F Tower speakers
(2) Polk Audio PSW505 subwoofers

I was rather limited in the placement of my speakers in regards to the Surround Rears, so I decided to go with Front Heights instead to add more to the field of sound coming from the front. To mount the Front Heights, Surround, and Center Channel I put my carpentry skills to the test and fashioned up some shelves for the speakers. I positioned the speakers according to Dolbys website with exception to the Front Heights.

That's pretty much it. I'm definitely going with a projector and retractable screen as my next upgrade. But how that will work I have no idea just yet. I was thinking i could mount a projector here : but that really only leaves me with a 10foot throw which leaves me with a max size of like 120" i think. If I were to mount it slightly further back on the rear ceiling, would the column that sits in the middle of the room cause any interference? I figured maybe a few feet wouldnt obstruct the picture, but I really dont know. I'll probably start a thread in the projector sub forum in the future to gain some more insight as to the flexability of positioning, but for now any thoughts? I figure ill be looking to spend between 2-2,500 on the projector and screen when that time comes. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to this new addiction. If you have any suggestions please don't hesitate to voice any and all opinions.

you should move your subwoofers away from each other so it will give a smoother bass response in your room.
