I was looking to get some thoughts/recommendations on what knowledgeable folks would do with an empty wall adjacent to a bar in our basement that is going to be housing the viewing area (screen of some sort). Part of the criterion is it cannot look like an Armour (bad spelling) 10 years from now.

I was thinking of having a built-in cabinet to match the bar that went no higher than 36 inches. Within the cabinet speaker wires coming from out of the walls. About the cabinet on the wall would be another outlet behind a possibly mounted 70 inch TV so that one doesn't need to see power line or HDMI cable going to the cabinet. However, We have to allow for possibility of projection screen in the future.

1. Would you not bother with a cabinet and just have a bar wall.
2. Would the center speaker go low or go high.
3. How hide would left and right rear and front speakers be.

Just interested in some general thoughts. I know this is pretty open ended.

Thanks for any suggestions.

1) bare wall - more flexibility
2) doesn't matter as long as the speaker can be angled towards your ears
3) ear level
