The wonderful windows that let so much light in actually hurt our daytime viewing.

So the wife mentions something about putting a TV above the fireplace. I am in agreement. This would help with daytime viewing as well as increase floor-space. The kicker is she does not want to buy a new TV since the 52' works. I decide to recess the DLP into the wall above the fireplace.

Cut a hole and re-enforce due cutting the studs. Ran in-wall speaker wires for the LCR. also made a custom panel that sits on the left side of the bump-out for connections to the TV.









Built a box for the TV from an old entertainment center.

Damn. I'm not sure I'd have gone to the effort to recess a DLP in this day and age. But it sure looks good cool.gif

I agree but the W.A.F. was in full effect.
