Nice setup. Real clean look to the layout.

I'm curious about the left sub. If the pictures are any indication, it is practically in open space. As such it is probably contributing very little. Just for an evening, try setting it next to the right one, or even on top of it just to compare.

I thought about putting the speakers in the wall, but I would like to upgrade to Paradigm Reference 60s or 100s next year and didn't want to cut holes for larger or even worse smaller speakers. I also use to have the two subs stacked but in this room it was really boomy no matter where the crossover was set. I was getting a lot of base on the right side and not nearly as much on the left. By seperating the subs I get a really even distribution of the bass. It now sounds like the bass is coming from the two front speakers instead of the speaker on the right. I know this goes against the norm for sub placement, but it just works in this room.

I'm at work right now so I can't give close ups of the stand, but I'll try to explain. Its really simple. Here is what I used.

1.) Radio Shack tube speaker stand. Unfortunately stands come in pairs so you have to buy two. $50.00. I sold one to my brother in law and he used it with his av2100 remote.

2.) Small corner brace. You know the "V" shaped brace with a hole on each end used to screw together a booksshelf from the inside so you don't see any screws.

3.) Small nut and bolt.

The speaker stand comes with two mounting plates and some screws to secure it to the stand.

1.) Using the stands mounting plate screw. Screw one end of the corner brace into the stand where the mounting plate would normally go.

2.) Using the small nut and bolt screw the other end of the corner brace to the LARGE mounting plate.

3.) Push on the mounting to bent the corner brace until you get the angle you want.

4.) Attach velcro to the mounting plate and the remote.

I hope this makes sense. Just in case it doesn't I'll post some close ups of the stand tomorrow. My camera died so a friends going to lend me his.

Alan,
I'm almost embarrassed to admit it, but I got the idea from watching Picard and Janeway using those arm mounted touchscreens attached to thier captain chairs on Star Trek. I know, I know this is real geeky but it worked.
