Two questions from a newbie to the experts:

1. Anyone ever use a cooling fan to cool an in wall control panel which will include projector, Reciever, DVD/VHS combo, CPU, and anything else I can jam in there? I thought about CPU cooling fans, but not sure how to power them. Whatever I use needs to work well and must be QUIET.

2. Center Channel Speaker above or below projector screen? Why?

If this is posted in the wrong area, somebody please advise on where to go. I'm new here and I don't want to make a mess.

Cooling fans - check out http://www.fullcompass.com/product/230834.html

center channel speaker - I have my Definitive Tech CLR2002 mounted below my 96" diagonal 16x9 screen. It is less obtrusive and easier to place than above the screen in my case, but I think either way would probably sound the same.

BenQ W1070 front projector, Definitive Technology BP2002 towers, Def Tech CLR2002 center, Def Tech BP2X surrounds, Def Tech PF15 subwoofer, Denon AVR3300 receiver, Panasonic Blu-Ray player, Apple TV, Roku device, Monoprice HDMI switcher

For a DIY fan solution look into this:

1 - Programmable outlet thermostat (see link below)
2 - Silent PC fans
1 - 5V DC transformer

You connect the PC fans to the transformer, and plug the transformer into the thermostat outlet. You can program the temperature that you want the outlet to turn on and off.

You could could also place the center channel behind the screen if you buy an acoustically transparent screen.
