That looks great and great job on the layout. I can imagine it took a lot of trial and error considering the shape of the room. I notice your L/R are angled outward, does it make a difference in widening the soundstage for you?

Sorry for the late reply, didn't see this until now.

The L/R isn't angled... it's a photo issue. I used one of those "270 degree" shots with the camera so the left of the picture is actually 90 degrees to my left, and the ULS-15 you can barely see on the right is 90 degrees to my right. It makes the L/R speakers look like they are angled outward.

I really wish I could get some full-range speakers up in front, but without tearing down walls I can't get the seperation I need to put them in.

I still think Chris, if you plan on staying in that place any longer you need to rearrange the entire layout and place the TV and main speakers on the other side of the room so when you walk into the room you would see the system. Pay half my air fare and I'l come out and help.

It's a big project... that darn back wall has a large window and I shudder to think about all the wire that would need to be run. It took 2 guys two complete days to do the initial run through the ceiling, and that didn't include running the directv or cat5 line...

... and spending your own money to help my poor a** out? Forget it. I'd foot all the airfare, and I'd have to fly your wife out too. I'm not quite there yet... but ya never know - it's awful nice in Arizona in the winter (of 2012).

Huge thanks Al!!

After a 2 year hiatus, I've made the following upgrades:
Painted the room maroon, Added a MiniDSP for subwoofer EQ (amazing piece of equipment btw) and purchased a Epson 3020 Projector and am now just waiting for the Jamestown 120" 16:9 screen with Seymore Centerstage XD screen to come in (currently 7 weeks... no UPS shipping notification yet). I'll update pics once everything is set up! The screen should reach from the left pillar where the tv currently sits between, to the right end of the closet. I took out the door this week.
