Looks great, congrats!

Have you ever tried the center speaker below the TV?

Regards!

I have tried the center under the tv and I do like it there but I am trying to keep the speakers away from my young son.

The third subwoofer is the Wharfedale sw150 that matches my other speakers. (It is in the 3rd pic down)

The bracket is just a flat center speaker bracket with a door stop on top (the pic blurs them together)

Very handsome wood finish on those speakers. Particularly attractive on the subwoofer.

If you have kids, I would put the speaker grilles on.

So I really enjoy the Pioneer Elite BDP-62FD, it plays my digital movies from my nas and plays my blu-rays well. The only thing that I wish it had was a good zoom/aspect ratio for blu-rays I like watching movies 16:9 instead of 2:40. But over all seems to be a good replacement.

They sound great! When people come to the house to watch movies they say its better than going to the theater. I would say that the weakest link is the sub, the sub sounds great with music but for the window shaking movies its just OK but that is why I have the other 2 subs. In all honesty if I did not have all the years mixing PA sound systems, knowing how good 15 and 18 inch subs sound, then it probably would do the job but I want to feel the movies in my chest. That being said the tonality of the speakers are amazing! When a surround sound effect circles the room it sounds the same in all the speakers and even the small rear 9.0's have great punch and clarity.
