Nice..... I like the Sierra's, they have really done well in all of our speaker shootouts, with a number of different brands listed in this thread, I think the Bamboo cabinets are really something special.

Now, you just need to get rid of that Wicker thing in the corner and balance the whole thing out with Dual 15" subs, one on each side.... That would be the way to go IMO... HSU has a Mocha colored ULS-15 that would perfectly match your console....

You could put that wicker thing on one of the subs...

tpLouKY,

I think you made a wise choice by keeping the Sierras. I just bought a Piano Black pair and a matching center. Excellent sound and the cost is just unreal, I am very happy with mine. Nice looking room by the way.

have you considered lowering the screen and placing the speakers above and to the side of the screen?

It would be more comfortable watching a movie without looking up so high and the vocals would seem to come more from the actors than from below them.

you could also orientate the speakers vertically like they are supposed to be

Should the speaker be "centered" based on the "width" from the tweeter to the woofer rather than the speaker cabinet itself? And if not, how do you balance the importance of the tweeter with the woofer on which takes priority?

Or perhaps just place it vertically to eliminate these issues?
