We have a 20 month old and a 4 month old, thats why the speaker is so far back. Well also for looks to. This room is our living room, which on the other side where I was standing was the kitchen, so we would prefer the equipment to be heard but not seen. Its a narrow house width wise... Polk really seemed to leave their customers high and dry, but not listing products on their site as discontinued, and not offering center in walls anymore. The LC 265 were not cheap my any means.
I considered refinishing it, i can't imagine it coming out good though. its also a $750 speaker so its not really cheap.
Can anyone recommend a good center from another brand perhaps (inwall)?
