What was annoying is some people would tell me not to pick a house based on tv placement but its like, what do people do a lot in their homes.. watch the tv! Why not pick a house based on something you are going to use often.

Couldn't agree more. When we were looking at houses, before we decided to build, that was huge in my criteria - had to have a room that would function around a HT.

Got the RF-7's and RC-64 in place - now i just need to run Audyssey sometime today. Had baseball pictures and an Easter egg hunt for the kids yesterday morning, so just barely had time to get them in place. These things are massive! I was able to get them in place by myself, but it took some clever maneuvering. Not something i would want to have to do often. Can't wait to fire up The Dark Night Rises after I run Audyssey.

TV placement was our number one criteria when we built and closed 6mo ago. Had to move the FP to the corner, but the room was big enough to accommodate and then some. Never understood people who get a house and then are left scrambling on where to put the TV. This is not a compromise I can make.

We just moved 3 months ago and it was also a factor we looked at. In our old house is where I got upgradeitis, it shrunk our room a lot going from Rb-51's to RF 82's, and we had a 52" above the fireplace and when I got my 70", you really had to look up, I also had my RC-52 on the mantle so it was up there. If we didn't have high enough ceilings to go above the fireplace, our room would have been crippled

Looks great Tom! Did the cherry color hit your expectations? From the pics they look good with the floors and decor.

Nice room Tom….I like stone fireplaces.

In a friendly little debate about Klipsch vs BIC speakers in the BIC thread. I still don't understand how people can't clearly see that the BIC cabinets are way too shallow in depth for good bass extension...

Getting ready to put a pair of RB61II onto the side-clamping Pinpoint AM41 mounts for front heights and I'm getting worked up debating whether to use the little wood screws that came with the mounts (a permanent choice from which there is no return) or some kind of adhesive solution (blue tack? Velcro strips? Command strips?) to make sure the speakers stay attached to the mounts.

On one hand I'm really impatient and want to just sink those screws in, but on the other hand I don't want to accidentally wreck them.

Can anyone speak to what you did, and how it's worked out?

3M makes a red backed grey mounting tape, i think if you use it on the sides and bottom it should be more than enough to keep the speaker in place.
