100,000 GRAND!!!

Sure pays to do stuff yourself. I built a 2400/sq ft home for about this much. And it included the home theater and contracting out electricians, plumbers, and the foundation!

Can you reverse your front and back and put your screen on the north (top) wall? This would give you an even stage and your rear surrounds could be on each side of the double door.

Center's are not that bassy. The TV's not gonna walk off. Just get some felt pads, rubber pads, or double-sided sticky tape. People here tend to over analyze at times. Everything is possible.

Depends on the center. I just sold my Infinity Beta 360 and that thing was bigger than most stands! Vibrations could be dealt with as well.

I will add this. The PSA's have such a wide stage that I imagine they make pretty kicka$$ surrounds. But I'm happy enough with my beta surrounds I probably won't upgrade any time soon.
